i know people always say that having pets is nothing like having children (and i’m sure that’s true), but sometimes i feel like i’ve been at least partially prepped for kid-dom having the cats we do. between the two of them we can’t leave anything on a surface (they’ll knock it over), can’t have nice fabrics (they’ll tear them up), can’t leave small things on the ground (they’ll eat them), and can’t have anything that’s vaguely string like around the house for fear that they’ll try to eat it or pull it down. so whenever i see something beautiful and fragile like these new pieces from secondome i sigh and imagine how nice it would be to be able to have something like this sitting on a table. don’t get me wrong, i’d choose our cats over a design object any and every time- but sometimes it’s nice to imagine having pretty glass things on a surface without a cat immediately smashing them over. these new pieces designed by sam baron, fabrica, 5.5 designers, kiki van eijk, and joost van bleiswijk for secondome edizioni will be on display at maison et objet soon, so if you’re in the area- stop by and see them! until then you can visit secondme edizioni’s website right here.
