Chatchada markets modern and contemporary objects for the home, mainly from Japan and Italy. The founders are architects who started this site to promote good design and create a design network. Above are Covo Group teapots offered by Chatchada.
Kamelyon Design is a company based in Austin, TX makes custom handmade lamps with solid wood bases and lampshades sculpted from laminated paper. Above is the Fish-on! pendant lamp from Kamelyon Design.
Vesta Home is a store in Arlington, VA offering bespoke (one-off, custom) contemporary furniture. It also sells Penta lamps and lighting fixtures from Italy.
UPDATE: Vesta Home closed in June 2006.Potter & Mellen is a jewelry and tabletop store in Cleveland, OH, near the Cleveland Clinic. I will highlight its jewelry when I next update the Fashion pages, but P&M offers many brands of home accessories and tablewares which were new to me. Here are a few that caught my eye:
Carrol Boyes is a company based in Cape Town, South Africa that specializes in innovative, contemporary metalwork designs based on African motifs for the kitchen and home.
Mustardseed & Moonshine specializes in botanically inspired pottery. It is also based in Cape Town.
Lindt Stymeist is a company based in New Jersey that manufactures fine stoneware.
Riverside Design Group from Pennsylvania makes handcrafted tablewares from post-industrial/pre-consumer recycled glass
