Everyone knows that we are huge fans of felt here at GRM and when you add a little leather into the mix you get the perfect combination. The diFeltro Fold is an American designed but Italian made carrier for your iPad or other sundry electronic items. I love the pallet of materials, and the execution looks pretty top notch as well. It's not surprising then that the kickstarter campaign is already fully funded and still has 21 days to go.

You know us, we're always looking for ways to sneak a little wool felt into our lives... May as well be woven and fantastic while we're at it! These cozy storage baskets are even available in three sizes, so they'll meet any of your entryway, home office, or craft room needs!
Wood and felt for the win (again)! Designer Eric Janssen's stackable beech coasters will add a nice pop of color while protecting that precious coffee or side table of yours. Kind of a win-win, don't you think?
We've posted about iPad, iPhone, and laptop sleeves galore but it's good to see the Kindle* finally getting some love! It doesn't hurt that I've got a soft spot for anything made from wool felt, but throw a little leather into that mix too and it's a surefire hit. So, to the Rustic Case Company I say: Nicely done!
* I love my** Kindle!
** I should clarify: I love my husband's Kindle that I have since co-opted.
Anyone who has read this blog for a while knows what a soft spot I have for anything felt. Special thanks to GRM Michelle who sent in a link to these felt Bubble Dot Sleeves by MIO Culture. These 100% felt sleeves come in a couple different sizes,and can be used for iPads or laptops.
On a side note, when I told Michelle I was swooning over these now, she said men don't swoon.
Michelle. I swoon.
Bubble Dot Sleeve $55
UK based Cushlab is doing some fantastically creative pillows out of felt. The texture and colors that Becca puts together really take things to the next level. All pillows are made out of wool/felt viscose and 100% wool. Sizing is standard so it should be easy to find a nice down insert. Pricing starts around £70.00 for the smaller sizes. Custom orders are accepted.
I have been lusting over Barbara Hill's modern interiors ever since I first discovered her work (which, for the record, was last week). One of my favorite spaces is this restored dance hall in Marfa, Texas, which Barbara resides in about half of the year. It's a unique combination of South Western, Scandinavian, and Contemporary styles - and it totally, totally works for me. What do you think?
More pics after the jump.
P.S. Bonus points if you spotted a Felt Shade Light in this home!
It's just about log-burning time, folks! While I personally don't have a fireplace, you better believe I'd be all over this felt log carrier if I did. Choppin' logs and haulin' wood in style, my friends. That's what it's all about.
Felt Log Carrier from Crate & Barrel: $24.95
And the felt obsession continues. This time around it's piggybacking on my modern bird house obsession. While I have no idea how functional these would actually be, I love the idea. These bird houses are hand felted by a woman's NGO in South Africa. The micro co-op uses all natural dyes to achieve the dark grey, coral, dark jade and ochre colors. Available in small or large.
Hand felted bird house $49 -$58.
Surprise, surprise. It's felt! As you know, we can't get enough of this material - we love it with our whole heart(s)! This child-sized chair from Bookhou makes good use of it, too. With a removeable industrial felt cover, this chair is all about good looks and comfort for your wee ones. Also sold without the felt cushion, but why would you want to do that?
Felt Chair by Bookhou: $300 with felt / $250 without
It should come as no surprise to anyone that I am in love with these felt coasters. First off, they are felt, and everyone knows I'm a huge sucker for felt. Secondly, they are orange, a color that I am unable to resist. Put the two together and it's a slam dunk. The fact that it's made from an old sweater and only costs $8 for a set of four is just icing on the cake.
Simple Felt Coasters $8 from Mary Zoom's Etsy shop.
We can't get enough felt products here at Grassroots Modern! These fun coasters from Etcetera Media are made from industrial felt and come in four reversible color options. Protect your tabletops and practice your math skills all at once. This could be a fun way to help the kids learn, too - just add candy!
