How sexy is this barware by Michael Antrobus? It’s just made out of 1 flat piece of stainless steel, and a few twists and turns later, and only 1 single weld to keep it all together…voila! Now the only question is…how easy is it, really, to uncork a bottle with this thing.

I absolutely love London designer Phil Cuttance‘s Faceture project. He has built a machine to cast faceted vases, lamps, and the list goes on. It consists of pouring a water-based resin into a simple mould which hardens as it dries. If these images weren’t pretty enough, there’s is a video! Click HERE to see it, it’s so much fun!

I never thought much of macrame until I fell upon these pictures – this knotting style has been popping up right and left. I love the headboard! It gives a sort of bohemian/vintage look that’s so sweet. The plant hangers and lighting are also lovely. Is this trending? Because I’d be ok with that!

Today’s covet are these large tilting bowls designed by Staffan Holm, a Swedish multi-faceted designer. These will be featured at the Furniture Fair in Stockholm in February.

I’m surprisingly loving this graphically stunning tableware by CTRLZAK art an design studio for Italian brand Seletti. The inspiration here is the bridging of traditional chinese porcelain and European design aesthetic. Why not? It works! It’s sweet, hip, and with it.

Out in the open, these interiors show fun and simple clothes hanging solutions with nothing but rods and hangers. No doors. No fuss. No muss. And if you’re one for colourful clothes. it will add a ton of colour to an otherwise neutral background. I’m lovin’ it!

I love these vases designed by Decha Archjananun. Beautiful concrete vases support wire frames used to support your top heavy plants and flowers. Simple and lovely.

Here’s a guest post from Design Shuffle on stools by Joanna Salinas - because who doesn’t love those? So versatile. Enjoy!

Stools come in a huge range of sizes and shapes and functions.  These workhorses can be used for seating and in some cases, as small tables.  Versatile small stools are easy to move around a room or the house as needed. Counter height stools provide added seating in a kitchen, but this doesn’t mean they have to be boring.  Here are eight stunning stools that combine function and beauty and are sure to inspire many interior design ideas.

These fantastic patterned stools are a DIY project with wallpaper.  Think of them as inspiration to cover any wood stool in a bright, patterned wallpaper to turn a stool from functional to stunning. Straight lines will make the project easier or just the seat could be covered in wallpaper or fabric for a gorgeous new look.

A different type of stool, these alabaster garden stools by Belle Chase Home look like sculpture. Great for extra seating or small side tables.

This pair of stunning stools is vintage Danish modern, designed by Henry Rosengren Hansen in the 1950s, and perfect for any kitchen design. Look for vintage stools with clean, modern lines to capture this look.

Carved from a single block of oak, the Tonus stool by Aldo Bakker, is gorgeous—so sinuous and sculptural.


These spool shaped stools are designed by Italian brothers, Francesco and Marco Gilla, for their Bottega Montana studio. Available in natural or bright, sherbet pastels.


The Flow stool by Kenneth Young has great flowing lines created with bentwood. This is a beautiful wood stool. This one is sure to give you quite a few decorating ideas


The Henry stool by Alexandre Reignier is a beautiful mix of wood and metal. Recalling the wood slat bench by George Nelson, the Henry stool has a classic modern feeling to it.


The Avo stool is only a prototype (for now) but the simple lines and colors are fantastic. Designed by Rul Alves’ My Own Super Studio.

I was thrilled with I got a message from Arcadian Home Decor asked to do a fun guest posting on my blog. Arcadian Home Decor is the best source for home decor accessories at discount prices. Founded in 2002, Arcadian Home originally started selling decorative home lighting fixtures and lamps online, and has become one of the top Internet retailers for home lighting products.

Arcadian Home Decor wants to share with you  some of the world’s most bizarre chairs. They’re pretty strange alright…in fact the last chair, really does give me the heebeejeebees! So without further ado, I bring you, Arcadian Home Decor! Enjoy!

Home decor is a personal thing. Color speaks to the person it surrounds and home accessories define personality.  Many interior designers use neutral furniture to work into a room because of furniture’s higher price-point, but the rule-of-thumb is to have one piece of furniture that creates conversation. In this article, we don’t just have one…but many conversation pieces for you:


This “Funky Blast Chair” is a definite find from the UK. Interestingly enough, each of the 31 legs is made of American Ash and the upholstery comes in approximately 35 colors to work into anyone’s home decor.


The “Loops Chair” by Sophie Devocht was created by the same technique used for making carpet. In fact, one might have the feeling of being engulfed by colorful Berber when hanging out in this chair.

The “Revive” is a chair that offers relaxation in the form of light therapy. It combines blue lights with green upholstery. Meng-Jung Chuang, Furniture Designer, says that the idea is to emulate the feeling of sunbathing or relaxing outside.

Ellinor Ericsson’s “Tube Me Chair” is an interactive experience. This chair was exhibited at the 2011 Stockholm Furniture Fair and, just recently, in Malmö at the Sydform 2011. The concept of the “Tube Me Chair” is that the user can weave the tubes to conform to their comfort. They can sit on the tubing or even wrap it around them.
This lounger is made of bison-waxed oak and every bolt that holds it together is hidden. One might wonder how it feels to lay on hard wood, but those who have said that this chair is surprisingly comfortable.


Pawel Grunert designed this eco-friendly chair out of PET recycled bottles. If any of the bottles are damaged, they can easily be replaced. The “SIE43” was created for the Colombari Gallery in Milan, Italy for an exhibition.



The Octopus Chair is the first piece of Maximo Riera’s Animal Chair Collection.  Riera started this project approximately 3 years ago and it took over 30 people to bring this chair to life. The Octopus Chair is a limited edition and it is finished by hand. The only question is what home accessory would you pair with this chair?
