ok. so the grumpy pants are off & it's time to finish my favourites from design made trade. just quickly you know. i mentioned that i loved the bright stools from darcy clarke in my previous dmt post.. they are made from recyclable coloured plastic, based on one of his beautiful, real timber stools (top right). i also loved the prints, both fabric & wallpaper, from cloth. i absolutely love the 'looking for water' & 'spotcheck' pattern & am very tempted to order some samples & see if the colourways work in my place. so last but not least, the friendliest award goes to the talented dani m, who noticed both kingsley & i wearing her earrings & stopped to have a good old chat to us. dani was wearing one of her designs (same as the necklace above) & while i'm not normally a gold girl, it looked awesome on. i liked. i liked a lot. the matt & the shiny finishes work beautifully together.
