Yesterday, I was out looking for used furniture for my new apartment.
I stumbled upon a nice and quiet underpass with some very cute illustrations.
I went to Eco-land, a recycle shop near Musashi-koyama Station.
Found some chairs for my dining room!
The guitar I sold to them was on sale too!
I am devoting this post to Eco-land as I am very thankful for the work they are doing. I found Eco-land’s website while looking for people who could help me get rid of my unwanted furniture and electronic appliances in Tokyo. Eco-land collects unwanted items, repairs and resells them. When your item sells, they will give you half of the profit or you can choose to donate it to charity. They also have 2 recycle shops where you can buy used furniture and appliances at very affordable prices. I met some of the staff and they are all young enthusiasts who care for the environment. I am inspired by them to find some nice recycled furniture for my new apartment.

Yesterday I was out visiting Interior/zakka stores in Omote sando and Aoyama. The pictures above were taken in front of Bazar et garde-manger, a very interesting lifestyle store by H.P. DECO. They carry a unique selection of handmade objects & accessories, art, fabrics, kitchenware, vintage furniture…etc. mainly from France and parts of Europe. It’s been a long time since I saw something that made my heart skip a beat and the handmade broaches by Lyndie Dourthe really took my breath away! I would probably go back just to admire the intricacy of the handmade pieces again.

These are some of the products I’ve designed for our client Titicaca. As you can see, the theme for this project was Lucha Libre. They wanted a series of interior products such as coasters, cushions, bedroom slippers…etc with the same motif. The beads coasters were handmade in India and I really like the way they turned out. My personal favorite!!
These items are on sale at selected Titicaca stores now. Please do check them out if you are in Japan!

We are having a photo shoot for our summer catalogue at Hudson Studio tomorrow. This summer, our company is launching some outdoor themed products and that is the reason why we have chosen this studio as it has a decent garden even during winter. Shootings starts really early tomorrow so I have to head to bed soon! Keeping my fingers crossed for good weather tomorrow!
I’m off to Milan tomorrow! Will be attending the Macef Milano International Home Show and doing market research on the interior trends in Italy. Not the best time to visit but I’m quite excited as it’s my first time in Italy. Hope I’ll survive the cold! Will try to update whenever I’ve a chance to. Ciao, Ci vediamo!
