Furniture Design: Table inspired by the Tango dance by Ivan Woods for Schiavello

What a nice table design! This table is inspired by the Tango dance and designed by Australian designer Ivan Woods for Schiavello. It looks like it’s doing a dance – the tango to be exact. The Tango tables are made such that you can nest them together to create layers or you can use them individually.

FASHION: Handcrafted leather goods by AgnesKovacs

A few pieces caught my eye this week, like this beautiful handcrafted leather goods collection from AGNESKOVACS. The LIÉ collection is a multicultural journey from Europe to Asia, where the Scandinavian minimalism, the French elegance, the Italian premium leather and the Japanese precision meet in harmonious unity. LIÉ was created based on a design idea of the unification of opposing forces. It combines the contemporary elegance with fine details, exciting geometric lines and functional twists. Aren't they beautiful to see?
