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!

As people who enjoy creating things ourselves, we truly appreciate the handmade pieces in Yonder. Along with her own series of ceramics, artist and founder of Yonder, Linda Fahey, curates a collection of pieces in the store, each with it's own story to tell. Located in Pacifica, California, visitors can find a cosy space filled with unique items gathered from a community of creators.
If you feel like the items you see here give you a relaxed and beauty feel then you are spot on! The artisan-goods at Yonder are inspired by the spirit of the northern beaches.

No screws? No problem! The Zoo chair by Mayice might just be magic. This impressive piece of furniture works as a chair, shelving, table, magazine rack, really it's just up to how creative you are. They come in several colours and are stackable which make a great shelving unit with pops of colour.
100% handmade in Spain, the Zoo chair is made from pine wood, derived from sustainable forests, and does not include any substructures or screws in its manufacturing. The Mayice team has an ongoing crowdyhouse campaign for their Zoo multidisciplinary furniture. Support great designs!
Starting Monday off with a little magic aren't we?

Kick off the week with some new pillows to change it up in your living room. Spice things up with some new colours and prints on the couch. These new linen throw pillows were just added to the collection over at Cotton and Flax and we love how simple and fun they are. Every piece is cut, printed and sewn in Los Angeles.
Hoping over to the Cotton and Flax website, we also spotted some outrageously adorable prints on notebooks..

Captured by Australian ceramic artist, Andrei Davidoff 's, smoke-curl brushwork on his white porcelain pieces. The calligraphy-like strokes and the dark stoneware clay in the series would create a pop against any item or food placed on them.
Andrei's pieces can be seen as minimalist, which is not surprising with his love for Japanese ceramics and Scandinavian design.

Japanese label, Lue, believes that the hands are the most accurate and delicate. Even more so than machines when creating their range of handmade brass pieces. Working exclusively with Brass, the studio creates utensils, stationary and accessories out of their workshop in Japan. They see brass as a beautiful material that becomes more attractive with age, which is in line with the philosophy behind their products - made to last.
