California has this weird kind of pull with me that I really never expected. Back in 2016 I spent many weeks on a “design retreat” of sorts, visiting every Modernist piece of architecture I could find in Los Angeles and the surrounding suburbs. The Eames house, Stahl House, properties bu
Beautiful light wood furniture by up-and-coming furniture designer Liam Treanor, inspired Mid-Century architecture and Scandinavian modern.
Looking for some wacky and wonderful inspiration in the design field? Look no further than Al Que Quiere, it's been my go to site for a little while and I always seem to end up there through my reader. Although some of the designs and photographs are slightly off-beat for my personal style, you can'
I have an exciting project to share with you all today, it’s by the one and only Leslie Williamson who’s been a big favourite here on the site over the years. Obviously, with a website that revolves around design, architecture, photography and the like it’s going to be hard not to be influence
I felt it was about time architecture joined our creative content this week, so I went on the hunt earlier this morning to find either a recent build or a short film that would provoke a little food for thought on the subject. I'd not intentionally headed out with the modernist era in mind but once

Short film has been a little thin on the ground this week for the subjects we typically like to discuss here, so I'm pretty relieved to come across Gary Nadeau's latest project on behalf of Dwell, as they caught up with mid-century maestro Jens Risom. The iconic Danish designer took some time out to
After my recent book purchase, 'The Unknown Craftsman' written by Soetsu Yanagi which was adapted by Bernard Leach, it's been great to capture the essence of someone who makes by hand. It has also opened my eyes to the relationship between an artisan or designer and the finished product itself. Shou
I think the greatest compliment or recognition as a creative individual you can receive for your life's work is that it outlives you and continues to inspire others after you pass. One designer that refuses to go away in this respect is Alvar Aalto, who Jackson's are currently highlighting in a smal
Time for some more modernist architecture I think. I've been on the browse since wednesday when we highlighted Marion Berrin's collection of Le Corbusier photos and luckily this morning I came across another beautiful build, this time by Oscar Niemeyer. I say architecture, and of course it is, becau
After sharing the work of the late great sculptor Constantin Brancusi yesterday I felt compelled to search out another master if you will that is no longer with us. Given we've featured a good number of names that the history books won't let us forget, I found myself searching over a few that we'd v
I've always been somebody that asks questions, who likes to wonder why things have been made the way they have, so naturally I'm drawn to items that embrace an unconventional aesthetic. Which is why I was in my element this morning when I stumbled upon the ridiculously large archive of design object
