COCOCOZY

COCOCOZY is more than an excellent daily design blog.  It’s certainly worth reading in its own right for functional and stylish design material, but what really caught my eye about COCOCOZY is the Shop.

The COCOCOZY shop offers textiles, from pillows to throws to table linens, gifts, vintage accessories, and other unique items.  I especially like the textiles.  The patterns are fun, quirky, and fresh with a simple graphic concept.  Items like the pillows and table linens make great gifts; they are quick finds without being mainstream.

COCOCOZY featured a blog post a while back about the entire process of making a pillow, from the progression of the idea to the final product.  This behind the scenes look at how a product is developed is just fascinating.  Starting with a sketch, the blog follows the steps involved in bringing a design into being.

First, a sketch of a flower design.
