Going Minimalist

Lamps.com-1-Design-Crush

 

As I prep my house to go up on the market at some point this year, I’m realizing more and more about how my style has evolved since I moved in nearly six years ago. I’ve always been a tchotchke and accessories kind of girl but I’m thinking that’s going to change. I’ve gotten a head start on packing up a lot of smaller things, which has got me thinking about my next home and how I’d like it to be. My house is already more pared down than usual and I have to say, I’m loving it. Piece by piece I’ve been making small changes here and there, choosing things that serve more than one purpose. Am I becoming what I’ve always longed to be – a minimalist?

Case in point is the newest addition to my lamp addiction – Sonneman‘s Level Table Lamp. I love the mixed materials used in the design and that it’s not as feminine as a lot of other pieces in my home. Because it’s so sculptural it feels like form and function in one. Not to mention just how fantastic it looks atop the vintage Danish modern credenza in my living room! I have a feeling that this is a sign of how my decorating choices are going to be from now on.

Howkapow Spring Collection

Bristol, England-based Howkapow brings a smile to my face every time I visit them online. Their shop is full of innovative, fun, interesting work from breakthrough talent as well as a few carefully-chosen independent, family-run brands. There’s an ever-changing collection of unusual pieces at affordable prices, and their spring collection was just recently released so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you.

In the blogging world few things make me smile ear to ear like a “coworker” taking their love of making to a new level. We Make Stuff is the new venture of Funkytime founder Sibylle and her equally creative brother. The Berlin-based business creates high-quality handcrafted one of a kind pieces for urban interiors with wood, concrete, steel, and textiles as their signature trademark.
