Chip off the old block...

I rarely trawl Etsy. Mostly because once you've seen "RegrEsty" you can't take anything seriously, and it tends to be full of overpriced, poorly made items.
But not in all cases, and these in particular intrigued me:

Blocked furniture and steel combs by Project Sunday

Also quite fancying jewellery from Deuce:

As well as:

lighting from Hammer and Heels

Any of these vintage letter lights

...Literal or chess?

By London based De Matos Ryan Architects. 

Angular Americana...

I love the feel and style of this design, although I think it is a touch overkill. Still - what a bathroom!
It's called 18.36.54 (based on its 18 planes, 36 points and 54 lines of construction) by Studio Daniel Libeskind and sits in Connecticut.

I've always fancied getting my paws on a tiny, unconventional flat. Modern storage solutions and building techniques mean you can be really creative and I love the challenge of making something uncomfortable into a lovely home. 
Still, you need to have vision, ala Specht Harpman Architects, who turned this pokey Manhattan loft into a really desirable space.
