Take a Seat!

Listen. If anyone loves sitting around, it's me. So why not make a post about some funky chairs that I have found? When I went on my chair search, I wasn't necessarily looking for patterns---I was more interested in the design of the chair itself. Here are some of the chairs that I found to be interesting.

Chair One: This is an interesting chair, though I question the level of comfort it provides for its user. It reminds me of an explosion.

Chair Two: Very industrial, very city. I'm quite sure this is less comfortable than the previous chair but fun nonetheless.

Chair Three: I don't love these chairs but I find them interesting. I think they're comparable to gaming chairs. I wouldn't mind trying one out to see how sturdy it is but it actually looks pretty comfortable.

Chair Four: I actually love these chairs and I can picture them in a few places. They'd make great bar seating or fun chairs for a table in a hang-out/gaming room.

Chair Five: This is an "anti-gravity" chair. It looks very comfortable and I love that it can be used in a variety of ways. It's available in different colors and appears to be very functional.

Chair Six: This is, by far, my favorite chair. I love how sleek it is and this is definitely something I would purchase for my home. I love the lines and the curvature of the piece and that it has a little light at the top. I have never seen anything like this before and I definitely would take it in a heart beat.

I love light. My grandmother's living room is always a room of gloom. Well, to be fair, she's quite penurious, so her rooms always have the bare minimum in terms of lighting. (Read: I can't see anything.) I thought I would share some interesting lamps that I have found. I have to say that I was quite disappointed on my search. I felt like when I was looking over the bookcases, there were so many that I thought were funky that I didn't even post. I am thinking I might have to rethink my stance and design funky lamps instead.

Lamp One: I must have some sort of penchant for appendages if you recall the bookshelves I posted in my previous entry. These might be the most adorable lamps I have ever laid my eyes on and they're quite pleasant. They're very simple with clean lines, something I am a fan of, yet they are clearly different from anything else I've ever seen.

Lamp Two: I wouldn't say that I love this and I probably wouldn't purchase it myself if given the opportunity but I can appreciate it's appeal nonetheless. This is really for someone who appreciates the curvature of a piece. What I like about it is that it is quite different from the standard lamp.

Lamp Three: I find myself quite ambivalent about this piece. While I find it intriguing and pleasing to look at, I find it difficult to imagine where I would place this in my home. I am thinking that I would use this in an office space or when I'm rich enough to purchase my highly industrialized condo.

Lamps Four & Five: Two different takes I found on the same game. These Pac Man lamps are fun. I think they'd be great in a kids room but more awesome in the game room that I do not have. I like that they stayed with the simplicity of the characters themselves.

Lamp Six: This lamp is simple yet elegant. I love how ramified this piece looks without appearing too chaotic. This is definitely a piece that can make an appearance anywhere in your home.

Bookcases Galore!

I love bookcases. Period. And I don't even read!

Just kidding. I read sometimes but bookcases should be more about book storage. Bookcases can be gorgeous pieces of art. They can be interesting, thought-provoking pieces that bring life to your room. And I am all about the funk. Here are some pieces I found interesting.

Bookcase One: I love this. To me, this is whimsical. This is fun. This is what design is all about. It's creative, it's different and yet, it's functional. You could even change the pieces up for your liking while maintaining the original concept.

Bookcase Two: I just find this amazing---the fluidity, the functionality, the creativity. I love the idea of an area to sit or lounge on, without taking away from the space. In fact, I love this so much, I'd keep the pseudo-skeleton model as an art piece.

Bookcase Three: This maze-inspired bookcase makes me think that someone just pushed a giant maze onto its side and thought, "Hey, I can use this for some storage." It's fun for the riddlers out there.

Bookcase Four: This one is for the gamers. These Tetris-inspired blocks are stackable, which means whenever you're bored, you can change these up to change up the look of your room.

Bookcase Five: Warning: This is not for those of you that are claustrophobic. This might be for those of you who miss that feeling of being in a womb. This nifty bookcase provides not only ample storage space but a comfortable place for you to relax.

Lastly, this is not a bookcase but the most adorable bookshelves I have ever seen. I love this. I want this. And I will find it.


Writing. That's what I do. I write.

However, I do not write about interior design for a living. My writing is very technical in nature. But this is not the purpose of this blog. The purpose of this blog is for me to display and discuss the myriad of things I find aesthetically pleasing. I love interior design. And as much as I love interior design, I love things. Things are what often make the room. Things are what catch the attention of you or I. I love things that are different. I love anything with a sense of funk. I'm not too out there but I love seeing different things. When something evokes a sense of "I've never seen this before" or "How did someone come up with this?" it is almost enlightening.

I'm hoping to showcase pieces that I find interesting. Most of the writing I do isn't what people consider "fun" and I would like to write about something that many people find interesting.
