The Boskke Planters—available in a single cube and three-cube versions—are transparent, self-watering planters. Fehrenbacher says, “I am coveting these transparent planters right now! I love the design concept of transparency; in the case of these plant pots you can see the roots and thus the inner life and health of your plants. This would make a great gift for kids or adults.”
Also from Boskke, the Sky Planter contains a self-watering mechanism to keep the plant healthy, while suspended from the ceiling. This is an ideal option for small spaces, as it declutters tabletops or floors from planters. According to Fehrenbacher, “This hanging 'Sky Pot' takes the idea of a traditional plant pot and literally turns it upside down, making a great, fun, statement piece for a home.”
The Follow Me Portable Lamp from Marset is another one of Fehrenbacher's favorites. “I love this adorable, mushroom-shaped lamp so much. It somehow manages to be both modernly minimalist and fairytale evocative without being overly cutesy. I love that it is an LED lamp, and that it has a wooden handle.”
The Soft Map City Quilts from Emily Fischer and Haptic Lab are innovative blankets. Says Fehrenbacher, “Haptic Lab's incredibly detailed Soft Map City Quilts really need to be seen and touched in person to realize just how awesome they are. These handmade cotton quilts track the streets, parks, and intricate details of your chosen city in brown hand-stitching, juxtaposing the craftiness of traditional quilt-making with the visual, high-tech data of satellite mapping.” Pictured here is New York City.
The Totem Candles are handcrafted on a lathe from 100 percent USA beeswax. Fehrenbacher adds, “Any kind of beeswax candle is wonderful, and these Totem Candles are doubly fabulous for their beautiful shapes. Beeswax smells great, burns slowly, and is the best kind of candle for your health and the environment.”
