A Space Saving Murphy Bed for Your Pet

This handsome piece of furniture looks like a wall cabinet but is actually a space-saving Murphy bed for your pet. Unlike regular pet beds, this one stays out of sight until bedtime ! Personally when I’m looking at this piece of furniture I see Paris Hilton’s Chihuahua, I don’t know why, but I think that animals don’t need special furniture for them. Anyway I’ve posted this piece because it look really cool, and some of my readers might think that their pet deserve a piece of furniture like this.

Folding Flat Seat

foldingstoolIn the future, everything will be flat. Did you know? Everything will fold down into nothing. Also there will be no need for dust covers because we’ll have dust-repellant paper! But we’ll still need wood. And we can replenish our wood supply with trees. And we can replenish our flat stool supply with wood. Serdar Sişman’s made us a flat stool that’s made entirely of wood. Flat wood. Savvy?

The neat thing about this particular folding stool is that it can be folded down into a relatively flat bit of wood. It’s not thin as a piece of paper, but you can put your drinks on it. Then there’s the fact that you can make this particular stool out of a single tablet of wood, so says Serdar Sişman.

What we need now is rapid-prototyping machines that cut wood!

Solitaire Chair

The Solitaire Chairis designed by Alfredo Haberli, and is an upholstered chair with an organic shape that is designed in one piece. Alfredo Haberli thought that rather than design a chair and then designing a table to go with it, he designed the Solitaire, which is both at the same time. One of Solitaire’s armrests is like an intergral tabletop, ideal for reading, writing, or for use as a side table. I would recommend a chair like this to any modern company. In conclusion Solitaire is a low chair with a small table for writing, reading, or eating.

Coast To Coast Bookcase

When you’re a famous artist like Ron Arad, you can get away with calling an America-shaped bookcase anything you want. Even, say, “Oh, the farmer and the cowman should be friends”. It doesn’t have to make sense (though it’s likely to make Arad dollars), it just has to look good. And so it does.

Yin Yang Bookcase

As solid and strong as the above Yin Yang Bookcase may look, in truth it’s made of cardboard – and you can make one too! Eric Guiomar and the gang at Instructables provides complete plans that will allow anyone to add a little balance to their home environment while impressing the hell out of their friends in the process.

Town House Cupboard

If you would like a really unique cupboard I can assure you that the Town House Cupboardis something that will impress anyone. It is built in beech and mahogany and comes in 2 parts, the arched base and the cupboard top. It features an inlaid parquetry pattern on the floor of the base, and is crowned with an intricate balustrade on the top. This particular cupboard is made to stand against a wall, and has a paneled back, but this type of design could easily be built as a free-standing piece with all 4 facades the same.
