Neverending Glory Collection

Lasvit-1-Design Crush

 

A show-stopping line of handblown glass pendants make up Lasvit’s Neverending Glory Collection. You might recognize the silhouettes of iconic chandeliers from five of the world’s most eminent concert halls and theaters – La Scala in Milan, Palais Garnier in Paris, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, and the Czech Republic’s Estates Theater in Prague.

Howkapow Spring Collection

Bristol, England-based Howkapow brings a smile to my face every time I visit them online. Their shop is full of innovative, fun, interesting work from breakthrough talent as well as a few carefully-chosen independent, family-run brands. There’s an ever-changing collection of unusual pieces at affordable prices, and their spring collection was just recently released so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you.

We Make Stuff

We Make Stuff-1-Design Crush

 

In the blogging world few things make me smile ear to ear like a “coworker” taking their love of making to a new level. We Make Stuff is the new venture of Funkytime founder Sibylle and her equally creative brother. The Berlin-based business creates high-quality handcrafted one of a kind pieces for urban interiors with wood, concrete, steel, and textiles as their signature trademark. Can’t wait to see what’s in store from this awesome new line!

Plumen 002

Plumen 002-1-Design Crush

 

Plumen recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for its second designer low-energy lightbulb, and holy crap the campaign is already fully funded! It’s really easy to see why, just look at Plumen 002. Art and ambience all in a lightbulb of all things. They’ll be available for purchase come September 1st and LED products are coming down the pipeline.

Starry Light

Starry Light-1-Design Crush

 

I’m digging not only the Starry Light, but also its clever tongue-in-cheek name! The constellations of the Northern Hemisphere are projected onto your walls and ceiling when lit. Starry Light all began as a piece of art and after a year in development went into product mode, it’s now available in several colors and manufactured by hand.
