~ We are absolutely humbled by all of the love and support we have gotten at The Curated Object. The generosity and well-wishes of talented individuals bring us inspiration and remind us that gratitude is the ONLY attitude ~
The Curated Object would like to take a moment to extend our gratitude to the editors at THE MAGAZINE ANTIQUES for their generous ACCOLADES and for adding us to their ONLINE RESOURCES. For years we have been enamored with their intellectual and aesthetic prowess and are always inspired by their commitment to cultural education. And as a not-for-profit venture we appreciate the kind gesture, which means much more than they probably know. We humbly offer our thanks.
“The Curated Object will become an important resource for collectors, designers, journalists, and enthusiasts from across the spectrum of design. At last, the design world will have its own clock.”- ELLEN LUPTON, Curator at the Cooper-Hewitt, Design Journalist, Writer, Critic and Proprietor of E.Lupton.com
We are so grateful to Regina Yunghans Kraus at APARTMENT THERAPY who found a moment to stop by and pen her thoughts: "Design inspiration for those of us who are "interested in decorative objects and those who find our engagement with them compelling," The Curated Object is a one-stop shop listing current decorative arts and design exhibitions. The blog also serves as an incredibly inspiring little browsing experience that's proven to be an awesome resource of beautiful design objects that inspire. The following is just our further curated selection from their already well-curated objects"
Our hearts pounded when we read our review in ZINK MAGAZINE's Design Issue "It's the latest cyberporn for design voyeurs: The much-anticipated site The Curated Object is where journalists, curators and lovers of expertly executed objects are finding the latest design and decorative arts exhibitions to ogle. Consider yourself addicted."
JESSICA HELFAND sent her good wishes and an observation at DESIGN OBSERVER...
From JEN RENZI, the fabulous former EDITOR at GLAMNEST : "I just discovered this site and I’m already hooked. Devoted to the decorative arts, it has a comprehensive international calendar of design goings-on (like the Mint Museum’s cut-glass show, below), great reviews of said shows (with tons of photos, just in case you can’t see in person), and a bazillion links to indispensible design resources. I even love the shout-outs from esteemed designerati on the site’s left-hand nav! It’s a juicy gallery guide–and so much more."
LISA VINCENTI, former EDITOR-IN-CHIEF of INTERIORS MAGAZINE offers her blessing: "Far too often, the internet steers us in the wrong direction or inundates us with unwanted information. The Curated Object is a welcome newcomer scouring the globe for exhibitions of wonderful things, something I never get enough of. Few other design or decorative arts resources are as comprehensive or helpful in sorting through the clutter. This is a site I'll return to again and again."

JONATHAN BELL at THINGS MAGAZINE offered good wishes and a nice mention.
“If you’re like me, you find great pleasure in seeing interesting objects and physical forms. Throughout my screen-laden days, I take great joy in experiencing the effects of beautifully (or peculiarly) defined shapes, materials and textures. It may be a tightly woven coaster made of reclaimed Chinese magazines or the beautiful curves and weight of highly designed teapot that gives some very concrete solace. Sometimes the variety, rarity, expense or circumstances of great objects make them difficult to have close enough to be appreciated. Thankfully, a wonderfully robust resource just made its way to my inbox and I couldn’t be happier. The Curated Object is an extremely rich listing of object-centric exhibitions around the world, from archeological to artistic, functional to superfluous. I’m looking forward to Silversmiths To The Nation. – RANDY J. HUNT, Founder and Proprietor of CITIZEN SCHOLAR
What surrounds us, especially what we choose to be surrounded by, composes our memory palaces. The Curated Object reminds us of the wonder of things, their character and craft, and their unselfish sense of time and place. It is a rich resource worth revisiting to help gain the kind of orientation that only objects provide.--NATE BURGOS, Designer, Writer, Collector, Founder of DESIGN FEAST
