I previously mentioned that I'm basically a cheapskate with a fondness for the utilitarian, so my latest purchase fits the bill perfectly: the Sugar & Creamer w/ Tray by Åsa Lindberg Svensson. Not only is it exquisitely designed, but it's super affordable at a measly $30. And even more amazing (for me at least) is that I bought it just twenty minutes from my house right here in The Catskills (yes, where Dirty Dancing was filmed). My choices are rather limited living up here in the mountains, so I was thrilled to discover Scandinavian Grace: 4500 square feet of minimalist chic Danish modern goodness so close to home. Owners Frederik Larsson and James Anthony make a point to stock the classics (Iittala, Orrefors, Marimekko, Tonfisk, Asplund, and Stelton) plus new additions from All In Wood, G.A.D. and Carl Hansen & Son as well as vintage mid century furnishings imported by Copenhagen Vintage.
Clean lines and natural materials make The Rural Modernist tingly down there.
Belly up to the bar for a bowl of leek soup and a good blab session with Fred.
I really want these chairs.
Next time you're in the Woodstock area, skip the faux hippy crap and shop here instead.
