Nice site that. This looks like the pick of the bunch to me.

^ a couple of good links through their site too.


Biggest want at the moment is a vintage Anglepoise lamp. I have seen a very good one but it's top end but the more I search the more I see some really nice stuff, even more recently made…

favourites apart from the Angleposie that I'm considering buying..

The prints and the pink sofas look Ikea, especially the one with the dog. And that outdoor fireplace is just so nish nish. I would recommend looking at Ilse Crawford who has much more sophisticated styling and usage of colour palettes ftw.

dog picture features original george nelson daybed and og hm esu unit. two of the most iconic and coveted pieces of modern furniture from the 20th century. if ikea is your reference point, sure, very ikea as i'm sure they've ripped both off through the years. as for the artwork, i like the idea of having my walls looking like the cover of relax magazine, but i guess gm:s style is love or hate, don't see the ikea connection though. checked out that crawford lady, very elle decor, not my cup of tea.

Ikea connection is (and probably because they have done some ripping off over the years) simply because the whole bright furniture, ply wood, loud wallpaper and throws etc is something I associate heavily with them.

This is pretty cool; it's an interactive floor plan for the Casa son Vida project.

Does anyone think them rasterbator pictures look any good?

Just got the keys to my new place and there is a wall that I was planning on putting a fair sized canvas on (although it would probs have to be a generic one from IKEA) but looking at that site some of them look OK, and a bit more individual, but I cant help thinking that it looks a cheap & tacky.

Suppose it would depend on what image and how good the quality of the printer used was.

bodega does really oversized vinyl sticker art on the cheap, maybe something to look into as an alternative?
