Current Obsessions - Volume 08

Current Obsessions is our recurring feature where you'll get an inside look into what Alder New York's Chief Creative Officer David Krause and CEO Nina Zilka are currently obsessing over.

1 DK: This paint stroke inspired throw from Hem is beautiful enough to hang on your wall as a piece of art.

2 DK: Cody Foster's Disco Ball Tree Topper completes my full silver and white disco-wonderland themed Christmas tree. I only wish it actually spun like a real disco ball - that would be true Christmas magic!

3 DK: Last month I went to see the Black American Portraits exhibition at the LACMA which included the Obama presidential portraits and so many amazing works from artist of all eras and mediums. It was definitely one of the best shows I've ever seen.

4 DK: This little fish shaped pocket knife is one of my favorite stocking stuffers. It so cute and just strange enough to be memorable.

5 DK: Alder New York's Cleansing Bundle features my favorite items from our current selection- our skin smoothing Cleansing Body Bar, our plastic-free Soap Dish, and our ultra-soft Cleansing Facial Brush. It's the perfect gift for anyone.

6 NZ: I recently upgraded from my sputtering-to-its-end BIC candle lighter to this beautiful olive green rechargeable, butane-free one that uses ARC technology derived from the tesla coil- so you never need to use lighter fluid again.

7 NZ: This hanging solar window charger from Grouphug is perfect for charging your iphone or kindle off the electric grid, and it looks like art. 

8 NZ: I love all things tiny foods, so why wouldn’t I be obsessed with Cody Foster tiny food ornaments? As a New Yorker the coffee and bagel especially speak to me.

9 NZ: Yes, we are currently out of stock of our beloved Everyday Face Cleanser, and yes, my skin has been feeling the lack. Good thing I fly through Laguardia Airport for the holidays, where a few customers have snapped pictures showing that it is indeed still in stock there- for now…

10 NZ: I love these beautiful pieces from Santa Fe-based Whiskey & Clay. Her pieces are a blend of porcelain and stoneware which gives it that marbley look.
