Design Must…

I found this quote rather interesting, beautiful and well… true! It’s from Graphic Exchange and I thought you might like it…

Design Must...

Now I only wish this were a print or poster large enough for framing. It’s lovely, don’t you think?

Lilly Berlin

While I’m talking a little about Berlin designers today, have you heard of Lilly Berlin, the lampshade queen? Oh she’s so great at selecting beautiful fabrics to cover her shades with for both table lamps and pendants. I like the patterns she finds, from nesting dolls to cute little scenes, animals, and lots of tiny prints and her shades come in made sizes and shapes. Here’s a view of some, see which ones you like…

Handmade

Jung Porzellan

September 10, 2009

Crazy about ceramics? I recently discovered the small porcelain maker Jung Porzellan in Berlin and immediately thought about you and that perhaps you’d like to learn about them. Each piece is handcrafted in their studio so no two are alike, and from what I’ve noticed, it seems they enjoy designing well made, beautiful items that have a bit of a sense of humor to them. That really came shining through when I saw their banana holder, which you can hang in the kitchen from the ceiling. :)
