MoMA Spotlighted

While I am eagerly awaiting the photos that Kerri, from Taylor Grey, took of my wedding stationery, I thought perhaps i would blog about some of my favorite items from MoMA.

All of these items are either;
1. great design
2. functional
3. so cool
4. great gifts for people who have everything
5. all of the above!

Handmade in New York City.

The handle of this clever mug features a gold-colored finish and is embedded with a Swarovski crystal, giving it the appearance of a sparkling ring.
Packaged in a black velvet box, only the "ring" is visible when the box is opened,
making it seem that a different gift is being given.
Made of porcelain, gold-colored finish, and a Swarovski crystal.
Hand wash only. Not for use in the microwave.
