If you have a physical or visual allergy to concrete walls and ceilings, big picture windows, beautiful wood floors and hip furniture, you might want to avoid the Casa Pocafarina home in Girona, Spain designed by Hidalgo Hartman.

Live Modern: House in Eifukucho

We happen to think a large part of modern design and architecture is helping people create a home oasis where they can retreat, relax, feel their most comfortable and creative and recharge before having to go back out into the world. Not all architecture has to do that, but it — Continue reading

Live Modern: Schiller residence

We didn’t think we’d ever find a home with architectural photography that would rival that of our favorite home we featured of 2011, the House in Cadiz, but the Schiller Residence located in Israel is vying very hard for our affections.

MARSET’s TAMTAM Suspension Light

Digging this suspension light fixture called TAMTAM from company MARSET. We like how it’s glossy and comes in an austere black or a more colorful version. Like how it feels heavy, almost too heavy for the thin strings that hold it up. We like how this would be a definite — Continue reading

Food/Design: Pitfire Pizza

There’s a saying in design (we’re paraphrasing): “If you can’t change something, make it bigger. If you can’t make it bigger, make it red.” Now we don’t mean to imply that the giant red pizza oven wasn’t painted red intentionally, we’re just saying it certainly sticks out, doesn’t it? But — Continue reading
