Gan, Man!

January 29, 2013

While at imm this year, I briefly had a chance to look around as I ran from my lecture to the book shop – but at least I spotted a few things on my sprint! I snapped a few photos on my iPhone for future blogging and one of those photos had a pouf from GAN. Here’s a glimpse of the good stuff… Runners, rugs, pillows, poufs and best of all, a totally crafty chic boho vibe.

Gan, Man!

I particularly am fond of the Mangas collection because it was designed by one of my favorite designers in the world, Patricia Urquiola, who I dream of meeting someday – she’s just amazing! I love how cozy her designs for GAN look, don’t you? So snuggly…

    Loving the cross-stitch artwork, cushions and bases! Am a bit of a cross-stitcher, so am now very tempted to make my own giant artwork once I complete my current projects!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Love the colors, texture and randomness of the work. Fun and organic! Thanks for sharing!

    I love the cross-stitch wall hanging in the first photo. Now the random patterns on the cushions have me toying with the possibility of making a big cross-stitch QR code. Might be something for the ‘reuse and recycle’ art installation I’ve been thinking about for ten years but never actually done. :)

    I love all these chunky knits! It reminds me of wearing your favorite sweater or if your grandmother knitted something cool and modern. I haven’t seen these around but I am hooked! Thanks for posting!

    i love them. I checked out the website too, pretty fair prices for the quality I think.

  • Reply Sarah @ Curio January 30, 2013 at 8:28 am

    I love that the stich design on the rugs is made up of actual stitch & not just a flat design.
