As shopping districts go, Union Square does almost nothing for me. As recently as the early 80s, the area was actually borderline scary, but now there’s just a different kind of blight: a crazy clusterbang of massive chains, food trucks, incense vendors and hangers-out of every stripe—all unwittingly conspiring to create some of the worst retail feng shui anywhere. The park itself has its charms—like a nicely maintained, extra-chill dog run, for instance. And there’s the greenmarket, always and forever. But truly, it’s ABC Home’s annual post-holiday sale that can not be denied, and that sucks me back into its haute-ethnic/bougie vortex year after year after year.
Right now I’m looking to up my game in the decorative pillow department. For a while now I’ve gone bright and ethnic, but now I’m feeling ethnic, but less literally so. Like this Eskayel print.
From Dwell Studio: So tribal, and yet so thoroughly versatile.
The charcoal and red stripes on this linen blanket feel both Moroccan and Pendelton-inspired, and make me so happy I almost don’t know what to do with myself.
This bedding set is unreconstructed in its ethnic appeal, and very much says I have an airy country house and do yoga and cleanses in a way that has nothing to do with my reality, but is somehow quite appealing nevertheless.
Not on sale but so totally up my alley I couldn’t not share: my favorite bird thing of the month.So far.
