Rise Weekender

The Rise Weekender is an amazing duffle bag that comes with built-in collapsible shelves!!!! Yes!!! The bag comes with two hangers that easily fit onto a clothes rack. Once you hang it up, you can enjoy three spacious shelves and even a laundry hamper. The Rise Weekender also has three zipped pockets into which you can place toiletries and small items. So in short, the designers thought of pretty much everything and you no longer have to rummage through your bag to find what you are looking for. Continue reading

Knitted Stools

Tiny Apartment Makeover

In this tiny, 35 sq.m. Parisian apartment, Éléonore Bridge’s creative talents shine through. When she purchased the apartment, it did not fill her needs, tastes, or lifestyle. So she stripped it down to its beautiful bones and started from scratch. The bedroom now lies at the back interior wall and the bath now is street-side so she has a window there. Open living, cooking, working, and entertaining span the length of the space between. Continue reading

Valley House

Plan Bureau architects conceptualized a home that brings the mountains to the valley. Inspired by the unpredictable and irregular mountain peaks and valleys, this is an original and powerful approach. A small square foot print defines the ground floor living spaces.
