Life is Too Short To Be Dull
Does the idea of a Louis XVI bespoke chair with gold leaf and graffiti or a hand painted barbed wire bed appeal to your aesthetic? Joy and Janet at the mogg blogg reminded me about the London furniture line Jimmie Martin. Created by the design duo of Jimmie Karlsson and Martin Nihlmar, I find their work incredible. It is sexy, decadent, edgy, fun, perverse, punk, urban, and hip. They now have two showrooms in the U.S. Although priced in the thousands, each piece makes such a statement. Any one of these would totally define a room. I love the mix of traditional and modern. You must visit the website, if only for inspiration. Think what you could do with that inherited furniture or garage sale find that just doesn't fit your style.
