Jabba the Hutt Pillow

You’d be hard pressed to find someone—in this or any other galaxy, no matter how far, far away—who is not a fan of Star Wars, and the insta-classic from 1977 is now a franchise that clearly needs no introduction. Bonnie Burton is an aficionado of the highest order and, as a lucky Lucasfilm employee, keeper of the StarWars.com kids section. Since 2004, she’s been posting regular craft projects bringing beloved characters—and Jar Jar Binks—to googly-eyed life, and recently released The Star Wars Craft Book, the very first published collection of Star-Wars-themed how-tos.

From the Show Floor: FLOR Tiles

While browsing the floor at Dwell on Design I had to stop in my tracks as I noticed this brightly colored rug. I would describe this rug as completely ridiculous, as its colors are garish and the patterns kind of make your eyes cross a little bit—and that's why I love it. As I approached the rug, it reminded me of a Missoni pattern, a pattern so few people can really pull off without looking like a rug themselves.

Business Behind Indie Design

The Business Behind Indie Design

There's more to making it as a designer than creating great goods—you also need to find an avenue through which to share your wares. On Sunday morning at Dwell on Design, Mohawk General Store co-owner Kevin Carney and Industry of All Nations-cofounders Fernando and Juan Gerscovich joined Dwell associate editor Jordan Kushins for a discussion about the business behind indie design. Here we share a few of their tips (and invite you to join in the conversation!).

From the Show Floor: Dwell Outdoor

Abuzz with visitors discovering and testing out all manner of sustainable alfresco products, Dwell Outdoor drew a huge crowd all day Saturday, with many filing in and out of a brand-new modern Airstream trailer and the eco-friendly home designed by ecofabulous founder Zem Joaquin. Standouts were the beautifully designed chicken coop, complete with real chickens, landscape architecture firm Shades of Green’s booth covered completely in real sod, and oversize pebble–like outdoor seating by Eis Design, but every one of the elements on the floor helped bring home the fact that sustainable outdoor living is striking, smart and here for good.
