Right before we moved, our NamaMat showed up on the doorstep and I could barely wait another second to get it unrolled (so I hope you won’t mind seeing it in our last kitchen in this post). If you haven’t heard of NamaMat yet (it’s from the creative geniuses behind @little_nomad_ ) it’s available for sale one Kickstarter right now–and funded in just 7 minutes! They sent us one to try out before it hit Kickstarter (thank you!!!) and well, it’s a game changer. It’s a functional, squishy mat that also looks like a beautiful vintage, heirloom rug.
It’s a dream in the kitchen, laundry room, by a standing desk–anywhere you stand the most. It takes so much pressure of your back and feet–and is easy on the eyes, too. ;) Chris squished back and forth on it, making everyone breakfast. My mom (our nanny) “borrowed” it later to slip into our laundry room and graciously fold our laundry with a comfy mat under her feet. (Already ordered her a smaller one in Sand for her laundry room!)
(We’re already taking turns rolling ours out in every room of our new house. (Standing on it to break down boxes makes the task so much more bearable) So it’s probably time to get a second 😉.)
