Areaware Innovations Make Everyday Products More Meaningful

Areaware, a New York based distributor, is my new favorite design company.

I had the pleasure of walking the New York International Gift Fair a few weeks ago and nearly had a heart attack when I stumbled upon the Areaware booth. Familiar with some of their products, like the gilded roller-skate doorstop from Generate Design shop, I felt like I had entered the mecca of meaningful, well-thought out design. Good design stops me in my tracks. Makes me giddy. Makes me crave more, more, more.

The slideshow is a sampling of my favorite Areaware items - the pieces I kept going back to inspect. The items I wanted to slip into my bag and take home with me right then and right there.
