DESIGN | The Apartment

the-apartment-concept-store-700x1050

In NYC we have "The Apartment by The Line" in Copenhagen they have "The Apartment." Both are concept stores that sell furniture and art, but in a setting set up like a functioning home. The Apartment's wares are showcased in the elegant setting of an 18th century apartment in Christianshavn, in the heart of Copenhagen, which was handsomely restored by founders Tina Seidenfaden Busck and Pernille Hornhaver. They deal in  20th century furniture, contemporary art and design. They also do private consulting on art and design. Below are photos of all the different incarnations of The Apartment.

COOL GIFTS | The Ultimate (Colorless) Gift Guide.

gifts-b-&-w-

Welcome to the Sketch42 Gift Guides. I think this one is pretty freakin rad, if I do say so myself. And that's because I want or have, or would want everything on this page. We don't mess around here at Sketch. I tried to do a combo of big box stuff, plus indie artsy secret stuff. And I pulled so many things that I broke it up into monochromatic goodness, and colorful artsy craziness. And obviously, I had to include my own work because I wouldn't make it or sell it if I didn't really like it! Hope you enjoy! 1.PANIC PRINT $100 I'm in love with this, and all of this artist's work! 2.WHITE … [Read more...]

Loads of Wednesday Inspiration.

Inspiration-1029

Good Afternoon. What day is it again? Here is what I'm doing and looking at on in the internet right now. I'm digging this green color, and everything I'm seeing on French AD: Speaking of, I put some of my Paris photos into my print site. There are a million more, so this is really just a start! I'm still working on organizing all my photos and the site. Love these rooms.  Major thanks to Domaine Home and Mat Sanders for this right up of my print book and the accompanying interview! I really LOVE Whitney Port's new office space, designed by OKL. Those vintage art pieces are … [Read more...]

Old Masters.

mag-26OldMasters-ss-slide-AIL8-superJumbo

Carmen Herrera, painter, 99. Herrera sold her first painting at age 89. Her work is now in the permanent collections at the MoMA and the Tate Modern. I absolutely loved this story in the NYTimes magazine this weekend. It profiles different men and women in their 80's who are not only still working, but killing it. Let's not forget that this is the same week that we collectively freaked the fuck out over Renee Zellwegger's face. I always thought we, as a culture, feared old age. But no. There is dignity in old age, it's middle age we fear the most! When the blush of youth is gone but the … [Read more...]

Inside the Kohler Factory| Then and Now.

2014-07-10_Brad_02-55_JOB005866__MG_0011

Have you ever been on a factory tour? I'm really racking my brain here trying to think of other time that I have - maybe with school? or Grandma as a kid? I can't recall! Last week, I was treated to a 2 day trip to Kohler, Wisconsin with a group of other bloggers. When I was initially invited, I said yes, because A, Kohler is a great brand, and B, I love traveling in America, and when else am I going to get to go to Wisconsin? Right? Sometimes blogger events are GREAT, and other times they are eh, not that inspiring and, you may or may not be contractually obligated to blog about it, if you … [Read more...]
