Melissa Borrell Pop-Out Jewelry

Well known for her
Pop-Out Pendant, Melissa Borrell now has an extended collection of colors and shapes to add a bit of modern elegance to any outfit. New colors and shapes are available on her online store, with my favorite being the gold pieces. (I had the pleasure of visiting her studio a while ago to see the full scope of her designs, and I do have to say her sculptures were also really impressive…)

“Melissa Borrell creates innovative jewelry and decorative home accesories that emphasize the interaction between an individual and an object. Her designs have taken the form of wall coverings, sculpture, textile design, lighting, home accessories, and jewelry.”

White Fishnet (limited edition), 2006

I love, love, love this chair. Too bad it’s got the ‘price available on request’ tag- that pretty much means that I definitely can’t afford it.

“This chair is hand-made by Marcel Wanders through his studio in the Netherlands, in a limited edition of 20 pieces. A Certificate of Authenticity is provided.”

materials: aramid and carbon fibers; epoxy

33″ x 14″, height 29.5″

Reclaimed Patchwood Cube Cabinet

Maybe I’m crazy, but I’ve always been one for the more eclectic look at home, and maybe that’s why this cabinet caught my eye. I like how it has a relatively modern structure overall, with the different types of wood being the interesting thing about it…and I think whatever pieces surround it in a home would determine the classification of style- if you put it with country rustic, it would definitely read that way, but juxtaposed with something modern it could be a really unique modern piece.

“…handmade from barn wood, molding from houses and beaded board. This unique accent piece is a patchwork quilt of interesting patterns and textures handmade by Georgia artist Margaret Taylor. Combining rustic material with practical and modern design, this sturdy steel patchwood cube will be an ideal storage piece in the dining room, bedroom, bathroom, entry way or kitchen.”

Citizen: Citizen/JimmyJane/Filus evening of Design Therapy

Last night I attended a great event in Los Angeles at All Purpose (a great up and coming menswear store) sponsored by Citizen:Citizen and the endlessly charming Philip Wood. Also in attendance was super talented designer Cory Ingram of the Crude Line, and the design/engineering genius Ethan Imboden behind the little steel line by JimmyJane.

It was refreshing to see all the lines in person and get to meet the minds behind the designs.
