birds for the ceiling + desk

by Grace Bonney

i couldn’t resist sharing a little monday morning eye candy of the avian variety. this colorful new mobile from madeleine stamer at little circus design is painfully sweet. whether you have a little one who needs above-crib decoration or have the perfect spot for this in your adult home, you can pick up one of madeleine’s new mobiles in cool blue or warm red shades right here. thanks, madeleine!

the moma design store’s new 2010 gift catalog includes this adorable little paperclip holder named “chip”. the chrome plated sculpture uses internal magnets to hold clips, giving it the appearance of wings or feathers. perch it on top of your papers and you’ve got a handy paperweight, too. it’s a tad over my budget for an office accessory, but that doesn’t stop me from wishing it perched on my desk. click here for more info and to buy online.
