So I was looking for some "world vibe" home decor and patio ideas again and landed at Overstock.com. I've bought from them before and some of the items have definitely become favourites. With this batch, I think my lighting fetish is shining through again. ;)

See their "WORLDSTOCK" category for similar items.

FROM THE WEBSITE: What is Worldstock?
Around the world there are artisans who know how to make exquisite centerpiece items. Yet they have trouble accessing the US market because they are small-lot producers in an age of mass distribution. Often there is no way to get goods from their remote villages to here, and when there is, too many layers of mark-up make them unaffordable. The tragedy is that if we bought their goods, the artisans could prosper without abandoning their native crafts and culture, and without depending on charity.

Overstock's main business is bringing small lots to consumers at affordable prices. 3 years ago we realized that this capacity is exactly what artisans need. Thus was born Worldstock. We locate magnificent items made by craftswo/men around the world. We emphasize sustainability: choosing items that are environmentally sound, and that don’t burn up the natural or human resources of their producers. We pride ourselves on being honest brokers: we don’t gouge producers with our clout, nor consumers with mark-ups, thereby allowing the artisans to receive an average of 60 - 70 % of the money you spend in Worldstock. Our goal in Worldstock is not to make money, but to create 10s of thousands (and someday millions) of jobs in the poorest regions of the world, while bringing customers unique products of which they can be proud – hand-crafted clothing, jewelry, ceramics, furniture, and much more.

Marilyn Bed by Mario Bellini from Flou - I like the white fabric one.

The pin-up girls of the 40’s and 50’s would be proud of the Marilyn bed available from Flou. Designer Mario Bellini brings us this adorable bed from a bygone era in true European style. The bright red lipstick shaded leather surrounds the sensuous curves. The Marilyn bed is also available in white fabric or leather for a slightly toned down appearance. Matching mattresses, ottomans, benches and bed linens are also available at Flou. The slatted or orthopedic base provides for ultimate comfort for those lazy Sunday mornings. It is only sold in a double size bed. Go to Flou to coordinate this bed into your next design.

Kachelöfen & Outdoors Decor

What a great space. I'm usually not for wooden interiors but here it looks very nice.

The curved shape is great.

Kachelöfen. I love them. They're a part of "home" for me as we had one in our holiday home. I used to sit on the warm tiles reading or just hanging out. It's so cozy. I'd love to have one in my home.

I also liked these. They'd make some beautiful outdoors decor:
