The Bankers Lamp – Revisited is probably what all bankers lamps dream of becoming one day. A creation of Cory Barkman (previously), the lamp follows the style of the artist, that is, an old world look that is somewhat steampunk-ish, but mostly elegant, stylish, and functional.
L’afrique carpet has a rich design that takes inspiration from the rich African iconography. Following the usual interpretation of Africa, the carpet presents a view of rich forests, intermingled with, and often camouflaging symbols from African iconography. Fit to brighten up an area with colors, the carpet is the work of Studio Job. The circular carpet has a width (diameter) of 350 cm (137.8 inches), and weighs upward of 60 lbs. Available at Moooi.
People have had their fair share of gripe about the obvious lack of details in the good old 8-bit video games. Technology wasn’t mature enough for detailed appearances, and videogame artists and developers made best use of the palette available to them. With better technology, came around a different, more detailed look of the characters. But imagine if the original 8-bit art was just a boxy representation of what those characters actually looked like.
‘Rob the Original’ is an artist with the scissor, and your hair, and your head. Not everyone can sport a portrait on their head, but if you can, Rob is the guy for you. While you get your haircut, Rob will craft a very detailed portrait on your head, with your very own hair. If you would like something more colorful, like patterns, that’s also a yes.
A box full of money burns to give light and warmth to the table. That is a very interesting concept, if you imagine the sheer amount of money that would take to keep the flames fed. Too much? is a dining table that shows modern design, and a flame at the center. The flame in question is fed by a box that sits beneath the flame, full of currency notes.
Classic cars come from an age where cars were a thing of beauty. Designers focused on aesthetics to churn out cars each of which could be a piece of art. That age has gone, and while several of those classic cars may no longer be practical for the road, but their aesthetics still stand. Dave Gartland of Ali Kat is harnessing the beauty of classics from the ‘50s to make gorgeous, one of a kind custom guitars.
Totoro design bed makes for a nice and cute double bed-style sleeping area. Of course, the Totoro shape is quite an incentive to get a hold of this one. The cushioned bed is aimed for kids, but can as easily accommodate two adults. The bed weighs 33 pounds and measures 2.3m x 1.75m. Costs $388.
Feeling low? Light one of these candles, curl up in a corner, and cry your eyes out. The Flicking Candle Company is offering a collection of smells that would remind people of some of the most heart-breaking incidents in life. The flavors on the candle include a relatively benign “defriend” and climb all the way up to the soul sucking friendzone, Grandma’s last Christmas tree, college rejection letter, and freshly signed divorce papers.
Dogs do often look like their owners, or at least have a touch of the human in them. It’s difficult to say the same about cats, them preferring to stay aloof and with little to go by way of comparison. All that’s missing is perhaps a good look at the cats, and the magic touch of image manipulation.
