Hayonish sofa

Hayon1

Jaime Hayon designed this sofa, named Vico (after the designers son), for Cassina. After researching the heritage of Italian design and by studying Cassina’s archives from 1950’s and 60’s he designed this retro:ish sofa in a contemporary context.

The result is a sofa (and an armchair) with fluid lines that will grace any home.

Baggu sale

Baggu Orchid.jpg

Baggu is having a sale. And what makes me jump of joy is that my fave leather Pouch and Baggu is on sale. Orchid. Lovely color. Happy color. The pouch was $40. Now $28. The leather Baggu was $160. Now $112. It is practically a steal.

The pouches I have I use for anything and everything. It either holds all my chords for the computer that I lug around or my makeup. Sometimes it is my clutch and other times I have my dog’s small stuff that I carry with me (you know, dog candy, dog bags, the clicker etc.). And it always works.

My leather Baggus are my spring/summer purses. Love’m all. And when it comes to the regular Baggus it holds-it-all when grocery shopping. Baggus is versatile to say the least.

XOXO,

The Baggu Fan of all times

WAMP is a hub for emerging Hungarian designers and presents them with an opportunity to show, and sell, their work.

WAMP has two “legs” (if you will) – design and gastro. The Gastro part is –as the name reveals – anything “edible” i.e. jams, chocolate, bread, wine, spirits, oils, sweets, cakes etc.  Important for the gastro section is that all fine food is nicely packaged, organic and served in style (oh, it also contains cool kitchenwares – not edible really, but handy when making all these nice gastronomical stuff in your own kitchen.

When you want to visit WAMP (among other things because there is sooo much more to see and do in Budapest – DMKA will keep you posted)

it is a good idea to stay at a cosy hotel with beautiful design in the central parts of Pest. We would like to recommend Estilo Fashion Hotel, right at Váca utca

Drip Tease teapot in gold from Reiko Kaneko –

 

driptease2

British-Japanese designer Reiko Kaneko wants to prove that the fine bone china industry has moved on from its twee reputation. Her world is not of 18th century figurines but of modern shapes that are typically witty or simple, Japanese inspired forms.

The influence of Kaneko’s early childhood spent in Japan is apparent in her ceramic tableware forms. After studying at Central St Martins, she established her design studio in London’s East End in 2007.

Her collections are often produced by combining 3D modeling programs with centuries-old expertise from makers in Stoke-on-Trent, England. Kaneko is passionate about her production being based in this city that’s known world-wide as the traditional home of pottery and, though much of the production has moved abroad in recent decades, there is still a vibrant hub of industry that Kaneko is keen to bring to the forefront of modern ceramic design.

Mansur Gavriel

Bucket1.jpg

I love bucket bags.

I had a bucket bag once, that I bought in Africa. I used it until it almost fell apart. And then it was used, and still is, some more by my daughter. To this day, it is still around. But I feel that it just might be time to get another beloved bucket bag. And I fancy this Mansur Gavriel bucket bag. I fancy it a lot.
