A Dive into the Deep Sea with a Designer!

As some of you may be feeling the summer heat, I have just been dying to go on a Tropical vacation! The thought of swimming in the Caribbean would be so amazing right about now. So, to hold myself over until I get the chance I have been inspired and reminded of the deep tropical sea through these fun and creative accessories. I would love to have any of these lying around the house just to remind me of that ocean serenity that I have been longing for. I hope you enjoy!

Architectural Minerals

This piece from Architectural minerals could not be more suggestive of the deep sea coral reef, I just love the uniqueness that comes along with it, like the sand , each piece is created custom and different from the rest. This is such a work of art made by Mother Nature and presented in a contemporary house hold setting. This would be perfect placed on any coffee table to either strike up conversation or simply hold ones attention on its intricate detail and colors.

QisDesign

When I came across this lighting fixture from QisDesign I could not have been more inspired, the way in which the pink, purple and red lights are combine together gives of a real mysterious feel similar to that of the deep unknown ocean. Its light, colors and forms to me could not be more resemblant to that of a jelly fish, I just love everything about this fixture it is such an enchanting way to bring light into the space. I can just imagine how they would look placed in a room at night you would feel as if you were snorkeling in the deep sea surrounded by jelly fish!

Asian Art Imports

This lighting fixture from Asian Art Imports is just so fun to me! With a lighter and less dramatic affect I am instantly reminded of little sea urchin creatures.

A picture says a thousand words and in this case it could not be truer, this vase is just so marvelous! When created, the vases were inspired by cellular pattering. They are morphed into forms with an intergalactic quality and with the overlaying of colors on a clear core. They are then fused together in a carefully laid out arrangement. I find this process just so fascinating sometimes I wonder how people are able to create such unique pieces. Need I say more?

Another piece made by using this layering technique is this vessel; it reminds me so much of the tentacles of an octopus. The materials used are folded together; they are made of a solid color and are stretched, cut, fused, shaped and blown out…what a process! Each cane contains up to 30 different colors layers into paper thin strata. This is such an intricate and interesting piece.

Precious Pieces

This architectural screen from Precious Pieces reminds me so much of being underwater caught in a Forrest of sea weed! I could definitely see this being used in any beach house as a separation of space.

Weitzner

This transparent fabric from Weitzner is so similar to fisherman’s netting. I would love to use this on any sort of pillow or drapery layered over another fabric; it would be such a great way to add depth to a space while still giving off a light and airy feel, perfect for any beach setting.

I hope that you have been inspired by these amazing finds under the sea! Please let me know your thoughts on your favorites you can contact me here.

Remember as shown by these pieces, it’s all in the details when it comes to design…
