If you were on the lookout for some playful storage units for your children’s room, here is an idea. Created by OOO My Design and discovered on Furnishh!, Pin Press in an unusual method to keep your kids occupied. The rods that come with the product slide in and out, which makes storing books and toys fun. According to the designers’ description, “Pin Pres is a kid’s room shelf that makes the act of sorting up the room a playful experience where the shelf adopts its form to the toys, books and other things that are being stored. It is the only shelf that will make your kid actually want to clean up and declutter the room!” While I do not necessarily agree with the last part (because we published quite a few storage ideas that make children want to clean up), I like the creativity invested in this design, its crazy appearance, as well as the energy it inspires. Find it practical?
Vega Architecture’s design for the Busch Home in Lakewood, CO is a wonderful example of how a sunken living room can still maintain a sleek, modern look. By keeping the depth of the pit fairly shallow and using furniture with clean, wooden lines, the space still feels light and airy. A pop of warm, lighter colored carpeting also creates a nice texture change when paired with the harder but more durable tile used on the higher level. When Amber Flooring installed their engineered prefinished square edge Stilnovo-Afrormosia planks throughout the Los Gatos home, they didn’t forget the living area’s conversation pit. Now the space is lined with the warm material, making it the perfect spot to curl up around the fireplace.
