Every year, since Greta was born, I have given Chris a photo of his daughter(s) for father’s day. He knows it’s coming, yes, but he always tears up and brings it to work to hang on the walls in his office like the proud dad he is. Last year, was his first father’s day as a father of two and I did a fun, little photoshoot of both girls. You may remember seeing a few of those pictures.
Faye was so tiny! This year, I took photos of him with each girl very casually, just using my iPhone while he was sitting in his chair after he got home from work. They are candid and full of personality and I cherish them!
I had them printed through Artifact Uprising in their signature print + wood cleat and I love how they turned out! The print is ultra thick and luxe and the beetle pine wood cleat is magnetic (so it’s easy to slip the print in) and ready to hang. It feels a little masculine and absolutely gorgeous.
And the good news is, we’ve partnered with Artifact Uprising to giveaway one of their Signature Prints + Wood Cleats to one of you just in time for father’s day! (Or keep it for yourself, we won’t tell a soul.) You can enter below. If you are anxious and want to order some of their other prints or photo books (the most beautiful things!) right now, you can use the code AUCLJ10 for 10% off your entire order. Both the code and the giveaway end on June 11th.
So that’s my go-to gift for Chris, in addition to filling the latest kitchen gear void he has found. Do you have a go-to father’s day gift?
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
