We have received Glove chair in our inbox last week. In this design cardboard panels, originally used as bicycle packaging, are re-used. The material has been folded and sowed together to create a glove shaped chair. On the seat the original illustration of the bicycle has been kept intact to accentuate its origin. No upholstery is applied, although it might be possible.
The aim of this design is to create a modern unconventional shaped chair from a slender material. One panel is applied to create the seat while another panel is used to create the back and bearing construction. A straight unfolded panel is applied to stabilize the structure in longitudinal way. The whole construction is fixed on a base also made of cardboard.
Not very often we can find beautiful hand-made furniture pieces these days, it’s a good thing we spot these modern stools by Wood’Insane Design. Designed and developed by Renaud Dancie, these classy stools are perfect for any modern contemporary interior décor. Using recycled materials that he collects from the Bordelaises forest, each of these furniture pieces is manufactured and created by Renaud himself to ensure perfect accuracy and precision. It’s a small and young company but with big ambition, how can you not love these stools?
If you are interested, furniture from Wood’Insane Design is available in 3 designer boutiques of Bordeaux (BOB CORNER, Atelier 29 and WAN) and Hossegor (31st Avenue).
We all need to save on cost when it comes to building our furniture pieces and the Sustainable Mail Bookeand Storage Shelf by Dor Keenan is a great example of cost saving piece of furniture. Because of the earth friendly mind of young designer Dor Keenan, the mail bookeand storage shelf is created made of recycled building mailbox.
Each of the mailbox unit creates an individual space working as a functional storage for many users. With Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle as important part of his design, Israel graduate Dor Keenan was able to recycle the Plexiglas of his old mailbox and have it as the useful shelf of his creation.
A shelving system with a hexagonal design is very rare and we at IGreenSpot find the Cracked Shelf System a unique one. It has the hexagonal type 8 design that made it a unique shelving system. This shelf system will surely stand out in every home the moment they are placed alongside with those traditional shelving system with the classic horizontal or vertical design. The design of the cracked sheld created an asymmetrical look, which make it even more stylish and catchy. The shelf is made of rectangular pieces of wood modules and these modules can be combined in any formation or direction seamlessly.
If you find the design is perfect enough for the most artistic human hand, this is because from its general shape to the smallest part of the shelf, all have been designed carefully using a trusted computer software. The shelf has the 1.5 mm thick steel that serves as the connector. These steels are laser cut and folded with the help of CNC machinery.
We now have a lot of eco-friendly furniture widely available in the market, one of them is Rewrite Desk by Iannone Design. The desk is a useful piece of furniture that will fit in perfectly with the saying “old meets new”. You might wonder why it fits, simply because, the desk is a brand new furniture piece with modern design but is made of reclaimed materials. Meaning the materials used to complete the desk are old.

Space is becoming a problem for every home especially for homes in big and crowded cities, that’s why the idea of creating space saving furniture design like the Ludovico by Claudio Sibille was born.
With the Ludovico, you can definitely maximize the space in your room or home whilst maintaining your home’s contemporary and elegant interior design. The furniture’s concept is very simple. Ludovico is a storage type of furniture with four drawers in it. Within the furniture lines, the designer has custom designed two chairs that fit in it.
If you are not using the table and the two chairs, you can put the table on top of the cabinet, while the two chairs can be inserted on its designated lines. After doing so, you will only see a single furniture and that is the storage cabinet with the chairs creating ab image of four more little drawers.
If you are looking for a furniture piece that is made of bamboo the Cee Stool is the right one for you. Designed by Vault Design in Melbourne, the stool has the clean line and sleek design. A close up photo of the stool proves it.
The designers of this stool do not simply used bamboo but a cross-laminated one. Meaning, it is even more beautiful and eye-catching. The cantilevered design of the stool shows the strengths of the bamboo. If you were to look at a bamboo grass, you definitely will not think it can be an elegant material for many things. In addition, you surely will also be surprised of the bamboo’s beauty and strength.
When it comes to our furniture pieces, we normally want to have fresh design occasionally, which ended us to buy new furniture pieces every time we want a new look or new design but this will not be the case if we have the FLIP Lounge by Danilo Cvjetkovic. As its name suggests, this stylish and functional furniture will allow users to flip the lounge transforming a then low seat furniture piece into a stylish high one.
With this capability, one will have the chance to change the look of their furniture pieces and eventually interior design every time they want or need to without the need to buy new pieces of furniture, which will surely require huge amount of money.
If you have bedrooms with limited space, time for you to go for space saving furniture pieces like the Oeuf Sparrow Trundle Bed. Sparrow Trundle Bed is a twin bed that with its trundle, it becomes twice as useful. The trundle will surely save a lot of space because when you opt not to put a mattress on it, it can be your spacious storage for your clothes, blankets, and the like. On the other hand, if your friends or family member have a sleepover in your house, you can simply put on a mattress on the trundle and voila! You already have extra bed for your friend.
