A Modernist Forest House Finished in Stone

In the times of yore, the forest houses had the freedom of choosing whatever they liked in the forests, but with the ecology depleting the modern designers and architects have a tougher task in hand. Check out this modern forest house finished by Zecc Architecten in the woods Soest, the Netherlands. The facility keenly presents itself as a detached modern forest house by choosing an exterior material that almost replicates a stone. Add to this effect some wood details and the overall structure definitely connects with the pine trees surrounding the facility. Also, large expanses of windows have been purposely used to get in great views of the forest house. The house looks like a natural element in the neighbouring forest, as it is covered with natural stone and wood and this ecological approach makes it look normal there and not out of the ordinary or unusual.There are no boundaries like tall fences and the house faces the woods directly, having the interior garden filled with grass. The interior design is very modern, but the whole ensemble is great, even though a bit contradictory: natural and modern at the same time.

Japanese Garden Furniture

As the Japanese culture is continuously developing among people all over the world, it is no wonder that people are looking forward to decorating their homes in a classic Japanese style. Whether we are talking about Japanese beds or Japanese gardens, we are talking about the same process that is developing in all over the world.

First of all, in order to get the Japanese garden you have always wanted, you must talk with a specialized designer. Or, if you consider that you might do it yourself, then you must learn something about the Japanese garden furniture.

First of all, the Japanese garden furniture is characterized by the bamboo furniture. Every garden that is decorated in this style should have a table and some chairs made of bamboo. Usually, the price for such a set – a bamboo table with 4 bamboo chairs – is somewhere near $250, VAT included. Does it worth? We say that it surely does, as it is mandatory for every Japanese stylized garden to have such a set of bamboo table and chairs. A nice accessory for such a set is a bamboo umbrella. With a special design, this umbrella can reach even 3 meters if it is opened at its maximum wideness.

Another accessory that is definitely a must have for every Japanese garden it is represented by the stone sculpted statues. Figures like Buddha or Japanese fighters will suit every garden, as long as they are properly placed. The disadvantage of such a statue is the relatively high price: a stone sculpted statue of Buddha may reach even $600 or even more.
