If you are looking for something that goes with your grandma's doily, this ain't it. However, if you are looking for something that look like out of this world... perhaps something extraterrestrial, then head off to Mosspop. That's where you are going to find Amanda Levete's FS bowl! Why would you want it? Well, not only is the bowl in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, but this Belgium made bowl will become the talk of the table when your guests sit down for fabulous dinner party you throw regularly.

When I first took a look at this picture, right away I thought to myself CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milling. I mean how else can can the walls/ceiling be done? Well, turned out that this restaurant named Auriga (in Mumbai, India) was done by hand sketches with carpenters onsite! Architect Sanjay Puri literally go to the job site every other day and direct carpenters where all the angles are going to go and how they are going to be connected! As you can see, the result is spectacular!

You can't get more versatile than Movisi's modular shelving system. This polypropylene "cubes" can be freestanding or mount on walls. There is only one module but because you can turn them in many different sides, they look like they are all different. It comes in white or black. It also comes with or without back so you can have a more see through look or not. Furthermore, it can be used as seating when you have extra guests stopping by your home. Your bookshelf has never been this versatile!

In a cold crisp night, nothing is better than snuggle up against a love one sitting next to a fire pit... or in this case a large fire bowl. Eldorado Stone fire bowl is perfect to keep you nice and toasty in those frosty spring and fall nights. The shape is versatile enough that it works for a traditional or sleek modern backyard. You can find more information on this bowl here.

I love jewelry inspired furniture. It always bring another dimension to an interior. By that I mean it amps up the glamor factor of a space. This sexy and chic dining table is no exception. I mean when was the last time you think of your dining table as something that any glam squad would admire? This table also works as a library table as they can customize it to any size you want. You can find more info at Hudson Furniture.

Or in English it's called The Blue Planet. This national aquarium in Denmark is breathtaking! It is currently the largest and newest aquarium in Europe. Located right outside of Copenhagen, architect 3XN was inspired by the circulating currents of the whirlpool. By the look of the building, I say they hit the nail right in the head! If you like this building, check out their newest monograph. Their other projects are equally inspiring.

Benu restaurant sits right at the same place where old Hawthrone Lane restaurant was. That was the only thing both restaurant shared though. Benu has consistently been rated as one of the best restaurant in San Francisco and there is a good reason for that.... food is exceptional (and they have two Michelin stars to prove it), service is on point, decor is understated, and the music choice is somewhat odd (to me anyway).
Its menu is Japanese/ Chinese inspired Californian cuisine. The overall presentation is elegant, simple, and very precise. My favorite experience has to be the birthday cake. Our server came out with a wooden music box that has little LED lights under. I crank the box and happy birthday song came out. Turn out the wooden box has a plate underneath with a delicious birthday cake. It was a very cute and a pleasant surprise. I highly recommend this restaurant for every occasion.
