i have long been a fan of christien meindertsma and flocks. (the sweaters with sheep identity cards are brilliant.)
these pics of a yarn investigating trip to kyrgyzstan are so cool..I have long been dreaming of a textile tour to that part of the world. i want to have that same car and pile it high with my finds! i would also love to have one of flocks amazing poofs!
i was reminded of this chair by the nytimes coverage of maison et objet. it would be so fun to pick the books to fill it! designed by nobody & co, the collaboration of a art director and a copy editor "who have decided to venture in the coloured, substantial and three dimensional world of design." how great would it be in a lobby?
this bike from free city would be such a great christmas present! if only i had more places to ride. I have a sad vision of this awesome bike sitting in the driveway next to my knitting machine and old paint cans.
i love these african baskets. my favorites are made in kwazulu natal, south africa. the colors are so beautiful, and are achieved with natural dyes! i would love a bunch of them on a table.
les indiennes was the subject of one of my first posts and in this crazy shifting design world i still feel the same way about mary mulcahy's beautiful hand blocked textiles.
check out their new online inspirational flip book! the over size dots are brilliant...
i am so excited they are now producing wallpaper! the scale is great.
i love design, but sometimes working in interior design can be trying... which is why friday evening saw me leaving the rite aid with as much beer as i could carry and a newsweek on healing the world.
i think this photograph is so beautiful, i love wax prints.
i am really trying to think of a design service project, any thoughts?
