M'kay, so the guys over at Porsche got wise to the baby making game and came out with The Porsche Design P'4911 stroller ... and it's not that bad ... but is it comfortable and able to 'corner like it's on rails?'
for all you guys! I know my posts have been really few and far between. Life, family and work have taken my full attention these days. One project that I am in the final stages of, is for 2 brothers and their individual bedrooms. I'm going to share a sneak peak of J's room. The pics are a bit rough but you'll get the idea. He's part time rock star, part time basketball player and full time energy. I wanted to make a space that could adapt to his particular interests. This custom unit features a high-loft that you can turn into a lounge area or bed. Below can serve as a bed as well that is on casters in case he wants to move the bed position. Or, if he kept his bed up top, the platform turns into a giant play table. There is also a sliding hanging guitar panel to keep them safe and sound when not in use. He has tons of built-in storage and lighting through-out! Did I mention the basketball court as well?? I'll share some pics from G's room soon! Cheers -jenn
Last summer I was approached, by the fine people at Appaman, to come up with the Retail Concept that could translate into a brick and mortar, a section inside a department store or stand alone kiosk. The direction was to create a balance of Scandinavian design mixed with a hint of vintage, a dash of modern and a nod to NYC street style. I am very happy to announce that Appaman HK just opened it's doors in Central Hong Kong! Below is where the project started and then to it's grand opening only weeks ago! More images HERE.
The Loog Guitar is a D.I.Y kit from Rafael Atijas. His kickstarter campaign is going amazingly well! . Its a real guitar, that plays real music! The kit is intended to bond parent and child to build and create music! Given the success already on Kickstarter, you can pre-order your kit for $150. Money well spent i'd say.
Ive been working with some clients as of late, where toy storage has been high on the to-tackle list. Here are two gems that I wanted to pass along! One is the Kartel Componibili Laundry Basket. Yes, a clothes hamper turned into a dope tabletop with a pull-out storage bin! The second is THIS felt bin from Muuto. Oh la la!
Check out the Minor Details Design Stop over on Amazon. You can click HERE or over on the right hand side of the blog....just up there ... under "Wanna see more?"
I've been busy as of late so my apologies for slow posts. Ive been working on some amazing projects. Some I can't share just yet, some i've yet to photograph, and some still in the works! In the mean time, I thought I'd share a few sneak peaks of a residential project out in Los Angeles. This is a custom bookcase/storage unit I designed along with the customized indoor play structure from CedarWorks. Take note of one really important feature in this space - the puzzle soft-tile wood grain flooring! More coming soon......
San Francisco based designers Gitane Royce and Nisreen Witt are the genius minds behind Modern Playhouse. They set out to design and produce a simple and modern outdoor playhouse that is not too insanely priced. They currently have two models available and also offer furniture and accessories to outfit your playhouse. You had me at sophisticated, sustainable and safe!
This a is phrase that is usually followed by a stern look of caution ... and luckily, I've yet to muster this to my own child. Yet the list of "phrases my mom used to say" are certainly starting to surface. So, when I stumbled upon this product designed by student Emanuel Cohen, I was impressed to see a candle and crayon making nice. The design is stellar and execution on point. The only question is - how long is the wick? It would be great if the crayon could way out live the candle.
Not too long ago, I admitted that I had fallen in love with a treehouse. Well, this morning my love grew a bit deeper for THIS outdoor-cross stream-awesome-sanctuary-in-the woods-shelter. It makes me want to move to a place that has a stream in the back yard...... if only to re-create something like this.
While scouting for playful rugs for a client, these two from Amy Helfand really stood out. Her rugs are hand-knotted in Nepal with Tibetan wools and Chinese silks. And yes, they are all hand-carded, hand-spun and pot-dyed under the guidelines of GoodWeave, ensuring that no child labor is used in the production of her rugs.
