Just to prime this post we're going to just put it out there: The entire Aust & Amelung collection is fantastic! With no lack of media coverage of their designs, the dynamic duo Miriam and Sebastian come up with new products based on their interest in the way we interact with objects in our daily lives. Some examples of their want-worthy designs is the bench, floor lamp and vase. We love their out of the box thinking, their products definitely have a Wow factor.

With the recent launch of the Veggie collection, we were drawn to Carmen's beautiful posters under her label Vontrueba. We love how she places with textures and layers and on top of the already beautiful posters, her styling for the product shots are home runs. Everything on her website is all so visually exciting! Read on for a few more of our favorites from her collection.

Thanks to the lovely Jurianne Matter for sharing the beautiful Sputnik lamps by Julie Lansom. The 26 year old designer of these glorious lamps does not just create but she also documents using film. She says she shoots her analog photography because she has "shitty memory", well, at least we get to enjoy the lovely fruits of said horrible memory.
All the lamps are unique and handmade by her in her workshop in Paris. We are utterly impressed!

I wait here is a new online shop which had an exposition at Designkwartier last month with, amongst many other things, the beautiful ceramics by Kristie van noort.
We believe that a good picture can sell any product, and I wait here is a really good example of how the amazing styling and photography makes the shopping experience a breeze for the customer. A visually inspiring website, just what we needed to brush off the monday blues!

Well okay.. not really, but we do have a papillionaire bicycle outside the shop now! Isn't it a beauty? The kind folks over at Style Bicycles Asia thought we would love to have one of these outside Bloesem, and of course we totally agree.
The basket is both beautiful and functional, acting as a great holder of Bloesem Gazettes. The bicycle also makes it 10x easier to spot Bloesem from further down along the street.
There were so many beautiful colors and even different styles of bicycles that we could choose from but this Papillionaire Sommer definitely spoke to us. Plus it rides soooo smoothly. I mean I'm not much of a cyclist but it is too tempting to have a bicycle outside the store and not take it for a spin. Personally, I (Zara) am not confident enough to cycle around the streets but Irene and Anouk (being Dutch and all) and born cyclists so I have to say, the bicycle fits Bloesem perfectly. Maybe we should name it? Any suggestions?

A modern take on a classic design.. Danish Lucie Kaas know the way! Founded in 2012 Lucie Kaas came up with a number of re-launches of mid-century Scandinavian designs. Pretty wooden figures designed by Gunnar Flørning in the late 50's - that baby elephant is so cute! - and beautiful "Lotus" ceramics after a pattern designed in the urly 60's by Norwegian artist Arne Clausen. Wouldn't you just love some of these happy colors on your breakfast-table?.. I know i would! x Christine – House of C
