Today is a holiday here in the states, so I’ll see everyone tomorrow!
Have a great day off!
Robert Segal + Alicia Rosauer have an extensive background in textile design and photography, along with one common vision – to create modern design that is livable. They were hoping to bring products to market that would breathe a bit of fresh air into modern living spaces here in America. After spending four years designing and living in Finland, they relocated to Chicago, merging their experience and design sensibilities into one sweet package called Unison Home. Mixing organic and graphic inspired pattens, their pillows and bedding are soft yet bold at the same time, and I really enjoy the modern sporty take on quilts (i.e. track quilts) and the very sweet Juniper pillows caught my eye, too.
Note: Most of the goods on their website will be available in September 2006, so this is a site you’ll want to bookmark.
While looking at Nanoo’s work, I came across the the Posterlounge shop in Germany, where you can select from over 950 illustrations from artists based all over the world, selecting between an art print or a print on canvas. Categorized by styles and topics, finding exactly what you want is a breeze. I love their customer photos section – customers submit photos of their Posterlounge finds installed in their space, it’s really fun (tres helpful, too!) to see how these images look in rooms.

You’re going to love French illustrator, Nanoo Sha?. You can browse her website to view her portfolio and art gallery, where you can purchase illustrations in the poster lounge printed on high quality canvas. Her website is so much fun to navigate, total eye candy loaded, and her prints are just totally switched on, baby!
“I have always found life more beautiful and poetic when it is filtered through an illustration or drawing. And this is this mix of elegance and sobriety, humour and serenity that I am trying to find when I am working on a new illustration.”
You can find more Nanoo illustrations here.
Thanks Nanoo for writing to me!
