Modern Home Design special edition part 1

10 Jun 2011

Today's post is a small collection of design items that I've discovered the last weeks. I've created a new look for this that I can play around with. Love the flexibility that this gives me. A bit more proof that a CMS doesn't necessary mean it has be "template" like. There will be several of these kind of series that I'll come back to from time to time. Hope you'll enjoy my small selection.

Cloud Lamp

This design concept by Zhao Liping made the smile of the day for me. The floor lamp has a pull chain that resembles a tiny rain drop. A tiny detail that takes the whole design just a small step higher. Details, details you know.

Like mentioned above, not a real product yet. The cloud lamp would be available as a floor lamp and as a pendant type. Something that has real potential I think. FYI: you can rollover the images to see a second one.

I wouldn't use these "Low Chairs" myself but they have something that makes them cute and special at the same time. It is a bit like Elini said in the comments of the link above: "They look like cartoon people".

A cool collection of cushions that are characterized by the contrasting buttons in the middle — a different color on each side. High quality fabrics by Kvadrat.

I'm going to get a few of those Dot cushions. They are so nice and perfect for a color lover like myself. HAY is from Denmark and is a manufacturer of contemporary furniture, accessories and rugs since 2002. The company is named after its founder Rolf Hay. They are available in two fabrics, a variety of colors and four different shapes. I'm going to buy them at the excellent Belgian shop La Fabrika.

I saw these lights at Interieur 2010 and they immediately grabbed my attention. Passion 4 Wood is a Belgian company who is specialized in the import and distribution of lights, sculptures, art objects and other decorative items in wood from different parts of the world. Another great example that my great little country has a lot to offer design wise.
