Here’s a not-so secret: none of us wants our homes to be boring. We might—some of us—aspire to simplicity, or neatness, or perfectly curated tea collections, but we don’t want our homes to look exactly like someone else’s. Still, given an endless bombardment of products produced in quantities that would outfit every household in your average small town with identical housewares, it can be hard to find your own voice. Happily, there are badass retailers helping in the noble pursuit of creative flair.
Enter Of a Kind. Founded by Erica Cerulo and Claire Mazur, Of a Kind is one of my very favorite places to direct folks who are looking for gifts that both inspire and celebrate individuality. The concept behind the brand is simple: limited-edition runs of beautiful home goods, clothing, and jewelry produced in small batches by emerging designers.
Adding a special je ne sais quoi to my own humble space in these photos are the Tactic Dot Pillow by Archive New York and the Playing Field Candlesticks and Tray by Good Thing, both currently available at Of a Kind. But more important, both are part of a special giveaway for three of you.
Propped on top of a wooden crate, the Playing Field Tray becomes a veritable side table in my tiny apartment.
Nestled among neutrals, the Tactic Dot Pillow provides a dose of good cheer. And strewn with bonbons of the chocolate-covered pretzel and coconut-caramel popcorn variety, the whole kit and kaboodle becomes the perfect scene for your favorite (and mine) Saturday afternoon pastime: Snoozin’ and treats.If you have a hankering to spruce up your own space, or give something special to someone else, now’s your chance. Of a Kind is offering three Reading My Tea Leaves readers a chance to take home these gifts. They might be just what you need for entertaining guests. Or yourself. Serving caramel popcorn not required, just recommended.
