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.

Moleskine

There are very few things that we get in life for free, and one of the most valuable is the opportunity to have good taste. I truly believe and live by that sentence spoken in my own words. I believe that design and a taste for it can be acquired but is best if you are born with it. There are very few people who understand how fundamental it is for something to look good, but the people at Moleskine really understand!

Moleskine is a brand of book that can be used for writing, sketching, watercolor, planning, etc. They have many different lines that suit the users needs. These books have a professional and high quality feel and an obvious perfection when it comes to the overall look of these books. I myself have multiple Moleskine books that I use for sketching, writing, and other various things. They not only look good, but are some of the most functional products of it’s kind on the market.

Very few companies pride themselves in achieving such quality, but the ones that do deserve recognition, and Moleskine is one of the most prominent. It even shows in their offices. Simplicity is not overrated and too many companies and products feel that it is. When you go back to the beauty in minimal efforts you truly achieve a good taste in design.
