Started in 2009, this company brings the best of independent Swedish design to the US by featuring a new designer each month. Pictured above, the Coffee in Bed Tray ($26) and the Stockholm Tray ($36). Each is made of the highest quality Scandinavian birch and designed by Mira Holmer Dahlgren.
Thelermont HuptonThis British award winning design company is known for their off the wall designs – literally. Their line of hand cast wall hooks, security camera mirrors and Off The Wall Pots (pictured above) really caught my eye. Available at A+R for $26.
From the 140 year-old company, already well known for their Native American inspired blankets, comes some great dinnerware collections. I especially enjoyed the Lakota Dinnerware, which is based on the basketry and pottery of the Lakota Sioux Plains Indians. Pieces start at $48
This head-turning booth was simple in presentation, but the designs spoke for themselves. London-based designer Eleanor Pritchard's collection of woven blankets include an array of geometric patterns, made of 100% pure new wool with blanket stictch edging.
