Supermarket find: Tetrad flat shelving

The ultimate 80s video game (remember those old game cartridges?). The Tetrad Shelving units by Brave Space at Supermarket, uses the Tetris-inspired shapes to create modular shelving for your home or office. Love the colours and shapes of this unit. It will almost be a shame to fill it with books!

Kartell Componibili round storage

Growing up in Cape Town in the eighties, my parents had these Kartell Componibili round storage units in our living room. My younger sister and I used to play with our Barbie dolls in them and we created houses for our dolls inside with mini furniture. Everytime I see these in a hip furniture store, I only have fond memories of my childhood.

Folksy Sampler, Christmas 2009

I got a really nice surprise when I returned from my holiday. My Eero Aarnio Ponies tea towel design was featured on the middle page of the Folksy Sampler for Christmas 2009 and a copy of the newspaper was on my doorstep when I arrived. The layout of the newspaper is below. My design on the inside page can be used as wrapping paper for Christmas pressies. Really cute! Head over to Folksy for some designer goodies.

These decorative wallstickers made me smile today. Ferm Living's clever use of this product caught my eye and I absolutely love old, tiny cars.

Colour of the day - canary yellow
