I have always loved the chameleon for its unique ability to change its body colors and now even contemporary furnishings are looking to replicate that ability. At the Milan Furniture Fair, the Fokas Fiber showroom showcased a unique kind of tech furniture that could change colors just like the chameleon does.
These changing colors were embedded in the furniture itself and that made the Fokas Fiber corner a great attraction at the fest. Everything from the sofas to the carpets and even the chairs were changing colors at the Fokas counter courtesy of the fiber optics technology. Fokas mind you, is no ordinary name and the Greek company has been on the job for the last 35 years innovating creative furnishings.
It’s a very interesting and revolutionary idea. It’s a new way of making your home attractive and fun. Technology is constantly working to make our lives easier, but sometimes it just makes it more fun and interesting. It might be annoying when you’re trying to hide somewhere, because you just can’t do that anymore. So the kids might not like that. But other than that it’s a really great invention. I’m sure a lot of people would love to turn their home into an experiment with these revolutionary pieces, but this might have to wait because the price is not that friendly.
This table on view here is something that can please both the traditional and the contemporary furnishing admirers as it is a cast-aluminum version of the age-old rain drums which were ever so famous in Asia. Dubbed the Metal Drum Accent Table its features a traditional relief pattern and though it is made of aluminum, the table is finished in antique-bronze. Crafted in Thailand this Metal Drum Accent Table is ideal both for indoor and outdoor use and it adds up to the aesthetic value of a surrounding courtesy of the smooth concentric patterns.
Despite the fact that it has a robust and heavy shape, it’s a quite interesting piece. Accent tables are usually interesting in terms of form, shape and details. So this is not something new. What is new is not the shape, but the fact that it was incorporated into a table’s design.
I would say this is an original piece. It’s also very versatile and it takes little space so it’s great for both small or big apartments or houses. Also it’s versatile in terms of style. So it would make a great addition to either a vintage home or a more modern one. It’s would be a very interesting piece and it also has some very beautiful details. Just make sure you don’t place it on a leaning space because it might fall.
Glass has always held a special place in furnishings and this time we are witnessing the use of glass in a chair unlike usual times where we talk about glass tables. The Tonelli chair is actually a combination of leather and glass and it is a new concept in glass design, which is a consequence of a deep and lasting passion for research and experimentation for Tonelli.
This is a striking contemporary design where an armchair gets a black or white adjustable seat balanced between toughened glass sides. The opening in the sides forms comfortable armrests. The Tonelli glass arm chair costs £2,650 and gets shipped within 8 weeks.
I honestly don’t like anything about this chair. The idea of creating a chair from a combination of glass and other materials is not bad but the result is not positive at all. Even without the glass features, this chair would still be extremely ugly. Plus, it’s not comfortable, it’s not functional and it takes quite a lot of space. So I’m sorry if this is offending, but the long time of experimentation was for nothing. With a few adjustments it could look better, and as for the comfort issue, I like the adjustable seat idea. But the design and the shape have to be changed. Maybe some people disagree with me, and that’s ok, it’s just an opinion.
The first glimpse at this image of the Porada Big Bea chair finished by Merconato & Zappa makes you want it so desperately. Even on a personal note, I so badly want to have a feel of this chair which gets finished in leather or fabric and depending on what you prefer; you can have one of these ordered to your place.
This chair with the solid ash frame is available in 13 different colors and as mentioned before, the seats can be ordered upholstered in leather or fabric. The cover is removable except for the leather finish or sudden fabric finish. What is more is that a rectangular pouf is also available with this chair.
I really like this huge chair. It’s fun and it looks extremely comfortable. I also like the shape and the design. Considering the dimensions it could be used as a sofa in a small space.
And considering the fact that it comes in 13 different colors, I would say there’s no way this piece wouldn’t match with your interior design. But the price might be a turn off, because this chair is available for £3,148. This was actually designed to serve as a reading chair, probably that’s why it’s so big and it has those cushions, to make the reader comfortable. But this doesn’t mean it has to be used just for that, because it would make a great addition to any modern home, as long as it’s a large home with enough space.
Armani SpA and Emaar Properties have together decided to open up a collection of hotels, resorts and residences in key cities around the world and the first Armani Hotel opened to a gala gathering in Dubai. The lavish hotel occupies eight floors of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which is currently the tallest building in the world. It was a proud Giorgio Armani who opened his first hotel to the world and the opening was followed by a runway show of Armani’s spring Privé collection.
You are making it a habit here on homedit to read about a rarity every damn day and we are not in the mood to disappoint you today. Today you get to witness Acido Dorado, a golden house that is a mirage and it is located in the Southern California desert.
Designed by LA-based architect Robert Stone,Acido Dorado features a sloped roof and a tinted glass grid among steel ironwork that distinguishes the house giving it a purely golden look on the sandy landscape. What is great is that the inside of this abstract house is also finished in a simple palatte of white which again shimmers in the golden hues. A large heart figure set into the glass at the front endorses this house with a rare stamp.
Chandeliers are of great aesthetic value and they always are a style statement in any surrounding but they sometimes commit the crime of weighing down your roof. This is where the SevenUp project from Tim Baute chooses to be different. Tim has an affinity for materials that are unconventional and it is because of this reason that the SevenUp is light, smart and obviously very nice to look at.
As the name depicts, SevenUp has seven arms and each of the seven arms holds a 5 watt light bulb through a fine steel cable. These cables are then attached to a light structure at the ceiling, aligning them in a manner that gives the chandelier a classical and lovely form.
