Pico Design

Andrea Panico is the founder and Creative Director of Pico Design. An industrial designer who loves both the large scale of architecture and the small scale of jewelry, her designs bring the two together in a collection of modern heirloom jewelry. Panico creates pieces that are unique and designed for women who are equally so.

The name Pico is short for the Italian word Piccolo, meaning little or small. Like Mies Van der Rohe, we believe that “God is in the Details,” and that the little things are hugely important in design. No matter how small, all the choices we make are design decisions. Pico celebrates the little things and the big impact they have in our homes, on our bodies and in our lives.

Mind’s Eye Design

Mind’s Eye Design is an independent jewelry company based in and inspired by the beauty of Northern California. Tara Brown is the woman behind the designs. She has been making jewelry since 1989, when a high school art teacher introduced her to lost wax casting and soldering. She studied fine art and art history and has the artists equivalent to a green thumb. She uses her knack for design for everything from Easter egg decoration to festive flag making. Her years of making jewelry and just generally making ordinary objects beautiful have resulted in the creation of Mind’s Eye Design: a jewelry company dedicated to sourcing the majority of materials used from U.S. companies and working with other small, independent manufactures.

KOBO Candles

KOBO was created in 2006 by Junko Kobori. Originally from Kumamoto in southern Japan, she and her husband spent many years traveling the world before settling in Saratoga Springs, NY. Junko was always struck by the scent of each place, and how absent those fragrances were when a photo of a location is viewed. Yet later, while reminiscing on her travels, the aroma was still very present to her memory. She came to realize that fragrance is one of the key elements to bringing any environment to life, and it is the most often overlooked. Junko began creating scents for her own home that would be as equally memorable to her family and guests as the paintings on the walls, or flavors of the food served. From this the KOBO range was born.

Kobo candles are made of domestically grown sustainable soybeans. This creates the cleanest burning medium and excellent level of fragrance yield. Cotton wicks provide a pure and clean flame. Kobo candles are not only created using environmentally friendly materials but they do not pollute the home either.

The Kobo scents are achieved using the finest boutique fragrance houses in the US. Each candle is then made to specific standards that maximize the fragrance yield to the individual scent to create a room-filling yet not overpowering aroma.
