frederik kurzweg design studio

trained as a cabinet maker, german artist and furniture designer frederik kurzweg worked on bent metal pieces in completing his masters of arts program...
utilizing materials such as vinylester resins, polyester & epoxy, "reinforced with glass and carbon fibers", frederik has created some incredibly interesting & innovative furniture and lighting objects. i'm especially drawn to his "superpose pendant lamp in blush pink." love this! see more of frederik's work here & enjoy...

fur for fall

embracing the fall weather, i'm super excited to pick up a coat with either a faux fur collar or hood trim. there is something about the look that transports me back to childhood, and playing outside in the bitter cold weather. remember when the faux fur around the hood would get all clumpy with snow?

these were a few of my grown up favorites. (links to each above) enjoy!

i heard this song the other day in the car. an oldie but goodie, but this version really stopped me (love the strings!)...

have a great weekend!

so it's officially fall. and things like sipping hot coffee, taking a little bit of an extra long warm shower and wearing jeans are all things that i'm embracing this week...
it's not that i fight the change of seasons, i just happen to reaaaaaaaallly love summer. so it's hard. the adjustment i mean. but i'm caving. ;) i hope that you too are embracing the change of air, temperature and light right now. there is in fact something sort of quiet, and peaceful about it all.

are you up to anything fun this fall weekend? i'm changing out my closet, possibly shopping for a few new fall items to replace old ones. not terribly exciting! and i'm in the mood for a movie. any recommendations? have a GREAT weekend friends!

and it's friday, so some fun finds from around the world wide web:

a seriously beautiful bathroom.

vacation inspiration.

a wow space

a cool idea.

looks delish!

maybe THE best doorstop.

this is neat too.

a different planter stand, but i like it.

creating a cursive word balloon backdrop, a super fun party idea!

leather chair love.

these for dining room chairs, yes please!

grown up grilled cheese sandwiches (spinach, swiss & onion marmalade?! oh yeah!).

this would be a fun do-it-yourself project with kids.

wow, this pedestal table.

a rosé slushee? sounds amazing.

i'd like to put this away for next summer.

THESE suede clogs.

an interesting list of books to consider for fall.

speaking of books, i want this "100 girls on cheap paper" coffee table book.

a gorgeous tote.

loving her wire mesh embroidery installations.

i never thought i'd wear a leather trench, until this.

it's okay. i liked this post. "it sometimes feels like we’re being tricked into thinking everyone else around us has it all figured out. we assume people just know “these things” and we’re expected to just know about x, y, and z. the older we get, the more we’re realizing it’s not true."

missana seating

missana is a spain-based design studio with a very strong market in france. but today, product this good, of this quality and craftsmanship is sought after worldwide. missana caught my attention this week, as not only an innovative line, but a line with a little bit of flare that is original to this particular company. these were a few of my favorite seating options offered up by missana...
i'm drawn to the bold & daring color palette combinations, the out of the ordinary line or shape to some of missana's designs. i love companies and designers that push the boundaries, of what's normal (if there is such a thing), of what has come before it, and of what's expected. i love that. enjoy!

allied maker

man oh man there is some amazing lighting coming out of new york these days and allied maker is another equally amazing find of mine...
here's a little bit about them, husband and wife team ryden & lanette rizzo. ryden designs each piece and each piece is constructed in allied maker's workshop. "allied maker developed a hand-applied blackening process, satin brass finish, and smooth yet deeply textured wood finishes." and wow. i am particularly drawn to their sconce lighting as i really love the way they protrude and interact with the flat wall space most.

but i again, had to stop myself from posting every single image they share, of each piece, they are all that spectacular. this is what i'm talking about friends, adding into your spaces, whether residential or commercial, important, thoughtful pieces like this. it makes all the difference. enjoy!
