Laura Plageman

Tuesday, 28 October, 2014

California-based artist, Laura Plageman, has a really cool solo show on at the moment at De Soto Gallery in Venice, CA. Here’s an excerpt describing her work:

In the second installment of her Response series, Laura Plageman shifts her gaze from land to sea. With continued focus on the materiality of the photographic print, her new works oscillate between image and object, photography and sculpture, landscape and still life. Each piece is a “response” to an original image that is sculpted and collaged into a tabletop assemblage and then re-photographed. The final prints hover between being illusory and tangible, seemingly impossible but showing evidence of their actual construction.

A simple idea can have so much potential when executed properly. Makes us long for summer and the California coast. We’ve selected a few favorite pieces below but definitely check out her other work – she has a similar series that uses imagery of the land that is equally as enticing.

Color on the mind

Tuesday, 21 October, 2014

Here are a few objects we’ve come across lately that are pretty dreamy. It’s nice to bring color into a space with hard surfaces and materials, not just the soft ones. But we’ll still take silky pastel gradients and marble // crystal combos any day!

These Condesa chairs are made of recycled plastic and are super sturdy and resilient.

This award winning collection of colored blown glass bubble lights is pretty cool. It’s got me in the mood for some bubble gum ~ ~ ~

I wish I could find more info on this beautiful claw-foot-crystal table. Found on this blog but if anyone has any other info please let us know.

Iacoli and Mcallister’s wire side table comes in this awesome pink powder coated steel! It’s a great piece for modular stacking – or simply on it’s own as a side table.

Loft Living

Tuesday, 30 September, 2014

We came across this interesting project that combined two lofts on the Bowery into one beautiful home, with 17 foot ceilings may I add. Stunning millwork throughout, with bleached alderwood in the kitchen and knotty pine throughout the living space, this home is filled with a sense of vastness and light. The Akari pendant helps to ground the open space and provides a soft contrast to all the wood and hard surfaces. We also love the playful use of beach towels for bath towels!

Sight Unseen

Friday, 12 September, 2014

Sight Unseen is an online design magazine that curates and sells handmade goods from emerging designers. They are some of our favorite taste makers around so it’s no wonder that we are in love with their new fall collection. With a playful ode to Memphis style this collection embraces both form and function. Tons of texture and a mostly muted palette makes it easy to incorporate any of these items into your home – or onto your body! Two of our favorite pieces include the ceramic Donut Mobile and the Cone Lamp from Josephine Heilpern of Recreation Center. Pictured below are a few of our other top picks but click here to view the full collection.

To see these beauties in person, be sure to check out Sight Unseen’s pop up shop on the ground floor of the Space Ninety 8 project space at 98 N. 6th St, Williamsburg until October 5th. We’ll see you there!
