loyal loot

as their "about" section states, "loyal loot collective was created in 2003 and currently involves the individual and collaborative design work of a group of canadian women. as a collective, loyal loot strives to create designs with a natural quality by staying true to materials. the inherent value of these designs is meant to last a lifetime ensuring that they retain a non-disposable presence and remain precious to their owner, becoming more and more meaningful as they age. loyal loot exhibits their work together and aims to create community in design, within the collective as well as with fellow designers. Members of loyal loot are involved in several creative facets, specializing in furniture, products and clothing". they are: carmen douville, doha chebib, dara humniski, anna thomas.

a couple of my favorites, the cupcake table, they say, "was meant to focus on function with a decorative detail".

" the white surface is made of inexpensive, yet durable countertop laminate which is easy to clean. the edge is detailed with a scallop to suggest a fancy tablecloth".

and the trophy mirror, they say on their site, " is influenced by taxidermy plaques. the outline is reminiscent of the hunting history associated with prized victories."

loyal loot was invited to include dara humniski's coat hang in wallpaper magazine's "wallpaper world edit exhibtiion". the exhbition, designed by zaha hadid included 10 international creative centres and 10 cutting edge designs from each country. the exhibition took place during milan's international furniture fair, salone el mobile.
