my new favorites is Folksy, a site that showcases the work of UK designers and makers. It’s fun to browse the fab selection of goods, and one adorable little bird that might be neat to have around the house is this guy. It could be a nesting area for jewels or even used for serving snacks to visitors. For an even bigger selection of these hand crafted ceramics, check out all of the designer’s work here.

Guest Hunter, Maj Anya DeBear

Welcome..

Maj Anya DeBear

Maj Anya DeBear

Maj Anya DeBear, this week’s Guest Hunter. Maj Anya is a textile designer and artist based in New York City. She launched her line of luxe printed scarves, Ursidae, after finding out that her father was dying of cancer.  The prints are based on a series of tessellation drawings made by him in 1975, and his last wish to his family had been that they help share his designs with the public.  She considers Ursidae a family company, hence the name, which translates to ‘the family of bears’ in Latin.  All of Ursidae’s scarves are named after members of the DeBear family, or Maj Anya’s close circle of friends.

Maj Anya grew up on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, but is half Danish and spends time in Copenhagen whenever possible (she will happily give you a whole other list of favorite things for that city, if you ask nicely). She collects vintage scarves and kimonos, and hopes that her pieces will be coveted and then passed down from generation to generation, just as her father’s prints were passed on to her. As a Dane, Maj Anya’s ultimate style icon is Karen Blixen, and Maj Anya is occasionally known to don one of her scarves as a turban in an attempt to emulate her.

When she isn’t working, she enjoys board games, fantasizing about time travel and listening to music with a good string section. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT her super cool picks and some local spots we can’t wait to check out.

Sleep No More

Sleep No More

Sleep No More

New York or heading this way? Go see Sleep No More. I’ll be honest, I haven’t yet, but I think I’m the exception at this point. Apparently it’s amazing and no two people have quite the same experience. Enjoy, I guess it’s like nothing else out there.

Edible Coffee Cup

Doesn’t..

Edible Coffee Cup

Edible Coffee Cup

get much smarter than this. Italian coffee brand Lavazza introduced an edible coffee cup that PSFK reported on a few weeks ago. The cup is just what it claims to be: 100% edible. Not completely sure about the availability, but be on the lookout and say good-bye to those paper coffee cups. Love this (and so does the environment)!
