Epiforma is a recently established Portuguese design studio that aims to tell visual stories across a range of disciplines. It’s not hard to grasp why I’m a big fan of the Meanwhile Curiosities collection. Labeled as “a conceptual representation of time,” the shapes and materials—ranging from metal (steel and aluminum) to solid wood (ash and oak) to stone (granite and marble)—are all about playful exploration. While these functional objects and furniture are engaging, I also love the colors and the styling of the photography.

Recreation Center Ceramics

Talk about a pattern party! Meet Recreation Center. Started by Josephine Heilpern after she graduated from New York’s Cooper Union, Recreation Center is all about functional and fun ceramics. The forms themselves are simple, while the patterns and finishes are totally unique. Heilpern’s background is rich in print and sculpture, and her aesthetic is inspired in part by the Memphis design movement. These pieces are sure to perk up any dining table.

Wallpapers from Black Crow Studio

by Joanna on October 27, 2014

Wow, just … Wow. These wallpapers and murals by Black Crow Studios make quite the statement, don’t you think? Available as-is or totally customized, these designs are the perfect way to make a statement in your home. I find myself especially drawn to the bold watercolor series and the gemstone series and wish I could wallpaper my bathroom with them. If you’re a renter like me, Black Crow Studios also offers the ability to print their motifs on canvas or fine-art paper for framing, thus minimizing the commitment. Believe me, my interior design wheels are turning.

Sandro Lopez

Architectural, clean, and modern—this is the work of designer Sandro Lopez, who believes in the importance of process during the creative journey. As he says: “To faithfully preserve the purity of a vision, the responsibility of the designer needs to encompass the entirety of the journey.”

Lopez recently exhibited a new collection at the London Design Festival. Isn’t the overhead view of his Parallax coffee table (below) amazing?

Rinn Textiles by Erin Gilkes

Do you ever find something that you don’t know what to do with it or where to put it, but you just know you want to possess it? That is exactly how I feel about these pieces from Rinn Textiles by Erin Gilkes. The table tapestries are made of both wool and linen and totally handmade in her Hamilton, Ontario, studio. Each piece is totally one-of-a-kind, so the hardest part, really, is picking a favorite.
