This past year I stumbled across the six following sites and ended up wasting, I mean conducting extensive research for hours. I know that in this economy that the last thing on my mind should be shopping & I don’t need a thing but I dare you not to fall in love with something on every site.

Umbra – “decorate the way you want”

black + blum – creates products for the home and office, combining ruthless practicality with a mischievous and intellectually-satisfying design aesthetic

AREAWARE – If appreciation for beauty is central to what it means to be alive, then we want to embody this principle in even the simplest of things.

French Bull – melamine but with a modern spin.

A+R Store – Global design. Edited.

The Conran Shop – “Well Considered” products
