Turn the Season Rug

From design company YLdesign in Holland comes this beautifully aesthetic double sided rug showing the changes between seasons. For indoor or outdoor use. The rug connects to our minds and brings memories of summer in the park, or autumn leaves on the ground.

Mobile Tree Bench

Spatial designer Rogier Martens has designed this clever piece of urban furniture called Tree Bench. It is temporary seating for public parks. Like a true spatial designer should be, he looked at the real surroundings of the area and found the elements the parks naturally have to offer: tree, grass, paths. “┬áIt is no challenge to just dig a hole and install a bench. An ideal bench needs the environment and the environment needs the bench too. ” It shows that you don’t need to destroy the environment to create a useful object.

Interiors UK Show – Day 1

I went for a prelim scout today around a few of the halls at the NEC Show. LOVING what I saw!

A little advice for any designer wanting to take a look for ideas: When signing up do not put designer on your badge! The amount of stall holders who gave me a dirty look like I was going to steal their ideas! Better to say your from an interiors shop that supplies furniture etc, they think they might be able to make some money out of you so will be more co-operative!

Unfortunately all the halls have a no photography rule, but you may ask stall holders if you may take them.

Mainly looked at the lighting area today, some really beautiful designs being showcased. Have to say that massive chandeliers with thousands of small crystals seem to be ‘in’ at the moment. Some gorgeous ideas from about 100 stands – here’s the pick of the best (in my opinion)

Colours within a clear shell – Colors by Copenhagen

Rustic Candle Lanterns from Hill Interiors

Lighting inspired by a swan – Illuminati

Block colours from Endon

Thousands of crystals by First Class Lighting

Cage Pendant from Mullan Lighting

Double shades by Paulo Coelho

Medieval style lighting from Tuscanor Lighting

And many many more! Take a look at the Interiors UK 2012 Website to view more companies to have exhibited!
