Shop the Store : : COUP D'ETAT










Oh, I love this place and their eclectic vibe. I discovered San Franscisco's Coup d'Etat from California Home and Design Magazine. Apparently they have a new showroom located at 111 Rhode Island Street in San Francisco's Design District and have shorted their name to COUP .

These are my fave pieces! If you're in the Bay Area, I think you should check them out.

Elmgreen & Dragset






Elmgreen & Dragset, the duo who brought us Prada in the middle of Marfa, Texas desert, "have redefined the way in which art is presented and experienced. Drawing from disciplines as divergent as institutional critique, social politics, performance and architecture, in their sculptures and installations the artists reconfigure the familiar with characteristic wit and subversive humour".~victoria miro

I'm totally into these guys.

The Mandala Project

The Hammer Museum, in collaboration with Ari Bhöd will host a 10 day ceremony, starting Oct. 26th, where visiting Tibetian monks will use millions of grains of colored sand to create a "sacred painting, following precise and ancient instructions passed down over thousands of years". At the mandala's completion on Nov. 7th, the swept up sand will be immediately taken to the Pacific Ocean for dispersal among the waves during a public procession.

"The mandala painting represents boundless compassion, purity and clarity." ~Hammer
