Reveille Enamelware Mug

After eight months of planning, conceptualizing and manufacturing, designer Chris Pecora was finally able to sit down with a steaming hot cup of coffee — in an enamelware mug he designed himself. The Reveille Enamelware Mug ($19 each) is inspired by the bugle wake-up call in the military. Ideal for anyone who loves an early start to the day, wherever they are, this mug is safe for stovetop, campfire and dishwasher.

Inspirati x Post Hotel & Spa

If you’ve visited the Post Hotel & Spa in Lake Louise, you know they don’t fool around when it comes to luxury and style. Looking for a gift for its loyal clientele, the Post asked Wendy Brownie at Inspirati in Mission to create a beautiful handcrafted tea towel. Now for purchase at Inspirati, proceeds from the sale of the tea towels ($50) will support the Happy Kamper Campaign, raising funds for the Kids Cancer Care Foundation’s Camp Kindle

Pic-Nic Set

Architecture and design duo Mark Erickson and Matthew Kennedy spend most of their days working on large-scale residential projects, like designing garden lofts and restoring a recently acquired century-old home. However, their smaller design projects are just as ambitious, like this collapsible bench and table Pic-Nic Set ($2,500, including second bench not shown). The design team aimed to rethink the bench to be more ergonomic and playful, and they succeeded with a sculptural form that not only is beautiful to look at but also hugs the body comfortably. And the table is height adjustable.
