I Love Lamp…

I Love Lamp…

We all love flat pack objects! They are eco-friendly with reduced packaging and we can assemble them ourselves and feel more involved in initiating the life cycle of the object. Not to mention, I'm obsessed with seeing how things are put together. Check out the Flat Lamp… "The lamp arrives — Continue reading

A Glimmer of Hope

Most likely…if you are reading, this you are a designer of one sort or another…if not, you are at least design-minded. I can not tell you how many conversations I have had with designers who are frustrated, burnt out, weary, tired, uninspired and otherwise on the verge of giving up — Continue reading

Now you see it, now you don’t!

    As a creative person and also one that needs a more formal work space occasionally, I have always been a fan of extremely adaptable and responsive work environments. Yesterday I stumbled across Clive Wilkinson Architects revamp for the VCU Brand Center in Richmond, VA.      Their work is idea driven and — Continue reading

The New Hilton

Just under three years old, the Matthew Hilton furniture line speaks highly of hand crafted work and rest comfortably between modern minimalism and nostalgia. I hope that you pop on over to his website for a slew of gorgeous images. Produced in small quantities, his growing collection of high quality work could — Continue reading

Everything Has Its Place

Ironic coming from someone who is chronically disorganised, but if anyone needs an extra little nudge to put everything back where it belongs, it's me! As someone who also has a habit of hiding away my decidedly un-sexy yellow trace in an ingenious location that I can never remember when — Continue reading

Are you a BookMarker

I'm quite guilty of "occasionally" writing, tagging, folding and popping in any random object laying around into my reading materials. As of today, I am going to turn things up a notch… with the BookMarker™! This is a pen/flag dispenser/bookmark/book strap all in one easy to carry object. Never lose — Continue reading

Zoë Mowat

I am jealous of Zoë Mowat for several reasons. Here are just a few… She is not afraid of color. or material. Oh. And of course has created a beautiful line of work that is wonderfully nostalgic (for the child in all of us). "Zoë Mowat works as a freelance designer — Continue reading

Chalkboard out, Whiteboard IN!

While the whole chalkboard/wall trend will always stay near and dear to my heart, the folks at IdeaPaint have really caught my eye. Maybe this would be easier to clean up if you have children that like to write on white walls. With a several different colors to choose from and — Continue reading

Memo Block… Sad but true

Memo Block… Sad but true

Maybe it looks like a wood piece, but is a big memo block (by kakuzai), printed just like wood.  Yes, this can be functional, because sometimes we need to write numbers, codes, etc… but, if you think where all that paper cames from, well it's a little sad. Anyway this — Continue reading
