The Nightstand: Nature Inspired


These gorgeous petrified wood nightstands are a great way to bring the outdoors inside. Thoreau looks fabulous on any natural element. Calm your mind by getting back to nature in a less creepy way than crickets on a sound machine. Visit CP’s Krrb corner to pick it up. $975.

The Book: The Painted Veil by Somerset Maughm


Love-starved Kitty Fane is forced to accompany her husband to the heart of a cholera epidemic after he discovers her adultery. Without the comforts of her society status back home in Hong Kong, she is pressed to reassess her life and learn how to love.

The crime novel by the late Swedish author and journalist Stieg Larsson is a serious page-turner.

You’ll want to follow this punk-goth computer hacker through the trilogy.

The Nightstand: Scandinavian Perfection


The theme is Scandinavia here folks. Beautiful and as the description says “completely functional without any significant issues.” Ingmar Bergman, eat your heart out. Visit Jeffery Gurad’s Krrb corner to pick it up! $149.

This could work for many masters of modern literature, but we went with Hemingway due to the classic oak finish on this handsome nightstand. Visit Shopworks Studio’s Krrb corner to pick it up. $375.
