The fact is that plants are beautiful but they don't stay that way too long, especially when you forget to water them 3 days in a row because you were swamped at the office. It can sometimes be tough keeping plants alive, we know that for a fact, especially when the weather isn't always on your side.
Tableau by Pikaplant is an automatic (music to our ears) plant watering tray. It mimics the natural wet-dry cycle of groundwater, for healthier herbs and house plants. It uses no electricity and waters up to 4 plants. We've got smart phones, now we've got smart plants.. the simple design also makes this a great addition to any window sill or office table. We won't have the fear of plants dying on us before we remember to water them. Definitely something exciting to start the week off with!
We should support great inventions so here's their kickstarter campaign..

Creative workshop Pop & Scott recently opened their showroom in Northcote, Victoria.. you might recognise them for their hand-painted pots which are so popular all pots are on backorder, Woah! Other than their crowd-pleasing pots, Pop & Scott make beautiful custom made and hand-painted furniture as well. Using recycled or sustainably sourced wood from Australia, their furniture with it's clean and simple design would fit nicely into any home. We're sure it'll be a piece that would be around for a long long time.

"Every single piece is unique and handmade with love." Little Upside Down Cake curates a selection of beautiful handmade products, ranging from ceramics to leather products, by a group of Portuguese makers. Each of the pieces are created in very small scale edition and celebrates every single imperfection of the creating process. The handwork and passion that goes behind handcrafting each piece is remarkable... that when you use it you can feel the hands of who made it!

Urbe is a family of tables, chairs and stools by Italian designer, Pasquale Alison. Inspired by the different cities in Italy, the collection of furniture is characterized by different prints of the Italian cities of Rome, Naples, Milan, Ponza and Capri. The tops of the pieces depict maps of the different cities and come in different colours. Great pieces that help combine our love for furniture and travel!

"Less is More" - I think everyone is familiar with this saying. This is also the philosophy behind Saniyo. Their aim is to design simple, socially responsible and functional pieces for everyone to enjoy.
Their first collection "Gathering" is a partyware set that includes cups, plates and even a nested condiment set. Taking inspiration from the solar system, they wish to remind users that as humans we are part of something bigger, the universe. Remember that in this big world with so many things and people and animals, we should cherish the ones nearest and dearest to us - family and friends.
We thinks that a great reason to have a party, don't you? Celebrate life, everyday!
