I stumbled on Lindsey Adelman's website of custom hand blown glass lighting. This is the 7-Globe Branching Bubble, made with brass. Not for the bargain shopper but, by the looks of it, worth every penny.
I can't figure out if it is the color of the cushion that has seduced me - but I think its the overall quirkiness. Seems like a fun idea for a foyer where you need that bench for shoe-putting-on, those drawers to hide clutter, a surface for a pretty lamp or vase. The Claude Walnut Gossip Bench at Jonathan Adler.
The Barcode Pillow from Ferm Living, perfect for all of you out there scanning everything in sight and posting about it on Twitter and FB. (Now THAT I don't get, but this humorous graphic pillow I can get behind.)
