Belgian designer Maarten de Ceulaer has joined forced with Fendi on a collection of furniture speaking to the Italian brand’s iconic striped motif. The result were a number of furnishings with multi-colored leather planks, wrapped around objects such as benches and tree stumps. The decoration items were exhibited during Design Miami.

Fendi creative director for accessories Silvia Fendi explains:

“These are definitely more functional works than former collaborations. We were lying on his floor bed thinking about how to develop a bag that transforms into seating.”

12-Foot-Wide Brooklyn Brownstone

BrownstoneBackyardView 359x540 12 Foot Wide Brooklyn Brownstone

When I first moved to NYC and was squished in with multiple roommates, I actually had repeated dreams about finding hidden doors leading to big empty rooms. Something tells me this is not a unique city dream theme. And since we showed the very posh Brooklyn homes being sold by Jenna Lyons and Agyness Deyn, it stands to reason some of our readers might have fun checking out this more size-challenged 12-foot wide Brooklyn brownstone. More in keeping with the average person’s reality but still manages to be just as dreamy as the celebs’ spots.

According to architect Tim Rasic who purchased it in 2005

“It was a full-on interior and exterior renovation. “There had been only two owners before us, each of whom had the house for about fifty years. And they hadn’t done any work in the last fifty.”

Brownstoner has more details on design choices, like choosing not to put cabinets on the walls in the kitchen to make the room seem wider. Interesting how seemingly every choice made is so influenced by the desire to make the space seem larger. Wonder if sometimes they didn’t want to rebel and do something big.

Tim Delger ‘Road Sign’ Furniture

f4 Tim Delger Road Sign Furniture

There is a kitschy side to using public signs  for anything else but their purpose that takes me back to the late 80’s for example ,  when  there was sense of rebellion in pop culture. ‘No Entry’ signs were made for the  always angry teen’s rooms( mine was by Garfield puchased at a Hallmark) ,  Fresh Prince sang ‘Paren’t just don’t  understand’  and the funny thing is that nowadays parents seem to understand   so well or teens are  so over them , that youth rebellion has almost vanished from pop culture.  I do not know how the cool Tim Delger pieces made me attempt a discourse on  youth culture? The furniture just speaks to me I guess. More on the next page.

BILLYKIRK Overnight travel bag

166A FRONT1 BILLYKIRK Overnight travel bag

My parents always believed that one should dress up when travelling.To them it’s a form of respect for the country you are entering and really just  about a certain etiquette.The concept of course stayed with me to the point where I could never wear sweats on a plane .As a result, I am always seeking sleek luggage options that don’t look like gym bags, don’t scream "I belong to a girl", can whithstand ,the elements,and can work with any outfit.

I came across the Overnight bag by BillyKirk and I was like yes! Sleek vintage looking, with metal studs at the bottom something that really matters for the durability of a bag.No zippers to fiddle with.And the color palette is mostly dark which I also love.More Views on the next page
