The amazing Bench inspired by Nature

For art lovers, the regular furniture pieces aren`t so interesting. That is because they are always looking forward to see not only innovating stuff, but a combination between tradition and futuristic views, something that brings them that feeling of approval. That`s why the homes of the artists look so interesting to us, because they always find a way to mix these two currents and they do it right. And we know about the fact that artists are eco friendly too.

This bench is perfect for art lovers and not only. It looks like Mother Nature herself made it. Like it grows from earth and it shaped like this for humans that love luxurious furniture. In reality, this extraordinary bench was designed by the famous French sculptor Xavier Dumont, inspired also by nature`s power. Now, this amazing piece of furniture is exposed Anthropologie’s gallery at the Rockfeller Center in New York.

It is necessary to have a very narrow table that will only hold the necessary stuff like your keys, a small lamp, a phone and maybe some accessories. But this table is so important for the general design of the hallway, as it makes it more personal and beautiful. For example this Tuvan Console Table with Drawers is the perfect accessory for any home, bringing elegance and style and welcoming you the minute you enter the door.

Artistic dresser makeover

There are lots of ways in which you can restore a dresser. The simplest one would be to just repair the damage is existent and maybe to add a fresh coat of lacquer or paint. But if you have the time and the necessary spirit you can also attempt something a little more complex. For example, you can get some inspiration from this project.This used to be an old dresser with a plain, simple look. It was in wonderful condition.

However, it lacked that spark, that je ne sais quoi that makes it stand out. It’s why its owner decided it was time for a makeover. After that, the dresser became a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture with a unique and very creative design. It now has a sea-inspired look. The front of the drawers features a beautiful ship, the classical image we’re used with.

3Blocks – Multifunctional Wooden Cubes

Playing is very important for kids because it develops their intellectual and physical skills and also develops their imagination. When we grow up we do not play any more and this is a shame because we might need the fresh perspective of a child’s mind every now and then. These wooden blocks that come together as 3Blocks are perfect for any creative mind or for those who like a challenge and want to make a change every day in their home design. They are actually three pieces of furniture that are pretty similar , but rather different at the same time, three blocks of wood that can be used as stools, side tables, storing units and so on, depending on your imagination.

Eileen Gray inspired side table

Modern furniture is mostly made of metal. Somehow metal is associated with modernism while wood, though warmer and nicer to touch, is considered old fashioned. That is why this beautiful minimalist Eileen Gray inspired side table is quite a representative item for modern furniture. It is indeed a beautiful side table and it surprises you from the first sight with the shining metallic frame and interesting design. First you will notice the two sides of the table, one serving as table top and one as base. Both are circles and the base one is actually only three quarters of a circle and this makes it pretty stable.

These circles are thick rings that are made of stainless steel and they are connected by a strong stainless steel leg that is doubled by a thinner bar that is added for further support and also allows you to adjust the height depending on your needs. The upper side , that is the table top is made of tampered glass, so it is pretty safe even if it happens to fall and break. It is a beautiful modern side table and it is now available for £85.00  on Coco interiors web site.
