hemmendorf floor design

by Grace Bonney

one of the trends i’m really enjoying right now is hand-drawn illustrations and prints working their way into homes. i love the allan the galant paper that launched recently, and now i’m really intrigued by this hand-drawn kitchen floor created by artist/creative director olle hemmendorff in sweden. the best designs often come from someone who can’t find what they need decides to create something that suites their taste- and this is a perfect example. this piece is custom to olle’s own kitchen so sadly it’s not something available in the market, but i’d love to see brands like flor and maybe even imaginetile offer carpeting and tiles that have a hand-drawn pattern to them. they certainly wouldn’t be for everyone but then again, not everyone wants to look down and see woodgrain or an ordinary tile. click here for more on olle’s floor. [thanks, benny!]
