Not all chairs are created equal. Some are made strictly to increase office productivity while others are meant for lazy movie days. And then there are those that are crafted for pure, unadulterated fun. Enter the hanging chair. Like the hammock, this playful and versatile seating option is made for lounging, swaying, and obviously, just hanging around. They were all the rage in the 1970s, and now they’re swinging back into action. From boho rattan chairs in the living room to groovy mod acrylic ones, these are the hot seats of

Say goodbye to parkas and hello to summer. Memorial Day weekend has arrived to usher in a season of sunshine, sandals, rooftop drinks, and lazy beach days. But the best thing about summer holidays are the places we celebrate them and the meals we celebrate them with.Whether you’re glamping in a state park or tossing back cocktails in your own backyard, chances are you’ll be indulging in barbecue, burgers and desserts of the fruity or frozen variety. In honor of one of our favorite eating holidays, we’ve matched up six great recipes

What’s the first thing you do when a seriously awesome plate of food arrives at your table? Instagram it. Like it or not, the documentation of the restaurant experience has become an integral part of eating out. And now savvy eateries have caught on, designing spaces and food to encourage social sharing. Instagram has been an enormous part of the runaway success of New York City’s Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, a luncheonette owned by Chef Joe Isidori. Their signature “Crazy Shakes,” outrageously elaborate sculptural milkshakes, have taken Instagram

Selfies, once a source of embarrassment, are now a staple of Instagram life. So it’s only natural that this phenomenon would make its way into the interior design world in the form of the shelfie. For our latest Designer Challenge, we asked our designers to style their own shelfies, transforming a basic bookcase into a statement piece. Though all of the submissions took bookcase styling to new heights, three winning designs totally upped the shelfie stakes. From style board to install, see how these these designers made an industrial bookcase much more than a place to host your library.

Let’s be honest—the 1980s are not the most stylish decade in history. From big, bad hair to neon parachute pants, it’s no wonder that many people want to forget the period ever happened. But in the quick world of design, nearly all trends end up recycled at some point. And when you give those salvaged styles a contemporary twist, even the most dated designs can be cool again. We’re looking at you, 1983. So give your puffy hair a pat down, rev up the DeLorean and set the flux capacitor

On the first Saturday of May, the city of Louisville hosts its biggest event of the year, the Kentucky Derby. This fine American tradition can pretty much be summed up by two things: large, elaborate hats and an excessive downpour of mint juleps. And if that dose of Southern style isn’t inspiring enough, it all sets the stage for what’s dubbed “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.” Once those two minutes are over, we can’t help but want to strap on some riding boots and add a serious dose of equestrian style at home.

Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican victory at the 1862 Battle of Puebla, but you’d never know that from the mess of sombreros, guac and body shots that mark the holiday in the USA. While we’re always game for some margaritas, Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage. So, we’re going to pay tribute in our own way, by celebrating the artisanal traditions that are the hallmarks of Mexican design. From talavera tiles to otomi fabrics, read through to see how Mexico’s vibrant culture translates

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, you’re probably already planning the perfect way to show some major love to your Momma. But if you’re feeling stuck, why not bring it back to where it all began: home. From the Mom with old school class to the one who’s always on top of the latest trends, we’ve got gifts that will make every mother smile. For the Eclectic Mom: Take your mother for a picnic in the park and then give her these melamine plates, perfect for outdoor entertaining and a great

When spring rolls around, you can always count on floral prints and pastels making their inexhaustible comeback. But if you’re looking for a more creative way to breathe spring life into your home, we’d opt for raffia, a natural material that’s been weaving its way into interiors everywhere. Produced from the fibers of palm trees, raffia has been used throughout history for everything from baskets to rugs, textiles to roofs of homes. Its durability and flexibility has since caught the eyes of fashion and home décor designers alike. Raffia’s tropical origins means that its often used to lend a coastal vibe

Interior designers are faced with challenges everyday. Whether working with small floor plans or strange color palettes, solving design dilemmas is just another part of the job. We recently called upon our talented designers to partake in a challenge that’s a little more fun than the average. For the first installment of our “Styled By” series, we asked designers to put their creative spin on coffee table styling using a simple, concrete table as the base. The only rules—let your imagination take charge! After receiving everything from minimally styled coffee
