Named Floating House by MOS Architects, the two-storey building provides a summer residence on the Canadian side of Lake Huron. Thanks to its pontoon base, the house adapts to the changing water levels of the lake, which rise and fall throughout the year. Externally the building is clad in a rainscreen of cedar planks. Living spaces are all located on the level above. The entrance leads directly into the kitchen, which functions as the house’s main artery. The lounge and bedroom occupy the large spaces at both ends, while an office, bathrooms and storage spaces fit in between. Wood was used throughout the interior for flooring, ceilings, furniture and joinery.

Inspired by the crown of a pine tree, the Branch Chandelier’s extensions were designed with modular logic and can be easily turned and customized for unique placement, this is a fantastic mix of modern design and pure nature. As in nature, the boughs are non-recurring and the Y-shaped constructional elements used to create the boughs turn to different positions relative to each other. Beyond the standard of 9/5/14 element options, a maximum of 28 elements can be combined to create the perfect size and expansion for a tailored look. Such a chandelier is suitable for any modern, minimal, masculine or industrial space and will definitely make a statement.
D79 is a small house that the team from mode:lina completed in December 2014. The house was designed for a family with young children and this was an important aspect to take into consideration when planning the whole project. One of the main kid-attractive features is a wall behind the dining table that was covered with chalkboard paint. This allowed it to become an attraction for the kids and, at the same time, it became a focal point for the whole room and a way to add character to the space. Looking at this project as a whole, it’s obvious that there’s a lot of harmony here. Everything is beautifully balanced and the house manages to be both kid-friendly and functional. It’s a perfect family environment and creating it was challenging but also really rewarding.
IKEA Kura bed is a great loft bed, it is recommended for 6 years and older. Slatted bed base is included; the mattress must not be more than a total of 5 1/8″ thick in order not to exceed the safety marking on/by the upper part of the ladder. Turned upside down the bed quickly converts from a low to a high bed. Kura can be used not only for shared kids’ rooms but also if you have one kid: the lower part can be used as a play zone, or on the contrary, and you can even eliminate the lower bed at all making a cozy play nook for your kid. Interested how to do that? Look at the pics below!
Remembering that “wood comes from trees” is the reigning motto of new Spanish furniture brand, Ventura.

They pull from old traditions when designing the furniture, but with a contemporary twist. Because everything is made in-house, these customized wood pieces are also affordable. This furniture collection is mid-century modern with a cool fresh twist, natural wooden colors are highlighted with bright accents, inserts and fabrics.
Although it measures only 42 square meters, this apartment by Studio Space4life has a really fresh interior design and a lot of elements that help it look and feel spacious and airy. Given the fact that it’s a small apartment, the designers opted for two platforms, one of them is an extension of the window sill, forming a hybrid comprised of a workstation, a sleeping surface and a dresser. The second platform accommodates the main sleeping area. It features deep drawers underneath which are perfect for storing seasonal items, clothes and a variety of other things. Light colors were chosen for the walls and the floor. There are, however, two accent walls: one is textured with a whitewashed brick pattern and the other is darker simulating concrete. What an eye-catching design!
