Pick up truck by Harry Allen

Pickup Orange.tiff

Pickup Chrome.tiff

Pickup Limited Edition Blue Chrome.tiff

 



Harry Allen loves trucks. The beauty of any pickup truck is its utilitarian aesthetic – four strong wheels and the capacity to haul cargo. Cast in resin

from a toy truck, Pickup is a catch-all bowl. 5 x 12 x 6 inches.

Coming in gold, neon orange, chrome and white. The blue chrome is a limited edition.

Buying for a good cause

A few months after its opening in Notting Hill, children’s charity store Fara Kids still has a great selection of clothing, from “new vintage” at very affordable prices, to rare pieces. Great visual merchandising, cherry on the cake. I found a 50′s flamenco dress costume as well as a turn of the century white lace cotton dress in pretty good condition. And if you are a bit sentimental about the clothes your children outgrew, it is also the place to drop them. You are sure they are going to be treated with lots of TLC.

A collaboration for which the sensitivity of one is inspired by the universe of the other.

That mix of saffron/straw/caramel/pumpkin and blue-greens seems a perfect way to make the transition from fall to winter; a subtle interaction between cold and warm tones. Tuscany meets Iceland…

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)…www.modern-playhouse.com

It’s not too preppy not too trendy, it is clean/simple-chic, in a beautiful quality. This new label called Miller was launched this fall by London retailer Elias & Grace for baby 0-24 months, for boys and girls age 2-10 years. At the moment the line, designed in London, is available exclusively at Elias & Grace In store & Online.

“The Miller ethos is a mix of subtle luxury and effortless cool.  We aim to create everyday wearable pieces in chic, understated colours and pretty prints and the collections are designed to work as co-coordinating outfits or as simple stand alone pieces. Ethical manufacturing and superior quality are both of the highest priority so we have consciously decided to keep production entirely within the EU”. Long life to Miller.

Areaware forever…

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.  www.areaware.com.
