Stripping elements of its decorative excess in the pursuit of minimalism can oftentimes results in an undesireably cold or harshly stark effect.  Not so in the case of line of bathroom furniture designed by Danish group Norm Architects for retailer Ex.t.  The Stand Collection's white, oblong basins with their no-fuss straight sides and cross-braced metal stands in matte black find themselves rooted in the fundamentals of the 1920's and 1930's Modernist Style as well as the cast iron fittings of Victorian era plant stands, resulting in an architecturally elegant series infused with a delicate and uniquely feminine undertone.  The Stand Basin & Bathtub are complemented by the rigid elements of the Felt Modular Shelving & Storage System, a collection of wall hung painted metal shelves whose only element of excess might be the available round mirror, resulting in storage which, in the words of the architects, are "beautiful and sculptural yet at the same time light and airy."

Josephine Bunkbed by AFK Furniture

It was during a preview of this year's Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts that we discovered AFK Fine Furniture for Children.  It was a heavily carved bed with tufted pink velvet head and footboard overlooked by a ceiling height demi-canopy that played center stage in the Young Girl's Suite (see more from this year's PSHA in our preview HERE).  We drooled.  We gushed.  We were jealous.  Expanding on their extensive collection designed exclusively for tots and tweens, High Point's Fall market saw the introduction of AFK's Josephine Bunkbed.  Blending traditional French elements, soft distressed finishes, and unlimited customization, Josephine makes it acceptable once again to claim the top bunk.

The finale of AMC's Mad Men may signal the end to our weekly visits to a 1960's era Sterling Cooper, however the newly introduced Atomic Era inspired Mid Century Mad collection from commercial carpet mill Patcraft, ensures that we needn't actually say good-bye.  Orbital and Futura, both exclusively a modular carpet tile, reinterpret the motifs and abstract organic forms of the Mid Century era into a high-performance flooring solution available in 9 understated colors.  Backed in Patcraft's exclusive EcoWorx tile backing and milled from 100% Solution Dyed Eco Solution Q Nylon, Mid Century Mad ensures durability where heavy use is concerned.  There's only one problem.  Joan not included.

It might be said that designer Tom Dixon may be the king of the pendant, his sculptural designs finding their way into the most venerable of interiors.  The DCM office has coveted his copper pendants for years. Also making an introduction during Milan Design Week, four new pendants make their way into the Tom Dixon catalog - Cog, Etch 50, Lens, and Melt - each featuring a highly developed, unique personality.  While Cog makes use of milled copper and forms inspired by geometric elementalism, and Etch 50 sports a pierced metal faceted shade, Lens and Melt morph glass elements into retro inspired configurations (Lens) and free-form blobs (Melt).  All four series are available in a variety of shapes and sizes as well as light sources.
