Che Figata (That's Cool)

Block Lamps

I recently came across a very cool lamp design: Block Lamps by Harri Koskinen. He is a Finnish designer. Block lamps are lightbulbs held inside two shaped pieces of clear glass. Very modern, very minimalist and very cool.


A Natural Bed Frame

I just love this very unique bed frame! It is rustic and organic, yet modern too. It's from a beautiful boutique hotel, Camellas Lloret, in Montreal, France.


Wire Fishing Baskets

While I was vacationing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California I visited a little town called Jamestown. It's a quaint spot just off highway 108 in the center of California gold country. The buildings are reminiscent of the 1840s and 50s gold rush, and several antique stores take you back in time. I came across some very cool wire fishing baskets.

By inserting a light bulb they could easily be transformed into very cool light fixtures similar to the ones featured below.
Che figata! Very cool!


Cool Decor in Berkeley, California

On a recent vacation to the San Francisco Bay Area (my home) I came across a unique interior décor shop on College Avenue in Berkeley called Nathan & Co.


I love this very cool pendant lamp (above). With a little ingenuity, you could make this yourself using kitchen gadgets like a colander and pans. Although I love the white, it would look great in stainless steel too! Very cool.


I am planning on knocking off this very cool 3D wire initial (above). What a unique decoration this would be. You could insert clear mini lights to make it a light feature.


Lately, I am really getting into wire baskets being used as light fixtures. This one (above) is very cool! You could recreate this look yourself with a metal fishing basket. Would look great painted a bright color like red or chartreuse. Che figata!


I adore this simple hanging burlap bunny (above). It would be really easy to make. You could stuff it with herbs or potpourri.


If you like the Nordic tradition of hanging antlers on a wall but don't want to use real ones, these iron antlers (above) would be perfect. Very cool!


I ended up buying these cute hanging candle holders (above). They could easily be copied using a simple water glass and twine. Simple but very cool!
