Tips + Tricks: Plants (+ a Case Study Planter Giveaway)

 

If you’re anything like me you’re home is slowly being taken over by a jungle of houseplants. I don’t have the greenest thumb, but I try to help it thrive and grow as much as possible by attempting to give them the right amount of water, feeding them occasionally, and reading up on anything that might help me out. (And when one kicks the bucket I replace it and move on.)

Roland Kiyola Piano

 

She’s not cheap, but maaaaaaaan is she pretty. I’m of course talking about the Roland Kiyola Piano. It’s a MoMA Design Store exclusive, handcrafted in Japan by furniture-maker Karimoku. The modern designed digital instrument is minimal all around, but with a sound reminiscent of an acoustic model. I’ve never regretted ending my piano lessons more!

Købn Towels

 

I’ve never seen a beach towel I would happy hang on my wall, but then I met Købn. Sophie Matson’s line of towels are designed with interior trends in mind rather than beach vibes. They feature fringey edges, drop pile stripes, and the prettiest muted color palette.

ZAKKIA

 

Australia has so much fantastic art and design happening at any given moment. ZAKKIA is on a mission to make the world a more beautiful place through good design, all of it crafted by hand. The Sydney-based studio was founded by former Swede Sara Lundgren, and it’s the place where the design she grew up around and her love of materials meet. The makers behind ZAKKIA’s wares are all family-owned studios located mostly in Vietnam as well as a few in India.

The material is really the guiding force behind many of our designs. Our inspiration often comes from a material’s texture, or thinking about using a material in a way that hasn’t been done before. You will never find anything fussy about our designs. We find beauty in function and we always try to design products that can be used in multiple ways in many rooms of your home.
