A Little More Kitchen Inspiration from Stockholm

From the home of art director Pelle Lundquist, this Swedish kitchen has all the hallmarks of a composed, but fully functional workspace.   A backdrop of white tile and black grout highlights the tasteful shade of pewter on the cabinets, mediated by the organic tones of Carrera marble countertops. This monochromatic pallet lends a bit of warmth to a design landscape sometimes dominated by expanses of white. For more, visit Emma's.

Jasper Morrison for Maruni

Maruni's recent release of Jasper Morrison's Botan bench in Milan compelled our friends at designboom to take a look at his past work for the Japanese brand. True to form, the Lightwood series exemplifies the distillation of form that Morrison is famous for. The Botan bench was in fact designed for Morrison's own office and was adopted into Maruni's lineup thereafter. We can't wait to see what's coming next.

Listen to the man himself discuss Lightwood and Botan at designboom. Also be sure to visit Maruni's full collection here.

Harry Allen for MatterMade

With ICFF coming up, we have furniture on the mind. So when we found ourselves perusing the website of New York design store Matter, we were excited to come across this piece from designer Harry Allen. Appropriately titled Shed, the armoire "conceptualizes the traditional American vernacular and brings the storage shed indoors, creating a beautiful and functional addition to any home." While it's a little out of our reach at $20,000, we definitely see a future in bringing exterior textures indoors. For more, visit Matter online, or in person at 405 Broome Street

Shape Appeal from Suki Vento

Spotted on Remodelista, we're more than a little inspired by designer Suki Vento's remodel of her family's Helsinki home. Loads of clean, simple textures and a double-portion of white make this space a clean by cozy abode. For more, visit Varpunen.

Erik Levy for Emu

With summer on the horizon, we have outdoor furniture on the mind. And we wouldn't be disappointed to find this series from Paris-based Arik Levy on our patio (or in our living room for that mater). Released at last month's Salone Internationale del Mobile, the series, designed for outdoor furniture icon Emu, consists of two stackable chairs, ottoman, side table, and dining table. We can appreciate the thoughtful proportions and tasteful color themes, sometimes lacking in outdoor decor. For more, visit Emu and Erik Levy. Via Dezeen.

Le Corbusier Greeting Cards from Stefi Orazi

It's admittedly a little off-topic for us, but we couldn't help but share our love for this series of illustrated greeting cards from Stefi Orazi. Currently part of a give-away by our friends over at Dezeen, each card features a colorful graphic of one of six different buildings by Le Corbusier. The perfect pick-me-up for the architect in your life! Available for purchase at Orazi's online store.

Emma Persson Lagerberg

We're excited to have  just came across this spacious Danish apartment, renovated by interior stylist Emma Persson Lagerberg. We love the weathered charm of the antique pieces paired with the quintessentially Danish minimalism (Ahem...the Persian carpet in the bathroom). Clever task lighting and a seamless Carrera marble counter and backsplash make for an endearingly sparse kitchen. Also, it's for sale. For more, visit Emma Persson Lagerberg. Spotted on Emma's.
