HANG Ask any grandma circa 1973 if macramé would be hot in 45 years, and she’d look you dead in the eye and say, “Of course, sweetie.” And she’d be right. The old-school craft is currently mid-renaissance, and Little Feral’s colorful textured pieces deserve a primo wall spot. $29+ at

SLEEP Best way to get through the rainy season? The Punxsutawney Phil method: sleep it all away. Venice Beach’s Parachute is known for its silky-soft sheet sets in percale, sateen, and linen. The rapidly growing company expanded to Portland last summer with a Nob Hill shop that’s as pretty as its inventory. $109+ at

ILLUMINATE Ditch that weird torch lamp you’ve been carting around since college. Any room gets an instant adult makeover with lighting from Cedar & Moss. Designed by Michelle Aaro, a former Schoolhouse Electric bigwig, these elegant lights are the love child of Bauhaus and midcentury modern. $109+ at

COOK Master the art of the omelet with DaTerra Cucina’s super-slick, ceramic-coated Vesuvio frying pans. Made in Italy, the chic, lightweight skillets are designed and imported by a Lake Oswego couple who flipped for Italian ceramic cookware during their family trips abroad. $89 at
