float jewelry + lamps


Growing up in a beach town meant that water-related sports and their accoutrements would always be a part of my life. But after a tiny fish (or crab, though I was convinced it was a killer shark) bit me while I was boogie boarding, I pretty much bailed on the actual¬†water. Too dark to see the bottom? Pinchy things that nip at your toes? No thanks, I’ll take the pool or a nice, safe stroll on the boardwalk. While my love of being in the water has waned over the years, my love of water-inspired design has not. I adore sailboat hardware (it’s factoring into our new office in some way), and I’ve always loved nautical flags and the colorful paint codes on buoys. So when I saw these new necklaces (below) and pendant lamps (above) inspired by fishing floats, I was hooked (no pun intended). Both were designed by Fleet, which will debut the designs at this weekend’s New York International Gift Fair (booth NC2). I think the lights are a particularly beautiful spin on fishing floats, and they’d look gorgeous clustered together in the entryway of a home. These pieces will officially launch at the show, but in the meantime, you can check them out in more detail right here. xo, grace

Shouldn’t the headline read “Fleet Jewelry & Lamps”? I thought it was a typo when I first read it. I mean I know they are floats, but the company is Fleet…
