Lego Inspired Home Furnishings are Trendy

Lego is one phenomenon that a person can never get rid of at least till the time he is young and the passion for Lego is now touching new heights. It is not just limited to creating one off surreal Lego structures, but the design is now gone mainstream with Lego inspiring the home furnishings.

There are the Lunablocks which give Lego the form of a coffee table and even a console table and then there is the Lego Chandelier which has been designed by John Harrington. Another home furnishing item is the Lego LED Lamp which is an ED illuminated acrylic block lamp from Taiwan’s 25togo. Lego is something which lets a child explore his creative potentials and rightfully, the theme deserves to be an inspiration for home furnishings.

‘Vision’ Free Standing Sink from Rapsel

Those amazing sinks from numerous famous brands add a lot of oomph to your bathroom surroundings but here is something which is utterly novel. The Vision free standing sink from Rapsel is the coolest integration your bathroom can ever get and it is way more stylish and trendy than any of your branded sinks you have already affixed.

Brand Rapsel has smartly brought to use Alicrite material and has clubbed it with internal lighting for that glittering effect. Just to ensure that the magic aspect of the Vision sink is at its best, you will need to light up your bathroom a tad moderately. This amazing sink is priced at £4,277.00, which is fair enough as such exclusivity never comes cheap.

I like it when I see simple and modern bathroom features. That is a room that doesn’t need a lot of details. It’s supposed to be mainly functional. Of course, the aesthetic aspect can’t be neglected, so a combination between the two is the perfect choice. And this collection has it all. It’s simple, very functional and it has a nice modern look.

These sinks are really special. They have a very beautiful and sophisticated appearance. I like the pattern and I think they would look very beautiful and interesting in a modern bathroom. Maybe you don’t need two sinks so you can just choose to purchase one.

Angelo Mangiarotti Designed Multiuse for Agape Casa

Agape Casa is offering the ideal furniture piece for modern individuals who look for items that offer ample storage and can be easily transported. Angelo Mangiarotti is the creative brain behind this effective and useful furniture piece and he has designed this item for the respected brand Agape Casa.

It is in the most simplest of terms a furnishing piece that features a structure in which seamless horizontal planes hold up the vertical elements and these are fitted with extruded aluminum cross-beams. This kind of setting allows the front doors to slide easily. There couldn’t have been a better name for this furnishing than ‘multi-use’ as it can be used as a multiple drawer rack or even as a simple table.

This is an interesting design for a furniture piece. It looks very functional but still, I have the feeling that there’s something missing. It’s a great storage space where you can hide your things. And there are those lateral spaces where you can also place some decorations, maybe even books. And on top you can even place a small tv. This is a very versatile furniture piece. It can be placed in the bedroom, and in this case you can store in there your clothes, or your other personal things. And you can also choose to place it in the living room. As you can see from the pictures, there are a lot of different color combinations for you to choose from.

House Beo Seeks to Redefine the Contemporary

We come across numerous contemporary houses on a daily basis but there are some which potentially redefine the word contemporary as well. House Beo located in New Zealand is one such structure which is destined to take modern architectural patterns to an all new high.

Illumination is a need of every structure and this House Beo in particular is exemplary when it comes to applying lighting techniques. The amount of information available (regarding the construction technique used) is unfortunately limited so all that you can do is to enjoy the images that follow.

It’s a very beautiful and modern house. It has a very nice design, both in terms of exterior design as well as of interior décor. Every room as specific look, a different atmosphere and décor. But what they all share in common is the modern and simple style. It’s nice how all the materials and patterns work together and form a complete and equilibrated image. And all the different colors also work together to form complementary and colorful images.  It’s a beautiful design, modern and elegant and also stylish.

This is a really big place and it’s very modern and beautiful. There are a lot of interesting features incorporated in this design, the obvious one is the glass part. The interior design is minimalist and very elegant and sophisticated.[Office for Word and Image Photography: Tim Van De Velde]

House 6 from Marcio Kogan with a Covered External Space

Sometimes the specific client demands can bring out the best in an architect and that is what has exactly happened with Marcio Kogan. Marcio finished the House 6 after the family requested a covered external space which could be used for everyday living. Marcio resorted to reviving the idea of a traditional veranda for the House 6 where the veranda is more of an open space which simultaneously opens to the garden as well as the pool. The veranda also renders the services of a living room, a TV room and an extended kitchen which as the images reflect looks pretty cool and acceptable at the same time.

This beautiful house is located in Sao Paulo, Brazil and interestingly Brazil in the older times has had a strong tradition of veranda laden houses. Thus, House 6 is a mesmerizing structure which enlivens the old and blends it with the new.

Philippe Starck and Eugeni Quitllet Designed the Magic Hole Series

Philippe Starck is seemingly everywhere these days as we showcased his egg-shaped lounge chairs earlier and now he has collaborated with and Eugeni Quitllet to compile the Magic Hole Series. ‘Compile’ may not be the apt word but since the series is a combination of some utter different furniture, I am ready to take the risk.

Magic Hole is a combination of a two-seater sofa, an armchair and smaller table-front armchair which has all been manufactured with the rotational molding technique. The three pieces adorn a dark and neat color scheme on the outside while the carroty tinge sparks up life on the inside. It is collection for the garden and logically enough, it is weather proof.

I really like this collection. It has a simple design, more or less classical and traditional, but still with a modern touch that’s pretty visible. It’s not like this collection has a revolutionary design or anything, but still it’s original in a simple way. There’s something about the shape that makes it special, plus those little color accents. Black and orange is always a beautiful combination. It creates a nice color contrast. Although this is a collection that seems to be appropriate to public spaces and not so much suited for an apartment or a house. That’s mainly because they are not very comfortable, plus I didn’t see a lot of apartments that have benches in their living rooms.

Roche Bobois Paris at the Salone del Mobile 2010

Roche Bobois Paris is one name that brings to mind refreshing images of contemporary furnishings that are capable of giving your surroundings an unmatched ambience. The brand is at its best again making its presence felt at this years Salone del Mobile with furnishings that quickly become an eye-candy irrespective of the surrounding items being displayed thoroughly as well. It is a case where the images do the talking and therefore I’ll leave you to enjoy them and form an opinion of your own.

There are a lot of interesting furniture pieces in there. There are many sofa designs presented there. A lot of collections to choose from. From what I see from the pictures, most of them share a modern style. Some are more colorful and fun and some are more simple. But they all look very comfortable.
