Brocade Design

Although they have been around for a while, the lacey, contemporary furniture and design
aesthetic of brocade design, has a timeless beauty that could work with any design style.
Their prices are very reasonable, but for a poor unemployed fairy like me, we can just dream!

Audi Sculpture takes off!

This mind boggling installation was designed by Gerry Judah to commemorate auto maker Audi's centenary. The 32 meter high sculpture? featured at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex weighs 44 tonnes. I love the juxtaposition of the modern design which really creates an essence of speed and the stately home in the background! Magnificent!

Don't know what's going in blogland, but everywhere I went this week, everyone was showing beds, maybe it because the summer heat is making us all drowsy and longing for a siesta?
Lovely anyway!
