A bunch of things modern

A bunch of things modern...

Today I am writting about the pantome color of the year 2014 Dazzling Blue, a few modern items, and Finland design week. Hope all of you enjoy the pics and post....

Behold, Pantone's Color Of Spring 2014…

Who could forget Tangerine Tango or Honeysuckle? Emerald or Mimosa? Pantone's color of spring 2014 was just announced…and chances are you already own it. Introducing, Dazzling Blue, a peppy shade of cobalt that Pantone's executive director noted was a practical shade women were already likely to own (if you recognize it, Pantone states that it's also the color of Facebook and Citibank's bike-sharing program). Funnily, it's a shade less dazzling than Yves' Klein Blue, which was the hot hue in fall '11. A touch less blinding, we can definitely see this shade covering everything from structured totes to oversized topcoats to patent sandals that'd be just the ticket to elevating our spring outfit game (are you listening, designers?). And with Fashion Week just a day away, we'd be interested to see if Pantone's projections are correct.

The rest of the shades are in the same vein of slightly muted "brights" (we know this sounds like an oxymoron — but see them for yourself for evidence). With a witch's brew of Violet Tulip, Sand, Freesia, Hemlock, Cayenne, and more rounding out the top 10, the 2014 Pantone predictions present a calmer, more soothing palette for next year. See below to read up on the shades! (Racked

Resin Table, Accessories Included

The London Design Festival, which concluded yesterday, witnessed the debut of a wide range of innovative products, including this resin and wood table by Dutch designer Roel Huisman, which comes equipped with its own table lamp, storage compartment, and glass vase. Writing Table is comprised of a slab of pale green polyester resin, “cast, milled, sanded and polished” to desired effect, and supported by slender ash wood legs, the same material used to craft the attached lamp and sliding storage compartment lid. Huisman calls the table an “object you will enjoy for it’s humble aesthetics and elegant functionality,” and who are we to disagree?


Finlands design week

Finland's Design WeekOur coverage of Helsinki Design Week continues with vignettes from Habitare, the week’s primary exhibition space for furniture, lighting and home products by Finnish manufacturers and designers. We also made an illuminating detour to the glass factor, iittala, which has been in operation for over 100 years. More about that later, but for now, a few more photos to (hopefully) whet your Nordic appetite.
