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 …

Photography by Trevor Triano

It’s great connecting with like-minded individuals, other creatives that have exactly the same aesthetic as what we talk about here on the site and work to a similar style. One such person, who I got talking to this week, was Trevor Triano, a photographer based in Aspen but usually spends a lot of his time in New York. His works are both inspiring and varied, covering a lot of areas in the photography field. This is something that’s been …

Photography by Isao Hashinoki

Just lately I’ve had the urge to pick up my old Pentax film camera, when the summer months arrive it seems to be the perfect time to use it. The camera really is a brilliant piece of equipment and I’ve invested quite a lot of money in making sure the light seals were properly fitted and not worn, and everything was clean mechanically inside. It pays to make sure the older equipment is running smoothly, as the benefits can be extremely …

Interior Spaces by Kouichi Kimura Architects

I’m often stumped when it comes to architectural websites, usually the photography’s not quite there in terms of size or quality, which means I can’t showcase it on the blog (my standards are pretty high). Last week I decided to start a Pinterest of our own, follow us here if you’re on Pinterest yourself, with my sole intention being to create a mood-board type set-up for the website. This would give me an ideal place to group photos from …

Chocolate with Hazelnuts from Homegrown Swedes

December is a great time of year for fellow foodies isn’t it?! The cold weather draws us all around the table to consume a selection of heartwarming food. It’s not often that this topic reaches our blog, aside from the odd kinfolk inclusion here and there, but since Christmas is nearing I thought I’d mix things up a little and get into the seasonal spirit. Although Sanna Liedgren hasn’t reached our archive …

MUJI Meets IDEE, A Set of Case Studies

MUJI happens to be one of those interesting companies who offer a selection of products that sit quite close to our general aesthetic, but maybe miss out on the craft/independent element. They rarely highlight the original makers, possibly because a lot of the ideas are duplicated from the handiwork market in Japan, but I’ve got a lot of respect for what they’re doing at the lower end of the spectrum. They are really making people …

Homewares and Lifestyle Imagery at Stroll Store

It’s always great to see lifestyle imagery of ceramics, furniture and other objects as it gives you an idea of how these pieces function in a real world environment. It’s something we’re looking to add into our shop in the near future but it’s quite hard to master, we’ve tried lots of options, both 35mm and digital, but we’ve not quite found the happy medium that we’re after, luckily for us …

Further Imagery from Laura Dart

If I’m being completely honest with everyone last time I raided photographer Laura Dart’s collection of work I was instantly planning the next time we would return to the talented creative. I have however, in the face of diversity, kept a steady flow of other individuals complimenting the format but today I couldn’t resist bringing these across for all of us to enjoy. Amalgamating a handful of sets, I’ve pieced togeth …

Set of Imagery from Marcos Rivas

In the midst of design led content recently we’ve not lost film photography as an influence amongst our ranks, it’s just projects have been few and far between on our radar. So for this reason I’m quite chuffed to present this set from Marcos Rivas who we are revisiting for a second time now, having shared his work with you all just under a year ago. Looking back into our archives it’s refreshing to see the develop …
