Powerful, mysterious and seductive black is universally prized. Embraced by both kings and monks, it is in turn melancholy’s confidant and glamour defined.
Whispers, the new wallpaper collection by Marcel Wanders celebrates polarity and the art of observation.Like little secrets, soft velvet whispers sparkle upon rough textured paper offering multiple yet opposing sensations to the touch and eye. The colors are dark, the details enigmatic, only upon close inspection do the narratives come to life. This is a wallpaper for intimate spaces such as a boudoir or a private bar, and within these spaces Whispers invites you to live your wildest dreams. Your secrets are safe. Black absorbs all.Tell me a secret… whisper something… no one else knows…
I love this collection by Marcel Wanders and feel it is fairly priced considering the quality and designs, at $160 per roll, each roll is 52cm wide and 10 meters long.The collection is of 4 designs with varying colors.

Bocci has introduced a huge range of color in its 28 series collection. Creative Director Omer Arbel’s intent behind 28 was to design a system that produces form, rather than designing form itself. A magnificent success, the pendants are designed to cluster in hexagonal shapes, which nestle into one another. Adding color introduces a grand range of infinite possibilities, from clustering by similar hues to creating amazing multicolor installations.Thus, every 28 series pendant made is formally different from any other in existence.

Ever since Hermès announced they introduced a furniture line in addition to a fabric and wallpaper line by Dedar, designers and fashion enthusiasts everywhere have been waiting anxiously to see them first hand. Yesterday I got the chance to see and feel their latest fabric and wallpaper to be available in the market VERY soon, at very selective places. The following images are a sneak peak of the magnificent collection, though the feeling is not the same as seeing them in person. You will notice the typical vibrant Hermes colors and patterns, their signature “bookcase” theme found in both wallpaper and fabric and in different tonalities, in addition to beautiful panel designs with the elephant pattern, fabrics with the famous “H”, and the iconic Hermès pattern shown above. I was actually pretty surprised at how big their debut collection is, and impressed with the magnificent quality and textures they worked with. Their first concern was to work with high quality threads and at some instances even used real horse hair! I will leave you with these beautiful images, a million creative ideas are going through my head as to how to incorporate them in a home’s interior *sigh*, enjoy!
This collection will be available soon at Design Circle in Tilal Mall , Shoueikh, if you have further inquiry you can contact [email protected] +965 2 246 246 0.
I am sure if Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman” had this placemat, her life would have been easier. I totally think this is a great and smart illustration that would be fun if used by restaurants, it would save a lot of embarrassment and would be educational at the same time. Designed by llotllov, this placemat is a great way to teach table manners the easy way.
“The placemat is not only a educational device, it is also amusing how strict some rules are.”

For the the 20th anniversary of the iconic Nevermind album of Nirvana,Fender® introduces one of its most distinctive signature models ever, the Kurt Cobain Jaguar®-meticulously modeled on the battered and highly unusual 1965 Jaguar that Cobain wielded during the heady early-’90s era when Nirvana ruled rock and led a musically stunning and culturally subversive movement.

If you are a shisha fan looking for a designer branded one, look no further. Porsche-Design has designed a luxury Shisha pipe (argeeleh) as part of their Porsche Design World Collection.
Porsche-Design have created a wide range of personal use items such as tea and soup sets, chopsticks, fashion wear , and the shisha pipe which is manufactured in Germany and made of modern materials such as stainless steel. It kind of reminded me of the one at Café Blanc.
“ The tube is made using TecFlex, which the brand also uses on the Porsche Design pen range.
The Shisha was launched at Porsche Design’s store within Harrods department store in Knightsbridge, London.”
