Derek spotted a 1950's hospitality cookbook at a vintage furniture store yesterday afternoon and snapped this picture. I love seeing where peoples' inspiration comes from! And how crazy is it that we happened upon both of these images in the same day?
Our good friends from Civil Twilight (the talented team who designed and built out our store) are up for a big award for their amazing Lunar Resonant Streetlights, and they need your vote! The INDEX:Awards are an international design competition based in Denmark, with a mission to "generate more Design to Improve Life of higher quality all over the world. " We are super psyched that they have made it to the final round of judging- fingers crossed that they win!
We were searching for a movie at the video store the other night, browsing the "new classics" section and hoping to find a '70s gem that we'd never heard of but would fast become one of our favorites. As soon as Derek picked up Two-Lane Blacktop and we recognized both Dennis Wilson and James Taylor on the cover, we knew we had a winner.
Two-Lane Blacktop the story of a cross-country car race, starring the kings of cool, James Taylor as "The Driver" and Dennis Wilson as "The Mechanic". First of all, seeing those two on screen, acting so effortlessly was amazing. Second, the story, the cinematography and the styling were incredible- and after we'd watched the entire film plus all the extras, we found out that Criterion issued their DVD version in 2007, so we're in for even more behind the scenes goodies when we decide to rent that one! I'm not going to give anything away- I'll just leave you with these photos and hopefully you'll check it out for yourself.
