Things We Love: February Edition

If January is synonymous with new beginnings, February is all about romance. Valentine’s Day invites us to think beyond our packed schedules and, instead, prioritize the ones we love. It also invites us to indulge our senses — whether it’s with a decadent box of fine chocolates, an evening out at a gorgeous restaurant, a spritz of our favorite lavish perfume, or in the colors of an elegant bouquet. When you think of it that way, shouldn’t Valentine’s Day last all month? We think so. Here are the favorite ways we’re treating ourselves throughout the month of February. Plus check out 3 of our favorite designers picks: Barclay Butera, Jaime Walters, and Catherine Davin.

Compartés Chocolate Truffles

The Los Angeles-based chocolatier has become a favorite for its refreshingly modern aesthetic and inventive flavor combinations. We’re particular fans of the rosé chocolate truffles, but you really can’t go wrong with any of the exquisite confections here.

Moroso Soft Heart Rocking Chair

This whimsical rocker couldn’t be more perfect for February — but during the rest of the year, it feels like a great (and functional) piece of Pop Art.

Flora Bar at the Met Breuer, NYC

Museum restaurants used to be a bit staid — but this wine bar is ushering in a new generation of design-conscious cafes, bars, and eateries in cultural landmarks. Come for the Brutalist architecture, stay for the thoughtful menu by Ignacio Mattos.

Alicia Gitlitz Paintings

When you look at one of Alicia Gitliz’s stunning abstract works, you’ll always find a new detail to enjoy. For us, though, it’s all about her exceptional use of color, like in her work “Above The Crowd”.

Sugarfina Champagne Bears

Raise a glass in a unique way with these charming pink and golden bears that are flavored with Dom Pérignon Vintage Champagne.

Jonathan Adler Ultra Bar Cart

Prefer to raise your spirits with a cocktail? This cart is a must. The design represents an intriguing departure from Adler’s ’60s sensibility, channeling the Art Deco inspirations and shining finishes of the glamorous ’80s (yes, that decade is making a comeback).

Modernica Cloud Couch

Sleek yet fluid lines and a rich red hue give this sofa a bold presence in any space. It’s an ideal piece for open floor plans, where the unusual shape will make the maximum impact.
