Lost & Found furniture collection by &made

Each piece of &made ‘Lost & Found’ collection has been rescued from the streets and regenerated and produced into furniture. This collection is now available on commission for bespoke order.

This is just a great initiative marrying design and recycling.

Wallpapered furniture by Bryonie Porter

Loving this idea of wallpapering furniture.

Bryonie Porter creates these beautiful papered pieces using wallpaper on antique and modern furniture. Using a water-based (environmentally friendly high gloss laquer) she transforms sometimes humdrum pieces into stunning works of art.

Wallpaper used on this pic is by Timorous Beasties, a studio I have already blogged about a while back.

Remix of microphone as light fixture by Re-Surface

RE-SURFACE produces a range of hand-crafted lighting and interior décor objects with art at heart, and design in mind.

I just like their SOLO re-mix of the classic microphone as light fixture to create a nice atmosphere or to hang above a MetroFarm DJ table for reading disc labels.

Make your own floating message

Just because I felt the same and I would not have been able to express it in a better way, here’s a very inspiring post from one of my favorite blog ‘Oh Joy’.

‘I’ve been sort of obsessed with giant mylar alphabet balloons for a few months now so when I saw this awesome window display in front of a Louis Vuitton shop yesterday I just about gasped out loud. Love the idea of professing a simple message or sentiment with a shiny and floaty alphabet.’

Textile cables by NUD

They are not handmade, nor coming in limited editions but surely you can work with these to make your home interior very unique.

NUD produces textile cables in a huge amount of colours which come with a white porcelaine socket for the Classic series and with 3 more original socket patterns for the Exclusive series. You can alternatively only buy the cords.

Any purchase will be sent to you in a NUD tube.
