A friend sent me these images and many more besides; the reason I've not uploaded all of them is that except for the Regatta Daybed from the "LIFE SHOP COLLECTION", I could not find any information with which I could launch a source-search. Does anyone know how one would begin to search for an image source if one has ONLY the image and no identifiers? I really DON'T like displaying images without source information (and wish that everyone would include links when they post images in e-mail msgs). Anyway, the two other pix I've featured here were objects that I especially loved. Even though that wash basin would probably be a house-proud person's nightmare ...

UPDATE: Yesssss! I have now added source information to the pix that are already here. Also updated the name of the wash basin which I incorrectly identified as a "nautilus". It is, of course, based on an ammonite. Now I will run off and spend the rest of the day searching up the other pix ... What TOTAL FUN!! Here's the site address for reverse-searching pix: TIN EYE.

UPDATE of UPDATE More images now.

Hi! I just strayed upon your blog from a link in the Kerala Blog Roll. But this Marginalien thing confused me a little. Had to read the comments to double check its really you! Great designs!

Marginalien said...

Is what really me? Am I real? Or only a blog?

Glad you liked the designs! We aim to please, whether or not we're really us.

That its really the one and only top notch artist, caricaturist and writer beyond compare who goes by the name Manjula Padmanabhan!

The design that I liked the most was the white, equine sofa, though its more of art and less of function.
