Goblets Are Your New Kitchen Must-Have

In February of 2018, we were Google-searching glassware for another story when we stumbled upon a series of objects from the '50s that awoke in us an obsession for thick-stemmed wine glasses that we never knew we had: Kaj Franck's series of colorful goblets. Two years later, our obsession has only grown, and we think they're the thing to have on your table now.

If You’re Looking for a New Set of Flatware, Your Search Stops Here

When I first set out to do this story, it was purely for selfish reasons: I was looking to replace a now out-of-stock Ikea flatware set (with bizarrely tiny forks) that I'd purchased as a cheap placeholder years ago. Why not share the results of my search? For fun, I polled some design friends on Instagram and that's when the floodgates opened. You guys. I had no idea people had so many opinions about flatware.

One of the Best Galleries in Mexico City is Inside a Modernist Apartment

A hybrid cultural venue and design gallery intimately nestled in a modernist apartment building in the Roma Norte neighborhood of Mexico City, Studio IMA — which stands for “in my apartment” and nods to the Japanese word for “the present” — follows the shoppable interior model of The Apartment by the Line or Casa Perfect. But while those locations merely gesture towards an inhabited domestic space, Studio IMA founder Bettina Kiehnle Garza lives right alongside the art and objects on display day and night.

Why Not Let a Room Divider Be the Biggest Statement in Your Home?

Over the years, room dividers have been used as privacy screens and dressing rooms, as freestanding walls to divide loftlike apartments, as backdrops for a tea ceremonies, and so much more. But what if we just decided that room dividers didn't need to be anything but themselves? That seems to be the thinking behind the latest crop — that the divider is more akin to an artwork than a functional piece of furniture, and, as such, can be used as a giant canvas on which to explore experimental ideas about materiality, form, optical illusions, and more.

The Interiors Trend With More Staying Power Than Millennial Pink — And How to Incorporate It Into Your Own Home

Metaflora recently teamed up with West Elm to create a series of faux botanical bouquets — orchids mixed with fan palms, proteas mixed with banana leafs or feathers, and the ubiquitous anthurium opening its waxy shell against a huge, graphic palm frond. The bouquets look shockingly real — the ends of the palm leaves are even browned and frayed a bit to mimic decay — and are also a shockingly affordable way to bring a sense of drama into anyone's home.
