Nothing makes a home feel cozier than a fireplace. The feeling you get when you sit in front of a fireplace and hear the cracking wood and feel the warmth of the fire is unique and can’t be compared with anything else. Contemporary fireplaces have diminished it by changing the design and even the technology behind it but they brought something else in return. Modern fireplaces are much more practical and they match the decors.
The Pyramid fireplaces offered by Planika Studios bring warmth but also style to your home. Even though their design suggests they are outdoor pieces, they can also be used inside the house. Their simplicity makes them versatile and stylish. They feature a glossy white base and they are made from highly resistant fiberglass polyester laminate. These bio-fireplaces are extremely safe to use. They feature a Commerce burner that uses highly absorbent ceramic fibers thus drastically increasing safety.
Nowadays we tend to use the old pen and paper only in situations of crisis such as when our phone’s battery is dead, when the power is off or when we’re stranded somewhere without electricity. It’s a new era and things evolve. Even the architects and designers find technology helpful. So in a situation when, for example, you need to search for an apartment, there are numerous apps that can help.
There is a growing number of apps that can be used to help you find an apartment and they can be easily accessed when you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Just visit the App Store for that. However, finding them won’t be easy as they are not grouped in a specific category but rather spread in categories such as Business, Lifestyle, Navigation or Utilities. To make things easier, we searched the App Store for you and we have found a selection of very useful apps designed for the particular purpose of helping you find the apartment you’ve always dreamed of.
Clocks in general, just like mirrors, are some of the most common accessories to see in any home. They have this double function and they are both decorative elements and functional items that help us in our daily lives. Table clocks are particularly interesting because they come in so many shapes and designs. Non là is a great example that shows us how much these designs can vary.
Non là is a ceramic table clock that was designed by Milan-based Studio Klass for Diamantini & Domeniconi. It has a very interesting shape. But the most interesting thing about it is the history behind the design. The clock’s shape was inspired by the famous straw hat which in Vietnamese is called Nón lá, hence the name of the clock. The designer only borrowed the shape of the hat and used it to create a stylized version for the clock.
When you decide to get a pet companion, there are lots of things to take into consideration before actually making the purchase. It you wish to have a dog, you need to decide whether or not you have the space for a large dog or if you should just go ahead and get a cute small dog. Then of course, there’s the biggest problem. If you’re the type of person that enjoys sleeping until noon, a dog is not the best option for you as it needs to be taken for a walk at the first hours of the morning. But there is still hope.
The Power Pet electronic pet door now makes it possible even for those that are a little lazier than they should be to have a dog and to be able to properly care for it. This electronic pet door will let your dog out for it. It does that while also keeping uninvited guests out, something that regular pet doors can’t do. The door comes in several sizes and is available for dogs up to 100 pounds. The price starts from $270 and rises with the dimensions.
The Power Pet door slides vertically in order to let your pet in or out. It does that thanks to its incorporated motor. Not only that, but it’s also a smart door. It opens and closes based on the proximity of an ultrasonic collar that your pet needs to wear in order for the door to function. The door will also sense the direction that the collar is facing to and thus avoids accidental openings. The Power Pet operates on a standards A/C wall adapter or a rechargeable 12V battery. It can be set to in only, out only, in an out as well as closed and locked.
Today’s inspired piece is a wall-mounted valet hanger and shelf, an object that is very functional and helps you save up a lot of space. Designed by Diogo Frias this interesting piece has an extremely strange shape that creates mystery about its purpose and functionality.
Nowadays you can choose from more than one valet hangers for your home. Some of them take up a lot of space, but not Andy. The economy of space was a major factor during its development, which is achieved due to unfold in order to fulfill its primary function, the hanger. Folded, a frame of oak is visible only with a simple shape of a hanger cut on it, giving this lovely piece a more sculptural aspect. When not needed, Andy neatly tucks away. Moreover, as as added bonus, the top ledge can be used as either storage or display case.
