Surface Design + Inspiration Interiors | Pillow Talk It seems like these days the throw pillow craze has reached new heights. No longer are we looking for our couch decorations just to blend in and stay still, we have begun to ask our couch art to positively pulse with creativity. And that’s where artists like Tyler Spangler step in. His collection of vibrant and color flooded art prints are available as throw pillows on Society 6, in case your couch is looking a bit plain. – Julie Rose BEST OF MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2016 This in fact leads us to making mention of the pastel toned colour way which kept appearing all about town: all the way from HAY’s multicoloured presentation inside La Pelota - which inspired thoughts of 1950’s-era candy shops - to Patricia Urquiola’s console and mirror from the SHIMMER series she created for Glas Italia. Unsurprisingly, Patricia was a very busy designer this season - to prove our point we must note the incredible CREDENZA collection that she collaborated on with Federico Pepe on for Spazio Pontaccio which was inspired by the stained glass windows of holy sites. Marble seemed to be another trend at this Salone, especially black Marquina marble which appeared in everything from Apparatus Studio’s Portal marble dining table, to the small, Niobe side tables designed by Federica Capitani for Zanotta, not to mention the Mr. Marble jar which was designed by Lorenza Bozzoli exclusively for the 10 by Yatzer collection.

Sheehan spoke to us about how and why families are changing and how marketers can respond. “You have all types of new and not-so-new family formations becoming more common,” she told us, but also noted, “It isn’t that family is less important or that the notion of family is going away. In fact, it’s stronger than it has ever been.” From our research, it looks like the shape and definition of family is changing rapidly. Would you agree?
CxC - Childfree by Choice — Faith Popcorn's BrainReserve Redefining Tomorrow’s Family The nuclear family is detonating “As American as Mom and apple pie,” the saying used to go. But now, a societal tsunami is underway, changing the way we see motherhood and questioning its primacy in the fabric of our culture. The U.S. birthrate has plunged to unprecedented lows: In the 1970s, 1 in 10 American women were childless. Today, the number is 1 in 5.
London Cloth Company Revives The Lost Craft Of Loom Weaving – iGNANT.de From the rescue of a rusting loom in a Welsh barn to 41 tons of machinery weaving endless yards of fabric for export around the globe, the story of the London Cloth Company is a captivating tribute to the hard work, vision and determination of the gregarious Daniel Harris. Accompanied by his cat, Flo Rida, in his workshop – located in an old air force hangar on an industrial estate in Epping, London – Harris spent a chilly but sun-dappled morning introducing us to his world of weaving with the industrial machinery he single-handedly rescued and restored. The London Cloth Co is the city’s first micro-mill. How did it all begin? “I started off with one loom, and now I’ve got 41 tonnes or machinery, at least. This isn’t even all of it.”I started off with one loom, and now I’ve got 41 tonnes or machinery, at least.
