There are so many beauties floating around instagram following the Maison & Objet show in Paris over the last few days. I’m not quite sure how many hours I’ve spent just enthralled with not only how much is out there, but how much interesting and good design is out. Yoh, there are some talented people in this world!

I fell right in love with this funky and colourful stationery from Write Sketch &. (yes, the name is correct)
Shibui, although a Japanese word, is a range of hand-crafted homeward and accessories created by two Greek designers. Their products are said to embody the principles of Shibui – using the greatest restraint and the minimum of materials.
