Roll-Out Table

 

THIS IS IT.

I’ve finally found the perfect table for the ever-entertaining host or hostess. Marcus Voraa‘s Roll-Out Table is beechwood crafted with a beeswax-treated surface, finished off with steel and canvas. The length of the table can be adjusted by sliding the end out and letting the tabletop follow, while the steel crank on the side is used to retract the length.

I wanted to try and represent the social arena that is the internet. The table is where we meet, get to know each other, discuss and share information in the real world. No matter whether it is around the dinner table, in the meeting room or at a conference, it is at the table where our parallel worlds meet, the physical and the digital.

Complements Modular Chocolates

 

What started as an end-of-year client thank you project by design studio Universal FavouriteComplements is now gauging interest in making their modular chocolates a for sale product. These tasty bites were created by combining 3D printing, design, and the help of Bakedown Cakery to make the flavor profiles like shortbread, blackcurrant, and fairy floss a reality. Wouldn’t you love to get your hands on a box?

Charlie Megna / Spaces and Places

 

Chicago-based artist Charlie Megna‘s work is all over the board, informed by satire, social commentary, and absurdities in the civilized world. Oh, and fun! His Spaces and Places series in gouache is one of my favorites. While maybe not inciting nervous laughter like a lot of Megna’s work, these rug laden roomscapes leave you wondering what kind of lives are lived within them.

Stephen Baker

 

It’s crazy to think how much can be expressed using only basic shapes and a minimal color palette, but that’s just where painter Stephen Baker excels. His In-Between Days series is a standout, depicting those small moments in every day when you’re in the moment without realizing it. Many of Stephen’s pieces are available as giclée prints so swing by his shop, then check out his portfolio for some fantastic installations.

Let’s Talk Chandeliers

Staggered Glass Chandelier

Lighting is perhaps the element I most look forward to when designing a room – the right finish, the perfect glow, everything comes together to set the mood in that just right way. Chandeliers in particular are the icing on the proverbial cake of decorating, and I don’t think they’re utilized often enough. Think past the dining room and entryway to the bathroom, the bedroom, and beyond to take any room to the next level.

Kelly Bjork / Blankets

 

Kelly Bjork‘s series of Blankets is minimalistic and effective. I love that depending on what time of year you’re looking at these gouache paintings you might think of cozy evenings in front of a fire or lazy days spent sprawled on the beach.

OPUS Cycles

 

Though I don’t get out on my cruiser as often as I’d like, I’m forever ogling well-designed bicycles. My latest crushes are Ecce Cycles‘s OPUS carbon frame bikes. One is a cruiser, one is a sport, and one is electric – all three offering the perfect balance of function, style, and efficiency. And if you don’t ride, well, the design definitely qualifies as art!
