Floorplay and Floorscape

Samantha Parsons, of I am Samantha, is the creator of floorplay and floorscape floorscape, wonderful floor systems that offer a sexy alternative to foam playmats. A series of squares (Floorplay) or triangles (Floorscape) combines with slits and creases allow these mats to be folded to create headrests, cubes, tunnels, forts and more. They are made of upholstered felt on one side and durable PVC on the other, making them a viable option for inside or out.

Grand Chair

Jelt Vangeest created this rocker to celebrate the bond between grandparents and grandkids. The seat fits two adults and one child. The child seats swivels so the kiddo can sit next to or facing his/her grandparents.

Very Small Architecture

Exquisite craftsmanship is evident in this lovely playhouse designed by Japanese architect, Kazuya Morita. Fiber-reinforced concrete was applied to a mold in an extremely thin layer, mirroring the exact proportions of a hen's eggshell. Though it is eggshell thin, this concrete structure is strong enough for an adult to stand on. The resulting space is intimate and peaceful, an ideal escape for big and little people alike.

Jen Mercede's Colorful menagerie

Jen Mercede is an artist working out of Portland (my brother was lucky enough to have a view of one of her murals from his old apartment). Her colorful canvases would make a wonderful addition to a modern nursery.
