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 need to know. Here’s what we Slacked one another about this week.
Leah O’Connell Textiles
If you follow my #MarketByMail series on Instagram, you know I love scouting new textiles. So I was pleasantly surprised to learn that California-based interior designer Leah O’Connell just launched 10 new fabrics and four whimsical wallpaper patterns. (They’re available through a designer at the Design Social Studio, and will be launching at Hollywood at Home in 2021.) One thing I really love about the collection is the striking and unique color pairings, like the intoxicating turquoise leaves set against a faded emerald green background in a design called Harriet. As we look inward at our own spaces and think about how they make us feel, why not inject a little color and pattern, which can go a long way in creating a cozy and inviting home. —Benjamin Reynaert, style director
CaSa Simon Miller
Simon Miller is a vibe as much as it is a fashion brand (and maker of my favorite stretchy pants), so it’s no surprise that it launched a home section on its website this week. The one-of-a-kind vintage vases, leather dog collars, and tiki-printed terry pillows will get you that much closer to the stylized Los Angeles poolside life that founder Chelsea Hansford so perfectly paints. —Julia Stevens, associate style editor
Eny Lee Parker and Spencer Malinski’s Rug Collection
It’s no secret that I have a thing for rugs, so naturally I was thrilled to discover that designer Eny Lee Parker and printmaker Spencer Malinski have teamed up to create this domino-patterned collection, made from a mixture of bamboo and silk fibers. The rugs are currently available in the pink and green colorways, but rumor has it more are on the way. I wish I could just copy and paste one right into my living room. —Erica Maltz, assistant social media editor
Still Life by Same Paper
I’m always on the hunt for unique books to add to my library, and Still Life from Same Paper is a great addition. It has tons of inspiring still lifes, many taken while the artists were at home during the pandemic. A few of the photographers include Bobby Doherty, Geray Mena, and Caroline Tompkins. —Madeline Montoya, junior designer
Land of Bébé
I’m loving the pretty pale pinks, sweet ruffles, and blooming flowers from Land of Bébé, which will be perfect for the little one I’m expecting in March. The well-curated collection of adorable clothing, decor, and gifts irresistibly marries tradition and whimsy. Its signature block-printed floral sheets will add a soft botanical motif to my otherwise graphic nursery. Oh, and I also can’t resist the cute mini rompers. —Rachel Lasserre, design director
