Well that perspective has changes somewhat when I discovered Iacoli & McMcallister. They are a team of designers who use their knowledge and skills to create some of the coolest jewelry and furniture I've seen.
I love the simplicity, the use of natural material, and the use of color. I like the clean lines and modern look. Just love over all. And I not so subtly hinted to The Hubs that I wanted this necklace for my last birthday:
(He got the hint..:)
They don't only make jewelry either. They make amazing furniture that has won awards and is giving me some ideas of my own.
But what originally turned me on to them was their lighting. I don't remember where I first saw it but I was in love right away. If only I could afford it...
They also have a lot of other items as well. Like this bottle opener for example:
I don't usually use bottle openers but maybe the Hubs needs one? That still might be a gift more for me than for him. I just want an excuse to buy it.
I think this pink paper weight would look nice on my desk! Now that I'm working I need my desk to look cute right?
Maybe some cute mini pedestals? For all the plants I don't have but might get soon?
I just want some more Iacoli & McCallister in my life if you can't tell.
Their website is pretty fun to poke around too. Their "about" story is interesting and they have some pictures of their studio. It's for great inspiration and makes me want to toy around with new ideas and try to be creative and original as well.
