Modern Beanbags for Luxury Floor Seating

Sitting on or nearer to the floor will help you bring grounding energy to your body and your environment.

Beanbag chairs are a way to enjoy the luxurious, lounging element of floor seating, while still enjoying some support to the spine. In a beanbag chair, you are allowing some additional extension to your lower body by having less strain on the psoas muscle, therefore helping to maintain a higher level of circulation in a seated position.

“Floor culture” has been widespread across Asia for centuries. In Korea, sitting on the floor was a way to stay warmer due to the ondol, or underfloor heating systems. In India, sitting on the floor while eating is part of the Ayurvedic lifestyle, aiding in digestion, circulation, and portion control.  In Japan, there is at least one room of the house with washitsu, a traditional style room that is adorned only with woven tatami mats across the floor, a simple low table, and some floor cushions. In modern times, we enjoy floor seating as a means to feel more cozy and comfortable in our own homes, and when welcoming guests. With an array of contemporary designs to choose from, one can maintain a modern look in their home, while still offering a relaxed and inviting aesthetic.

We hope you enjoy some of our favorite modern beanbag chair selections!

Wanderlust Destination: Chandigarh, India

Chandigarh, India is a time capsule of Mid-Century Modern architecture nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas.

In 2016, the Capitol Complex in Chandigarh was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, making these incredible modern buildings an unmissable wonder. In Chandigarh, India, you won’t find an ancient city, or any British colonial buildings. Chandigarh was one of India’s first planned cities, created by the Chandigarh Capital Project Team, and led by Swiss architect, Charles Edouard Corbusier (Le Corbusier). As a marvelous result, Chandigarh is a urban zone that feels both futuristic and retro.  The flawless geometrical outline mirrors the engineering virtuoso of the organizers of the city, Albert Mayer and Mathew Novicki. Chandigarh is a vacation destination with a modern business focus.

In India, most of the cities are planned and created solely for automobiles, so a sidewalk is an immense luxury. In Chandigarh, there are plentiful pedestrian walkways where you may safely stroll, a perfect means to pleasantly meander local streets by foot. Take a quick walk with us through this modernist haven!

Wanderlust Destination: Marfa, Texas

In the vast and mystical Chihuahuan desert, Marfa, Texas is an oasis of alluring mystery and transcendental experience.

Located between the Davis Mountains and Big Bend National Park, Marfa was originally founded as a railroad water stop. Now one of the minimalist art and design meccas of the nation, Marfa attracts creatives and adventurers from far and wide.

During the 1920s, the community in Marfa began to grow. By the 1950s, it was nationally famous for its mysterious Ghost Lights. The source of the Fata Mortgana has long been rumored to be anything from UFOs, to wandering spirits. This mysterious phenomena has also been attributed to atmospheric reflections of campfires and headlights, although the first recorded sighting was in 1883, before automobiles were on the market. In modern times, atmospheric scientists hypothesize that the lights are a sort of mirage caused by sharp temperature gradients between cold and warm layers of air.

Marfa Army Airfield was the training grounds for several thousand pilots during World War II. In the 1970s, the army base lands were bought by Donald Judd, an acclaimed visual artist from New York City.  In 1979, Judd began transforming the fort’s buildings into art spaces with a vision to house large collections of individual artists’ work on permanent display. Though Judd birthed the contemporary art movement in Marfa, when he died in 1994, Marfa quite literally became a ghost town.  Tumbleweeds the size of shopping carts could be seen blowing down the road, and storefronts were completely baron and overlaid with dust. In the early 2000s, Marfa was resurrected, and thus began a kind of renaissance. Artists and Artisans opened new galleries and chic hotels, and the Texas government decided to make a roadside viewing post for the Marfa Mystery Lights.

Today in Marfa, you can expect to find modern art galleries, bohemian boutique hotels and restaurants, eclectic campgrounds, funky bars, and far-out festivals with the ever-ethereal backdrops of reverent desert tones. Take a dive with us through the dreamy high desert..

