Fishs Eddy

decor8 reader Michelle in sunny LA, just told me about some dirty dishes over at Fishs Eddy that I simply had to post. How cute are these? The pole dancer girl glasses are naughty but nice, too. If you need inspiration to run more, the running tray may be just what you need. Shop Fishs Eddy online or visit their flagship store in NYC on Broadway and 19th Street, with additional locations on Manhattan’s Upper West Side (Broadway and 77th Street), and Upper East Side (Third Avenue and 79th Street). They also have a new location in Brooklyn Heights at 122 Montague Street. Also liking the Brooklyn platter, I have to tell my friend Deanna about this over in the Heights, she’d love it.

Call For Entries – THAW 2006

The Works Visual Arts Society and IDEA are presenting another edition of the THAW 2006 Contemporary Furniture Design Exhibit in Edmonton and have just put out a call for entries.

“The objective of this exhibit is to continue our exploration of the relationship between the designer and the end user with an attempt to provide awareness in sustainable designed products. This time we have introduced ourselves to the persona of Agnes Petterson, who is to be the inspiration behind all designs submitted. Attached you will find a light-hearted questionnaire that Agnes has filled out in order for you to acquaint yourself with her. Designs should be based on your interpretation of her personality and lifestyle. However, the intention is not to custom design to her lifestyle but more so to envision her as the consumer or end user. What would Agnes buy? Selection will be based on this interpretation, as well as product quality, originality, innovated use of material, and aesthetic appeal”.

You can check out images from past Thaw exhibits over at IDEA’s website. Deadline to submit is April 1, 2006.

Thank you Adriean Koleric from DesignBOT for passing on this information to decor8 readers!

Amy Butler

I’ve loved Amy Butler patterns and fabrics for several years, and I especially enjoy her free pattern downloads on her website because I can never make too many throw pillows (huge problem for me). For all you DIY fans out there, Amy just released a new pattern for Spring called Mod Pillows and I’m loving it… I can’t wait to order it from repro depot (local online company) and sew some of these up for myself. What do you think?

If you’ve never heard of Amy Butler, browse her website. She has so much visual candy on it that you’re certain to be pleasantly distracted for quite awhile. I especially love browsing her lifestyle photos.

Enjoy all of these pretty photos showcasing her studio and lovely slipcovers that you can make using her fabric and patterns. How they inspire you to dust off your sewing machine!

Amy in her design studio! Lush!
