Today's post is a continuation of my week-long series on wedding registries. See my first post here and the second one here.
If you weren't MoMA Store obsessed like I am, you might not know that they have actually allow you to create registries (wedding, birthday, baby, etc.) on their website. Since MoMA Store has an amazing selection of quality design at all price points and for every part of your life, I think it is the perfect compliment to standard registries as places like Target, Crate & Barrel or Bed, Bath and Beyond. You can register for everything from office supplies to furniture, making for gift options to appeal to everyone's budget, from your college buddy to spoil-you-rotten grandmas.
So, without further ado, here are my favorite picks from the MoMA Store . . .
Dress up that white-walled rental apartment with this beautiful pendant lamp shade. $100
Durable and timelessly chic, this Eames chair comes in several colors to suit every and any room in the house. $499
Can you sense a theme here? This Eames coatrack has been on my wall for years now and it never fails to be both useful and unique (trust me, you'll get tons compliments!). $199
A small gift, but a sweet one. After all, you are starting a future together and what better way to represent that than a joint piggy bank? Feeling extra generous? Stuff the bank with some cash! $29.95
Another chair option for the eternally sophisticated and the minimalist minded, the Victoria Side Chair would look perfect in a bedroom or beside a desk. $330
Part functional object, part sculpture, this stool would make a whimsical addition to any home and would fit perfectly into a kid's room in the future (no pressure! says your mom). $225
On the low end in terms of price but on the high end in terms of functionality, this rotating power strip could be a cute gift if paired with some sort of electronic (say a nice lamp, or an Apple product). $30
I am a sucker for wall clocks, particularly those that make a statement (more just telling the time). This one has a magnetically attached ball that rotates with each passing minute. Beautiful, mystifying and sure to be a conversation starter. $60
Everyone can use a beautiful vase and this Alvar Aalto version is absolutely lovely. Cute gift idea: give them the vase before the wedding and then after they return from their honeymoon have a bouquet of flowers delivered—a sort of welcome home gift—to make sure they put it to good use! $95
