When I watch old movies I find myself looking in a nostalgic way at the old train station lamps that worked on gas and spread a blurry light around. I don’t know why I find this very romantic and nice, even though I am a modern person and I really enjoy all the benefits of modern technology. But I happen to like these lamps, both because they look so old-fashioned and nice and also because the shape and contour of the lamps is elegant and stylish even today. That is why this Nickel Station Table Lamp caught my attention.
The table lamp you can see here borrows something from the design of the old gas lamps in the railway stations, but they add something else that makes them appropriate in a modern home: the shiny finish and the nice nickel touch, plus the fact that it is small and elegant and works on an economic light bulb, too. You can purchase the item for $129.
When it comes to furniture there is an infinity of options. Most of them can be split into traditional and modern or into simple and complex. But sometimes we feel the need to have something in between, something that is simple and yet striking. This particular chair is just that. The chair was designed by Xavier Pauchard and it’s a very versatile piece of furniture. It’s available in a variety of different finishes both for indoor and outdoor.
The dimensions of the chair are H850 × W450 × D460 mm and it weights 4.4 kg. Because of their design the chair are stackable and when not used they take less spaces and they are easier to store. There are three outdoor finishes to choose from: the Cataphoresis, Galvanized not varnished and Galvanized varnished. There are also some indoor finishes, like raw steel glossy varnish, raw steel matt varnish or simple paint.
You can also opt for leather seating that can be either black or burgundy. This particular type of chairs can be used for example in the dining room as they are comfortable and have a simple and yet stylish design. They would also be a very beautiful choice for the outdoor space like terraces or decks. In case you need some extra comfort you can add a soft cushion on top.The price it’s available on request.
I think every person is unique and that is why they should have unique things, things that make them particular and not similar to millions of other people. That is why I prefer personalized items and also hand made items. That is because when you make an object by hand it is impossible to have it made exactly the same as another one and also the artist (every person that makes a beautiful thing by hand can be considered an artist) leaves his or her own print on it. This gorgeous Belle Rug from Maude Decor is the best illustration of my belief. You can’t simply find a similar item, something as spectacular and extraordinary as this.
This is a canvas rug and it is offered by Maude Decor. It looks great and is called “Belle” because this word means “beautiful” in French. Oh, and it refers to something or someone that is feminine. The rug has a beautiful dahlia painted on it and belongs to a limited edition series, since only twenty such rugs are made with this model. It does come with a certificate of authenticity and is already signed by the author and dated. So if you are interested in purchasing such a rug, you should contact the manufacturer.
Remember how we talked a while ago about a coffee table shaped like a photo album? Back then it was only a prototype in its early stages. Now it became a real thing and you can take it in your homes. It’s called Rememberence and it was designed by Mitch Steinmetz. The piece is more than just another cool coffee table with a strange design. It’s the central piece of the living room and it’s a subject for conversation, gathering and storage.
The Rememberence coffee table is made of wood and stainless steel with denim cloth and it has a very realistic look. It look like a giant photo album and you can even open the first page and find a storage space where you can put all your favorite items, where you can store your memories. Remeberence stores your old memories while also helping you create new ones.

This incredibly beautiful house that you see here occupies 7.000 sq ft and it’s located in Sunset Strip, Los Angeles. The house was designed by McClean Design and it’s one of those properties where the location chose the design and not vice-versa. Because of the incredibly beautiful views available from all areas, the house needed to take advantage of its location. That’s why the glass walls were inserted into the design.
The house is not a compact structure. It’s divided in two by water fixtures and by the pool. This is quite unusual, not to say unique. However, it’s not such a radical idea when you think at the functionality of its design. The pool was an important element in its house’s design and so it was placed in the middle. The other very important element were the views.

With its delicate and elegant shape, the Allure table deserves its name since this is the word to better describe it. It has a very beautiful shape, with an arched base composed of three criss-crossed elements. The base is crafted from walnut veneers and the best plywood solids. So despite its shape it’s stable and durable. The glass top is the perfect choice to complete the whole design.
The glass top has a strange shape, it’s oval, more like a curved triangle. It’s made of tempered glass and stainless steel pucks. The dimensions of this beautiful cocktail table are 34w 34d 18h. It would be a very elegant appearance in the living room where it could be used as a multi-functional table. It’s a very beautiful alternative to the usual coffee table.
The base has a beautiful silver finish that might make you think it’s made of metal when it’s actually wood. The color goes very nicely with the transparent glass top. The Allure cocktail table can be purchased for $249.00. The price doesn’t include the delivery charge. As for the care instructions, they are basically the same as for any wooden piece of furniture. It needs to be wiped dry and the top can be cleaned with cleaning products that are specially made for this material.
