Toto, I Don’t Think We’re In Pottery Barn Anymore

Well peeps – in the spirit of adventure, I’d like to take you outside the bounds of what you might normally feast upon in the furniture stores and catalogers that you most likely frequent. As a designer, I get to attend trade shows, presentations, continuing ed classes – not to mention receive a slew of industry journals. It’s great fun, the things that I get to see! And with some of these latest images – I just had to share. For example – notice the Tulip Sink pictured here. Imagine spitting your nightly toothpaste into this. I don’t know about you, but my money is on “hitting the wall” or . . . your shoe. But you have to admit – it is interesting!

Take a look at some of these other wild, interesting and even beautiful concepts that found their way to me, by way of various trade publications recently. And before you judge (for example – “Wow, I hate that!”) – At least consider first – and take note of – the immense creativity behind each concept. Then…judge. Have at it! (For example . . . “I really hate that”…”) But more than anything else – have some fun, just like I did when I saw these creations from various designers around the globe. Enjoy!

Pictured here – a design student’s final project in the Netherlands . . . that’s a book shelf, made of letters. See close up detail below.
