my beautiful backside sofa by doshi levien

gather round everyone and admire my beautiful backside! oh. oh no. i didn’t mean my backside, i meant the very modern sofa from nipa doshi and her design partner (and husband) jonathan levien for moroso. i am quite batty about the high asymmetrical backs, the gorgeous indian textile choices and exaggerated style. it was inspired by a painting called the garden of life.

permafrost design studio

let’s have a look at some of the terrific designs from norway’s permafrost design studio. i like the retro freshness and playfulness of the whole collection, which to me looks sturdy and substantial as well.

mummy chair

this bright beech wood and stretchy ribbon-festooned mummy chair, from dutch designer peter traag for edra, certainly looks like it will wrap you in comfort the moment you sit in it.

abr’s cul is cool stool

hah! i enjoy my designy (window) shopping posts so get ready for a few fun ones. look here at the reproduction rear end of michelangelo’s david, made new again by ramón ubeda and otto canalda, of spain’s abr. this fresh fanny is made of polypropelene and unlike the stone original is apparently quite lightweight.

xs chair by nick demarco

question: if you wanted a landfill in your living room would you want it in the shape of a chair? if so, your wish can become reality now with the xs chair by california college of the arts design student nick demarco. nick says the production pieces will be made of recycled plastic mesh, and that it can be filled with anything you own in excess, such as these handy vitamin water bottles seen below.

thanks for all the friendly birthday wishes and your patience with my traveling whims. like i mentioned before i tend to lose my writing schedule when i am out gallivanting around the lower 48. and sometimes i wonder if i put too much pressure on myself to produce posts on a daily basis. i am just going to keep going though, and hope i don’t lose any readers in the process. this is still as fun to write as it was nearly a year ago when i started, and i have in large part all of you to thank for it! i wish you all a lovely weekend and hope to see you next week to share in more bright and colorful things.

i am enjoying the details of this lola chaise: the tufted upholstery with versatile color palette, the retro modern sensibility and the knee notch, for our comfort.

monseigneur collection by philippe starck

yeh, i know philippe said a few very negative things about being a designer just recently, but i am willing to turn a deaf ear to it when i look at this monseigneur sofa he has made for driade.

very glamorous design from a guy who said that design is a dreadful form of expression, don’t you think?
