Culture Club: Sumo Yokozuna Tea Cup

The Sumo Yokozuna Tea Cup ($7) shows mini portraits of the sumo elite, and only those who received the highest rank are pictured. The grid-like arrangement of athlete heads and Japanese characters builds an interesting rhythm that would add variety to other patterns in our... [More]

Culture Club: Daisy Drop Earrings

As far as abbreviations go, F.N.U.E. (acronym: From Now Until Eternity) is kinda like FUBU, but more Hallmark card, and less urban. We browsed the collections, and the Daisy Drop Earrings ($130-140) are best in show in their "He Loves Me II" line. F.N.U.E. developed... [More]

Culture Club: Zinnia Bud Wrist Purse

We don't need butter for this artichoke... Actually, it's the Zinnia Bud Wrist Purse ($800) by wearable artist, Kathleen Dustin. This exquisite lifelike piece is a masterpiece in itself (hence, the price tag), and we're being suffocated by floral themes this Spring, so this budding... [More]

Culture Club: Mala Meditation Beads

We remember the Kabala red thread craze made popular by Madonna and young Hollywood a few years back, and bringing a little spiritualism into our everyday lives can't hurt our good health. Try on the Mala Meditation Beads ($19) - they're more interesting than a... [More]

Culture Club: AJ Eklipta

Lighting up with the baby blue AJ Eklipta ($399-491) would be completely contrary our recent red-pink color scheme, but we'll gladly be the devil's advocate on this one. Part of the AJ series for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen (think fancy, kids), the differences... [More]

Culture Club: Times Square Station 42nd Street Chair

We know these aren't romantic in the traditional sense, but the Times Square Station 42nd Street Chair ($2200) have a certain nostalgia of place. For a gal who loves graphic design, typology and most importantly, the Big Apple, this furniture choice is snazzy. The real... [More]

Culture Club: Art Breaker Paperweight

Ok, the Art Breaker Paperweight ($65) seems like a hideous excuse for play on words at first, but when we see how it spins and can be rearranged in any way we want, we're turned on. All paperweights should do something rather than just sit... [More]

Insects Know Their Lives Painting

If we decided to decorate our walls with the joyful colors and mesmerizing geometric power of Maya Hayuk's Insects Know Their Lives Painting ($450), we probably wouldn't regret it. This acryilic and ink piece pulsates with energy and its title implies some connection to bugs... [More]

Graphite Objects

Old fashioned and beautiful, Graphite Objects ($190) seem to recall traditional writing utensils. We'd pair the quill with a simple stationery set for a killer love letter writing set. Constructing a V-day gift from left field will encourage creativity and romance. We're crossing our fingers... [More]

We're not sure what's wrong with our skinny-mini obsessed society today (we're talking to you, Ralph Lauren), but fat used to be in and even worshipped. The Venus of Willendorf Soap ($35) bears evidence of our ancient past. Take this glycerin soap as a cleansing... [More]

We feel as if we've stumbled into the rubble of ancient Rome, glancing over these Roman Fresco Magnets ($7). No one chipped these off the walls; they're resin reproductions of real thing, but they look genuinely antique, and that's what we're after. Being classic is... [More]

The gleaming hand-painted Kashimiri Bangles ($30) glow with jewel tones and ornate patterns. It's the papier-mâché coating that gives them surface texture that glimmers oh-so-lightly.
