An outcome of this experience in small kitchen ergonomics is that I am now never without wall mounted stainless steel utensil rails and racks for pots and cookbooks - well whats a girl to do if you have no drawers ??
I came across this little gem on Amanda Prior's website and if I am not mistaken this kitchen has the very same Grundtal shelves and rails from IKEA as I have myself. At about $20 for a rail and $40 for a shelf you cannot go wrong. An important point of detail is to recommend IKEAs matt stainless steel S hooks from the same range which look much better than shiny ones and are good value at $5 for five.

The inspiration for the Loop is the Fibonacci sequence (see related post on the golden ratio ) a mathematical sequence which occurs frequently in nature. The golden ratio and golden curve based on the sequence appear balanced and proportionally pleasing to our eyes.

I am not sure if it is still available as on the current website http://www.carinasherlock.com.au/ it now only seems to be available in white - hopefully the black is not gone forever which would be a big pity if you ask me.

'What they're doing is anyones guess: They could be skaters in a rink, children in a playground, soldiers in a war or masqueraders at a crazy carnival. The props litteres around offer no clues. The interpretation, like the movement, is fluid, the setting is the great concourse of life.' Laura Gascoigne

The reason I really want the see saw is when I look back at the toys and furniture we have for our kids the most used and best loved have been made of wood. Our two Stokke Tripp Trapp chairs have 7 toddler years on the clock between them and are in use all day every day, and as were the wheely bug and IKEA 'moose' ( as we call it ).
