valentin löllmann + d*s meeting note

sometimes the combination of beautiful furniture and photography just knocks me over. these pieces from german designer valentin löllmann, created from bits of old “forgotten” furniture, are so lovely i can’t resist them. i love the lighting in the photos- everything is so moody and gorgeous. i’d love to have that sofa on a sunny…

small space solutions

i’m always looking for a great, compact desk, but this one really takes the cake. talk about perfect for small studios, dorm rooms and converted closet desks. they’re certainly not for everyone (especially those who need more writing and storage room), but if you live in a tiny apartment and need something small for short-term…

new at pottery barn

it’s not often that i flip through catalogs in the mail- normally they go straight to the recycling bag where they’ll sit until i take them downstairs on friday evening. there’s something about catalogs that makes my mind go numb so i try to avoid them at all costs. but yesterday after a long day…

flip top birch coffee table

ac and i are on the search for a new coffee table. we’ve been pathetically trying to share a lone benjamin stool from ikea and it just won’t hold both of our legs along with dinner and drinks. so we’re on the hunt for something else. at the top of my list? a beautiful new…
