I just spent the last hour perusing Jennifer Sarkilahti‘s collection of delicate and organic jewelry. She begins each design with a pencil sketch which is then translated into wax, using ancient and modern carving techniques, before finally being cast in various metals. Be sure to check out a tour of Jennifer’s home at Design Sponge and more inspiring images from the Odette workshop at The Makers.
Do you remember that unforgettable scene in Auntie Mame with the fabulously far-fetched, post modern hydraulic benches designed by the fictional Danish designer Yul Ulu? Well, interior designer Kendall Wilkinson‘s hovering cantilevered benches, created for LUXE Magazine’s Maison de Luxe Show House, would have made Mame proud. The benches and the infinity mirror with bright yellow flowers are the show stopping features of this custom designed space. Honestly, wow.
I’m absolutely loving Penfield‘s recent comeback and their newest collection of classic heritage-style outerwear. Originally produced over 30 years ago for the cold New England climate, Penfield is churning out leather and wool trimmed down jackets and vests perfect for today. If only I could settle on a style . . . oh, and some legit winter weather would be nice too.
