Patchwork Puzzle, the new art gallery in Los Angeles and the collaboration with the museum

1. Amanda Jane Jones x Four-Dot Puzzles

Over the past two years, we’ve seen the rise of puzzles really take off. Artist collaborations, unique illustrations, and outstanding photography really took the puzzles from kitsch to modern. To be completely honest, I’ve never seen one that made me feel like I *absolutely had to* until now, with the Amanda Jane Jones X Four dot puzzle collaboration. The 1000-piece puzzle titled Anni (a nod to legendary textile designer Anni Albers) features a vibrant patchwork of geometric shapes and bright colors. This is a design that I can actually see myself framing and hanging up once it’s finished! The puzzle will launch next Thursday, October 20, on

2. The kettle that revolutionized electric pour-over kettles gets an update

In 2017, Companion launched its iconic Stagg ECG Electric Kettle and third wave coffee has never been the same. The Stagg has become a favorite among entering brewers, seasoned baristas, and everyday coffee aficionados who want to brew their own cup of tea at home. Five years later, Fellow presents its last two launches: the Stagg ECG Pro and Stagg ECG Pro Studio Edition. While kettles still have fan-favorite features like the sleek gooseneck spout that provides easy pouring, a counterbalanced handle for comfortable pouring, and temperature control that keeps the heat at the exact degree, there are some new features that I personally like that add improvement. , flexibility and control for coffee lovers of any degree.

A new lid design features a curved slotted vent hole and a lid gasket to prevent excess water from dripping. A Guide mode takes the guesswork out of brewing different coffee styles and types of teas by giving preset temperatures. The new Schedule+ Chime program lets you set your kettle to reach a specific temperature at a certain time and hear a chime when it’s ready – imagine having perfectly heated water as soon as you wake up so you can go straight to your morning cup of tea or coffee!

Both Stagg ECG Pro and Stagg ECG Pro Studio Edition the versions come with a high-resolution color LCD screen but the latter is made with high-end materials (metal and glass). The Stagg EKG Pro is also available in white, unlike the Studio Edition. To learn more, visit

3. The Cereal Magazine co-founder opens her first gallery in the United States

Rosa Park is one of those women whose perspectives on design always interest me, whether it’s for Cereal Magazine, reporting with brands like B&B Italia, or her new venture, Francois Gallery. Rosa opens the art gallery‘s second location – the first-ever location in the US – later this month on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood (her first location was in her hometown of Bath, UK) . I’m excited to pay a visit to see the beautiful conservation of the works and learn more about the space (designed by Los Angeles-based studio BC) which draws inspiration from Korean aesthetics and features a curved partition inspired by a moon pot and a modern One day rendition of a traditional Korean hanok courtship.

4. The Metropolitan Museum of Art x J. Hannah

Another collab that excites me is The Met x J. Hannah. I first discovered Jess Hannah years ago for her distinct eye for the world that she captured and showcased through her Instagram. Later, she launched her line of toxin-free nail polish and her line of fine jewelry, both of which have achieved cult status. She recently collaborated with none other than The encounter on a exclusive varnish set of three shades that nod to works of art from Tudor England and a jewelry capsule inspired by Egyptian antiquities.

5. Sixpenny Little Neva is shrunken for children

As a parent of two, I’m always on the lookout for kid-friendly products that don’t look so awful (does everything have to be primary colors?). When Sixpenny shared their new launch, the Little Neva chair, I immediately wanted it. The perfectly sized chair for kids is a scaled down version of Sixpenny’s popular Neva design and comes with two easy-to-clean covers, one in cotton linen and one in recycled faux fur. I’m already a huge Sixpenny fan (we have the Gabriel sectional in our own house) and I’m thinking of adding the Little Neva to our playroom to create a reading nook.
