stylish, graphic iphone cases by threadless

Much love to the hubs, but I’ve been secretly meaning to replace my boring, hand-me-down black cloth case for my iPhone that he gave me with something splashy and fun. Frankly nothing has appealed to me until I saw these super cool cases based on 2 popular designs from Threadless, the beloved tee shirt company. These distinctive cases are compatible for the 3GS and 3G and are being distributed by Griffin.

The pale blue case is Birds of a Feather by Ross Zietz, and the canary case is Clouds Within the Thunder from Joe van Wetering. Either piece would make a terrific gift for someone who appreciates good looks and bold, dynamic style.

Find the cases for US $34.99 each online at Griffin or in person at Apple retail stores, and learn more about the talented artists behind these designs at Threadless.

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.

michelle stitzlein sculpture

whoa! found object artist extraordinaire paula tipped me off to these supercool moth series of wall sculptures, made from repurposed objects by ohio artist michelle stitzlein. these pieces are cobbled together in the most pristine way from old piano keys, tin cans, license plates and bicycle tires, among other things.

chalk chess by suck uk

i really REALLY want you to love this chalk chess set from the clever mind of william shannon at suck uk as much as i do. i love how you can use the pieces to draw the board and that you can take them with you anywhere. i wish it was distributed somewhere in the states, i think it’s a terrifically creative idea and wonderful gift for the chess lover you know.

it’s £12.00, and was expected to be in stock late last month. you should be able to get more details right here.


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.


vintage scale wall hooks

I love it when you can hang a hook on the wall and even when there is nothing on it you still have something of visual interest up there. These early 20th century scale hooks are a fine example. Since they are cast brass reproductions they aren’t working scales, but I still think they’re pretty cool.

The set of 5 pieces is $69.95 and you can find them at Signals.
