Some beautiful images from Hitoshi Uchida’s dreamy home in Japan:

I really should stop dropping into The Republic of Fritz Hansen every time I am the Oxford Circus area! I usually go in to gloat at the vintage knickknacks they are selling for a bomb which I already own and scored for cheap. ( Yes. I am sad. 😉 )

However, every time I go in there I also find they have brought something new and beautiful in shop for me to covet…

…like these Festivo candlesticks I snapped below last week by Timo Sarpaneva for Iittala.

I have seen these a million times in images, as they have been around since 1966, but seeing their solid chunkiness shimmering in real light made all the difference.

I want them now. In multiples. Many mulitples. Like below…

What a greedly gorgeous grouping. Even without candles they are stunning. Sigh.

As happens, I am now noticing them everywhere:

Here is the old school label:

Check out those great candles!

I am thinking this year is the perfect year to start collecting, as not only do I have a milestone birthday coming up (!), but have a dear friend crossing for a visit via…wait for it…FINLAND! How perfect is the timing? I know for a fact she will be visiting the Iittala factory, so may put in a request before she goes.

Also putting it out there to any of you, nearer the time (several months yet!), who may be struggling to find a gift (I know I am a right royal pain in the arse to shop for, so since my early twenties have tried to make it easier. I know no shame.).

One of these, any size will do. For the next 3 years. Heh. No, seriously!

I really like the idea of getting these from my nearest and dearest and being able to think back to this birthday every time I see them.

Puuuuhlease?

A couple great shots from the new Rue Magazine:

I have a Monday morning question for all of you out there…Does anyone know who these chairs are by?

The images are from a Swedish real estate site, so they are likely Scandi.

I LOVE THEM.

Sometime last year, the Bubs and I found an old wooden ladder in a skip behind St. Pauls. Seeing its potential, I had my poor house elf cart it home for me and it has spent the winter outdoors, weathering, to what I hope will be a lovely silver.

I still don’t know where it will go…or where we will have room! But saw a bunch of great ladder images I want to share for inspiration:

Loving the feel of this place with its mix of crystal and Le Klint lighting and leather chairs.
