Man Shops Globe

I tried to tivo Man Shops Globe a few different times but somehow it never recorded. It is a show about the found objects buyer at Anthropologie, Keith Johnson. Essentially it shows him traveling the world and finding lovely things to reproduce and sell to me. I happily discovered I could buy the episodes off itunes last week and have watched almost all the episodes. It really is inspiring, after every episode I’ll say something to Paul like, “you know, we really need to go to Turkey” or “How come we’ve never gone to Holland?” Some of my favorite of his discoveries are: those chairs from Holland covered in old oil paintings, the Calligraphy bed from France, and that amazing chandelier from South Africa made from recycled bottles.

    You really should go to Turkey. I went there last summer and fell in love! Definitely worth it. :]

    I finished watching a couple of months ago. I love Anthropologie but now I love it even more now. I work in retail with buyers/planners and I thought it was very interesting how the VPs of this company of been around for 10 or more years…that says a lot about the company, the vision and the love.

    That amazing chandelier has found a home at the White House. Obama purchased it for his daughter.

    Oh how I wish I got the Sundance Channel! I've been wondering about this show since I first heard about it. Maybe they'll put it on DVD one day?
    I did a post about those chairs on my blog last year, and the exhibition of them at the Rockefeller Center Anthro:

    I knew that crazy chandelier would be out of my price range, but I thought I'd look it up anyway…(I had guessed over a thousand bucks) imagine my surprise when I found out it was $4800.00 PLUS $250 for shipping! YIKES!!!! Guess I'll have to try it as a DIY project.
