Spotted on Likecool.com, the Dog House Sofa, designed by “min n mun“ is a fantastic piece of furnishing, ideal for you and your pet. All you have to do is relax and enjoy a tidy home, without worrying that your dog will turn the house upside down. Enhancing the connection between the man and his best small companion, the designer came up with the brilliant idea that allows them to better share emotions and communicate in a way they never did before.The Dog House Sofa is a modern couch, made of ash wood and comfy fabrics, that catches your dog’s interest in a second.
By combining a sofa concept with a dog house, the artist wanted to raise the awareness of how important it is to live harmonically, pointing out on the fact that the living space is not only destined for humans. Since his cute little house comes attached to the sofa, he will no longer sneak under it, looking for your attention. The nice thing is that the designer humanized the pet’s furnishing as much as possible. By blending together the two elements, the sofa and the dog house, he created a linking point between the dog and his master. The functional design allows you to use the top of the dog’s house as a coffee table.
Most people have closets in their homes these days, but sometimes there’s always that need for the stuff that just doesn’t fit or belong in there. Check out this great use of an armoire to hang coats, store outerwear, and even provide a little bench area! Perfect for any entryway or mudroom. If you have a bathroom that fits one, an armoire is a beautiful way to add more storage — especially for towels.

The best modular shelving systems will encourage individual expression and personal style. An investment in both design and practicality, they are something that we choose to live with (design is arguably always a choice). Famed industrial designer Dieter Rams once remarked: “I am convinced that a well-thought-out design is decisive to the quality of a product. A poorly-designed product is not only uglier than a well-designed one but it is of less value and use. Worst of all it might be intrusive.” This quote, from a speech on ‘Design by Vitsœ’ presented by Rams in New York, 1976, remains pertinent today.
