Crepax Cabinets

Holy. This alone would make a room. I mean that- you wouldn’t need anything else eye catching or stylish if you had this (which is good because you might not be able to afford anything else).

“This piece of furniture features the artwork of graphic artist Guido Crepax (1933-2003), who was hugely influential in the development of European comic art in the second half of the 20th century. His most famous storyline, featuring the character ‘Valentina’, was created in 1965.”

Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp

I love the scale of this floor lamp.

“The Tolomeo design begins with a heavy base and ends with a matte anodized aluminum diffuser that swivels 360 degrees and can be easily turned with a cool-to-the-touch steel handle. In between, the lamp’s dual-arm body adjusts by loosening and tightening the central and bottom joints, and steel tension cables provide infinite positions in which the lamp can be held. The Mega comes with a 17″ parchment shade that reaches far over a sofa or bed.”
