Bergman Chair, $400
define the furniture company Industry West and they are: “Design, Quality, Value, and Community”. They give back to the community, use solid materials and make pieces that are sturdy and clean. I’m loving the industrial feel (and the price point’s not so bad either).

It’s kind of..
a big deal to have a stacking throne. I mean, what kid wouldn’t want one of these to climb, play and cozy into? A special production piece from Laurens Van Wierigen, it’s made from foam, lacquered wood and steel. Envious of the lucky kid this went to!

Guest Hunter, Elodie Rambaud
from Paris is Elodie Rambaud – a very chic, well traveled, food loving lady who just so happens to be this week’s Guest Hunter! Elodie was born in the City of Light and spent her entire childhood in France. As a kid, the stylist travelled with her family to amazing places like Italy, Spain, Tunisia, and Egypt. Her passion for seeing the world continues as she loves learning about new places, being on her own and meeting new people. At the age of 22, Elodie moved to London where she worked for a year. An opportunity to freelance for Fauchon brought her back to Paris, but she still had the travel bug and took off to Australia in the mid 2000’s where she worked for a number of food and interior design magazines. The jetsetter is now back in Paris where she styles for magazines and cookbooks.
So, it’s pretty clear, Elodie likes to travel; she also loves to exercise, spend time with friends and food.. a girl after our own hearts! She’s got great taste (as you can tell from her WEBSITE and BLOG) so keep READING to get the inside scoop into what’s new, cool and not just “of the moment” from a true Parisienne!

on the kid scene, SMALLable may have been on your radar for some time. BUT if this gem of a shop isn’t, then it should be. They offer over 200 independent brands from all over the world, many of them you won’t see anywhere else. Fashion, furniture, decorations, games and books for babies and kids at all different price points. A great place to find interesting and thoughtfully designed gifts that parents will appreciate (and believe me be very thankful for) as much as the kids. As if the beautiful product selection isn’t enough, SMALLable has an amazing online magazine that’s an easy reference of all things cool.
Reclaim a piece of history..
through Capsule Furniture. The company was founded by Dan Faires, who re-purposes salvaged materials into custom furniture for modern living. The newest line is called “meatpacking” and was handcrafted from wood beams recovered from old buildings in NYC. The coolest part is that hidden within each piece is a scroll stating the exact address and history of the neighborhood from where where the wood was rescued. Checkout the full line of Capsule’s impressive goods.

Strawser & Smith Storage Lockers
furniture company, Strawser & Smith operates under the principle that “older is better”. All furniture is hand-crafted using vintage or industrial 19th and 20th centuries materials that have a contemporary feel. The use of traditional materials and techniques to make well-crafted, stable pieces that are relevant today and kind of timeless.. who would’ve thought?
