Frederique Morrel and her husband Aaron Levin are best known for their needlepoint covered fiberglass sculptures. The design duo scours garage sales and flea markets in search of vintage tapestries and discarded embroidery to create these one of a kind beauties. “We like materials that tell stories of simple, ideal happiness, and have been caressed by many hands.”
I just spent the last hour perusing Jennifer Sarkilahti‘s collection of delicate and organic jewelry. She begins each design with a pencil sketch which is then translated into wax, using ancient and modern carving techniques, before finally being cast in various metals. Be sure to check out a tour of Jennifer’s home at Design Sponge and more inspiring images from the Odette workshop at The Makers.
Do you remember that unforgettable scene in Auntie Mame with the fabulously far-fetched, post modern hydraulic benches designed by the fictional Danish designer Yul Ulu? Well, interior designer Kendall Wilkinson‘s hovering cantilevered benches, created for LUXE Magazine’s Maison de Luxe Show House, would have made Mame proud. The benches and the infinity mirror with bright yellow flowers are the show stopping features of this custom designed space. Honestly, wow.
