Frankfurt's Blanket Store

Nestled in behind a small glass storefront in central Frankfurt is a one-of-a-kind throw utopia. Blanket Store is a niche boutique dedicated to—yes, you guessed it—blankets, and owner Natalie Gray has found inventory that’s stitched, knit, and woven around the world.

Stockholm Furniture Fair 2010

Every February, the very best new Nordic furniture designs debut at the Stockholm Furniture Fair and the Northern Light Fair.

In a leafy residential area a few miles from downtown Kansas City, Missouri, an enterprising architect saw opportunity where others saw trouble.

Drawn From Clay

Increasingly, consumers like to know the source of the things they buy and products are often sold with information that goes beyond mere "Made in the USA" labels to tell the story of the item's origins. The Dutch ceramics company Atelier NL has taken this concept to its most pared down conclusion, designing a line of ceramics made from clay collected on farms around the Netherlands and stamped with a geo-ID tag.
