Design Crush: Fort Makers.

Our love for mobiles is no secret (we blogged about a few notables here), and these wooden creations by New York City artist Noah Spencer are among our new favorites – we used one in our lastest Nursery Project.

Noah belongs to Brooklyn artist collective Fort Makers, which has produced a vast array of inspiring works including candlesticks, cutting boards, jewelry, textiles, and more. Consider us fans.

Design Crush: Monroe Workshop.

Los Angeles-based furniture designer Matt Monroe has a background in fine art, and it shows. An experienced sculptor and carpenter, his specially-built creations are expertly and elegantly crafted without a hint of pretension. A few of our favorites: custom-upholstered tree trunk stools; a White Oak coffee table with splayed copper legs; and a handsome wooden rocker just right for a nursery.

If Matt’s pieces look familiar, it may be because they’re the building blocks of our beloved Buffalo dining room – Matt’s rustic log bench makes an appearance in this playful homage to our Wolf Pups, too. And if his furniture wasn’t beautiful enough on its own, it’s recently been joined by a collection of handmade toys – including a maple rocking horse and a herd of tiny “robot horses” – constructed of hardwood and cotton rope. Its minimalist design at its finest – and its most fun.
