Of course I love all of our Apartment Therapy videos, but the ones from our 'Favorite Things' series are some of my, er, favorites. These videos take a look at the things we treasure and the stories behind them. Though they're ostensibly about stuff, the videos are so funny and personal — they're an exploration of the things we keep in our homes, our relationships to them, and why we love them.
Sometimes our favorite things aren't really things at all. For our first video, here's an homage to the (late, great) Ernie the Cat, who just by being round and orange brought joy to so many.
From Nick's wife Cate comes something a little different. Sometimes we love things because of how useful they are, and how much easier they make our lives. Here, Cate explains her affection for her super-powered vacuum cleaner.
Vincenzo Amato, an artist and actor living in New York, loves his record player for the charming, tactile quality it brings to playing music.
And finally, a touching story about a grandmother's love.
Thanks for watching! We all here at Apartment Therapy wish you a happy Memorial Day weekend filled with the things, and most importantly the people, you love.
