Kate Rider recently graduated from Edinburgh College of Art,and made the exploring with the beautiful Mariposa Chair. A base tapered perforated metal which plays on the contrast between the feminine side decorations inspired lace and masculine image of locksmith. Mariposa chair is perfect to be used both indoors and outdoors and has a unique, delicate design.
When you look at the photo and do not know what it is in there, you might imagine it’s some kind of a decorative object or even lacework – at least that was my first impression. It is actually a lot more resistant than that as it is made of steel and this way it can support the weight of the person sitting in it, whether thin or heavier. This chair is meant to be used in pair: one painted in white and one in black, this way allowing couples to choose the one specific for their sex and also luring them into having private conversations and time spent only for two.
2foldlow is an interesting piece because of the fact that it is made from a single rectangular sheet of steel. The table is extremely stable and because of the triangular structure it has a lot of strength. The table can be used for multiple purposes depending on the needs of the user. 2foldlow is white in colour and can be used both in your house and in a public place. It complements the surroundings perfectly and adds to the charm of the current settings of the place. The table is made of glass and steel and is the perfect addition to your décor.
This amazing and unique table is made of glass and steel. The glass top is pretty heavy, so it must have a solid support in order to provide a secure use of this table. So the whole job is left to the steel triangles that are made of the table leg structure. Actually the whole base is made of only one sheet of steel that is cut and folded so as to have minimum waste and after that it is modeled so as to obtain the shape you can see in the picture. Available at cataci.com for 2,341.00 euros.
One of the things that almost every kid wants as they grow up is their own backyard playhouse. As parents, we want to give them one, but those pre-fab playhouses at the home improvement stores can be extremely expensive for what you get.The Modern Cabana revealed a contemporary playhouse, KIDDO Cabana to their collection of prefabricated living spaces. Designed and fabricated in San Francisco, KIDDO Cabana structures are flat packed and ready for easy assembly and each is available for 1500$.
The Playhouse is manufactured using all FSC certified woods harvested from sustainable managed forests in the United States, no VOC-paints and glues and natural tree oil stains. The structure does not need an expert to be put together and you can do that yourself if you follow the clear instructions. The playhouse is perfectly sized for the kids and is safe for them, too. There are no sharp edges and also nothing the kids can break or get loose or swallow or any other hazards for them.
There are three parts of the door that are flapping depending on the kids height. There is a blackboard inside and also a folding table they can use when they want to and also a little chair next to it. They can roll down paper from the scroll and use it for drawing and the windows are huge in order to let the natural sunlight in. In my opinion this is the perfect place for a kid to play in.
Here is a house with clean lines, rectangular forms and ceiling-to-floor glass windows that give the home a pure and minimal feel. I definitely like the Takao Akiyama Minimalist Home in Meiwamach because it has fresh and white forms that structure the design starkly contrast with the closely surrounding homes in the neighborhood.
This house stands out from the distance. When you look at the buildings in the block you can see houses, houses, houses and then suddenly this Minimalist home by Takao Akiyama. It is white to describe it in the first place and it shows its simplicity and purity. And white is the colour of choice both for the exterior and for the interior design.
And the designer uses it cleverly in combination with some colourful details in order to obtain the maximum visual impact. The white little stairs look like they are floating and a simple red flower pot on the white table is more obvious than a hundred decorative objects in a coloured house.
The house’s beauty is in the details that are carefully arranged in order to get the overall effect. The house opens up directly in the interior garden that has nothing but grass and is surrounded by natural pebbles. There is natural light in the house thanks to the wide windows but also to the whiteness of the walls. The minimalist style is obvious, but fits the whole picture perfectly.
Here is the best DIY sofa design ever seen, made by Eric Dalpiaz. Foam on all sides of various thickness, different for seat, back, and arms.I really like this modern sofa and I will try to make one but smaller for my home. This sofa is made of hardwood and MDF frame, has elastic straps for the seating and they will support the weight of the person sitting there and make them feel comfortable. The foam placed on this frame is covered with an eco upholstery that is also stain resistant, which is a good thing in the living room, especially if you have small children or absent-minded friends.

Here are some beautiful and joyful pouffes from Christien Meindertsma were recently displayed at an exhibition called ‘Farmer in search of style’ which was organized by Designhuis Eindhoven.With a extraordinary design you can sit on them, put them on top of each other, throw them chaotically around the room, they will still bring a fresh touch no matter where they are placed.
These pouffes are huge and fluffy, very comfortable to sit on, but pretty unusual looking. Your first impression when you look at them is right: they are knitted by hand using giant knitting needles and then they are filled with some soft stuffing. You can see the threads used for making the pouffes displayed on the wooden racks on the side of the photos.
The exhibition in question shows that these pouffes are characteristic for the farmer houses and also adds some more features like the animal skins covers for the armchairs and the wooden racks with coloured threads on. This isn’t exactly a style, hence the name of the exhibition – Farmer in search of a style.
Here is a bed accompanied by sheets with photographic prints in black and white. This is a new creation of the designer of Diesel, the Turntable Bedding.The pillows and bed sheets feature images of turntables with decks, equalizers, cords and knobs. Diesel Turntable Bedding is part of their Diesel Lifestyle Home Textile Collection. So if you are a DJ or you simply love turntables and the way music used to be played not long ago, you might love this bedding design.
It is out of the ordinary and unattractive to some, but some other people might find it really appealing. It does have a message and it does look out-of-the ordinary with the black and white print on.The design is very well done and you could think all the wires and plates are for real for a second. Just place it in a room with a sound proof head rest and a microphone looking bed side lamp and you will have your own private heaven for a DJ.
