Squiggly lamp and Morning sketching

I am trying to get back in the habit of sketching each morning
As an illustrator it's so important to keep the drawing muscle flexy and also to do personal work along side commissioned work.

This morning i stumbled across this fabulous squiggly crunchberry lamp by Straydog Designs.
Immediately inspired me to  do some sketches - and to also hopefully make time this summer to do some paper maché which my heart has been longing to do.

The Crunchberry lamp from Stray Dog Design.
Isnt it fabulous?
So squiggly.

Morning sketches.

Sketch: Tolix chair

Below: a sketch from last week. 

Here is the chair the sketch was based on.

I love drawing chairs and learning about the history of furniture.
The Tolix chair was created by Xavier Pauchard in 1934.
It was originally meant as an outdoor cafe chair but is now often found inside 
- in a rainbow of colours - in very styley kitchens!
Tolix also makes great industrial looking stools.
the chair is part of collections in the MoMA in New York, the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Vitra design collection in Weil am Rhein in Germany. - See more at: http://themustardceilingblog.com/2012/04/tell-me-tuesday-bam-or-slam-14.html#sthash.mv9dRUq0.dpuf
