nouveau

Happy New Year! I've been MIA for quite some time, life got in the way. I'll be starting grad school soon to get my Masters in design, so I'm sure I'll have plenty of incidental finds to share with you as the semesters tick on... stay tuned.

nema workshop

While trolling the pages of one of my favorite blogs, The Cool Hunter, I came across images of one of the trippiest spaces I've seen in awhile. D'Espresso coffee shop in Manhattan is modeled after what a library would look like if it was flipped on its side, and it succeeds in high style.


This little discovery prompted me to look into the geniuses behind the design, and I was downright tickled to find Nema Workshop. They are a team of architects, designers, and "thinkers," who use their collective and collaborative spirit to bring ideas to life that tend to be highly conceptual and spacially brilliant. I think I'm in love. Scroll on for a little sampling of their hive of genius...

easy as abc

I was looking back through my archives the other day, and was shocked to realize that I had never done a post on one of my favorite spots in the whole wide world: ABC Carpet and Home. If you're a design nerd like me, I'm sure you've heard of the spot, but I wanted to highlight some of my favorite items they have on their website at the moment. I have so many wonderful memories of hours spent wandering through when I lived in NYC. It used to be a destination I would go to just because; each floor is it's own world, it's like wandering through a dreamland. Scroll on for some of my current favorite picks...

the silverlake collection

I'm loving Moroso's Silverlake furniture collection. They're basically classic shapes given a bit of a mid-century modern twist; tradition butting up against futurism, an aesthetic right up my alley. What do you think?

rich brilliant willing

To name your own design collective "Rich Brilliant Willing" may seem a bit cavalier, but I think it's, well, brilliant. You see, the three gentlemen who make up this lovely little collective have the last names Richardson, Brill, and Williams. Get it? Pretty clever. Equally as clever are their dynamic pieces including furniture, lighting, even packaging. They've had partnerships with clients as varied as Urban Outfitters and Artecnica, and have been consistently featured in publications such as The World of Interiors, Dwell, and Ready Made. I think they're one of the most exciting young firms working in the States today. Scroll on, and let me know if you think so too.
