'Homeless Chic' Bed-Wear by Dutch By Design

LC-2007002_1_Zoom.jpg

WTF?? I would be offended by this except a precentage of the gross profits from the sale of these linens will go to Centrepoint, a UK charity for homeless youth ages 16 to 25-years-old.

Video: NYC Small Stories by Laron Batchelor

Featuring Robert James, Rafik Video & the King's Road Home. Some really cool stories especially the one about the inspiration behind the King's Road Home name which by the way, seems like a very cool 'green' business, check it out....

 

Props to my boy, Laron for this. He's shooting this on his flip cam (he calls himself 'flipographer'). This could be an interesting series if he keeps it going.

The One of a Kind Show comes to Toronto

OneofaKindShow.jpgBeen seeing ads for this show in local papers for a good couple weeks now. Looks kind of interesting. Not sure how truly 'one of a kind' the stuff on display is but the sentiment is well appreciated. Everybody can't have the same looking home design creative which is what is happening nowadays as everyone shops at the same places (Ikea, C2, Design With Reach, Pottery Barn etc.)

 

Anyway here's the details - the show opened Wednesday and runs until this Sunday. Below is a news piece on the show by Humber College's TheDailyPlanet.com.

Direct Energy Centre, Exhibition Place, 100 Princes' Blvd

Serimony

medium_logo.2.gif Special shout to the clothing, card & stationary boutique Serimony in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn near my house. It's not cheap ($3 for a birthday card the size of a thank you card!) but do you really want to spend the rest of your life buying cards for those you love and care about from drug stores when every once in a while you can go that extra mile and look like you actually made an effort?

 

More on Serimony:

 

"every special occasion starts with something remarkable.

serimony is a design studio and boutique based in new york city, where originality and quality are key. we specialize in social stationery, custom invitations and original greetings. we don't believe in one-size-fits-all. our philosophy is that each card should be as distinctive as the individual or couple it reflects."

Click here for more and happy birthday to baby Nyla Crespo whose 1st birthday is the reason I went into Serimony in the first place yesterday afternoon.

A Seat at the Table: Rygalik’s Raw Chair

 
From last week's Sunday Times magazine:

 

"Tomek Rygalik is not exactly a household name. But after this year’s fair, you can expect to see it a lot more often. Rygalik’s Raw chair for Moroso was a soulful, funky standout against the seas of 60’s and 70’s redux. Made from four pieces of leather, the chair supports itself — and the sitter — without an internal structure. Rygalik, a native of Poland who now works both in Lodz and in London, showed the prototype to Ron Arad, who had been one of his teachers at the Royal College of Art. Arad in turn showed it to Patrizia Moroso, the furniture company’s creative director and owner, who loved it. Rygalik, who laments the fact that we are ‘‘detached from the things we use,’’ wanted to make something ‘‘that was as it looked. What you see is what you get.’’" (click here to read more)

Alexander Reh's Shotgun Shell Chair

Spotted via Boing Boing:

 

"This is designer Alexander Reh's "Fully Loaded" chair. It's made from more than 450 12-gauge shotgun shells. "The bright brass tips create a massaging texture on the top of the chair, much to the contrary of their intended use," he writes." (click here for more)

The 2005 Burton Idiom 158 board

Regular readers know I am a fan of all things wooden, particularly snowboards so it's no surprise that I would be a fan of the 2005 Burton Idiom 158 board (right). It's already sold out - at least on the site where I discovered it - but props and shine are still due. Read on:

 

"The Idiom 158 has a directional shape intended for all conditions. This board has healthy sidecut conducive to nice, tight turns. The board has a mellow, medium flex which makes the board easy to handle. Edge-to-Edge quickness is very good and turn initiation is responsive due to the shorter effective Edge, making this board very agile in all situations. Materials are very good and quality is exceptional, making the Idiom one of the premier snowboards in the world. The IDIOM SELECT 158 is inspired from early modern furniture design and draws influence from the designs of Charles and Ray Eames." (click here to read more)
