Jeni Crawford contacted me last month in regards to her charming new store Rian Rae, which she calls, "The online version of the store that I would like to open someday." Jeni has an eye for beauty and her eclectic mix is a fresh and cohesive blend of old and new finds. It takes a lot of confidence to open a store and present your "best of" list to the world - you hope your customers will walk away feeling the same about your finds as you do. Jeni's collection is a delight, she will no doubt develop quite a following with such exquisite taste. Congrats, Jeni! Peeking through her offerings, I couldn't help but notice all the texture, subdued hues, and the general nature theme she has going on - everything feels so casual yet so very sophisticated, and she has some of the best lighting ever at all price points. Jeni told me that Rian Rae is a work in progress so you can visit the site daily and expect to find new items.
Here are some of my top picks: The crochet throw and pendant lighting (love the airy feel and oh so tactile!), French crinkle pendant (reminds me of Paris), Scandinavian stag head (I'm not even a big fan of animal heads on the wall, but I would totally own this), and the beverage dispenser (we had one of those at our wedding for sangria).
