Entries in summer (20)


summer favorites: andrea

boroscilicate espresso cup
I need a jolt in the morning and it’s
just the right size for a ‘Dark Matter’ espresso. I probably only need one but they’re perfect for entertaining and they stack nicely so they’re easy to store in my small cabinets. The thinness of the glass is so amazing as well as its simple silhouette—form and function!
banquina chair
this is high on my wishlist—it’s a visual stunner for my open floor plan with the drama of the wood frame, and the neutral linen material quietly goes with everything.
caution indoor-outdoor rug
Made from recycled materials, the bright colors won’t fade and I’m a huge fan of all things striped. So I’m excited to pair this with my bask lounger—it’ll be a fun combination on the balcony so I can’t wait for warmer weather.

Thanks to andrea, product manager, for this submission.


summer favorites: todd

element console table
…Stonehenge!!? I’d love to see this in an entryway with an ethnic tapestry behind it.
chelsea dining table
classic modern look, super durable—I’ve seen Parsons’ tables before but for way more $$$.
terracotta oil lamps
fire always gives an intimate, relaxed feel to any space—and it’s a great way to add romantic light to an outdoor collection.

Thanks to todd, senior visual merchant west, for this submission.


summer favorites: ashley

caution indoor-outdoor rug
I always gravitate to bold colors and this rug is an unexpected combination of color and pattern. I would use it indoors and out, just like it’s described.
govino stemless wine glasses set/4
they have a great shape and I can’t wait to use them for all kinds of cocktails—and since it’s acrylic, it’s great for outdoor entertaining and rowdy indoor parties!
sawyer chair and ottoman
I covet this chair simply because it’s perfectly appointed for relaxing in the sun—with a wide armrest for ice cold lemonade, sunglasses, summer reads—and I love the modern take on a classic design.

Thanks to ashley, senior manager/west, for this submission.


how we spent summer, 2011

Marta…went for an inspirational walk on the High Line in NY in June…cooked with 8 friends every night for one week in July on Lake Michigan…spent a week with my husband in Zihuatanejo in August…tequila and sun.

Sandy…spent a week in a small resort on a private beach in Sturgeon Bay, Door County, WI. We also spent a lot of time at our local Lake Michigan beach—perfect on sweltering summer days.

Ryan…went to work, then went home to put my baby girl to bed…every…day.

Sandra…wore as much white as I possibly could…spent hours on my new front deck with friends, family, neighbors…and did some family history research in Warsaw in preparation for my 87-year-old parent’s first trip to Poland.

Todd…spent it in the backyard with our dogs Rocky and Juliet. We have a wood picnic table that we painted bright red there is lots of candlelight everywhere. We grill fish and maybe corn. When the meal is done, we pull some chairs over to the fire pit and drink beer and tequila until the firewood is gone.

Adam…visited Connecticut and Boston…rented a Fiat 500 for drives there and toured The Phillip Johnson glass house. Visited Traverse City, MI and had a water balloon fight with nieces and nephews…came home to Chicago for Cubs games and Ravinia Music Festival.

Jake…of course had to come back to Chicago to visit friends and go to Market Days—my favorite street festival off all time. I also went to Houston to visit friends and explore the city—the highlight was the Menil Collection which has everything from frescos from the 1300’s to a modern light exhibit by Dan Flavin. It’s a really cool mix of modern and ancient.

Ali…moved into a bigger place and got a baby’s room ready!

Sara…went to my parent’s cabin in the UP of Michigan…chilled out at home in Chicago…went to the Foster St. beach on Lake Michigan…ran every errand on my bike…cooked all kinds of delicious Mexican food at Joyce and Jimmy’s—that is, Jimmy cooked and Joyce and I enjoyed cocktails.

Anna…went car shopping…visited WI and KS…went home for the county fair and to visit friends.

Megan…ate outside at foodtruckfests…went boating on Lake Michigan with friends…brewed beer for my wedding!

Curtis…went to NYC and saw the Alexander McQueen show…and some great works at the MCA in Chicago…discovered a new like—not quite love yet—of running along the lakefront…started taking tennis lessons which I do love.

April…soaked up the salty air and sand dunes in South Carolina with family.
