Lamps and Lighting by Foscarini

Lamps and Lighting by Foscarini

One aspect of my office that’s severely lacking is in the lighting department, I’m pretty fussy, as you can imagine, and I’ve had a problem finding good quality lights that don’t take up too much room. A Serge Mouille piece for example is beautiful, but they’re very large and the price is pretty off-putting, there has to be different options out there that I haven’t already seen before. Plus, it’s not that often that you get a space big enough in a house …

Furniture & Design Works by Atelier Steffen Kehrle

Furniture & Design Works by Atelier Steffen Kehrle

After a craft orientated week it seemed suitable to highlight work more rooted in the usual design process, and Atelier Steffen Kehrle has been on my list of ‘likes’ for a while now. Although I say ‘usual’, their work is far from it, with one of my favourite parts of their studio website being that they show how they make a lot of the furniture and objects, also where the ideas stem from.

Mogu-Kagu Wood Furnishings & Design

I hope you’ll excuse the influx of Japanese designers that have shown up on the blog lately, it wasn’t intentional. When you own quite a personal blog like ours you have to go with the flow and pick out what’s inspiring you at that moment in time, but it’s quite apparent that a lot of good work is coming from that side of the world. I’m constantly on the hunt for good designers that we can either showcase in the shop or feature on the blog …
