bedtime. stories.

These awesome Bedtime Stories sheets are a project from Tiago da Fonseca and I went some now please. "Once upon a time there was a blanket. This blanket had several sheets containing a traditional bedtime story. Each 'page' adds a layer of linen making you warmer (or cooler) and comfier hopefully guiding you and your partner into a pleasant night's sleep." When can we buy some??? (via CubeMe)

abyss. lamp.

There is no reason given for why the Abyss Lamp has its unusual name (at least on the site I found it on), but my guess is it's named after creatures you might find in the dark abyss of the sea. What I did find on the site is that the Abyss is "a high voltage LED strip and modular structure encased in injection molded opal polycarbonate segments. These segments allow the abyss lamps the flexibility to be reconfigured and re-shaped into many different forms. The ceiling lamp also has a florescent spot light." The construction gives it an ethereal luminosity that I find mesmerizing. And yes I realize calling a light luminous seems kind of silly, but at the same time the Abyss really is more luminous than other lights. It costs $658 for the table version, $998 for the ceiling lamp.

70. Or. So. Photos. From. ICFF.

I just posted about 70 photos from the International Contemporary Furniture Fair at the Jacob Javits Center in NY. There are 7 posts labeled, cleverly, ICFF Photos, with about 10 photos per post. Hope you enjoy them. The show will be open to the public on Tues, May 22, so if you're in NY and you like furniture, try to check it out (you'll have to buy a ticket though). Highly recommended. I saw a lot of great furniture and design, met a lot of the people who created all of it, and in general had an awesome time. I don't think I'm going to be able to caption all of these photos but if you have questions about anything, leave a comment and I'll get back to you.
