The Eva Solo Showcase, designed by Claus Jensen and Henrik Holbaek, is a beautiful design which allows you to display precious items in the protection of a glass dome.
I love this concept because it is a piece that can be constantly changed and updated to create a stunning visual display in your home. You can theme the contents to match your decor, to celebrate important events, special holidays or just to house those delicate keepsakes.
Both my children are young and whenever we go for walks together they love to find interesting things that they gift to me. Wouldn’t they get the biggest kick out of seeing these precious treasures displayed with pride in the Eva Solo Showcase. Because sometimes the most precious gifts are those without a price tag!
Australian residents can start their collection by contacting Top3 by Design. (Same day delivery is available for many Sydney Postcodes!)
Being part of a great relationship means you can really relax in your partners company, you are comfortable and the two of you seem to just sync.
So how ideal is this rocking chair design by Mark Krauss? A new take on the love seat, SWAY is essentially a double rocking chair, how fun is that! Enjoy having a D&M in total comfort with your bestie or kick them out and recline solo for maximum enjoyment. I can also picture this chair becoming a firm favourite with the family pet but things could go hay wire if the kids are let loose on it! Roller coaster anyone??
Regardless of your relationship status, I think this chair is total coolness for anyone that buys it.
We live in a very technical age and cables are a by-product of this existence.
With the creation of wi-fi we are slowly freeing ourselves from the tangle of twisted cords, which hide like writhing snakes behind our office desks and home entertainment systems. Some areas we can easily conceal this tech super highway but in others, cables are left exposed for all to see, much to the homeowners despair.
But there is hope. Recently designers have embraced and decided to celebrate the humble electrical cord. Just look at all the bright colour choices on the market today combined with the growing popularity of pendant lights and bare light bulbs. Cables have taken centre stage and are now being worked into interior design as the focal point of the room.
Time to get creative with your cables!

Now let’s step beyond the use of string.
How amazing are these pieces of furniture by Vito Selma? Visually you can see how they draw their inspiration from string art but I love the unexpected material choice. The wood is challenged to bend and twist to mimic the patterns normally formed by a flexible twine. The result is an a captivating piece of furniture that is different from every angle.
My favourite is the first coffee table “Geo”, it has such a great form to it that appears to almost flow beneath the glass tabletop.
G’day Hermit followers!
So I have finally returned from holidays just in time to celebrate Australia Day this week (It would be un-Australian of me to miss it after all!) Expect a week that is bursting with Aussie patriotism and to kick things off, here’s some beauties for the blokes in the house.
1. Victorian Kangaroo Boxer 8″ x 10″ Art Print by Fringe Pop Print Emporium
2. T.e Vin Om Kangaroo Leather Wallet by Temono / Hard to Find
3. Hollow Wooden Surfboards by Peter Walker / Walkersurfboards
4. Everdure eChurrasco gas and charcoal BBQ
5. Lamington 7″ Sleeve by Crumpler
And for the man who has everything… Reindeer Leather Aprons by Boleby.
Truly a collector’s item, only 30 of these were made (and sold!) but you can still purchase the original Tanner’s Apron.
Bole is a very well-respected tannery in Sweden, a small family business that counts royalty as customers. They are 1 of just 4 companies in the world that use traditional methods of tanning with spruce bark, creating high-end products that last a lifetime, age gracefully and smell amazing.
