It’s a very interesting piece of furniture that is definitely not following the traditional design of the sofa. It’s a different kind of sofa made for the same purposes: to make the users feel comfortable. But unlike the traditional designs, this one also looks interesting and intriguing.

Like any new idea or concept, at first people are reticent about it. They often have a hard time getting used to the idea, some of them don’t like it, others might like it but they prefer to stick with the old ones. This concept makes no exception. I’m also having a hard time imagining how this piece would look in my home. And I admit that it’s very interesting, but I still can’t find it very functional. Maybe with time things will change. But for now I would like to keep my old sofa.

The example presented here is white but there are also other colors, more bright and happy, for this design. Maybe some is all you need for a change of perspective.

2010 Devon & Devon Bathroom Collection

Devon & Devon was founded inspired from European traditions more cultured and refined. The new bathroom collection 2010 Devon & Devon is characterized by simplicity of form and design in double version. First, harmonious and feminine, and secondly, strict and masculine.

It’s an interesting idea, that of creating different designs for men and women. They do have different styles and ideas of how a bathroom should look like. But that only works of you have more than one bathroom because otherwise you’re just going to create chaos in there. Mixing two whole different concepts is not a very good idea. But for those of you who don’t share the same bathroom this might a good choice.

Personally I like both styles. The feminine one is a little more sensual and it features some curved lines. The other one, more masculine is also beautiful because it’s simple and functional. I still can’t understand what that sofa has to do with the bathroom. Maybe some people like to incorporate the sofa into their bathroom design but it would have to be a really big bathroom. Nevertheless, I like the color combination. The purple and that strange tone of red are very beautiful. And in contrast with the white tones they look very nice.

Manzanita Wall Art

Wall decors can be any thing that adds life to your home. There is no need to follow strict rules, just do it in your own artistic way. Here are my suggestion, for creating your own winter wonderland with shiny aluminum branches inspired by nature. The Manzanita Wall Art features six glass cups that accommodate votive candles.

It’s a nice piece that could help you create a very beautiful and romantic atmosphere. The nature inspired designed allows it to be included in any kind of décor. It would look ice in the living room, suspended on the wall above the furniture or in any place you might want to put it. It could also look nice in a bedroom. The candles could create an intimate atmosphere perfect for that room.

Of course, this is just an example of how you can decorate your space using candles. During winter season this type of decorations are really beautiful and they give you a warm feeling. During the hot summer season, not so much. But you can just store them away and replace them with something more refreshing until the cold weather installs again. Wherever you might choose to place it  I’m sure it’s going to look just fine.

I’m pretty sure that some of these designs from Michel Haillard are scary but in the same time are awesome. The idea from this furniture is from the hell, and to create this fantastic piece of furniture was used the most drastic materials starting from crocodile and ostrich skin and ending with horns and tusks of wild animals. Also it was created not without natural fur, which are covered inside cabinets and drawers. The frame and trim are made from wood, bronze and silver.

It’s a really radical furniture collection. I love each and every one of these pieces. I wish I could have them all. I’m not sure what I would be doing with all of them, but I want them. The designs are so original and artistic, and the image they create is so strong. They might be inspired by hell but for the owners they will look like heaven.

It’s a very creative and beautiful way of turning hell into something so amazing and exquisite. They might not be eco friendly and they also contain real fur, but who cares about that when they see how extremely beautiful these pieces are. I honestly love them. And I’m sure there are plenty of people who share the same feeling. It’s been a while since I’ve been so enthusiastic about s piece of furniture.

Because of the floral patterns, these lamps would better fit into a bedroom. But there are also other types of patterns and designs for the other rooms of the house as well. They are simple, fresh and modern. The design Is not too bold and the colors used are soft. Another reason why I think they would best fit into the bedroom.

About 600,000 lbs throw outs are used to construct Boston’s Big Dig House. First the material was sorted out like pre-fab method, delicate spatial planning were created

These waste materials have another favorable property. These kinds of highway construction waste products are more capable of carrying load then standard material. So when it comes to construct a roof garden in a building, one can use this kind of material.

Big dig house also hosted large size Roof Garden. This kind of constructions is a great example for mankind. In future planning should be done in such a way so that building like libraries, school, other community buildings, and even private residential building will construct using infrastructure waste. Every year thousands of tons infrastructure waste heap up. Using them in this way we can save environment also.

Inspired by the shape of traditional Japanese arcades, these stools are perfect for those who want a little more color in their living area.

The great thing about them is that their shape allows them to be stacked one on top of the other, making it easier for you to store them away when you’re using them. This way you can save quite a lot of space. The shape is not only appropriate when it comes to storage but it also contributes to your comfort. I would say they are more comfortable than the usual round shaped ones.
