THE ROUNDUP: A SELECTION OF THIS SUMMERS BEST SELLERS!

Elizabeth Tobin

With sweet summertime drifting away we wanted to take a look back at this summer's bestsellers! From fun poufs, custom pillows, rugs, notebooks to jewelry- we've had a variety of handcrafted lifestyle products so many customers have loved and we know you will too. So whether you are about standing out or getting in with the trend, see more about what favorite products found a home this summer season below!

Sterling Silver, 14K Gold, Oxidized Silver are a few of our customers favorite things. Colleen Mauer, a San Fransisco based artist crafts each piece of jewelry with characterand a hand hammered touch inspired by her surroundings. Her process is "organic and unplanned, spontaneous and surprising" making her a stand out artisan, and we must say, a sure shop favorite, at SYD+SAM. 

 Inspired by the opportunity to bring fun, color, and versatility to a space, we recently added a kids section to our shop. There are a few handmade vendors at the heart of this collection that we just absolutely love. And we have to say it's true, we found Monroe Workshop via Instagram! They're wild and hilarious kids toys are handmade from scraps of wood LA Furniture Designer Matt Monroe collects in the wood shop. Immediately attracted to their minimalist design, we just knew their west coast vibes would be a great addition to our east coast store.

Get Your Summer Picnic On!

Elizabeth Tobin

We're halfway through summer and the cicadas are calling. We've found weekends to be the perfect time to just get up & go! Whether it's to the park, the beach, heck even the backyard we can help you get your summer picnic on in style. So, if you're keeping it romantic or planning a night on the common with friends, Areaware's fish knife is not only a shop favorite but is also the perfect companion for any picnic mood.

FISH KNIFE

We're huge fan of Sunbrella throws for their soft to the touch feel, vibrant colors, and durable fabric. They're perfect for nights on the back deck with family. We paired one below with Areware's natural bottle opener in beech and a simple little market list from Rifle Paper Co. Whatever you choose to fill your basket, make sure that you bring good company! Remember, picnics don't necessarily mean you have to head to the grass! The point of the perfect picnic is finding the time. Take a look at our summer picnic essentials list below to get inspired for your next night in the park!
