5 Origami-Inspired Designs

We’ve noticed a trend, and we’re quite fond it. Nothing is as sleek and geometrically intricate as origami — the Japanese art of paper folding — so how could you go wrong with a design based on it? We’ve noticed a lot of origami inspired products and designs lately so we rounded up a few of our favourites to admire and praise.

1) The Origami Bench

Created by blackLAB architects, this bench combines clean white with exposed wood and metal. Plus it folds and creases as seamlessly as paper.

2) Make Kiosks

Make Architects created these kiosks based on the efficient and functional concept of folding paper. They open to reveal the kiosk inside and close to become sculpture-like when not in use.

3) Kafolda: a Fold-it-Yourself Spoon

This spoon is mailed to you flat. You are in charge of folding it into the perfect shape — with crisp corners to reach right to the edges of a flat container.

4) Klemens Torggler Doors

These doors fold and rotate to open and close, looking as light as paper.

5) Folded Tones Rug

This rug does not actually fold or bend like origami, but it sure looks like it does. An optical illusion for your floor!

Inspirational Design of the Week: Wallmond's Hanger Frame

We love wall art, we love unique design and this definitely has both.

The Wallmond’s Hanger Frame is made to decorate your space, while holding your belongings. It may not look like it at first, but those size-varying waves and grooves are ideal for hanging different sized items. The waves also create a wall, behind which you’ll find storage space for those objects that can’t hang very well.

The Hanger Frame is made from solid birch plywood, so it is not only durable as a hanger it is also easy on the eyes as sleek wall art.

BlogHeader-Feb7

In the midst of this frosty winter, we can’t help but dream of spring. And what better way to plan for the coming season than to plan for updating your home decor?

We were inspired by Elle Decor’s recent article about the colors of the year and thought we would give you a peek at some of our portraits that will help you have the most unique art on your walls, and follow the year’s trends!

1) Sand

Print  Print  Print

One of the top colors this year is a beige tone entitled “Sand.” This is a subtle color that can be used as the main focus, with bright accents or can be used as a soft accent color for bright walls. There are a number of Fingerprint Portraits that would suit either situation, but we’ve pulled a few of our favourites.

2) Placid Blue 

CORAL-2

Still a soft color, this blue allows you to put a touch of color into your space. If you want to use this blue as your accent, we recommend the Coral DNA Portrait to add a splash of that color to your walls.

3) Paloma

FUSION    BECK

Greys can be perceived as boring shades, but we’re seeing so many modern and urban interiors that are incorporating the color into awesome spaces. The above Kiss Portraits will help to put this color in your rooms, as well as add some flare to your home.

4) Freesia

Print     ATOMIC

 

Getting a little bit more adventurous, we have a bright yellow in this year’s trends. These portraits are an easy way to add that burst of color to the room without being overwhelming. Plus, what’s more spring-like then a sunny yellow portrait.

5) Celosia Orange 

Print     CITRON

Last but not least we have an orange that made it into the mix. Much like the yellow, you only need one or two pieces to spice up a room dramatically.
