Gauge Poster by Marten Lindquist

Will we get hatemail for posting this on the 4th of July? I promise, no political statement is intended, I just think this is a clever play on a familiar graphic. Perhaps a few of you will agree.

“Marten Lindquist won the international Brushstokes competition with this brilliant graphic. We have a few of the posters, printed in Sweden, from a limited edition of 200, signed and numbered by Marten. In addition, we sourced some brilliant black (to match the poster) posterhangers, an ingenious invention from Denmark, so you can buy the poster and solve the perennial problem of how to hang it (framing is so expensive, and Bluetack so…tacky).”

Home Sweet Home

Like Katie, I’m surprised I haven’t reached total annoyance level with vinyl wall decor. (What’s wrong with us???)

Anyway, this “Home Sweet Home” vinyl decor is something I’d actually put on my walls. It’s nice and large in scale (34″ x 4″) and would look quite nice on a sparse wall.

“Decorate any wall you wish with pressure sensitive application. Wall Words are not reusable. Made in the USA.”

Felt Rocks by Molo

“in their raw form, a felt rock is technically a lump of felt formed when small bits of wool fluff gather while making polishing wheels for optical lenses, spun around in a drum with them.

with steam and pressure, each stray piece of wool begins to entangle itself with others roughly creating a completely unique rock-like shape without the help of any bonding agents.

each felt rock is then carefully selected by molo and then finished through their own process.

felt rocks are solid all the way through, made out of 100% pure wool felt, and carefully dyed. they come in hand selected sets of 5 ( 2 natural and 3 grey, or 2 moss green and 3 grey ) and are packaged in a natural grey wool felt bag.

each one is completely unique with a different shape and size, although most measure around 4 – 6 inches across.”

Surikata by Maxim Velcovsky

The think I would like to live in the mind of Maxim Velcovsky. I would run, chase and play with little porceline meerkats all day.

PS. Have you seen what he did here with Jakub Berdych for Qubus?

Tobias Wong gold spoon

I’m posting this more as a news piece. McDonald’s has issued a cease and desist to citizen citizen for the Ju$t Another Rich Kid and Tobias Wong gold reproduction of their coffee stir stick–which I believe was originally discontinued in the 80′s due to its prominent use for ingesting the decade’s ubiquitous party drug.

So if you want one, you better get it while the gettin’s good!

“INDULGENCES directly comments on the creation and expansion of luxury products in today’s consumer culture, this often results in the production of many unnecessary items. this series attempts of elevate everyday and in some cases disposable items into desirable object.”

Domestic Wall Vinyls- Horse & Cat

Just when you thought the wall vinyl category couldn’t get any fatter, here comes along a couple of playful characters…(I think you could get away with tucking the cat into a corner somewhere, but you’d sure have to be committed to buy the whole horse).

“The objective of Domestic is to create collections of articles devised by designers, graphic artists or artists whose common denominator is to offer a means for the end user to freely participate. With Vynil, an alternative to wallpaper, the principle of the collection is simple: literally hand over to users who are invited to transform their interior into an area for expression and design their own decor. Thanks to Vynil, the wall space becomes the playing field for composition and into which one can put a lot of effort and invention. Beyond the practical interest it represents (no longer any need for glue or a pasting table); the Vynil collection enables new thought to be given to the place and role of the ornamental pattern in our interiors.”

Potato Queen II Wall Art

In light of things funny/fantastical…(and, think outside the box, why not add some whimsy to areas other than those delegated to kids?)

“These colorful wall graphics are part of the Vynil line by a French publishing house called Domestic. Domestic works with well-known designers to produce products that allow the consumer to contribute to the design. In this case, giant fantastical figures cut out of removable adhesive vinyl can be grouped or scattered around a room, based on your whim. The stickers come on 20 x 20″ sheets.”

Fuyuh Bamboo Laminated Ceiling Mobile

When decorating a room, there are so many opportunites to hang something from the ceiling, which helps bring height to a space. I always love finding great candle globes that hang, or beautiful lamp pendants. Sometimes, though, you need something that is just decoration, something so beautiful it doesn’t need an alternative use; simply something that looks good and will fill a void. Artist’s mobiles are usually the answer, and boy am I fawning over this one.

“Fuyuh was designed by Riki Watanabe in 1975. It is a classic Japanese design crafted by hand in a small Japanese workshop. The quality and details of the laminated bamboo are unsurpassed. Fuyuh is a small work of art, suspended in space.”
