Lifecycling visits the home of Takahiro Goko- collector and owner of Swimsuit Department, a retail store that exists online and through trunk shows. Prior to Swimsuit Department Mr. Goko worked with some notable Japanese brands including United Arrows and Landscape Products Co. The interview is a good read especially for those interested in “things” both old and new. His blog is one of my favorite places on the internet to see “things”, highly recommended.

My home stereo is not quite worthy when compared to these set ups. If you’re a fan of oversized knobs, brushed aluminum, and wood cases you’re probably going to have a good time nerding out and clicking around here.
Definitely my favorite collaboration from the newly launched The Hill-Side & Co collection was done in conjunction with Sit and Read– purveyors of vintage furniture and other goods. My birthday is coming up, guys.. more info here.

Rooms from the Acme Furniture catalog. I like the mix of different styles from modern chairs to repurposed flea-like finds. My own home doesn’t have a single pair of matching chairs, but more on that later though. Check out the rest of the catalog here.

This is the stuff that (my) dreams are made of. Situated in Elkhorn, Wisconsin Wandawega Lake Resort was rumored to have been established as a speakeasy sometime in the late 1920’s and has since come a long way. A variety of accommodations are available ranging from tent campsite, to cabins, and even a tree house. Wandawega has also just launched an online camp store that will also exist as a brick and mortar souvenir shop at the resort. Lastly, their blog A Very Modest Cottage is not to be missed and was an instant bookmark as soon as I found it.
