Tea House by A1 Architects-Prague

All pics Via archdaily.com
Adorable teahouse by A1 Architects. This 3,75 sqm structure was designed as an escape space from day-to-day hectic moments, hanging out with a couple of friends sharing ideas and a cup of tea, surrounded by cherry blossoms and apple trees. A place where time passed at it's own pace. Hmmm...that sounds so divine!!! This might be a great idea for an adult version of a treehouse! Read and see more here.

My Latest Fling With Modern Chinese Pieces

I am currently pretty swamped with work, that's why I am feeling so bad for not posting things as often as I would like to. Lately, I have a fling with Chinese style furniture with modern twist, or vice versa. Chinese design has been influencing western furniture style since the era or Chippendale or even before that. Even in Versailles you could find some pieces with Chinoisserie detailings to it. Here are some of my favs I found from http://www.1stdibs.com/ LOOVEEEE this side, a good site for window shopping or treasure hunting. They also have a new section for antique jewelries!

Purse Holder Rolls Royce 200CX

NOTCOT: Rolls Royce 200CX Auto Adujsting Purse Rack from Jean Aw on Vimeo.

I never post anything about car, or even interested in it! But this one is different! Because: 1. It came with a cool automatic purse holder! 2. It is a Rolls Royce, it is a classic. 3. It came with other cool bells and whistles features which I don't really care about but yeah sure, it is pretty neat anyway HA! Well actually, I only genuinely care about reason numero uno! I know, I know how typical!! But honestly this is a very wicked feature, it has a sensor to adjust with the purse's size when the purse touched the ledge. See it in action in vimeo above.
