Someone else bought the house I wanted.
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?
- Ali Sandifer Studio – beautiful hand crafted furniture. “The collection largely integrates storage into its form, striving to make furniture that is both intelligent and attractive. We take pride in hand-producing our work in house. This intimacy and knowledge of craft is essential to the way we design.” Environmentally sensitive pieces made to last. I just want to run my hands over those curves!
- maison et toi – an online gallery of the most gorgeous (and needless to say expensive) 20th century design. I’d most likely sell my soul for quite a few of Raji Radhakrishnan’s “objects of desire”. A girl can dream! More here as well.
- Another stunning rug range from Designer Rugs. Minnie Pwerle was, until her death in 2006, one of Australia’s most important indigenous artists. Minnie was born in 1910 but didn’t start painting until 1999. Her works are based on the body paintings on the women in her Atnwengerrp country. Stunning modern rugs steeped in an ancient culture. I want to move into that first room.
- The new rustic. Brooklyn based Nightwood reconstructs and reincarnates furniture and textiles with a down to earth vibe. Myriah Scruggs and Nadia Yaron repurpose, re-use and re-love.
