modern gray beanbag armchair with blue Cordonnet stitching

Frolla Armchair by Skitsch

Beanbag chairs are mainstays in most family rooms, dens, and children's rooms and it's no wonder since they're casual, comfortable, and easy to move. Italian design company Skitsch just launched its Frolla armchair, an updated version of the beanbag chair that channels the informal vibe of the original but gives it a more supportive structure and sophisticated form. Designed by Andrea Radice and Folco Orlandini, Frolla is the perfect perch in which to curl up with a good book, plop down in front of the tube, or spend a lazy summer afternoon. The removable cover features cordonnet stitching in an electric blue yarn and the base fabric comes in a beige or grey cotton. Retail price is €590. Visit skitsch.it for more information.

bkr bottle five colors

The bkr Bottle

When Tal Soltz set out to design a reusable water bottle, dissatisfied with the clunky and chunky options on the market, she refused to compromise aesthetics to be environmentally friendly.

Each bkr holds 16 ounces of liquid in a rather comely and compact glass bottle sheathed in a silicone sleeve.

And the five colors the bottle comes in are quite alluring as well. We asked Soltz, who is President and Founder of the San Francisco-based company, a few questions about bkr. Here's what she has to say.
