Right now we want Sue and Mat Daly’s handmade pendulum clocks and more.
Time Out Chicago’s must-haves of the moment include the Robie House LEGO model, Threadless + Scout notebooks and more.
It’s out with the new and in with the old thanks to Sue and Mat Daly’s handmade pendulum clocks featuring adorable log cabins and forest animals. $150 at Renegade Handmade (1924 W Division St, 773-227-2707).
Our love of LEGO sets just became legit for design-minded adults. The recently released Robie House LEGO model by Chicagoland artist Adam Reed Tucker comes with more than 2,000 pieces, plus a history booklet to help you brush up on Prairie-style architecture. $199 at shopwright.org.
Plain notebooks are fine, but we also appreciate journals with a little design on them. That’s why we’re excited about this new line of notebooks from Threadless and Scout. The pocket-sized books feature popular Threadless designs and are made with recycled paper and printed with vegetable ink. $9 for a pack of three at threadless.com.
We like the idea of using plates as wall art, but this Altered Perspectives by Little Owl piece takes that design idea to the next level. Each collection of plates in the series features bits and pieces of a painting. The juxtaposition of the paintings on fine china will make a statement on any wall. Start saving your pennies now. Starting at $623 at littleowl.eu.
