Eames Elephant

I was told that Elephants bring luck, apparently elephants with trunks up, i have an intrincate figurine in my flat so I'm hoping for a good chunk of luck. But anyway my elephant post is not about luck but about Eames and its kids little chair. Quoting from Vitra who are manufacturing them "Charles and Ray Eames also succumbed to their charms and in 1945 designed a toy elephant made of plywood. However, it never made it into mass production. The Eames elephant is now available for the first time in a plastic version for those it was originally intended for: children."


I would love one for my flat, maybe as a stool or just to look at it but I think that the money will be better spent if I get one for my Goddaughter for Christmas, I have a feeling she will really enjoy the pink one and her trendy parents too! Way to go little elephant, a hard life is waiting for you around the corner (3 beautiful kids under 4).

Lonny Mag

Here in London I read Living Etc, the modern design British magazine that gives me inspirationa dn magnificient ideas. Some time ago there was Domino and Blueprint in the States, whcih unfortunately I didnt have the chance to enjoy... I might have to do a quick Ebay search. But now Lonny magazine is here, an online decor magazine that will satisfy my craving for all the beautiful!

Beautiful covers from Blueprint and Domino
I am LOVING this "For Like Ever" print on Domino cover


Here is an interview with Michelle Adams, the creator of Loony (what a sweet name, mix of London and NY! smiling)

Update: Lonny is on Vanity Fair!  Good for them!
