Tord Boontje

I had some time to kill yesterday, so i decided to stop into La Terra, in Hampden. Its something i had been meaning to do for a while after hearing good things about the shop from friends. And as soon as i walked in it was quite obvious why! It was such a cute store with tons of things that would have looked great in my apartment. Vintage inspired metalwork, beautiful glassware, soaps, candles, cards, purses, jewelry.... I picked up a few Christmas presents, and there was no way i could pass up a Tord Boontje paper "midsummer light". Its something I have wanted for soooo long, so when i saw that they were 50% percent off, i knew now was the time to buy one. Unfortunately, they didn't have any plain white ones left, but i love what i got!

If your not familiar with Tords work, i highly recommend you take a look at his website. He is very talented, and does work that is right up my ally. Target had him do several pieces for them over the last holiday season. I love that such a talented artist and designers work is accessible to the mass' through a store like target. The majority of his work is based on organic images, from flowers to raindeer (at christmas), and much of it is done using positive/negative space to enhance his designs. Its ALL beautiful.

Also, check this out on Amazon!
