Either you have to make your way down to a florist, hope they have a great selection, then pay an additional charge for delivery, <em>or</em>&nbsp; you can order from a generic website where you never can be sure about the quality. Hoping to make the flower buying experience easier and more transparent, Whitney Port and her business partner Laurenne Resnik decided to change up the process with <a href="http://www.bloom2bloom.com/">Bloom2Bloom</a>.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60" data-widget-guid="wZcT_dquU1r" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="wZcT_dquU1r"><img src="http://www4.pictures.lonny.com/mp/im4PABySgMax.jpg" title="pair" alt="Whitney Port Is Moving From Fashion To Florals" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Photographed by Cole Moser.</div> </div> </div> <p>&ldquo;We created Bloom2Bloom to revolutionize the flower industry by providing modern and stylish bouquets that come directly to you from local flower farmers we have developed great friendships with over the past few years,&rdquo; said Port. &ldquo;Our aim is to truly be the first fashion-forward flower brand&nbsp;and the timing of our launch was strategic - spring is coming!&rdquo; Resnik adds, &ldquo;Our aim is to make flowers not just a luxury item but a feel-good item from everyday life.&rdquo;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60" data-widget-guid="yVT6zseMhSu" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="yVT6zseMhSu"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/4R124e5TNqtx.jpg" title="table" alt="Whitney Port Is Moving From Fashion To Florals" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Photographed by Cole Moser.</div> </div> </div> <p>Not only is Bloom2Bloom hoping to make the process easier, but to also commit to conducting ethical business practices. &ldquo;We focus on locally grown U.S. flower farms and providing our customers fresh, stunning, sustainably grown flowers,&rdquo; says Resnik. Not only does the&nbsp;brand have a collection of gorgeous bouquets you can send to your faves (or yourself), they also carry cute potted succulents for those of you with a not-so-green thumb.</p> <p>&ldquo;Additionally, it was very important for us as a brand to give back and to be involved in our local community. In order to do that, with every purchase of a Bloom2Bloom bouquet, we donate a portion of the proceeds to Wish Upon a Teen, an amazing charity that supports chronically or terminally ill teenagers.&rdquo; Beautiful flowers and a good cause? Now this sounds like something we can get behind.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60" data-widget-guid="ZjHMg0uexsl" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="ZjHMg0uexsl"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/8Rh8lmI2ZfDx.jpg" title="vert" alt="Whitney Port Is Moving From Fashion To Florals" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Photographed by Cole Moser.</div> </div> </div> <p></p> Thu, 23 Feb 2017 13:20:19 -0800 http://www.lonny.com/Scout+Out/articles/rotsB5jH84k/Whitney+Port+Moving+Fashion+Florals rotsB5jH84k You Need To See This Print-Filled Anthro Collab <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="6BDBLRd31HQ" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="6BDBLRd31HQ"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/9u8u3QZcaRvx.jpg" title="main" alt="You Need To See This Print-Filled Anthro Collab" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Courtesy of Anthropologie.</div> </div> </div> <p>Need a&nbsp;source of joy in your home?

Clearly, <a href="https://www.tomdixon.net/">Tom Dixon</a>&nbsp;has that goal in his mind. In his collaboration with <a href="http://www.ikea.com/">IKEA</a>&nbsp;to be released in 2018, the designer has been developing a modular bed that can not only double as a sofa, but can also serve as an "open platform for living," according to <a href="https://www.dezeen.com/2017/02/16/ikea-delaktig-modular-bed-sofa-tom-dixon-furniture-design-news/">Dezeen</a>. With a little help from the team at <a href="https://bemz.com/">Bemz</a>, known for creating add-ons to enhance IKEA furniture, Dixon&nbsp;has created a convertible base called the Delektig that is ready&nbsp;for easy adaptations.</p> <p>"It's turned into a raft, it's turned into a double decker bed, a sofa system for airports," said Dixon. "It's a bed first, but it can turn into anything." With a strong aluminum frame,&nbsp;the design&nbsp;is meant&nbsp;to be recycled as something new over time.&nbsp;"Delaktig is an experiment that challenges the conventional methods of creation and distribution of furniture and explores the notions of adaptability and future-proofing," says Dixon. Sounds like a good investment piece to us!</p> <p></p> Thu, 16 Feb 2017 13:05:28 -0800 http://www.lonny.com/Scout+Out/articles/nr55nxhSW-r/Get+Ready+Tom+Dixon+Innovative+IKEA+Collab nr55nxhSW-r Pinterest Board of the Week: Cabin In The Woods <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60" data-widget-guid="oHdLeRLDM9j" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="oHdLeRLDM9j"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/6XGyyiwLx2Vx.jpg" title="Pinterest image 1" alt="via Pinterest/Hannah Lovegrove." /></div> <div class="below"><em>via Pinterest/Hannah Lovegrove.</em></div> </div> </div> <p>Rustic cabins in the woods are abodes so many of us dream about, especially in the snowy months of winter.

