Long and fluffy as a winter day, this highly creative chair designed by Alexandra Kehayoglu and Maxi Ciovich is special furniture piece with the odd ability to trigger memories. Its wooden arms are covered in woven wool which seems to spill over the surface of the chair, forming a soft carpet. Despite the resemblance with a beach lounge chair, the wooden strips make up a sturdy support, perfectly fit for those long evenings by the fireplace.

Practicability was not the main focus of the designers: “We discovered that design can act as a tool for art. In this case: a frame in which a textile piece lies along. This is a chair that can be used. It offers an experience. Almost like a performance, the spectator can situate himself either inside or outside. One has the possibility of submerging into the chair’s landscape, or that of remaining outside.” What are your thoughts on this unusual armchair?

The best modular shelving systems will encourage individual expression and personal style. An investment in both design and practicality, they are something that we choose to live with (design is arguably always a choice). Famed industrial designer Dieter Rams once remarked: “I am convinced that a well-thought-out design is decisive to the quality of a product. A poorly-designed product is not only uglier than a well-designed one but it is of less value and use. Worst of all it might be intrusive.” This quote, from a speech on ‘Design by Vitsœ’ presented by Rams in New York, 1976, remains pertinent today.

Hobbyists often have lots of stuff that require lots of storage room that’s easy to access and keep tidy. Whether it’s sewing, crafting, gardening, or something else — organization is key, and an armoire can really be the perfect solution for it. You might be surprised to find how versatile armoires can be to use in place of other pieces of furniture. Check out this desk from Apartment Therapy! Put it out of sight by closing the doors when you’re all done working. If you’re expecting, an armoire can be a clever use of a changing table. And when baby is all grown up, you’ll have the opportunity to find another use for your armoire. An old armoire works just as well as a regular bookcase — if not better for the unique look you get. Check out how these home owners replaced the glass doors with netting to show off their book collection.
