i love the sleek, stylish look of a black leather sofa — and in fact had one in my san francisco home for a long time. i love them even more, when they’re nice and worn in, so hunting for a vintage sofa that’s already been well loved and lived in a bit is a good way to go. i went hunting on chairish and found gorgeous black leather sofas, lounge chairs and chaise in all shapes and sizes. here’s a few i’ve been admiring and favoriting, along with some visual inspiration for how great a black sofa can look in your space. and for more inspiration, check out my pinboard, sofa noir.
you can count us in on any kind of coffee talk, including caffeine in destinations we can only hope to one day swing by for a cup o’ joe. onibus coffee is a tokyo-based roaster and two-time coffee shop (the first in okusawa, second in nakameguro) that has all the interior vibes we dream for. special tiles and glassware from local artisans, and those minimal japanese elements we never stop trying to recreate (that’s where our read this there comes in) — onibus is the equivalent of a silverlake cool-kid neighborhood hangout in a japan.

we’re having a retro moment for a trend that’s lingered on our pinterest feed even after summer’s end — the headscarf. how cool does one look when they’ve perfectly mastered the wrapping of a pucci print scarf, more than appropriate on days when we may not have the energy to wash our hair. we tend to fantasize stumbling upon the perfect scarf for a weekend get-away to palm springs, or while trailing rows at the flea market (a good spot to score vintage scarves for just a few bucks). whether you’re channeling lulu de la falaise, or an hermes ad campaign from the 60s’, we’re right there with you (watching how-to tie videos on youtube, stellar and vimeo no less).
