The Loco by Studio Boot for Ixxi
Ixxi famous for their wall hung pixleated images have a new collection of geometric patterns that accompany their successful figurative range. Add a feature wall, tile a whole room or a door, the possibilities are endless and you can dip into the tiled wall trend/look with ease as no tiler is required. The tiles can be attached and removed easily which is a bonus if you change your home regularly. Alongside the tiles you receive a booklet of patterns that come with the pack to inspire you to create up to 32.642 graphic designs. The Loco box contains 50 cards, is available in the colors Pink (fluorpink/warm grey/red/white) and Yellow (fluoryellow/warm grey/green/white) and costs € 149, – (186 USD).
Sian Zeng is a versatile textile designer producing a range of interesting homewares. The allover wallpaper patterns such as the ‘Woodland’ (see above) caught my eye, what makes them noteworthy is that they are magnetic and come alive with the array of magnets supplied with the roll. Alongside this range I discovered Sian produces other home products and gifts, I found this bear, perfect for the discerning parent and the creative child, a hit.
PRINT AND MORE PRINT:
Coinciding nicely with launch of their magnificent Paisley Crescent and Buddha of Suburbia ranges, I officially appoint the cult label Mini Moderns as ‘Store of the Week’. A visit to this ‘Shoppe’ will take you back to an era when cd players didn’t exist and you had to record the Top 40 tunes on cassette recorders. Nostalgia rules and for retro prints so do Mini Moderns.
