With a lot of high school graduation parties this time of year, a lot of people are thinking about useful gifts for the grad. I found a very cool trunk at Factory Girl’s shop on etsy. The owner, Jessie Silver, opened the store in 2012 thanks to her passion for interior design. Factory Girl sells many unique pieces of furniture with fun colors. This trunk is so original with the lively color and the rounded feet. A dorm room could certainly use all of this storage and still be able to use it as a table. I can totally imagine a bunch of girlfriends sitting around this table with their laptops… or lattes. If I were still in school and studying for exams, I would find vibrant, creative furniture very inspiring! Actually, I’d still find this piece inspiring in my home. I don’t need to be a student for colorful inspiration!
When walking through campus from class to class, or class to mom’s house, or class to the gym, it would be nice to have one bag. I found a bag that could carry it all. This felt bag is very durable and is large enough to fit lots of items. It doesn’t look like an ordinary duffle bag. This one has style. Just because you might live out of a bag, doesn’t mean you have to look like it. I found this bag on Chanel lai’s etsy shop called Filzkraft. She works in Hong Kong and sells all items made from felt. The pieces are very clever. I love this bag… what a find!
