Springtime is in the air, and you’ve finally pulled your bike out of the dusty basement. Keep it handy (and spiderweb-free) with Cantilever and Press’ Wall-Mounted Bike Rack ($85-95). Minimalist, functional and still attractive to look at, it’s a great solution for the apartment dwellers among us who don’t want a bike cluttering up the hallway. I should get one for my downstairs neighbors. Hint, hint.
You know how some people just have a knack for putting things together? Not too matchy-matchy or obvious, but just the right touch? That’s Grey Maggy. In addition to a beautifully curated collection of pillows, she strips and repaints old chairs, then reupholsters them in the most fetching fabrics. (Chairs from $160).
Utilizing a wide variety of upcycled and repurposed materials, from coffee filters and drinking straws to scraps of old road maps and phone books, Zipper 8 Lighting’s line of handmade pendant lamps and wall sconces is unique, and sure to be a conversation piece. (From $30)
I had a flashback to European Princesses when I came across Arturo Rios’ glamorous millinery shop, with oversized Derby stunners and feathered fascinators aplenty (from $129). And then I realized I have an English wedding (in Ohio) coming up at the end of May. I LOVE hats, but there are never any good opportunities to wear them…do I dare?
