the mark mothersbaugh home collection

frankly i think it is weird to say that devo frontman mark mothersbaugh has a home collection, but it is pretty clear that his avant musical talents are tantamount to his artistic skills. check out this sampling of graphic ceramic accessories, bold wallpaper and stylish rugs he’s made for his company walteria living.

from here it looks pretty edgy, urban and sometimes disturbing, but still very livable.

see the complete collection at walteria. learn more about mark’s music at his website.

dexter chairs and collection by amy lau

I think I have Halloween spirit right now. It is rather unnerving because I am afraid of ghouls and hobgoblins most of the time. This year, though, I seem to be unafraid of the macabre. I watch my spooky television shows with relish and feel bad when they are over, because I want more. Weird but true. Speaking of macabre, have a look at these great chairs from Amy Lau for the special Dexter collection she put together for the Met Home Showtime House event. Select pieces are now available at Spring in Brooklyn. They are made of ultraleather, with hand-embroidered blood stain detailing. A few have even been signed by the television serial killer himself.

Awesome.

I am also wild (wild) about these hand-thrown porcelain fingerprint plates that are from KleinReid for the same collection. Beautifully designed, they definitely do not give off a creepy feel like those chairs do. Even if you don’t watch the show, you still get the point.

ceramic urban gnomes by vitamin

London design house Vitamin has created a whole new way of dressing your modern garden with these urban gnomes. Made from bone china, they don’t possess the cheezy kitch the ubiquitous plastic kind has. They are much more sculptural and contemporary, which is either a relief or rather alarming, depending on your point of view…

These pieces if left in a leafy green garden will absolutely light up the night. I say two thumbs up.

Find the gnomes at Generate, and see more of Vitamin’s products on their website.
