    Marfa, TX, population 1,981, has become one of the hottest art destinations in the world, despite being three hours from the nearest airport and tucked away deep in the desert. Everyone from Solange Knowles to Robert Pattinson has made the pilgrimage in order to see installations like Walter deMaria’s Lightning Field, Donald Judd’s compound of massive artworks, and of course the iconic Prada Marfa. Hipster hotels and restaurants have sprung up accordingly.

    The town has also become a leading center of Southwestern design with local (and imported) craft workers creating one-of-a-kind collectible pieces — previously only available to those who could make the Texas trek. But now some of Marfa’s best boutiques are offering their wares online, thanks to Sarah Stodola, the editorial director of Strolby, an indie design shopping destination. Stodola gave us six of her Marfa picks, handmade gems ranging from muted minimalism to refined cowboy, that will bring some dusty sensibility into your apartment.
