Faux pebble rug designed by Ksenia Movafagh is made from 100% wool smartly turned into the appearance of pebbles. The rug does adequately mirror the looks of pebbles you’d expect to find around the shore, but we’re not sure if it will continue to keep its looks as the time passes.
Shape Changing Lamps from N&N are more than just towers showing off bricks, and since the name leaves no suspense, I’ll just go on to the dramatic side and say these lamps change shape. It isn’t so much wizardry, but just the 360-degree rotatable shades at work. The shades are made from injected polycarbonate with translucent white panels, and together with aluminum frames, they give the lamps great looks. N&N has put three lamps in the series, named Magna, Opus and Tempo.

Creativity and ingenuity can go a long way, especially when you are considering the best use of available space. A client approached Yuko Shibata to have a meeting room and library added to his tiny apartment. Clearly, space was at a premium and no more could be added, therefore Shibata went with sliding walls to turn the place around. A pivoting bookshelf-wall turns the bedroom into a library, and a sliding wall in the dining room can shift from side to side to create the workspace/meeting room. Shibata has named the design “Switch.”
A couple in Kyloe, Northumberland, purchased an old church and converted it into their home. The holy-house still has the stained-glass windows that provide it with ample natural lighting. The house has five bedrooms and has been created out of a Georgian church. The church was purchased for £92,000 (about $143,615), and they spent another £300,000 ($465,000) on renovations.

Long before electric supply came into being, people had such bladeless fans installed. Well, that is if they could afford to hire a person who would constantly pull a rope to set the cloth in motion. Electricity and ceiling fans made such contraptions obsolete, but then the world never tires of old world glory. The LoftWing is the same thing, with a modern functioning. This fan is built out of lightweight 6061 aircraft aluminum, and has an electric motor so you won’t have to tug at the rope. And it does look quite cool. It has the words “Price available on request” written, which is a way to say that this will be very expensive.
