Majestic II Customizable Range from ILVE
For more than 60 years, ILVE (il-vay) has been handcrafting luxury appliances from its home base just outside of Venice, Italy. We love this 60-inch Majestic II Range for its eye-catching grey-blue hue and copper trim. It’s sure to be the focal point of the kitchen while providing the ultimate cooking experience. It features nine sealed burners, two ovens, a fast pre-heat conventional oven, a child-safe door, a large European convection oven that expedites baking, and a full-width warming drawer. Depending on the chef’s tastes and culinary needs, ILVE makes ranges with custom touches and in a variety of colors and styles, including the Nostalgie line that features a timeless look and deep, rich color options, and the Professional Plus series, which offers a sleek, modern style.

Vintage Gas Pump from Man Cave Collectibles
The Art Factory in Scottsdale, Arizona, is known for designing high-quality architectural embellishments and custom furnishings, and the foundation of the business is based on the belief that the craftsmanship and artistry of heirloom pieces can help connect families to their ancestral histories. It’s in this spirit that the Art Factory developed their Man Cave series, which offers restored Americana-style signs and memorabilia. We love this vintage gas pump, which has been refurbished to museum-quality standards, for adding a classic pop of color and retro appeal. It’s one of hundreds that have been restored to historically correct, original specifications.

Eternal San Miguel de Allende written by Ted Davis
For years, Americans have traveled to explore the beauty of San Miguel de Allende, a quaint, charming, and culturally-rich community in Guanajuato, Mexico. This Spanish Colonial city has been touted in many travel publications and was described as one of the most beautiful and enchanting locations in the world by Condé Nast Traveler. The architecture of the commercial buildings, churches, and the city’s epic opera house is akin to that of a European village. This new book by Ted Davis, Eternal San Miguel de Allende: Celebrating the Hidden Treasures of a Timeless Town, is a tribute to this beautiful place, revealing in more than 300 photographs the cultural heritage and hidden gems of San Miguel.

Pueblo Pottery Mugs from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center
In January 2015, five Pueblo potters — Erik Fender (San Ildefonso), Elizabeth Medina (Zia), Frederica Antonio (Acoma), Patricia Lowden (Acoma), and Robin Teller (Isleta) — were commissioned to commemorate the opening of the first Native American-owned Starbucks by crafting clay travel mugs to be exhibited in the store in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They were so well received that ceramic versions bearing the original designs were put into production, and a second and third series were later commissioned. The goal is to eventually have potters from each Pueblo design a mug that represents their community and heritage. The artists receive royalties for each mug sold, with proceeds also supporting the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, which is dedicated to the history, art, and culture of the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico.

Artisan Lamps by Kinzig Design
Susan Kinzig was an established jewelry designer before she and her business-minded sister-in-law, Caryn Kinzig, joined forces to create these one-of-a-kind, handcrafted lamps. Susan works closely with glass artisans to produce the bases of each lamp from her studio in San Francisco, while Caryn focuses on the shades, searching the world for the finest embroidered silks, velvets, and other embellishments. We love the resulting combination, as each one takes on its own sensuous shape, styling, and color. By the nature of the materials they use, no two lamps are exactly the same.
