Join Facet Placemats

I'll bet that wherever you enjoy your Thanksgiving feast they won't have placemats as cool as these (if we actually were betting money, I'd make an absolute fortune).

Balise Pendant

Atelier de Troupe is hitting the right sort of note with their Balise collection. Just take a look at the pendant: a little retro Jean Royère inspiration moved this fixture from 'quiet modern' to 'quiet-yet-playful-modern', and that's the secret winning combination when it comes to sophisticated interiors.

Yogibo Bean Bag

If you can get past the fact that this is, in fact, a bean bag, let's ask this question: Does this or does this not look incredibly comfortable? I know, I know, it's really hard to get past the video-gaming-soda-drinking sort of perception we have of bean bags, and, let's be clear, no one is saying you should put this in your living room next to a Wegner Chair (the ...Read more
