“Current Obsessions” is a post of awesome miscellaneous finds that I put together from time to time when my collection of randomness doesn’t seem to lend itself to a particular theme (and/or when my life is too busy to attempt anything more coherent than a peek into my secret “pending awesomeness” pinterest board). For your viewing pleasure, here are five things currently on my lust list:
1) I’ve blogged about my love of Gray Malin‘s photography previously, and given my fondness for graphic wallpaper, I was pretty stocked to learn that Malin has teamed up with custom wallpaper company Black Crow Studios. The wallpaper is far from inexpensive (in fact, you can purchase one of Malin’s prints for about half the price), but if you’ve got a luxe surf shack in need of a statement wall, Malin’s beachscapes will be tough to beat.
2) Cast in solid brass, these Crest Bottle Openers by contemporary design studio Fort Standard are as beautiful as they are functional. A perfect host gift, these bottle openers should be proudly displayed on a wall or bar cart and would tuck nicely into a picnic basket for those summer days at the park. Now if only they made six packs of Veuve…3) Not to worry folks, this post isn’t all class. In fact, this BUY ME BRUNCH tank by Fab is anything but. This angry gorilla is a perfect representation of me after a night out on the town and it might just be awesome enough to put a smile on the hungover faces of those joining you for pancakes.
5) Unless you’ve been living totally off the grid for the past ten years, you’ve heard of TOMS and the company’s “One For One” Movement. Put simply, you buy a pair of TOMS shoes and TOMS donates another pair to a child in need. The classic TOMS weren’t much more than slippers, but the company has since expanded to carry several styles for men, women and children, some of which are made entirely from vegan and earthy friendly materials. TOMS most recent collection of brogues are casual enough to sport with jeans, but the classic wingtip detailing makes them office friendly as well.
