DesignMilk Sweet Finds

Drum Light by 326 : A tap of the drum turns on the LED lights inside the snare and another tap turns them off. The sound activation has been designed not to be triggered by ambient noise. The lamp’s heigh can also be adjusted.

Do you have any friends or family members that would just love this? I sure do.

Buckle Up Key Holder: Keep your keys safely buckled with this buckle-shaped key holder by Thabto.The key-ring buckle fits perfectly into its mate, which hangs on your wall, keeping your keys buckled up until it’s time for you to buckle up again.

I'm always looking for interesting ways to stay organized.

Concrete Chesterfield Sofa by Gray Concrete: UK-based Gray Concrete created this concrete Chesterfield sofa for exhibiting at 100% Design London. The sofa is made by taking a mold from a real Chesterfield, which is then used to make a glass textile reinforced casting. The cushions are a part of the casting. Before making the mold, the padding inside the cushions was replaced with a rigid foam which was modeled to make “bum prints.” The molding techniques used by Gray Concrete pick up detail really well so the concrete sofa really looks leathery. There’s even a concrete 50p piece stuck down behind one of the cushions to complete the realistic effect.

I love chesterfields, the color gray and the idea of this fun outdoor furniture piece.

Dwell Patterns for Heath Ceramics: Debuting this weekend at Dwell on Design is Dwell Patterns, a new line of tile from Heath Ceramics and Dwell Media.
This new modular tile system is the result of a successful collaboration between Chris Deam (designer, architect, and husband to Lara Hedberg Deam, founder of Dwell Media) and Catherine Bailey (Co-founder and Creative Director of Heath Ceramics along with husband Robin Petravic). Separately, two halves of successful power couples; together, a dynamic design duo.

Love this blue one, my husband is in the tile business, I'm sure he'd appreciate me posting these.
