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.
Sitting Pretty: Josef Frank Chairs
One of my favorite shops in the world is Stockholm’s Svenskt Tenn, the most dreamlike emporium of all things Scandinavian design and bold botanicals. It’s the perfect balance of timelessness and whimsy, and the work of iconic designer Josef Frank is a centerpiece for all the Scandi magic. Today the store is launching three archival Frank chair designs as part of an exhibition featuring cozy seats of all kinds. The cheerful designs include the Armchair P4, which features a sculptural bentwood frame and the best of his florals—it’s just the spring-like energy I’m craving to get me through the last few weeks of winter. —Jessica Romm Perez, editor-in-chief
Now Showing: Minari
The cold weather has made me realize how much I miss going to the movies! Thankfully A24 is releasing the Korean film Minari today via online Screening Rooms, where you can buy a spot for $20. I love to learn about different cultures through film (especially right now while I’m not traveling), and just the first few seconds of the trailer gave me chills. While the first couple of dates are entirely sold out, I’ve booked a slot for next week to watch with my roommates after work, popcorn and candy included. —Julia Stevens, associate style editor
Fresh Find: Seed & Soil Studio Baskets
I’ve never quite mastered the clutter-free fridge—instead I toss groceries in at random. So when I stumbled across these organization baskets from Seed & Soil Studio, I knew they would be life changing. Now I’m greeted with soothing pastels every time I open the door—and I can easily find all my produce. Plus with all that extra space I’m saving, I can fit in a few extra bottles of rosé. —Esmé Stern, editorial assistant
Get in Line: Hay Runner
I’ve been on the hunt for an entryway runner to complete my apartment, and Hay’s newly released Stripes and Stripes rug is the one. It is graphic and durable; has just the right amount of fringe; comes in six different colors; and adds life to any space. I’ll be waiting by my front door until my Cucumber Green version arrives, which reminds me: The company also makes a doormat option! —Erica Maltz, associate social media editor
Great Shape: Proba Tiles
Whether she’s painting the bottom of a pool or turning kids’ drawings into rugs, Alex Proba’s colorful abstractions just liven up the mood. A kitchen backsplash or shower wall swathed in her latest drop—concrete tiles inspired by a pre-pandemic trip to Morocco—would be a dream. —Lydia Geisel, associate home editor
