When it comes to choosing kitchen cabinets there are so many options, from modern sleek to shabby chic. However, it is always worth to consider getting simple flat cabinets in a nice finish. Let's see some examples of reclaimed wood kitchens that have this rustic feel!






Faro Barcelona is Spanish lighting company offering a wide range of lighting products. They are on the market for the last 60 years, providing quality products at a good price range. We have spotted them during Sleep Event 2017. What especially caught our eyes was a cool wall lamp that came with cloth hangers.












Does a chandelier with Swarovski elements always need to be pretentious? Surely not! Quasar is creative lighting company from Netherlands. We spotted them during Sleep Event 2017 in London. They provide products that are both modern and sophisticated but not overwhelming. The effect is amazing!

 Every piece can be custom- made, depending on which size or colour we need.


Simple ideas looking good!

From their website:

In 1992 Quasar presented itself for the first time at an international fair: Euroluce in Milan. The look and feel of that time is still visible in our collection. It is important to note that in the basic collection Quasar most of the models are available in several finishes of materials. (aluminium, stainless steel, brass, bronze etc) This makes the designs timeless and the choice of the materials determines the use of the item, either in a classical or modern ambiance.


Through the years the collection is expanded by models of the world famous designers like “Ravage”, Edward van Vliet and the Belgian artist Jan Pauwels. Every year are added new models, this steady growth of the collection made Quasar to one of the most creative lighting companies. This growth is followed by investments into a larger production company, in the excellent quality of the products and the inventive packaging.

Since almost 10 years Quasar is working with led. So it is not anymore the light of the future. 90% of the new models are equipped with best quality of led.

For all models they offer the possibility to make custom sizes, colours etc. As every project is differ-ent, often individually designed architects this is important. It is even possible to create new models based on the architects sketches.

At this time the export is about 75% of the total turnover.





Undoubtedly the home is the place where we can express ourselves and create without limitations!
Everyone wants to feel cozy at home. It takes only a little imagination to give your home a unique character at no extra cost! Just look around. You certainly keep in the closet a dozen old things you think are useless, but you have not yet get rifd of.
Before you do, here are some ideas on how to use them with a new purpose:

Suitcase Chair / Table

Old suitcases can serve not only for decoration but also to be converted into unique chairs, stools or tables! For this purpose, you only need to select and attach appropriate legs (you can use legs from other old furniture).
Trick for a stable chair: put a piece of plywood at the bottom of the suitcase, then attach the footrests and screw them. Apply glue in both sides of the suitcase and tuck in pillows. Now you have a comfortable and unique looking chair.

Ladder Bookshelf

The old wooden ladder can be your new bookshelf.
You choose how to place it on the wall - horizontally or vertically, depending on the space you want to fill or your preferences.

Bicycle Rim Clock

Do you have an old bicycle left over from your childhood?
Make a unique wall clock from one of its rims. You can also use a music plate for this purpose. All you have to do is taking a working mechanism from an old or broken electronic clock and insert it into the hole in the middle of the plate / rim and secure it on the other side with a nut. Then simply put the arrows. If they are black, you can paint them in another color to stand out.

Old Door Coffee table

The old wooden door frame can be turn into a great coffee table. Just add legs to it and you will have a gorgeous re-purposed coffee table. It will give your place a unique vintage look if you don't paint it. If you like the industrial style, you can add big wheels instead of furniture legs.

Cool hangers

Turn the beautiful old utensils into hangers. Bend them into the desired shape and attach them to the wall.

Tennis Racket Mirror

If you are a fan of tennis, use the old tennis racket and turn it into mirror for your hallway!

Tray from an old photo frame

Surprise your guests with originality by serving them in your new tray from an old picture frame.

Floating Shelf Made of Old Books

You can make wall shelves from old books using metal brackets to help secure them to the wall. Choose books with beautiful covers and colors that suit the interior of your home.
Using these innovative furniture solutions, you will not only create a unique interior in your home, but you will also breathe new life into the old stuff, most of which (admit it) you keep only because of sentimental reasons.

It is December!!! So now we can officially talk about Christmas! Today we have put a Christmas tree in the office and being big fans of Scandi we would like to share with you some tips and ideas on how to decorate your house for Christmas in a Scandinavian style.

Scandinavian style is all about minimal and natural and whites. Imagine being in the snowy forest in Finland or Sweden. What do you see? Greens, whites, blues... Those are the main colours to work with. In general, everything that looks natural, like it was just taken from this imaginary forest of ours will work perfectly.

Creating heartwarming decorations out of white candles, forest greens, pine cones, cinnamon sticks will create a perfect Scandi Christmasy feel.



Using tree branches variously whether, for the wreaths, table or wall decor will bring your house closer to nature.

Christmas tree decorations could be in white, greys and blues tones.

We have got our Christmas decorations from Amara Hideaway Collection, which is all about this Scandinavian Christmas feel. 


And we almost got those from Amara. Just see how lovely they are...




Might get some of those for my house or for some presents. Have you bought your Christmas decorations yet? If no, you know where you can start looking :)

Happy December!


Astro Lighting is the brand we know very well and used for quite a few of our Projects.

We absolutely loved their new concrete and antique brass finishes for the wall lights.




They are also releasing new additions to their timeless recessed downlights collection. Vey minimal 30mm diameter downlights will be available in the new year. 




Last week we have visited Sleep Event at Bussiness Design Center and would like to share with you some of our favourite founds. 

Wetroom materials have presented new ReFrame collection from Unidrain shower solutions. We have used their system before and were happy to discover their new finishes. Now that we a huge demand for brass, copper and black sanitaryware it might become a little bit complicated to match all the accessories to same finish. And I have not seen any of the shower drains in the matcing finish before either.  




The collection includes shower drains, towel hooks and rail, paper holder, brush and a shelf.
