tricoire designs!

Lead designer, Alexis Tricoire, was born in Paris and founded Tricoire Designs back in 1996.  Since then he has been creating beautiful architecture and installations through the creative use of greenery.

This teepee is definitely one of my favorites!!  The space is very much intimate and at the same time extremely social.

How fun!

pillowtalk!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY

I just love this Pillow Talk invention by Joanna Montgomery.  It’s a creative way to connect long distance lovers through their heartbeat!

Each person wears a ring sensor to bed which wirelessly communicates with your partner’s pillow.  When one person goes to bed the other person’s pillow begins to glow softly to indicate their presence.  And once you lay down to cuddle with your glowing pillow you hear and feel the real-time heartbeat of your loved one.

Unfortunately this product is not yet on the market but my fingers are crossed that it isn’t too long before distant lovers are able to connect intimately!

mth woodworks!

MTH Woodworks is to thank for these beautiful pieces!  Design duo Michael Host and Tanja Hinder from Vancouver combine salvaged tree stumps and branches with organic resin, creating truly one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. MTH Woodworks’ mission is, “to connect people with BC’s beautiful surroundings by fusing together raw natural elements with organic resin.”

I love that each piece is unique and have their own beautiful characteristics. What a bummer that currently there are no LA distributor but hopefully there will be soon – my fingers are crossed!!
