Another yet sublime product designed by another impressive designer, Swiss Nicolas Thomkins. It seems that there is always just another unforgettable design to share here with you. There is so much happening in the field of design that keeping track requires devotion and a clear mind.
Some products though simply and effortlessly stand out. Such is the case of the Yin Yang chaise long, to which I felt immediate attraction for multiple reasons. It stands for so much I like, prefer and strive for. Excellence in quality, smooth design, inspired concept, to begin with. Continue reading
As Christmas is nearly upon us, and everyone – friends, family, and even a few pets – are coming to our place, I went searching for a sparkling display. Let’s face it, there’s nothing like a dazzling centerpiece to make everyone stop and stare while making sounds of Ooh and Ahh… That’s why I was so happy when I stumbled upon this beautiful crystal ice tree – Isn’t is gorgeous?

However meditating is something that involves internal processes and complete concentration, supporting our body correctly only adds to a smoother and better experience. Practicing yoga and meditation since about 10 years now, I must admit that I’ve only being using a pillow to support my spine.
This chair made from soft and durable fibers woven from the renewable water hyacinth plant found throughout Southeast Asia, has caught my attention as an alternative. Its design seems to be well thought off, addressing the fact that when one meditates, there is a clear need in feeling grounded, something that cannot be accomplished when sat in “normal” chairs.

Playing around with design can sometimes bring out the most creative of combinations. For example, when I think about a glass of nice Bordeaux, I find myself daydreaming about soft lighting and a relaxing ambiance… and there you have it, all combined in one beautiful product by The Netherlands-based design studio called Oooms.
What started as an assignment at The Design Academy, became a unique pendant lamp shaped like a wineglass. First, it serves as a lamp, but when the lamp is burned out (after approx. 20.000 hours), the glass can start its second life as a wineglass. How lovely, and Eco-friendly too. Continue reading
As we all know, you can’t celebrate Christmas without a tree. But what if your tree wasn’t a real one but actually a hand-crafted, Eco-friendly feather tree in colors of heather grey, white, and even pink… Tres chic! Continue reading
Despite me loving to feel that time somehow passes slowly, a wall clock is unmistakably always a part of our home interior. Since being reminded of the passage of time isn’t the most pleasant part of life – specially being an adult, I try to compensate by choosing the most appealing designs. You see my point?
The Lumino Wall clock from Neo Utility falls in the basket of my absolutely favorite designs, both for its practical and aesthetic features. Continue reading
These flower vases combine some of my ever favorite elements, all smoothly and beautifully combined in one. A play of textures, shapes and form in one design, made of beech, a kind of wood I truly like.
The award winning designer FX Ballery designed these wooden cylinders ending in cones, in his Paris studio. He describes them as a combination of thick and fine, aggressive and soft, solid and fragile.
I could not have described it any better myself. The repetition of number three somehow pleases me in intuitive ways. There is a sense of balance, completion and harmony in this design, which seems to satisfy my senses. Continue reading
Few could disagree that life itself is all about the perspective every individual has on its happenings. Where some see obstacles, others see opportunities. Where some see opportunities, others in fact create them. Some devote their lives into self discovery and full self realization. Others are busy creating a puzzle out of fragments of other people’s lives. Whichever the case, it’s all a matter of perspective. Continue reading
