Just when you thought there weren’t any ways left to apply original art to home accessories, <a href="https://society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a> proves you wrong. This week, they’ve launched <a href="https://society6.com/coasters?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">coasters</a>, <a href="https://society6.com/serving-trays?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">serving trays</a> and <a href="https://society6.com/cutting-board?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">cutting boards</a> to their catalogue, rounding out everything you’d need for summer entertaining.
The cutting boards
are made of solid baltic birch wood in either a rectangular or round shape with the art printed on a smooth gloss finish side. You can use the wood side to prep food, the design side to serve food, and then hang as kitchen wall art when you’re all done.
The serving trays
are available in three sizes and are made with 100% eco-friendly bamboo. A versatile accessory in your home, these trays can be used to organize knick knacks, a catch-all at the entry way, a flat surface to place on top of ottomans – the list is endless.
Lastly, the coasters

Working with perfume makers in Grasse, France (widely known as the perfume capital of the world), Alessi and Wanders created four traditional, seasonal scents named after the evocative mood each scent elicits: Brrr, a wintry mix of bergamot, lily of the valley and musk; Ahhh, a spring freshness of cardamom, hyacinth and vetiver; Hmm, a summery bouquet of figs, red fruits and mixed woods; and Grrr, a smokey combination of incense, cedar wood and moss. A fifth scent, Shhh, was created to explore the abstract with hints of eucalyptus, rose and pachouli.
Each of the scents comes in a variety of home accessories, including scented candles, leaf diffusers, room sprays, lava stone diffusers, bottle candle holders, and candle snuffer.
The leaf diffusers are

There comes a point in time when we’re no longer satisfied with the status quo in our lives, including our surroundings, and feel the need to review, reflect, and refresh. Founders and creative directors Suzy and Casper Vissers, as well as their exclusive designer Sjoerd Vroonland, realized this three years ago and began to research and develop a collection that centers around this pivotal moment, and so the team’s new design label <a href="https://revised.com/" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">Revised</a> was born.
The first ever Revised collection includes seating, tables, storage items, lighting, and home accessories. Each piece conveys comfort, warmth, and soul, like brand new furnishings and fixtures that have the soul of a passed down heirloom.
With an emphasis on conjuring feelings of warmth and welcome, the Revised collection is made of up of simple lines, soft curves and slender silhouettes in materials such as wood, marble, metal and glass.

Spring is finally and officially here. You either fall in a few camps: 1) excited that winter is over and warmer temperatures are on the horizon, 2) still experiencing Winter and awaiting the day when the snowstorm passes, or 3) dreading allergy season. ;) Regardless, the turn of a new season means a fresh wardrobe + new color palettes. Here are a few things I’m eyeing to get from <a href="http://www.society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a> to invite Spring into my own home:
<p class="p1">Visiting the <a href="http://www.wanteddesignnyc.com/wd2017/manhattan/" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">WantedDesign Manhattan</a> exhibition is always one of our favorites during <a href="http://design-milk.com/tag/nycxdesign" data-wpel-link="internal">NYCxDesign</a> week and this year was no exception. It was a packed house, filled with attendees, modern design, creative makers, and forward-moving thinkers. As we made our way from one end to the other of the Terminal Stores, a few exhibitors caught our eyes – here are some of our favorites:</p>

has designed a collection of bowls made from ceramic and cork.
From the designer
In Mediterranean culture, “dysfunction” can be seen as the anthropological ability to find a way round, an ad hoc solution to make up for a shortcoming.
Here, the bowls gain a new ‘stability’ from an added support or prop which holds them up. It is an instinctive gesture, not designed as the only or definitive solution.
The choice of the cork – a symbol of wine in Mediterranean culture – evokes memories of the countryside and the habit of using corks to mend everyday objects for re-use.

Lithuanian interior designer Donatas Žukauskas
has created a collection of candle holders.
From the designer
Exclusive handmade interior decor elements are valued for an artistic forms, naturality and originality.
This special collection was created following the conception “closer to nature, but also suitable for a modern interior”. During the day it is an active interior decoration, and on the evening time – a romantic candle light creating unpredictable play of shadows.
Sculptural decorations are made of used paper. Paper mass mixed with glue, dried out and treated acquires the characteristics of tree anew: it gives solidity, natural qualities, color and texture. The piece is polished and covered with varnish, thus it is not afraid of humidity.

has designed a cordless table light called the Mush Lamp.
p style="text-align: center;">
Mush Lamp is a family of cordless table lights including button, cone and pan. The form is derived from a Mushroom, with a standard base and different head options. The base cylinder, made from natural beech wood houses the battery, LED and mechanisms, while the head in ceramic and wood chips acts as a diffuser to create a warm ambient light that can be adjusted with a dimmer switch to suit the chosen environment. The cordless lamp allows for the freedom of use in different locations within the home, office, restaurants, etc…
Mush Lamp projects up to 300 luxes of warm light from its diferent heads. In its regular mode, its dimmable LED will emit 200 luxes for more than 6 hours on a single charge and will be completely charged in 2 hours.

will introduce the POT.PURRI collection at Ventura Lambrate
in Milan next month.
From the designers
POT.PURRI is a mixture or collection of miscellaneous or diverse items. A combination of incongruous things.
For us it is a collection of small, modular containers, designed with some basic parts that through various materials and combinations can construct more than 50 unique objects with different shapes and capacities, from lamps to tableware.
Inspired by the ambition of ‘cutting distance’ between design and material and ‘fluctuating shapes’ as our expression of contemporary deisgn, the project is cultivated around the concept of modularity and the customization.
This new approach towards the flexibility of the pieces fusion with the constant possibility of upgrading or changing, focuses at a wide spectrum of new users.
The project allows the user to mix and match shapes, materials and colors. We shaped the concept based on modular elements, with different dimensions and diameters that can be mutually paired and combined consequently, providing unlimited possibilities.
