You may remember Studiomama from our recent post on her wonderful Kid's House. We recently visited her Web site and found several repurposed and fun items we would love in our home.

Studiomama is based in London and owned by the designer Nina Tolstrup. She trained as a designer at the prestigious Les Ateliers school of industrial design in Paris and has a BA in Marketing from the Business School in Copenhagen. Designed by Nina Tolstrup, London-based Studiomama offers a "pro-active approach designing" where form follows function certainly holds true.

One of our favorite Studiomama pieces is the 1 x 1 Ruler. Part of the 1 x 1 line, each piece in the line is created using the same sections of 1 x 1 wood. Lamps, chairs, hooks and trestles comprise the 1 x 1 line.

The On/Off Alarm Clock, manufactured by Lexon turns on and off by tilting it end to end. We figure by the time you get up, turn it off and play with it for while, you'll certainly be ready to start your day.

The Pallet Block Stools are formed from the end blocks of pallets. Also available in red, this is one of those pieces that a teen can have in their room and easily take with them when they move out. It's unusual, repurposed and very cool.

The Happy Family Chairs were inspired by Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The aim is to, "...move away from the homogenised norm, and tailor each piece of furniture to the individual's size and preference."

And of course, there's the wonderful Kid's House...
