We LOVE: Hand Carved Rubber Stamp by GreenGarden Stamps

Blush Chair by Sofie Brünner

Danish textile and furniture designer Sofie Brünner has designed the Blush chair.

Description from the designer:
BLUSH is a unique lounge chair that aims at stimulating the senses. Working from the concept of haptic design (design that stimulate the sense of touch), BLUSH has a contrasting and playful appearance that invites the user to explore the materials, construction and comfortability. The chair consists of a faceted hard aluminium shell in which a perforated pattern has been laser-cut. Using a brush binding technique, the holes are upholstered with strips of hand printed felt. This results in a soft and tactile front upholstery and a pixel-like upholstered back.
Overall BLUSH has a surprisingly austere expression that is softened by the blushing felt loops that flourish across the chair.

Eva Hild Ceramic Sculptures

'Influence, pressure, strain. These words have been the foundation for my current projects that comprise communicating the theme in large, hand-built clay forms. Delicate continuously flowing entities in white thinbuilt clay. They reflect varying degrees of external and internal pressures, and how, as a consequence, perception of inner and outer space is changed or challenged.' Eva Hild

Yayoi Kusama Installation!

Watch the application to every available surface of brightly coloured stickers in the shape of dots. The artist Yayoi Kusama created a brilliantly white environment (a blank canvas) where over the course of two weeks children who visited were given thousands of coloured dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space.  The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12 in Brisbane.

Eye Candy: Award-Winning Ceramic Tiles from Yiğit Özer

However, Turkish designer Yiğit Özer has come up with a new collection that completely turns the idea of ceramic tiles on its head.

5 Tips for Interior Decorating Your Studio

Seems like apartments are shrinking with the economy and we're forced to cram all of our wonderful ideas in smaller and smaller spaces! Looking to keep your studio up-to-date with a modern taste? We've got a few tips to keep you living in style without living in a junkie-like space.
Essential Choices
You're working with limited space. When you go out hunting for new items, keep in mind that they should feel absolutely essential to the feel of the room you're trying to create.  Don't splurge on simple ornaments, make the functional pieces of your apartment the ones that shout.  

Vicious Editing
Once you've already gotten the pieces you want, you must become a heartless editor.  Slash and throw away the pieces that are not needed.  In such a small space, even the slightest excesses create a feel of clutter.  You're looking to create a clean looking area.  Studios look dirty quickly.

One. Single. Theme.
When you live in a multi room space, you can theme different rooms as much as you'd like.  When you exist in a single space, though, it should flow with a single theme.  Not that color variations and hues should not change, but that there should be no confusion of message in the design.  Asian Zen theme?  Go for it, but don't add a dash of Modern Euro into it.

Define Areas
To give yourself a sense of space, clearly define areas in your room.  Despite it being a studio, there should be a distinct mentality of Bedroom, Reading Area, Kitchen, etc.  If nothing else, you don't want new friends accidentally standing in your bedroom uninvited.

Use the Room
The space itself will come with its own opportunities and challenges. Use the space, utilize dividers to clearly state differences.  Lighting, too, can be a way of identifying different areas in your space.

Most important to designing a studio is to believe that it is your space. We  prefer studios to one bedroom apartments, the unification of the room represents a unification of life.  No areas are seperated.  Whatever you choose to do with your space, own it.

Finally, have fun with the decorating and as we always say 'things we surround ourselves with should possess a soul, a story, and a purpose beyond mere decoration'.

We Love Food As Much As Design: Creamy Chocolate Tart with Grapefruit-Lavender Honey Soup

A delicasy for the lovely upcoming festive season!
Inspired by one of Boulud’s favorite candies, sugared grapefruit rind dipped in chocolate, this simple tart is delightful when paired unexpectedly with grapefruit soup. The citrus contrasts with the ganache-like chocolate filling, bringing out its rich, creamy flavor. Dollops of cinnamon-spiced whipped cream are an added touch.

Frédérique Morrel

Boxed loves anything that is out of this world and HANDMADE! When we laid eyes on these life-size taxidermy-esque sculptures by artist Frédérique Morrel we had to share them with you!

Inspired to create her abstract yet stunning menagerie after her grandmother’s needlepoint of a wild boar hunt was thrown out after she passed away, each one is made up of expertly sourced vintage tapestries. We loove how once wrapped around the artists fiberglass animal-shaped moulds, these old-fashioned textiles have a whole new life to them.
