Freddy & Ma Custom Handbags, Pillows and More!

I’ve talked about Freddy & Ma before but I was recently reminded of their work and thought I’d show you some of their latest patterns and colors… oh and laptop sleeves (I’m dying to get my hands on one). I love seeing the work of Brooklyn artist Samantha Hahn on some of their pillows, I dig her design aesthetic so I think I’d own all of her pillows if I could fit them onto my sofa. :)

Aren’t these just lovely? You can customize plates, pillows, whatever you’d like using these fun tool on their site. They have a bevy of patterns to select from, and the pillows come in three sizes. I’m considering placing an order myself, I can never have too many cushions! Have fun playing on their website…

Dandi: New!

Dandi is a brand new homewares company based in Sydney made up of four ladies who met in college while studying industrial design. They decided to combine their talents and form a business and Dandi was born. I heard from one of these ladies, Melinda, who sent me these photos to premiere here on decor8 today. They specialize in the design and creation of innovative screen printed fabric and etched bamboo products for the home. Dandi infuses their collection with bright colors, fresh patterns and a bit of the 1950’s housewife femininity combined with nature motifs.


The Dandi team.
