Skip made homemade waffles for breakfast. He does not mess around!

Meet Skip Flynn. Modern design fan, collector of uniquely shaped baking pans (He has a honeycomb one), Triumph Motorcycle enthusiast and Design Public customer.

He’s also one of my best friends so on a recent visit to Boston I ended up staying at Skip’s new loft in historic Quincy Massachusetts. Enjoy the pictures.

Posted by Ali | View all posts by Ali

Last May I came across Jessica’s Flickr photo of her dog, Mick, sitting alongside a Fauna Boston Terrier pillow. My heart melted. This posting is a little bittersweet because Mick, aka Mister Puppy, aka the best dog ever, passed away last year. My heart is melting even more.

What do you do? I am a PhD student in art history, and I work at a cute shop called O’Suzannah

DP customer Mary Krefting has it made. 1.) Her oldest child, Mason (age 3), is brilliant. To Mason, a Zid Zid Poof is not just a Zid Zid Poof.

Well done, Mary. Well done.

True Modern Orange 4 Drawer Dresser
because it pulled my son’s room together beautifully and is easy for him to open and close the drawers himself so he can choose his own clothes in the morning.
