Loving: ioLine Crib

I love the rich bamboo in this ioLine Crib from Kalon Studio at Fawn and Forest.  It's just a natural wood tone, but not one that you normally see in cribs.  And the detailing around the top is really beautiful.

Loving: Wobble Chess Set

This Chess Set from Graham and Green combines the thrill of chess with the wobbly suspense of Weebles.  Plus, I really like how the shapes have been smoothed down and simplified from the usual figures.

Sitting at: Wave Desk

I love the simplicity of this Wave Desk from Offi at Feel More Human.  And the rounded edge would make it really comfortable when you end up sitting and typing at it for long stretches of time.

Loving: Century Clock

This Century Clock from Exclusively Home is great.  It's really simple, no background or fancy minute hands, just the numbers and two plain hands.  Of course the crazy sizing of the numbers might make it a little hard to read, but it's cool enough that you could hang it and just check your watch for the correct time.

Loving: Paper Clip Wall Sculpture

How great would this Paper Clip wall sculpture from Chiasso be in an office.  It's really funny, but pretty awesome too.

Loving: Crawling Critters Mobile

I love the happy little bugs on this Crawling Critters Mobile from Feel More Human.  They're so friendly looking, but so different from the normal happy teddy bears or jungle animals.

Loving: Manhattan Chest of Drawers

This Manhattan Chest of Drawers from Graham and Green is completely different from just about all other furniture.  I think that all the mirrors make it less heavy and helps it blend into a room better.  And you could always check out your shoes before heading out.

Loving: Pablo Umbrella Lamp

This Umbrella Lamp from Design Public is really wonky.  It would be really fun to just insert it into a normal living room for a fun vibe and to watch all your guests give it strange looks when they first see it.

Loving: MOBOS Modular Storage Bins

I love the fun shapes and colors of these MOBOS Modular Storage Bins from Exclusively Home.  I could think of a bunch of places in my apartment where these could be great.  I could put a couple in my sewing area to hold all my odds and ends, one on either side of the bed to hold whatever books my husband and I are reading, and a couple in the baby's room to store all of his toys.

Sitting on: Uno Home Office Chair

I love how different the metal frame is on this Uno Home Office Chair from Smart Furniture.  It looks more vintage than new, and the mustard yellow color is really hard to pass up.

Loving: Dreamlets

I am such a sucker for wacky stuffed animals, and these Dreamlets from Exclusively Home are a little wierd but really cute.  They're all handmade out of cuddly fleece, and they look like they just want a hug.

Loving: Forest Silhouette Collection

The Forest Silhouette Collection from Roost at Velocity is absolutely beautiful.  I love how the cylinders are not quite perfectly straight and the eerie way the tree would flicker in the votive and hurricane lamps.

Loving: Owl iPod/iPhone Case

So my wonderful husband recently bought me an iPod Touch to replace my old Nano, and I really don't want the new screen to end up as scratched as the old one.  So this adorable Owl iPod/iPhone Case from EvelynX's Etsy shop would be perfect if I can ever manage to steal the Ipod away from my husband.

Loving: Saito Wood Square Wastebasket

So a wastebasket isn't necessarily the most exciting part of a room, but that's probably because most of them out there aren't that great.  This Saito Wood Square Wastebasket from Emmo Home is completely different.  It's just a plain boxy shape, but since the hole is only half the top, you wouldn't see the trash until it gets really full.

Sitting on: HutJ Camila Rocker

I love the shape of this HutJ Camila Rocker from Matthew Kroeker at Design Public.  It's really wide and low to the ground, so it looks like you could just curl up in it and rock yourself to sleep.  Plus, it comes in some really awesome colors.
