Here at Lonny, we are constantly inundated with inspiration: from a hand-stamped velvet swatch coming across our desks to the film from a recent photo shoot popping up in our inboxes, we all deeply appreciate the moments of beauty we witness on a daily basis. My current inspiration, however, comes not on a computer screen or from a man-made fabric, but from Mother Nature. My ultimate #MeMoment? Taking the time to appreciate small instances of beauty that happen simply as a reward for paying attention.

A whimsical installation of giant felt mushrooms belied the chic store's contents: nature-inspired jewelry by the likes of Jessica Berwind and Jonathan Wahl displayed alongside the works of collage artist Sarah Zwerling and branch-like porcelain candlesticks designed by Ted Meuhling for Nymphenburg.

At once modern and earthy, Egan Day is an escape in and of itself—and the perfect spot to immerse yourself in a nature-inspired shopping #MeMoment.
