Brocadehome.com made a comeback

Posted by editor On April - 17 - 2009

Brocadehome.com has made a very stunning entry to the furniture market by introducing a romantic European flare furniture line in the mid-price range. This company happen to be a child company of Restoration Hardware, but since its opening in 2008 has been strugle with several negative customer feed-backs perhaps because of its big summer sale event that cause this company to shut down for several months and displaying its website as follow:


too bad it doesn’t do any customer support so people who ordered at that time has been charged and can’t get any support to what’s going on with their order lots of complaints all over the web regarding this company you can find it here and on pissed customer’s site.
Perhaps it’s quite a challenge to establish a new furniture line during the first few years especially in the economy like this – however I am glad that they made a come back and this time they have a store in NY
here’s their address:
brocade home soho
59 greene st (between spring + broome)
open daily
so should there be any further customer issue at least you can be re-assured to be getting the support and customer service you need because you can just call the store =)

I personally intrigue by their product and perhaps will give it a try in the near future. Here’re samples of their product – got it from bh store catalog, very lovely:

How is living in a garbage truck sounds to you?

Posted by editor On July - 29 - 2008

Interior can do absolutely anything, including converting a garbage truck into a suitable living space. It will sound really bad to have to live in a garbage truck, won’t you agree? But wait till you see these pictures, then you’d say it isn’t so bad after all.

I found all of these pictures from itsjustabitoffun.com’s blog, it really is a fun discovery so I decided to share it here in femtalks.

Years back before the first all glass underwater restaurant named Ithaa established in Maldives, people already think about underwater / undersea structure for a restaurant establishment. The ‘Red Sea Star’ restaurant located in Eliat Israel was built in 1998. The interior encorporates really nice underwater detail design elements created by ayala serfaty from Aqua Creation.

The Red Sea Star enables you to “sense the sea” through a “dry diving experience” and to discover the magnificent and exciting underwater world of the Red Sea. A breathtaking view of hundreds of various tropical sea creatures in the colorful coral garden is seen through 62 panoramic amorphous windows surrounding the observatory, located five meters below the sea level.

The Red Sea Star is probably the only night-observatory in the world. Our guests enjoy the rare sight of the aquatic kingdom at night, when the underwater garden is softly lit, without disturbing the natural inhabitants.

The Red Sea Star is a “green” project. Our marine life experts and skilled divers have been working for years to save, reconstruct, preserve and nurture the coral reef surrounding the project.

This gorgeous underwater shot is the Red Sea Star Restaurant. It looks out in to the coral reef in the tropical resort city of Eilat, Israel. The reef-restaurant combination was actually established by the restaurant management. To get the reef started, they built an iron meshwork and translated many species of broken coral colonies to it. What an awesome place to go and have dinner when you just happen to be traveling through Isreal for the week.

The unique ABSOLUT ICEBAR COPENHAGEN in central Copenhagen celebrates its fi rst anniversary
in April. To mark the occasion, it has undergone an artistic transformation with about 40 tonnes of freshice from Northern Sweden.

Since its launch in April 2007, ABSOLUT ICEBAR COPENHAGEN has established itself as one of the
absolutely most unique bar experiences in Copenhagen. The magical ice universe has attracted thousands of enthusiastic Danish and international guests, all of whom have had the opportunity to enjoy ice- cold vodka drinks in a marvellous setting that is unparalleled in Denmark.

Based on the theme, “Water Drops”, the Swedish artists, Anders Eriksson and Anders Rönnlund have created a space with a powerful interplay between light and dark. A number of evocative lighting effects in cool green and blue tones create an intimate experience of being surrounded by ice. One of the new elements is an ice sculpture that is realistically formed like a shower cabinet which guests can enter, thereby sparking associations to the coldest shower imaginable.

Glass Pendant Bubble Candle Holder – Mothology

Posted by editor On May - 7 - 2008

hanging glass globeAnyone looking to add more romance to their garden or home? I found this nice hanging glass pendant bubble in mothology.com It’s a very nice way to hang your candle, because it can give the impression of floating candles in space (so you’ll have a romantic dinner just like that in harry potter’s feast (hogwarts great hall)– some might think it’s scary but I always think it’s romantic and dreamy) or perhaps one of that moment like Sherman in Nutty Professor II: The Klumps in where he uses fireflies to spell out his marriage proposal to Denise, but since you can’t find fireflies that easily at a convenient time perhaps this bubble will do just the right romance for your romantic patio dinner =)

Ether by Euroface cascading glass bubble chandelier

ether chandelier by eurofase

My husband and I were having dinner at ascona pizza in Gale Ranch Plaza, San Ramon. I was too full to go back directly to the car, so I suggested to walk around the Plaza, and we discover this beautiful cascading glass chandelier at the gale ranch dental group family dental. It’s so pretty and whimsical, a perfect item to sit in the house, I thought. I am so up for it that I went to google it up and found out ether by euroface from lumens.com that it priced for $11,000++ gosh why modern design always have to come at a cost SO GOOD? hehe… To my disappointment this item can just be on that “wish-list” we all know about.

No disappointment here, to creative people out there here’s siska’s solution, she did the creative DIY bubble chandelier project, it turned out very nice *see the picture here*
