Shop the Look

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.

You can learn more about the origin of the womb chair here.

Buy additional kitchen cloths here and here as well as dish towels here and here. These are a great way to break the paper towel habit!

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.

One of the ways that readers can support the work involved in hosting this blog (and others!) is through affiliate marketing. To that end, I have started a bookshop account – it’s a way to shop for books online that have been curated by me and fulfilled by small bookstores from around the country. Please check it out and let me know if you have suggestions of what you would like to see.

We also now have a new dedicated email address for the blog: realhousesofeastlansing [at] gmail [dot] com — written out this way to prevent spam.
