Versatile Proplamp That Can Hold Any Shape

Mon, Sep 8, 2014 | Lamps

Designer Erwin Zwiers is always experimenting with new materials, and she came across a multifunctional non woven plastic, which was ideal for designing a light. That’s how she create the Proplamp, which you can crumple as often as you like, as the biodegradable non woven material is made of will hold its new shape. Led lamp designer Margje Teeuwen helped to realize the idea. I think that this is a really modern concept of a lighting feature, kind of a lamp of the future. Each lamp is pre-shaped by Margje and Erwin, but the unique features of the material allow the lamp to be reshaped over and over again, by the new owner.

Sweet Tooth Twist: Playful Confetti Credenza

Fri, Sep 5, 2014 | Sideboards

Do you have a sweet tooth like me? If yes, you’ll be just excited with this credenza! Its design reminds of sweets like no other! Lying somewhere between a dot and a line, the confetti marquetry pattern on this credenza bestows a playful quality to a serious piece. I love the contrast of the light wood and dark patterns and hardware, it looks very eye-catching. The door and drawer fronts use solid and veneered maple; hardware and base are blackened steel. The design is kind of a fresh approach to mid-century modern furniture, with a twist. Such a playful and whimsy piece will be a compliment for any modern interior.


Modern Attic Loft With An Inside Balcony For Storage

Fri, Sep 5, 2014 | Modern home designs

This attic loft in Moscow, Russia, is a nice example of how to create an eclectic and budget-friendly interior. First, the owners wanted to visually expand the space, so they used lots of white color for wall and ceiling décor, and for furniture. The splashes of colors like red or pink are few not to clutter the space; a real working fireplace makes the loft cozier. As the ceilings are very high, the designers decided to add kind of a balcony as the second floor; now it’s used as a storage space for everything. Another cool and trendy storage solution here is a rail in the bedroom zone. Lots of furniture was bought from IKEA as it’s rather simple and fits any modern space like no other.

Fri, Sep 5, 2014 | Chairs

Silvia Ceñal has build a chair named Bi Silla for the manufacturer Two Six. It’s a simple and modern colorful chair, which can be adapted to different spaces due to its symmetry. The piece is rather simple in itself: a light wooden base upholstered with fine fabric. The chair is covered with exceptional fabric and soft cushions, and what I like most is the color schemes – they are so bright and cheerful! The chair is great for any spaces, from a hallway to a bedroom, and for many styles, from mid-century modern to minimalist.


Mid-Century Modern Residence With A Perforated Brick Wall

Thu, Sep 4, 2014 | Mid-century home designs

Internal lighting glows through the perforated brick wall of this Melbourne home by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects, which was designed as an abstraction of a typical Victorian-era residence. Perforated bricks backed with opaque glazing create glowing sections at night, while black steel grating allows passersby to catch glimpses of the kitchen and TV room. The ground floor provides the primary residence for the owners, engaging both with the street and garden, while the upper level provides flexible living areas and bedroom spaces for their children, visitors and grandchildren. The interiors are modern, eye-catching and with warm mid-century furniture and touches. Looks very inviting, doesn’t it?

Smink Tiles Made Using Wabi-Sabi Principles

Thu, Sep 4, 2014 | Ceramic tiles

Dutch designer Marianne Smink translates the welcome imperfections of hand-stamped and brush-painted designs in her screen-printed tiles. Smink’s tiles all fall under Japanese wabi-sabi principles —with a Dutch edge. The Quarter Circle tiles feature the simple but sharp outline of a quarter circle, only subtly visible against a loosely painted background. Together the quarters enhance each other and emerge from the square tiles, starting a circular life of their own. The tiles are available in two colorways: hues of tangerine and a teal that varies from green to blue tints. The After Lowry tiles are abstractions directly inspired by English painter L.S. Lowry’s depictions of northern England’s industrial landscapes. The Going Overground design applies London’s above-ground colors to a tile associated with the underground.
