Wright Auction House, Furniture by Børge Mogensen

Yesterday a fine fellow pointed me towards the Wright auction house website, a company that’s based in Chicago, Illinois. They’re known world over for specialising in modern and contemporary design, selling architect designed furniture from individuals such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Frank Gehry, Charles and Ray Eames, Alvar Aalto and Hans J Wegner.

Selection of furniture from Finn Juhl

In a bid to keep my mind off the shop for a moment, I went on a search for a little design inspiration this morning and ended up visiting the work of the late, great Danish designer Finn Juhl. Finn was known as an architect, industrial and interior designer as well as a master of furniture. As one of the leading figures that helped to define what Danish design is to us all today, it is both his vision and multifaceted career that we …

Maison Louis Carré by Alvar Aalto

Today I thought I’d bring over this imagery that I found last night thanks to my random perusing, it always leads me into good spots around the web. Usually I start with a designer of some sort, this time Alvar Aalto, and I head out with the intention to learn something new and end up finding an abundance of great imagery that I can showcase here as well. Luckily it comes with a great story, such as this post which is …

The Artek Open Archives

My loved ones over Christmas were kind enough to buy me several books that I’ve been yearning for over the past year, firstly ‘Dieter Rams: As Little Design as Possible’ which I’ve yet to dig into, and also ‘Alvar Aalto, Through the Eyes of Shigeru Ban’ which is one I’m currently reading. Even though it’s extremely long, a few paragraphs into the book and it got me thinking about his career and what influenced it, a company …

Imagery of Hans J. Wegner & his creations

Not too long ago Mark brought across some really beautiful looks at the work of internationally celebrated Dane Hans J Wegner, so I thought it would be a little while yet until we’d be visiting his work again. However I was browsing through a few of my favourite destinations on the web earlier and came across these charming photos that I hadn’t seen shared elsewhere, so I couldn’t resist snapping them up. They basically …

Admiring the Work of Barbara Hepworth

After delving into the archives of ceramicist Toshiko Takaezu almost two weeks ago I felt it would be fitting today to admire another creative from the past, this time visiting the work of sculptor Barbara Hepworth. Those of you who are familiar with Barbara’s work will acknowledge we are delving a little further into history with her passing in 1975, however I don’t think her creations are particularly dated, more timeless in …

A conversation with Josh Vogel by YHBHS

I wouldn’t say that we regularly point out interviews on other websites, usually we save this for the twitter account, but last night I got really into this piece by a blog titled You Have Been Here Sometime. I wouldn’t say it’s an interview in a normal format, it’s pretty much a dialogue between two artists/craftsmen, one being the interviewer and the other being Josh Vogel. Now if you don’t remember Josh Vogel has made an appea…

Selection of Items from OUTBOUND, Japan

I came across this stunning set of imagery today courtesy of Japanese store OUTBOUND. I’m pretty happy that I did, the best source of inspiration always comes when I trickle through other inspiring websites and find the original source, it leads for intriguing imagery and other great content once I’ve fully researched the background information. As far as I know this place is owned by Kazuto Kobayashi, an …

Admiring the work of Lake Flato Architect Studio

I think when you love everyday design like we do, it’s inevitable that you’re going to fall for architecture in a big way. Much like all the other elements we share here on the site, architecture provides a big dose of inspiration for us on a daily basis. Particularly in the morning when I tend to browse around for some breathtaking homes like these ones from Lake Flato, all of which motivate me to work hard so one day I can …

Architecture Photographed by Grant Mudford

This is a prime example of two creative subjects coming together to form a great marriage, as seen here with this series of photography based on architecture by Grant Mudford. Incredible to see such great photography coupled with the admiration for the buildings themselves and how they’ve been designed, you really do see them in a whole new light. Grant is a Los Angeles based photographer who first studied …

Inspired By Series from Shwood Eyewear

Lots of different brands seem to be jumping on the bandwagon, connecting with creatives that inspire them in the hope it will empower those ever so important customers. Personally I think it’s great to see, when we promote creative industries I’d like to believe that everyone involved in that specific industry reaps the benefits of being showcased. I’m a big believer in one thing leading into another, call it karma if you …
