Craigslist Boston Find: Heywood Wakefield Dining Room

August 1, 2007

When Boston-based reader Syrene wrote to me asking whether I’d blog about the dining room (table, 6 chairs, leaf insert, and china cabinet on server) that she *just* listed yesterday on Craigslist Boston, I took one look at the photos and agreed – this Heywood Wakefield Dining Room is in perfect condition. And who knows, perhaps someone out there reading has dreamt of owning a set like this? If that person is you, this is your lucky day because this set has been in her family since it was made in 1949 so it’s quite a special find.

Although the buffet shown below isn’t listed, she is willing to let it go to the right owner along with the dining set, so if you’re interested, please let her know.

Thanks Syrene for the tip!

Inspiration via Amazing Morocco

August 1, 2007

While researching for an HGTV piece I’m working on, I came across the gorgeous interiors galleries at Amazing Morocco showcasing some fantastic rooms. Amazing Morocco was founded by two UK-based couples with a passion for this enchanting land that quickly became a business of building and selling villas there. I know you’ll love looking at some of them, so here’s the link and a mini preview of the beauty that awaits you…

New Designers Online

July 31, 2007

I stumbled upon a most informative UK-based website called New Designers Online, a comprehensive guide showcasing new design talent mostly from Europe, much along the same lines as Trunkt here in America. It’s a site you’ll want to browse because the talent featured is phenomenal – so fresh! And talk about inspired design… I’d like to share with you a few of my favorites, all of whom I’ve written to requesting more information and imagery, with hopes that they will write back and I can feature them again in the future. I’m especially smitten by the work of Heidi Turner and Matt Smith. Wow. Impressive.

New Designers Online Heidi Turner – “Contemporary, embroidered and embellished designs with a bright folkloric feel, inspired by nature and environment on natural fabric.” – New Designers Online.

New Designers Online Loretta Harmer – “Loretta’s distinct style is inspired by her dual love of nature and textures, evident in her creations which include silver seed pendants, poetry bangles and pine cone table sculptures.” -New Designers Online. Loretta also has a website called Natural Impression.

New Designers Online Katja Behre – “Katja creates distinctive neo-romantic designs with consideration given to colour, shape and theme, manifesting itself as wall coverings and textiles for furniture, drapes and fashion.” – New Designers Online.

New Designers Online Matt Smith – “Matt juxtaposes the permanence of clay with the fleeting coincidenses of day dreams to produce charming and whimsical vessels and wall pieces.” – New Designers Online.

New Designers Online Helen Gallogly – “Helen produces highly decorative, hand drawn and embroidered textiles, inspired by 17th/18th century wallpapers and botanical illustrations. Products include, furniture throws and bespoke chair coverings.” – New Designers Online.

Camilla Meijer Design at Roost

July 31, 2007

Camilla Meijer was trained as a graphic designer and produces vivid digitally printed floral fabrics. Just last year (2006), she launched her collection of pillows and wall hangings and will soon roll out lampshades as well. They have this 60’s vibe to them that’s fun and free. Plus, it’s fun to look at her many patterns because a single pillow can inspire the color palette of an entire room. Shop Roost online for her pillows right here.
