Dogs and chairs again!

Image from Cadwallader Design.

Hi Kim! Found another dog and chair photo. This one is for you.
P.S. That's one of my favourite chairs on the right, the Armchair 400 by Alvo Aalto and what I think is a Rhodesian ridgeback.

Michael Haverland


Micheal Haverland clearly has a thing for classic mid-century furniture. His designs are centered around these and lots of modern artwork. Anyone with the balls to use a pink Eames lounger in a space is on the top of my list of designers to admire.

Urban Prairie

 

Chris Brown is the genius behind Urban Prairie. A man with a finely tuned eye for the found and forlorn, Chris' edgy out of the box country style is inspiring the next generation of "found" collectors. Probably the funkiest looking site I've seen in ages. Chris says, “I’ve found that the people that are drawn to my style, my design sense are more than just collectors. They are people who want to live a simple life with things they love around them - in an interesting way.” Don't miss his blog Urban Prairie Refueled or his profiles of other collectors and interview with D'Ette Cole.

 

 

All images from Urban Prairie website. The ones marked Marfa Texas are from the Marfa Installation by the fabulous D'Ette Cole who was featured here.

Dogs and chairs

This seems to be a recurring theme with me. I love dogs and I love chairs. Here's another dog on a chair from modliving's Flickr photostream of her pomeranian puppy Jador.

Modern steel and concrete home

I was looking through some old magazines and found some photos in Ottawa Magazine of the home of architect Hank Kloosterman in the Gatineau Hills. Who knew there was such a fabulous modern home in the midst of the forest?


He has some fabulous MCM chairs, that suit the modern interior. Amazing red galvanized steel ceiling, concrete floors and cement block walls (the home is made up of 2,800 of them).


Obviously a lover of steel, the fireplace is made of painted red l-beams and the bathroom is surrounded in steel. The bathroom sink is VERY creative - made from a wok, glass plate and a funnel.
