An Odyssey - Discovering Mangas

Aren't these rugs and poufs fun? They are Patricia Urquiola's new Mangas (sleeves) collection. I noticed them in the beautiful portfolio of interior designer Ligia Casanova Friday evening after Holly wrote about her. They happened to be in a store (I think) that she designed... I tried to find their creator that night, with nothing to go on. Then today I went to my newest follower Cez's fun blog, and there was a photo of the poufs and rugs, with the designer's name. Thank you, Cez. I did a little more digging and found additional images here. Just to recap, the odyssey went from Holly in Germany to Ligia in Italy to Cez (where?) to the Contemporist in the blogosphere to Gandia Blasco in Spain.

Cez said...

the only one problem is the price... 3000 euros for a Pouf!!!! ...could you imagine??? and 5000 for a rug....
can't afford..it's a pity
