Design Doppelgängers: Finding Inspiration in Unlikely Places

April 13th, 2011

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know that I really enjoy interesting furniture design, as well as interesting fashion design. A few weeks ago, I stopped into ABC Carpet & Home, a wonderful home furnishings department store with a great philosophy, where I spotted a very cool-looking chair. It immediately called to mind the new necklace I had sitting on my desk back at Lion Brand (and recently featured in our YarnPlay monthly newsletter; click here to subscribe).

The combination of these two things reminded me of the blog Oh Joy! and its This/That feature, showcasing a fashion and home item whose styles are reminiscent of each other. Isn’t it neat when design concepts converge?
