I am quite fascinated by these cracked resin and wood side tables by Andrianna Shamaris. I know they have a feel of glam but there is something natural and unnatural about them. The wood and cracked resin, which looks like crystal, feels like natural elements from the earth while the geometric precision cut shapes feel unnatural. Make sure you visit her site as she has an amazing body of work. These pieces are truly sculpture.
I have always loved the work of Paul McCobb. The only pieces I have owned of his were a set of four shovel chairs but sadly those are gone. While trolling Flickr I came across some stunning groupings of Paul’s work. Reform Gallery looks to have put together this amazing collection. There is something elegant and refined about the materials and design found in McCobb’s work. Thanks Jonathan for letting me share your photos!
KAPITAL, Italian marble and stone sculptures by Oeuffice design studio. I am going to call these amazing geometric puzzle like pieces of art, sculpture. I don’t know if they are stools or serve any other function than to just be amazing. The different textures and patterns found in the marble and stone paired with interlocking geometric parts create simple but intricate pieces.
Sometimes I just need a large helping of eye candy AKA a little mid century shopping. Last week I featured the home of Demetrio Zanetti who happens to be the owner at demosmobilia. I like to look through sites and stores like this in hopes to learn and discover pieces I had never seen before. Demetrio has an amazing collection of furniture, art and lighting. The last picture here is the store, AMAZING!

While moving through tumblr I came across the Kieran Stump by BDDW. I like just about everything BDDW produces now including these wood stools. They look like small chess pieces with a little more character. I appreciate the diversity of shape and materials shown in these images. Could you image one in rosewood? I do like the design that has the small pointer legs and a pot belly roundness.
I recently came across an announcement about Auction house Piasa and its new Parisian HQ with a sale of designer Peder Moos’ unknown works. I had never heard of Moos but I am intrigued by his story and his works. Obviously there some other amazing pieces of furniture in these pictures. It sounds like he was a very hands on craftsman.
