richard tuttle

i'm traveling in maine with my parents this week, and in a tourism rest stop i picked up a flyer for an exhibition at the bowdoin college museum of art, richard tuttle: a print retrospective. i'll admit i wasn't previously familiar with tuttle's work, but i could tell it was something that'd be up my alley and my parents were kind of enough to drive two hours out of the way to go view the exhibit. it didn't disappoint — the works in the exhibition (over 100 of them) were more impressive than anything you can find of his online, i'm afraid, so if you find yourself in maine i recommend going to see it! it runs until october 19th. —stacy

in the shop: global textiles

you've probably noticed by now that textiles from all over the world are having a moment — rich textures, bright colors, and interesting patterns feel fresh in pieces from bolivia (frazada rugs and pillows), turkey (pillows repurposed from kilim rugs), and mexico (embroidered 'otomi' pillows). a whole bunch of new things just arrived in the shop... our favorites are shown above, and you can shop the whole collection here.

Dinanda Nooney


all taken in brooklyn in the late 1970's, these photos taken by a photographer named dinanda nooney are fascinating. the act of going into people's homes and taking photos seems like such a modern phenomenon, at least to me, and these photos are an unexpected reminder that it's been happening long before the selby and the popularity of design blogs. the ones above are some of my favorites, but there's over 500 of them!

introducing beth hoeckel




i couldn't be more excited about these two works by beth hoeckel. both originals ($325 each) and a pretty reasonable size at 16" x 20", either one of these would make a seriously great addition to art walls everywhere. shop beth's work at LEIF here, and then head on over to her website to take a look at all her work.
