Knoll Generation Chair Unbox

(8 years ago)
I’ve always been terrible at sitting normally in chairs ~ i end up cross legged, legs hanging off the sides sideways, sitting backwards… and sure, i’ve probably flipped a few chairs in my time. Haven’t we all? Well… given that, when presented the opportunity to try the Knoll Generation ~ that claimed to support ANY way of sitting with its tagline “The first chair that lets you sit how you want.” Challenge, accepted! They are even collecting up pics of HOW people are sitting in them at MyGeneration! So in true NOTCOT fashion ~ here’s a big unboxing on the next page ~ and a peek at my favorite details… from the mesh, to the wheels, to the bendable back that screams office-slingshot…TO PAGE 2 of "Knoll Generation Chair Unbox"! -----> (Want more visual goodness?

Design Online: A Response To The Ny Times Story On Online Magazines

(8 years ago)
Earlier today Aaron came into the living room and said “Hey, did you read that article in the Times about Lonny and Rue and online magazines?”. I flicked open a new tab in my browser and immediately went to check it out. I’m not sure what I expected, or why I was surprised, but it...

PaperWhite by Bradley L. Bowers

(8 years ago)
PaperWhite by Bradley L. Bowers is a series of vases created from paper that explore the ideas of beauty, decay, life, death and permanence. The concept of planned permanence frightens me. I believe nothing should be made to last for eternity. Death is natural, and not fearsome. We all must make decisions; PaperWhite asks us [...]

Vintage Candy Packaging

(8 years ago)
The other night I felt like indulging in a quintessentially 90's movie, so I put on Empire Records.  One scene caught my attention as it was a close up of the boxed M&Ms.  I'm sure you all remember that M&Ms once came boxed.  I had to share. More after the jump!

What’s In Your Toolbox: Sibella Court

(8 years ago)
When I first discovered Sibella Court a few years ago, it felt like falling in love for the first time. As a self-professed bower bird, my little magpie kindred spirit swooned over her sneak peek featured last year, and I would list Etcetera as my holy grail of styling books. Have you read her newest...

I might be very biased when it comes to wood, but currently, I’m in a phase where wood can basically do no wrong in my mind. Wood floors? Always amazing. Wood furniture, wood accessories, wood grain on anything? I’m all for it. Needless to say, I think covering an entire wall with dark, beautiful panels of...

Emilio Braga Notebooks

Last week Amy and I headed over to SoHo for the Anthropologie/Sibella Court walking tour through downtown Manhattan. I’m editing a little video of the tour together, but until then I wanted to share these notebooks I picked up at one of Sibella’s tour stops, Kiosk. These colorful notebooks are handmade in Portugal by Emílio...
