The News of the World

Today, I give you odd and funky designs that are culturally inspired.First off, here is a rather unique and Asian inspired bookshelf. It's made from cardboard and is in the shape of the Yin-Yang. I love the circular idea for a bookcase.
"Cardboard Furniture." FresHome. Web. 20 July 2011. <http://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/cardboard-furniture2.jpg>.

"Sergio Chair." Elite Choice. Web. 20 July 2011. <http://elitechoice.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/sergio-chair.jpg>.
Next with Chinese inspiration, we have the Sergio chair. The yoke is highly exaggerated and the chair itself sits low to the ground. This is definitely a dramatic piece and is bound to be the focal point of a room, despite its short height.
Shangrila China. Web. 20 July 2011. <http://www.shangrilachina.com/images/slsofa/sl113hr.jpg>.
This piece is also Chinese inspired. The geometric shapes mixed with the creme and purple makes for a pleasing sight.I love the metal feet on these pieces, I feel like it ties the whole look together.

First Blog of Space Planning!

I have recently embarked on a new class. In my space planning class, I am required to update my blog with pictures that inspire me, much like my intro class did. Therefore, here are a few pictures of things that have inspired me this week.

These funky mushroom stools are rich with color and shape. I love the smooth texture of them all, which is a contrast to the bumpy mushrooms in nature. Overall, I just find this piece to be interesting and unique.

I also really love this piece. The unusual shape and form play with the eye and create harmony.
