Sometimes I get so overwhelmed by the beauty and design that people are capable of. Something in my belly fires up when I see objects, rooms and furniture that is innovative, interesting, functional and beautiful. It must mean I'm in the right industry! Here is a collection of things that have been churning my tummy with excitement lately.
Our spaces are getting smaller, we move around A LOT, and transport costs are getting more expensive. This furniture innovation is an absolute genius way to address some of these pressing issues.
This couch is just one of a few key furniture items design by Australian designer Nora Kinnunen. It's creativity like this that really floats my boat.

Oh. My. Goodness. Doesn't the description just make you want to weep with joy? German design studio Joa Herrenknecht recently shared their new range of beautiful objects at the Salone Satellite in Milan, April 2013. This floor covering is the most delightful and amazing thing I have seen for some time. It's modern, colourful, fun, unique, interesting....oh I could go on.
At this point in time it's not even being manufactured, and that makes me want to weep with sadness. I just want one. So bad.
There is something so cool about concrete. It's gritty and edgy, raw and industrial. Polished concrete floors have made a real statement in modern design, but Slab Homewares have taken things further, and make a whole range of products from this humble material, including lighting, clocks, jewellery, furniture and even clothing!
