I found these photos a couple of years ago when I was searching for ideas for a tattoo as a tribute to my grandmother. I've been thinking about getting another tattoo...and these tattoos by Nick Baxter suddenly popped into my head (although I would not get chairs tattooed on me - too weird). These are so well done it's incredible. The proud owner of these tattoos is a furniture design major. Go figure.
This firm has been around for 2 decades and has worked on quite a number of diverse projects. Recent projects include a loft renovation for Daniel Libeskind, 900 affordable homes in East New York, six new high schools in the Bronx, and Aqua, a 12-story condo building in Miami Beach. Their style is modern without being sterile. My favourite is the unusual shape of the kitchen island above.
Leonie Brown worked for designers and fabric houses in both London and New York before setting up her own company Leonie Brown Interiors in 2002. Her team is innovative and young with backgrounds in fine art, furniture and design. The rooms are elegant, sophisticated, textural. Modern with a trad twist at times and at others sleek, crisp and contemporary. With a shop and design studio in London and a New York Studio on Fifth Avenue Leonie covers both sides of the pond. While you're at her site don't miss her collection of hand embroidered and hand printed fabrics and wallpapers which are inspired by archive designs sourced from all over the world.
Minima is a furniture, lighting and interior design firm in Dublin, Ireland that began in 1998. Some photos in their portfolio shocked me. Here's why: I hate dark blue...and I have no idea why. I don't wear dark blue, and I do not have dark blue in my home. But I found these photos below where dark blue is a predominant accent colour and I love them.
