Gothic Glow

gothicglow.jpgPerhaps even above the proper soundtrack, light is the key ingredient to a successful domain (work, play or otherwise). It's time to head back to the lab with these clever lights from Gothic Glow.  With steampunk all the rage, you'll be able to accessorize with a subtle nod to Artemus Gordon.

The Wolseley


Alas, we haven't had the opportunity to visit in person, but if the cake stand alone is any indication, it is not to be missed.

"The Wolseley was created by Chris Corbin and Jeremy King in 2003 in the style of the Grand Café normally only found on the Continent. The original building was commissioned in 1921 by Wolseley Cars as their West End showroom and was designed by William Curtis Green in the Art Deco style of the time. In keeping with the Grand Cafe tradtion and to match the opulence of the interior, a range of equipment inspired by the era was sourced, some antique and others bespoke."

The Wolseley has started a web store to sell selections of their exceedingly popular table and glassware. The Black & White Cake Stand with Cloche is £165.00.

Cool Hunting

black-fluted.jpgWe have long been fans of Royal Copenhagen. In fact it is possible that in our book, they could do no wrong. So it is with great delight that we found these merchants of reliability had veered off course, after 231 years, into the seductive world of darkness. Enter the Black Fluted Mega.

Prefabulous Little Houses

A simple collection of elegant, prefab houses. Curated by our friend at Wink Ink.

Modern Link

modern-link1.jpgModern Link is one of many great stores filled with the never-ending beauty of modern Scandinavian furniture. What sets it apart is their charming, down-to-earth staff and atmosphere. They don't take a holier-than-thou approach to shilling Danish flea-market wares to us deprived American aesthetes. They are genuinely interested in great design and want to share it with you.
