…. on my inspiration board

WINKS – weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we’ve found and things we think you’ll want to see. If you’d like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we’ll link you. So what’s in this week?

    • Crave acrylic? Lust for lucite? Then Spectrum West will make you weak at the knees. They are launching their collection this spring at ICFF. It’s clear that my heart belongs to perspex. What about yours?
    • The drama, the passion or should that be patina. Luxe looking and definitely statement pieces check out Boca Do Lobo. And then there are the limited edition pieces!
    • Now for the too too cute! Check out Lapin & Me. It’s a wonderland of the hand-made, the nostalgic and the unusual.
    • Loxii is a vinyl wall graphics company based out of Las Vegas. While Chris Levy and Stewart Christensen have designed most of the graphics they have also partnered with three other designers. Samantha Hahn from New York, Gisela Here from Buenos Aires, and Nicole Ketchum from West Hartford, Connecticut. The online site is new and they are trying to develop a community based design company with design competitions and lots of custom work. My love affair with decals is still going strong (I rent, I love) especially with great new designs coming on the market. Good luck guys!
    • Case Jernigan is an up and coming artist who emailed to introduce his work. I love it particularly his portraits. Take a look for yourself.
    • Spring is sprung and Matthew Mead is up to his fabulous styling, culinary and entertainment tricks again. Easter is just next week so he’s just in time.
  • Yuki Murata emailed, “… my business started when friends commissioned me to make their wedding china (the coral pattern) back in 2004… not much these days for affordable hand painted china – Meissen and Royal Copenhagen are out of most people’s price range – I really try to keep my pricing realistic, everyone deserves something original and hand made. Anyway, I just launched my online store moderngoods.” Love your work Yuki. Especially love your fish sculptures. Now where could I fit these in my house?

Quite a diverse lot this week. Don’t forget the mega easter chock-a-block gorge yourself silly reading guides next weekend. Can never get too much of a good thing (and easter eggs)!
