Glass Rivers And Lakes Flow Across Beautiful Tables By Furniture Maker Greg Klassen

Glass Rivers And Lakes Flow Across Beautiful Tables By Furniture Maker Greg Klassen
Talented Washington-based artist and furniture-maker Greg Klassen’s beautiful river- and lake-like desks and tables straddle the line between furniture and art. Due to his relationship with a local sawmill, Klassen has access to pieces of raw wood, which means that he can make use of its natural forms and beautiful imperfections for his creative furniture. These organic forms lend natural power to the “rivers” and “lakes” on his tables, which are completed with custom-cut panes of glass and look much like features on a topographical map. Klassen, who has a degree in theology, writes, “I try to marry the natural beauty of the wood with the skilled craftsmanship of the maker. When the two come together, a piece can really sing!” More info: Website | Facebook | Shop (h/t: colossal)

Fascinating Lamps by Calabarte Calabarte is the pseudonym of a Polish artist named Przemek Krawczynski, whose art takes on a peculiar but incredibly beautiful form: cool lamps. The name itself is a portmanteau of two words – art (obviously), and calabash, the fruit that carries his imagination. The calabash is a bottle gourd originating in India, although Calabarte gets his supply from Senegal. Due to ancient domestication and usage, the bottle gourd has an incredibly tough outer shell. In the past, the gourd’s usage was defined mostly as a water container, due to having a tough, smooth shell with an ergonomic shape for handling, and natural buoyancy on water.

Tiny Houses That Are Cooler Than Mansions Whoever said bigger is better must have never stepped foot into one of these tiny, but totally awesome houses. That, or they had already bought a mansion and didn't keep their receipt. The houses below are really quite amazing. I was already on board with the smaller home thing when I realized there'd be less cleaning, but now that I've seen what you can do with such little space, I'm very much into it. I won't say tinier is better, since it's subjective, but smaller is definitely super!
