Bring the energy and freshness of nature into your home with designer Farrah Sit’s Hanging Planter from LIGHT + LADDER: " We think the home should be like a garden, and we bring Nature inside with a sleek yet practical approach to luxury".

The company hopes to represent a return to meaningful consumption by providing artistic, one-of-a-kind, American-made accessories for the home. Each product is inspired by the vivid simplicity of the natural world.

                       

Curate your own organic installation, grow an herb garden on your kitchen wall or use to store small notions above your desk. Each ceramic container is handmade and a great way to add a little greenery to any room in your home.

Each piece is handmade in Brooklyn. The ceramic planters are offered with ivory leather or brass chain and hangs 10 ½ and 11 ½ inches long.

 

The Spora collection began as a new way to use walls for storage and decoration to free up precious surface space. Combining natural materials and bringing greenery inside, the ceramic and leather wall planters were the answer. Inspired by spores, small reproductive bodies that are both protective and capable of growing into a new organism, the porcelain vessels offer an elegant home for plants on the wall.

The company also offers an array of artistic products for the home: self-watering counter planters, bottle openers, hooks, wall storage, desk accessories, candle lighting and garden tools...

 

Architectural elements are amazing but often invisible. By showing your home's structure and bones you will add character and enhance it's beauty and personality.

             

The structure and guts of a home are usually hidden behind drywall.  But there are some materials that are just better off in the spotlight, to showcase their purpose. Timber beams and trusses are a great example — not only are they strong structural members, but they're also show stopping design elements.

KERF DESIGN  is an award-winning shop based in Seattle, Washington. It is known for it's distinctively fresh, modern style as well as it's high quality and rigorous environmental standards. All of the work they do is custom.  The  aesthetic is derived from an ongoing exploration of construction using two simple materials, plywood and plastic laminate. The design of each custom project comes from a seamless integration of three essential components: the necessary function of the item, the method of its construction, and an unadorned presentation of the materials from which it is made.

I especially love the  new adjustable wall mounted storage system...

 

KERF designs unique solutions that fit nicely with any decor... a cutting-edge loft or office renovation, a beach cottage or mid-century modern remodel.

                      

"My design philosophy comes from the same place that work like that of Charles and Ray Eames and Jean Prouve comes from. Design is an evolution. You study what you like and what works, and then you try to improve it or do it a little differently each time."
