About

 
Arren Williams is the name, and I'm a stylist, editor and trend reporter. You'll catch my work regularly popping up in print in the likes of the National Post, House & Home and elsewhere. I'm also a guest expert on Citytv's CityLine, and you can occasionally find me on HGTV as well as on ABC 7 News in Chicago.

To keep things fun I've tapped a couple of friends - Julia Black and Jenn Hannotte - to contribute their views on design too. Enjoy!

{giving it} Sukat Makkaralla glassware

{giving it} is all about my take on what makes a good gift. Today I have kitchenware on the brain, since I've been pulling together a look book for a kitchen shoot next week. And that's when I stumbled on Marimekko's latest line of glassware - Sukat Makkaralla. What the what? Yep, the name is kind of a mouthfull, but translate it from Finnish to English and it means "socks with sausage" or - I think this probably conjures up a better visual - "socks rolled down", which is what inspired designer Anu Penttinen to give the colourful glassware its ruched design.
