Blond Amsterdam

I was in Amsterdam recently and came across this wonderful brand called Blond Amsterdam. The pottery is humorous, hand sketched and colorful. Simply Love it!

A brief history : Femque and Janneke, two friends from Amsterdam created their bespoke pottery and paintings thirteen years ago. Their individual styles have developed and grown into their signature Blond-Amsterdam style. The two friends have great fun working together and traded-in their little studio for a flagship store with studio annex in the capitals Gerard Doustraat. Femque and Janneke have developed a vast collection of individually designed items.

Salone Internazionale del mobile 2014 - DEDON - Post 4

For its stand at the 2014 Salone del Mobile, DEDON transformed their stall into a white jungle. Based on a concept by designer Daniel Pouzet and drawings by his wife, Marilena Oprean, the booth combines the drama of the tropical wilds with the restraint of a white cube gallery, providing the perfect backdrop for iconic new works by Stephen Burks and Pouzet himself.
One of the first things visitors to DEDON’s White Jungle experienced had been the Floating Outdoor Living Room by Daniel Pouzet. An extension of the French-Romanian designer’s highly successful SWINGREST collection, this unique hanging lounge system, the first of its kind, consists of the SwingMe single-seater, the SwingUs loveseat and more.

Beautiful Packaging-Tokyo Milk

Recently while in one of the shops I noticed a beautiful package for a hand cream--it was none other than Tokyomilk.

Clean legible fonts on a black textile bag and paper cover with an ornate baroque border around the number. Colors : Black and White
It is the perfect package. It appeals. Its feels out-of-the-ordinary which they express quite explicitly when they ask you to enroll for their newsletter online -- ''sign up for the royal court'' ;)
