Favorite shop - Orphansocks

design: Sergio Dias /made in: Portugal

What would happen when an architect would open a shop with products for home? A place with pure and simple design objects? Yes - it just happens! Eva van Dongen studied architecture at the university in Delft. She is the designer and owner of shop Orphansocks which is fresh and just open for you to have a look. She selected really special things mostly from other designers.  I really like All Lovely Stuff company,  they make me smile. And a wooden toys of Sergio Dias made in Portugal looking like really inspiring toys for small ones. 
Eva keeps her shop in a simple and vibrant atmosphere and thats what I like best.

  1. Yes, this is a lovely shop.
    I have written about all three of these toys.
    I actually discovered Sergio's toys, he wrote to me last year and asked me to help him promote his work. I advised him on his website and promoted him via Babiekins and my blog.
    I love, love, love his work :)

  2. I didn't know his work. I saw it first time at Orphansocks . Maybe thats a good sign, that you can buy it already in The Netherlands. I hope he will get well. His work is really amazing.
