These beautiful fashion illustrations are by artist, Garance Doré. She began her career as a fashion illustrator with the desire to produce timeless, classic, beautiful illustrations and from my perspective she has far surpassed that goal. Her work has appeared in fashion magazines (Elle, Vogue Paris, etc.) and in conjunction with such well known designers as Dior, Louis Vuitton, Kate Spade, Tiffany & Co., etc. She is also a photographer and fashion blogger with a dedicated following. Her work has been exhibited throughout the world, including New York, London and Sydney. Both Art Prints and posters (for a modest price) are currently available for purchase. So if you are a lover of fashion, Garance Doré may be of interest to you.

Incredibly affordable prices and the well know quality of Blu Dot, they might be onto something here.

Designed by Studio BADINI with technical fittings from Selab this collection of Neon Letters, Numbers and Shapes can help you make your statement!
Stefano and Miria, the brother and sister team at the helm of Italian based Seletti, have brought us this malleable Neon Art. When compared with traditional neon systems, this product allows you to create your own neon art at an affordable price. The secondary benefit is that these letters are not in a fixed pattern and can be reordered as your needs change. The font style was developed from that of a typical American Typewriter and redesigned to meet the requirements of neon tube construction. The adapter for the lights and each letter is sold separately, but when combined to create your statement, they lend a decorative ambient light.

This armchair, sofa and ottoman look so amazingly comfortable. I am having dreams of snuggling up with a good book. Designed by the Italian duo Andrea Radice and Folco Orlandini for Skitsch, this trio is currently offered in three textile combinations; vintage leather, Brown and Blue and Grey and Blue. The bright blue cordonnet stitching is the perfect accent when contrasted against the neutral brown and grey tones for the base fabric. The cotton covers are removable and underneath is a “TNT fabric interior with sifted polystyrene, polyester fiber hollow conjugated redone, polyurethane.” In all honesty, I am not 100% certain what that means other then durable and really comfortable, but I will put my trust in Andrea and Folco in this area. I can envision these casual creations becoming integral seating in any family home.

Another great new design from Danish design studio “Says Who” is this unique modern suspension light. The Plunger , designed by Kasper Meldgaard and Nicholas Duve, does its’ name justice.
