Marry me Gidon Bing

Here I am trying to befriend an architechet, when all types of artists are building incredible modern miniatures. The Shopping Sherpa made this incredible find in the current issue of Home New Zealand. Sculptor Gidon Bing built the models and Katie Lockhart styled the homes for Karen Walker Paints, a new line of paints from Resene. How I wish we had an outlet where architectural models like these could be sold. I would love to do more than just drool over these pictures.

More pictures can be found on:
Karen Walker Paints (these have the paint samples for each model)
6 page HOME magazine feature (PDF) (download this, just so you can zoom in on all of the details and drool)
The Shopping Sherpa's post (she rocks. what a find!)
Stylist Katie Lockhart's website (great photos)
More of Gidon's work on Saatchi Gallery

  1. I saw these on the Shopping Sherpa's blog. They are incredible, aren't they? My two favorites are the bottom row, left and center . . .

  2. All of these beautiful prototype house just out of our reach. I also saw this on TSS but thanks for getting copies of even more great shots.

    Thought you might find the traveling Design Within Reach exhibit of the 50 top champagne cork-chair designs to be interesting. I think I'm going to try to attend the exhibit when it comes to DC next month. Check it out here:
