Icon by Eric Morel

This is quite stunning and would make a powerful statement on a blank wall. It measures 15 inches high and is 9 inches wide.

One of today’s most familiar and traditional symbols in a dramatically updated form; the Icon is a provocative reflection of modern faith meets consumerism by Eric Morel.

Each set consists of a rubber Jesus figure and 4 nails.

Blik Wall Graphics (and Threadless)

I’m a big fan of Threadless.com, so it’s no surprise that I’d like the designs translated into wall art. I also really like the idea of taking a favorite excerpt from a book and putting it on the wall, which is completely possible…take a look- you might find something delightful.

Equal Area Map

Most of us could probably use a good look at this map- or at least post it up somewhere prominent to remind ourselves that there are many other places in the world. Not trying to be philosophical here, just suggesting some perspective.

“This map doesn’t just look good, it also serves a useful purpose. It is an Equal Area Projection, meaning that all countries are in correct proportion to one another in terms of size. This is rare in global mapping: maps generally illustrate their “mother” country as disproportionately large. Available in two versions. Version 1: yellow to red to purple and Version 2: (limited edition) green to salmon to brown.”

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?
