At a first glance you immediately notice the robust shape. This is not by any means an elegant piece of furniture. It looks very heavy and difficult to move around. Considering by the dimensions of this sofa and its size, it better be very comfortable, otherwise it would be just a waste of materials and space. And if it looks so fat in black, a color that is supposed to make you look slender, imagine how it would look like in white.

The sofa is actually composed of two elements that are held together just by that thin steel frame. That kind of makes me feel like it’s incomplete, like there’s something missing there. It just doesn’t look a finished product, more like a pre-version of the final product. It also has no feet or anything like that so it looks even heavier.

Unusual Split-Level House in Philadelphia

There is never a good idea for a new construction of modern design to be built in the neighborhood fill with historical building. They just never fit well into the neighborhood. There is always a huge contrast between the modern design and the old historical design buildings around the neighborhood. Many sure have seen one example at least why it is a bad idea for a constructed modern design building to be built in the neighborhood of historical buildings.

However, in Philadelphia, there is a building that might prove the idea of not to fit a modern designed building into a neighborhood of historical buildings wrong. It is the Split-Level House at a historical neighborhood in Philadelphia. The building definitely integrated perfectly well into its surrounding among the historical buildings of earl design, this building is nonetheless a modern day designed structure wich was designed by Qb Design.

This Split-Level House was built with the material like concrete that has been polished, and steel and wood used in many modern day construction. This Split-Level House is a 3 story house built with a private garden on its roof with a nice view to the neighborhood. It is indeed can be considered as a perfect fit into the neighborhood.

Villa Bussum by GROUP A

The Villa Bussum is located in the green surroundings of Bussum a small city near Amsterdam. It was designed by Group A and it is the house where contemporary and sculptures are combined together and interrelate with its green surroundings.

The sloping walls and the roof of this conceptual house stand in contrast with the surrounding monumental buildings, occasionally even frolicsome 19th century villas.

Villa Bussum by GROUP A

This villa elevated from a plain rectangular dimension with a revolving pitched roof. Consequently, sections were incised from this volume to make windows, terraces, verandas and doorway. There is a special corner in front of the house which directed towards street. This is the main entrance of the house. On the east part of the villa, a private garden and another entry recommend a more private area. On the back side of the house there is a contented porch and a window which is 15m wide gives panoramic view of the garden. This part is located at the back of the house.

The back and front garden is connected with a slanting path. This downward path is passing itself beneath the cantilevering block, so that the basement floor also has accessibility of garden, and a contented covered parking lot.

Bulb Chair by Gaëtan Van de Wyer

Now that’s a really interesting piece of furniture. At first you don’t even know what it is, then after analyzing it a little bit you realize it’s actually a chair, a very unique one indeed.

If you are looking for this type of furniture, perhaps you should turn your attention towards rattan furniture. Such furniture is created from cane, which is one of the toughest materials in the world. The Bulb Chair was designed by a Belgian designer, Gaëtan Van de Wyer. The bulb chair features an LED lamp to illuminate your space. As you can see from the pictures the chair is made from sustainable materials, including rattan and water hyacinth. The Bulb Chair measures 88cm w x 107cm d x 178cm h.

Creating a chair that actually has a lamp incorporated in the design is a very clever idea. It makes it the perfect place to enjoy reading a book or just sit there thinking of your problems, meditate or any other activity you might think of. I’m sure that for the user it’s a very comfortable and pleasant piece of furniture, but for the other ones…I don’t know, it looks kind of creepy. I wouldn’t want to come across that image when walking around the house.

The Munich Lounge Chair by Sauerbruch Hutton

Designed by Sauerbruch Hutton, an architectural company with the headquarters in Berlin, the Munich Lounge Chair will be produced by German manufacturer ClassiCon, which will be presenting the chair at the upcoming 2010 IMM Cologne show. This type of chair designs are good for our posture, although I’m not sure about the shape. The Munich Lounge Chair will be available in frame of oak or walnut, stained and clear varnished.

As you can see the base is made of wood and it has a natural color. The actual chair is black and it has an unusual shape. I’m not sure what’s the purpose of this design but I assume it was built for comfort, because if they actually chose this shape in order to make it look beautiful, then it’s a total fiasco. This is not a pretty chair. I don’t find it elegant or stylish, not even ok. I think it’s a waste of space to have something like this in your home. It just looks odd, and not even in a good way.

However, there are plenty of people who are actually looking for pieces like this. They actually like to have odd things in their home. Every person has its own style and personality, so there’s really no good or bad when it comes to this kind of situations. If you like it, then this is all that matters.
