Myrica Bergqvist (Sweden)

Now, let’s step away from etsy finds for a bit, and look at these stunning acrylic beds from Swedish designer, Myrica Bergqvist, available in several colors and four key styles.

A modern interpretation of the past, Myrica’s designs add just the right touch of ‘wow’ without transforming your bedroom into the set of Marie Antoniette. In addition to headboads, Myrica also creates lighting and home accessories. If you’d like to locate her work, visit her stocklists online. This is Lady Babsy, available in black, white, or mirror.


Queenie, available in clear, white, smokey brown, smokey grey, black, red, mirror. Also shown in top image as a double.


Sir Elton, available in black, white, or mirror. The final headboard (not shown) is Miss Nouveau.

MaryInk

Here’s a fun etsy find… MaryInk of Nashville. Screenprinting everything by hand, they’ll even print your own designs upon request (so cool!). Their etsy store churns out everything from candle holders to tees, aprons, paper goods, and totes. Great prices, too. Sweet find!

Will Holman – Tennis Anyone?

I’ve heard of a tennis table, but a chair?


Designed by Virginia Tech architectural student Will Holman, Will started designing cardboard furniture but has since bounced into using more permanent materials to create functional, quirky art for the home. Currently fixated on tennis balls, this is the result of a recent modification on a standard office chair. He replaced the seat cushions with a quality, 1/4″ thick, laser-cut, piece of oak veneer plywood over an MDF substrate. Both cushions have 25 tennis balls contoured to fit the body, making for a comfortable sit. You can find Will Holman offering a few of his other quirky creations in his WHolman etsy store. The chair shown above is $275.-

Sugar Loop

I’m a very satisfied Sugar Loop customer, her work is so pretty and affordable. Framed, it makes the perfect gift. The latest creation from Bernadette Sipkes’ New Zealand studio is this gocco/serigraph print in metallic gold ink, a limited edition of only 82 (hurry, only a few are left!). You really can’t go wrong for $10.- USD. Other designs are available right here. Enjoy!

Would you like to learn more about the artist? Here’s her blogspot.
