Good Thing, a vibrant and youthful studio out of Brooklyn, NY, maintain a functional yet simple aesthetic with their everyday decor. The Field Candlestick blends hand painted wood with steel - and could replace easter eggs in your easter-egg hunt next year!
Pelle, another studio out of good ol' Brooklyn, NY is a brand I can get behind. They pride themselves in designs that are in reach of everyday consumers and should be "lived with, handled, worn and enjoyed!" Spectrum is a set of 12, soy wax candles present a visual spectrum of color and olefactory spectrum of scents.
As the candles burn down, a unique artform begins to take shape from the excessively drippy wax. If ithe design sloth owned a set of these candles, the finished product would be mounted on the wall.
Another set of functional objects for the everyday design lover by Pelle - the Joyce Candle Holder - are composed of construction-grade lumber with cracks and splints filled with bright white material (probably resin.) This design strays just far enough away from the material's natural form, elevating it from mundane to desirable.
