between a rock and a soft place

Man, that’s got to hurt!

If you did a double take upon viewing what may appear to be a strange primal form of torture, take a third look and rest assured, these “rocks” are actually pillows (to add to their cool factor this international company operates sansEnglish, so Google translate –

Composition modulable pour le sol,
pratique et poétique

Gamme laine
100% laine vierge

– and you’ll soon know that the ingredients are anything but limestone aggregate!).

For more info, check out http://www.smarin.net/fr/editions/livingstones/ or the simpler smarin.net for other equally refined and gorgeous products.

OR check out Hawkin Lower School’s piazza, a project in the works for studioTECHNE architects in Lyndhurst, Ohio. These wee ones will soon have everything from a stage to a custom stone and glass river set in tree cookies. Yup, tree cookies. And of course the coolest pillows imported from France. I’m sure the teachers, too, will take a lesson from these adorable Smarin kiddies, pictured below.
