It was love at first sight when I discovered the Loop Shelf by Amandine Chhor for Petite Friture, because it has got the perfect dimensions to be hanged above your bed, desk or sofa! It’s the result of a research made in a factory specialized in soldered steel wire, on how to generate new curves by optimizing the constraints of the industrial production of storage trolleys. I just love the idea of putting my favourite photos or postcards between the wires. Loop Shelf comes in two colours – lemon yellow or white – and will be available from September on.
This mobile from Anve, made of slate (smoothed by the ocean at the Vicentine Coast), wire, green glas and cobalt blue plastic found on the beach in Sétubal, in front of a wide open window. Gently moved by a warm summer breeze. Me lying on the sofa after a long day outside. Perfection.
Yesterday I got a very nice e-mail from Eva and Brigitte, two Bavarian sisters. Just like me they have a huge passion for rare vintage objects and my jaw drapped when I opened the link to their lovely Jumble-Shop: a stunning selection of perfectly displayed vintage vases, funny old toys, candle holders, enamel kitchenware and other fancy items. Good news for all my oversea readers: they also ship worldwide on request. And did I already mention that I love the idea of two sisters working together?
