12 Seats for Maximum Relaxation

12 Seats for Maximum Relaxation
We’ve been known to post a perfect nap chair or two (or dozen) here on Design Milk so we thought we’d round up our favorites of nap’s past and add a few new spots to help you prepare for maximum relaxation… Let’s start with POWER’NAP. I mean, they had me at the name. Designed by Ninna Helena Olsen, this origami-like design “gently encloses your body” while looking like a work of art. Yes, please! I’m sure this sculptural chair would fit into any office. The Cradle just screams cozy, doesn’t it? The Loopita might look like a giant Hot Wheels track but I think it looks like a sleek lounge spot for two. I just want to dive into this like it was a big leaf pile, don’t you? One of our personal faves has always been the Couch Sleeper by Anne Lorenz. It looks like relaxing on a bed of squishy volleyballs, but the Feel Seating System Deluxe is made up of 120 “soft and extremely pleasant” balls. Oradaria Design came up with the Blandito®, a transformable pad for lazy living.

Wood Plank Wall DIY We recently completed a project in our bedroom (a diy wood plank wall) that has me dragging every stranger and friend into our house to show it off! The inspiration came from the walls that are inside the OC Mart Mix. We know our limits…so we knew we’d need some help on this project. First off, we headed to Lowes to purchase pine. Here’s where the contractor comes in…he and Brent cut the boards into various sizes and then he nailed them to the wall with a nail gun. We also decided to have him wire some sconces on each side. //photography by Kristin Eldridge in Long Beach 48 Comments Gifts & Decor Cotton Rope Hammock Cradle Chair with Wood Stretcher: Patio, Lawn & Garden

Space-Saving Suspended Bed in a Modern London Apartment Good urban architectural design takes space and aesthetic into account, allowing them to work in unison, much like this efficient London apartment in Camden. While some compact residences use a modular design to create the visual effect of more space, this particular English home opts to design vertically by featuring a suspended bed overhead. This innovative apartment allows inhabitants to have more walking room on the ground floor without disrupting the tastefully modern design. via [Enpundit, JJ Locations]
