Paris-based designer Samuel Accoceberry created a collection of rugs for Chevalier Edition called Tresse, which is French for plait, i.e. braid. Meant to reflect “the spirit of plaiting and hand work,” the series uses a traditional hand-knotting technique to achieve the contemporary braided look of the design.The bold look changes shape depending on the size of the rug and visually the pattern morphs as well. I love that the edges remain curvy, playing into the pattern even more.

At Design Miami 2012, a group of carpenters presented Eiffel Tower Lamp and Taj Mahal Table. In these creative designs, the marvel of engineering’s been bent over to pour some light on the desk and on the other side, creativity in home furnishings took the designers to flip the Taj Mahal upside down. Both structures are made of patinated bronze. The polished bronze lampshade is obviously adding uniqueness to the Eiffel Tower Lamp and Taj Mahal Table

Pedro Sousa‘s Causeway storage cabinet had a starting point back in his student days, specifically a year spent in Dublin.
Inspired by rock formations, this sideboard uses a combination of solid wood, plywood and wood veneer to create a 3D effect on its surface. Available in three colors in addition to natural wood in a series of eight pieces each. Get ‘em while they’re hot

Although not a new design, I just discovered it so it’s new to me! Japanese company BCXSY’s Seesaw bookshelf is a pretty neat concept. I bet you could put books you’ve read on one end and ones you’ haven’t read yet on the other. Which side would be heavier for you?

Arik Levy‘s new FOLD lighting collection for Vibia looks like three-dimensional cubes for your wall. In fact, you could probably reproduce the old school video game Q*bert on your wall.

From the website:
Channel the Greek god Hermes.
These cool pant clips comfortably and swiftly peg legs.
The fluorescent PVC glows in the dark, providing visibility for night riding.
Some of our rave-bound customers have been strapping them onto their arms for nightclub accessories.
The strips are lined with a thin material that rolls in a snap, over and over again.
Bicycling rules in Amsterdam.
And no one knows this better than mere mortal Gijs Bakker, who created these fab and functional clips for ENO to recall the winged sandals of the legendary messenger and traveler.
Set of two: $20.

Watson on his work: Remember when you were scolded for not using a coaster? Worry no more…. New designs include the intriguing ‘Linger a Little Longer’ Table and Benches, a deceptively understated design with a dynamic twist. Making entertaining that bit more fun (while also commenting on how ‘precious’ we can become about the functionality of furniture, or how oblivious we can be to every effect we have on our environment) the thermochromic finish of the table and benches responds to the heat of any plate, mug or serving dish – or body part – placed on it, to leave an ephemeral ‘watermark.’ Link.
