Bookshelves + Staircase = Bookstairs

Bookshelves + Staircase = Bookstairs
I am so enthralled by these that I just might build some bookstairs that lead to nothing in my pad. This beauty belongs to London-based Veronika and Sebastian. My only addition would be a space to keep a pillow or two so I can sit and read on the stairs if I feel so inclined. P.S. Here are 19 other unique bookshelf ideas. {Images via Creative Cloud}

Hanging Furniture: Modular Wall Sofa, Shelving & Storage Inspired by mountains – and perhaps the hanging lodgings of mountain climbing campers – this modular wall couch-and-bed idea is designed to be a flexible, modular and custom seating solution that allows users to create and construct their own conceptual interior ‘landscapes’ for sitting on or laying down in. Wall-suspended polygons are at the structural core of this sofa design by Nicole Losos, layered with cloth to provide essential support and with added pillows and cushions to create comfortable zones and areas. Impromptu storage areas and shelving units also emerge in the eccentric intersections of this example. The additive nature of the idea is perhaps the most engaging: it invites people to interact with and expand this strange suspended wall furniture over time, installing lamps, audio equipment and other amenities over time – a kind of living, growing and evolving interior design object.

This Coke Bottle It's pretty ballsy to redesign one of the planet's most iconic shapes and completely blow it out of the water. Last we checked, Coke's bottles were some of the most recognizable objects on earth, and so powerful when it came to branding that in 2008, Coke transformed the capsule-like two-liter bottle into the same sexy curves. But dare we say design student Andrew Kim has created a concept that's equally powerful, all in the name of sustainability. Kim has taken inspiration from companies like Fiji, whose squared-off bottles use shipping space more efficiently, but he also creates the ability for these bottles to be nested, saving space both horizontally and vertically. He also proposes a collapsible, accordion-like action for the bottles after they're used, saving space when being transported to the recycling center. He does have a point: Those curvy bottles don't flatten so well, adding bulk in the blue bin. [Andrew Kim]

My Flour/Sugar Drawers | Pioneer Woman Home & Garden I posted this in the cooking section of my website, back before this Home and Garden section existed. It’s buried deep in the annals of PW Cooks, so I thought I’d bring it over here to its rightful place. This remains one of my favorite features in our kitchen. When Marlboro Man and I kicked his parents out of their house on the ranch so we could live there instead I didn’t want to do a thing to the house. It was 30 years old, lived in, exceedingly comfortable, and I loved everything about it. The ceilings needed a fresh coat of paint, though, so after his parents moved out of the house and into their house in town, we decided to have it painted before we moved in. We’ve always planned things well in advance. Not. And okay, we didn’t kick Marlboro Man’s parents to the curb. I asked my mother-in-law to help me figure out the design of the new kitchen because she’s good at that type of thing and she’d lived in the house for thirty years and knew all about the air and the light there.

Unique Wineglass Posted on December 28, 2009 by saya Uh…who would ever suppose that the odd item is actually a wineglass? And what is more surprising is that the wine doesn’t spill out at all. You know why? Check the pictures below, and you’ll find that’s due to the equivalent atmospheric pressure inside the left spherical vessel and the glass on the right. Designer: Kyouei Design The Infinity Room With this immersive installation, French artist Serge Salat invites visitors to take a journey through endless layers of space, decked out with cubic shapes, panels of mirrors, shifting lights and music. “Beyond Infinity” is a multi-sensory, multimedia experience that blends Eastern Chinese with Western Renaissance. Inspired by the Suzhou Gardens, a masterpiece of Chinese landscape, the three-lined trigram of I Ching is the main pattern that organizes the space of the work. Salat uses mirrors as optical illusions, exploding a single room into spatial infinity. via [Architizer] Views: 422998 Tags: Serge Salat, The Infinity Room, architecture, design

Conversation Starter Appetizer Plates Set of 4 by customsepia Calling All Oil Sheiks: Here's the $160 Million Floating Island of Your Dreams Wally--a company that makes stunning modern yachts--and the French fashion house Hermes have teamed up to design a new boat: The appropriately named WHY, a full-blown solar-powered island. Just unveiled at the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show (of course), the WHY is 190 feet long and a whopping 125 feet wide--making it a dream for any billionaire who can't find enough space off land for his phalanx of Cristal-swigging bikini babes. In all, the boat has the square footage of a mansion--some 34,000 square feet. As Wally's president, Luca Bassani Antivari, explained it to The Guardian: Everybody's dream is to live on an island, in complete freedom, without constraint, with the independence that only self sufficiency can provide. Right you are! The boat is meant to cater to 12 guests, with "master space", "guest space" and "common space." [The Guardian via Space Invading]