Inside a Lady’s Handbag

A lady’s purse is her mysterious source of power, and one could never presume to guess the contents.

A common assumption would be that a woman’s purse only contains cosmetics, but I tend to keep an array of items that will keep me prepared for any number of adventures! Here are some of the items you will often find in my handbag on any given day!

 

Therapeutic Oils

Young Living Breathe Again is a pure distilled essential oil blend containing four types of Eucalyptus oils, Rose Hip oil, Peppermint oil, Blue Cypress oil, Copaiba oil, and Myrtle oil. You may roll the oil on your face, neck, and chest, or simply hold beneath your nose and inhale. Not only does the blissful aroma leave you feeling clear and refreshed, it has immense medicinal effects, supporting respiratory health and lung function. This oil blend is a must-have if you live in an area with allergens like mold or pollen are prominent.

Chlorophyll is an antioxidant superfood that fights cancer, improves liver detoxification, speeds up wound healing, improves digestion and weight control, and maintains healthy complexion! This yummy chewable supplement will keep you looking and feeling great, and is wonderful to have on hand if you find yourself often eating exotic cuisine.

Adventure Binoculars

My Bushnell Legacy Binoculars are basically my best friend. I don’t often leave home without them. If you’re a bird lady like me, or simply enjoying site-seeing, you should consider keeping a pair of travel size binoculars in your handbag! If you can’t always bring your camera along, holding your mobile phone lens up to the lens of the binoculars will do a fine job of capturing far off wonders!

Tinted Moisturizing Sunscreen

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30 is essential to my daily beauty routine if I find myself out and about under the sun. I often wear a sun hat, but this amazing lightweight cream will protect the delicate skin on your face, and give it a warm glow! I find that most sunscreens clog the pores on my face making me breakout if left on my skin for several hours. That makes it quite difficult to choose between protecting my skin from harmful UV rays, or keeping my skin free and clear of oils and chemicals that will cause blemishes. This NARS product is very mild, and has had no adverse effects on my face so far!

This extra long, braided rope iPhone charger is really a life saver. When working remotely from a cafe, you can’t always find a seat located close to a power outlet. Additionally, in most bedrooms, you will often find the position of the bed is not conveniently located in relation to a power source. Having the extra long, durable cable gives you freedom and flexibility to keep your mobile device nearby while charging.

Stunning Southern Style Homes

In classical and modern Southern design and architecture, we often see sweeping white surfaces for a cooling effect, tall columns lining long covered porches, lush landscapes with lots of shade, and plentiful lounge areas to relax with shelter from the heat.

The style in the South is about making you feel cool, fresh, and comfortable. It’s important for a home to be situated amongst tall trees, often flowering trees like Magnolias, that provide a lot of shade to keep the interior of the house away from the intense heat of the Southern sun.

Patios, porches, verandas, and sunrooms are key features in Southern homes. They are where the majority of downtime is spent reading or resting, and where you entertain guests for coffee, tea, or apéritifs. We often see large porch swings with an array of cushions, wide wicker chairs, rocking chairs, and cushioned reclining chairs. Lighting is kept soft and ambient, often still incorporating gas lamps and candlelight.

Interiors range from simplistic and modern, to lavishly extravagant. Take a look at some of these selections of Southern homes and soak up their charm!

Incorporating the Pantone Color of the Year into Your Life

“We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination. It is this kind of creative inspiration that is indigenous to PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level. From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy, to artistic expression and spiritual reflection, intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come. ” 

-Leatrice Eisman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute

 A shade so richly cosmic, one could hardly believe that Ultra Violet occurs organically in nature. This deeply dramatic hue conveys royalty, and pairs well with any other color. When the color catches our eye we are inspired towards originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking. From sweeping landscapes of lavender fields or high climbing vines of wisteria, caverns of amethyst, to the color embodiment of the crown chakra, this regal shade will invoke a higher vibration and reverence for all life.

“Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.”

“Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection.”
