Shoes, Books and a Bike by Postfossil

We all have those moments when we think there’s too little space in the apartment. No matter how much we try to optimize the narrow corridor spaces, it seems like there is always something left to bump into. The “Shoes, Books and a Bike” shelf offers a unique insight into space handling. With its simple lines and narrow wooden planks it could be placed right by the door and you would not have to go back and forth round the apartment or house if you just feel like a bike ride in the park. And if you would like to stop somewhere for an enjoyable read, your favorite books are never too far away.

Hold On Tight Shelf by Colleen Whiteley

Hold On Tight Shelf by Colleen Whiteley

Either the books are too few or the shelf is too wide- you can never keep them from tumbling down like a stack of dominoes. Even if you put a heavy vase or a teddy bear up there- they can never quite stay straight just the way you want them to. This Hold On Tight Shelf can keep your reads up and tidy and you can always adjust it if you choose to expand or diminish your collection.

Blindry - turns the window blinds into an indoor laundry

Blindry - turns the window blinds into an indoor laundry

We always feel like our furniture and utensils take up too much of our living space. After development almost as old as civilization itself, we have managed to make our homes brighter, safer and more efficient than ever before. This amazingly minimalistic solution is almost self- evident. A simple rotating motion turns the window blinds into an indoor laundry drying rack where you can dry anything taking full advantage of the sunlight. When you are finished, the rack turns back into useful blinds for those afternoons when you feel like a nap.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

We must admit that every piece from the Living Kitchen by Studio Gorm makes me feel like I found the dream kitchen setup. The idea of growing, storing, cooking and composting to grow more food, straight on your kitchen plot is simply an Oscar pretender.

The Flow Kitchen developed as a flexible system where resources like waste, water and energy are reused, thus way creating a dynamic and endless flow between the natural elements.

The most creative Flow's kitchen accents are:

1. The vertical hanging dish rack, not only save space, but also waters the planter boxes with herbs and edible plants, which are growing beneath it.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

2. Composter bin, which is charged with scraps by an integrated cutting board. It's simply a genius idea to produce nutrient rich fertilizer by breaking down the waste food - it's just a bit not right to grow worm farm in your kitchen to help you out turning the food into worm castings. In about 4 to 6 weeks the fertilizer can be used in the herb boxes, added to houseplants or the garden.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

3. The storage jars are made from unglazed earthenware with beech wood lids, so they can utilize the natural porous properties of earthenware, which creates an ideal environment for maintaining the consistency of bread, extending the life of garlic and onions, storing grains and growing herbs etc.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

4. That's not all folks - you also got evaporative cooling fridge box, utensil drawer in economic and easy to access format, the gas cook offering conventional standards with elegant top in floral patterns, comfortable bag rack to hang any shopping bags.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

Flow Living Kitchen is a brilliant idea, with a practical and conventional realization. We just believe that the successful design needs a pinch of sophistication and slickness which will makes out of Flow Living Kitchen a true bestseller.

How to easy make your own designer Shuttlecock Pendant Lamp

The Brooklyn based designer Kiel Mead is vastly popular with his jewelry cleverness, quirky designs and his casual way to give new meanings to trivial objects. If you haven’t been already dazzled by his work, search for the clever Forget-Me-Not ring, which is modeled on a piece of tied string, the charmed hung casting of chewing gum or the emblematic matchstick necklaces.

Kiel Mead is from those kind of designers who doesn’t intentionally create something, but rather grows his work out of own personal obsessions and researches, on topics that electrify his interest. This is exactly the case with the Birdie Light – fascinated by the “gentlemen’s” sports, like croquet, tennis, badminton and the eloquence and poise that such activities require, Mead started to play around with the classic objects, used in such sports to finally come up with unbelievably simple and enormously cool looking Shuttlecock lamp-shade.

How to easy make your own designer Shuttlecock Pendant Lamp

Shuttlecock Pendant Lamp instructions provided by Ready Made Magazine

Ingredients and tools:

  • Goose feathered shuttlecock
  • Power drill
  • 1/2 and 1/4 drill bits
  • Candelabra socket
  • Plug
  • 15 Watt light bulb
  • 1m. lamp cord

Make it:

Start with a proper shuttlecock. The plastic ones that you and I grew up with were dumped down for modern culture – authentic birdies are made with goose feathers, which are way more appropriate for their purpose to glide back and forth through the air.
Working from the feathered end of the shuttlecock use a 1/4 bit to drill part of the way into the cork top. Use a 1/2 bit to drill the rest of the way through and thread the lamp cord through the shuttlecock. Attach the candelabra socket to one end of the cord, so that it will end up nesting inside the core of the feathers. Secure the plug to the other end. Press the socket into the cork, screw in the light bulb and hang. Resist the urge to swat.

Birdie Light is most likely to become a favorite interior companion, but it seems really hard to resist the temptation of testing your forehand on it every single time you pass close by.

Alternatively if you are not into DIY stuff you can buy the Birdie Light from The Future Perfect for the affordable $50
