Issey Miyake x Iittala

Ittala x Issey Miyake-1-Design Crush

 

Designers love Japanese fashion house Issey Miyake, and now they’ve partnered with Finnish brand Iittala to create a range of homeware which includes pleated place mats, tote bags, and more. The collaboration – Issey Miyake x Iittala – has been in development for four years and includes thirty textile, ceramic, and glass pieces for the home. The technology developed for use in the pleating is fascinating, employing a technique that uses steam to pleat the fabric into origami-like patterns as well as a process that involves baking material in an oven. And that pastel palette? Perfect for spring.

Chris Earl

Chris Earl-1-Design Crush

 

Chris Earl‘s upbringing in Papua New Guinea instilled in him a respect for creating objects to fulfill a purpose, create a story, and build community. He puts it all into play in his line of furniture, tabletop, and ceramics where that trifecta is the guiding light. Functional, graceful, and timeless.

Knot Pillows-1-Design Crush

 

These Knot Pillows look straight outta the ’90s, in a good way of course! One long tube tied up in a massive knot, then splatter painted for good measure. Perfect for sleepovers, pillow fights, and cuddling.

Fundamental Berlin

Fundamental Berlin-1-Design Crush

 

In my mid-20s I had picture frames everywhere. On the walls and on shelves, featuring friends and family as well as anything else I deemed frame-worthy. At some point I abandoned all but one of me and my mom in a photobooth when I was a few months old. Nothing has managed to change my ways, but then I came across these brass and steel standout beauties from Fundamental Berlin and I think I’m beginning to see the light.

One of the main rules I follow when decorating my own space is this – keep walls and furniture neutral so you can go crazy with accessories. Laura Slater‘s arrestingly bold textiles that focus on the intersection of color and shape are just the kind I’d like to throw into that role.

Jaymee Srp‘s mid-century inspired art and designs are everything I love. The patterns that grace her line of print and paintings, wall hangings, pillow and linens, pouches, and calendars are bold, graphic, and entrancing with the fresh color palettes she gravitates towards.
