Suited to the Suita from Vitra

There is every chance I would sell a child for this lounge suite (that would leave me with one junior-burger left to "play with") 
It ticks all my lounging boxes with correct amounts of oooh's and ahhhh's.  The mixture of white and colour - just perfecto.

At this angle, masterful

...yes, this angle too.  Helllllooooo owl cushie - can I have you please?

Yes, I see you can do dichromatic and still look stunning

I don't normally go the beige way but yes you even look amazing in neutrals.  That tie-dyed rug is the shiz.

New technology in sofa's - now with pop-up pillows!

playful in yella

and multi talented too - yes you look good in anything.  You are a clothes horse in the sofa world

Vitra is available in NZ from Cite Furniture Solutions in Auckland or you can always get them through moi!

Hungry for Design? Yummmmo..

Love a good crossover and it always makes me proud as punch when a fav designers/companies ventures into a new arena.  Check these puppies out:

Go Donna go!  Donna Wilson is best known for knitted creatures but now you can eat them!  Gotta say it - what a clever cookie!
Japanese department store - Isetan stock them for a limited time only.  Oh so beautiful...

Yes those are edible.

Speaking of food and design - check out the new cookbook from IKEA

images from todayandtomorrow

The cookbook is called “Hembakat är Bäst” (Homemade is Best). Carl Kleiner was asked to shoot the recipes. The styling of the ingredients by Evelina Bratell, looks great.

While we are on Carl Kleiner - he is another clever chappy with food

Right.  I'm off for lunch.

BYO Lego Land

Rumpleyummyskins - not much else to add apart from I WANT IT. 

All these images are from woohome

These masterpieces of colour are the creations from two Parisian designers Simon Pillard and Philippe Rosetti.  They used two scando icons to produce this kitchen island bench and accessories.

They took a basic IKEA kitchen unit and used 20,000 bits of lego to cover it.  Simple but fancy (my fav combo).
Check out the chair legs - want those too.... off to raid my kids lego sets.

If you fancy having a go - you can get yourself IKEA right here in little ol' enzed.  Check out these clever clogs that import for you!  They used to be called MyIKEA but are now going by MyFlatpack - find them at

If you want LEGO - get some from Fishpond

No excuses now...
