Modern nesting tables

Nesting-tables-3 Nesting-tables-2 Nesting-tables

Form follows function with the Treforma Nesting Tables. Inspired by objects and the way they reflect and transmit light, the color of objects is determined by the parts of the spectrum of light that are reflected without being absorbed.

All technicalities aside, these tables are perfect for various occasions and room sizes.

Great teacher gift!

120-6209_10869.jpgAs the end of another school year rapidly approaches, many parents are desparately trying to find the perfect gift for their child's teacher.  Take coffee mug, lotion, and candles off your list. 

Instead, surprise them with a great vase and colorful flowers -- perfect to brighten up their desk at school or table at home.

The Helix vase is on sale at Chiasso for only $24!

Style is from Mars

Mars-lamp-chiasso Wide strips of white perforated (and recycled!) Lexan plastic forms an over-sized, contemporary globe that envelops and radiates the light.

I think my kitchen just added the Mars Pendant to its remodeling wish list...

The Right Angle Mirror by Daniel Rybakken for Ligne Roset

the-right-angle-mirror-by-daniel-rybakken-for-ligne-roset-large3.jpg Ligne-roset-mirror Daniel Rybakken has done numerous projects with aluminum, LED lights, and irregular dimensions. In fact, his latest Right Angle Mirror prototype from 2010 was what he calls “an unexpected aesthetic dimension, the reflections and shadows cast on surrounding walls. Curves touching the wall create the illusion of suspension in space”.

Moder Fall Wreath

2488383.jpg

I despise a naked front door -- it's like going without earrings. Just absurd!

Fall is ripe with bold pops of oranges, reds, and golds -- add subtle touches of blues and greens with this feathered wreath from Pier 1.
