Susan Connor NY

I am so in love with these beautiful linen home goods by Susan Connor, a New York-based self-taught pattern designer and artist. Susan is a lovely person who just launched her line this year and makes everything by hand from her Bushwick studio. For now, her designs are made in limited editions and it’s so hard to choose! I’m really enamored with every single piece–the hand-stamped pattern variations are stunning. I’d love to have one of her throw blankets floating around my house and a pile of dreamy pillows to sink into. I’m already excited to see what comes next from her to feed my voracious linen addiction. More HERE.

Eric Trine

I’ve been a fan of Eric Trine’s for a while. He lived in Portland for a couple years while he was in grad school, but he moved his family back home to Cali this past winter. I’ve been ogling his beautiful Rod + Weave leather strap chairs (the copper!!) and now I’ve got his powder-coated Octahedron Side Tables and Octahedron Ring Planters on my mind.

I love that Eric works in a really impulsive, hands-on way by just playing with his materials. I find it refreshing because I feel like a lot of people (including myself) can become overly earnest and stagnant when they overthink design. Sometimes it’s best to just torch the tutorials, guidelines, expectations and sentimentality and just make some stuff. More HERE.

Table of Contents

The selection at Table of Contents is always fantastic and I feel like it’s especially so right now. I love all the Acne pieces–that Jules Light Mix Trench in ecru is stunning. As always, the beautiful bags from Portland designer, Sara Barner, kill me–that black weekender below is just gorgeous. They recently got in the new canvas bags with leather trim and tassels from Building Block and they’ve built up such good Comme des Garçons picks (sneakers!). Also, their housewares and objects are AMAZING–I love the TOC Studio bookstands and bookends. If you’re in Portland, stop by Table of Contents at 33 NW 4th Avenue. More HERE.

Ria Leigh

I love these ceramics by Los Angeles-based artist, Ria Leigh. I think my favorite works are her Ouroboros bracelets in these pastel colors below and her little vase structures. If you’re in Portland, you can find some of her work at Sword + Fern at 811 E. Burnside. More HERE.
