home: follow friday [ Sabi Sekko ]
Hand made im Derbyshire, the beautiful resin homewares from Sabi Sekko would make a lovely addition to a table setting, bed side unit, shelf or console, and would be perfect for a gift too.
The collection includes small trays, coasters, pots, trivets and tea light holders.
This ethical, sustainable brand has a range of pieces starting from just £8. Unique and original, head to their online store to browse.
‘All of our products are made from eco-friendly, non-toxic, acrylic resin. Sustainability was a key principle when it came to creating Sabi Sekko. We also use plastic-free packaging, including recyclable cardboard boxes, shredded paper filler, eco-friendly bubble wrap and recyclable, acid-free tissue paper.’
home: made [ diy resin coasters ]
Head to our favourite A Beautiful Mess blog for another great home diy project. Today our pick is a tutorial to make alcohol ink patterned resin coasters.
It’s a great easy project with wonderful unique results. The materials are easy to get hold of and it would be a simple effective way to produce lots of great little gifts (for teachers gifts, stocking fillers, house warming presents) or to create something unique for your own home.
Colours can be adapted according to taste and style. We love the idea of using a metallic ink like this gold one from Jackson’s , but plenty of internet based stores offer a variety of colours and pack sizes. You will also need an Epoxy Resin and Hardener Kit, gloves and a resin coaster mould.
home: found this [ mouse lamp ]
Last year there was a huge popularity in animal figure lights, from monkeys to dogs, flamingoes to rhinos. The simplicity of these lights have been a big hit and this season it’s all about the mouse. These lamps from Graham & Green are very cute, with three different designs to choose from [ sitting, standing and lying ]. The white resin mould holds an LED bulb giving the perfect light for a bedside table or for creating atmosphere in a corner of a room.
