Handy foldable macaron shopping bag

Environmentally friendly. Doesn’t take up any place in any woman’s handbag, but oh so handy when popping into the supermarket on the way home and you want to avoid those plastic bags and do your bit for the environment! Nicely folded away in a macaron shaped container. Produced by French brand Entre Temps from the CMP group in Paris. Thanks Esther!

The Macaron Lamp by Spanish designer Silvia Ceñal Idarreta

Not only the Makastool, but also a macaron lamp was found today!  A Spanish design by Silvia Ceñal Idarreta Design Studio.

After a short period working in different studios, she increased her know-how in furniture design at IED in Madrid. In 2010 she continued her career at Stone Designs Studio, working with Cutu Mazuelos and Eva Prego.

The Macaron Makastool by Italian LI VING Design

My friend Esther just app’ed me a picture of an article in a design magazine she was reading, asking me ‘for you’?. I checked out the website and am in love. There is no question if this is ‘for me’.. The answer is ‘of course’! The question is ‘which colour’. And the next question may even be ‘how many’? First thing tomorrow morning… a call to Italy.  Hope it is still Christmas….!!

And then the question comes to mind ‘will there be an eclair bench in the future?’.
