Extendable table

I usually don’t like extendable tables, they are just one of those things that’s not good either way. But today, after staring on onlyfurnitures for a good 20 mins, I discovered this extendable table design by Julien Vidame. Umm… perhaps they can be good both ways.

The one that got away

I confess, I have a soft spot for mid-century furniture. But as all vintage treasure hunters would know, the best ones are always the ones that got sold. Here is an example, I’ve been obsessively looking for this Garth Chester magazine rack from the first day I saw it on our friends’ Mr.Bigglesworthy website. What a beauty!

NZ Born

Here in New Zealand, we are blessed with some super talented designers. Recent furniture shopping for our house has forced me to boil them down to a list of my very favourites. To begin with:

Rekindle continues…

A while back we discovered Rekindle, a social enterprise with a mission to make a difference in the wastewood treatment. Now many months have passed, and the passion is still firing, with more helping hands. Go Rekindle!

Acutor Pencil Sharpener

There is something ceremonial about this pencil sharpener. Through the science flask, the ordinary sawdust for once becomes the subject of viewing. The manual movement of pencil sharpening becomes a ritual, a nostalgic act that ties to our pre-digital age. An A’ Design Awards winner by Jaeryoung Lee. Heart it!
