Carved Wood Deer Head

So, yeah, there’s been a recent trend of antler-esque products in the past year or two, and it’s safe to say that thankfully all of the ones I’ve seen on sites have been of the not-real variety. This particular deer head is hand-carved from blocks of laminated basswood and is sure to add some atmosphere without the anxiety of the “genuine” article.

Features removable antlers and a keyhole hanger in the back.

Head: W 16″ x H 20″ x D 9″
Overall: H 42″ x W 29″

Convertible Picture Frame

These are nice and natural modern frames… and, they have an option to be a bud vase or a candle holder depending on which way you turn them over.

“In addition, they’re made of spalted alder…wood from trees that have naturally fallen in the forest; wood that has been left to age there. The result is a unique grain and color pattern. No two pieces are alike.”

Moose & Deer Head

When I was a kid I used to get the balsa wood dinosaur kits and I loved them. These are a cooler version.

“Playing with the theme of ‘reinterpreting the codes of bourgeois furniture’, these designs are a modernized, almost abstract version of the trophy head, executed in triplicate.”

ARBORESCENCE VINYL WALL GRAPHICS

These tree wall graphics can add a lightness and visual interest where previously there was nothing.

“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. ARBORESCENCE DESIGNED BY FRANCOISE AZAMBOURG: François Azambourg is interested in means of production and new practices. His work is qualified by a rational and meaning research about materials. His approach is voluntarily experimental. “

Stencils

This could be a good way to add visual interest to your walls without the weight of actual products or the cost of wallpaper.

porcelain sparrow

I can’t help liking this little bird. I don’t know how many of you like sparrows, but maybe you’d like them more if they were in porcelain on your bookshelf? You know, as a nick-nack type of thing, but better? I might have to get one just so he can be my ‘bltd’ mascot.

Have a blank wall and no cash? The Rasterbator let’s you upload an image which it rastorizes to your specifications (color or B&W, dot size and how large the image prints out) and then converts to a PDF file.
