In the electronic age, low-tech can feel like an absolute luxury. Case in point: Graphic Image, a family-owned company that’s been producing photo albums, datebooks and desk accessories for 40 years. Its pieces range from modern (candy-colored goatskin notebooks) to traditional (leather-bound albums with gilt-edged pages), but one thing that’s always consistent is an obsessive attention to quality. Its leathers come from top tanneries in France and Italy, its crocodile covers are hand-stained, and all the bindings are Smyth-sewn for a warm, rich look. Now who can say that about a cell phone?
Put plenty of color and personality into your workday with these eye-catching (and rather glam) accents. They might make work downright fun … or, at least, more fun than it was before.
From travel guides to handy totes, these books and accents will inspire wanderlust. They’re a must for stylish globetrotters.
Flowers and chocolates were so last year... and the year before... and the year before. Try something a little more lasting this year with these stylish, sophisticated — and, yes, even romantic — designs.
If you're inspired to dress in bold color, why not dress your home in it, too?

The accessories, lighting, rugs, and pillows on offer here will let you bring this trend home — literally.
