Design: Elephants in Rooms

Even though it’s the year of the horse, let’s talk about elephants, shall we? I see them coming up a lot lately – in a variety of forms – and I’m thinking that we’re going to see more and more of them over the next year. What do you think? Is my prediction spot on or way off?

 What’s your favourite elephant form – table, artwork, sculpture, bedding, ceramics? Do you already have an elephant collection?

Marketplace: EQ3 – Proudly Canadian

EQ3 is a Canadian furniture and home decor design company that strives to offer well-crafted and highly attractive products which are (mostly) made in Canada. I think EQ3 has a lot of great things to offer in terms of their inventory as well as in its design aesthetic and business philosophy. While you discover EQ3’s collection, be sure you don’t miss out on the work by some of my design favourites – Marimekko, Vitra, Alessi, and Herman Miller.
