Colorful Renovation Of An Old Folding Chair

Old things shouldn’t be wasted and thrown away if you can give them a second life. To renovate a usual folding chair you’ll need a screwdriver, drop cloth, spray paint (2 cans per chair), fabric, scissors, a staple gun and staples. Remove the seat and place chair on drop cloth and wipe down with damp towel. Apply two coats of spray paint and let it dry overnight. Lay out new fabric and place seat cushion face down. Trace fabric along the cushion, cut and attach it using your staple gun. As the chair dries, put the new cushion and begin using!

Gorgeous Glass House Connects With Its Surroundings Creating a Visual Spectacle

Modern architects and designers are placing as much emphasis on creating beautiful modern homes that stay connected with the environment around them at all times, as they are on sleek and stylish interiors. And in this effort to add visual space and make the exteriors a part of the house, one has seen a growing trend in employing glass extensively and expansively.

This stylish home located in Ramat Hasharon — a city on Israel’s central coastal strip in the south of the Sharon region — is all about living it up in an ultra0cool fashion. Designed by Levy-Chamizer Architects, the home does its best to ensure that the lines between the exterior and the interior are blurred by using floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

Eco Friendly Furniture by Flohr Design

 

Flohr Design makes some stylish furniture and interior products using a unique eco friendly material. It all started when Christian Reder planted some Sakhalin knotweed in his yard. The stuff grows like weeds, with tall shoots with luscious leaves. In order to keep it from soon taking over the whole yard, he had to cut a lot of it away but felt terrible about burning the tubular shoots, which happened to be very light but incredibly strong. Some experimentation led him to develop a unique material. He embedded the shoots into a mixture of cold glue and wood flour and now calls it Flohr. Looking closely at the furniture, you can see the cross sectioned material, which reveals an interesting perforated texture and pattern – giving the pieces a very unique look. And since the material has such a short regrowth period, it makes it a perfectly sustainable and eco friendly solution for furniture and other interior products. Fun stuff!
