Sneak Peek: Our New Apartment Therapy Capsule Collab!

A few months back, my good friend Christiane Lemieux of Cloth & Company (and also founder of Dwell Studio) asked me to collaborate on a capsule furniture collection using her brand new weapon: a huge digital printer on which she can now print her designs in minutes. After getting the pitch and then touring the factory in Chicago, I was not just impressed. I was blown away. The possibilities of digitally printing fabric are as huge as digital was to photography. I was in. (далее…)

Introducing Max Plexibox: The Framing Gamechanger — Maxwell Ryan + Simply Framed

For our latest collab, I teamed up with Dara Segal of Simply Framed to create a unique and sexy new way to frame and show art. I learned a lot and was eventually drawn away from trying to gussy up a traditional frame to explore something not yet done online: plexiglass box frames. After working closely with Dara on plexi weight and thickness, linen backing and even the color and size of the side screws, we’re done. Please welcome Max Plexibox. (далее…)

The New Trend is Nostalgia Tech: Reminders of the Past with Modern Capabilities — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

This round-up was a long time in the making and I’m so excited that it has finally come together. I know I tend to feature many brand new tech-y products in this series, and it certainly seems that the capabilities of technology in today’s world are endless: everything can connect to wifi, Bluetooth, and, you name it, it’s got an app. However, over the past year I’ve seen a new trend of «nostalgia tech» — technology that remind us of the past, but has been reinvented with modern capabilities. Today I’ve gathered my favorites from this genre to share with you: each of these products is useful, playful, and is sure to evoke a memory from a decade (or century) past. Take a look, watch the story, and tell us what you think in the comments! (далее…)

Design Show FOMO? Don’t Worry, We Saw It All at ICFF & Here are Some Favorites — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

Every year during New York Design Week I like to get out of the office and head over to ICFF (aka the International Contemporary Furniture Fair) to check out new design trends. There is always SO much to see, and I admit to having design show FOMO: I can’t help but walk every single row and check out every single booth. I somehow managed to get out of the Javitz center within a reasonable time frame, but not without a bag filled with business cards and fliers galore from all the sellers I visited. Though there were so many inspirational things to see, I managed to narrow it down. (далее…)

Here’s the post I wrote about the inspiration last week. (далее…)

Three Small Things to Throw in Your Bag to Make Your Day a Little Easier — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

I know I like to feature products or services that can sometimes seem to serve a very niche purpose (measuring pen, anyone?) but today I wanted to do something a little different. For this week’s Fantastic Find I rounded up a few items that are small enough to throw in your bag, cool enough that you’ll be bragging to your friends about how useful they are, and stylish enough that you won’t mind upgrading your other staples. Let’s open up our bag now, shall we? (далее…)

Mud Cloth Is the Trend We’re Seeing Everywhere, Including Our Capsule Collection — Amazon Capsule 2017

Simply the most popular home design trend that we’ve seen to date is the classic dark and light, crisp influence of Mud Cloth textiles. It’s generated the most views of any of our trend posts in the past year, so, after we experimented with Dark Florals, this was the next design trend we chose to explore in a capsule collection with Amazon: The Mud Cloth Collection for living room and bedroom. Jump below for a walk through of our new collection with Cloth & Company that is INSPIRED by Mud Cloth and pulls the theme across a small collection of home furnishings for every room (brief history of mud cloth here). It’s all available for purchase and can be in your home in just a few short days (thanks to the magic of Amazon’s free lightning speed shipping). (далее…)

The Future of Greeting Cards has Arrived (And Luckily It’s Just In Time for Mother’s Day) — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

Happy May everyone! I thought I’d take this moment to remind you (for your sake and for your mother’s) that Mother’s Day is just around the corner. It will quickly be followed by that deluge of events that all seem to hit us at once this time of year… birthdays, weddings, showers (baby and bridal), graduations, you name it. Luckily back at the NY NOW show in February, I came across the lovely folks behind Inklings Greeting Cards. I’ve been waiting for the right moment to share this gem with you all, and it seems there’s no time like the last-minute shopping crunch to swoop in with a Fantastic Find (and an exclusive discount code) to save the day!

This Ballet Teacher Inspires All Of Us — The Art of Living

Following up from my last post about my aunt Sheila, which I’m so pleased you all liked, this one is a wonderful reversal of the camera in which we interview her students about HER. As with the last, this is all the video mastery of Quinn Wharton, Sheila’s grand nephew and my second cousin. It’s a family affair! (далее…)

Attention Vinyl Lovers: A Record Club for a New Generation — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

When I was down in High Point celebrating our curated furniture collaboration with Cloth & Company and Amazon last month, I met a lot of wonderful people at our launch party, some who worked in the furniture industry and some who did not. One acquaintance in the latter category was one of the founders of Vinyl Me, Please, who gave me a first-hand account of his company and its story. I can only describe Vinyl Me, Please as a service that mixes subscription boxes, book of the month clubs, and your local record store, and I knew it was something that our readers needed to see. Personally, I have never considered myself much of a record person, but I got myself signed up right away; by the time I was back in New York, I had my first record delivered to my doorstep. Today I’m going to unbox it with you so you can get an insider peek and see if you too want to join the club! (далее…)
