For those who don´t know, Portugal Brands is a private initiative born in 2008, with the mission of encouraging and promoting a whole new creative and modern image of Portugal within the design industry.

As such, TemaHome was certainly included as one of the driving forces for this new approach to portuguese design.

During the week of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan last month, Portugal Brand was present at the traditional Via Tortona, in an exhibition that drew more then 46.000 visitors to acknowledge and appreciate this entire new take on Portuguese design furniture, featuring creations from the best minds in our country.

We are glad it proved to be a success, and greatly proud to have been part of it. Check out the Portugal Brands website for more information.

On May 9th, Lisbon was the stage for an astounding itinerant mega party-show evoking the beauty of white, called SENSATION - The Ocean of White.

In line with that, here is an interior design set suggestion: an all-white creation by Inês Martinho.

Leather, wood and metal were the elements that inspired her when laying the ground work for the Prairie sofa. This line sports modern geometric lines with sober, smooth finishes and were designed to be an instant classic, making it the centerpiece of any living space.

Panorama, on the other hand, is the result of a project focusing on a new kind of wall units. Creating an accessory that could work both as a media storage and as a decorative accent is no easy feat. We set out to create a product that can be added to any living space with very little effort in terms of assembly. We accomplished that by making a pre-drilled support that once installed, holds the unit in the wall. Taking into consideration the creative culture of our clients, we added a degree of customization by adjusting the dimensions in a way that allows the conjugation of more units sideways or upwards/ downwards. Panorama is our answer to your creative need of having a wall unit just like you want to. Two classics put together make for a peaceful living room. White just like heaven must be.

As we are approaching halfway through this year (already!), it felt that our blog was the most appropriate place to share a few links of fellow bloggers where TemaHome was featured throughout 2009. Here are included personal blogs, decor magazines or specialized publications. What follows, then, is a proud display of our crescent popularity and recognition within the design world.

Oriental-inspired creations are always warmly welcomed by design lovers. There is something about their simplicity that enables us to identify ourselves with a lifestyle of no excesses and a constant pursue of a broader clarity of thinking.

That is the soul of the Furoshiki rug. Its unusual, symmetric shape adds an impression of motion, along with an eye-pleasing, three-colour pattern which initially seems random, but is actually a well-constructed puzzle worthy of oriental logic. Its name remounts to the popular Japanese technique of gift-wrapping, which transforms most everyday items into smart-looking presents right from the outside. True to its name then, the Furoshiki rug aims to bring personality where it is needed, whenever the gift that is your home needs that little extra.
