… getting the measure of things

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?

  • Carolina Fontoura Alzaga makes elegant, victorian inspired chandeliers out of recycled bike parts. Steampunk beauties to make a statement.  I would kill for one of these!

  • FDV Collection has teamed up with the premier Italian textile manufacturer Rubelli to create these oh so glam pendants and floor lamps,  Alexandria and Damasco. Very different from the bicycle pendants above but referencing the same past with a modern take. Available through Leucos.

  • How wonderfully wild and whimsical are these?!! OTT 😉 Sally Bridge, a former fashion designer is now designing and making rustic modern, wrought iron furniture. See more at Sally Bridge Metal.

  • Have you been to see the new Australian based online magazine Adore Home yet? If you haven’t then grab a cup of coffee and settle in for a treat. (Great for Aussie sources too when it comes to getting the look.)

Loving the bicycle-chain chandeliers!! They're so elegant yet almost skeletal…amazing works of art. Thank you for continuing to bring us so many wonderful artists and designers from around the world!

The victorian chandelier made out of bike parts is stunning!! I've spent waaaay too much time pouring over the new Adore Magazine…isn't it fabulous?

I love all of them! The contemporary white couch most especially. Have a gorgeous day, Kellie xx

Sally says:

Thanks for posting my furniture! I'm off to Umbria, Italy to make some new pieces!
I truly appreciate it that you like my work and took the time to post it.

Have a great week!
