Spot on Square Sale


Posted by Ali | View all posts by Ali

Yip yip! Spot on Square is on sale! From Nov 8th to the 30th the Roh and Hiya Collections are 15% off*.

We are big fans of their clean modern designs, especially since so many pieces can easily transition a design-lovers drool worthy nursery to a super chic modern adult pad without any obvious overlap. So, when little Timmy grows up and moves out you can use his Roh Bookshelf in your living room or bedroom…a gift for him is a gift for you.

Of course, we are still drooling over the Spot on Square Roh Crib in the photo above.  Does it look familiar?  That’s because it is the same modern crib we posted about a few weeks ago as seen in Rachel Zoe’s home. Talk about a room with a view – this beautiful crib is every modern design loving parent’s dream – in place of the traditional wooden crib bars you’ll discover that the Spot on Square Roh Crib has half-inch clear acrylic.  (And don’t worry – it’s BPA free, phthalate free, and 100% recyclable!) Bob and Nicole Springer, the husband and wife team who founded the company and created this incredibly modern crib, believed that children should be surrounded by simple, eco-conscious, high-quality products that promote an appreciation for design.  To Bob and Nicole, we say – congratulations – mission accomplished!  So dive in now, because for a limited time, you can get these gorgeous products at a discount*!  Score!

Spot on Square sale pieces…Check it!

*Sorry, Eicho pieces are excluded from the sale and this promo cannot be combined with any other discount.

I had forgotten that it was one of the extra shots of the ever-popular Blu Dot Nook Bed. It’s fun contemporary style may just inspire you to put on your favorite gold leotard, feathered fascinator and weird leggings (Spanx?) and jump for joy on your modern bed.

The full, queen, and king-sized beds offer SIX, count ’em SIX drawers for storage, while the twin size offers three. This clever bed has modern lines, comes in scrumptious finishes, and has clean modern lines that will help your bedroom reach its Zen goals.

The Cooper Hewitt Design Awards


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

I just received this email from Cooper Hewitt, urging me to vote for the People’s Design Award this year. It’s a very democratic way of anointing good design with the kudos it deserves:

Every year, the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum confers the National Design Awards, which are chosen by a jury of distinguished design gurus. But do you agree with the experts? Whether it’s handmade or mass-produced, high-end or low brow, if it’s well-designed, we want to hear about it!

Cast your vote on your favorite design from product design to architecture and from graphic design to fashion design.

Well, here at DP we’re a bit biased, because we super-duper love Bow Bins by Cordula Kehrer for Areaware, which are new to our site! So to vote for them, click here.

We also adore the David Weeks Guthrie Cubebot, also up for the award:

Vote for Guthrie here.

Oh, and we love that the Jonas Damon Alarm Clock is one you don’t feel like you need to hide on your nightstand. An ugly digital alarm clock can really wreck a tablescape.

Vote for this gorgeous alarm clock here.

Finally, the classic Kartell Ghost Chair has become a classic icon in its short life:

Click here to show some Louis love.

Finally, for all of you jumping on the ping pong bandwagon, try this handle-less version by Alfred Brodmann.

Vote for the Brodmann Blades PingPong Set here

Flickr Faves of the Week: Hotel OTTO in Berlin

This week a group of images in our Fresh New Spaces Group on Flickr caught my attention. They were the minimalist spaces from a boutique hotel in Berlin called Hotel OTTO. Here, the neutral color palette and restrained furnishings let you enjoy the view, the photography and the warm hardwood floors:

This simple bedroom contains lots of space saving tips, including using thin but colorful upholstered canvases in lieu of a clunky headboard, and utilizing swing arm sconces to save nightstand space (and of course, when you don’t have room to cram in a nightstand, these are a great solution as well).

The palette is kept very simple, letting this iconic Eames fabric get the attention it deserves:

However, if a subtle blue, gray and black palette is not for you, they’ve got some electric preppy pink and green options for you. Note the extra shelf on the nightstand, which is great for tucking away books, magazines, and even that annoying glow from a digital clock that can exacerbate an insomniac. They’ve also scooped up some of the floor space with this piece so that you can take some of that stuff out of your suitcase and really get comfortable:

Thanks so much to Hotel OTTO for sharing these shots with the group! More information about Hotel OTTO

Drooling Over the Design at the Zurich Airport

Zurich Airport

If I was Tom Hanks and I had to temporarily live in an airport like he did in The Terminal, hands down my pick of residences would be the Zurich Airport. As expected for an airport in Switzerland, there were so many quality architectural and design worthy items worth drooling over…from the stairs, to the ceilings, to the check-in counters to the wall lightings to the clocks…

We had to take photos. We had to have the “If we ever get to build our own home we want Read the rest of this entry »
