Shelterness

If you have an old watch and don?t know how to turn it into a cool vintage accessory, here?s a brilliant idea! The supplies are thread and needle, a sewing machine, a watch, lace, scissors, clips for ribbon, a chain with a snap.

Tiny NYC Apartment Renovation Full of Nooks and Cubbies by Tim Seggerman

Design Milk

How do you make a tiny New York City apartment into a livable 240-square foot space with a sleeping loft? You enlist the help of Brooklyn architect Tim Seggerman, who renovated this Upper West Side brownstone studio into what it is today. The space was in poor shape to begin with so they incorporated blond woods to build the interior out, including the loft over the kitchen. A nook creates a cu

Architectural Artwork by Ben Kafton

These screenprints by Ben Kafton are really fantastic explorations of drafting. Consisting of basic shapes on various planes and disconnected overlapping volumes, they dont seem to convey any particular building or structure, but just hint at the building blocks of architecture. Drawing and drafting seems like an old school architecture practice these days, but I love that these prints remind us

If Ive learned anything from studying the Decorative Arts, its that the most functional objects are often the most beautiful. Whether its a Peter Behrens daylight factory or a De Stijl chair, objects that are reduced to their most essential, elemental forms show the artistry of their construction and the inherent beauty of bare materials. If the object works well, thats a beautiful thing in itsel
