Deco Alert: Wonder Wicker

Still freezing outside but if like me you are already thinking about spring here a trendy way to spruce up our home for the milder weather. Lately I`ve seen an increased number of wicker funiture and lighting.  The traditional craft of weaving meets modern shapes and I  love the result. Have a look here:

Design studio Chudy / Grase have created a lovely collection called “Meet the Wicker” . By combining the traditional craft with the industrial metal frame the project aims to go away from the crafty look of wicker weaving and instead reinterprets the plants core values. The result is a series of fab modern pieces.

Even Ikea has launched a collection of rattan furniture and accessories. The limited edition NIPPRIG range, made from renewable natural materials, is a collaboration between local artisans of Vietnam and Indonesia. The collection includes chairs, containers, decorative rugs, and we like the introduction of bright colors.

Interiors Crush: Recycled Home in Milan

This house in Milan’s lively Isola district is filled with unique pieces crafted out of raw materials by the talented industrial designer Costanza Algranti. Costanza scores the streets of Milan in search for all kind of stuff: benches, gutters, barrels and metal sheets. She selects them thinking about what they might become. In her laboratory she works these materials to create new, fresh and unconventional furnishings: lamps, mirrors, chairs, kitchens. The result might not be everybody taste but I admire Costanza`s ability to transform raw, discarded things into treasure pieces which bring within numerous traces of what they were.

Deco Alert: Tiles Me Up!

I must admit I am a wooden floor person. I love the natural changing color of wood, I like the cosyness and warm of the wooden floor under my feet. But lately I spotted these gorgeous images of tiles and they are growing on me now. Like them?

Deco Alert: Unfinished Walls

I like this idea of painting just a bit of your walls. Maybe because I am always busy, but this could be a time-saving and uber stylish deco idea to try. Beside perfection is boring, isn`t it???
