Rug Pads

Friday, 24 July, 2015

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.

ESKAYEL AND SHUTTERS ON THE BEACH TEAM-UP TO LAUNCH EXCLUSIVE BEACH TOWEL & CUSTOM SURFBOARD

Monday, 6 July, 2015

webWIDE_shutters_beach_towelSFWhen Shutters on the Beach, LA’s renowned luxury seaside hotel, asked me to partner on an exclusive beach towel for the hotel I couldn’t believe it! It was so exciting to get to design for a place that so perfectly captures the essence of luxurious seaside travel for its guests and is based in California where I am from.

The two-color, reversible jacquard towel is a vibrant addition to the hotel experience as Shutters makes it their signature beach-and-pool-side accessory this summer.

The towel is now available to Pre – Order online for $68.

Marble

Tuesday, 23 June, 2015

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.

Rocking Chairs

Friday, 24 April, 2015

Rocking chairs are often restricted to nurseries because they make complete functional sense in there. But take a look at some of these beautiful vintage and new rockers below – they might just make you rethink the role of the rocker. We’re not going to deny that a lot of these would be perfect in a nursery – but many of them would also be perfect in a living space, a corner of a home office, a master bedroom….

April showers bring May flowers

Tuesday, 14 April, 2015

On this grey spring day we must remember that wet weather is what our flowers need to bloom. Here is an inspiring reminder.

Falling Garden is a beautiful installation by Swiss artists Gerda Steiner and Jorg Lenzlinger where a diverse collection of botanical oddities are suspended within a 17th Century Venetian church. One of the coolest things about this piece is that despite it’s aesthetic appeal and dainty whimsy, these objects are incredibly unexpected and sourced from all over the world. Some examples include: plastic berries from India, waste paper from Venice, thorns from Almeria, nylon blossoms from a dollar store, pigs’ teeth from Indonesia, seaweed from Seoul, pigeons’ bones from San Staë, silk buds from Stockholm, wild bore quills from the zoo and rubber snakes from Cincinnati…! It’s also cool that visitors were invited to view the installation by lying on the floor.

Ai Weiwei’s beautiful and conceptual work titled “Blossom” consists of intricate white ceramic flowers oozing from dilapidated spaces. It has been installed on Alcatraz and several hospital ward cells and medical offices. His comment on the piece does a better job conveying the meaning behind the work then I ever could so I’ll leave it at that: “The misconception of totalitarianism is that freedom can be imprisoned. This is not the case. When you constrain freedom, freedom will take flight and land on a windowsill.”

TeamLab has created a now familiar (thanks to Random International’s Rain Room) interactive installation with over 2300 alive and growing floating flowers. As in the rain room, the work responds to human presence, highlighting the idea that the viewer and the flowers are of the same root.
