Mister Moss Homewares

Have you heard? Mister Moss has stemmed into homewares!

From the makers of those amazing hanging plants bundled in bright string comes a new, equally colourful range for your home. The debut range is made up of rugs, planters and stools designed by Jenna Spence, who is the founder and senior designer of Mister Moss. The new homewares range captures that same sense of fun and vibrance that we have come to associate with the company, incorporating plenty of colour, geometric prints and clever design concepts.

My favourite pieces are the stool which can also be turned upside down to create a planter, how clever is that?! It is available in four different patterns in a whole rainbow of colour choices. But the side table and coat stand are my absolute picks of the bunch, more of a minimal, Nordic design style then the rest of the collection they just ooze class and sophistication. LOVE them!

With prices starting at just $32 I suggest you pop on over to the Mister Moss website and get shopping!















My kind of Pot Purri

Here is a recent design that showed at Milan Design Week Salone del Mobile 2014.

POT.PURRI by 3 dots collective is an interesting design collection of modular containers which can be mixed and matched to create over 50 unique objects spanning from vases and vessels through to lamps.

The main segments are made from concrete and wire of various diameters and dimensions, all of which are interchangeable. This allows the customer to create a custom combination of pieces for their project and furthermore, allows them to update their purchase by reconfiguring whenever they please.

I love the pop of colour that the wire elements bring to the collection, they break up the heavy, solid aesthetic of the concrete perfectly and mimic the forms and patterns in basketry, just with a polished, modern edge.









Rather Strapping

I’m a little in love with these Strap Baskets which are a collaboration between American companies byAMT and Mimot Studio.

An elegant, minimal storage solution for your home with a multitude of uses. Beautifully combining leather straps secured by a mixture of copper plated rivets and wire cross stitch. But these baskets aren’t just pretty, they are built for strength and can withstand quite heavy loads from magazines through to firewood!

The Strap Baskets are available in two sizes, small and large, and don’t miss the soon to be released Strap Tote to complete the collection, it’s bound to be amazing too.

Check their website to find your local stockist.

Intelligent Speaker

See this stylish little cone? Well this is one clever little contraption too!

Cone is the first design created by start-up company Aether. Based in San Francisco, Aether is a software and hardware company that decided your speakers should not only look and sound amazing, but needed to be more intelligent too. A software program allows this wireless wi-fi speaker to choose the music you like, learning as it is used to create an archive of what style of music you like to listen to even noting your change in taste depending on your location! If you don’t like a song that cone has selected for you, turn the dial face to select another or press the centre button to request a song. These actions will also help the device narrow down your style consistently improving its selections to suit your taste.

The speaker has access to an impressive range of music, streaming from an online library of 20 million tracks, podcasts and internet radio stations or via access to your personal music collection on your Mac or iPhone using Airplay (An Android system is also in the works.) It is a fully portable design which will provide you with a cracking 8 hours of tunes thanks to a built-in rechargeable lithium battery.

Cone will be available in late 2014 at a retail price of US$399. Initially they will only be available in the black and copper finish, a white and silver edition will follow by the end of the year. Join the reservation list to be first in line!
