New York, New York

Kathleen and Lisa head to New York tonight for the New York International Gift Fair! We love this market, as it has a strong focus on design and gives us the opportunity to meet face-to-face with global designers we normally only speak with on the phone or email. And we always find lots of great new designs to bring your way. Stay tuned for our latest discoveries...

This visual diary of a red eye flight by artist Christoph Niemann seemed a fitting entry to share on our way out of town. Click on the link below for a very funny and painfully true journal:

We will be in touch upon our return!
