Cool products alert- Pantone phenomenal!

This post was very much inspired by my recent encounter of the Pantone folding chairs. I have seen them used in so many decor in a lot of interior magazines lately.



'Pantone Folding Chairs'

As if seeing these Pantone folding chairs everywhere are not enough, I saw the Pantone storage boxes at Achica a few days ago.



'Pantone Boxes'

So, I figured there must be more Pantone products around so I did some research. I thought I might find a few more office accessories or stationeries but lo and behold, I found so much more and it's so exciting. I love wonderful discoveries like these and if you know me well enough, I love anything quirky and things with a twist. Below are some of my finds.

'Pantone Wallstore'



'Pantone Bike'


'Pantone Espresso Set'

'Pantone Mugs'

'Pantone Luggage Tag'

'Pantone Passport Holder'

'Pantone Big Wallet'

'Pantone Coin Purse'

'Pantone Card Holder'

'Pantone Notebook'

'Pantone Toothbrush Set'


'Pantone Bathroom Accessories'

'Pantone Kitchen Scale'

'Pantone Keyring Range'

'Pantone Contact Lens Case'

While my list of Pantone products is incomplete, it covers most of the Pantone products I found online.  Personally, I love the Pantone storage boxes, the Pantone Bikes, the Pantone magazine holders, the Pantone espresso sets and the Pantone notebooks. All the Pantone inspired products are not only clever and colorful but fun as well. Do you have a favorite Pantone product?

And while I was trying to wrap up this post, I stumbled upon a surprise. There is even a Pantone themed hotel which I am not unaware of, so check this out!






Are you surprised? Well, I am. Previously, I thought all Pantone products are absolutely creative and innovative but the Pantone Hotel takes the cake. Have any of you been there? If so, what are your experience like?

Cool designer alert- Victoria Hagan!

I am constantly looking for different designers to feature in this blog because each designer has his/her own distinct design styles and aesthetics. And I just love getting my inspiration from all of them, combine them and make it my own and also to share their beautiful work with all my wonderful readers.

Today, I am featuring the very talented Victoria Hagan, an award-winning designer. She was named 'Furniture Designer Of The Year' by Elle Decor in 2006 and Architectural Digest's 'Top 100'. The New York Times described her work as "the most cerebral, the one bound to be influential" and her work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, W, Town & Country,  Harper's Bazaar, Traditional Home, In Style and Interior Design.  Her design philosophy features a refined use of materials, sophisticated colors and strong silhouettes. Now, let's take a look at some of her amazing work below.

Although her design style are mostly neutrals, Victorian Hagan managed to inject style, warmth and elegance through incorporating classic furniture, interesting silhouettes and using materials derived from wood, creating timeless and beautiful interiors.
