A Whimsical Twist on Practical Houseware

Wolfum creator Annabel Inganni spent nine years in apparel design before her designs took an interesting turn in 2010. Inganni is now creating household items like linen napkins, bookends, and coasters, but her flair for the unique provides a whimsical and stylish twist to these seemingly traditional pieces.

Los Angeles based Wolfum makes simple, everyday products from organic cotton, recycled poly twill, and FSC certified walnut. Quality materials mean lasting items, and lasting items mean less replacement and waste. If that wasn’t enough, bold patterns and colors like sage, olive, and navy adorn each hand-made product.

Wolfum’s collection of unique linens have a timeless appearance, with patterns that could have easily been taken from a trunk of beloved vintage items or used to embellish a modern tabletop. Wolfum’s colorful animal bookends and wall hangers also add a fanciful feel the the collection. Tigers, rabbits, coyotes, and a slew of other creatures in a variety of delightful patterns and colors would be perfect for a child or adult.

Whether it’s a mix-and-match collection or a coordinated set, Wolfum products are Inganni’s answer to a boring room. U.S. made and built to last, Wolfum’s whimsical products can be purchased at California shops like ST&NDARD GOODS and La La Ling, as well as Wolfum’s website.

Thirst-Quenching Fun: Creature Cups

Imagine you’re drinking a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. You glance down into the cup and see an otter or an octopus! Either you’re sipping from a Sea World aquarium, or you’re enjoying your drink from a creature cup. These animalistic creations are designed by Yumi, an artist based out of Brooklyn, New York. They’re sold online at Creaturecups.com. You get a selection of either the octopus or the otter cup, or you could get both. If you are a store owner (or if you know someone who is interested), you can order these to sell in your place of retail. Read the “info” page for contact info.

Creature Cups are hand-made, dishwasher-safe and cost about fifteen dollars before shipping and handling. If you’re looking to buy one in the near future, they are unfortunately sold out at the moment. Yumi claims that they’ll be restocked next year, and there will even be more to choose from! If you’re still interested in what’s offered now, you can pre-order them.

Creature Cups are a delightful gift for the hot-beverage consumer you know! They’ll make coffee breaks more interesting and surprise those unfamiliar with the “hidden creatures in your cup”!

Nanoblock

Sometimes the older crowd misses the days when they were able to play with building blocks and get away with it. One company recognized that and decided to do something about it! We all used to love building crazy creations with blocks and wasting countless hours making intricate structures out of blocks to then just take it apart. Nanoblock is all about the building of smaller block creations only not to be taken apart afterwards but instead collected and displayed! Nanoblocks are the building blocks designed for those more skilled than the average child and more patient. These little blocks are really quite small and measure smaller than a coin. Patients and time is no doubt a factor required when building with Nanoblocks, but one that pays off in the end with an individual piece of collectable art!

It makes sense really, why spend time building something only to take it apart? You don’t have to with these tiny building blocks, in fact they come packaged to where you have enough blocks to build the specific design that you buy. It’s not hard to build with them, but it does take some time compared to throwing a few big toy blocks together. So if you fall into the category of those “too old” to play with blocks, then Nanoblock are most certainly for you! With plenty of designs to choose from and a continuously growing catalogue you are sure to be entertained with these little blocks for a big amount of time!
