This week, we're obsessing over a Project Runway winner's new collection, getting in bed with Domino, celebrating an iconic chair rerelease, and more.
Ashley Nell Tipton made history last year as the first designer of plus-size clothes to win Project Runway. The purple-haired powerhouse wowed with her Mexican heritage-inspired flower-crowned finale collection, and I, for one, have been anxiously awaiting her next move. Her line for JC Penney's Boutique brand debuted during New York Fashion Week and is part edgy, part flirty, and totally chic for fall. Here are some of our favorite pieces:
If lipstick print isn't your thing, the skirt and the crop top also come in pink stripe and black, and the cropped blouse in black and white.
Sales & shopping news of the week:
This chair's so metropolitan
Carl Hansen & Son is bringing back an old classic. Designed by Aksel Bender Madsen and Ejner Larsen in 1949, the iconic Metropolitan chair made its return in 2014 in a fully upholstered leather version. Starting October 1, you can also get snag it with a veneer back.
This bedding is #sodomino
Century-old The Company Store continues to keep it fresh, this time by partnering with shelter mag-cum-decor shop Domino. The line of duvets, pillows, and blankets mix and match for "a simple, laid-back aesthetic."
Artifact Uprising debuted their version of the so-hot-right-now float frame. The acrylic and brass piece comes in five sizes and includes photo printing on archival paper. Prices start at $65.
A classic lamp goes back to its roots
FLOS just reintroduced the Taccia lamp, but with a 21st century twist that makes it more like the original. Designed in 1958 by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, they originally chose a plastic bowl reflector, but the heat from the incandescent bulb melted the plastic and it was swapped with a glass bowl. Using an LED light source, the original design is reinstated.
