Doctor's Orders: Jump-Start Your Retail Therapy With These 11 Pieces from Son of a Sailor

The launch of Son of a Sailor and the love story of its founders, William Knopp and Jessica Tata, go hand in hand. It all began when the creative duo started designing together, and just like that their artisan jewelry and lifestyle brand was born. Each piece is created in their Austin, Texas studio, where Knopp and Tata draw inspiration from the "the application of color, pattern, and geometry to materials with a rich history and story." In addition to offering goods from their own brand, they have also expanded to include pieces from other unique makers that resonate with them ... and with us, tbh. We're suckers for quality craftsmanship and beautiful design, which these picks have in spades. Now let the retail therapy begin — doctor's orders!

Your swanky bar cart just won't be complete without this coaster set made from vegetable tanned leather.

When you have a handsome wall clock that looks this good, you'll never lose track of time again. Unless of course you become hypnotized by the brass hands moving their way around the hand-carved solid walnut face. Completely understandable.

Any true candle lover needs a fancy match striker. Plus, this sculptural beauty will heat things up in more ways than one: not only is it an easy way to light your matches, but it will also hold them for you so you don't have to waste 10 minutes searching, and it just looks pretty darn good, too.

We're pretty sure if you invest in this handsome catchall made from solid walnut and inset leather, you'll never lose your keys again. Who ever said adulting was hard?

Picking up after your pet is a dirty job, but somebody has to do it. So why not do it in style with this natural leather bag holder?

Have you ever sprayed an air freshener only to immediately hold your nose and run out of the room because the strong stench of chemicals was just too much to bear? Leave the fumigating to the exterminators and use this room spray instead. Handcrafted with natural essential oils, you'll never have to look for an escape route to flee the toxic aroma again, and your pad will smell amazing, too.
