This Sao Paulo apartment is a fresh reminder about how successful simplicity can be. No frills necessary, just thoughtful design. Architect Alan Chu chose to use ceramic ventilation bricks (cobogó) as building blocks for walls and furniture in this home – the idea came out of budgetary necessity but on top of that it pays homage to modernist Brazilian architecture. It’s always cool to change the context of a widely used building material.
(It almost looks like wallpaper if you squint your eyes!)

Nothing says summer like having a shower in the open-air. If you haven’t had one yet this season you better get outside and find one before summer’s end!

Being outside feeds our souls, whether it’s deep in the woods or by the pool in the tropics or even if it’s being on a small patio that’s filled with plants. Here are a few places we wouldn’t mind spending the afternoon.

Though not the most exciting product to talk about, rug pads are a necessity in rug shopping. With the launch of our new Eskayel rug collection we wanted to be able to provide our customers with a reliable and environmentally friendly resource for rug pads. So we recently tested out the Superior-Lock rug pad from RugpadUSA under our Cocos – dove rug. It’s LEED certified and is made of 100% recycled felt with a natural non-slip rubber backing that anchors the rug to the floor. It’s needle punch bonded to avoid any chemicals or adhesives. It adds a nice layer of cushion while not adding too much overall height and it holds the rug in place really well. All of their rug pads are made in the USA and are LEED certified (with the exception of the Eco-Comfort which is memory foam) so they’re in line with Eskayel’s environmental values. Click here to shop all of their rug pads.

Marble in its natural habitat is so beautiful, as seen in this Italian Carrara marble quarry. Below is a round up of some marble design that we like.
Bathroom sink by Altamarea Bathroom Boutique, part of the luxurious Must collection.
Book matched marble in an Antwerp bathroom, by architect Dieter Vander Velpen.
These tiles by Lithos Design are a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional marble inlay. Lots of cool patterns in their Opus collection.
A minimal French apartment in Paris with architectural curved marble by Francois Champsaur.
Left – A dining room with gold floor to ceiling storage and dramatic dark marble floors.
Right – Classic Kelly Wearstler interior with patterned marble floors that almost mirror the ceiling pattern.
Marble print surfboards made by Haydenshapes for an installation in the Alexander Wang flagship store in Soho.
InHale table by Ben Storms. This monumental block of over 200 kg of marble is carried by an inflated metal cushion, in which it snugly sinks into.
Sweet and simple pink marble table by Sean Woolsey.
Kitchen accessory by Studio Lievito. The sphere crushes spices and salt. The cylinder rolls out the dough and beats the meat. The cube scales the skin of the fish. The prism provided with a sharp blade chops vegetables. Pretty cool!
