Fairytale chandelier turns room into forest


Not yet available, but already in demand, this amazing chandelier from Danish Hilden & Diaz projects a 360° shadow of trees and roots on the walls surrounding it. It was inspired by drawings of German biologist and philosopher Ernst Haeckel. I love it!

Living in a shoe


As kids we all grew up with stories of fairytale creatures or characters living in shoe shaped houses. I personally must have drawn at least a 100 pictures of such homes. And I remember a girl in my school having a doll sized shoe house. I was intensely jealous of her for that.

For some of us a drawing or doll size version wasn’t enough… nor did they outgrow their fetish as an adult as the images below prove.
