Recycled Victorian Chair!

Created from 5PLY corrugated boards made with recycled paper, the Victorian Chair-Eco Remix is unique AND eco-friendly. Designed by Prasanna Sankhe, of HYPHEN, this black and white cardboard chair is simple, classic and funky all at the same time. Surprisingly, the chair will support 260 pounds and, as far as Victorian chairs go, is pretty inexpensive. Check it out!(photos from freshome) – Unique Furniture and Accessories for the Eclectic,…

Barn Doors!

In yesterdays post, I mentioned how the use of barn doors in home decor is popping up more and more! They are being used for all sorts of things. Give them a distressed look, shine them up to look new or in some cases, just make your own “barn door”.

Ex-Cement Factory = Gorgeous House??

I don’t think that many of us would include an old cement factory on our list of places we would want to make our home. That being said, you may change your mind after seeing this one. Spanish architect, Ricardo Bofill, was so inspired by one ex-cement factory that he decided to turn it into his home and offices. Have a look —-(all photos from Elle Decor)  The Central Hall.…

Concrete and Rubber United!!

The words, concrete and rubber are not often put together in the same sentence. I don’t think that I have ever heard of them being put together to make a light fixture either…. UNTIL NOW! Renate Vos’s Concrete Bin pendant lamp is made mostly of concrete and has a thin silicone rubber border. Truly unique and inventive.(all photos from design milk) – Unique Furniture and Accessories for the Eclectic,…

Beautiful Inside and Out!!

The Dorsey Residence (by Coates Design) is an excellent mix of clean lines and simple on the outside and energetic and funky on the inside. I love the variety of textures and “ingredients” (concrete, bamboo, laminate, steel) used in the creation of this Washington State home. The gorgeous surrounding landscape is the cherry on top!(all photos from Contemporist) – Unique Furniture and Accessories for the Eclectic, Modern Lifestyle.
