We always love starting our week with some fresh eye candy and who better to help us with that than Vonnegut Kraft. Brooklyn-based duo, Katrina Vonnegut and Brian Kraft strike the perfect balance between contemporary technological manufacturing and a tradition of hand-made craftsmanship with their range of furniture and lighting.
How gorgeous is the colour combination of the crescent lounge? Lying on it would definitely chase our Monday blues away. Happy Monday everyone!

" To house and to hold" - Studio Klaer founded just 2 years ago by Jesse Van Durme designs and produces home accessories. The label's clean design and honest use of materials is what drew us to it. With all her designs made right at home in Belgium, Jesse is able to ensure the quality and durability of all the pieces in her collection. We're definitely looking forward to more of her designs but for now, the beautifully intricate Bind chair is stuck in our minds.

After being in the same place for awhile, you tend to feel like you've heard and seen everything worth seeing so when Melissa from Wallfloors got into contact with us recently, we honestly were excited to find out about this new online store! She curates everything you could possibly need in your home from wall to floors (see that's where the name comes from) and at the moment, mostly from Dutch and local Singaporean labels.
We had a field day looking through the site because it was totally up our alley.. the simplicity, functionality, materials and colours.. many pieces we could see in our home, so that's what we did - styled and shot our picks right at home. We literally placed the tables and accessories right into the different rooms and they fit right in, no redecorating needed! That's how seamlessly they blended in.
Two tone side table (white)
This white side table is perfect for that minimal style that everyone is going for. We placed it in the corner along the stairs, a great spot for some decor, flowers, or to place your keys when you get home. It's not too bulky and so so light, you can move it around at anytime.
We've long loved a good leather accessory and this leather tray looked like the new home for all the items that lived in our pockets during the work day. Keys, rings, earrings, watch everything went right in there so we wouldn't be running around like a headless chicken in the morning looking for our keys.. you know how it is.
Bowl with cover
This bowl.. if we had to use one word to describe it, it would be zen. Just the perfect size and the beautiful finish, with that wooden top, it's so multifunctional.
Oriented strand board side table (fluorescent orange)
Other than being generally a beautiful piece with an unexpected colour, the foldable table legs make this such a functional piece to move around and store when not in use.
Knitted pouf ottoman
Available in two different sizes, these poufs are great for relaxing in a corner with a book, or in the hallway to sit while putting on shoes.. you can lie on them or sit on them or place your feet on them, it's really up to you, but they are just a joy to have around. Just look at them.. how cute!

Based in France, Wo & We produces a collection of hand crafted contemporary lamps or rather sculptural lighting fixtures. The lamps are attached to the wall and are made up of adjustable "limbs" that be moved around to fit the space you are in.. or if you wish to shine a spotlight on a particular area.
Whether by the bed or in the dining area, these lamps are 100% cool and take up zero floor space which is already a plus factor in any home.

Anyone who's seen the Bloesem space knows about our love for the trestle legs that hold up our table tops. Thin and elegant, they don't take up much leg space and gives the space a light and airy feeling. And New gives us that same feeling. Using steel, Jo and Mirka have a minimal design aesthetic topped with a beautiful colour range.
Their powder coated designs bring a playful element to any space, with the use of colour and geometry in form. Produced in small batches in Britain, each piece is unique.. we love the playfulness they have injected into the pieces of furniture we view more as practical pieces in our home.
