Magis Is On Sale!

Hey All! Now through June 10, save 15% on all pieces from Magis! This is great news for those of you who are looking to add some bright color to your screened-in porch like I am (or your deck, or your patio, or your dining room or desk…) I choose these amazing Folding Air Armchairs in grasshopper green myself:

The Magis Chair One with 4 Star Base adds some mad geometry to any space. I think it would be extra cool in a Buckminster Filler-designed geodesic dome, but how many of us have those? I’ll put it in my funky cottage, thank you very much.

By the way, this chair also comes with concrete base and four legged base style options.

I don’t have a pool, but I’d pretend I did and just lounge in this beauty underneath the sprinkler. The Magis Paso Doble Chaise Lounge‘s  sexy curves would distract me from my sad, pool-less situation.

Need a spot to rest that pitcher of refreshing mojitos? Look no further, the Magis One Bistro Table is here, just waiting for you to order it up and perch your cocktails atop it.

Moving indoors, Magis Steelwood Shelving Systems have a gorgeous contemporary look that will hold everything without clunking up a room. Use it for media, office tomes and binders, books, kitchen stuff. It’s also great for people who like to keep things folded and stacked in the closet.

So peeps, get on it, because this sale is only through June 10, 2013.

Spot On Square: Modern, Sustainable, and Generally Awesome {A Giveaway!}

I have a confession: working in the modern design industry has turned me into a complete design snob (I mean this in a very positive way, of course).  I used to wander into a furniture store and have no clue what the various pieces of wood, metal, and plastic staring back at me were saying.  However, being that I come from a background in fashion, I could tell you all about clothing – and pinpointing the standout items, brands, and trends was second nature to me.  Now that I’ve been in this world for almost a year I’m beginning to feel the same way about modern design – I can tell you all about the industry and about standout items and brands.

Which is why I’m so excited to share my passion for Spot on Square – this is a brand that truly stands out – it shimmers with awesome.

In the sea of modern design, Spot on Square’s line of simple, eco-conscious, quality products truly shine.  The company was started by husband and wife team, Bob and Nicole Springer (an industrial designer and teacher, respectively) who used their combined knowledge to break into the world of modern furnishings. Spot on Square began their line specifically for children but it has morphed into a line that is fitting for folks at any point in their lives – the products are so well-designed that they can carry you through a number of life stages – from bringing home a new baby all the way to retirement!

I’ll be honest – chances are that there are no babies in my future.  I already have two kids and well, my clock is quickly running out of time over here.  But when I look at the Spot on Square Roh Crib, I have to say that it almost makes me reconsider my decision. Almost.  Then I remind myself that having the opportunity to design a really cool, modern nursery is simply no reason to bring a child into this world.  And I almost convince myself.  Almost.  And let me just tell you – I’ve spent a lot of time shopping for cribs and other nursery decor (it’s a sickness, really) and I can tell you without hesitation that Spot on Square makes some of the coolest modern cribs on the market.

And don’t just take my word for it.  I have proof.

Their furniture would make an awesome addition to anyone creating the perfect modern nursery.  It’s also your lucky day because we here at Design Public haver partnered with our friends at Spot on Square to give away one of their gorgeous Eicho cribs to one of our readers here on Hatch!  Use the form below to enter – we will draw a winner sometime after July 1, 2012.  Please share with your family and friends – we would love for one of our awesome fans to win!

Ok – if you haven’t finished shopping for Father’s Day yet, now is the time.  We’ve brought you 2 amazing weeks of items that would be perfect for the brand new dad in your life – since dads are in fact, dudes, we personally don’t think he should have to suffer by carrying around an overly frilly, bright pink, plastic-covered diaper bag.  You totally know the ones I’m talking about, don’t you?

Thankfully, the folks at Petunia Pickle Bottom understood the need for dad to have a rugged, functional bag that can take him, well, almost anywhere.  Which is why I’d like to introduce you to our final giveaway in honor of Father’s Day – the Scout Nomad Knapsack.

Petunia Pickle Bottom Scout Nomad Knapsack

Check out some of the awesome features of the Scout Nomad Knapsack:

  • Teak-coated cotton canvas shell exterior with wipe-able nylon interior, and black cotton straps.
  • Fully adjustable straps take you from backpack to messenger bag in not time flat.
  • Large handle at the top to grab-and-go, antique brass hardware, leather trim and red stitching throughout.
  • Front zippered pocket includes a cell phone and MP3 player pocket and two snap-expandable exterior bottle pockets.
  • The interior of the Scout Nomad Knapsack includes two bottle pockets, two organizational pockets, one large flat pocket with a snap enclosure, and a monogrammed plastic wipes case in a coordinating color.

Sounds pretty awesome, right?  I couldn’t agree more.

Diaper Bags For Men

If you’ve already entered to win the Scout Walkabout Baby Carrier and the Scout Satellite Sling and haven’t received the “congrats – you’re a winner!” email – then this is your last chance to enter to win a gift for dad this Father’s Day!  We have partnered with our friends at Petunia Pickle Bottom to give this awesome bag away to one lucky Hatch reader.  The contest runs  from June 4th through June 12, 2012 at 11:59 pm PST – so be sure to enter using the widget below!  Good luck!

Father’s Day Gift Idea: Scout Walkabout Baby Carrier from Petunia Pickle Bottom

Continuing our pre-Father’s Day Celebration, we wanted to introduce to you the Scout Walkabout Carriers by Petunia Pickle Bottom.  If you remember last week, we discussed great diaper bags for men – and how men often get the shaft when it comes to design for the kids in their lives.  We introduced you to the Scout Satellite Sling – perfect for the new dad or the soon-to-be dad in your life, and now that you’ve already got the scoop on the best diaper bags for men, we thought it was time to talk about great baby carriers for men.

Baby Carriers for Men

The Scout Walkabout Carriers featured rugged construction, striking colors, and chiseled lines – basically dad doesn’t have to be ashamed to seen with this strapped to his chest.  And of course, since father/baby bonding is an important part of the first year experience we want to make it as simple as possible.  When it looks like this – how can you complain?

Best Baby Sling For Men

In anticipation of Father’s Day, we’ve joined together once again with our friends at Petunia Pickle Bottom to offer one of these awesome Scout Walkabout Carriers as a giveaway to one of our readers.  Use the widget below to enter – the giveaway will run through Tuesday, June 5th.  Best of luck!
