The basket-like structures of the seating inspired the Vimini name, which is Italian for ‘wicker’, as well as rhyming with Bimini, an island that Urquiola enjoys. The pieces feature wooden frames with woven wicker basket-like seats that hold cushions for additional comfort. The collection includes sofas, dining chairs, and side tables.

Rectangular powder coated aluminum boxes hold Trace&#8217;s signature tube structure and netting, which form the planter&#8217;s trellis, making it a natural extension of the collection.
Each planter is fully welded aluminum ready for plants to go right into the planter or to hold pots inside. Stainless steel mesh rises from the bottom to support most any climbing plant. Once it’s planted, Trace can be used as a space divider or to frame a patio’s edge. The Trace Planters come in two widths and are available in four colors – Deep Ocean, Headland, Surfmist, and Nightsky.

The series, designed for <a href="http://www.talentisrl.com/?lang=en"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Talenti</a>, references that same relaxing countryside vibe but with a contemporary spin.
The pieces in the collection combine materials like aluminum and plastic with the more traditional rope with the aim to find a place in the user’s memories, as if it had always been there. The Cottage Collection includes a Living Armchair, Lounge Armchair, Pour, Sofa, Sunbed, Side Table, and two Coffee Tables, available in a variety of finishes and fabrics.

Outdoor Furniture with Garment-Like Seams by Adam Cornish for Tait

While the pieces are designed for the outdoors, they&#8217;d work equally well inside the home as well.
The Seam chairs are made in such a way that’s not too different from tailoring a piece of clothing, with its “seam” detail making up the spine. Working with sheet metal, the chairs are formed by cutting, folding, and joining the material, much like you would a piece of fabric, bringing a fresh approach to Tait’s line which includes their signature wire chairs. Seam includes a dining chair, stacking chair, bar stool, dining table, café table, and bar table, all available in a palette of rich colors that reference Australia’s coastlines, terrains, and flora. Besides being a distinct design detail, the opening below the seam

Check Out 15 Stunning Tile Design Ideas Just In Time for National Tile Day

National Tile Day is February 23. And we can thank the largest stone and tile show in North America, Coverings, for bringing it back. “National Tile Day is rooted in a desire to celebrate the many great benefits tile has to offer as a material,” explains Alena Capra, industry ambassador for Coverings. “We’re encouraging the architecture and design community to get inspired by tile.” Tile is a great choice when you’re looking for something durable and unique. Nowadays it can even look like hardwood flooring, complete with the grooves and textures, but offers a lower maintenance surface that doesn’t need refinishing. We’ve come a long way from the basic white 16″ squares of the past. Here are 15 tile design ideas to inspire you:

Tait Lets You Build a Modern Wall of Plants with GardenWall

The collection of lightweight aluminum planters are outfitted with laser cut designs around the sides that allow the plants to grow through, whether it&#8217;s just one planter alone, a tall column, or a wall of them. Reid&#8217;s new design, <a href="https://madebytait.com.au/product/limited-edition-gardenwall-terrain/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Terrain</a>, incorporates her love of landscape topographies and an interest in the work of Roberto Burle Marx, a late Brazilian landscape architect.
Over the years, Marx’ landscape design plans have become works of art and his approach continues to inspire Reid’s fondness for patterns of the earth you’d see from looking down from above. Those topographical patterns became the basis for the laser cut patterns on the 10th anniversary edition, which is limited to just 100 planters.
