If like me you use the infamous Ikea blue bags for everything, you'll be happy to hear that there is an even better option. Danish brand Herman Cph has redesigned the tote, in a limited edition version, with gorgeous Kvadrat fabric and full grain leather handles. 

It is available for a limited time only, so order quickly here. Bear in mind, it is only £80 more than the £0.40 Ikea version.

{Interiors} 9 cool throw pillows for your sofa | Mix'em up
VIA My scandinavian Home
With the new year, I am on the hunt for some accessories for my sofa. So I thought that I would design a bunch of them on my Society6 shop. I then got a bit sidetracked and started getting lost in it's giant maze. There are so many cool designs, it is worth mixing up pattern, and scale.
I might get some for the kids' bedroom also.

So here is my selection for you to enjoy.

{Design} Lost in sofa by Daisuke Motogi Architecture


{Design} Lost in sofa by Daisuke Motogi Architecture - Rue du chat qui peche

Things always get lost in sofas. Because they fall out of your pockets, or just because they have somehow fallen into the cracks of your sofa. Sometimes they resurface and sometimes they are never to be found again.
Tokyo-based architect Daisuke Motogi Architecture emphasised this trait of a sofa in this playful utility armchair design. The multitude of cracks are purposefully used for storage, items can be shelved between cushions.
