Héctor Serrano’s Air Heads Animal Balloon Set

never met a kid that doesn’t like balloons. So these Air Heads Animal Balloons are sure to be a hit. They are made by London-based Spanish designer, Héctor Serrano and come as a set of six including each animal pictured above. A+R Store  is carrying them. Pick up as set, pretty much a no brainer.

Cosy Lamp

Was..

Muuto & Harri Koskinen's Cosy Lamp, $200

Muuto & Harri Koskinen’s Cosy Lamp, $200

in the market for new lighting a few months back and the search was surprisingly difficult. I found some that I’m quite content with, but Muuto & Harri Koskinen’s Cosy Lamp would’ve been a hard one to resist. Made from mouth blown glass and completely understated, this piece is pretty much a work of art and sure to start some conversations.

POP! Handset

So..

POP! Handset $60

POP! Handset $60

maybe this is a nice to have, but how cool is handset?  It’s by French designer David Turpin and the gold colorway is a limited edition available at only A+R and one other store in the States. The POP! Handset has a high-quality speaker and microphone, a pick-up/hang-up button and when fitted with the appropriate adapter, can work with pretty much any mobile device or computer. Those who grew up using phones like these know the shape is super comfortable, not to mention it eliminates 99% of absorbed cell phone radiation. What more incentive do you need?

Rablab Colored Agate Coaster Set

It’s hard to find..

Rablab Colored Agate Coaster Set, $55

Rablab Colored Agate Coaster Set, $55

a good set of coasters. I can’t believe I’m saying it, but it’s true.  I came across these from A+R Store about a year ago and I still think about them at least once a week.  They are so pretty, colorful and since they are made from natural materials, no two are alike. All have rubber feet to avoid surface scratching and come as a set of four.  Maybe I’ll actually make the purchase one of these days.

Ceramic Crinkle Cups

Described as..

Rob Brandt's Ceramic Crinkle Cup $10 (ea)

Rob Brandt's Ceramic Crinkle Cup $10 (ea)

an objet de pop art, these ceramic cups are also totally functional. They were first created in 1975 by Rob Brandt, a ceramicist in the Netherlands. I have one and use it as a candy dish, but would love to get a whole set to use as my everyday drinkware.. supports the fact that yes, I am sort of obsessed with all things WHITE for the home these days.

Hippopotamus Bookends

Kind of obsessed with..


Hippo Bookends

Hippopotamus Bookend $58.00

WHITE! I’m not sure where my obsession with white stems from but it became really apparent while decorating my apartment last winter.  I was constantly on websites, blogs and through the wonders of the web was introduced to a pretty great store A+R. I bought 2 of these white hippos and use as bookends..highly recommend!

roller skate door stop

Rollerstop Bookend/Doorstop $95.00

I’ve been back and forth about the roller skate door stop they also sell. I really don’t have a use for it, but I do love it..
