Sight Unseen Moda Operandi

Starting Today, You Can Shop Contemporary Objects From Our Book on Moda Operandi

Our new book, How to Live With Objects — which hits bookstores November 15 and is available for pre-order now — is meant as a primer on how to use vintage and contemporary objects to add personality to your home, maximizing its visual and emotional impact, regardless of your space limitations or budget. (In our world, a $10 candlestick from a garage sale is just as worthy of a prime spot on your shelves as a $1,000 artisan vase.) But while almost all of the ideas in the book are incredibly accessible, some of the objects we included aren’t always as much so, primarily because so many of them are show-stopping vintage rarities or small-batch pieces by our favorite independent designers.

Today, however, we are excited to announce that we are launching some of the more accessible objects from our book in a Sight Unseen Moda Operandi trunkshow. The sale — which runs now through the end of the year — is just one more way of bringing our book to life, and makes the work of 11 of the contemporary designers featured in our book readily available for you to fall in love with. From a $47 bookend set by Bi-Rite and a $38 Utility Objects ceramic cup, all the way up to a $2,800 cast-bronze statement candelabra by Fort Standard. Preview a few top picks below, then shop the full trunkshow here!
