Lene Bjerre Design, Denmark

UPDATE (10 Feb, 2007): Lene Bjere's Spring 2007 Collection is up online!

I've been gasping and drooling over Lene Bjerre's collection for the longest time. From tabletop, living, bed & bath, to lighting, I adore them ALL. Lene Bjerre Design will be at these February events to show their 2007 collection. I just can't wait to see their 2007 collection up on their site. Click here for their last autumn collection. Enjoy!

modern-twist: sales rep wanted

I guess most of you already knew about modern-twist's great collection, since it's been posted around the blogland lately. I was first introduced to modern-twist by Grace a week ago, and Kat Nouri of modern-twist recently told me that she's looking for a rep in Singapore and Japan. So for those of you who are interested, please contact modern-twist here, or if you're happened to be in NY Gift fair (28 Jan-1 Feb), Kat will be at the hand-made division 5532. Good luck!


I'm loving these fun doormats from Rove.de, an online design shop based in Germany. They have over 60 doormats with pretty patterns and quirky hotel/wine labels to choose from. The "Never Mind doormat" is my top pick! ;-)

Thanks, Stefan!

camilla halvorsen, norway

camilla halvorsen is a designer and sculptor from Oslo, Norway, who likes to work with interesting materials. Above are her acrylic products. I love her green candlebranch!

To view her beautiful figurines, visit her gallery here. Enjoy!


I got tagged by these lovely ladies, Pan-Dan and ohmyGooshness. So here are 6 weird things about myself:

1. I have a love-hate relationship with yellow. I'm not sure why.

2. I can't survive reading a single novel. I'm a picture-book person.

3. I will never, ever, EVER, put myself on a free fall ride! So NO slingshot, NO bungee-jumping for me. NOT EVER!

4. I can't ride a bike. I have problem in balancing, so I'd look funny if I tried to cycle. Seriously.

5. No diving for me, snorkling only please. I'm terrified of deep sea.

6. I MUST drink one cup of coffee OR green tea everyday.

Do I sound weird enough? heh. :)

I tagged K style, Crust Station, indigo, Lola, Sabine, and Silk Felt Soil. But of course, no pressure to play along. ;-)

Moooi Carpets at POAA

Michael of POAA informed me about their "Swing with the plants", designed by Marcel Wanders for Droog Design. Then I found out that POAA has more of Wanders' on their online shop. I'm loving their Moooi Carpets by Marcel Wanders. As POAA described, reasonably priced and very beautiful! Right on.

This Moooi Carpets Nr. 1 is my top pick. Can you guess why? ;-)

Thanks, Michael.

GaGatree, Singapore

I first learnt about GaGatree when I saw its christmas card collection at one of my stockists, EGG3. I bought the green one, btw. But that's not the only thing GaGatree produces. They have this and this, too. And look, Tony of GaGatree emailed me their latest creation, Lazy Milk Pouch. Click here to find out where to buy GaGatree products.

Thanks, Tony.

Great reads

I can't seem to find the time to blog lately, due to some recent urgencies. But I did manage to read some great posts around the blogland in between. :) Let me share few of them with you.

New from WallDesign

I got an email from Fabienne of WallDesign during the holiday, informing me about their english version site is now up and running, and to introduce their latest collection, "Couture de Mur", created by Marie Compagnon. While I was on their site, I visited their E-boutique, and it's just FUNtastic!! It allows potential buyers to design their wall even before they purchase the wall stickers. You can choose the furniture, the design, and you can even rotate the design to your desired position. Look what I came up with. :)

Thanks, Fabienne!
