LoveShackFancy, a Chanel Diner Comes to Brooklyn, and Mimi Thorisson for Anthropologie

Welcome to TGP Tidbits where we round up the happenings and our musings of the design industry each week. This week we take a look at the incredible home of LoveShackFancy founder, Rebecca Hassel Cohen, a Chanel Diner coming to Brooklyn, and the Mimi Thorisson collection for Anthropologie. Written by Natalie Aldridge.


Marking ten years since the launch of LoveShackFancy, founder Rebecca Hessel Cohen has given an insider’s look at her romantic and maximal West Village home. Adorned with frills and florals, this immensely popular brand stands as an unapologetic celebration of romance. Thus, it’s hardly unexpected that when Rebecca Hessel Cohen, together with her husband and business partner Todd Cohen, undertook the transformation of a dreamy townhouse.

Beginning over five years ago, their journey evolved into a tale of grand affection characterized by ardor, luxury, and the art of the hunt. The pair enlisted the help of Parisian architectural firm Gilles et Boissier and interior designer Benjamin Vandiver to bring the pair’s vision to life. The result is something out of a perfectly pink fairytale with ultra-feminine florals, chintz galore, French flair, and of course, a collection of over 154 antique ornamental light fixtures throughout the home.

Let us not forget the pink laundry room and the to-die-for closet, which is seasonally styled with the “newest and pinkest” LoveShackFancy pieces that Rebecca is loving. She then pairs the pieces with her favorite (and very pink) accessories. You can see more via Instagram and Architectural Digest.

A Chanel Diner Comes to Brooklyn

There is nothing quite like a New York diner! Between September 8th and 10th, Chanel enthusiasts will have the opportunity to attend the Lucky Chance Diner and partake in a unique event commemorating the introduction of the Chance Eau Fraîche perfume.

The diner will receive a total Chanel makeover featuring interiors adorned in shades of pink and green, a pink double-C logo clock, a designated napkin holder embellished with the brand’s logo, and more. Think of a classic 1950s diner with a Chanel twist! Unfortunately, there will not be French fries, but the team at Chanel has promised complimentary soft-serve ice cream, small bites, and beverages.

Taking up residence at 225 Wythe Avenue, the Lucky Chance Diner will temporarily occupy the former location of the renowned Wythe Diner, adding to the historical significance and intrigue of the event. While reservations have quickly filled-up, the event does welcome walk-ins.

Mimi Thorisson for Anthropologie

The arrival of autumn is imminent, and here at The Glam Pad, we are brimming with anticipation for the shift in seasons. At the first sign of a cool breeze, a feeling of rejuvenation and hope emerges. It’s akin to casting off a layer to welcome something even more promising, much like a tree gracefully shedding its leaves.

In the autumnal spirit Anthropologie has announced its release of an exciting collaboration with French born and Italy based cook and author, Mimi Thorisson. Known for her cherished cookbooks including A Kitchen in France, French Country Cooking, and Old World Italian, Mimi Thorisson has channeled her unending curiosity and deep enthusiasm for the exquisite culinary traditions and enchantment of Italian cuisine into her first-ever tableware collection.

Old World Italian

Much like an Italian village, the collection is comprised of earthy tones, classical beautiful motifs, and old-world silhouettes. Thorisson’s approach was to craft an array of welcoming and cozy tableware, setting the perfect ambiance for an unforgettable evening and embodying a well-lived life. Take a look a some of our favorites of the collection! 

The full Mimi Thorisson collection can be shopped here.
