It’s been two years since I’ve visited the High Line in the Chelsea District and Meat Packing District of New York. Since my last visit, a couple of remarkable things have happened: One to me and one to the High Line. I had a stroke of luck to have an image I took of the […]

The Fab.com Pop Up Shop in Soho NYC is a much needed venue for one of the most successful online etailers of the past couple years. They are basically the retail version of Pinterest where only cool stuff is allowed.

The showroom located in Soho is about as cool as it can get. B&B Italia and Moooi bring you about all you would ever need to increase the design insanity level of your home. And I have to say, the staff in both B&B Italia and Moooi are absolutely fantastic, helpful, kind.

Tom Dixon skips the ICFF this week to open up an ambitious pop up shop? You bet. I went there first thing on Thursday, and I think I may have gotten there too early because there was no items to be bought. But what I can tell you is I’ve seen the most beautiful acid […]

NatureToWear by Ldesign

Nature to Wear

Desk by Janua

Desk by Janua

  Janua is a furniture brand I’ve never known until I started exploring this year’s IMM Cologne which happened this week. The collection is quite hard to pin down. Every piece feels familiar, but different. Every piece feels as light as air but also substantially hefty. I don’t know where to place the brand in […]

Bamby Chair

Bamby Chair

There are very few inanimate objects that I thought I might want to make love to This could very well be one of those objects. It has this nimble doe-like quality to it that screams touch me. At the same time, this chair has got solid hips that gives you something to hold on to. […]

      First, let me state that I don’t speak French, which means I probably have no idea what the original concept for these series of pieces are. But I love the pieces all the same. They are primitive, heavy, chunky pieces which make up a kitchen suite. In this suite, we have chairs […]
