Foam with The Girls

Last wednesday evening we joined Penny and Celia to the opening the exhibition of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin at Foam. The exhibition is called Pretty much Everything, a title well chosen. Because the museum is filled top to bottom with what seems like all the images this creative photography couple ever made. I especially like almost their over-the-top and coulourfull images. And they suit Penny and Celia, another coulourfull, ballsy, funny and frightfullly creative duo who just started their own company, The Girls (tm) just perfectly.

a factory full of furniture

On my hunt for some furniture for a project, I paid Fabrieknl a visit, in the south of the Netherlands. It's been a while since I last went there, but it was worth the trip again. I bought my couches for my own home here.
The old shoe factory is big (5000 square metres) and packed with the most beautiful vintage furniture. Some parts of the factory are set up as tastfully decorated living rooms or dining rooms, so you can get a feel how the furniture will look in your own house. The rest of the factory leaves room for your own imagination.
