Welcome.

My name is Margot Austin and I am the editor-in-chief of The Design Edit, a collection of the best design stories I encounter in my life as a stylist and design communications specialist. Read on to meet top talents, get inspired by beautiful spaces, find out about innovative products and  maybe even try one of my dead-easy DIY projects. I look forward to connecting with you, a fellow design hound.

So minimalist, so perfect. Coffee is a pretty big deal around our freelance household and French Press is our method of choice. One less plug-in kitchen gadget is a good idea. Our current model is bottom of the line and not very handsome. This one, on the other hand, would surely inspire productivity and bursts of creative energy at Margot Austin Creative. Just look at it. I spied it on the Old Faithful Shop site and it's currently sold out. But I did add my email address to be notified when it's available again. If that email lands in my inbox I may consider it a sign that this is meant to be. We'll see.

It's made in Vietnam at a Fair Trade ceramics business that ensures ethical working conditions and is backed by 700 years in the ceramics business.
