i got an email about helen amy murray last night- she exhibited her stunning work with textiles at 100% design last week. i'm loving her work with leather and satin rosettes. very angela, but it looks gorgeous on furniture. if the roses are too girly for you she has a number of textile patterns that are modern but without the frill. click here for more information [thanks, terry!]

I am so glad you have observed Helen Amy's work! She developed a NEW innovative textile technique and applies it in such a beautiful and unique signature expression. In my mind, this is very admirable and hard to achieve in the world of design. Her work looks stunning in the photos, but seeing/touching it in person is a different story. I had the pleasure of speaking to her at 100% in 2002 (or 03?), I was blown away by the inticacy and creativity and tried to get her to explain how she achieved these results?!! Needless to say, she was very tight-lipped about it. And rightfully so, she has invented this technique and made it her own, literally. Anyway, she and her pieces have been on my mind since, and I am so glad to get an update! I love the blog, it's my daily lunchtime treat... Thank you!

Cool chair. Had to take a closer look. Almost like PR's Angela's yoyos only backwards. :-)

I know this is incredibly Grinchy of me, and it certainly is a beautiful surface, but gosh, it must be hell to clean! Is it only me, or do others have this mundane thought spring to mind when they gaze upon the latest gorgeously intricate household object? It seems to me that an important aspect designing things for daily life must be ease of use, and this includes how tricky something is to clean. Ok, my rant is over. Thanks for your inspiring site.
