Over on our sister Instagram account we share lots of modern design that’s affordable, accessible, and all around awesome to have in your life. While we will occasionally share a splurge-worthy investment, we try to find items that you won’t feel guilty buying because most of the time, they support original designs by independent artists, makers and designers! We believe beautiful design should be inclusive of all budgets, so without further ado, here are 10 of the most liked and most talked about items we’ve shared on this year.
Your furriest family member deserves the best sleep for all the unconditional love they give, and this dog bed is extra cozy – !

Enough said. Every creative should get this tote.
This mid-century modern-inspired dog house is one of the splurge-worthy purchases we were talking about and let’s face it, those cuddly faces are worth it, don’t you think?

Of course, you don’t need to shell out thousands to show your pup you care. These dog beds were also a favorite this year because they’re so much more stylish than any dog beds you could find in regular pet stores. Plus, they support local artisans who receive a commission on the retail price of the basket, on top of what they are originally compensated. A full circle win-win!
For the friend who can’t live without their La Croix, this handmade and hand-painted cement planter was made for them.
