Let Verónica Martínez's LEAF Swing Propel You Into Summer

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2014

There's something so magical and innocent about a swing, and this design by Verónica Martínez is one that we want in our gardens ASAP. Fascinated with the world around her, Granada-born Martínez's nature-inspired designs are made to encourage others to connect with nature and those around them. Called LEAF Swing, this wood sculpture is limited to a run of 88 and was inspired by the falling leaves of autumn. Made with both children and adults in mind, the swing is sculpted by artisans in Spain, who carve a solid piece of wood by hand to create the finished product. Martínez also designed versions made from cast aluminum and  cast bronze. 

To buy the swing, email sales@veronicamartinezdesign.com.

Transamac Recreates the Traditional Hammock to Offer Modern Weightlessness

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2014

When we think of a hammock, we generally think of the old rope ones that our dad tied between two trees in the backyard — complete with the unappealing patterns they pressed into the backs of our thighs. The Transamac from French brand BELANKA brings a really cool modern twist to the classic design that everyone loves to nap on in the summer. The cool poolside furniture piece is more like a suspended bed than a hammock, giving a feeling of weightlessness when you relax on it — complete with a raised shelf underneath to hide your things from the sun. Though you can order it in its most basic form, we like the whole package that comes with the "elastomer shrouds" that are reminiscent of a bed canopy. Made using steel that has been treated to resist rusting, the design comes in a wide variety of colors to choose from, whether you like the brightness of canary yellow paired with teal or the more subdued option of dark blues. Several items are available to add on, like curtains (€170/$230) for complete privacy, a mosquito net (€270/$366), and a rain cover (€430/$584).

Be the Barista of Your Kitchen With the Nostalgic GS/3 by La Marzocco

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2014

Everyone has their own idea of what makes the perfect cup of espresso, with some pledging allegiance to a specific coffee shop and others insisting upon making their own at home with the right machine. Whichever group you fall into, you should consider the classically designed GS/3 by La Marzocco because it may just become your new favorite luxury espresso gadget. Promising a smaller footprint than other commercial-grade machines, the GS/3 is handmade in Florence, Italy and features a preheating system, digital PID (proportional-integral-derivative) controller, saturated groups for better temperature stability, a dual-boiler system, and a digital display. Plus, it also comes with a two-hour training experience so you won't look like a fool, a one-year warranty, and complimentary accessories to get you started.

The Vintage Van Beach Cooler That Channels Stevie Nicks' Cool Factor

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2014

Frontgate's Vintage Van Beach Cooler makes us want to pull out our acid wash jean shorts and blast Fleetwood Mac tunes with some friends on our favorite beach, though a really cool backyard would work just as well. Handmade using 44-gallon oil drums, complete with each drum's natural distressing, the cooler recreates the look of a well-worn vintage Volkswagen bus. The lid, which has three multi-colored surfboards on it, can be propped open if you want. As cool as it looks, the real concern here is how much it can hold and according to the company, the 15-gallon basin holds around 35 cans or glass bottles (or 18 wine bottles, if you're classy like that).

Help Victims of Human Trafficking With Boll & Branch's Luxury Bedding

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2014

We love companies that are socially aware of the world we all live in, and while a great story is great for marketing, it can still be beneficial. Having set out to change the way we view luxury bedding (much like Toms did for shoes), Boll & Branch wants to positively mark the world by cutting out the middleman to work directly with fair trade farmers and factory workers in India. We love their Trimmed Sheet Set (which comes in ivory or white) and to be honest, it's one of the softest sheet sets we've ever tunneled into on a Friday night. Featuring a six-hole pattern that is inspired by their logo, the sheet set gives off a nice vintage feel and can easily be paired with a heirloom quilt or more modern throws (which they also happen to sell). Plus, their standard of presentation is fantastic, with sets folded within fabric bags and a signature box that ties with a cloth ribbon — it practically screams "wedding gift."

Boll & Branch's 100 percent organic cotton products are only available to buy through their site and they donate a portion of every purchase to Not For Sale, a non-profit that helps give shelter, education and hope to victims of human trafficking.
