I was browsing Illustration Friday yesterday and was happy to find a great interview with illustrator extraordinaire Yuko Shimizu from a few months back. I really admire her beautiful work. Be sure to have a look at Yuko's website, too.
Lotta Jansdotter Sale
To make way for the Fall & Winter 2008 line, Lotta Jansdotter is having an end of season sale, with up to 60% off on most of her current collection. Better move quickly, though, as it always sell out fast! Start shopping here.
Based in Vancouver, Lushpad describes itself as " ... a unique online home for lovers of mid-century Modern furniture, accessories and related objects ... where buyers and sellers can connect at every price point." And if you sign up with them (for free!) before October 20th 2008, you’ll be entered to win a licensed original Eames molded plywood chair worth over $750, too. Sign up and get more info here.
DINO from Kayiwa Oy
I've featured the elegant work of Helsinki-based designer Lincoln Kayiwa in Pot-Pourri before, and recently he emailed me about his newest product -- the DINO clothes rack. Deceptively simple, this playful design has a lot of versatility -- in homes, the differently sized hangers mean that children as well as adults can use them easily, while in public places the numbered hangers allow for easy coat checking. Find out more about DINO at the Kayiwa Oy website.
Pot-pourri is a selection of emails I've received recently about upcoming art shows, new shops, the latest in the design world, fashion, books and other good things. Hope you also find something here of interest!
