Grab It by the Handle and Move It Anywhere You Want: Carry-On Stool

Imagine having your house filled with furniture elements that you can simply grab individually by a handle and carry them from place to place. Scandinavian designer and architect Mattias Sternberg from Studio Vision A&D came up with this original design idea and applied it in creating the Carry-On Stool. You may argument that by nature, small chairs are portable. That is true, but this project comes with a fun, barrel-like appearance that would normally be harder to pick up. So the little “artifice” not only adds a special charm, but also comes in handy. Created from an upholstered textured tweed body and a natural wooden handle, the stool is fresh and original-looking, making it a good addition for a contemporary living space or for the children’s room. Where would you place it?

Old Garage Turned Into Fabulous Home (Knott Architects, UK)

Chances are that you wouldn’t believe this  functional and chic little home was once a garage. Owned by Darren Issac and located in Camden, UK, the bright and beautiful house was designed by Knott Architects to perfectly use every inch of space so that it looks much larger than it actually is.

Downstairs there’s a bedroom and a wetroom nicely separated by glass screens and a large wardrobe that also acts as a divider. A small office room adds to the charm, and not only overlooks the street but proves just as useful as it doubles up as a guest bedroom whenever needed.

Fascinating Black Pearl Studio in Rotterdam

The aptly named Black Pearl Studio is an ambitious complete renovation by Studio Rolf.fr and Zecc Architecten. This incredible interior design has a lot of inspiration to offer those who have a desire to delve in to the details.

The interior is distinctly industrial, but the furnishings (some of which are by Studio Rolf.fr) are a wonderfully unconventional mix of contemporary minimalism and rough rustic whimsy. One unique feature after another serves to delight the imagination – a hot tub on the roof, surprising textures on select ceilings, and a full workshop on the ground floor. The home decor seems strongly inspired by the spirit of sculpture.
