Sneak Peek: Lab Partners

by Grace Bonney

Lab Partners are a design/ illustration duo from San Francisco. Their artwork tells bittersweet stories of a world where the sun never sleeps, orange tabby cats dream to the sound of bow tie butterflies, and friends share drinks beneath cupcake umbrellas.

I get inspired every time I see their work, so I asked Ryan and Sarah of Lab Partners if they would be willing to give Design Sponge readers a sneak peek into their home and the artwork that inspires them.

I’d like to thank Ryan and Sarah for sharing their beautiful home.

You can keep up with all their adventures at their blog and view/purchase their prints in their Etsy Shop.
