saturday in design
this weekend mark and i cruised through Saturday in Design…. ‘cruised’ being the operative word.
we had full intentions of starting at Tait Outdoor, continuing onto richmond to finish off in the city.
we thought we had it made with those special SiD buses taking all involved to and from all venues about
the place. thank you mr bus drivers..
we were off to a great start.. our first stop was to visit our good friends Suzie and Gordon Tait at Tait Outdoor,
also sharing space with ISM Objects, both stylish and slick, with new products launched. i think we may put
in an order for those stools ms tait and i wouldn’t mind those lights by ism over our kitchen bench thanks.
after the much needed soy latté [for me], long black [for him] and mini muffins that were on offer, we moved on.
thank you Suzie and Gordon!
we caught a SiD bus to richmond.. our second stop was Living Edge and this is where it went terribly wrong
and it depends how you look at it really. apart from being one of my favourite stores in melbourne, it was
red wine o’clock. we grabbed ourselves a glass and wondered around the store as if in a dream. we perused
on over to the other end of the bar to find crackers, fine cheeses, delicious olives and ham off the bone.
we found a friend, sat down, chatted, drank.. and chatted some more.. our friend left.. mark and i chatted,
nibbled on some more olives and cheese and watched people saunter in and out. i noticed [again]
these designer types, look hot.. ALL the time. a hint of jealousy swept over me.. then i took another sip and
Living Edge is the home of original Eames furniture. you might say i am Charles and Ray Eames obsessed.
[i have two tattoos inspired by the dynamic duo, one of which i share with my soul sister, Candace. she lives in
San Francisco]. that’s the gorgeous Candace on the right.. me on the left, proudly modelling our tattoos..
inspired by Ray Eames textile pattern and Charles Eames Power of Ten video.
so anyway, although this might be worth knowing for future giveaway competitions.. wink*.. i digress.
so.. back to Living Edge, where we seemed to be in our own time zone, discussed [again]
purchasing [one day] the Eames storage unit rather than renovate our stupid bathroom [don't get me started
on that subject] before we knew it, it was getting close to 14:00 and we hadn’t even started.
here’s a peek inside Living Edge ..
The Miniature Cork Chair Competition
quite brilliant really!
and to be continued…
