Meet the beautiful and functional products of Eva Solo. The philosophy that drives design at the company is that “everywhere life is lived, we aim to create a more pleasurable experience – in the kitchen, the bathroom, the living room or the garden.” Here’s a tempting sampling of some of their innovative modern designs for everyday objects.Birdtable_standing_white_571029.jpg

This philosophy even applies to feeding the birds, where their Standing Bird Table is a piece of modern sculpture.

They also make life easier — their planters water themselves. There will be no more dried out basil plants in the kitchen. This is the Selfwatering Flowerpot.

They even make dieting and cooking easier — this digital scale is one you’ll want to leave out on the counter to keep you in check, with its colorful, minimalist design. Table_grill_white_571020.jpg

This fireproof porcelain Table Grill means you can grill your food right at the table, whether your at home, at the beach or out to the backyard.

No it’s not SunCountry or Bartles and James, the Staycool Wine Cooler is a stylish little jacket that will keep your rosé at the right temperature while jazzing it up in a cool outfit.SweepUp_530670.jpg

No broom closet is necessary for the sleek SweepUp Broom and Dustpan.

This is just the tip of the Eva Solo iceberg — we carry a wide array of their brilliantly designed cookware, kitchen utensils, serveware, china, glassware, teapots, jugs and much more. Eva Solo products make great housewarming, hostess and wedding gifts, and of course the best kind of gift, one for yourself.

5 Tips for Using Reclaimed Wood in Your Home

Taken from old barns and other buildings, and even on site in some construction projects, reclaimed wood lends a rustic and warm cabin-like feel to any space around the home. One of the biggest benefits of “harvesting” wood from old structures is that you can often find lumber that’s no longer available, such as old-growth denser species and species like chestnut that no longer grow tall and mighty due to the blight. Here are some tips for using reclaimed wood in your home.

Keep bedding simple to put the focus on the reclaimed wood. This bedroom strikes just the right balance between modern and rustic, with its concrete floor, clean lines and weathered wood. (Room by Briggs Edward Solomon)

Don’t be afraid to add color to a room with a wood accent wall. Chartreuse adds a great dash of color in this contemporary rustic bedroom. And we love the faux trophies — they add an playful touch. (wood and photo via Stikwood)

Consider reclaimed wood in the bathroom. Annie from the blog Annie’s Blessed Nest did a lovely job on her powder room reclaimed wood accent wall.  And she’s been generous enough to share how you can do it to.

Look to smaller items that integrate reclaimed wood. Some products can add just the right dose of rustic reclaimed wood to your home. When curating our offerings, we were drawn to this table lamp because we love the contrast between the 100% recovered wood fiber base and the crisp white linen lampshade.

Clean white is a great backdrop for reclaimed wood. It lets the wood stand out and become a focal point, but doesn’t let the rough quality overpower the room. This is an especially good way to go in a kitchen where you want things to look, feel and be sanitary.

Have you tried using reclaimed wood at home? If you’ve got any tips to share, please let us know in the comments.

Great Pinners To Follow

Have fallen into the black hole of time-sucking that is Pinterest? We try to keep up, but we also need to do things like sleep, eat and run Design Public! But when we allow ourselves those wonderful moments to get inspired by the latest design ideas people have curated from around the web, we find ourselves drawn to these busy Pinners’ boards over and over again. And we wonder, when do they have time to eat or sleep!

sfgirlbybay / Victoria Smith. Smith’s bohemian modern taste and style has been one of our favorites for many years, all the way back to the early days of blogs and Flickr. Since then, we’ve seen her apply her unique personal style to different abodes around San Francisco, and most recently, we’ve been following her fixing up her new house in Los Angeles. She’s got 142 boards to keep track of, so know that once you hit her page, it will be a long time before you leave. Block out a good amount of time!

Tyler Goodro. We’ve had our eye on the guys behind Plastolux.com’s great eye for years, and his Pinboards keep us busy repinning.

Jonathan Boivin. Time and time again, we find ourselves getting lost in Jonathan’s boards, whether we want to be inspired by travel to incredible places, gorgeous interiors or street art.

Well, we’ve covered desks and lamps in our Back to School Design Public Guides. Now it’s time for comfy and attractive chairs for homework time. Here are some of our top picks from around the site. 13-0005343.jpg

Steelcase Think Chair. This ultimate desk chair is smart enough to adjust to you and the rest of your family members’ weights and postures. There’s built-in lumbar allows for additional dialed in back support. The 4-way adjustable arms provide support for your arms, wrists, and shoulders in a variety of postures. The 4-way adjustable arms provide support for your arms, wrists, and shoulders in a variety of postures.

Steelcase Move Multi-Use Chair with Upholstered Seat. There’s more to this stylish and stackable chair that meets the eye. Under the seat cushion there is a support system that conforms to your body — flexors inside the seat curve with your curves and move as you move. What I like most about it is it’s versatility; it can serve as a comfy desk chair or dining chair. So working at the kitchen table is comfortable, or if it’s in your kiddo’s room, you can reclaim it when she goes off to college.

rollersideappleModernica Side Shell with Rolling Base Chair. This molded fiberglass classic is a modern icon, made from the original molds that the Eameses designed. The seat height adjusts approximately from 18 inches to 22 inches. I chose the version that rolls, because rolling is fun and can tempt your child right into the homework seat. Let him have some fun cruising the floor before he has to get down to business. blue_graphite

 

Steelcase Turnstone Buoy Chair. Sometimes ya gotta shake up homework time a bit. The buoy chair looks like it’s meant for something more fun than homework, so let it work its deceptive magic and tempt your child right over to those sentences she needs to diagram. The buoy wobbles and engages the core, and the height can be adjusted in a five-inch range.

real_good_modern_chair_red_sm

Blu Dot Real Good Chair. We picked this powder-coated beauty in red because it enlivens the senses and ignites passion. While available in other lovely colors, grab a red one for homework time.

visu_sledbase_black_field_142.jpgMuuto Visu Chair — Sled Base, Upholstered Seat. The cozy upholstered seat on this version of the Visu chair is inviting and ergonomic. The sled base on this version adds an irresistibly modern touch.

Blu Dot Roy Chair. This chair made the list for four great reasons. It’s padded, attractive, stackable and available at a great price point.

We wish we had the room to share more details about our desk chair selection. But you can check them out for yourself:

Here at Design Public, we’re gearing up for back to school and homework time with a series of guides to workstation products. What we’ve kept in mind with our curation is not only lamps that will function well and fit comfortably on a desk, but also designs that will not only appeal to your schoolkiddo but also to you. These task lamps are stylish, modern and will last you for a long time after your child has flown the nest. In fact, the only danger is that you’ll be tempted to hijack these for yourself.
