Octopus Chair

Spanish artist Maximo Riera is a renaissance man. Photographer, painter, sculptor, and even a published poet has now finished his first piece in his animal chair collection. I can’t wait to see what animal he does next. I would love an elephant chair, how about you?

DIY Gucci Tassel Belt

When Erica and I spotted tassels, tassels, tassels and more tassels accessorizing the Spring 2011 collections, there was no doubt that we wanted to do a DIY incorporating this beloved fringe ornament. Inspired by the tassels seen in Sonia Rykiel and Gucci‘s Spring Collections, we’ll teach you how to make a tassel belt with leather and a few items from the hardware store.

You’ll need:
- at least 2.5 yards of rope
- 2 pieces of leather of a similar color measuring 3.5 x 4.5 inches (we cut a purchased 3.5″ x 9″ leather piece, from Michaels, in half)
- 2 small nuts
- 2 half inch compression nuts from the hardware store
- 4 wooden beads
- a glue gun
- a ruler
- a pen
- a pair of sharp scissors
