Baroque ‘N’ Roll… Jimmy Martin Furniture

The designer duo Jimmie Karlsson and Martin Nihlmar -known as “Jimmie Martin”- produces a range of “antique” furniture with an interesting twist. Their hand-painted decorations and funky paintjobs turn “antique style” pieces into modern eye-catchers… Their work is purposefully tacky, sometimes very witty and sometimes borderline offensive… but it certainly is never boring. I love it!

In case you have no money to splurge on a piece signed “Jimmie Martin”, I believe it is very possible to recreate this look with second hand furniture and spray paint. In case you do have the cash (or for inspiration), check out http://www.jimmiemartin.com/!

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...
