before we jump into today’s before & afters i wanted to share some submissions that came through earlier this week. first up are this adorable stacking stool from kirsty at purewhyte. the “tuffet” stool is made from a series of colorful green stacking units that allow you to raise and lower the seat height depending on your needs. i always love adjustable furniture and i love the way the colors fade from darker to lighter green- they remind me of delicious french macarons. click here and here for more info. thanks, kirsty!
next up are these colorful hand-made acapulco chairs from sam bargetz of loadingdock5 architecture, in collaboration with maya from le grenier (click here to see her home!). this made-in-brooklyn version is available in a wide range of colors and will be available through greenpoint works. thanks, sam!
last but not least, i had to share thing ring i’m obsessing over. it was designed by pratt student ah-young oh who was inspired by the portraits of renaissance nobles (namely the braided hairstyles and powdered wigs of women from the time). the ring is made from plated sterling silver, gypsy set cubic zirconia, and silk and is just stunning. for me, it reminded me of my very first visit to pratt back in 2006 when i met kiel mead and saw his knot ring. thought i know the two aren’t connected, for me this is like a great full circle pratt-knot-ring theme and a continuation of the great jewelry designers coming from pratt. thanks, angeline and ah-young!
