More of this sexy kitten here

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?

  • Lost City Products is a New York based design house that specializes in exquisite hand-made fabrics, pillows, scarves, bags and chairs. One word – sumptuous. No I need another word – sublime. Artisan masterpieces of silk embroidered on silk. I can’t show them in their true beauty here. The website is dangerous. Gorgeous fabric everywhere!

  • The Alienation Bench (2008), a limited edition piece by Thos. Moser. Just a teaser to draw you into a website groaning with craftsman built fine furniture. Referencing fine wood workers of centuries past, it’s sculptural, simple in its beauty, a statement piece. Do I have a love a affair with wooden furniture? I do if the object of my lust and longing is a Thos. Moser piece.

  • Naive children’s prints inspired by 50s and 60s. These cute modern yet retro illustrations by Swedish illustrator Ingela P Arrhenius are colourful, fun and perfect for finishing touch for a little one’s room. Available at  L’Affiche Moderne.

  • The first of two British wallpaper collections in today’s winks. Beware the Moon what more can you say?! Ostriches with their heads in the sand, nude pinup girls, skulls and flock. Bespoke and very Brit. After all the British are the wallpaper kings and Beware the Moon takes the micky. It’s irreverent yet practical, a little blue but a definite statement, risky, risqué and fun. What do you think?

  • Are ostriches the new zebra? No wait, zebra are still holding their own. With tennis rackets, cricket bats and ibises. Another British wallpaper range that takes a stylish dig at not only the national wall finish but also the culture. Turner Pocock with Catherine Cazalet. Ring your bell? Knock your bales off? Deliver the design backhand? It’s funky, it’s different…there are even polar bears! (P.S. Drooling over that wall sconce in the first picture.)

Sparky says:

LOL! I love the ostrich with-head-in-the-sand wallpaper in the context of the bathroom. And the added touch in the photo of the pup drinking from the "fountain" shows exactly the reason we keep the lid down at our house with two full-sized greyhounds in the family! Actually, all the wallpaper from this line is charming and well designed—and adds some whimsy. The embroidered fabric in the first photos is gorgeous!

Tara says:

The hand-painted fabric is divine!!! Thanks for the lovely links…

Piper says:

I love the wallpaper – quirky and modern yet totally chic. And now I’m obsessing over the lamp with the yellow shade (the blue wallpaper picture). It would be perfect in my greyish-brown living room!!
