Creekside Residence by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

It’s pretty rare for me to get completely blown away by modern architecture, it’s often the likes of Richard Neutra, Philip Johnson, and Frank Lloyd Wright that are the go to for a little architectural inspiration, but this home built only five years back by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson stopped me dead in my tracks this morning, it’s incredible. For the mid-century modern enthusiast this house is about …

Collection of work from Robin & Lucienne Day

From a personal perspective I can’t think of anything more heartwarming than coming across the entire life’s work of a creative couple. British designers Robin and Lucienne Day are a prime example of two different styles intertwining and complimenting one another, for those that haven’t been inspired by these two already they worked away in the post-war period as furniture and textile designers respectively. I’ve really enjoyed learn …

Furniture and Detail Shots by Pastoe

Pastoe are quite unique in my opinion, in fact I’ve written about them before when I highlighted the sm05 chair by Cees Braakman, but I’ve not really gone into much depth regarding their history and how this played a part in the furniture world. It all began in 1913 when businessman Frits Loeb decided to manufacturer chairs for his own shop on Ganzenmarkt in Utrecht himself in a small, traditional joinery shop. This quickly grew into …

Visual Acoustics, The Modernism of Julius Shulman

So this is quite a tough post to write really, I’m not sure where to start. I’ve been on and off writing about furniture and such over the past few weeks but this particular one is more about a film and someones work, it was all inspired thanks to an interview I came across last night. The specific interview revolved around a different photographer that goes by the name of Pedro E. Guerrero …

20th Century Furniture at Furniture Love

We’ve become a bit overcrowded with furniture on the blog, I seem to be finding a lot of inspiration recently in this sector which has probably been helped thanks to my foray into architecture. Particular studying the so called “International Style” which involved famous architects such as Peter Behrens, Le Corbusier, and Walter Gropius, it’s been fascinating to read up about the furniture inside their buildings and how it played a part …

Mass Modern at Wright Auctions

When I visited the Wright auction house website this morning I was blown away by the latest imagery that they’ve just put up, the smile on my face just kept getting bigger and bigger as I scrolled down the page. If you’re anything like me you’ll see why as we delve deeper into the different objects and the designers/artists that made them. For the last few years I’ve known that Wright holds an auction annually titled Mass Modern which …

Recycled Furniture by Patrick and Regitze Kerti

We’ve consciously tried to take a step back from the platform over the past few days and have really wanted to staple down the direction that we want to take in order to reach our end goal. Putting together the blog and shop has been an incredible journey for both of us creatively and the difficulty we’re sometimes faced with is keeping the fluidity of our message between the two entities. It’s just a case of reaffirming what we have in our heads so it …

Mid Century Modern Imagery from Frederick Barr

I’ve quietly continued to get inspired by the mid-century era yet in recent times I’ve not brought anything across onto the blog in correspondence with this. Today I felt it was about time I stopped hoarding my sources of inspiration and shared them with you all, so here we are with a collection of photographs that Fredrick Barr has lovingly curated over on flickr, which I’m sure many of you are go …

Design Pieces from aprogramthatprovides

Yesterday I stumbled across this cool little tumblr site that sells different pieces of design titled ‘aprogramthatprovides’, most of which are right up my alley. A few that I’ll point out straight away include the salt and pepper pots by Enzo Mari that are featured in the 5th image from the top. I haven’t come across these before but it was designed for Zani and Zani in 1986, they’re actually made out of steel and used to come in a set of 6 to hold oil …

Hiroshima House from Suppose Design Office

The Japanese designers never cease to amaze me when it comes to architecture because of the sheer lengths they will go in order to connect their homes to the surrounding environment. This innovative house from the quirkily named “Suppose” design office attempts to bring the outside inside, implementing an interior sand floor with raised beds that form the traditional areas of the home. At a first glance it’s hard not to question the practical …

Collection of works from María Aparicio Puentes

Time for a little visual arts now as we visit the work of Chilean creative Maria Aparico Puentes and her mixed media imagery. By combining film photography with textiles Maria curates a playful yet eye pleasing series that emphasises the geometry found in these wonderfully taken black and white stills. I was amazed to learn that she actually hand stitches these alternations to the …
