No longer relegated to craft bins and children's projects, design studios have given felt a life of its own and transformed this common material into a wide variety of functional, beautiful home accessories and personal possessions. Etceteria Media is one such studio: founded in January 2005 by Boston-based designers Kelly Smith and Chris Grimley, the collection features wine racks, coasters, placemats, totes, book boxes and bowls, all made locally with heavy wool felt.
Always a fan of storage solutions that will blend seamlessly into our decor (and not stick out like a sore thumb), one of our favorite products (currently sold out, probably due to overwhelming holiday demand) is the Book Box, a dual-color storage bin for your books, dvds or other household objects. Priced at $120, it's made from naturally water-resistant wool felt and Danish wool by Kvadrat and comes in 4 color combinations.
