Bee Raw

You’ve enjoyed a good single malt, so why not indulge in Bee Raw Honey, sourced from raw, unfiltered honey made from a single flower variety. 
The honey really tastes like its floral origin; try cranberry, orange blossom, sage, star thistle, sweet yellow clover, wild raspberry and buckwheat!

We suggest the buckwheat honey from Washington State and sweet yellow clover from Colorado.

Bee Raw Honey, $12.00, at World Pantry

Fjord Explorer

Like a deep cut in the landscape, the Fjord chair collection from Moroso adds a bit of drama to the home or office (there is even a variation for waiting rooms). We especially like the swiveling leather armchair and the tulip like bar chairs.

Books: Julius Shulman Photographer of Modernism

More photographs uncovered from the Julius Shulman archive. Tashen pays tribute to residential and commercial buildings that had slipped from public view in this three volume set.

A resident of Los Angeles since 1920, Julius Shulman has been documenting modernist architecture in Southern California and across the globe for nearly eight decades. His images of Pierre Koenig’s Case Study House No. 22 (1960) in Los Angeles and Richard J. Neutra’s Kaufmann House (1947) in Palm Springs are among the most recognizable and iconic architectural photographs of the 20th century.

Globalight Champagne Holder

It’s pink, it’s shiny — Karim Rashid has turned a sketch into a living product for Veuve Clicquot. The handle detail is impressive, well balanced, we would be happy to carry this around the pool; the holder doubles as a cooler.
