Light-Bug – Swarm Lamp

Like a light-bug shining from the grass, the Swarm lamp looks so organic as if nature had designed it itself. Due to the fact that it fits perfectly in a nature landscape, it would be perfect for outdoor spaces.

The genius of this lamps designed by Jangir Maddadi Design Bureau lies in its ability to attain suspended motion, a wingless fly hovering between the floor and the ceiling. The Scandinavian touch is given by the use of wood, together with glass and metal. The wood looks heavy and it could but the design out of balance, only it doesn’t thanks to the harmony of the design.

Nests by Tres Birds

tres birds workshop was selected by The Town of Vail, Colorado, to complete a kids playground for Lionshead Vail as part of the town’s artist-commissioned park series and program.

No doubt it created an impression on me, as they fit the rest of the decor perfectly, and they seem to be suitable for the playground. Tres Birds managed to mix the functional with the enviromental friendly in such a manner that the place is an attraction not only for kids, but also for adults. The nests ideea, together with the outdoor stuff, is not only innovative but also appealing to the eye.

Century Cupboard – History&Newspaper Mix

With only 100 of these unique limited edition sideboards made, the Century is a hallmark of history encapsulated within Italian 20th century newspaper headlines presented in an abstract display of black and white segments that are completely readable. This artistic cabinet is covered by the originals of the first few pages of some of the most important storylines of the day, whether political or cultural, providing a glimpse into the past all the while celebrating the present within its contemporary and minimalist silhouette.

Luxurious, Cozy&Warm – Fairy Tale Interior

Showcased at this year’s Maison & Objet in Paris, within an ethereal setting fit for an ice princess, is a series of new furnishings by Baxter within a set called “Scenes d’Interieur”. Designed by Paola Navone, the rooms overall imagery is one of a cold winter’s days, with the furnishings oh so inviting and looking incredibly warm and cozy. The deep tufting within the Diana Chester sofa (made with Nabuck Moon leather) just beckons you forward to curl up in it. Adding to this uber cozy expression is the white Mongolia fuzzy cushion tossed casually into the deep seat of the sofa. I love how the white Mongolia was carried through on all the chairs either through the use of pillows or, in the case of the Nepal Chair, in the upholstery itself.
