Habitat always used to do nice white aluminum frames, try homebase i think they're selling off their old stock

edit - they're called Aluminus on their site

total lack of imagination… surely you can get some prints of things you like rather than copying an arrangement that means nothing to you?

Sorry i was a bit vague,
i dont actually mean these exact pictures, just a webstore or something where i can browse and buy 'similar' products?
Ive tried searching specific pictures id like on ebay but not having much luck so far
Searching google for minimalist art or posters is doing great either
Any help would be greatly appreciated

for the hand drawn stuff, there must be some sites that deal in young/new illustrators work theres so many people doing that style of drawing,

Go outside and look round some some shops and galleries, you'll enjoy it.

I know this isn't helpful, but to my mind Art isn't really suited to internet shopping.

What are you looking to spend? Prints presumably?

when you say spots in the ceiling do you mean recessed lighting in general or just normal round spotlights you don't like?

recessed lights best option for small kitchen that's not tall imo

I mean recessed lights in ceiling, I just never seen ones I like, they just feel very 'new build' MFI but it is the best solution or a strip light with a nice casing which I guess I could have a box made for that in the ceiling, but even then I dont really think the kitchen is long enough for it, have to make a decision this month, guess can do once the kitchen design is finalised and we know what everything else is

Get LED bulbs if you can, spots always generate too much heat.
They generate hardly any heat and the life span of them is long.

Those Floss actually look pretty good surface mounted:

@astroboy - A mate at work just launched his website which is a showcase for artists and illustrators, as well as the cut&sew t-shirts he's got all the
original artworks to buy as well as screen prints.

floss wans are nice too, especially the recessed version. Had them bookmarked for the hall but we need too many, also philips do some pretty decent spots - also check out artimede architectural for similair boxed, track & recessed spots

Nice those lights, got lots of new LEDS fitted recently, soooo much better than trad spots, got to be careful with the colour range though, had to change some with weird tints.

What are people's thoughts on using industrial kitchen stuff in homes? Not fitted obviously but surprisingly cheap, pretty cool and fucking bombproof I should think.
