I’m Obsessed: Eames Rocker Chair

Herman Miller – The Eames Rocker

Plastic, plywood, play. The fertile, curious minds of Charles and Ray Eames invented the modern American furniture vocabulary. Along with other visionaries like George Nelson, the Eameses brought new materials, new processes, and a new attitude to interior design. And they often did it by playing with form and structure in an inventive, childlike way. Charles encouraged experimentation among his staff, saying that he wanted “to have people working on useless projects. These have the germ of new concepts.”  —HermanMiller.com

Woolrich Civil War Blankets:  Civil War blankets were made by Woolrich and supplied to troops from 1861–1865. Today, historical groups and movie studios purchase bolts of Woolrich fabric to create authentic uniforms and blankets for re-enactments of this important period of American history.

I’m Obsessed: Quilts

Haptic Lab makes these custom quilts for any city…Cartography meets textile! 

Soft-Maps (c) are quilted maps of cities and neighborhoods that represent someone’s unique place in the world. Wrap your children in them, have a picnic, pull them close during the next Nor’easter. As a keepsake, a Soft-Map serves as an intimate reminder of home: where you’re from and where you belong. In a world that is increasingly digitized and remote, a quilted Soft-Map provides an expressive way to reconnect with your surroundings.

Not only beautiful, these blankets can be used as a mnemonic tool. As your child grows up with a Soft Map, they learn to read their neighborhood and its landmarks in a tactile, easily remembered way.

Soft-Maps are the 2x winner of the 2009 Apartment Therapy Design Showcase and have been featured in Coolhunting, PSFK, Brooklyn Based, L.A. Times and the Cooper Hewitt’s 2009 Reader’s Choice National Design Awards. The quilts are now offered in three different varieties: knotted baby quilts, readymade machine-stitched maps, and custom handmade maps.
