Best of 2016: Editors’ Faves

This might be the hardest task we editors do all year long because we generally really love what we publish! That said, Jaime, Gregory, and I did our best to pull just three of our favorites (some of us, >>JAIME<<, just couldn’t narrow it down!), many of which didn’t make it into the end-of-the-year or top 10 best posts. Take a look back as we revisit them now.

Best of 2016: Editors’ Faves

Jaime’s Faves

It was too hard for me to pick just three so here is a mix of stuff I did that I loved doing, and posts I loved:

This 112-Year-Old Company Is Making Enormous Tables for Apple Campus 2 (above)
I appreciated hearing the story behind these massive tables!


Pablo’s UMA Sound Lantern: A Visual Journey
It was such an honor to create this labor of love video for Pablo for their UMA Sound Lantern.


A Lighting Collection With Endless Combinations
I absolutely love the possibilities of this lamp, and I enjoy the Scandinavian-meets-Memphis design.


You Say Dutch, We Say Design!
I had a blast curating IDS Vancouver’s Dutch Exchange—what a talented group of designers. More here.


Design Milk Curates The Milk Stand Popup Shop at ICFF 2016
Meet The Milk Stand 2016
The Milk Stand was such a success this past year and I felt very lucky to be working with so many incredible people.

Favorite interiors:


Work: Masquespacio’s Own Design Studio — dream office


Home: A Weapons Factory in Budapest Becomes a Home — dream home

And here are a few I loved because of their “cool factor”:


Making Weather Adds Atmospheric Atmosphere


Driftscape: Traveling Untethered

Caroline’s Faves


A Renewed Classic Eichler by Klopf Architecture
Eichler homes are housing perfection to me and when someone, like the architects at Klopf, lovingly restore and renovate them it makes my heart even happier.

Audi Connected Mobility Bumper

Audi Connected Mobility Concept Car Hides an Electric Longboard In Its Bumper
This combines my love of Audi cars with my love of skateboarding, so it’s like an answer to all my design fantasies.



The Coolest Modern RVs, Trailers and Campers
I’ve wanted an EarthRoamer for about 10 years and I’m keeping that dream alive until it happens! There’s something about the idea of being able to hop in a vehicle and just driving to any destination knowing you have somewhere comfortable to sleep that night.

Gregory’s Faves


Pablo’s UMA Sound Lantern: A Visual Journey
Biased, since I participated in small part, and the video came out beautifully!


Dusen Dusen Designs Modular, Magnetic Wallcoverings for Visual Magnetics
After interviewing Ellen for the Microsoft Surface post, I’ve become a big fan of the designer and the human being (lovely person).


Design Milk Travels to… Hong Kong
Made me want to return for another visit and representative of our new travel channel.
