If you are looking for a fun piece of furniture to add to your living room, we have just the thing for you.
“Stop Playing With Yourself” is a combination puzzle and multi-purpose piece of furniture created by Australian designers Schamburg + Alvisse. It can be a sofa, chair, bed or just a star sculpture in your room. As a matter of fact, you may spend more time taking it apart and putting it back together than actually sitting or laying on it.
The Abisko washbasin from Eumar is more than a bathroom sink. It is stunning cast mineral marble fashioned to replicate the fresh mountain springs and waterfalls from the Swedish national park, Abisko. The flowing design is meant to remind us that water is one of nature’s precious resources and it is not in our best interest to let it pool in a big tub but to let it run free and to capture only what we need.
The Abisko washbasin dispenses with traditional drain pipes and other details. The fluid design incorporates very few components so that the water can spill freely down the length of the sink into the open grill to simulate the flow of water in nature.
Often when I’m perusing the internet searching for cool home products, I find myself saying “I want one!”. But I have to admit, I don’t think I’ve been so serious about my product lust until I saw Ruf-Betten’s RUF Cinema Bed. This retro bed houses an entire home theater system complete with fold-out screen and projector giving you a drive-in movie theater feeling without having to get out of your jammies.
The Ruf Cinema bed has a home cinema rack between the two headboards that offers you enough room for a DVD player, subwoofers, gaming console of choice and even conduits for all the cables so you won’t get your feet tangled. When the movie is over, simply touch a button and the screen disappears inside the foot section. This bed is the ultimate in intelligent media design – allowing you to enjoy your media entertainment of choice from the comforts of your bed.
Cure your fear of bears by pretending you are the mighty hunter and have slayed the terrifying bear. Then strut around the room wearing the huge bearskin to show off your prowess. OR take the sleeping bag camping and you can scare the be-jezuz out of your friends when they wake up next to you.
Both are possible with this incredible new sleeping bag by artist Eiko Ishizawa. This fun design is so cool (and a little creepy looking) that we just had to share it with all of our readers.
Surfing the web, day after day, I come across a lot of very creative and space-efficient home designs. While many are worthy of talking about, one in particular got me really excited. It’s the ‘concealed door’ from Space San Diego, a space planning and interior design company.
Concealed doors convert any existing door in your home into a fully functional built-in bookcase, while still allowing you to access to the room. This idea is not only space-efficient and offers an incredible way to increase storage space, but it’s also really freakin’ cool. It’s like a personal secret passageway right in your own home!
