i think that everyone who is interested in design should own at least one mid-century modern piece. an iconic piece. an original work. a little decadent piece of history.

for me it the eames rocker by charles & rey eames. this is the perfect addition to any home for 2 reasons; first its a classic that you will never get tired of weather you sit in it or not and second its price point is affordable for any level of collector or design savvy student.

this will be my first purchase of an original mid-century design. now all i need to figure out is what color to get! im leaning towards white or a classic like pale yellow... any thoughts.

im a lover of the plain white wall so what better way to add a touch of creativity then with a wall decal. these lovebirds are the prefect little addition to this dining space. simple, original and just enough art to keep your eye interested but not overwhelmed. this and other wall decals can be found at

lately i have been dreaming of the day when i get to move out into my own place again and take full control of the design. i already have my sofa picked out at inform interiors along with my vision for the entire living room and hopes for a fabulous office space.

one can dream from beneath the odds and ends of their parents basement right?
so to all of you who do own your own apartment and are wanting to add something to your wall that is not a painting check out this site!

its not exactly patio season but these darling little chairs are just too sweet to pass up. designed by patricia urquiola for the italian manufacturer emu this outdoor collection is hard to miss in brightly painted red, yellow, teal, pink and white. chairs and planters crafted in the perfect size for your downtown apartment patio or if you are so lucky as to own a small patch of grass how lovely these would look among the flowers. kinda makes me wish inform carried the line so i could take some home with me!
