I’ve drunk the Kool-Aid. I’m a big big fan of Chicago-based interior designer Lukas Machnik. From his work on the television show, American Dream Builders — shown in the first four photos above, to his own furniture designs in the last photo, his work shows all the hallmarks of the kind of design I love.
This home, workspace and studio combination mixes everything together and comes up with awesome. Kitchen, dining, laundry and shower (that steel enclosure on the right above is the shower) all exist in this part of the space; I can’t remember ever seeing anything like this before. What do you think?

I recently opened the Japanese Trash shop on great.ly because I wanted to have a place where I could offer up quality items that fall into my masculine design aesthetic for those of you who are interested in bringing a bit of Japanese Trash into your own homes. From time to time I will feature one of the shop’s sources–or, as great.ly calls them, makers–so you can get a closer look at what’s on offer at the shop. Today’s maker is Keith Kreeger Studios, located right here in Austin.
Keith designs and makes porcelain wares for living and dining. His work focuses on the idea that “objects matter”, and his collections exemplify clean, polished, modern design. This desire to bring functional objects with clean design into our everyday lives is what drew me to his work and why I think you might enjoy collecting some of his pieces.
Perfect for a side salad, a dessert or a spectacular course during your dinner party. These sides and snack pieces are a great accompaniment to your collection. Order HERE.
This deep bowl is perfect for noodles, salads and side dishes. It’s handmade in Keith Kreeger’s Austin, TX studio and is available in a striped, inlaid pattern. Order HERE.
It’s time to entertain and you might as well drink colorfully. The newest and brightest collection from Keith Kreeger Studios is the Madison Drinkware. Made from scratch in the Austin, TX studio, these slipcast cups are available in four colors: early gray, blue smoke, mint green. and meyer yellow. Order HERE.
I hope you see something you like–and want to order! See more from Keith Kreeger Studios and all of my hand-selected makers on the Japanese Trash shop at great.ly.
