design / home goods

though holiday season is officially over, the winter has just begun — at least in philadelphia. with the window closed while cooking during winter (freezing) time, scented candles will definitely be the saver to keep your house smell fresh and clean. BUT for some reasons i’ve never liked these strangely fruity/artificially sweeten scented candles (or air fresher)… not to mention they cause me headache. i like real candles (soy-wax, bee-wax, cotton wicks) with nice candle jar […]

[all images courtesy another country] we’re not surprised this refreshing new addition to the modern furniture world, UK-brand another country, is founded by former wallpaper magazine’s publisher paul de zwart. a furniture line inspired by british country kitchen style, shaker, traditional scandinavian and japanese woodwork, you know that means, good quality guaranteed. all the design are concerned with efficiency: limited waste of material, easy to transport, and versatile (one design, many ways to use).

vintage modern

[all images courtesy jamesplumb] antique, vintage, cast-offs, luggage… who brought these key words all together? jamesplumb. founded by james russell and hannah plumb (recent INSIDE festival 2011 “retail” category winner ), two artists under one name, jamesplumb always leave us a hint of history but with new stories to tell in their projects.  i don’t know if it’s appropriate to say “they gave old objects new life” because that seems over simplified their design sensibility… well, as it said […]
