…the weekends that is. They go far too quickly but at least there’s always another one to look forward to.

I made the colourful geometric shapes as Christmas decorations but they now add a splash of much needed colour to my office in a very grey january.

I bought the perpetual calendar on my last trip to New York from CB2. I can’t see them on their website which is a real shame if they don’t stock them anymore. They do deliver to the UK but they really should open some stores over here.

Lastly, just look at that cheeky little face of my Kay Bojesen monkey, I love him. A friend visited Copenhagen before Christmas and had one (or two) on her shopping list, when she asked if I wanted her to pick one up for me I just couldn’t resist. They are available at Skandium in the UK.

Happy Monday and have a great week all.

Happy New Year my Obsessive ones! A bit late I know but I literally haven’t stopped…well maybe for a bit of tweeting and Instagramming…Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a great New Year. 2012, whatever happened to 2011!? Not a great year to be honest and I was glad to see the back of it. It was a fantastic year for my design work ( apart from being blatantly ripped off! )  but not the best year health wise. I did manage to give up smoking ( after a cancer scare but all was OK thankfully ) and I’m still not smoking nearly nine months later. I really never thought I would ever give up and I smoked a lot! Believe when I say that if I can do it then anyone can!

As you can see from above I do have a few new pieces of gorgeousness. 2011 was a great year for bargains including the unit which, as you may have read before, I managed to get for £37.70! It really has become a very usual piece of furniture. The Jielde lamp was another bargain at £119 instead of the usual £350 plus. I’ve also started to collect pepper mills manufactured by Dansk and designed by Jens Quistgaard. I’m sure you will be seeing more designs as soon as I can get my hands on them, at the right price of course. To top it all off, David bought me the superb Scandinavian furniture book for Christmas. Furniture porn at it’s best.

The last new thing around here is the slightly different look to the blog. The banner may be a tad SHOUTY but I love the Graphique Pro font so I just had to use it. Hope you like it.

Hope you all have a fantabulous 2012….

I want them….I need them! I came across these absolute beauties on good old Evilbay but they are in America Land! Boo hoo….. They were designed by Arne Hovmand Olsen and manufactured by Mogens Kold of Denmark. Raina if you are reading this I thought you would covet them all as much as I do!
