teacup stool by mocha

speaking of teacups, for the children i am enjoying this playful oversized stool, inspired by alice in wonderland, by uk designer holly palmer for mocha.

tap for tea cup by imm living

the 3 fingerprints on the saucer of this tap for tea cup from canadian-based designer willie tsang for imm living symbolize the ancient chinese tradition of tapping on your saucer in silent gratitude to the person who refills your teacup. i love the story behind it and the pop of color on the plate.

new work from rachel horrocks

you may remember the wonderfully tactile, inspired wall decor from uk designer rachel horrocks that i wrote about a while ago. rachel has continued to develop the concept of fun felty artwork with this new series called decoflora. still crafted from 100% wool felt like her basic baroque pieces, the decoflora series presents a more feminine style and attaches with a simple removable hook and loop on the wall, allowing you to place myriad unique patterns on your walls.

4 lovely colors of flowers are available in sets of 5, 10 or 20 pieces. prices start at £38. see more and contact rachel on her website.


dodge station pottery

my schedule is lightening a bit so i think i’ll be able to write a tad more this week, starting with the serene and simple wares from the napp family of wisconsin’s dodge station pottery. this stoneware collection is handmade of course, and frankly i would not be surprised a bit if the scenery surrounding them informs the work; they are situated in a bucolic village in central wisconsin. i am a big fan of unadorned dishware (letting the food on the plate be the show), and these pieces are as rustic and natural as can be.

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.
