...each time discovering something you missed the first time.
my philosopy when it comes to fashion,
(whether for the body or for the home)
is that style is a matter of taste,
and you either have it,
or you don't.
if style is something that doesn't
come naturally to you,
you essentially have two choices:
fake it and hope that no one notices
or leave it to the experts.
whose gorgeous website offers a distinctive collection
of hand made art, sculpture, textiles, furniture, lighting & more
from artists whom she discovered and hand.picked
on her extensive travels thoughout europe.
one of the most unique offerings on the website,
is the astoundingly glamorous work of british artist,
literally turning other people's trash into treasure,
ms. brand collects hundreds of recycled plastic bottles a day,
reclaiming and repurposing the floral patterns found at the
bottom of each one, by cutting them out, sanding them down,
tagging them together to produce fabrics and chandeliers
that are both stunning and sustainable.
another bright star found on lisa fontanarosa's
spectactular web page are the feather.light, wire sculptures and
lighting fixtures of parisian artist, marie christophe.
chanel bag, sculpture
chandelier for dior
bird cages for roger vivier
horse sculptures for hermes
with the claim,
" i look at life the same way i look at art,
with a childlike sense of wonder and imagination,"
lisa definitely proves herself right with her choice to represent
parisian architect, claude jeantet and her zoo
of corrugated cardboard sculptures
which seem to defy the laws of cuteness
while at the same time upholding the highest standards
of sustainability and greenness.
get any of these cute sculptures here.
textile designer, bonita ahuja,
weaves the beauty of her indian heritage and life's travels
into every piece that she makes.
her pillows are hand appliqued with vintage trim,
and a bit of glitter that will make any home
a happy one.
another favorite from this website (there are so many!)
are the colorful textiles, cozy cushions, and cut out screens
of swedish duo, adam & viktoria.
their pieces are vintage inspired, contemporary,
and oh so very cool.
i want all of their throw pillows, like, right now!!
paradise tree screen, metal
