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.

Common, but Rare: Zumreed

When it comes to music devices nowadays, they can be personalized and customized in many ways. Music devices are available in different colors, styles, and memory programming. iTunes can recognize anybody’s musical tastes and suggest tunes based on what is purchased and downloaded. Then there’s an endless supply of musical accessories available almost everywhere you go.

Speakers, earbuds, and headphones can be found in any color under the sun. Some can be found with unique artwork or brand logos stamped on them. Products from Zumreed are just more musical device accessories in that sea of endless choices. One of the more unique things about these products is that the company is based out of Japan. Product browsing is available online at Zumreed.net, but you cannot purchase anything directly off the internet if you’re not in Japan. Another difference about Zumreed compared to others is that they carry more products. Zumreed is the first I’ve seen to carry all three- speakers, earbuds, and headphones. In addition, other Zumreed “musicgoods” include iPhone stands and carrying cases, phone plug adapters for earpieces or speakers, and cord wraps.

Though Zumreed accessories are like every other audible attachment out there, they’re a rare brand. As mentioned earlier, online purchasing is unavailable in America. Many Urban Outfitter retailers carry Zumreed products, but some states have other carriers. Highlight the “Where to Buy” box on the website to find a Zumreed carrier near you.

Not a Gallery: Twentieth Century Visual Art

What do you think of when the term “art” is mentioned? Do you think of famous works like the Mona Lisa, the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, or Van Gogh’s Starry Night? Technology has evolved by leaps and bounds since the Renaissance period, and so has artistic style. Digital art has revolutionized aesthetic tastes, and one particular digital artist, Justin Belmont, is sharing his talent with art lovers everywhere.

Justin Belmont runs Notagallery.com, where he sells his work. His digital paintings are surfaced with handcrafted acrylic paint on two inch deep Birchwood frames. They’re created with 8-Color UltraChrome Ink, personally signed and ready to hang upon reception. His subjects are colorful and unique. His wall rounds are equally attention-drawing. While they have a heavy gauge texture, they’re easily repositionable sheets of wallpaper. The most unique of Belmont’s art is the Diamond Dust series, with which he uses eleven carats of crushed diamonds on pop icon subjects such as Marilyn Monroe, Paul Newman, and Audrey Hepburn.

The digital paintings and wall rounds are available in varying sizes and ships in two weeks’ time from the time of the purchase. The wall rounds and smaller digital paintings are least expensive, costing up to $300. The Diamond Dust works are one-of-a-kind and hence the most expensive, available only at $2700 and ship in three weeks’ time. Treat a fellow art collector to this new, iconic style by giving them a gift card to the site. Just as classical pieces like the Mona Lisa and Starry Night reflect the ideals and styles of their time; Belmont captures modern culture and accentuates it in very unique ways. Products from Not a Gallery will liven up any room with color, fun, and personality. There are art pieces that can fit any budget and compliment any style.

Solé Bikes

Solé Bicycle Co. was created by two best friends in college who were fixated on making things more simple, and better yet using the small things that were accessible already. They wondered a simple question that they soon found the answer for, why were these simple and elegant bicycles so expensive and not easy to obtain? They wanted to change this and make a bicycle company that offered simple, unique, and affordable bicycles to the entire world. To this date they have sold and shipped bicycles to all every single state in the United States and to over 20 other countries.

When you think of bicycles, the image of a clunky and expensive bike usually comes to mind, Solé Bikes are unique in the fact that they are designed simply and made to accomplish everyday tasks such as getting you where you need to go with some of the highest quality materials available. It goes without saying that Solé Bikes have much more “sole” than most other bicycles in the market today. It seriously comes down to making a product that we all know and love easier to use and better looking, which is something that Solé Bikes accomplish with pride!

It’s not only healthier to ride a bicycle everywhere you go, to work, shopping, school, etc., but it is also much more particle and inexpensive! Think about it, would you rather spend time getting in a car, starting it up, shifting gears and doing all of that complicated stuff just to go down the road for one thing you may be needing, or would you rather grab your stylish bicycle and ride it, not using any gas at all, and get the same results? I think the answer is quite obvious. Solé Bicycles make affordable and good looking bicycles for the masses, it’s a no brainer, if you want a bike with “sole” then Solé is the way to go!

Their product lines have grown over time, and new and innovative products are definitely in the future of Nooka.

Most of their products are a little more expensive than their competitors, but that is simply because the quality and design is superior at Nooka. It may cost a little more to get a Nooka product, but you seriously get the look that you pay for. While I must admit some of their products will more than likely make you stand out everywhere you go, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, Nooka makes products specifically for those who want to stand out.

Celebrities are more than willing to wear Nooka products and show off the brand, in fact Miley Cyrus has been seen wearing their sunglasses with everyday clothes, making them the focal point. It’s not hard to see how Nooka is taking this generation by storm, and it’s not too hard to see how they will only continue to succede in a world where being different and looking ahead of your time is not only acceptable, but celebrated.
