We're not big believers in all that "New Year, New You" nonsense. We're here to tell you that you're already fabulous and don't need to change a damn thing. But we do hope this year brings healing, happiness, and hope as we look at the worst parts of the last two years in the rear view mirror, after we've driven over it several times in a monster truck. So here's to you in 2022. This is our pick of 10 things that will help you feel good about the future.
We're unbelievably lucky to be surrounded by such a loving, supportive, creative community and, occasionally, we like to celebrate them. So, without further ado, please meet Carlos Rodriguez. An in-demand dog walker, animal lover, and much-loved member of the MAISON 10 family, he's rescued wild birds, injured dogs, and even saved Kong, our gorilla mascot, from the back of a truck. This is his story.
One of MAISON 10's more colorful artists, Chris Marmier has committed everyone from Cleopatra, David Bowie and superheroes, drag queens on a Saturday night, a cross-dressing truck driver, and Tom and Henri's wedding to paint. Born in a bi-cultural family and living in several countries, he’s fascinated by wildlife, but everything around him is a source of inspiration, whether identity, gender, sexuality, nature, environment, culture, or politics. And each of his artworks tells a story. In this, the latest in an occasional series of artist Q&As, he talks about the voices he hears in his head, making a home in Homesterdam, and words of advice for a Barbie-loving little boy.
There is exactly one MAISON 10 day until smoochmas, which means we hope you’ll soon be snuggled up with your most beloved of humans and/or animals enjoying a day of rest and excess. This is our hand-picked selection of perfect presents, ranging from $8 to $680.
