Chefs EcoWall Garden by EcoWalls from Wheelock Maidique
The popularity of not only cooking with fresh, organic ingredients but also the resurgence in the home garden has led chefs, designers, and manufacturers alike to explore new methods in which to incorporate gardens to indoor environments in order to ensure a year round supply of fresh staples. Living walls, inset troughs, and basic planters are all common solutions. Chuck Wheelock and Mark Alex Maidique, proprietors of Connecticut kitchen design company Wheelock Maidique are adding one more possibility with the launch of their Chefs EcoWall Garden by EcoWalls. Blending form & function with the incorporation of luxury finishes and hydroponic planting methods, the EcoWall Garden provides for an architecturally suitable solution to indoor gardening for the architecturally significant kitchen - perfect for the modern home chef.
Custom Fabrics by Designer April Elizabeth for AzureElizabethDesign
Salt Lake City based interior designer April Elizabeth has always looked to her assemblages for the clients of her firm Azure Elizabeth Design with an artistic eye. Originally setting out to be an artist before turning to interiors, each of her projects features something special be it a piece of hand-painted art or specially designed fabric. Through textile mill Spoonflower, her Vintage Love Birds pattern is now available for purchase. Available in eight stunning colorways (my favorite is "Delft") the inspired design starts at $17.50 per yard for combed cotton to $38.00 per yard for Silk Crepe de Chine.
The Argyle Collection by Gina Lubin for Du Verre, The Hardware Co.
Easily one of the world's most beloved patterns having been applied to everything from socks to upholstery to interior tile work, Argyle has once again become center stage providing the decorative element enhancing the Argyle Collection, designed by Gina Lubin for Canadian hardware supplier Du Verre Hardware Company. Simplified, the pattern offers a strong graphic pattern of small diamonds, reminiscent of a simple basket weave or the leather work of a Gucci handbag. A choice of three finishes and four sizes of pulls and knobs are available, all featuring Du Verre's environmentally friendly methods of manufacture.
Prop Light by Bertjan Pot for Moooi
The widespread implementation of the LED lightsource is quickly leading designers to work new methods of expression in the world of lighting. Designer Bertjan Pot, known for simple graphic forms and playful expressions, looked to create a bubbly form meant to brighten up just about any environment. With the current trend leading to spheres and oversized bubbles, Pot's Prop Light for Moooi offers an ethereal quality, using specially developed optics to minimize the typical look of standard LEDs. The Prop Light is available as a pendant or freestanding fixture.
Quadro Collection by Marcel Wanders for Bisazza
If there is one designer who could be called a veritable fountain of design youth, that designer would be Marcel Wanders, Dutch genius of industrial design and creative director of Moooi. Presented during Italy's Cersaie, the Bloem Rosso washbasin vanity and shelf unit, part of the forthcoming Quadro Collection for luxury mosaics brand Bisazza, is designed to awaken the spirit on a cold morning and spark imagination in what could easily be the dullest room in the house. Available starting January 2015, the Quadro collection will also include a side table for the living room.
