What's Your Pleasure, Shelving Or Desk?

What’s Your Pleasure, Shelving Or Desk?

When we go out and buy that big piece of furniture, we usually know exactly what it’s for. However, what if that piece of furniture could be reinterpreted differently by people. Take for instance this design by Yoon-Zee Kim. To one person it may simple be funky shelving. To another, it’s seating and a desk. Take a look around at your stuff. Do you see other uses for them?

Oh Jimmy Choo Display That Shoe

Oh Jimmy Choo Display That Shoe

$400 for a pair of Chimmy Choo’s, $150 for some Air Jordan’s, and $900 for some Gucci’s. Seriously, at these prices they do not deserved to be shoved into a closet. These things need to be displayed.

Perfect for kicking shoes off or slinging clothes over, G-Force is the quintessential wardrobe chair. At 36″ tall, this fiberglass chair is lightweight, sturdy, and super sleek. Its irregular organic shape stems from the idea of malleable materials being exposed to extreme g-forces. Of course we know it’ll end up as a place to leave your clothing on which is why the “head” is perfect for hanging a coat.

Roll 'Em Up

Roll ‘Em Up

You’re out with friends in a cafe and the tables only set 3 when there are 5 of you. What to do? You could sit separately or try and merge two tables together but on an emotional level, there’s a disconnect because you’re “not at the same table”.
