MEET THE MAKER: MARIO LOMBARDO
Mario Lombardo is one of the most well-respected designers of our time and has influenced the national and international design scene for many years. His work is considered groundbreaking, demonstrates social relevance, and has been honored on hundreds of occasions with national and international awards as well as a monograph. From the outset, his work has playfully overcome stylistic boundaries and has performed a balancing act between different, seemingly mismatched, disciplines, creating new contexts in language, space, aesthetics, and materials. As a designer, Mario Lombardo has helped shape the style of an entire era, placed a focus on experimental and craft activities in the age of digital aesthetics, and has breathed new life into print media. It is a passion for craftsmanship that continues to this day. Clients including KaDeWe, JOOP!, Rosenthal, Mercedes-Benz, Absolut, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and others have gladly placed their trust in his work.
We love a great handmade purse and we love helping other women succeed. That’s why we carry Mercado Global’s handmade clutches and bags. They are beautifully designed, functional pieces, and the company is built around the philosophy of helping female artisans get ahead in life and work.
When you buy a Mercado Global bag, you’re not just buying a beautiful accessory. You’re also helping empower women in developing countries. Mercado Global shares details on their website about why, how, and where the bags are made. We love knowing the story behind our products.
We are most well-known for our home decor and furniture selection, but we also have a curated collection of handmade clutches and bags. We currently have a selection of clutches, handbags, shoulder bags, and pouches from Mercado Global and Tracey Tanner.
Tracy Tanner is a Brooklyn based designer and maker of handmade leather wallets, pouches, cosmetic bags and handbags. Her leather goods are simple, yet stunning. We just can’t get enough of them! Her Cobalt Travel Bag is one our favorites.

The team at Coveted Home has a soft spot for original, whimsical furniture. Especially when it has little feet. We probably discuss how much we love the store’s Oly footstool, seen above, once a week! It’s an instant conversation piece and very easy to love– we think everyone should have something like it. So, here’s a little round up we created of a few tried-and-true footed favorites.
One: Oly Studio’s Petite Kedan Footstool. Two Oly Studio Arthur Bench. Three: Arteriors White Lola Accent Table. Four: Oly Studio Ferson Half Round Table. Five: Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams’ Black Sheep Life-Size Statue. Six: Oly Studio Ajax Ottoman.
