New York Apartment

I LOVE this apartment featured in New York Social Diary. It's the home of architect Adam Kushner, his wife and twins located in the West Village. Check out the doors pictured...they're vintage New York City subway doors!

Kitchens from Israel

Meirav from Israel sent me an email yesterday. She's a designer who's worked in textile design, and is now working with her husband designing rural style kitchens and furniture. The workmanship is AMAZING! Look for more photos on their website (it's in Hebrew).

Royal Ontario Museum and Daniel Libeskind Part 2

Lauren at the ROM was kind enough to send us information and photos of Daniel Libeskind's first ever chair design, as mentionned in this post last week.

"The contemporary, multi-faceted Spirit House Chair is architect Daniel Libeskind’s first foray into the world of furniture. The chair is constructed entirely of 14 gauge stainless steel with a brushed finish and weighs 180 lbs. It is designed to be oriented in five different positions and can be used as a side-table. Each chair takes 40 hours of labour to complete. As a special finishing touch, each chair will have Libeskind’s signature etched onto it. The chair is being manufactured by Nienkämper Furniture & Accessories Inc. of Toronto and will be available for purchase after June 2nd through the Nienkämper store, KLAUS by Nienkämper, on King Street West in Toronto."


Lauren also sent us some photos of the expansion of the museum, called the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal (opening June 2). But because it is still under construction, she could only send renderings.


Hmmmmm.....I am a bit overwhelmed by Daniel's designs, both the chair and the expansion, and not really in a good way. He definitively has a thing for sharp angles.

A photo for Jo

Jo would kill me if she woke up to find a hockey post as the first thing people see when they view the blog. So here Jo, this one's for you.

Some hockey love


The Ottawa Senators, as I mentionned earlier, just kicked some Buffalo ass and won the game, putting them in the Stanley Cup playoffs! WOHOOOOOOOOO!!!
(Sorry folks, this has nothing to do with design, but had to show some love because I have lived here my entire life and this has NEVER HAPPENED! It's insanity here...I have all the windows open and all you can hear is screaming and honking. This is partly due to the fact that I live 5 mins from the stadium.)
