While browsing around the internet over the holidays I ran across some fantastic designers just perfect for design^sprout. The above clock from architect/furniture designer Jason Linde is made of recycled wood veneer. The elegant lines would be at home in any setting from modern to traditional.
This hanging plant holder from perch! would be great in an outside setting, hung over a kitchen counter with fresh herbs or maybe a few in a baby's room stuffed with plush toys. I am love, love, loving this pendant light from Brooklyn's Re-Surface Designs. Made from rusted, found metal this is such a creative use of something you'd never normally appreciate.
These felt owl pins from designer lupin are such a hoot! I think they'd be adorable as push-pins for a bulletin board but just one would be fantastic on a bookbag or a purse.
Using traditional felt molding technologies and local manufacturers as a source of inspiration, the Capsule Light from Mio explores felt’s natural beauty as a material for diffusing light and is completely recyclable.
Completely handmade, these quirky gourds from Design Squire are perfect and soft enough for baby's tiny chompers.
