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.

If you’re looking to add some interest to your walls without making a large investment, you might want to check out Outline Editions. They offer high quality, limited edition prints from Britian’s most influential graphic artists.
“We believe graphic art is a uniquely friendly art form – made for sharing – and that’s why we are trying to get brilliant work out there to be enjoyed by as wide an audience as possible through temporary pop up exhibitions, Design festivals, events and our website. Our roster of artists include Noma Bar, Anthony Burrill, Marion Deuchars, Kristjana S Williams, Kate Moross, Patrick Thomas, James Joyce, Hellovon and Claire Scully”.
I have to admit that I really enjoy these designs. I love it when art allows me to see in different ways and some of these designs, just make me smile…and we should all do as much of that as we can.

When I was renting an apartment, the walls were so bland. We were not allowed to paint or make “new” nail holes in the walls. The options for decorating have changed so much and new products like this make such a difference. The 3D wall decals are a great product for all of you renters out there who have similar restrictions or for those of you who are looking for new wall decor that makes a big impact for a low cost and minimal effort. This decal is so well designed that it looks like a real niche. The 3D wall decals can integrate well in any room of your home, from the living room to an entryway or even a nursery. They are easy to apply and when the time comes for a change, just as easily removed.
