Imagining a private, comforting space that would construct a semi-barrier between human and the surrounding space, Kyle Fleet, student at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, teamed up with well-known company Herman Miller to produce an interesting rocking chair design. ThePrivate Rocker showcases a closed design, that protects your activities from outside interference. An association of wood, leather and wool fabric resulted in creating a simple, sturdy and comfortable rocking chair perfect to use whenever you need a break from all the noise and static surroundings. The rocking movement soothes the mind, while the clean modern design visually capture your interest. Available together with an ottoman that allows easy reclining, Kyle Fleet’s Private Rocker is described as affording “visual and acoustic privacy for a variety of restful postures“. Do you have a rocking chair that helps you unwind after a stressful day?
Most people have closets in their homes these days, but sometimes there’s always that need for the stuff that just doesn’t fit or belong in there. Check out this great use of an armoire to hang coats, store outerwear, and even provide a little bench area! Perfect for any entryway or mudroom. If you have a bathroom that fits one, an armoire is a beautiful way to add more storage — especially for towels. Like some of the others on this list, this armoire from Enchanted Home does away with the glass and replaces it with netting instead.
The String shelf system was designed in 1949 by the swedish architect and designer Nils Strinning. Easy to assemble and reposition, this well-formed system, with its ingenious design, is stable and functional. String® is available in several formats: the classic system, plex (launched in 1953), pocket (2005) and works (2014). The SH05 Arie shelf was designed by Arik Levy in 2008 for E15. The clever design enables a multitude of seamless combinations, made possible without any obvious visual repetition. Arie functions well as a bookcase, room divider, sideboard or storage unit.
