Ode to Tord

I am positive that nearly everyone has seen at least one piece designed by Dutchman Tord Boontje.

His Garland Light has to be one of the most famous pieces and it's certainly a favourite of many interior designers and stylists. I was flicking through the brand new Christmas issue of Real Living magazine (you should check out their amazing 230+ Christmas Gifts under $200 - amazing!)... anyway one item featured is the Thinking Of You Vase by Artecnica and designed by Tord Boontje.

How incredible are these vases! They come as a flat pack and you assemble them yourself around a spare jar or vase. Any potential Santa's out there - this is high on my wish list for Christmas. :-)

You can pick them up in Sydney from DeDeCe Plus for $45 - $55 each.

For a truly beautiful time out, visit the Studio Tord Boontje website. It is a beautiful escape.Be sure to check out the Installations sections.

The image above is from a Winter Wonderland installation at the Swarovski Crystal gallery in Innsbruck, Austria. Crystals + Tord Boontje = heaven!
Happy Weekend!
