I Love These Today

Leibling Shoes

Leibling means 'darling' in German, but these shoes are so functional and modern, they are anything but darling. These are real shoes: sleek, classic design and you know they will look good with anything and will last many many years. Leibling is the mastermind of  Karni Reshef and Lior Livne, two talented shoe designers out of Tel Aviv, Israel. Want to see more? Click here.

For the Home

Kake-Busho is derived from bushou (lazy), meaning even a lazy person can use it. A marriage of utility and beauty; hand made by Japanese craftsmen, this broom features a wooden umbrella handle that can be hung anywhere. Stiff grass bristles have an elastic force, which makes it easier to sweep without physical force. It’s smaller size makes cleaning narrow spaces much easier. Sojirushi is a line launched in collaboration with designer Oji Masanori and Shirokiya Shoten. Their goal was to design cleaning tools that you can place nearby, instead of hiding them away.

I would love these since I am a huge fan of sushi and quite the chopstick connoisseur. Nothing beats eating nigiri or sashimi with the right pair of chopsticks. 

brass lamps..perfect for that industrial kitchen I dream about someday!

Beautiful design
