Came across these ‘make your own wine’ carafes and I’m loving the simplicity and finishes.  Something about matte/satin finish paired with high gloss is just so classic and beautiful. The subtle recess of the center button with the pin hole LED illumination…muah!…just the right touch . Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. via http://blueantstudio.blogspot.com/

Small, quirky planters for the green thumb in you.  I love the way the wood looks almost malleable; like it had been pushed, pulled, and smoothed to create the form.

It is times like these when I wish I had some maternal instinct.  I yearn to put a baby in this high chair…if only to admire their chubby little baby thighs seated in this amazing piece of baby furniture.  Is that so wrong?? The lines, the materials, the colors, and the sentimental packaging all make for a well rounded and cohesive product. 

Cut, stacked, and glued sheets of paper- which are then hand lacquered to an amazing finish.   Something so simple and painstakingly gorgeous. A beautiful piece of art by who other than design house Nendo - check out the full story via Design Milk .

Reproduction bases….. !!!

I cannot express to you my joy upon finding these reproduction Eames chair bases. It is an absolute dream of mine to own something Eamesian- and as my pocketbook is a little thin, a reproduction base with my own designed seating atop will have to do. CHEERS!

What an amazing finish!  I love the satin-y smooth and luxurious texture this paint finish has.  This texture is such a gorgeous mash up between flat and glossy paint, it exudes ‘expensive’.

Supremely expensive olive oil-with the most gorgeous packaging to match!  I am particularly fond of the lovely delicate gold font…so seductive.
