Baggu by Caitlin Mociun

Sadly, probably the last thing I need in my life is a new bag (or bags for that matter), but I really dig these new bags by Brooklyn-based designer Caitlin Mociun for Baggu.   From $10-$14.  Shop here.

And in other bag news, I think this one deserves a post at Honestly WTF: a $290 lunch bag by Rachel Comey (available at Opening Ceremony).  Cute but really?

new favorite blog: plenty of colour

Last night, when I was up on the computer instead of sleeping, I discovered Plenty of Colour, a design blog where pretty much every post makes me happy just looking at it (described by another as a “rainbow orgasm” also accurate).  The blog is the brainchild of Chloé Douglas a designer based in Vancouver.  Check out her pinterest site too for more beautiful inspiration.

the maker’s project

All photos from Jennifer Causey and The Makers Project

Check out Jennifer Causey’s photo collection called The Makers ProjectHer photographs are beautiful and showcase different designers and artisans in their studios (almost all of the “makers” are Brooklyn-based).   Scroll through the entire set of pictures and you’ll also find a short interview.

From  Jennifer:

I am lucky to live in Brooklyn, New York. It’s a place full of energy and creative spirit; located close enough to the lights and frenetic energy of Manhattan to have a big city feel, yet far away enough to give a sense of space and small town community. In this hectic, industrialized modern world, I am constantly seeking handmade and artisan-produced products. I love discovering people who embrace a more tactile way of living, so I decided to start photographing them. When my project began, I knew I was photographing people who make things, but I soon realized I was also photographing people who make things happen. As the project evolves, so does the adventure and pleasure of documenting the people behind the products: to learn what inspires them, what keeps them going, and their thoughts on the city where they live and work. I hope you enjoy it!

Here’s a complete list of those featured:

love this chair

I love this new chair from CB2.  Makes me wish I had the space and a trendy apartment to put it in…and of course a few hundred dollars.
