When I named this blog Vene, Vidi, Voce — I Came, I Saw, I’ve Got to Tell You About It, this was the type of post I had in mind.   A web site that I just stumbled upon (I can say that without infringing any copyrights, can’t I?) has rocketed to becoming my favorite site and my first check in the morning.  The site is Daily Icon Magazine.  It is a beautiful site covering architecture, design, fine gadgets, exotic foods and travel.  I will let the site speak for itself below and when you click and check it out.

Daily Icon Magazine features profiles of extraordinary Designers, Architecture and Products, with a special focus on furniture, accessories and lighting for the home. Dedicated to unearthing emerging and established talent and sharing inspiring design solutions. The format is simple: lots of images, carefully edited.

In addition, regular weekly posts feature:

Monday – Archicon
Every week we feature on an Architecture Icon, from the early days of modernism to the present.

Tuesday – Interiors
From Abidjan to Zürich, the best in domestic and commercial interiors

Wednesday – Living Icon
Major contributors to design — people (past, present or future) who have changed, or will change, the course of design as we know it.

Thursday – Design Icon
A single product or design that has had a direct and lasting impact on our culture, either though design, function or meaning.

Friday – Food & Travel
Out of the way destinations, and some of the most creative hotels, restaurants and cutting edge ideas in cuisine, as well as current trends in packaging.

Saturday – Books
A well stocked library is essential — designer monographs, photography and architecture, each carefully selected to inspire.

Sunday – Rest
All the rest: photography, art, eclecticism, and all the things that life offers.
