Wonderfully imaginative 3D forms in polyurethane foam, fiberglass resin & polymer clay by Meredith Dittmar.  Her website bio says of her work:-

“Dittmars human-animal-plant-energy amalgams contain threads of common elements and colors to express deep levels of union across themes of biology, technology, and consciousness . Her characters are frequently involved in quiet expressive moments, or lounge facing their audience so they can share their inner space. Dittmar believes it is this space we recognize in ourselves, and through convening in that space, the interconnectedness of all things is revealed. She sees the act of spontaneous artistic creation as part of a larger practice of being present, and a way to better understand herself and reality.”

In a world where original and cool bookends are hard to come by, this is a very clever idea.  Get ’em at Design 3000.

I love this room on so many levels, everything about it – but especially the platform bed base.  Drool…

Excellent idea over at Ikea Hacker for spicing up the Expedit glass topped coffee table – so simple and the possibilities are endless.

Get The Hint label tags from Unica Home.  With lots of  juicy F-words.  I don’t know why I find these so funny…. maybe because I’m picturing myself attaching them to folders at work 😛

Always on the lookout for coathooks and hangers that are a little different – I like these 🙂

Superbly crafted 1:43 scale (and smaller) scenes by Thomas Doyle.  And all with a strange, slightly sinister feel – my favourite 🙂

Felissimo‘s 500 Pencils for Social Designer is a set of… well, 500 coloured pencils.  You can’t buy them in a complete set straight away, you have to subscribe and receive them over 20 months.  Also available are storage and display options that can be mounted on your wall so that your pencils become an art display.

I’ll admit I’m drooling over these…. but at the same time, do I really need 500 coloured pencils? (And do I really need to hang them on my wall….?!)
