Eastern Chakras meet sunburst emblems and glam rock stars in the Darjeeling print. The result is a design that coordinates with and reflects the themes of the ‘Buddha of Suburbia’ collection, whilst maintaining a stand-alone appeal. It’s a kaleidoscope of cultural and design influences.
Mini Moderns founders Keith Stephenson and Mark Hampshire explain: “We wanted to capture the 70s vibe of the wallpaper we’d see in our friends’ houses when we were growing up. Those patterns tapped into the 1970s fascination with all things Eastern, which is exactly the mood we’re revisiting with the ‘Buddha of Suburbia’ collection.”
At the same time, its tessellating geometry, rendered in Mini Moderns’ signature contemporary colours, has a distinctly modern edge.

After Ray’s death, the Eames family shared and cared for the Eames House and grounds, always mindful to safeguard their authenticity for the future. Now, the Eames Foundation is ready to preserve the house as it existed when Charles and Ray lived and worked in it for the last, most prolific half of their lives. This includes not only conserving the house for the future but also celebrating and transmiting the legacy and philosophy of Charles and Ray.
So, help preserve the Eames House and purchase and own a piece of the Eames legacy. The prints are 100% original works inspired by the elegant geometry and understated simplicity of Eames designs. All proceeds will support the projects of the Eames Foundation.

Clare Bosanquet, the artist behind “The Painted House“ Etsy store, found patterned paint rollers in a market in Romania and got so excited about this inexpensive wallpaper alternative that she now sells her own. The rollers give walls a look that Bosanquet describes as “like old, forgotten, sunbleached wallpaper“. What a brilliant idea!!

Engaging, surprising and bursting with color barely touch the surface when describing the paintings of artist Lee Clarke. Often using a focal point with radiating bands of color, his work pulls you in while at the same time creating a spatial depth that allows one to move in and around his canvases. Clarke’s playful motif upon closer inspection reveals a well thought out variation of surfaces and techniques that engage the viewer whether directly in front of the painting or twenty feet across the room. Look for his most recent work on his website www.leeclarke.ca or at UGallery.com.
