I never thought that Swedish designers have a different designing style when it comes to furniture designs until I see this one of a kind Parlan Bank. Made from turned solid ash, the Parlan bench looks very catchy and I find it a perfect contrast to the usual sleek and minimalistic furniture pieces we have at home. I wish I could sit on it with soft cushions at the design looks like will have a massage effect on my behind and will surely hurt when sitting in longer hours. Other than that, this bench looks perfect for a lobby and even in a living room.
Upon seeing a minimalistic furniture design, elegance always comes first to our minds. The Tube Chair by Kibisi is just one eye-catching minimalistic chair that will definitely creates a new look to every modern homes of today. Made from a combination of aluminum and wood, the tube chair is designed for Chay and is not only stylish and elegant, this one of a kind chair is also a space saver, for it can be easily stackable when not in use. Shown at the Maison et Object 2010, the tube chair has a clean look from whichever angle you may wish to view even if your will have a view from underneath. -via
Japanese crafts are really sleek and elegant. To give you a right example of it, look on this wonderful creation of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec called the Wajima Double Lunch Tray, a sleek contemporary tableware designed for Japan Brand. If you find its design sleek and beautiful, the siblings are using the Japanese traditional craft techniques in creating this product. Showing the beauty of a reflecting lacquer, the Double Lunch tray is part of the Wajima collection. Other products include a lamp, a desk lamp, and a pocket mirror. All have elegant and sleek designs. Using the double lunch tray in your table will definitely creates an elegant meal atmosphere. -via
