Faux-sposable Housewares Part II

Friday, April 24th, 2009

I’m taking a break from Lost in ffffound this week to share a few more items I found like the glass water bottles from earlier this week. These are some of my favorites: ceramic milk carton and paper bag vases, porcelain plastic cups, french fry bags, hot dog wrappers and lastly ceramic paper cups! They have such lovely design and an irreverence that’s just too hard to resist!

Coin Banks

My mother-in-law, Marilyn, was looking for a piggy bank for my nephew. I was curious to see what was out there and was pleasantly surprised to find some pretty adorable offerings. I’m pretty sure my favorite is the little elephant from Elegant Baby. The proportions are just perfect and I love the big ears and little nose!

Oh Deer!

My whole family thinks I’ve gone mad but for some reason I’ve become obsessed with this trend of paper and ceramic deer busts and antlers. I’m not one for hunting or taxidermy but I see the beauty in the silhouettes of these sweet animals and how striking one of these could be in a room. Below are a few of my favorites. So what do you think? Are faux deer busts all the rage or crazy town?

I’ve seen this fad start to creep it’s way into all sorts of mediums. Check out this antler coat rack from Velocity,  deer antler socket covers by Nendo seen via On Paper Wings and this iPhone/iPod Touch wallpaper from Poolga.
