The wood houses always create warm and elegant atmosphere, they look cozier than the houses made of brick or steel. Wood house made of solid wood stands for versatility, strength and high quality. Have a look at this linear wooden house constructed by Steven Holl who got the inspiration of the close proximity to the studio of the painter Jackson Pollock. This residence may look a bit transparent due to its design. However it is closed at the south side to provide the privacy to the inhabitants while opening up the interior to the bay and the north view of the Atlantic Ocean. Strips of the sunlight get into the house and bend internal area dramatically during the day. Cool house!
Who knows how J.R.R. Tolkien would have designed a motel but the Hobbit Motel in New Zealand seems to have real fantasy appeal. The strange little building with porthole-style windows and round doors is built into the side of a hill in Waitomo, a region on the North Island known for its caves and waterfalls. Created with the Lord of the Rings trilogy it is at least three times bigger than hobbit size to accommodate its regular human sized guests. The motel offers two self-contained units which include kitchens, bathrooms and can accommodate up to 6 per unit. Most of the furniture made of polystyrene blocks serves as the perfect thermal insulator keeping heat and cold out. This motel will make you believe you are in a fairy-tale!
We want to present to you an elegant and cool Spring pierced furniture collection by the Italian company Esedra. It is rather simple yet stylish. The designers used simple sheets of metal. The collection contains armchairs, tables and poufs that are either fretworked and chromed or lacquered, or upholstered in 1 or 2 colours. Each set comes in four versions: upholstered with leather in different colours, perforated with an enticing design or in the steel version for an outside garden or patio. These pieces of furniture look really fresh and creative. I guess, such as this house furnishing can be perfect for contemporary room interior decorating themes.
This whimsical and extraordinary Dancing Circle bar stool will certainly draw your attention. The designers decided to show how art can be incorporated into every piece of furniture even in such simple. Iron rings are held together and serve as the foundation of the stools.

The two variant of dimensions are available: the small one (17.5″Dia. x 20.5″T) and the barstool (18″Dia. x 30.25″T). the stool will perfectly suit the kitchen interior.
Nowadays living in harmony with nature becomes a popular trend. Nature is the source of inspiration in different branches of art. The designers often use some ideas from nature in their creations. So English designer Nigel Coates was inspired to create Animalia furniture collection for the Italian brand Fratelli Boffi. The shapes of animals occupy an important place here. You will feel yourself somewhere in savanna or desert with this collection. The furniture is suitable for living room. The idea is completed by the materials used such as natural wood frames, glass and animal skin upholstery. The collection consists of chairs, modular sofa sets, stools, "Stag" tables and a miraculous snake-inspired mirror. The entire series will be on display in Milan next month.
