Stiksel

Stiksel, a.k.a. Karin Röling, was working as a graphic designer in the Netherlands when she decided to try freelancing. Fast forward two years and now she is the proprietor of a thriving etsy shop filled with creative pieces that showcase her design background.

Karin says, “When I make something, I don’t have a clear vision of how it should look like. I throw my table full of materials and start working and combining. Textures, colours, shapes. Things evolve by starting making them. I mostly get inspired by the material itself.”

I love the way she uses materials with a previous life in new and interesting ways — and of course I love the element of vintage typography!

While I was furniture shopping I came across home accessories designer Anthony David Oliver’s work. I love his business card holder (above), his wine racks and especially this simple but beautiful lamp (below). His work is minimal and clean but exceedingly well done and thought out. Perfect for my home!
