  • BLTD Site Update

    Expletive! We finally got our site updated! That affects several things that you probably don't care about, as we didn't change much visually. However, you probably do care about the fact that we no longer need the app that you may have on your mobile device. Yes, the app worked, and yes, it looked okay, but now the normal BLTD site will load on whatever gadget you're on without the occasional hang-ups and weird landing pages that we had before. So, please say your goodbyes to the app we had, and say hello to the newly updated BLTD. Please add ...

  • Ikea’s Sinnerlig Collection

    If you haven't heard of Ilse Crawford's collaboration with Ikea, you must have been hiding away under a rock. Now that you've crawled out to enjoy the sunshine, you'll be happy to know that the Sinnerlig collection is finally making an appearance at some stores. You'll find tables and stools with cork tops on metal legs, woven baskets, bamboo lampshades, frosted table lamps, stoneware pitchers, pots, glass jars and bottles. It's slightly overwhelming, but you'll do fine. Just breathe slowly, stay calm, and take your pick. Personally, I couldn't resist the coffee table in dark brown- $99, can you effing believe ...
