Fun funky household items

Readers of this blog know I have an affinity for almost everything Fred puts out and lucky me (unlucky my wallet) they just added a bunch of awesome new products to their site!

Loose Leaf

“Loose Leaf looks like it wafted out of the sky and flitted to your entryway. But looks can deceive – it’s actually a very reliable and practical doorstop, as functional as it is evocative! Each Loose Leaf is packaged on a durable, peggable chipboard backing card.”

I love this incorporation of an organic shape with a practical house hold item. Besides, who doesnt want to add a little more nature to their house?

M-Cups

“This set of 6 dry-measure cups nests neatly just like traditional Russian matryoshkas. They accurately measure 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4 and 1 full cup, and they’re built from heavy-duty, food-safe, long-life engineering plastics. M-Cups are useful, easy to store, and quite charming…so why not doll up YOUR kitchen with a little Russian folklore?”

Besides the obviousness that these are adorable measuring cups that dont look like measuring cups, what I love is that these are so cute you could keep them out in the open on your counter.

INSET

“These sleek and stylish salad servers are two of a kind – they nestle perfectly together for presentation and storage. They’re crafted from high-quality stainless steel with a fine brushed finish. The creation of renowned German designer Judith Hoefel, InSet is designed to love and built to last.”

Ah you sleek minimalist Germans, of course you would manage to so effortlessly remake salad servers! The best part about this is not only do I want it in my kitchen but I know this is something my mom would love…its both fun, practical and chic.

Now if you will excuse me, Ive got some online shopping to do.

Next best thing to your own sushi boats!

Just the other day I was telling my friends about how much I want my a river with sushi boats in my house. Unfortunately most San Francisco landlords are not so keen on people putting tiny rivers in their apartments so I will have to wait until I get a house of my own. But until then, I can fill my need for mobile sushi with a sushi train!

Shinkansen Bullet Train Sushi Go Round Restaurant

Modeled after the infamous Shinkansen Bullet Train in Japan, this kit allows you to build your own bullet train track and comes with train cars to tote the sushi. If youre having a party you can play conductor and decide when your guests get their meal or you could just sit by yourself and play master of the sushi train (totally what I would do). The train comes with two cars and either plates or bowls and can be operated manually or on auto pilot. It also includes chopsticks and fake sushi so you can do some trial runs before using the real thing.

The set can be shipped from Japan and retails for around $66 dollars (not including shipping).

Dream-Scape Design Spaces

Earlier today my good friend SuperJenn forwarded me the most amazing link to 3 dreamworld design spaces. So take the red pill and follow me down the rabbit hole…

Dream-Scape Design Spaces

Amsterdam design house Tjep. (the period is part of their name) specializes in both product furniture, interior design and everything in between. Their style is a mixture of childlike fantasy and modern minimalism. The above photos are from a Rotterdamn sofa shop called VilaSofa and they wanted to combine the warehouse look with a mixture of fanciful comfort classic designs. I love that it feels warm and inviting due to the childlike elements of the slide and picnic table all while looking very adult and chic.

This next design was done for a restaurant and yet again its focus was to create an environment that would be welcoming to both adults and children.

The trick was to make stylish furniture for the adults that the children can play with, for example bus tables, tunnel benches, play tables and movie houses. Don’t miss the play area to the left in the picture above.

Pop colors in a playful space! What more could you ask for?! The restaurant is called Praq located in Amersfoot. As a color geek I just have to say I love the use of orange and pink, it can be an overwhelming combo but when done correctly as it is here, it is chic and design forward.

Next up is a school…a school! I want to go to this school! Its a ROC professional training school in Apeldoorn and if I went to this school I would never ditch class…ok maybe I would but just to hang out in these awesome areas.

This is a conference room for the Economics department and the look is so industrial and yet airy that it creates such an intriguing atmosphere. For such a playful space it still feels charged with energy, power and creativity.

This is what I think everyone would agree is the most amazing space of all…ok maybe its not the most intriguing design but surely we would all love this in our home. A foosball table with bleachers for fans to cheer their favorite team on. Simple and fun, whats not to love?
