Telling Tales

The Victoria and Albert Museum currently has exhibition called Telling Tales featuring furniture, lighting and ceramics that push the boundary between art and design like "Table #1 (pictured above) by Swedish-born artist, Patrik Fredrikson. I don't think I'll be in London any time soon but the interactive exhibit on their website gives you a glimpse at the pieces. Naturally, I like The Forest Glade section which is "inspired by fantasy and nature evoking the spirit of fairytales." I wish I could actually stumble upon these creative objects in a forest. Now that would make a great hike. I would probably never leave. 

I love the inspired "Princess Chair" by Tord Boontje.

The "Linen-Cupboard-House" by Juurgen Bey is straight out of a fairy tale. 

It would be great to take a bath in the woods in Wieki Somers' "Bathboat."
