So summer picnics are great and all, but that huge blanket doesn't do much in the way of providing comfort against the hard ground. Consider picking up a striped throwbed from Hedgehouse before your next outing—the brand that specializes in pillows large and small, plus chic coverings, has their own dedicated pop-up shop in the West Village for the month of July.
The L.A.-based label was started by native New Yorker Beata Henrichs-Lieb. Aside from the pop-up, Hedgehouse can be found locally at places like Steven Alan Home and Calypso in Soho.
