Etsy Sellers on Dominomag.com

September 6, 2007

Go indie! Do you remember the etsy slideshow I pulled together for the online galleries over at Domino magazine? It was there that I featured some of my favorite etsy artists and apparently they received positive feedback so I was assigned additional slideshows. This time, each will be organized by category, featuring some of my favorite prints just like before.

Etsy Sellers on Dominomag.com
Here are the categories I’m working on (below), 15 artists per category.
1) Animals
2) Nature
3) Girls
4) Gifts

If you have any favorites to share, please comment with their links below. You may know someone really special on etsy that hasn’t had a lot of blog coverage yet and I want to make sure that I’ve considered as many as possible before making my final selection.

Animals and Nature should go live in September/October and Girls and Gifts should show up closer to November. I’ll post links here when they’re finished so you can check them out, so stay tuned!

Anthropologie Ditte Slipcover Sofa

September 5, 2007

This sofa is amazing. The pattern is glorious, I love the solid seat and the patterned back, the shade of green, it’s the perfect combination of simplicity and whimsy. Maybe I could commit to a patterned sofa, I’m wondering if I really could. Although I think I would snap this up in a second if I had a few thousand dollars hanging around because it’s lovely. And it’s very comfortable, I sunk into it at our local Anthro and was shocked at how comfy it really was, it doesn’t look like it would be a sink-yourself-in type of sofa. I love everything in this room, don’t you? It looks so laid back. And the colors are so soothing.

For me, when it comes to big purchases that I plan to keep for many years, I’m more interested in placing pattern in cushions, curtains, art, and rugs – things that aren’t in the $1,000 + range so I can freely swap things as I grow tired of them.

So to the reader who commented earlier that I’m boring because I don’t like pattern (nice thing to say, thanks!), well you must not read this blog regularly because everyone knows I love color and pattern. But I do shy away from patterned sofas because I have design ADD and tend to tire of looking at the same pattern for years and years. But oh, this Ditte sofa is calling… And so are these chairs. Chairs I can deal with, they can be moved from room to room, reupholstered for less than a sofa, and the initial investment is usually much less than buying a sofa.

Reader Questions

Reader Q: Office Chair HELP!

September 5, 2007

Marilyn Patrizio wrote to me asking if we could help her find a sleek yet comfortable office chair. She is looking for something around $250 or less. I instantly thought of Nicole from Making It Lovely and this post where she pulled together 9 office chairs in white that she likes – click here for details.

Reader Q: Office Chair HELP!
Maybe Marilyn will like one of these… Or, if you have any others in mind, please comment below as I know Ms. Patrizio is looking to order something ASAP as her current office chair has snapped in two! :(

You have to check out this post all about Danish designer Finn Juhl over on the Style Files.

House of Finn Juhl
House of Finn JuhlI love solid color sofas, I could never commit to a pattern, so this would be perfect for me in this lovely sand tone. So versatile, and look at the lines. Wow.

Borrowed Spoons by Heather Moore

September 5, 2007

Heather Moore (aka Skinny Laminx) wrote to me today (thanks, Heather!) about a new line of tea towels in her shop called Borrowed Spoons. But this pattern has a story, a story about how fellow bloggers inspired this designer. Another reason why blogs that write about the same thing from time to time is not such a bad thing, it can actually stimulate creativity!

Borrowed Spoons by Heather Moore
“It?s a kind of collaboration with some other bloggers, all fed by the spoon craze that rippled through the blogs a little while ago”, Heather continues, “Lisa Congdon, Lena Corwin and Kelly Cooper all took pics of their spoons, which I then used as inspiration (with their permission) along with my own to make this design.” Heather also mentioned that she’ll be donating a dollar from each online sale to a local schools feeding association.
