The Anthology of “Editor’s Picks”


I got Wish magazine/catalogue , the W Hotels new fashion and decor catalogue, in the mail this morning. I had never heard of it but when I opened it I was pretty impressed. Impressed not so much by the novelty of the items but how well they did their homework. The offerings were essentially an anthology of every “Editors Pick” page from every home design magazine to come out in the past four years–from classics like the Kartell’s Louis Ghost Chair to the ever-trendy Golden Banana Bowl. As far as pricing goes, you would think the W would include a boutique-hotel-style markup, right? Amazing enough I did a little comparison shopping and the W Hotel Store had some of the lowest prices offered online! Worth checking out, even if it’s to catch up on all the old magazines you missed.

These stainless steel votives by Danish designer Marcus Vagnby for $59 were my favorite fresh find on the site. Love the pop of red and the shiny smooth surfaces makes me want to hold them.
