: : red.house's Swedish representative, my good friend .tina. reported to me from the Stockholm furniture fair last week. I completely fell in love with Swedish company .wis design. I had to show several examples of their products. their table manners work station desk, with a relaxing lounge area, their beautiful proper lamp with gold fabrics, and dot floor lamp.
this is only the beginning of .tina's. wonderful finds during the fair. I will be back with more soon.....
: : I had a fabulous Saturday, exploring areas new areas of Cambridge with my lovely friend .maiya. I had read in .lisa de john's. sneakpeak of her home on .designsponge. about a furniture store in Cambridge with a great mid-century collection, called .reside.
so, .maiya. and I ventured out...and ended up spending the whole day browsing cute furniture stores, and eventually ended up at the new marimekko store. I had been wanting to see that for quite some time now.
: : I received an e.mail this week from .chris masci. about a very exciting initative, the organizers of the .south end open market. in Boston are planning to start an open market in Providence this year...and they're looking for vendors. If you're interested contact them via e.mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
: : swedish textile company livstycket has so many wonderful patterns for fabrics, rugs and more. unfortunately, very little is available to view on their website. these pictures are taken by .anneli. owner of cosas, a swedish online design store. there will soon be more pictures available on her site as well as opportunities to buy their products. thank you .anneli.
: : last week was stockholm furniture fair .I've been updating myself through swedish blogs that have been covering the event. I was happy to read about marimekko's new spring collection . happy, bright and bold, as always...but with a fresh approach. I really like all the green!
: : well, granted it has been a very mild winter.....it has been very cold on my bike in the mornings these past couple of weeks. but this week it's been getting warmer and the ice on the charles melts a little bit more everyday. so, with spring around the corner...I started thinking about what to plant this year. I think it's going to be basil, oregano, cilantro and mint...and of course I'm hoping for green peppers on my plants that survived the winter.
crib candy have a couple of fun options for smart ways to organize and display planters. check them out right .here.
: : I had the opportunity to visit the .contemporary art center in Cincinnati. while I was out there for a couple of days last week. their current graphic content exhibit is amazing!!! .charley harper., .malcolm grear. and .ryan mcGinness. all wonderful artist who's work i have encountered before but I wasn't familar with each individual artist. I especially fell for charley harper's work. so much humor, curiosity, playfulness and of course, attention to detail. above are some of my favorite pieces. it's really worth seeing these in person because you need to be up close and look at it for a while to notice all the details. notice the frog eating a smaller frog?
I also like the wonderful organic, flowing forms of .ryan mcGinness. you might already be familiar with his "icon language".
I'm off for this years only weekend of skiing! let's hope for some snow at least....
back next week! have a great weekend!
