Paddling Home

Hong Kong artist Kacey Wong has created a tiny floating house as part of the
Hong Kong & Shenzhen bi-city Biennale of Urbanism/Archicture,
I personally am enamoured with the boat in the background?
is it someones little floating garden?

Flat-packed tree house

Utrecht designers Rogier MArtens and Sam van Veluw have designed this incredible
flat-packed tree house that can be attached to the trunk of a tree...
Called Zelfbouwboomhut (build-it -yourself-treehouse)
it is every childs dream come true......

Favourite things

This fabulous new light 'Favourite Things' is designed to display treasured objects,
designed by Stockholm studio Chen Karlsson,
I think it's brilliant and my mind is already thinking of what I would put inside if I had one?

Patricia Urquiola magic

Ok, so I thought the birdcage hanging chair was amazing,
well this certainly rivals it for the title of 'best hanging chair'
Patricia Urquiola for Moroso has designed this 'tropicalia cocoon' hanging chair
and from where I am standing it is looking completely fabulous......
and I have the perfect oak tree to hang it in....
pity it's 4,000 euro
