Last week, I ordered Chinese take-out to get a fortune that well…absolutely made NO sense. I don’t know about you, but I still look forward to seeing my fortune at the end of my meal. I’ve been seeing these porcelain Fortune Cookies by Alesksandra Pollner & OJBECT and aside from them being beautifully understated and simply elegant, I found out that each fortune was actually written by a psychic in the Seattle area!

If some of your are like me, you’re thinking, “when was the last time I got out of the country for a nice long holiday?!?!” I thought, I’d help plant the seeds of your next amazing getaway by posting these beautiful “Boucherouite” Moroccan hand-woven rugs. Made by tribal Berber women out of scraps and recycled fabric, these free-form rugs energize and inspire your home space. Mmmm…sounds amazing right? (via Beldi)
Gestalten has released Forever: The New Tattoo showcasing all the top and up and coming tattoo artists in the industry. This book takes an in-depth look at the tattoo culture and how it has become and “innovative, diverse, inspiring, and controversial as the motifs it creates.” Sounds irresistible doesn’t it?
Putting things into storage can be overwhelming, but for many of us, its much needed! House Industries has come out with House Archive Boxes–a collection of affordable and durable storage boxes that are designed so well that if you don’t get to the storage unit, you can afford to keep them laying around in your home or office space without crimping your style. Nice!
After having spent an entire weekend telling my father to avoid McDonald’s at all cost, I find this group exhibition at the David B. Smith Gallery featuring beautiful cutout paper trees from McDonald’s carryout bags by Yuken Teruya. The lesson? Things are never what they seem and believe it or not…there are even times where Dad does know best! 😉 (Thanks Appa!)
I love print and all things about print. But recently, I’ve started to venture into the digital publishing world and have found only a few apps and digital magazines that are impressive. When I saw the trailer for the new iPad app for The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore created by Moonbot Studios, all I could say was, “oh…sh**, this is amazing.” These guys really took it to another level and without the fuss, its smart, intuitive and interactive in all the best ways.
