Add a big pop to your coffee table with the porcelain Sarah Kaye Striped Large Bowl ($125 at sarahkaye.net), slip-cast and fired in Seattle by Kaye. A unique glaze and free-form shape create a stylish statement piece, indeed.
Designed, screen-printed and sewn in London Tierney and Christian Perry’s Pioneer Square studio, the Such Sweet Tierney Peach Arches Kitchen Towel ($20 at suchsweettierneyshop.com) is just the thing to liven up a modern kitchen.
The hot-pad gets an upgrade with the elegant Fruitsuper Design Brass Lift Trivet ($48 at fruitsuperdesign.com), designed in Seattle from uncoated solid brass to age to a rich patina.
Create a living space that’s farmhouse-chic with the Urban Hardwoods Maple Side Table ($895 at urbanhardwoods.com), made from a tree salvaged in Gig Harbor. Handcrafted in its Sodo workshop, the company’s nature-inspired pieces are one of a kind and truly unique.
The classic indigo hues of the hand-dyed, hand-sewn Aurum Goods Shibori Pillow ($85 at Glasswing, Capitol Hill) will add sophistication to your space. The new Seattle company makes the one-of-a-kind pieces with super-soft Pendleton wool and natural dyes.
Seattle ceramist Jill Rosenast’s vessels ($65 each at Niche Outside, Capitol Hill) show the perfection in inconsistency. The pieces can hold votives, air plants or stand on their own, and have tiny glam touches of gold on the edges.
Fill your home with the sweet scent of snickerdoodles with the Whiskey Wicks Grandma’s Cookies Wood Wick Candle ($20 at Butter Home, Capitol Hill). Handcrafted in small batches, the Seattle company’s candles are made to burn slowly with crackling wood wicks.
Sure, the Andrea Ramsay Portable Beach Chair ($160 at andrearamsay.com) is made for the beach, but it sits pretty just about anywhere. Each chair is designed and handcrafted by Ramsay at her shop at Seattle’s Equinox Studios in Georgetown.
Freeman’s Junction Parka ($375, out soon at Freeman, Capitol Hill) is the latest creation from the Seattle company known for its functional and stylish rain jackets. Available in dijon and navy, it’s perfect for the cold, wet days just around the corner.
Look chic year-round in Seattle designer Lu.’s Dress No.1 in Chambray Union ($230 at Velouria, Pioneer Square). The loose-fit tunic is made from a soft chambray cotton and has two front apron pockets.
With the same dimensions of a paper grocery bag, the Ballard-made Ferdinand Lady Prosperity Bag ($353 at Velouria) is highly practical. But it’s also supremely stylish, cut from a raw, vegetable-tanned leather that will patina perfectly with age.
Pay homage to the iconic Seattle-founded brewery and former minor-league baseball team with the Ebbets Field Flannels Seattle Rainiers 1955 Vintage Ballcap ($45 at Ebbets Field Flannels, Sodo). The Seattle-based company specializes in hip and historical jerseys, caps and jackets made with vintage fabrics.
Classic hoop earrings get a twist with the new Baleen Dipped Hoops ($48, out soon at Baleen, Ballard), by Seattle-based jewelry designers Leah Lawrence and Billy Bartels. The perfectly sized 2.5-inch gold-filled earrings have a partially powder-coated finish to give them a luxe dipped look.
For a quick pick-me-up for dry, chapped lips, try the Kari Gran Tinted Lip Whip in Peppermint ($16 at karigran.com). The Seattle-based organic skin-care line’s balm contains organic beeswax, sunflower oil and camellia seed oil for moisture with a hint of shine.
Indulge in the fragrant Maria Christofilis Fleur09 Spray ($38–$270 at mariachristofilis.com), with notes of mandarin, bergamot and orange flower. A spritz of this citrus-and-floral combo, created by Seattle perfumer Christofilis, leaves a long-lasting and luxurious scent.
For a radiant complexion year-round, give your skin a boost with Susan Grace’s Partly Sunny Toner ($29 at susangraceskincare.com). Specially developed for Northwest skin by Seattle esthetician Grace, it provides that hard-to-come-by Vitamin D in every application.
