The Roost


The Roost is one half of a unique pair of location houses for the film and photographic industry. With approximately 5500 sq ft of working space set over four floors and a walled garden it is packed with an eclectic range of furniture from the 1930‘s through to the present day. Truly a boho inspiration. Frightening if your vibe is classic and clean but this haven of the found object and the clash of pattern is dangerously enticing. Check out it's sister site The Perch.

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.
