The nature has been always something that inspired many of furniture and interior designers.

Carry-On Stool by Mattias Stenberg

Typical interior small furniture are portable inside our homes, but it take to much effort or sometimes two to three people just to move it some centimeters away from it current position. To fix this the Scandinavian designer Mattias Stenberg comes with the idea of Carry-On Stool that is very easy to move. The design studio behind this project is SVA&D. It was established in 2010 by Mattias Stenberg and focuses on contemporary architecture and design for private and corporate clients. SVA&D design is often inspired by everyday visual snapshots that we find all around us, but molded into new meaning and function. 

This modernistic furniture was shown at the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2012. The stool is made from upholstered textured tweed body and a natural wooden handle. It can come in different colors as green or gray. Although this is not a perfect example of little portable furniture the handle is great looking as an addition to the stool. Carry-On Stool will look great in any children room as it brings freshness and playfulness.

20 modern designers fireplaces

The fireplace is very good looking in every modern home. The modern fireplaces are used not only for the great look and feel of cozyness in home. But they acctualy can be used for heating the entire home. There is big variaty of fireplace designes nowdays. They vary from size and shape. Some of them are with open fire but other are behind fireproof glass.

When the fireplace is primarily for beauty and styling the modern interior, especially if a table is nearby, it is good the fire to be raised to 40-60 cm above the floor. This way the fire can be seen from the guests. Raising the fireplace to a lower level for seating - 36 cm, with a bench on one or both sides is normally a good solution, especially if space below is used for raw and wet wood. Fireplace accessories are something beautiful and worthy of special design. So picke them very carefully and look so there design can match your overall interior.If your interior include glass and metal, it is better to restrict the shape of the fireplace to simple design and frugal decorations around the fireplace.

In general, fire inside is with more intense colors and expressive compared with the surrounding walls. Recently, more and more of the fireplace opening is closed partially or fully with glass or fine metal mesh, allowing the flames to be clearly visible, and sparks and embers do not fall on the floor. Despite them, the better solution is paving one meter in front of the fireplace with fireproof material. Flooring next to a fireplace look unnatural.
