Let’s distance ourselves from the typical furniture designs and expand our horizon a little bit. There are lots of unique creations out there and, although it’s impossible to know them all, it’s always fun and interesting to discover them one by one. The designs we’ve gathered here today are not just beautiful and eye-catching but also multifunctional.
Who can resist the fluidity of a curved back sofa, or the voluptuousness of a velvet tufted wingback, or the classic appeal of an Eames lounge chair? (Answer: Very few of us.) This Furniture section highlights a variety of furniture types, styles, finishes, and pieces, just to name a few. This Homedit section is a definite must-read.
Multifunctional furniture is very popular these days. Being able to save space without giving up comfort and function is ideal and lots of designers try to take the concept to a new level. They often manage to do so. This is how things like these unique stairs are created.
This is actually more than just a staircase. It doubles as a storage space and it even hides a workspace with shelving. The innovative design comes from Mike Mejier and it’s called Object Élevé. The all-in-one workspace is now part of a home in Hague, the Netherlands.
What I love about interior design is that you never know what you will find next. Then occasionally we are stopped in our tracks, we are stunned, we are appalled. What we assume as being ‘taste’ seems to know no boundaries and there it is, a product that shocks and surprises us. I have searched the globe and found 13 Home Furnishings that are Seriously Wrong.
1. The Dog Poop Lamps.
Designed by the artist WhatsHisName they were designed to make the user feel a little uncomfortable, and I think he succeeded. I just hope they don’t come with a scent!
Have you ever thought of having mirrored bedside tables in your bedroom? It’s true, they’re not very common, but they can be surprisingly wonderful options. The nightstands, also called night tables or bedside tables, serve the role that coffee tables usually have in the living room.

They are designed to be placed beside the bed but can also stand elsewhere in the bedroom as well if the design or layout require it. Depending on their design and material, they can differently impact the interior décor of the room. Mirrored nightstand, for example, can add depth to the room and make it seem more spacious and bright.
We live in a world where time and space are probably the most valuable aspects of our life. That’s why it’s vital for us to preserve them, as much as possible. We are the only ones responsible for the way we organize our schedule, but things are quite easier regarding the space we live in. If you live in a small apartment, we have two words for you: modular furniture.
February 2014 came up with a unique project created by Noon Studio designers, Gautier Pelegrin and Vincent Taiani. There are some details that we have to think about when we are looking for a new piece of furniture.
For example, design is very important, but we shouldn’t neglect other fine points like functionality or versatility. Noon Studio designers combined all of these and this is what it came out: a multifunctional steel stool! Apparently it’s just a chair, but looks can be deceiving most of the times.
Coffee tables are very common and very popular pieces of furniture all over the world and lots of different styles and designs are available.However, low coffee tables seem to be the biggest trend in modern interior design these days. They are appreciated for their simplicity and usefulness as well as for the fact that they have a low construction and don’t obstruct the rest of the décor.
Thought to originate in Renaissance England, coffee tables have always had a low design but the modern ones really use this feature to their advantage. Usually featuring simple lines, clean designs and perfect angles, modern coffee tables impress with their minimalism. They preserve the functionality of the piece while also transforming it into a sculptural and stylish focal point for the room.
Vertical storage is at the top of my list of things I want to have in my home when I move in. That’s because I find it very economical and practical. Theoretically, it’s not that much different to have a vertical drawer instead of a horizontal one but you’ll see that it’s much easier to fit vertical storage in the room, no matter its function.
In the kitchen, vertical racks are perfect for storing and organizing spices and other things. They take little space and they easily fit in the kitchen island or wall cabinets.
