In 2012 a young Californian couple, Courtney and Laren, followed their hearts to Africa for work in the humanitarian sector and they fell in love with the beauty of the indigenous materials and craftspeople they encountered. Born from that was Rose & Fitzgerald, an art, design and craft studio based in Kampala, Uganda. Inspired by the beauty of an old land and its people, and captivated by the humanity and soul of handmade objects that each maker weaved, chiseled, casted or sculpted into their work, Rose & Fitzgerald mixes age-old craft with a simplistic, contemporary aesthetic to bring us a pristine collection of beautifully-crafted heirloom goods. I could happily find a place in my home for every piece in this collection, but for now, the handcrafted Leather Safari Pillow has my full attention (because, look at it). Made from a single piece of supple leather and designed to better with age, this heirloom-style pillow is finished off with a blond accent stitch and brass buttons and will bring timeless style and soul into any space.

With apologies to James Brown, the hardest working people in show business may well be ballet dancers. And at New York City Ballet, none work harder than the dancers in its lowest rank, the corps de ballet. During the first week of the company’s winter seasonClaire Kretzschmar, 24, a rising corps member, danced in all seven performances, appearing in five ballets, sometimes changing costumes at intermission to dance two roles in a night. But her work onstage did not even begin to capture the stamina required to be in the corps. Spending a week shadowing Ms. Kretzschmar was exhausting — she gave new meaning to the idea of being on your feet all day. Twelve-hour days at the David H. Koch Theater, the company’s Lincoln Center home, were hardly unusual: Company class each morning was followed by back-to-back-to-back rehearsals, with occasional breaks for costume fittings or physical therapy, and then by the hair-makeup-costume-dance routine of daily performances.
