highest bidder

if i had serious money to burn & i actually knew how to work an auction, i’d bid on some pretty things at bukowski’s

rooftop dream

flat #1 & 2

holy wow check out this flat in paris… though i think i would be shit scared to climb those stairs.

facing the eglise saint-gervais on one side and the hôtel de ville de paris on the other, this 95 sqm apartment occupies the whole of the the two top floors of an 18th century building.

this one is also pretty cool,

all i need

i know i usually feature fancy looking wood & glass masterpieces, but i’d really just like a pretty little house, possibly with a garden (or a courtyard, or a verandah – or all three) that’s close to town so that i can walk everywhere.

“under a vast blue sky”

from the new york times: Jan McFarland Cox, an artist and designer, spent nearly a decade of her life building a house in the Idaho desert, along with architect Tom Kundig. imagine lingering over a cup of coffee in this kitchen!

neverend

i really can’t decide which colour i prefer. both? from furni neverend is a series of clocks created in conjunction with a select group of incredibly talented artists and designers. Each piece features artwork that is laser-etched onto a 3/8” thick piece of high quality russian birch plywood to create…
