Yellow, red, orange, or fruit stripe, it doesn’t matter to me. These cushions designed by Scholten & Baijings would suit me in any combination. Swoooooon!
April 11th, 2011 · Comments Off on how to raise and train a dachshund.
How to Raise and Train a Dachshund reminds me of this book my father gave me called How to Raise a Dog in the City. With no copyright info in front of me, I’d have to say both books are circa 1960s and serve as high-brow precursors to the Dachshunds for Dummies, et al., series we purchased when we became the proud owners of a rambunctious little dachshund-schanuzer named Dollar. We thought we were getting a dachshund, but in hindsight, our hybrid “designer” pup is truly better than a pure bred, as these photos can attest, from grooming to coddling to outright stubbornness dachshunds are quite a handful!

T-Magazine‘s Spring Design Issue just hit newsstands this weekend, and my jaw dropped when I saw the Studio Job Bavaria cabinet in a spread about a family home in the Georgia countryside. I saw the cabinet at last year’s Moss party during ICFF and was obsessed with it then but wondered how it would work in someone’s home. Now I know: Add a smattering of Case Study Fiber-Glass Chairs from Modernica, an enormous country style dining table, and a Droog chandelier, and the piece manages to unite the space.

Olgoj Chorchoj‘s Princess vanity is absolutely perfect — for me. What’s not to love about a walnut dressing table with a vanity mirror (yes, it lights up) that tucks away discreetly when it’s not being use? For being such a minimal piece, the Princess has plenty of storage, with a flush-front drawer and four recessed compartments to hold makeup, jewelry, what have you in the tabletop.
