By completely renegading the idea of conformity, designer Robert van Embricqs created an elegant table, that breaks the pattern of flat table tops on four legs. The result is a surprising mixture of fluid design that “blends the multifaceted tabletop with the latticework of wooden beams that function as the center of the construct. From there, the table sprouts four wooden beams that hold up the entire construct“.
Rising Table is the consequence of closely studying the transformations which occur in nature, without the participation of men: “This inspired the incision pattern in the flat surface of the wood that resulted into the creation of a latticework of woven wooden beams that make up the center of the table. By emphasizing nature’s logic, a seemingly random collection of wooden beams organically merges to form the figuratively beating heart of the Rising Table“. Find its design original?
An antique armoire can bring a sense of timeless elegance to any home, but not everyone can find a proper use for one — not to mention sufficient space too! In the old days they were used to store clothing and linens back when bedrooms didn’t have closets, and today some people use them to hold their televisions — but that trend perhaps isn’t as big of a deal as it once was now that TV screens are so flat and compact. You just need to have a look around at all your stuff and see what needs a storage area of its own! Here are some great ideas that might pique your interest.
You can never have enough storage in the kitchen. If you lack cabinet space but have just enough room along an area of a wall, an armoire can serve as a wonderful pantry. Check out this great example from Decoholic. Alternatively, you could use the same idea as above, but for coffee instead. Ever Evolving Life 4-5 shows the complete transformation this armoire went through to become a cute little coffee bar.
