greenergrassdesign is a brand new, two-person, houston-based design store. they describe themselves as, "native houstonians, [with a ] unique combination that includes a twenty-five year friendship, one fine art degree, one business degree and the need for something better." greenergrassdesign describes their style as a "curatorial approach...that hopes to offer-up something special to both designer and consumer".

i was quite impressed with their collection- especially a line of serving plates and dishes by robex guscio. according to ggd, "robex items are non-deformable and shock-resistant. they can withstand temperatures ranging from – 5° C to + 78° C. they are dishwasher safe, odorless, do not absorb liquids and the surface stays bright and shiny, even after prolonged use." not bad. plus they look fabulous.

along with a fantastic lighting, kitchen (don't miss the awesome knife holder!), home, accents and office collection, green grass design carries a great collection of jewelry, with pieces by one of my favorites, ronni kappos.

I LOVE that knife holder! Neet-o. And those stamp/coffee mugs look really familiar. Have we seen those before?? Hmm. I like the idea.

I really like the Robex Bruco bowls--here's something similar at Target. Not exactly the same, but a nice alternative for those of us on limited budgets. :-)

If I'm not mistaken, the bowls are $25-$35...is that really too high priced???

I mean come on...I understand balking at $4,000 cribs, but is $25 or $35 really too high for those on a budget? I live on a budget and certainly don't think $35 is unreasonable.

It all depends on what *your* budget is, Anne. Glad to know your budget allows for $35 bowls. Mine, alas, does not.

I find it really sad that this blog which has always been such a great resource has begun to devolve into a place to bitch about the price of an object rather than the merits of that object. There will always be things that are for lack of a better word "aspirational". I'd much rather save my pennies to buy a really beautifully designed and well made object rather than try to find the cheap imitation at some big box store.

i'd like to clarify that only the comment section has devolved into that.

i personally don't have a problem with $35 bowls, so i don't mention it in the main blog.

i mean, it's not like i only buy $35 bowls. i also buy $10 plates and $5 mugs at target. it's all about mixing and matching.

i know people are gonna wig out when i say this, but i find it difficult to believe that the occasional $35 bowl is out of anyone's budget who reads the site. i make a very low wage by most people's standards, esp those in ny, but even i can splurge on the occasional $35 object.

i can feel the hate mail coming on now...

I bought the Cumulus vase in blue and once I received it in the mail (extremely quick shipping by the way) I liked it so much I went & ordered it in clear and blue as a present for my Mum. I also ordered the white foam coasters and fell in love with them as well. The designs are clean and contemporary, & work well too. Good find - I wasn't aware of this site until you posted it. Thank you.
