portland-based graphic design firm makelike is branching into the home decorating biz, and their hand-screenprinted wallpaper has got our motor running.

everything in the first collection is based on the cactus and its softer cousin the succulent. cheeky.

quilting flea

one of the more exciting things to come out of the already-thrilling brooklyn flea down the street (!) are the map quilts by emily fischer of haptic lab. her tone-on-tone cotton blankets retrace maps of brooklyn neighborhoods, from fort greene to red hook.




don’t worry, manhattan brethren, fischer will be adding downtown neighborhoods to the a la carte menu in november. until then – custom order or snag a pillow.

yvonne nieworth, a graphic designer based in dusseldorf, created a series of packaging for vanilla pudding packets. we love the variations on an unusual theme.
