Marcel monkey and Beverly bear

October 24, 2010






A former buyer and designer, Craig Anczelowitz always dreamt of making toys. After more than ten years spent in New York working for prestigious companies (Kate’s Paperie, ABC Carpet & Home, Outfitters), Craig decided to settle down in Thailand. He had traveled throughout Asia many times for work and had always enjoyed his time developing home decor there most. Not very long after, he gave birth to Nook-nook, a collection of funny creatures. Handmade with much love, the nook-nooks are produced with respect and care in a family-run workshop in chiang mai, Thailand. The nook nook collection has been created deep within the thickets of the “hideaway forest” to  brighten your day and put a big smile on your face! nook nook features such hand stitched goodies as the cute-as-buttons “critter” dolls, sensationally splendid stationery, petite and precious purses as well as oodles and oodles of adorable accessories”.

Sustainable, sleek, and beautiful: those are the right adjectives for this one-room of wonders. Designed by two San Francisco mothers, it is the perfect place for kids to dream big. The structure, a nod to modernist architecture, is built with eco-friendly maple wood and nontoxic finish. It can be embellished with decals or colored paint. So, for $1,250, you can welcome this “doctor’s office/school/experimental kitchen” which will grow with your baby (until 6 years)…

Areaware forever…

October 17, 2010





The Salvor Fauna collection (Tees and cushions) had a lot of influence on the market; the graphics have been widely copied, there’s even been copies of the copies. That didn’t affect their attraction power. Simply because they were the first, because they are beautifully made, distributed in the best stores around the world. These animal cushions are still the most desirable ones with their very soft, peach-like organic cotton and perfect consistency, just hard enough to stand nicely. Our zebra and fawn are 6 years old already; they have been kissed, hugged, dragged everywhere in the house, but they are still in excellent condition, soon ready to passed to little friends and cousins.
