The Tiny Apartment With The Elevator Bed??

“YO! Home” is a 40-square-meter (430 sq. ft.) studio apartment prototype that allows a small multi-functional space to feel like a larger home. The bed and the dining table can be hidden when not in use.  The apartment unit is built in a factory modularly. The modulars then can be put together on-site. There are four moving functional features – the bed, the dining table, the pocket kitchen and floor storage. The Bed is lowered from the ceiling and can be raised all the way to the top. It has fail-safe sensors to prevent it from moving if someone is on it or under it. The Dining Table is sinkable with the back of the seat-backs serving as the floor. The Pocket Kitchen can be neatly folded away into the walls. It includes a washing machine, cooker, sink, and storage space. Floor Storage is hidden under a false floor, unnoticeable when not in use.

The Volcanic Rock Sofa From Peugeot.


Peugeot Design Lab is set to make its furniture collection debut next week at Milan Design Week, with a sofa made from volcanic rock.  The group will use the city’s creative Tortona district to unveil Onyx, a three meter-long seat made of carbon fiber and Volvic volcanic lava stone. It is the first piece from the group’s new made-to-measure interiors concept collection.  The hand-carved sofa follows the release of the Peugeot Onyx trio in 2012, which comprised a superbike, supertrike and a supercar which combined the latest technology with raw materials.


“At Milan, with the Onyx sofa, we are drawing a thread between the ONYX concept car, an alliance of efficiency and the use of audacious and natural materials, and the ONYX sofa,” said Gilles Vidal, Peugeot Styling Director.  A series of lamps, shelves, armchairs and tables will be on display alongside the sofa. Each piece explores a variety of materials including concrete, red ferrous Jasper, steel, quartz crystal, aluminum and sculpted wood.  The Onyx sofa is priced at €135,000, with prices for other material combinations upon request.


Sexy Seating.

I’ll do my best to not sound pornographic when describing this design, but the truth is that this is one sexy piece. The JOKI bench’s curves have a sensual aesthetic that is also functional as it contours the human body perfectly. The fluid shape was carefully planned so the modular pieces can be recombined to align perfectly no matter which ends you combine.

Bright Woods, The LED Stool Collection.

Unique and eye-catching, Bright Woods’ collection of illuminated chairs and coffee tables are sure to capture your attention with their engaging glow. I discovered this dope collection of furniture at Milan Design Week, and we’re enamored with the unique aesthetic that’s equal parts alien nation and woodland tranquility. These radiant pieces, made from wood and natural resin strips, were designed by Giancarlo Zema for the Avanzini Group and are currently on display at the Design in Nature exhibition in the Triennale Design Museum as part of the Milan Furniture Fair.

Sittin On Louis Vuitton.

I have some friends who are quite obsessed with high class style. As soon as I came across these Louis V couches, I knew I had to put it up for them. Designed by Jason Phillips and manufactured by Phillips Collection, these Louis Vuitton sofas are available in classic LV prints, Murakami and Classic Monogram. The limited-edition collection is made from repurposed fabrics and can be supplemented with cushions for each model. As for the price… lets just say their expensive.
