keith shore

i came across keith shore's great artwork on bluelines. from top to bottom: autumn scrimmage, stephen and stephen (reminds me of david hockney), fort lauderdale (from mcsweeneys 20), the bearded portraits (limited edition print you can buy in his shop!)

...and this?!

riki desk clock by riki watanabe. moma store

how brilliant is this?

index cutting boards designed by damian evans...perfect for those of us meat eaters that are a bit paranoid 'bout germs. they should make a vegetarian set though, too...or a sweet & savory set... nothing worse than cutting great fruit on a garlic scented board. ick!
available at the moma store

cool bathroom

from blueprint's feb 08 issue. suzanna blerwith's row house in chicago. i love the tiles. view more pics from her great placehere

felt so good

i'm a little behind on magazine subscriptions... i just looked at blueprint's february issue (which i think is there last hurrah?) where i found these great placemats... i have been looking for felt placemats and coasters that don't look: 1. crafty (like a kindergarten project) or 2. thick, heavy and mobid in a joseph beuys way (i love joe, just i'd like to see piles of felt slathered with lard in an art museum...not so appetizing on the table. i digress..)
so these are light and an interesting take on grandma's lace tablecloth from venucci in australia...i'm curious how thick the felt is.

nice mantra

...on a biscuit no less. get one here

nathalie dewez

from the hoping for happy accidents blog i found belgian lighting designer nathalie dewez. i love 'drop' for bedside lighting. for lucky europeans, word has it (via the style files) that stella will be available through habitat in spring 2008.
top to bottom: sol-air, stella, drop

it's ok

on one of my favorite blogs, i came across these woodblock pieces by multi polar project. the chicago artist, sighn, makes them by hand and is shooting to make a million in his life time. you can watch a great little movie about the project here...and buy your own little wooden pat-on-the-back (for a mere 20 buckaroos!)
