Lostine : The New Shaker

I have been meaning to share this brand discovery for a year now. I saw Lostine at my first visit to the New York Gift Fair in 2012 and I just haven’t been able to get them out of my head. A Philadelphia based furniture and lighting brand, Lostine uses simple materials and is inspired by early […] Read more…

Good Looking Sofa Beds!

Is it just me or has the sofa bed been the least appealing piece of furniture to invest in for as long as time began? Uncomfortable on both sitting and sleeping counts and unsure of its identity – sofa beds are generally a bit of a pain in the ass and often an afterthought. However, […] Read more…

New Ikea Stockholm 2013

I just can’t help getting a little excited when Ikea’s higher-end label tastes. The fact that Ikea furniture is the basis for the majority of Swedish homes [i have interviewed many Swedish homeowners with fabulous houses so i know this] just makes it feel all that more authentic… Anyway here is a preview of Ikea […] Read more…

Ariele Alasko: Brooklyn Wood

Since thinking about flooring has taken up 30% of my brain activity this past month, this will probably be my last post on anything wood/floor related for this year! Whilst after careful consideration we went for classic honey coloured Oak floorboards I know I will always wish we had been a bit more adventurous. I […] Read more…

Superfolk

I love the fresh and simple style of Irish design studio Superfolk based in Dublin. The studio’s products are a tribute to their country and reference a way of life rooted in the land, its animals and its weather whilst also striving to emulate the sensitivity and sustainability of the vernacular approach. The studio is […] Read more…

Restyled

We’ve featured the small jewels and treasures of All The Luck in the World before here on the The Beat That My Heart Skipped and since then Jane Schouten, creator and curator has gone on to create more objects in the form of ‘restyled’ homewares. She takes vintage and found furniture and breathes new life […] Read more…

I’m loving these nature inspired oak veneered and stone slab ‘Flint’ units from Habitat – I’m so excited by the presence of the smooth stone panels in these products – so luxurious and original for a high street brand! Read more…
