I think wooden toys are so magical, add in moving parts and a music box and they remind me of something you would expect to find in Santa’s workshop! They can fascinate little kids for hours and are a beautiful heirloom that will stand the test of time.
So today I bring you these beautiful wooden music boxes made by Jean Card in Taiwan. They have a huge range of cute wooden music boxes, check out the videos below to see how they are made and some of the range that are available. The New York, London’s Big Ben and Mountain Railroad Pass music boxes can be purchased through Aussie online store Cool Things for $74.95 each.
Perhaps an idea for the “Mums to Be” this Mothers Day?
Here is a recent design that showed at Milan Design Week Salone del Mobile 2014.
POT.PURRI by 3 dots collective is an interesting design collection of modular containers which can be mixed and matched to create over 50 unique objects spanning from vases and vessels through to lamps.
The main segments are made from concrete and wire of various diameters and dimensions, all of which are interchangeable. This allows the customer to create a custom combination of pieces for their project and furthermore, allows them to update their purchase by reconfiguring whenever they please.
I love the pop of colour that the wire elements bring to the collection, they break up the heavy, solid aesthetic of the concrete perfectly and mimic the forms and patterns in basketry, just with a polished, modern edge.
I’m a little in love with these Strap Baskets which are a collaboration between American companies byAMT and Mimot Studio.
An elegant, minimal storage solution for your home with a multitude of uses. Beautifully combining leather straps secured by a mixture of copper plated rivets and wire cross stitch. But these baskets aren’t just pretty, they are built for strength and can withstand quite heavy loads from magazines through to firewood!
The Strap Baskets are available in two sizes, small and large, and don’t miss the soon to be released Strap Tote to complete the collection, it’s bound to be amazing too.
