Ecomii: Greene's Organic Prescription Just For Babies by Dr. Alan Greene

R3 Project: Good Rugs by Nani Marquina by Petz Scholtus
"It was love at first sight when we saw it at a Nani Marquina sample sale in Poblenou some 2 years ago. Its warm, bright yellow colour and its corn-on-the-cob-like texture make a great contrast with our lush tea-coloured cork floor. But there is much more to this Barcelona-based designer’s rugs than great designs that meet the eye (and toes)"
