Makool Loves You – Talska Shirt

Makool Loves You - Talska ShirtWe are loving this perfectly cut plaid Talska shirt ($88 USD) by Makool Loves You. Flattering, a deep neck line, cute button details, plus we love the fact the sleeves have a wide elastic finish. This shirt is made of 100% virgin wool which is from nearby Pendleton, Oregon — thankfully this wool is super soft and isn’t scratchy at all.

Bestlite - Table LampWe are suckers for modern minimal lighting and the Bestlite Table Lamp ($635 USD) is exactly that. Designed by Robert Dudley Best and first manufactured in 1840 this lamp’s claim to fame was solidified when Winston Churchill placed one on his desk in Whitehall. It definitely isn’t cheap to own such an iconic piece of history — at least shipping is free…

A/R Studio – Hopscotch Rug

A/R Studio - Hopscotch Rug Who didn’t play Hopscotch as a kid?

Made of Argentine wool pile in a grey/brown “asphalt” color with cream “chalk” markings, this rug will add a playful touch to any room. You won’t be able to resist the urge for a little hop, skip and a jump every time you walk past it!
