When looking for inspiration for a new line of lighting, Søren Rose hit the road. In search of vintage lighting and hardware bits and bobs from the 1930s, the idea was to create a series of stylish lighting that is the sum of its parts. They searched far and wide for the most interesting antique lamps and reusable lamp parts, gathering all of their findings together, laying them out and creating something new from the old. The results are stylish forms with classic elements and finishes that give them timeless staying power. Here’s a closer look at the line for Menu, currently on sale for 15% off at Design Public.


Menu Reade Table Lamp The elegant curves of this brass table lamp create a simple yet elegant structure that sits lightly atop a desk, nightstand, counter or table. It is unobtrusive yet packs a design punch.


Menu Warren Wall Lamp. This lamp extends to the spot where you need light. If you’re short on space next to the bed, it will provide lovely reading light from overhead without taking up much space. The brass hides the cords so that you can plug it in stylishly without having to hard-wire it.


Franklin_Chandelier_Brass_-_Sren_Rose.jpgMenu Franklin Chandelier. This quirky fixture adds a dynamic touch overhead, bringing a zig-zag of lines and light right at eye level and above.




Menu Leonard Chandelier. This chandy’s lines meld Art Deco and mid-century modern style in a fresh way.



Menu Duane Pendant. A warm glow emits from the hemispherical shape of this lovely piece. It combines industrial and elegant elements which means it can fit into just about any style of room.

Menu Lighting is 15% off at Design Public through October 31.

On Trend: Brass Is Back

I know, I know. The word “brass” gives you flashbacks to all that very lacquered, fake looking, gaudy ’80s stuff. But that image of brass is all wrong. Let’s set the record straight.

Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 1.58.14 PMToday’s brass has earned that oh-so-popular design word, “patina.” It’s unlacquered and thus a living finish, which means it changes over time and gets even better with age. It can go glam, traditional, modern, new bohemian … it’s really just about what you pair this warm finish with. Here are some of our favorite fresh ways to welcome brass back into our homes. 1940539_Duane_Pendant_Black_SrenRose_01.jpg

Menu Duane Pendant. An assemblage inspired by repurposed lamp parts, this powder-coated steel light is a black hemisphere on the outside, and illuminates the bulb by surrounding it with a warm glow inside.


Chilewich Rectangular Drift Placemat. Inspired by traditional Japanese woodblock prints, this woven mat adds a base that will bring metallic movement to your tablescape. 4116_1.jpg

Ferm Living Brass Tray. Impress your guests. This is an easy way to corral your booze and glassware in a chic arrangement.


Menu Franklin Chandelier. This solid brass piece is a tribute to old-school Manhattan hardware stores.



Menu Pepe Marble Mirror. Inspired by the glamorous style of Italy in the 1950s, this mirror is at once modern and an elegant throwback, crafted with a brass frame and marble base.


ferm LIVING Hexagon Brass Pots. We’r all for mixing metals, but if you’ve switched out your fixtures and hardware for brass you may just want to coordinate. ferm LIVING has all kinds of accessories including a brass toilet paper holder and a brass paper towel holder.  The small vase seen here would do a great job as a toothbrush holder.

Will you be bringing brass into your home? Please let us know how in the comments section.

It’s another one of those silly national “holidays,” but we’ll use any excuse to savor our java. In honor of this very important day, here are some of our favorite coffee prep and delivery vessels.


notNeutral Cooper Hewitt LINO Coffee Mug Set of 4These are a very special series of mugs developed by notNeutral in partnership with the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum. This inaugural series features a selection of textile patterns from the museum’s iconic collection, designed by artists Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser during the early 1900’s Wiener Werkstätte era.


Stelton AJ Coffee Serving SetLaunched in 1967, the Cylinda Line designed by Arne Jacobsen immediately attracted considerable attention for its serene and functionalist design. It’ an iconic set any modernist will love for life, and hand down for generations.

Tanssi_coffee_cup_0_2L.jpgiittala Tanssi Coffee Cup. A cup inspired by an opera called “The Cunning Little Vixen” — we’re all in. “Tanssi” means “dance” in Finnish, and it’s also the name for this exuberant new tableware collection illustrated by London-based Finnish artist Klaus Haapaniemi.


Nambe Bulbo Coffee Canister with Scoop. This sleek little canister combines sleek steel with warm acacia wood. Designed by Lou Henry, it’s the perfect way to store, access and scoop high quality coffee beans.


Eva Solo Madam Solo Coffeemaker. Even the strictest minimalist won’t have trouble leaving this simple porcelain coffeemaker out on the counter. It’s Eva Solo’s modern take on the iconic Danish coffee pot, Madam Blue. The coffee pot enables you to brew coffee in two different ways. Either the traditional way using a coffee filter, or ‘al fresco’, which is how coffee was originally brewed.

links-coffee-set-blk.jpg_1notNeutral Links Coffee Set. Along with the coffee, the strong graphic on these pieces will help you wake up. Inspired by the way bicycle chains fit together, the design is by Rios Clementi Hale Studios. Includes a coffee pot with lid, a creamer and sugar bowl.


Muuto Push Coffee Maker. This contemporary Nordic press fits right in on a shelf full of other favorite shapely objects.  “I wanted to make a coffee press, which is both soft to look at and soft to hold. The friendly shape goes hand in hand with the warm and cozy atmosphere that a good cup of coffee provides.” — designer Mette Duedahl.


Eastvold Elko Coffee Table – Bamboo. Of course, every good hot cup needs a good place to perch. This handmade coffee table is at once contemporary yet fills us with nostalgia for the mid-century modern era.

Nambe Twist Coaster Set of 6And of course, you’ll want to protect your coffee table. We love this set because it doubles as a gorgeous sculptural piece you’ll admire even when the coasters aren’t in use.

Whatever you do today, take a second to stop and smell the coffee.

Let Fall Engage All of Your Senses

The days are getting shorter and crisper and the leaves are starting to change color. When we think of fall, we think of our how intensely our senses are engaged. The crunch of leaves under our feet, the aroma of hot cider, the nip in the air, the roar cheers erupting from the stadium down the road. Here are some of our favorite ways to engage our senses during this wonderful season.

We love to hear the crackle of an outdoor fire pit  while we enjoy its toasty warmth.



We want to inhale the Hygge in through our nostrils. Do you know about Hygge? In a nutshell, it’s Scandi-speak for cozy warm and welcoming. Feelings these candles have distilled into a scent. 9335__dp

We want to see the lovely reflections of candlelight. Our least favorite thing about fall is that our days get shorter and evening falls sooner. So we make the most of it by enjoying romantic candlelight. Sempli_INCBP_filled2.jpg

We want to taste ingredients we’ve infused into our hot toddies. It’s a great time of year for cinnamon, cherries and dare we say, pumpkin spice.


We want to feel the cozy warmth of alpaca wool when we’re snuggled up under a throw.

What’s your favorite thing about fall? Please let us know by leaving a comment.
