window shopping - gathering ideas

Sometimes its fun to just stroll around the shops and get inspiration...
Some things can be made, or similar things bought and adapted...
here are some ideas I got today...

in Bolia - a furniture shop I liked the idea of dividing a room with bamboo - it definitely softened the room and made interesting shadows, it also moves, as it is not absolutely fixed. Its a room divider, but still there is possibility to see through...

Bolia again, baskets attached to the wall for storage

Asian store (there are many around town) check out the bowls - great for sorting, storage, displaying

Granit - another natural touch for the preschool with these bark containers - can be used for pens etc - or even as part of the construction corner

Asian store - natural cutlery...

Granit - clipboards in a variety of sizes - smart idea to have smaller ones for smaller hands...

Granit - I liked the table - a big round tray on metal legs (it was stable enough - at least more stable than a similar one I saw in Åhléns) - it would make a great sensory table both indoors and outdoors...

Asian store - really BIG lazy susans - great idea for all sorts of projects, but also for nature tables, art tables etc, to allow materials to be accessed more easily. The bigger ones have a tyre going round the outer rim...
