Weekend Show and Tell

29 Jan

Another set of lovelies for you lovelies. Enjoy!

A modern twist on the bean bag (via Pursuitist), the Slumber Pouf from Casalis Carpets. With a pattern much like a knitted fisherman’s sweater, these poufs were designed by textile artist Aleksandra Gaca and come in 12 different shades. The only thing I can’t seem to find out is how much they are and where the heck to buy them! Can you?

Courtesy of Mid Century Home, this wonderful tour of a house designed by Arthur Witthoefft in 1957 that the owners have renovated back to its original state. First of all, holy fireplace, Batman! And (this will cause my husband to roll his eyes and tell me to just go ahead and finally move to Palm Springs) secondly, I love those kind of floors but I have no idea what they are. Do you? (Maybe I should call this post ‘Help Me!’?) Check out the original Architectural Pottery planter too!

Valentine’s day is slightly more than two weeks away. What are you getting your sweetie? If we had any red in our house, I know what I’d want: this Case Study fiberglass shell chair in a special Valentine edition color ‘Love U Red’ from Modernica.

A slightly smaller but just as charming Valentine’s gift that I ‘dig’ is this keychain from the riskybeads shop on Etsy.

Finally, as I leave today for London, I am thinking of travel alarm clocks. (God bless Remodelista for an entire post on stylish ones!)  I love this one, the Kikkerland Classic Travel Alarm Clock.  And for about $10, it’s practically free!

    Those poufs are really cute. They look like little cats. If I had to guess, I’d say the flooring is marble, but I’m not sure enough to bet my next paycheck on it.

      I don’t think it’s marble. I’ve seen it before. We have it in our office building. It has little pieces of stone and maybe marble in it, but I’m not sure what surrounds it.

        The floors look like white terrazzo to me. Very $$ Even if you go with the cheaper route and do the terrazzo tile.

        YES! It is terrazzo. Thank you thank you thank you! I will look into the prices and come back with some info when we start on the floors!

    […] gotten some pretty great feedback about the pouf in yesterday’s Weekend Show and Tell. I couldn’t find the price, so you know what that means? I most likely can’t afford […]
