These magical sea creatures are created by Vasili Lights, an Amsterdam-based design studio co-founded by Vasili Popov and Lidiya Koloyarskaya. Since 2015 these two architects have channeled their creativity into interior design objects. Inspired by the Nordic seaside and the oceans’ many bioluminescent creatures, they create paper craft lampshades in the shape of aquatic animals. Each lamp is a reflection of their architectural background and is designed with an eye for detail. Inspired by the roaring seas and its many bioluminescent creatures, the lampshades come in five variations: the turtle, the dolphin, the fish, the octopus, and the jellyfish. The lamps come in different colors and you can even pick between two different types. The “Lampshade” is made with large cut-outs that show the bulb inside, and the “Lantern” has small perforations that create a soft glow. Assembly is easy, you can even put it together with your children! And the best part: the sturdy paper, small-scale production, and flat-pack design make the lampshades a sustainable choice, so actual marine animals are a little safer from plastic waste. Vasili now offers free world wide shipping (limited offer) so go over to their website and take a look!
I love Scandinavian brand ferm LIVING, especially their kids department. Their latest collection is filled with fun items that look good in every kids (play) room. The kids collection is available from Alex and Alexa, Smallable and 2Modern. I’m loving that Pineapple rug (available in two sizes, here and here). The house storage wall is available here. And the dollhouse here and here.
The Kutikai children’s furniture brand is a partnership between two architect mothers. Originating from Poland, Marysia and Dorota met during their studies in Cracow. A few children later, filled with inspiration, they designed their range of simple and inventive furniture, which keeps the environment in mind. Kutikai’s children’s furniture is multifunctional – A bed isn’t just a place to sleep, but a cabin for children to hide away in. Each furniture piece is responsible, inventive and made with love. You can shop for Kukitai at stylish kids store Smallable.
