San Francisco based Bushakan sent us photos and information of their solid wood eyeglass stands that hold three or pairs of glasses. According to the producers, each stand starts as one solid piece of solid FSC certified hardwood. The pockets are then carved out to create the perfect space for all shapes and sizes of eye-wear. The multi-pair stands have an extra large pocket at the bottom which will fit even the largest Hepburn frames. The stands are finished with a water-based environmentally finish that maintains the woods’ appearance while protecting and enhancing it’s beauty. For someone who easily misplaces their glasses, you have to admit this is not just an original idea, but a practical one as well. And with this elegant design, keeping your favorite glasses where you can see them all the time is no longer an issue. Have a look at the presentation video below for more information!
Vega Architecture’s design for the Busch Home in Lakewood, CO is a wonderful example of how a sunken living room can still maintain a sleek, modern look. By keeping the depth of the pit fairly shallow and using furniture with clean, wooden lines, the space still feels light and airy. A pop of warm, lighter colored carpeting also creates a nice texture change when paired with the harder but more durable tile used on the higher level. When Amber Flooring installed their engineered prefinished square edge Stilnovo-Afrormosia planks throughout the Los Gatos home, they didn’t forget the living area’s conversation pit. Now the space is lined with the warm material, making it the perfect spot to curl up around the fireplace.
