Bed

March 31, 2008

I also want a new bed, but I just really hate spending money on large purchases. I, however, have no problem spending money on small things. Perhaps this is why I like to think I can build (or get someone to help me build) everything I see…..

Photobucket

I just saw this bed in an apartment shown on apartmenttherapy and immediately started to think how I could make it. Especially since I just found this website that sells hairpin legs ($22 ea), and you can always get a slatted bed frame from Ikea for $50 (queen size) so now I just need to price the wood for the exposed wood sections, and consult with someone on how those hairpin legs actually support the bed because that makes me a little nervous….

Dining Room

March 31, 2008

I want a new dining room set. Something somewhat modern yet not too much so that it wouldn’t fit with my traditional house. This might do…. but I’ll probably look for a different table…not sure how I feel about the sunken centerpiece detail on this one.

Gamucci Cigarettes

March 28, 2008

I live with a smelly, stinky, second hand smoke providing smoker, so if the Gamucci cigarettes weren’t so expensive (50 pounds for one kit) this would be wonderful. He could continue to be addicted to nicotine and not kill anyone else in the process….

They are rechargeable, electric cigarettes that offers smokers a chance of smoking in a much healthier way. They still get their nicotine hit, but suffer none of the negative side effects of smoking tobacco. The product is free of tar & other carcinogenic substances. It is non-flammable and without the danger of exposing the user to the 4000 chemical substances produced by normal cigarettes. It is pollution free and harmless to others. There isn’t the danger of second hand smoke. It is reusable so there is no problem with disposing of cigarette ends and there is no ash. It comes with two rechargeable batteries and is fuelled with 5 high strength cartridges, each with 16 mg of nicotine in them which is equal to 20 cigarettes.

Hugo Daybed

March 28, 2008

I absolutely love Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Here’s an “inspired by” that’s more easy on the wallet than the real deal and the only visible difference is a slightly different shape to the pillow.

Drum Lampshades

These drum lamp shades created by London Duffy come in two designs. The lamp shades have a printed plastic interior with a black fabric exterior. With the flick of a switch, the image printed on the interior of the shade is revealed.

Float Bed

March 27, 2008

I’ve found another “floating” bed similiar to the Doze Bed I posted at the middle of the month. The lines on this one aren’t quite as nice but the price is….

Slide Faucet

March 26, 2008

The Slide Faucet has a top section that functions much the way a dimmer switch does, the more you slide the warmer the water gets.

It’s part of the collection for RVB by Alain Berteau.

Drysystem

March 26, 2008

I often think about installing tile in my house but am always deterred by how labor-some it seems (since I’m too cheap to hire someone). Now Tau has developed the Drysystem which is a new dry tile laying system which does not require the use of any kind of glue or adhesive

DrySystem® by TAU comprises a base made of a polymer which is bonded onto the ceramic tile. This base is tongued and grooved, which means that the various pieces can be assembled and slotted together seamlessly.

Kaboost

March 25, 2008

It really drives me insane that they have all these great things for kids now that my kids are too old for them.

Here’s a product called Kaboost, that takes any four legged chair that you already have and creates a booster seat.

Aroma Pill

March 25, 2008

This is the nicest looking plug-in I’ve ever seen. Also I have a problem with strong smells and this claims to be “effective without being overbearing”.

Curtain Rod

I saw this idea to make your own curtain rod from metal conduit over at shelterrific. I only wish I’d seen it before I went and bought the run of the mill curtain rod I have from Lowes.

Chaise & Tabouret

March 24, 2008

This chair has an auxiliary stool that comes out of bottom of the chair. The upper part of the stool slides without effort into a groove under the chair, with a small stop keeping the two seats together.

Scoop Quadro

March 21, 2008

Here’s a different take on the sofa bed. The Scoop connects the two sofas by a removable chrome-plated zip fastener outfitted with a hook system for the bed set-up. There are cylindrical chrome-plated legs for the fixed element and small brake wheels for the mobile element.

Herb Ladder

March 21, 2008

Every time I see a planter I think of my mother because she is obsessed with plants. The herb planter can be placed horizontally to be placed on a table if need be. I only wish you could get a larger version for house plants, then I’d have a wonderful Christmas idea…
