Eye Candy

Isn't this one of the most gorgeous tables you've ever seen? I love the limestone wall, the marble floors, the sleek design and all the wonderful gold accents in this picture. 

Wish Fulfilled

For Christmas, my wonderful boyfriend D.D. got me several great things, one of them is a gorgeous bell jar with a venus flytrap in it! I'm so nervous about making sure this little guy lives but I am so excited to start taking care of it.

Design Inspiration: Sol LeWitt

This is a piece by Sol LeWitt at MASS MOCA that I have fallen in love with. I would love to do something like this on a long wall in a hallway that I have in the apartment. Thoughts?

Desgin Desire: Glass Bed

Designed by Italian manufacturer Santambrogio Milano these pieces of furniture made from glass are something quite interesting, that you don’t see everyday. The collection uses the ultra-clear Diamant Glass that is produced by Saint Gobain. At a first glance I’ve thought that this design is totally impractical, (lord knows i love things that are impractical) but after I’ve saw that the design is made using superdurable tempered glass I’ve changed my mind. This past weekend, D and I went to ABC Home and Carpet and saw some fantastic glass tables and now I've found dream bed! This is what the Snow White of the 21st century would be sleeping on. 

Design Desire: Bottle Stopper

Check out these fantastic raw crystal bottle stoppers. I want the clear can get it here for a mere $55 bucks. 

A Mug that Packs a Punch

This is one set of steal knuckles that won’t get you busted in parts of the U.S. and Canada—but it still delivers the force of a punch. The wallop is in the handle coated in 14-karat gold. The ceramic mug is safe to drink out of...although the piece is intended as an object d’art and limited to 100. The latest in the capsule line of locally made accessories from P.A.D., the Los Angeles design duo comprising of architect Thomas Robertson of Ripple Design and Eli Bonerz, a founder and art director of the XLarge streetwear brand. This item is an A+R exclusive.
