… love the little florist near my house

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?

    • Monsieur Paul is Pascal Vochelet, a French artist living in Marseille. His work is all about childhood memory and family. Originals and prints in his Etsy store.

    • Modernica has reissued versions of George Nelson’s iconic Criss Cross Bubble Lamp (Cigar, Pear or Ball) that have been out of production for decades. Midcentury classics… yum can’t get enough!

    • Hélène Barrier is the textile designer behind La Reine Dagobert. Handcrafting comforting creatures, strange and soft textile objects, she works exclusively with recycled then dyed, embroidered and/or screen-printed fabrics. Softies as art. Don’t miss her installations and exhibitions while you are there.


    • Paola can’t help herself. She has to create. Love these architecturally themed felt cushions found at her Etsy shop Atelier Pompadour.

    • New blog alert. Sweet Sunday Mornings focuses on set design & fashion in films. The anonymous blogger (let’s call him/her SSM) emailed to share. “After a while of realizing that I was noticing the wallpaper more than the actor’s performance when I was watching a move, I decided to start putting my saved screencaps online and share some of my inspirations.” SSM I have the same cinematic addiction. Good movie but where can I get that lamp?

  • Evan Dublin emailed “I recently finished my industrial design undergraduate degree and am pretty excited about my final project. I found a jungle gym slide from a salvage yard and came up with a fantastic solution to domesticate it. Using a component of the slide I produced a modern take on the classic wing-back chair. Its made with locally sourced white oak wood, wool and the slide.” What a hoot!
