  New Microwave Print by Caylon Hackwith
“We partnered with Color Space in Minneapolis to do limited edition prints. I love this print. It’s so awesome and I can’t say why. The artist wanted to reference the exciting stage of waiting for something. There’s also this modern housewife angle, too.”

  Pliny the Lounger Chair by Loll
“This is actually a modern take on an old 1939 lounge chair. It’s made out of milk jugs by Loll, which is based in Duluth, and part of a sustainable line of indoor and outdoor furniture. It’s insanely durable; you can have it outside in the snow all winter and it’s fine, just what we need in the Midwest.”

  New Courthouse-Catbird Quilt, Exclusively for Forage by Hopewell
“This is made by two friends out in LA who come from a family of quilt makers. I love how simple this is. Quilts have such a grandma connotation, so it’s great they took this old thing and made it so modern. We’re releasing it here in June.”

  Madrone Longboard by Grow Anthology
“A bicoastal duo from Minneapolis and Seattle make this out of post-consumer compacted waste. It’s sort of the wildcard piece. We’re certainly not their busiest market, I just love the smart design.”
