If you're not familiar with Poketo, let us introduce you to the husband and wife team of Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung on the occassion of their collection for Target. This collaboration, which includes totes, water bottles and umbrellas, is only the tip of the iceberg for the couple. Skip on over to their site and check out the array of items they have for sale. Designed by their incredible stable of young, talented artists, it ranges from plates to vases to lamps as well as a great selection of beautiful and affordable prints. Their vow to take art off of gallery walls and bring it into your home is one which they take very seriously...while having a lot of fun in the process!
When it's time to incorporate art into your home and your life, you might want to start with the prints. Sold in small enough editions that you won't see them at every house you visit, they're priced so that you can have an original piece by a young artist for about what you'd pay for your share of a really good dinner out.
If you're a little more adventurous, you might try a unique set of dishware, a colorful lamp, a mug for your morning coffee or stickies for your bare walls. Figure out your week in one of their planners, paste your decor tear sheets into one of their dreambooks, flag a picture in a favorite tome with one of their colorful bookmark tabs or tote your groceries home in one of their totes.
As the name (Angie's grandmother's corruption of the word "pocket") implies, it's hard not to walk away from their site with your virtual pocket literally bulging from wanting to take home one of everything. At these prices, you can. Click here to check it out for yourself. If you'd like to see their collection for Target, click here.
