The Peace of White
Feeling particularly country chic this Monday? Here’s a selection of white aged mirror gems on eBay to achieve this vibe.
In our second look at the home of media notable Adam Joseph of LEGS media, The Inside Source encountered a few precious sacred objects nestled in corners. The first is a tribal mask he purchased in South Africa while on a commercial shoot. ”There are so many cool markets there and a gazillion masks to pick from”, says Adam of his difficult decision to choose amongst epic options. “This one just spoke to me”.
The cow on his windowsill is a sentimental find from attending a friends wedding in India last year. If you can’t visit the intimate little market in Mumbai called “Chor Bazaar” (where he found this), then how about checking out eBay for another authentic find from India? We found a few sacred cow figurines here.

In our never-ending quest to infiltrate cool spaces, The Inside Source visits LEGS Media’s Adam Joseph in his Brooklyn residence. Acting as co-founder and managing director of the multi-media studio, Adam is the master juggler of diverse projects. “One day we’re creating an interactive music video and the next we’re doing a holographic show” quips the digital sensei, “but hopefully we have more than one day to create each”. Recently dubbed as “a notable player in the world of experiential marketing" by Ad Age magazine, we were eager to see what inspires this man on the home front.
The most refreshing common denominator in his abode? Plants. Lots of them. “They bring a sense of peace to me. I’m also an avid orchid enthusiast” admits Adam. “It could take a year of giving them the right conditions to get them to flower for less than a month… and that’s a sense of accomplishment”.
We couldn’t agree more so we searched eBay for a few inspirations ourselves — including hanging macrame pieces and other creative terrariums to house your future home plants. Let the green thumbing begin.

One of the major finds this week on eBay was spotted by one of our curators, Pharrell Williams, who compiled a collection of things for his fantasy home. Behold an original Andy Warhol screenprint entitled Perfume Bottles (1982) available on eBay. Serious collectors only. For $90,000, you can take this piece of art history home.
If 90K is too steep a price, visit the rest of the Grammy winners suggestions at Finally Home. We promise, there’s much more affordable stuff in it.

This weeks selection is a daring, yet standout addition to any home. The original Flexsteel Thunderbird Couch is a brazen tone of avocado green — a midcentury find from 1965.
