most creative way of throwing stuff together and turning it into useable art (sofa awards 2012)

December 31, 2012

The ninth annual sofa awards… keep coming back as more recipients are revealed throughout the rest of the year.

16Discovered while perusing the Union Square holiday market, 100%Cool Efi Designs is, as their bio tells us, “two of a kind, designing one of a kind items.” And that pretty much sums it up. Their booth was, without question, one of the most alluring for my eye, with colorful scarves, handbags, wallets and so forth, awaiting a trip home with some being intelligent enough to recognize the uniqueness of the products. I could have easily snatched up half the stuff they had on display, but I wanted everyone else to have an opportunity to shop as well.

The reason I’m so excited about these products is that there are so many cookie-cutter products out there and they are the exact opposite. 100%Cool is exactly what they claim to be: they’re different, they’re distinct and they’re actually quite useful. I’m a fan. The creative force behind the designs, Inga and Eviga, are based in Atlanta, where they design and assemble their pieces. Then they go out on tour, hitting cities along the East coast and settling in NYC for the holiday season.