Then you&nbsp;<em>have&nbsp;</em>to check out <a href="http://littleyellowcouch.com/">Style Matters</a>. Run by Karen June Grant and Zandra Zuraw, the podcast is a half-hour show where the duo interviews interior designers, artists, and creatives about their work. Already in their&nbsp;fourth season, the talented hosts have chatted with cool people like Rebecca Atwood, interior designer Max Humphrey, and Erin Hiemstra of Apartment 34.</p> <p>The pair's project spawned out of their own love of interiors and their desire to learn from the best. "We wanted to hear from stylists and designers their thoughts on what the process of decorating means to them and get to the foundation of what makes a home really give something back to the people who live there," says Grant and Zuraw. "We wanted to know, 'why does style matter?' Our goal with the podcast is to inspire people to embrace their passion for their homes, come away with some really creative decorating ideas, and feel like they are part of a community who share their love of interiors." With 65 episodes and counting, we're sure the inspiration is endless.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60" data-widget-guid="iAVqZGQCkWD" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="iAVqZGQCkWD"><img src="http://www4.pictures.lonny.com/mp/8LqdbpGrofgx.jpg" title="duo" alt="We Just Found Your New Fave Design Podcast" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Courtesy of Style Matters.</div> </div> </div> <p></p> Wed, 15 Feb 2017 09:42:15 -0800 http://www.lonny.com/See+It+Now/articles/7kZG-xINnsr/Just+Found+New+Fave+Design+Podcast 7kZG-xINnsr IKEA's Design Manager's Favorite Product Is So Surprising <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="wrQLofJi8Uk" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="wrQLofJi8Uk"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/hW7RDYz-wWnx.jpg" title="ikea" alt="IKEA's Design Manager's Favorite Product Is So Surprising" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Courtesy of IKEA.</div> </div> </div> <p>We all love IKEA and have a particular piece that&nbsp;pulls at our design heartstrings. But do you ever wonder what the top design chief would choose as his&nbsp;favorite product of all time? In a recent interview with <a href="http://www.businessinsider.com/best-ikea-product-of-all-time-2017-2">Business Insider</a>, Marcus Engman, the company's design manager, revealed his pick and it is&nbsp;<em>so&nbsp;</em>not what we would expect. His fave? The <a href="http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S09010617/#/S09010617">Klippan loveseat</a>.</p> <p>Not only does Engman like the loveseat for its simple design and ability to&nbsp;easily switch around its upholstery, but he also has a personal tie to the product. His father, Lars Engman, designed the product in the late '70s. "I remember when he brought it home for tests, and he asked me and my sister what we thought of it," Engman said to Business Insider. "I have a lot of fond memories with that sofa, and I'm glad that it has survived for so long."</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="m9Ul4ZRCwfo" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="m9Ul4ZRCwfo"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/Do5tvybhEApx.jpg" title="life" alt="IKEA's Design Manager's Favorite Product Is So Surprising" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Courtesy of IKEA.</div> </div> </div> <p>Although the two-seater has changed up its design over the years (the original model had a wood frame), the Klippan has remained one of the most sold products out of IKEA's entire collection.&nbsp;Looks like the small space solution is here to stay.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="DLK226knrzN" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="DLK226knrzN"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/Ci7CZPjVvGdx.jpg" title="klip" alt="IKEA's Design Manager's Favorite Product Is So Surprising" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Courtesy of IKEA.</div> </div> </div> <p></p> Tue, 14 Feb 2017 13:30:47 -0800 http://www.lonny.com/See+It+Now/articles/dn686Tf5Xtt/IKEA+Design+Manager+Favorite+Product+Surprising dn686Tf5Xtt Get The Rug Of Your Dreams In One Click <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="OPCn4goWSPL" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="OPCn4goWSPL"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/3BZ699fyXc6x.jpg" title="rug" alt="Courtesy of The Rug Company." /></div> <div class="below">Courtesy of The Rug Company.</div> </div> </div> <p>There&rsquo;s something to be said about the discerning shopper.
