Hmm…so, supposedly inspired by deep sea dwelling creatures (you know, those kind that lure prey with a dangling light over their head), Gilding has to say, she sees it, but…honestly, it looks more like a scorpion. In any case, the Light Up comes from the Netherlandic design house ontwerpers. Anyhoo, there’s not much to say on the chair, specs can be seen here, but it is a neat aesthetic anyway. Though the chair touts being ergonomic, Gilding is more specifically drawn to the enormous light hanging above the recliner. Striking, isn’t it.
These pieces are so nicely earthy and organic. From Studio Robert Stadler, the Tephra Formations project derives its name from the Greek word tephra, meaning “ash”, and connotates a sense of deadly elegance, dainty and voluminous, crushing and airy. Given to the wild nature of volcanos, Tephra can be made in all sizes and shapes to mimick this unpredictable nature.
Tephra is upholstered in black leather with tufted details, much like that of a Chesterfield sofa, lending a feeling of proper elegance to a form that is otherwise organic and unpredictable. [Via Yanko Design]
Gilding wants an open field full of abandoned and rusted vintage cars in her hometown backyard!
Russian photographer and bloger, Ilya Varlamov, used clever lighting to capture these eerie photographs of abandoned vintage cars rusting away in this known field in Russia.
Home is where the horror is. At least for writer-director Oren Peli. Photographed at his home in a seven-day marathon sprint in 2006 with a crew of three that included Peli’s then girlfriend and his bestfriend, Paranormal Activity is slated to be the scariest, nightmare inducing movie of all time.
In honor of Banned Books Week, these are the books Gilding never had as a child, but wished she did.

Time to revel in the celebration of relaxing from the fruits of labor. Now time to go squander all that hard earned money on some frivolous bit of tourism driven enterprise.
