making temporary changes can be fun, cheap and easy...

Gawd, I love a really great ‘before’ shot, don’t you? There is nothing like gratuitously bad decor decisions just aching to be fixed. A friend recently bought a place with the most incredible plush cobalt-blue velvety carpet I’ve ever seen, and while she was sweating and trying to point out the potential (“Just imagine there’s no carpet at all...”), all I could think about was how brilliant the ‘before-and-after’ shots were going to be. Of course, she has a whole raft of exciting changes planned but, in the meantime, to buy her a bit of financial breathing space, she’s going to start the process of a ‘make-do makeover’. You know the type; a halfway measure that doesn’t cost the earth, but stops you feeling frustrated at the previous owners every time…

floor lamps

‘Mr. Dowel Jones’ floor lamp DESIGNERS: Dale Hardiman and Adam Lynch of Dowel Jones Glancing at the refined silhouette of Mr. Dowel Jones, you’d be forgiven for guessing its material makeup incorrectly. Yes, there’s the timber element that is humorously referenced in the lamp’s name, but the black details are made from compressed rubber. “Originally, the lamp’s key components were 3D printed, but after meeting now long-time friend Ash Allen, he suggested producing the components in rubber,” says Dale (pictured left). “Besides being a notable designer, Ash runs a rubber factory in Thomastown, Victoria.” The addition of rubber meant that there are no screws, thanks to the flexibility of the material. “The overall form looks quite animated, so we felt it needed to be given a name to suit its personality,” says…
