With great new products pouring in, it can be hard to stay on top of what’s new over here at Design Public sometimes! Here are all the details on just a few new products we are proud to carry.


Umbra Leanera Coat and Shoe Rack

Why we love it: Like us, we know many of you may be tight on space. The Umbra Leanera can create an instant coat closet, guest room closet or mudroom rack where you don’t have one with an easy lean against the wall. It’s pleasing mix of simple materials creates a sculptural effect.

Designer: Wesley Chau

Materials: Wood and metal

Dimensions: 74″ x 27 1/4″ x 2 1/2″. Includes 6 hooks and holds up to 6 pairs of shoes

Price: $150*



Royal Copenhagen Blue Fluted Half Lace Coffee Pot

Why we love it: As you may know, our sister store is Danish Design Store, and we have a penchant for all great Danish Design. The Blue Fluted pattern was Royal Copenhagen’s very first porcelain dinner service, introduced in 1775. Why so pricey? This is an heirloom that will be passed down for generations. And a lot of meticulous expert hand-painting goes into it— it takes 1,197 brush strokes just to paint one dinner plate!

Designer: Royal Copenhagen

Materials: Hand-painted porcelain

Dimensions: 34 oz

Price: $520*



Superliving Dynamo Pendant Light

Why we love it: The shape of this simple pendant gives it retro mid-century appeal that fits right in today. It comes in an array of colors including black, white and in metallic copper. The perforated edge lets the light come through in beautiful patterns.

Designer: Anette Stabel

Materials: Painted metal

Dimensions: 7.5″ w x 7.5″ d x 10″ high

Price: $115 (copper version is $135)*


Area Camille Pillow Cases in Pink

Why we love them: Winter is the best time to snuggle up in some truly luxurious bedding, and the most important spot to go luxurious is the spot that touches your face! And a pop of pink warms up a room. (If pink’s not for you, charcoal is also available.)

Designer: Anki Spets

Materials: 100% pure washed linen in a finer herringbone weave

Dimensions: 20″ wide x 25″ long

Price: $145 for a pair of standard pillow cases.* Other sizes and duvet covers are available as well.



Why we love it: The soft strips of fabric accentuate the pentagonal shape of this versatile pouf, which can be used as an ottoman or extra seat.


Designer:Anderssen & Voll

Materials: Wooden frame, moulded foam and Remix textile for Kvadrat

Dimensions: 17.7H x 34.6W x 33.8D

Price: $1249*

#GROWMODERN Event: Save Money, Save the Planet

So this is a very cool event. First, Gus*Modern is offering 15% off their merchandise at Design Public. Second, for each item sold, they are going to plant a tree. It’s a win-win. If you’ve had your eye on their Upcycle Ottomans, made from fair trade coffee bags, now’s the time to scoop them up. Oh dear. Planting trees, upcycling, FAIR TRADE? It’s almost too much. It’s something so well-intentioned it seems like it’s taken straight from a Portlandia sketch.

Here are a few more favorite Gus* selections for you to peruse while you online shop this weekend.


The Gus*Modern Halifax Chair

The Gus*Modern Conrad Desk

Don’t take too long to decide though. This feel-good sale ends on January 31, 2016.

Five Easy Ways to Get Toasty This Winter


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

Up until recently, it’s been unseasonably temperate across a lot of the country thus far. But now that the cold has set in, are you ready? Here are five of our favorite ways to get toasty.


1) A warm throw. I love to pick a pretty one so that I can simply throw it over the back of my sofa and wrap up in it when needed. A reversible one like the Hugo from Area is a great choice, because it gives you two different looks.


2) A cozier lighting scheme. Adding lamps to side tables, desks, mantels, countertops and other ready surfaces is a great way to make your home feel warmer on cold dark nights. If you’re shopping your house to switch things up for winter, try swapping lamps from different rooms around, and make sure the room where you spend the most time has a homey lighting scheme. My favorite is to keep a small table lamp on my kitchen counter — I never want to flick on all those bright overheads when I pop in for a quick snack break on movie night.


3) Keep a hot beverage station at the ready. Whatever your poison — cappuccino, chai, cocoa, cognac — make it easy to prep a hot toddy. Corral all your supplies in one place near the kettle or coffee machine — cups, saucers, teabags, sugar, mini marshmallows and whatever else you’ll need to prepare your favorite hot drinks.


4) Add warm layers on the floor. Bare feet on a cold tile floor are never a great combination. Make sure you’ve got something soft next to your bed for those first few steps when you rise, add a flat-weave or Oriental rug to your bathroom floor, perhaps bring an area rug into a room that’s usually bare-floored.


5) Bring in a relaxing scent. Stuff like shoveling snow and black ice are stressful. Unwind with scents like eucalyptus, peppermint, spruce or lavender.

How do you cozy up for winter at home? Let us know your favorite ways.
