Know your clasics! Zig Zag chair by Rietveld

This is the Zig Zag chair by the Ducth architect and furniture designer Gerrit Rietveld. Rietveld had a passion for simple lines and complex design. One of my favorites is this Zig Zag chair from 1932. Rietveld's goal was to make this item out of one single piece. The chair was manufactured then by Metz & Co. Nowadays it is still produced by Cassina. Rietveld has designed numerous furniture pieces but is also known for his architecture. For more information on Rietveld click here.

Open house - Cool loft with industrial look.

How incredible is this loft? I love the industrial look, the open space and the brick wall. But I also really like how the owner has decorated the place. Very cool look!

Happy New Year! And happy 100th post!

Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all the best for the year ahead of us. A year filled with joy, good health, prosperity, love and a whole lot of inspiration! Cheers!

As I'm writing this I realize that this exact post is my 100th post! Another reason to celebrate. Writing this blog has been a great source of joy, inspiration and positive energy for me. Mocca & Me has also connected me to many lovely people this past year and I made some wonderful friends along the way. Thank you all for your support and encouragement!
At the beginning of every new year I always make a few resolutions. I'm wondering what your new year's resolutions are. Mine are to go to the gym (no laughing please... this time I'm really really going ;-) and to save more. And to post much more inspiring items on Mocca & Me. But my biggest resolution, which is actually more a goal, is to move to a new apartment this year. My current nest is just too small and I need more space. Meanwhile, I'll be searching for inspiration for my new place and sharing it all right here. I'll keep you posted.
