We came across this interesting project that combined two lofts on the Bowery into one beautiful home, with 17 foot ceilings may I add. Stunning millwork throughout, with bleached alderwood in the kitchen and knotty pine throughout the living space, this home is filled with a sense of vastness and light. The Akari pendant helps to ground the open space and provides a soft contrast to all the wood and hard surfaces. We also love the playful use of beach towels for bath towels!

Not only do Nick and I run Eskayel together we are also married now and we had our dream wedding on the tiny island of Gili Meno off the coast of Lombok in Indonesia. We are so incredibly fortunate and so grateful to the local people of Gili Meno and Lombok for letting us celebrate our union there!

Javier Piñón is an artist – he is also married to Marah Hoffman – he has an exhibition at Pavel Zoubok gallery in NYC right now and I am obsessed with these pictures because I had a dream that I was swimming in the ocean during a mass starfish mating….it was very vivid.

Sight Unseen is an online design magazine that curates and sells handmade goods from emerging designers. They are some of our favorite taste makers around so it’s no wonder that we are in love with their new fall collection. With a playful ode to Memphis style this collection embraces both form and function. Tons of texture and a mostly muted palette makes it easy to incorporate any of these items into your home – or onto your body! Two of our favorite pieces include the ceramic Donut Mobile and the Cone Lamp from Josephine Heilpern of Recreation Center. Pictured below are a few of our other top picks but click here to view the full collection.
To see these beauties in person, be sure to check out Sight Unseen’s pop up shop on the ground floor of the Space Ninety 8 project space at 98 N. 6th St, Williamsburg until October 5th. We’ll see you there!

Established by Stephanie Beamer, Crystal Ellis and Hillary Petrie, New York based furniture company Egg Collective keeps things local by building all of their furniture in America, something we stand behind here at Eskayel. They create each piece by hand in order to keep their commitment to construct heirloom-quality contemporary furniture. And we are loving their 2014 collection!
The company maintains a studio and a wood shop in Brooklyn and works in collaboration with a small selection of artists, displaying their work along side Egg’s own designs. Studio visits are welcomed by appointment. Find out more about Egg Collective here.
