The 'Tropicalia' chair by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso.
Seen in this month's Vogue Living (Australia).

I'm a tiny bit reminded of the only alternative I can afford, 
namely IKEA's Färgglad children's chair 
(these appear to have been recalled in some countries 
but no one's having mine back, thank you very much):

Canvas 'Birkin' inspired shopping bags
(the ultra-realistic image is screenprinted on a canvas bag):
as bag snob notes, surely in breach of some law?

Edit (3/5/2011): Hermes are suing another company 'inspired' by the Birkin
(Thursday Friday's US$35 bag).

Cat stuff

Everyone gives me cat stuff for Xmas, birthdays, etc. 
My dirty little secret is that I don't really want cat 'stuff'
(except, perhaps, a cat gravestone).
I... like... cats.

You can keep the crazy cat lady game;
the cat USB hub;
the cat key;
umbilical cat tattoos.
 I don't even really like books about cats
(for which I blame a tearful session with Jennie).

 I do have a soft spot for vintage Xmas decorations.
And the cat bird house is pretty funny.
And maybe I'll allow cat chicken costumes.

In fact, I'm prepared to make some exceptions for things for cats: 

 Cat tank (via boing boing)

 Fire-engine cat play-house (via foolish gadgets)

The Loyal Luxe Chalet for Cats (via modern cat)

And check out the addictive and annoying Chat Noir game.
