The Company: Steph Mantis
The Founder: Steph Mantis
The Story: The Steph Mantis origin story includes a pizza parlor: She grew up in one (and a house too!) in Maine. Not surprisingly, she infuses that same affection for novelty and quirk into everything she makes and does it in a charming way—we’re talking vases that look like lamps and mirrors that pay tribute to Columbus’s ships. She also has a thing for animal butts. She transforms plastic ones—the rear ends of toys in their former lives—into crazy-cute magnets and key racks that are, you know, kind of a thing.
