Château Thivin Brouilly label

RED WINE ($15.69, winechateau.com)
“I have a mental block when it comes to wine, but the Château Thivin Brouilly has a really well-rounded body that ages nicely.

 

 

VERBENA SOAP BY PRÉ DE PROVENCE

VERBENA SOAP BY PRÉ DE PROVENCE ($7, RR#1, 814 N. Ashland Ave.)
“It’s a smell that I don’t recognize on a lot of people. Very different from the soaps I knew as a kid like Irish Spring.”

 

 

CUCKOO CLOCKS

CUCKOO CLOCKS
“I [enjoy] their elements (the carved-wood box, the pine cones, and the air bellows), which have not changed much in the last couple hundred years.”

 

 

'SIX MEMOS FOR THE NEXT MILLENNIUM' BY ITALO CALVINO

SIX MEMOS FOR THE NEXT MILLENNIUM BY ITALO CALVINO ($13.95, amazon.com)
“This book is about how to be lighter and more exact in your writing. It’s literary criticism more than anything, and it’s absolutely fascinating.”

 

 

TABLE BY ESTABLISHED & SONS

TABLE BY ESTABLISHED & SONS ($71,280, Luminaire, 301 W. Superior St.)
“I’ve liked F1 and NASCAR racing ever since I was a kid, and it grew into an obsession. This table combines my love for F1 technology [used to create its ultrathin surface] and great design.”
