What do you get when you give street art a cozy knit twist? That would be yarn bombing, aka yarnstorming, graffiti knitting, or grandma graffiti. Found here and there around the globe in the most random places, this knitted graffiti art softens the most urban of concrete jungles and just makes everything cozier. First spotted in the Netherlands, the idea has since spread across the globe, as witnessed in the following striking images.
Handmade cloud mobiles designed by The Butter Flying, a Montreal-based design studio.
Even cracked sidewalks in Paris are magnificent. Juliana Santacruz Herrera has come up with a fancy way to dress up the cracks in the street. What a cheerful way to brighten things up! If only every sidewalk looked like these!! Happy friday everyone!
These fun knitted stools were created by Irish textile designer Claire-anne O’Brien. They are just about the coziest little stools I’ve ever seen.
Rachel Denny works in a variety of materials, including wood, plaster, resin, wool, and found objects, to create her animal-inspired pieces. Her well-known “Domestic Trophies” feature elegant deer heads encased in soft skins of knitted cashmere.
“A deer in an urban backyard, a family of Peregrine falcons at my neighborhood park, a coyote skirting a parking lot, these all become a moment of wonder as they shake us out of our daily routines.”

This installation, titled “cabinet” by Misha Kahn caught my eye straight off. Maybe it’s the concept of everything having its own cubby, or its own specific place in the big scheme of things, but something about it just feels so darn reassuring. It’s extremely visually pleasing from a designer’s standpoint as well, with perfectly customized containers for everything.
“After scanning the hoards of chachkis lying on my bedroom floor I printed out life size puzzle pieces and arranged them into this curious thought bubble.” —Misha Kahn
