My favourite shelter magazine is Livingetc from the UK. I’ve been buying it every month for about five years. Each issue is filled with cool decor items and beautiful homes from the UK and around the world.
I thought I’d start a regular blog feature called Lovingetc, showcasing some of my favourite items from each issue of Livingetc. Here’s the first instalment (I’m a bit behind on my magazine reading, to these are from the September 2010 issue). Let me know what you think!!
1. Like the Louis Ghost chair?? Then say Hello to Henry…
A modern take on the traditional wingback chair, The Henry is made from polycarbonate and is available in clear, smoke, black, or white. He’d look pretty handsome at the dining room table :-) (Available at EDC London.)
2. Think driving with the top down on a warm & sunny day is the ultimate driving experience? Well, then how about eating with the top down for the ultimate dining experience! Richard Elliot lives in a concrete & glass house in London’s Highgate Cemetery (hey, at least you know the neighbours will be quiet!!) The highlight of his cool home is a retractable kitchen roof.
Seriously, how awesome is that?! When the weather isn’t being cooperative, Richard can still eat under the stars because the roof is glass.
4. I’m sensing a theme here… The Air Lamp is made from one strip of super-thin wood veneer that’s bent and twisted to create a curvy lamp. Designed by Ray Power for Spanish manufactures LZF Lamps and available in finishes like white wood, cherry and beech veneer.
5. I love both this curved wall and the cool Le Pop wallpaper. It’s kind of retro and modern at the same time.
So what do you think — are you Lovingetc too?? :-) If you are, you can subscribe to the digital version of Livingetc at Zinio. 12 issues are $32.41 CDN.
