What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Bending Gravity

Bubinga is a boutique studio established in 1985 by Ishay Boltanski in the beautiful slops of Jerusalem mountains.” I assume he meant to write “slopes,”  but I cannot resist a typo. I’m kind of a jerk that way.

Etsy seller Bubinga Wood Design sells gloriously weird and compelling hand-made furniture and bath furnishings that seem to defy gravity. How some of these things stand up is beyond me. Their one-of-a-kind executive desks are especially magnificent, though the bathtubs did me in, too. How warm and luxurious does a wooden bathtub sound?

Designer Ishay Boltanski is from Modiin, Israel, where he finds many of the exotic woods he works in. If I ever hit it big and need an executive desk (or an executive bathtub), I know who I’m calling!
