Want This Leg Splint

Posted in Interior Accessories on November 11, 2008 by thewantblog

Charles & Ray Eames designed the Leg Splint for the U.S. Navy in 1942. By the end of the war over 150,000 were produced. DWR LTD got their hands on one from what looks like the first production run, and are offering it up for bid today 12 noon. If you are in any way interested in modern design and it’s history, this splint is or should be on the top of your want list. There is only one available, so get on it!

Want This Bed Set

Posted in Furniture, Interior Accessories on October 25, 2008 by thewantblog

I love the concept Variegated. They are small company that is re-purposing old men’s suit fabrics into bed sets. The set include a bed cover, duvet, and a pair of pillow cases. Since they are made of old suit fabrics, no two sets are ever the same, giving you a unique set. This would be a great compliment to Nest Bed Linens offered at DWR. The Veriegated collection appears to be a nod to some of the fabrics Paul Smith has been creating for a while now, and are often used on large upholstered goods like a piece we carry called the Bottoni Sofa. Variegated is currently offering their sets through West & Green in Brooklyn NY.
