We also love this Will Barnet Serigraph on Ebay and this set of Ribbon book ends from Book/Shop.

Coffee lover

We are longtime fans of Canyon Coffee in fact, Canyon's Chocojau Guatemalan bean is an essential piece to QL founder Elizabeth's morning. And to share this love with you, we have partnered Canyon Coffee founders Ally Walsh and Casey Wojtalewicz to celebrate the rituals found in reading and a warm cup.  Avid readers both, Ally and Casey have curated the perfect selection of stories to warm a winter's night.

We also love this Ban.do "But Coffee First" mug, this fireplace scented candle by D.S & Durga and this coffee canister from Crate & Barrel.


We are so excited to collaborate with Cherry Bombe in support of the release of Cherry Bombe: The CookbookEpicurean 04 x Cherry Bombe includes:

Cherry Bombe: The Cookbook, A one-year subscription to Cherry Bombe (so good right!!!?!), Cherry Bombe Classic Tote, #Bombesquad enamel pin, limited edition "You're the Bombe" print by artist Samantha Hahn (because you are!).

We also love ILA extra virgin olive oil (gorgeous package right!?) and Sonoma sea salt. How adorable is this cherry pouch from Baggu by artist Claire Nereim? This MCMC Maine candle would be perfect to keep in the kitchen.

We're obsessed with Book/Shop's birch ply book display (the perfect home for our fiction collection). This gorgeous diptyche candle is on the desk of every magazine editor and makes any room smell like heaven. Speaking of heavenly scents, this D.S & Durga perfume is such a gorgeous package and will make you feel as good as you smell. We partnered with Sefte Living for our Aesthete box and are now smitten with their super cozy and soft throws. This Kimsa Woven throw is the most beautiful texture and color (sea glass), so perfect to curl up with on a chilly day with book in hand.

We think they'd look stunning on display in Book/Shop's bright white book shelf. Speaking of perfect collections, we'd love to receive Ellis Brooklyn's Bibliotheca collection, a library of limited edition scents. This Good Thing/Gather vase would be perfect perched bedside with a sprig of dried lavendar, wax flower or eucalyptus.



Last but not least, our Memoir collection curated by The Fold Magazine. Amanda Carter Gomes launched the new online magazine The Fold last summer and we couldn't be more excited for what this new space brings to the table.
