From classic midcentury modern pieces like the Womb Chair, designed by Eero Saarinen for Knoll and featured in this week’s Down the Rabbit Hole with Arthur Erickson to lemony kitchen cloths inspired by the Oscar de la Renta dress that Dr. Jill and Meghan Markle both recently wore – these are the products on my mind.

After enjoying the photos from Coca Cola’s debut in France in the Clearing the Cache post this week, I stumbled upon a Coca Cola advertisement from the late 1950s featuring Santa Claus resting in a Womb Chair! There is nothing like a cold Coke in a glass bottle. Buy them locally at Campbell’s Market Basket in downtown East Lansing.
