The Danes were greatly influenced by Germany’s Bauhaus movement in the early part of the twentieth century.

The proportions of the M-Coffee Table are determined by Le Corbusier ‘s modular man and the Golden Section. This table is a study in scale; conceived as a basic rectangular mass hollowed out to create architectural details at key points. Steps are carved from one corner and on the other is a ‘space’ which creates a recess for books and art objects. An oculus was carved into the ‘ceiling’ of this ‘space,’ bringing illumination, like a miniature Pantheon, to its interior. The M-Coffee Table features steps for the display of items, a book niche, and removable glass components recessed on the surface of the table.
These pictures by Christian Theile will certainly change your mind if you ever thought staircases were boring. While working in the field of neurobiology, Theile was drawn to the world of photography, landscapes and macro photography. But in his staircase photos, his passion (and talent) for capturing architecture is obvious: taken from above and below, his carefully composed pictures of swirls, lines and curves make us admire the elegance of something so ordinary. Since staircases are often concealed, each position has to be researched and the required permits sought.

Toilet plungers are not something we tend to discuss. But, for sure, we want them to work and we sure hope there’s one accessible if we—horror!—happen to need one in someone else’s bathroom. (By the way, this post has some great tips for how to unclog a toilet, should you find yourself without a plunger).
Modern geometric wallpapers give a light-hearted air to the living room, bedroom or guest room. Choosing a classy geometric wallpaper in black, blue, and silver looks great in a bathroom. Wallpaper adds a dimension that a plain coat of paint cannot. Rooms without a lot of soft surfaces – dining rooms and bathrooms, for example, wallpapers add a softness and a layering effect.
From standing desks to open office plans, our modern workspaces have deep historical roots.
The coronavirus pandemic has forced most people to create an office space of their own—whether by devoting a room in their homes for work, sitting socially distanced in common areas, or just creating a “Zoom worthy” corner in a bedroom.

Snug as a bug in a rug… But where does one even put that rug? I’ve had a decade-long obsession with how rugs improve and basically make a room. Even a cheap as chips rug can tie a whole room together. But something that I’ve learnt in more recent years is that when it comes to rugs, there are rules.
Along with amateur bakers and say, amateur fashion tie dyers, one particular at-home persona has emerged amid the pandemic: amateur home designers. As we all collectively spend more time at home due to quarantine guidelines, more and more people have taken it upon themselves to redecorate their apartments and homes.
When I saw the pictures of this apartment I immediately knew who the designer was, because only one person could make an apartment this small look this good. Parisian designer Marianne Evennou specializes in turning tiny apartments into tiny, perfect jewel boxes, and this little space, measuring a mere 18 square meters (or 194 square feet) is no exception.
w181 Linier is a minimalist pendant created by Berlin-based designer Dirk Winkel for Wästberg . The w181 linier is a pendant luminaire that appears like a linear lamp at first sight, but its geometrically strict and minimalistic body actually houses a series of 256 ultra tight-packed individual optical systems, utilising a deep-recessed long linear lens with spot characteristics and separated glare-protection compartments.
We have had a lot of Danish design recently, so it’s no surprise that we turn to Louise Campbell’s work. Born in Copenhagen to a Danish father and an English mother, Campbell inherited a ” combination of Scandinavian rationalism and femininity, ” which can be seen in its design of furniture and objects that emphasise functionality, material technology and complex forms.
Finding room divider ideas that are just as stylish as they are functional, is often easier said than done. But, if you live in an open place space, maybe it’s a studio apartment or perhaps you have a kitchen and living room in one situation going on, you will know the importance of creating ‘zones’ (rooms within rooms).
As if Kmart Australia wasn’t painful enough, we Americans have yet another reason to envy folks in other parts of the world.
