Our days are punctuated by scouting new talent, attending market appointments, and scrolling Instagram in an effort to unearth the products, people, and news you actually need to know. Here’s what we Slacked one another about this week.
Party On: Feste
Now that all my friends are vaxxed, dinner parties are back. The only problem? I don’t own enough matching plates for the amount of people I want to have over. Thank goodness for Feste, a new party-in-a-box company from a former LVMH executive that offers up five different party vibes that go beyond just setting the table. Think: neon signs, tassel garland, confetti poppers, and even a disco ball. Is it New Year’s Eve yet? —Julie Vadnal, deputy editor
Pattern Party: La DoubleJ x 1stDibs
There’s nothing more comforting than a classic diner mug, but the tableware in La DoubleJ’s collaboration with 1stDibs is giving my old-school glasses a run for their money. The label is bringing its signature Milanese flair to a new line of porcelain decked in a snazzy archival geometric print from the 1960s, courtesy of textile brand Seterie Cugnasca. The launch also marks LDJ’s first foray into furniture, incorporating the cubed print on seating and ottomans that are perfect for propping your feet up in style. —Kate McGregor, associate design editor
Off-Season Escape: Greydon House
There’s something magical about a beach town in the off-season. You can take in all the breathtaking scenery without the hectic crowds and actually hear the sounds of waves crashing—which is exactly how I spent a recent weekend in Nantucket at the charming Greydon House. Designed by beloved duo Roman and Williams, the 20-room hotel opened in 2016, and, of course, every detail was executed to perfection. Its classic high-gloss paint and luxe velvet upholstery mixed with nautical touches like rope table lamps and Portuguese tiles with painted sailboats make the space truly one of a kind. If that’s not reason enough to visit, its new pop-up with local wellness center Lavender Farm, where rejuvenating massages are offered on-site, will surely seal the deal. —Julia Stevens, associate style editor
Paper Play: Cold Picnic’s Wallpaper Launch
There comes a moment in the dead of winter where we all have the same thought: I wish I were somewhere tropical. But rather than buy a plane ticket to the Maldives, consider visiting an aviary or, better yet, turn your home into one. Beloved rug brand Cold Picnic has launched its first collection of wallpaper, and two of the prints are inspired by the geodesic dome at the Queens Zoo in New York, which the founders describe as “nostalgic and futuristic.” We’d describe this fresh wall covering (which, yes, comes in a rug version!) as feel-good. —Lydia Geisel, associate home editor
Home Makers: Loeffler Randall’s Craft Fair
The checkerboard trend is alive and well at Loeffler Randall’s fourth annual craft fair, but here it stars on the brand’s own knit beanies and everyone’s mother’s crocheted bucket hats instead of floors and pillows. I’ll have one of each, please. Although it would definitely be smarter to use the celebration of artisan handiwork as an opportunity to check off the hard-to-please people on my gift list. Who wouldn’t want a sweet Dalmatian candleholder (made by none other than Loeffler Randall’s head of design) or a set of French gingham napkins? —Lindsey Mather, editorial director, home
