patricia urquiola can do no wrong! patricia urquiola can do no wrong! (i apologize if you hear this too much around here but i think it’s the truth.) i love the rustically styled weaving and inspired crewel work on the chair with the high backrest on these crinoline chairs.

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.

you can find the teacup for sale online at vidafine, and be sure to check out the other cool product imm living makes on their website (i am enjoying those totem cups right now).

the super-talented, tokyo-based paper artist mayuko fujino (who you may remember from a previous interview here) now has an etsy shop, where we all can marvel in her intricate creations. yay!

she uses washi paper and collage techniques to create her (so very cool) artwork.

she’s got a website and flickr stream too, for more papery goodness.
