Love the throwback look of barn lights, or those metal industrial-style farmhouse pendants? If you're looking for a go-to resource for these kinds of lights for your kitchen or dining room, Barn Light Electric is a dream.
If you've grown tired of run-of-the mill cookie cutter shapes — the star, the heart, the Christmas tree — then you're going to love Printmeneer. This small Dutch company makes the coolest cookie cutter shapes: diamonds, clouds, mountain range profiles, pig cuts, penguins, even a Herschel graph! And they're all made using a 3D printer.
Enclume has been making metal pot racks for the last four decades out of their factory in Port Hadlock, Washington. You won't find cheap materials or flimsy construction here; rather, every Enclume cookware rack starts with super high quality hot-rolled steel and requires over 60 handling steps to complete. An Enclume rack "represents the efforts of skilled humans, not machines," as they like to say.
If you followed along with Faith's kitchen renovation, you already know about Semihandmade, the LA-based company that makes custom fronts to fit IKEA kitchens.

The store also carries its own line of tools and ingredients, designed by founders Don Lee and Greg Boehm:
I first heard of woodworker/DIY'er extraordinaire Ariele Alasko when her super cool salvaged headboards showed up in my Pinterest feed. After exploring her site, Brooklyn to West, I discovered she also makes salvaged wood dining tables in her signature graphic, mix-and-match style. I think they're stunning, don't you? A little worn and rustic, but completely eye-catching.
You may not think you know Normann Copenhagen, but chances are you'd recognize a few of their classic pieces. (Remember this peeler? Or this tea egg? Or these fun beater whisks?) Fans of modern design also know that you can find Normann Copenhagen pieces at stores like Horne, Huset, and The Modern Shop, but the brand has its own online webshop as well where you can peruse and purchase the full beautiful line.
The price of silver keeps rising. What's a southern girl to do if her pattern will never be completed? Go to eBay, of course. Sterling looks better with age, like you've had it for a while and you know how to use it. But the prices on eBay aren't really any better than anywhere else... unless you aren't afraid of monograms.
