the lost art of the unicorn- frederique morrel

29 Nov

and  so here we are: waitrose has their ad out, littlewoods has their tat out, and marks and sparks has joined in with their own shit x-version: it must be christmas soon.

lookingfornicethings has been travelling and apologises for the lack of recent posts. but what better way to shed your autumnal skin and get into the merry mood than with french artist duo frederique morrel’s tapestry-covered, wintery taxidermy-like pieces.

a fantasy wonderland of knitted and patchworked awesomeness at its gayest, most festive self. the artifacts are on show at london’s stephanie hoppen gallery until dec. 7. go on, get merry.



tea party- mellor ware

22 Aug

cute little bone china tea sets from uk-based designer mellor ware: illustrated with decals of watercoulours from lianne mellor, they will make the delights of any tea-lover anywhere.

we call it a party.

tropicalia – orlanda broom

18 Aug

love the colour explosions of london-based artist orlanda broom’s tropical landscapes: a romantic cacophony of wild colours and fecund shapes finished in a glasslike texture.

on show until the end of the month at london’s stephanie hoppen gallery

la selva- carnovsky

16 Aug

dreaming of getting lost in these amazing wallpapers and prints by italy-based design duo carnovsky.

the intricate patterns reveal further depths depending on the colour prism under which you scrutinise- a bit of rgb detective work, and the perfect backdrop for a g&t and a chat.

a good excuse to go night-life hunting in shoreditch, if you ever needed one.

on show until september 21st at jaguarshoes.

secret london gardens

7 Jun

this is the weekend to get lost in the myriad beautiful secret gardens of london with open squares. a 7.5 pounds ticket buys you access into dalston’s eastern curve, chelsea’s physics garden, the geffrye museum, or more surprisingly, a peek into the courtyard of her majesty’s wormwood scrubs prison.

a good excuse to get out and play

fresh and wild – plates

16 May

spied on this beautiful new bone china bird-motif plate from anthropologie in g’s phone last night, and the blossoms stoneware serving platter below: with their fresh, springy feel they make my heart all aflutter.

now i just need a secluded spot with a  sweeping willow perching over a creek and a little picnic blanket. are you in?

for bibliophiles

28 Apr

oh to be breaking fast on this table under this tree.
