CATS (& other musings)

Sep 7, 2014

Pets and babies have been used since the inception of print media as vehicles to soften images and render individuals more relatable. Daisy Woodward who writes one of my favorite monthly online columns The Pets (profiling famous people and their equally famous pets ) for Another magazine  explains this phenomena as such: “Add a child or animal into a shot and the reaction will transform from ‘so-what’ to swoon”.

In our celebrity drenched culture we are constantly bombarded with photos aiming to achieve that aforementioned swoon factor.  Although babies dominated the style sections in the mid 2000’s, lest we forget the days of Suri Cruise, now we see more and more pet-centric images.  Sure we have the North West and Aila Wang’s of the world but people are just as eager to spend hours lamenting over the adorable kitten that was just posted on kittens of Instagram regardless of her lack of sartorial contribution.

In fact, brands are popping up whose entire platform is devoted to showcasing cuteness.  The aforementioned catsofinstagram and their kitten/puppy/dog counterparts make it to the popular page on a daily basis and have developed a variety of social media platforms allowing fans to broadcast their admiration. Many other companies, such as popular NY/LA retailer Creatures of Comfort are taking advantage of the inherent likeability of say, a kitten in a pocket, while simultaneously boosting their exposure by splicing product plugs with sweet or hilarious portrayals of animals. In what may be the most meta approach of them all the publication “Cat People” showcases humans alongside of cats – individuals appear as a requisite supplement to the four legged creatures that are the undisputed stars of the publication.

Being in a business where my job requires me to stay relevant I spend a lot of time on the internet and trolling Instagram, where I often fall prey to vortex of cuteness. I revel in the opportunity to break up my time spent looking at beautiful images of interiors and furniture with something cute and cuddly. In an effort to pay it forward – I present a roundup of some of the cutest images submitted to me featuring cute and cuddly animals with poses ranging from innocent to seductive all with pieces of EQ3 furniture.

#EQ3Spotted: Modern Bungalow in Décormag

Feb 19, 2014

Comments Off

We were thrilled when these photos from the latest issue of Décormag arrived in our inbox last week. The article “Un bungalow pas comme les autres,” which can be loosely translated as “a bungalow like no other,” features the beautiful interior renovation of a fifties yellow-brick bungalow in Saint-Lambert, Québec.

 

Homeowner Louis Lachapelle and his wife Amelia “have a weakness for this kind of architecture,”¹ and they’ve transformed the existing architecture into a light-filled, modern home that’s perfect for their young family. We love how Louis and Amelia incorporated iconic pieces from the EQ3+ product line, such as the EQ3+ Herman Miller Nelson Platform Bench, in their open-concept kitchen/dining area. They look right at home with the couple’s mid-century modern aesthetic.

#EQ3Spotted: Jag and Agata’s Townhouse on Design*Sponge

Dec 3, 2013

(1 comment)

We spotted this on Design*Sponge last week…

 

#EQ3Spotted-Jag-Nagra's-EQ3-Reverie-Sofa-on-Design-Sponge

 

It’s EQ3′s Reverie Sofa in Klein Wheatgrass!

 

This sofa takes pride of place in the living room of Jag and Agata’s West Coast townhouse, in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. Jag is a designer and illustrator, running her own business Page 84 Design in Vancouver. Much like her designs, Jag’s home features clean lines and bright pops of colour throughout. The Reverie’s mid-century modern design is a natural fit in the home, blending seamlessly with Jag and Agata’s eclectic furniture and accessories. The Wheatgrass upholstery was a gutsy move (one that would scare off many a homeowner), but it really works. In fact, it’s almost impossible to picture the sofa covered in anything else.

 

Check out Design*Sponge’s article Sneak Peek: Colorful Minimalism in a Canadian Townhouse to see the complete tour of Jag and Agata’s home.

 

Thanks Jag, Agata and the Design*Sponge team!

#EQ3Spotted: Jeffrey’s Colourful Mid-Century Living Space

Sep 20, 2013

Comments Off

Kathryn, our design consultant at EQ3 Emeryville, sent over these interior shots of her client Jeffrey’s home. The space is bright, lively and chock full of colourful furnishings – a refreshing departure from the various shades of grey, beige and greige that are often seen in North American homes.

In the living room, Solo Chairs in yellow speak to Jeffrey’s fearlessness with colour. He kept the look classic by introducing other clean-lined, modern furnishings from EQ3, like the Marble Coffee Table, Scout End Table and Byrd Chair.

 

In the adjacent dining room, a pair of red EQ3+ Vitra Panton Chairs make an equally colourful statement, creating a sense of balance between the two spaces. A chunky EQ3 Harvest Bench and red Frame 3-Tier Shelf sit opposite the Panton Chairs. The shelf was cleverly put to use as a music station, complete with retro record player, record albums and an EQ3+ Design House Stockholm Block Lamp. The overall effect is playful with loads of personality. Thanks for the tour, Jeffrey!
