Slatted Wood Tray

Reminds me of the wood pallets I used to play on as a kid when visiting my papaw at work. Plus, I’m a sucker for natural wood and clean lines.

SLR Camera Diagram Towels

I took three years of photography (Hey, Mr. Hoover!) so I love these. They would make really cute gifts.

Kerr Votive Lantern

Yeah, I want these.

Café America

This chair looks like chain-link fencing. Oh, wait, it is chain-link fencing. So cool.

Whirl Serving Platter

This is such an interesting take on the same ol’ party platter. I love it!

Avocado Salt and Pepper Shaker

A kitschy ode to an all-time fave food. (Plus, it sure beats ordinary salt and pepper shakers.) It’s functional and fun.

Shoot Ring

I’m a HUGE ring person, and this one is like art for your hand.

Wine Tote Bag

A cute little wine carrier, this geometric print bag is perfect for gifting. (Preferably with wine, that’s kind of the whole point.)

Conversation Chair

How amazing is this? I like that the name not only implies that it’s great for holding a convo, but that the piece itself is apt to start a conversation. With the bright color and amazing flow, this would be a great investment piece.

Chicago Neighborhood Poster

I’m a Midwest girl, and a Northwestern grad, so naturally I’m in love with this poster, which features 91 of Chicago’s unofficial neighborhoods in a big, typographic print. In the words of 30 Rock, “I want to go to there.”
