Some new Oeuf and Apple Park in the house. We are mad about these adorable layette pieces by Oeuf NYC! Pima cotton makes them oh-so-soft while the simple design is so sweet. The Apple Park rattles and extras are the icing on the carrot cake!
Last weekend we hit this amazing large scale art installation by Kara Walker, best known for her silhouette art, and had to share. It smells as sweet as sugar and is as impressive as it is a moving commentary on race. You do have to sign a release to go in and the queue can be a bit long (but moves fast and there are italian ices to keep things cool) — but you will certainly be taken by the message behind the art, the scale, as well as bold shapes and confections used that interact with the environment, melting and morphing daily until July 6 when it closes.
After that the well positioned Sugar Factory is said to be demolished to make way for condos.

As the Sotheby’s Warhol auction is today, we are all about Andy! Although we don’t have the millions needed for his series 6 self portraits (that is 25,0000,000-35,000,000), we do feel lucky to be surrounded by his pop art phenoms articulated in everyday objects and fun toys for kids. The current fave: our artful limited edition “Banana” Bugaboo Cameleon stroller now sitting in a cool lit circle in the front of Babesta Cribz, our new go-to spot for the fly-est of wheels.
