These cement planters from Pull + Push have a great modern architectural design to them that is all the more interesting due to the fact that they are each a little less than perfect. I think the are sublime.

One Smart Car


As you may have seen in a previous post here, I'm a Smart Car fan. If your thinking about getting one you better get moving because the waiting lists in the US are growing. The Smart Car web site now has a car delivery date estimator which is accurate within 90 days. That just goes to show you how hard it is to get a good thing nowadays.

Wall Of Water

A friend of mine is designing his new salon and I have offered my services with the interior. We were talking about having a wall of water and I thought of a restaurant I love called Soba in Pittsburgh. They have this wonderful wall of water on slate tiles. The water forms a continuous sheet down the slate that is hard to capture in photos but I find it so beautiful and tranquil in person.

Aqualife Circling Shower

I find many self contained showers to be quite utilitarian looking and lacking in good design. The Aqualife Circling shower is a wonderful exception. It has a minimal modern look while still providing all the bells and whistles such as 10 massage jets, a radio and mp3 player jack. I could get used to facing this every morning.

Modern Fountain

I don't think I've featured a fountain until now, and it's not because I'm anti-fountain. I just think it's very hard to find interesting, well designed fountains. With every home goods store in the US selling low end fountains they all look pretty much the same, cheep. But this is an exception. The Falling Water Fountain is sharp looking and comes in this great blue but can be special ordered in other colors. It has a universal appeal that is modern, Zen, and would even fit in a traditional designed space.
