Hay Kitchen Market Frederik Bille Brahe

The New Kitchen Essentials, from Hay and Danish It-Chef Frederik Bille Brahe

The collaboration between Hay and Danish chef Frederik Bille Brahe began, as so many collaborations do, at the furniture fair in Milan a year and a half ago. Charged with outfitting the tables for a Hay pop-up café, Bille Brahe set out with Hay co-founder Mette Hay to scour the Milanese flea markets for flatware, dishes, and serving pieces. The two liked working together — and the hodgepodge effect their vintage-sourced table settings had — so much that Mette called upon Frederik to help curate the pieces in a new line launched this week called Hay Kitchen Market.

Kelly Behun x Concrete Cat is a Match Made In Heaven

A few weeks ago, we conveyed our excitement over the fact that Concrete Cat was finally making furniture. But it turns out that that was just the first piece of many, and that the Canadian studio had in fact been working under wraps on a collaboration with one of our other favorite designers: Kelly Behun.

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.

Buy These Curated Arrangements from Daniela Jacobs, Queen of the Still Life

Daniela Jacobs sees the world through the lens of the still life — something that's instantly obvious with a scroll through her Instagram page, where her beautifully shaped and textured ceramics are placed in and among the best props and treasures. So when her latest collection of shoppable still lifes, called ARC Accents, came about, it had evolved over years of accumulation and a love for secondhand items. “I didn't want to start a secondhand shop, but rather a curated collection of pieces, both found and of my own design.”

Meet the Couple That’s Reinventing Bathroom Style

Call it what you will — wash room, water closet, commode, loo — the bathroom is nothing if not the unsung hero of many a home and apartment. It is a place of quiet refuge for space-deprived urbanites and, if Pinterest is any indication, an actual spa if you live outside New York City. No one knows this better than Lisa and Michael Fine, the founders of Quiet Town (she, a stylist, he, a photographer). They've taken their complementary skill sets and combined them to make a covetable line of bath essentials including shower curtains, rugs, and wall hooks that pleasingly upend convention while marrying (often geometric) form to function.

The Candy-Colored Ceramics Collection We’re Coveting

The new spring collection from Felt + Fat — the Philadelphia-based ceramics studio founded by RISD architecture grad Wynn Bauer and former Tyler School of Art glass major Nate Mell — looks like its cups, plates and bowls were colored with the powder of chalky-sweet candy hearts. Featuring matte pale pinks and swirls of sage, plus a bright and poppy blue and yellow, the tableware is as suitable for a shelf display as it is for a bustling dinner party — after all, the porcelain clay pieces can be found in restaurants all around the Philly scene.

Five New Ceramics Collections We’re Feeling Right Now

Sometimes we get the feeling that we have altogether enough stuff. But then the period between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve happens, and we realize that we somehow don't have all the requisite items for serving food, displaying flowers, or generally decking out our dinner table in a manner befitting a design editor. So this round-up couldn't have come at a better time: Meet five new ceramicists creating work that's sculptural but functional, minimal but avant-garde, and generally chic as hell.

The Best Gifts for Design Lovers Under $50

For as long as we've been publishing holiday gift guides — and this is our fourth annual one! — we've been dividing them up by editor, which eventually became predictable even to us. Want something monochrome? Go to Monica's gift guide. In the mood for something colorful? Jill's got you covered. Need something ever-so-slightly less girly? Our junior editors are invariably men. This year, we decided to do our readers a service, and lay things out according to the cold hard cash you'll have to put down.
