Reading Space Design - Kosha by Claudio D'amore

With this chair, design and wellbeing are strongly connected. Essentially, Kosha is not jus a chair, but a space. More specifically, a reading space. Its precise ergonomic design allows for a seated retreat among your favorite literature. - Arren Williams Design Lab. The Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs was jam packed during the recent Coachella fest (click here to see the arty goings on over on Poppytalk), but I'm wondering, did anyone stop to check out the hotel's cool macramé installation?

The knot-tastic curtain was created by designer Michael Schmidt - who's perhaps better known for his wardrobe work with the likes of Gaga, Fergie and Madonna - out of about a mile of cotton rope. And why not? It's definitely high time for macramé to come out of the dusty 70's craft closet and be re-imagined for today. A Place for Pallets.. I have a pile of pallets my husband brought home from the transfer station.

A Place for Pallets..

I keep changing my mind on what to do with them. These are just a few of the ideas that I have come across. Another idea is to use the wood as flooring which I am going to try in a small hallway. If you like the rustic look, this wood is right up your alley. Now to decide...... Fan Chair Natural.

In 2010 I could not get enough of vertical wall gardens, but already in this brand new year I'm feeling a kind of aesthetic shift towards something a little less structured and more exotic.

Favorite Modern Hanging Gardens for the New Year Garden Party

Hanging gardens untethered to walls, with their artful trailing shapes and allusions to Babylon, might be just the thing. Hanging plants may make you think of cheesy seventies-era macramé or precious moss-covered cottage garden planters (both of which, I might argue, possess their own charms), but in fact there are lots of interesting modern options for creating hanging gardens, ranging from sleek planters to the (less practical) artfully balled-up clods of dirt and roots. String Gardens (pictured above), created by Amsterdam Redlight Design, are stunning little plots of planted earth that look as if they've been yanked right up out of the ground, defying gravity and exposing their lovely roots. Israeli Designer Talia Mukmel Makes Ephemeral Objects from Earth, Flour, Sand and String. Inspired by the crafts and basic materials used by African tribes, Israeli designer Talia Mukmel created a series of the funky, bumpy containers seen above.

Israeli Designer Talia Mukmel Makes Ephemeral Objects from Earth, Flour, Sand and String

Made using knotting techniques like macramé and materials like earth, flour, sand and water, the decorative objects actually look more like bread or mozzarella than home decor. Quirky, biodegradable and ephemeral, Mukmel’s innovative “terra-cotta” containers mix old traditions, easily available materials and experimental new techniques. To make these fantastic objects, the young designer first crafted macramé containers using a heat-proof tough string. Then she mixed and rolled the sand, water and earth with flour, which helps bind everything together, and wrapped the string basket with the dough.

Lastly, she baked her creations in the oven for a few minutes. Enlarged Product Photo.

I'm seeing more and more knitting, crochet, and macramé utilized in home-decor products lately.

Modern Needlecraft

But these aren't your grandmother's tissue cosies -- while still undoubtedly feminine and ornamental, the traditional needlecraft techniques are more likely to be applied in graphic ways to utilitarian materials and furnishings, giving the finished product a sense of freshness and humor that their matronly predecessors lacked. In addition to the macraméd chairs, knitted pillows, and crocheted light fixtures, hanging pendants, and pottery (top) that I've recently blogged here, several more industrial-meets-handicraft furnishings have caught my attention in recent weeks:

The Nouveau Art Revival: 1900 - 1933 - 1966 - 1974 Philippe Thiébaut + Marie Dussaussoy, March 5, 2012 Forgotten, discredited even, for many decades, Art Nouveau was rehabilitated in the 1960s in a way that affected the history of art and the art market as much as contemporary creative work (design and graphics).

There were many reasons for this revival: tributes paid by the Surrealists in the 1930s, the Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition organised by the MoMA in 1940, major exhibitions put on in New York (Art Nouveau.
