This month in Julie’s Medicine Cabinet, our founder details what she’s currently coveting. Julie’s picks for May are inspired by the house she plans to build in Mexico and the interiors she has her eye on. From Julie’s favorite teapot to her go-to candle holder, and chrome-like side table, Julie’s discoveries are the products you need and never knew you needed.
Wilhem Wagenfeld Glass Teapot 1931, Janaer Glas
This design by Wilhelm Wagenfeld originated in the 30s and is comparable to a piece of art. “It’s made with this type of heat-resistant glass from Germany that can handle extreme variations in temperature. I love this one so much that I have two of them, one that I keep in my home and one that I kept at the perfumery. Because it’s clear glass, I love the visual effects of brewing fresh herbs to make a tisane, and since it’s springtime, we’re going full force with nettles and lemongrass.”
The Adjustable Table by Eileen Gray
The original Adjustable Table is on display at the MoMA and architect Eileen Grey designed these for her seaside house on the French Riviera. “I rented two of these for a photo shoot and I liked them so much, I bought them. I love them because they are versatile, fluid, and almost invisible. I keep the tables as nightstands on both sides of the bed. And because of its design, I move it around and even use it as a table to put on the edge of the bathtub to hold my candles and elixirs.”
John Pawson Hurricane Candle Holder
This candle holder is also by an architect named John Pawson, and it perfectly represents his minimalist aesthetic. "This simple heavy bronze base holds one candle and has an elegant glass cylinder on top. They work in any space, and they're exquisite. Like the Adjustable Table by Eileen Grey, they almost disappear in a space. If you're a major design aficionado, you'll love these too."
