Web Watch: Slip stools and wall stickers

1 Wallpaper

From the Nicolas Le Moigne exhibition at Gallery Libby Sellers in London to a video about designer Gitta Gschwendtner, this is a site for serious design fans. The video by Justin Anderson, ‘Living Room- The secret life of furniture’, is a surreal collage of scenes set in Gitta’s home. The architecture tab opens up a world of stunning designs, every style possible. Beautiful.

2 Art Stickers

There’s a lot of sites to cater for the growing trend of wall stickers. This one is run by Lubica Mackovicova who’s based in Youghal, Co Cork and more than lives up to the UK and international sites. You can get products made up from your own photos, there’s wall art for every room in the house, from shower doors to fridge magnets, and you must check out the toilet stickers — not as potty as it sounds.

3 My Deco

Europe’s best boutiques at a glance at this site. The sheer amount of products is mind boggling — whatever room of the house, it’s there. From bursts of pop colour to stark white; minimalist structure to elaborate prints and pattern, this site loves it all. Here’s a little heads up: there’s a gorgeous traditional Persian shiraz rug, hand made, in the sale section down from £1,140 to £229 at time of typing. Nice.
