Win This Colorful Moroccan Rug — And Shop a Dozen of Our Other Favorite Fringe Objects

Is there any trend right now more ubiquitous than fringe? (Wait a minute — don't say Millennial Pink. Or Memphis.) Still, in the last few years or so, it would seem we've reached peak fringe, with a dusting of long yarns adorning everything from the zig-zag bangs of Ben & Aja Blanc's Half Moon Mirror to the eyelashed African cooperative baskets you'll find in most home goods stores. But to our minds, the thing that jump-started the recent craving for all things hairy and fluffy — in interiors, at least — was the renewed interest a few years back in shaggy, colorful Moroccan rugs, like the Boucherouite one we're giving away with Beklina.

A Jewelry Line for Minimalists Who Also Love Color

Amélie Riech certainly has an impressive fashion resume — having worked as a stylist and editor in Paris, then designed jewelry for the likes of Christofle and Paco Rabanne — but when it comes to her personal jewelry brand Uncommon Matters, if we had to guess, it's her erstwhile training in architecture we're likely most drawn to.

A New Nashville Concept Shop With Rotating Curatorial Themes

If you walked into the new Wilder Etudes store in Nashville, you might not notice anything out of the ordinary; it has its own vibe, of course, but otherwise appears no different than the kind of small, directional boutique you might find in Brooklyn or L.A. But everything stocked at Wilder Etudes adheres to a theme that will change every three months, and the connections aren't always obvious.

Think Big! Our First LA Pop-up, at Space 15 Twenty

If you've been following our Instagram, you know that we've been spending an awful lot of time in Los Angeles lately. Last Thursday, we finally revealed why (aside from an obvious need to escape New York's subzero temps and un-meltable snowdrifts). Our latest pop-up — and our first-ever venture in LA — opened last Thursday at Space 15 Twenty, the Los Angeles Urban Outfitters concept shop and sister store to Brooklyn's Space Ninety 8, where we hosted a similar event last fall. Called Think Big!, the pop-up is inspired by a 1980s-era Soho store of the same name, which featured scaled-up versions of everyday objects.

Visiting Brian Rideout’s New Show Is Like Walking Into One of His Paintings

Canadian artist Brian Rideout's paintings are inspired by amazing art-filled vintage interiors he finds in old magazines and DIY books, and at his new show, they're installed in a very unique, very meta way: with period-appropriate paintings by Al Held, Fernand Leduc, and Guido Molinari sprinkled in between them, and a "living room" full of vintage furniture placed in the middle of the room, so that the gallery effectively becomes a 3-D representation of the spaces depicted in his canvases.

We’ve Added a Dozen Items to Our Newly Revamped Shop!

Maybe it's the seven-year itch, but after a long period of subtle changes, this summer we decided to go all-out in revamping the online shop we've been running since 2010, adding almost a dozen new items by some of our favorite housewares and jewelry designers — with a dozen more on the way between now and fall.

Design Parade, a Festival in the French Countryside, is the Anti–Design Fair

Each spring, as we're challenged to survive the Milan fair, New York Design Week, and Design Miami-Basel in rapid succession, life really does start to feel like one big, annoying, never-ending design parade. And yet funny enough, the festival of that same name, which takes place in early July at the Villa Noailles in Hyères, often feels like the antidote — a charming anti-design-fair in the French countryside where creativity, not commerce, is the only thing on the agenda.

These Ceramics in a Former French Salon Are the Exact Amount of ’80s Nostalgia We Need Right Now

When Italian designer Valentina Cameranesi and curator Matylda Krzykowski first saw the former hairdresser's shop in Toulon, France — where the interior design portion of the annual Design Parade festival is held this year — its windows were plastered with the word "Féminin." Perhaps it was fate, because the word is an apt reference to Cameranesi’s work, which is on view in the former salon in her first solo exhibition until September 24.
