“Recession Proof” by Earnest Sewn

Now through January 2nd, Earnest Sewn’s shop on Washington Street in NYC will be offering up “Recession Proof, a way to encourage some consumption in this rigid economy of ours. Everything costs $50 or less including Dents driving gloves, Case & Sons knives (pictured below), and some house pieces.

Not a good enough bargain yet? You can also get one percent off for every canned food item you bring in (up to 20 percent), with donations going to the Food Bank for New York City and New York Cares.

Wow, you get to feel good about yourself and get a good deal when we need it the most.

Design: I.M. Pei’s Museum of Islamic Art

I.M. Pei, for anyone who doesn’t know is a Pritzker Prize-winning Chinese-born American architect and is known as the last master of high modernist architecture. Rising on its own island just off the city’s newly developed waterfront corniche, Pei’s Museum of Islamic Art is the centerpiece of an enormous effort to transform Qatar into an arts destination.

The museum will house manuscripts, textiles, ceramics and other works mostly assembled over the last 20 years and has emerged as one of the world’s most encyclopedic collections of Islamic art. The origins of its artifacts range from Spain to Egypt to Iran, Iraq, Turkey, India and Central Asia.

After the jump, take a look at some of our favorite images of the Museum.
