Sick Day

I have officially been sick for nine (9!!) days. It all began with a sore throat which I thought was just the common cold. This turned into puking, indigestion, the chills, and all of those physical, nasty symptoms one does not want. Just when the it seemed like the ailment was gone from my body, POOF my ears began to pop and ring! My hearing was affected, greatly diminished and as though I was under water. It felt like being perpetually stuck in the landing phase of the airplane ear pressure exercise, in the painful seconds before it pops.  Three doctors later, it seems as thought I have THREE (3!!) separate infections.

A bilateral middle ear infection (both ears), a sinus infection and possibly conjunctivitis. Three infections, in my face, simultaneously. With such an array of suffering, I felt like the bacteria deserved a post of its own…

Chairish Giveaway

Chairish should be your first click and one-stop-shop for all things vintage and pre-loved.  The site is an online consignment marketplace that makes it a breeze for design lovers to buy and sell pre-owned decor to one another.  The person-to-person shop features exclusively curator-approved treasures.

New York Chairish Collection from The Walkup

And for those fellow Manhattanites, Brooklynites and New York City area friends, Chairish even features the latest local finds from nearby sellers for convenient pickup.

Job changes, moves, renovations, style changes – there are many people who have exquisite home furnishings to sell that are perfectly lovely, but just don’t work in their homes aesthetic anymore. Until now, we thought our consignment shopping was pretty much relegated to clothing (vintage Ferragamo capes, anyone?) and accessories. Enter Chairish.

Chairish and The Walkup inspired by Moonrise Kingdom Set Still by Wes AndersonThe Walkup’s collection at Chairish is inspired by set stills from Moonrise Kingdom by Wes Anderson. Plaid stairs, a rose patterned rug, a french horn case, striped sofa and midcentury meets Victorian details. 

Ever love a chair so much that you’ve come to cherish it? Chairish’s mission is to make the world more beautiful, one room at a time and to help design aficionados to save people money in the process.  Who doesn’t love  a good pun concept?
