Top o’the afternoon to you all and happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Today’s got me feeling very green. Not with envy, just happy with all things kelly, chartreuse, lime, apple and pine. Today’s a great day to give yourself a St. Patty’s break and enjoy some Irish eye candy.

It’s also causing a craving to see the beautiful green hills of Ireland. Today on our Facebook page, we joked that you should not visit this sublime spot in County Kerry if you’ve been drinking green beer (do people in Ireland even do that, or is that just a crazy American thing?)

And certainly stay away from the edge if you’re at the  Cliffs of Moher.

The Hexagons are where thousands of basalt columns meet.  Again, a visit is recommended before you hit the pub.

OK, OK, I promise to stop giving you vertigo after this one, it’s just too good. This is the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge is in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.

Let’s have an Irish/Zen moment. This magically green-covered walkway at Birr Castle calms.

Our current sales are so big, it’s hard to keep track. Don’t let any pieces you’ve been saving up for slip through the cracks. Artek is an modern furnishing brand established by the legendary husband and wife team of Alvar and Aino Aalto, along with art promoter Maire Gullichsen and art historian Nils-Gustav Hahl in 1935. They were way ahead of their time, leading the design pack and creating beautiful modern pieces destined to become icons. Here are some of the modern icons by Artek, currently 15% off at Design Public.
