We are preparing to go to the NY gift show and check out all the new goodies but we've been secretly stocking up this month already, we are pretty impatient sometimes, which is good for you!
These are gift boxes by Publique Living from San Francisco. They are laminated MDF with an invisible opening and have different woodgrains - walnut, rosewood and wenge. They are quite sturdy and it would be hard for me to give these away as gift packaging when I can think of so many uses for them in my home!
And this is an over-the-top fancy wine carrier by Graf & Lantz of Los Angeles. It's made from the nicest German wool felt and vegetable-tanned leather and is perhaps the most stylish way to appear at a picnic this spring. The buckles adjust to fit the bottle (slender wine or chubby champagne) and the wool will insulate your drink nicely.
We also have a handheld wine carrier from Graf & Lantz. And our lovely lighters from Pearl Tsubota are in too. We'll work on getting everything online this week, but it's a busy week - the San Francisco gallery space is being prepped for the show by Something's Hiding in Here which opens Friday - brave the weather and come on down!
