Let’s not leave rattan furniture solely to the living room. Rattan headboards can be so intricate and beautiful, whether painted or plain. And have you seen the rattan side tables out there? You’ll find too many to love that you’ll just have to put some in your bedroom. How do you reconcile your desire for a rattan touch with your modernist styled living room? Think halfsies. A chair like the one above will provide just a touch of the trend but those black legs keep it minimal and fresh. It’s the perfect solution to your rattan problem. It’s not fair to let the grown ups have all the rattan fun. Bring a little vintage charm to the nursery with a rattan cradle. Suddenly, every single nursery shot will be Instagram worthy. Plus, your baby photographer will go rattan crazy too.
Hanging beds are seen by some as being a sophisticated version of the hammock. But they’re much more than that. A hanging bed is a lot more versatile and complex than its simple design suggests. It’s possible to build your own hanging bed in which case the whole structure would be pretty straight forward. He’s a young designer from Poland who came up with the concept for a really interesting hanging bed. This one offers two positions. There’s the sleeping position and at this point all you see is a regular bed with a wooden frame. The only unusual detail are the four thick pieces of rope attached to the frame.
You can choose from a variety of wood finishes, lacquers and gloss paint options in order to customize the bed. Multiple colors are available. The bed comes with adjustable back lighting and the mattress is not included. We came across a similar design when we looked at actor Vincent Kartheiser’s Hollywood cabin. It was a stylish and very well organized space that featured a hanging bed attached to the ceiling with chain.
Our enthusiasm for DIY projects involving Ikea products led us to explore a bit more the versatility of the Ikea Lack Table. There’s actually a whole series entitled like that and it includes a TV unit, coffee table, side table and some wall shelves. Today we’ll only focus on the tables, trying to find ways to integrate them into ingenious projects. Let’s start with a simple transformation. For this project you can use either a Lack or a Hemnes table which are both Ikea coffee tables. Get some wooden boards and cut them to size so you can make a tabletop. Stain them and measure the center of the table so you know where to place the first board. Clamp each end down and then add the others the same way. Glue and screw all the boards, turn the table upside down and put something heavy on the middle. Let it sit overnight, add more screws in the center of each board but on the underside so you don’t see them.
