I don't really do baggy.  Or slouchy.  Much preferring sharp lines and angles … or so I thought.  This Strips sofa designed by Cini Boeri in 1972 for Arflex has taken me by surprise.   Doesn't it look comfy?   Doesn't it make you want to run up to it and jump on it, snuggle up on it?  And those giant cushions are just screaming 'pillow flight'.  The perfect sofa to bring out the big kid in me!

I recently stumbled upon these images and immediately had to find out more about this stunning villa in São Paulo designed by architect Marcio Koganclick.  All. That. Texture.  And the interior of the property is equally stunning ... click here to see more.  And when can I move in?

Edit #1

EDIT : a place for objects that have caught my eye, ideas I'd like to explore, inspiration I'd like to capture …

I'm quite taken with this over-scaled print by Laure Joilet entitled Saint-Jean
The Botan vase by Kristina Stark is definitely on my wish list … the shape is so intriguing
The modern quilting technique used in the Grid cushion by Anderson & Voll for Muuto 
The idea of bunching up these garland lights from Granit to form an eye-catching display
The black candle holder with its loop handle by French design house ENO
I really want to get my hands on a cats cradle, or two (ph. Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia, January 1999)
