Fresh from my move to a cute (a.k.a. tiny ) studio apartment, I’m still adding personal touches and slowly adjusting to a somewhat drastic downsize of floor space (from 900 down to 330 square feet.) That's my new bedroom/living room/office above. Really refreshing though. Living with less means living toward a well-edited life where I’m surrounded by what matters most to me.
In the world of decor, that means placing objects in your space that you love, bring you joy and mean something to you. That’s why I’m excited to welcome in my new space a few beautiful items from a very special company with an impressive collection of artisan gifts, all under a socially and environmentally conscious business model - UncommonGoods.
Why They are Special
Visit the UncommonGoods online shop, and you’ll begin to see why. Yet behind the eye-catching craft, style, and sense of whimsy, there is the integrity of design with the environment and people in mind. Headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, they make it their mission to support artists and designers creating handcrafted gifts and unique designs. About a third of their collections uses recycled or upcycled materials without harm to animals or people. Most are made in the US. They also support several non-profits such as Women for Women International and American Forests. Plus with every purchase you make, they will donate $1 to the non-profit of your choice.
