Rug Me Baby!!!!!

Nudie Jeans introduces a new limited edition rug made from their old and worn out denim. The jeans were first cut down to serrated strips and sewn together and rolled up on spools. The strips were then woven together by hand on a manual shuttle loom and the weft was made from the same indigo dyed thread they use in their jeans.

 

Baccarat… The legend continues!!!!

Without a doubt, one of the talking points of the upcoming Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan will be Maison Baccarat’s new lighting series. The legendary House which commissioned some of the most prominent names from the contemporary design world to revisit existing historical pieces or develop new ones, has resulted in some truly spectacular creations.

Modern Man and Justin Bower!!!

Based out of Los Angeles, California, Justin Bower is an artist who creates large-scale oil paintings that look as if they were digital pieces. Bower pushes his portraits into abstraction as he explores “modern man’s immersive connectivity to technology and obsession with altering their physical image” by utilizing digitized, dissected, and fragmented effects in his work.

 

Urban Marc Trujillo….

The state of commercialism and stagnancy of location in America has become so common that it is almost a blind item to us—but Marc Trujillo peels back the crust of the droll and the unseen with his new painted series of landscapes, all of them “non-destinations” that could easily exist everywhere and nowhere. Within each painting is a complex, realistic beauty—but there is also a sense of overall disconnection, a stock and complacent dread of the norm.

 

Bulgari… Around the world!

When it comes to timeless elegance, exquisite design and strong Italian heritage, one name springs to mind: legendary Italian jeweller and luxury powerhouse BVLGARI. Having long established a name as the go-to house for superbly fine creations, the brand has successfully managed to convey the quintessence of its refined heritage to the luxury hospitality sector. BVLGARI Hotels & Resorts is a collection of highly exclusive properties located right in the heart of the most prestigious areas in some of the major cosmopolitan destinations around the world.

Flesh-For-Cash!!!

 Zhang Haiying is a remarkable painter originally hailing from Shouguang, Shandong Province, China who creates oil on canvas paintings based  of raids conducted on brothels all over China. Haiying’s technique of softly and loosely rendering his female subjects is well juxtaposed against the heavy imagery of the thematic focus in his work.
