A.P.C. Quilts

These quilts speak for themselves.


Cloth of the Sun

Now that the holidays are over and you're banishing the tasty decadence of the season, we recommend heading back into your own kitchen.  These dish towels will brighten up any rack or oven.  (Maybe it's time for a little gift to yourself).

Les Toiles du Soleil has been making this beautiful cloth for 150 years from the French Catalonian town of Saint Laurent de Cerdans. Although it has switched hands and families a few times over the last century, the latest incarnation brings us the most fantastic colors around. Think of a rough hewn Paul Smith stripe in durable thick cotton weave.


Take Back The Wall

While we just moved into a lush new HQ on Howard Street, wall space is still at a premium.  As we sit and wait for the heated arguments about decoration to subside, we'll turn the walls into our planning ground.  World domination never looked easier than when the entire wall becomes the map.

IdeaPaint takes your plain white walls and transforms them into the dry-erase battleground for corporate tactical intrigue.  One Gallon covers 50 sq ft.

We're sold. Now where's the paint-on roof deck?

A Phone for Us

A breath of fresh air in the world of internet telephony.   Hulger brings us the Pappa Phone. This beauty is hand-crafted from walnut with brass details.  A steampunk dream that would spruce up any desk or laptop station.


Diehl Fans

As we celebrate the last few weeks of summer and reflect on the seductively oppressive heat, the humidity which inspires revealing fashions, and the glamour of a tom collins in a sweating highball, on rattan table top, on a porch lined with grand ferns; it is the  glorious ceiling fan twisting slowly overhead, the catches our attention.  


Gothic Glow

It's time to head back to the lab with these clever lights from Gothic Glow.  With steampunk all the rage, you'll be able to accessorize with a subtle nod to Artemus Gordon.

The Wolseley


Alas, we haven't had the opportunity to visit in person, but if the cake stand alone is any indication, it is not to be missed.

"The Wolseley was created by Chris Corbin and Jeremy King in 2003 in the style of the Grand Café normally only found on the Continent. The original building was commissioned in 1921 by Wolseley Cars as their West End showroom and was designed by William Curtis Green in the Art Deco style of the time. In keeping with the Grand Cafe tradtion and to match the opulence of the interior, a range of equipment inspired by the era was sourced, some antique and others bespoke."

The Wolseley has started a web store to sell selections of their exceedingly popular table and glassware. The Black & White Cake Stand with Cloche is £165.00.
