Attention designers! Italian furniture company Porada has recently announced its “Porada Furniture Design Award 2012,” an international design ideas competition through which Porada is looking to find innovative design concepts for a living area in which wood is a prevalent design element and a collection is presented that embodies “the values and the identity of Porada production.”
When you hear the term “beehive,” what comes to mind? A hairstyle from decades ago, or perhaps honey bees? Most likely, a lighting fixture doesn’t cross your mind, but one of the newer Foscarini lamps is changing what we see when we think of a beehive.
We often place the spotlight on designers in the Boston area with whom we have had the honor of collaborating with, or hope to collaborate with in the future, and today we would like to draw your attention to our friends Amanda Hark and Jeff Osborne of Hark + Osborne Interior Design, where the duo serve as principals of the firm.
Today we would like to share with you a project that we had the privilege of working on here in Boston – Alden Castle. The space, located in the legendary Longwood Towers, was originally known as the Veronique Ballroom. In keeping with the space’s history, Alden Castle will continue to be a premiere event venue in Boston.
We have professed our love for Foscarini light fixtures many times here on our blog, and we must say that we absolutely love one of the newer and more unique designs Foscarini has created – the Anisha Lamp.
If you’ve been reading our blog for a good length of time, then you know how much we love the beautiful and innovative lighting fixtures from Foscarini, so we naturally take note of who’s in love with these fabulous pieces.
Take a look at this gorgeous home located in Old Jaffa, Tel Aviv. Dezeen magazine featured this unique space on its website earlier this week and we simply adore it. The flat, which was designed by Pitsou Kedem, features stunning architecture and absolutely breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea.
We are still reflecting on the great times we had while attending the ICFF a few weekends ago. While there, we had the distinct pleasure of having dinner with Dirk Wynants of Extremis!
We love seeing new, innovative takes on the familiar.
That would include this picnic table from Extremis. With the Hopper Table, designer Dirk Wynants literally twisted the bench and table configuration inta a fully functional design that also turns out to be very sturdy and very eye catching.
We are so excited to see Casa Design‘s MDF Italia Achille armchair, which first debuted right here on our blog, on the just-launched New England Home blog this week!
We are just tickled that interior designer Ken Dietz, of Jamaica Plain, Mass., listed a piece from the Casa Design showroom on his product wish list in a feature in the November/December 2010 issue of New England Home! The self-proclaimed lighting lover revealed he is eying our Anta Lighting “Afra 03” lamp for a project.
