Oakland-based artist Anjelica Colliard’s colorful “Magic Checker Plant” print intends to honor and celebrate nature and wisdom. With an ombre check border, the artwork features swirling, glorious flowers, stems and petals. The limited edition print (each of which comes signed and numbered) measures 10.5 by 13.5 inches.
Constructed in NYC from dead stock vintage 100% cotton, Steven Alan’s Double Pocket Alpine Shirt Jacket fits and feels like a well-loved thrift find, but looks like a high-end garment. Purposefully oversized to accommodate a T-shirt (or even a heavier sweater) underneath, the emerald-hued jacket also features plenty of rich textural elements. Cobblecord is a delightful gridded version of corduroy we were unfamiliar with before wearing this jacket. Matching pants in a lounge-y cut are also available.
Whether you’re sitting around the house in a snowstorm or walking down the beach in a light breeze, these colorful board shorts, hand-crocheted in Brooklyn, will set a playful mood. They’re made using 87% merino wool and 13% polyester, with both types of yarn made in Italy. Artwork by Gordon Flores is hand-embroidered over the knit, creating multiple layers of color, pattern and texture to admire.
Sold in sets of six by home decor brand HANDS, these Natural Orb candles function like tea lights but favor a handmade look and feel. Two inches tall and three inches wide, they fit into most places the common iterations do, but with a noticeable, design-forward presence. With a bulbous middle, they melt in on themselves when burning (and can become a bit messy). Depending on how long you leave them lit, the burn patterns will differ between candle, as they’re all poured by hand from 100% all-natural food-grade materials. They’re scentless, thus ideal for those with a sensitivity to airborne allergens, and colored with annatto, matcha, spirulina, black tea and safflowers.
Wonder Valley founder Alison Carroll’s apparel label, Al’s Big Deal, offers jumpsuits for all genders (and tie-dyed socks) in an array of colors and sizes. Our favorite, the off-white “Spilled Milk” version, proves versatile, comfy and practical. It’s made in California from 100% cotton twill and closes with both a metal zipper and snaps. When choosing your size—they start at zero and run through seven—the brand recommends accounting for 3% shrinkage, because these garments haven’t been pre-shrunk.
Made in LA from ring-spun 14-ounce heavyweight cotton, Mister Green’s General Psychedelics V2 hoodie playfully pays homage to a fictional entity—presumably where all the psilocybin research happens. The General Psychedelics Department logo (complete with cartoon-ish mushrooms) is screen-printed on the chest, and the brand’s logo is embroidered on the wrist.
Made from 100% cotton, Bien Mal’s “Beatriz” throw blanket features an all-over flower pattern and contrasting fringe edges. Measuring 50 by 60 inches, it’s sizable, weighty and soft—providing plenty of coziness. Whether draped on a chair, couch or bed (or even hung on a wall), the blanket’s cheerfully irregular florals will brighten any room.
Legent Bourbon and NYC-based menswear designer Todd Snyder join forces for the limited edition Bourbon Selvedge Denim Jacket. The accessory employs hand-selected Japanese denim produced on a shuttle loom in Okayama, which is then cut, sewn and expertly tailored here in the US by Snyder’s team. It’s based on the body of the fashion brand’s classic Dylan jacket but repeatedly nods to the bourbon and its unique, international production method.
Tanner Goods’ pragmatically named Record Rack holds 40 12-inch records within its tangerine-colored stainless steel structure. This stand angles each record backward slightly so there’s enough room for users to flip through their collection easily. Plus, the rack’s outward wings make for easy carrying. The nifty, minimal storage solution comes coated in a chip-resistant semi-gloss powder coat finish and makes your record collection the visual focus.
A playful pet pattern adorns AELFIE’s organic cotton Fetch! sheet, which has been screen-printed by hand. Made to fit most cribs, but the brand asks that you be sure it fits snugly (loose fabric is dangerous for sleeping toddlers) and wash before first use. The Pomeranian-covered print was designed by Hawaii-based artist Kim Sielbeck and will please pup-loving tots and caregivers alike.
Birdwell’s 11-ounce double-looped cotton terry Indigo Baja Hoodie doubles as a light towel, courtesy of its soft and absorbent fabric. Each garment is made in the USA and features a large pocket on the front and split hem sides. A real wood button secures the collar, while herringbone stitch reinforcements at the hood and on the sides prevent wear and tear. Perfect for sunset after a long day at the beach, this piece conjures a distinctly retro vibe.
Available via The Scope NYC—an online gallery dedicated to emerging designers’ furniture, lighting, and decor—Eny Lee Parker’s ceramic Ooo Lamp comprises three limbs, each of which acts as a pedestal for satin glass bulbs of varying size. Because they’re handmade, no two iterations of this lamp (or its two-armed sibling, the Oo Lamp) are the same. Measuring 23 by 6 by 21 inches, each lamp takes eight to 12 weeks to make and is available in four colors: White Sand, Skin #1, Terra Cotta and Brown Clay.
Available in black or white, Humanhome’s LYNEA lamp uses a standard North American outlet as its anchor and its flat powder coat aluminum neck runs upward against the wall from there. The innovative design renders any sort of internal wiring—like the type done to install a wall sconce—unnecessary. A brass hook provides added support. Though there are other heights available, this 40-inch iteration proves most practical, especially when positioned next to a bed or a desk.
Designed specifically for 2015 to current Apple iMac and iMac Pro, Nack Studio’s Base lends height and stability to an office set-up. The domestically grown and sustainably sourced black maple ash stand comes in two- or four-inch versions, allowing for variability in how you configure your workspace. Finished with a coating of OSMO Poly-X oil, the Base will withstand regular use and its microporous surface means it’s extra easy to wipe clean.
Crafted by Marfa, Texas-based Marfa Brands for Joshua Tree, California-based Wonder Valley, the Two Deserts Soap honors two high deserts—a distinction made for dry terrain at or above 2,000 feet elevation. Wonder Valley’s lush olive oil acts as the foundation for the soap composed of palo santo, juniper, cedar, eucalyptus, ginger and a natural smoke tinge. Free from synthetic dyes and foaming agents, this all-purpose and all-natural cleanser comes in packaging designed by LA-based artist John Zabawa.
Made from wildcrafted Creosote (the “quintessential desert scent”), organic rosemary and jojoba oil, beeswax and mango seed butter, Sonoran Rosie’s aptly titled Creosote Rosemary Cream carries notes of sun-soaked wood and wild herbs. Creosote heals sunspots, soothes sunburns, repels mosquitoes and other bugs, and aids in the prevention of infection, as the plant boasts antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Plus, this cream helps to heal tattoos and supports skin after other moments that leave it particularly vulnerable. Available in two or four fluid ounce packages, each cream is made to order.
