Top 3 Most Expensive Chairs in The World

These are the most expensive chairs in the world, those that only the rich and powerful can afford. Even they may have some problems in this case.

How much would you pay for a chair? Most of us would only go as high as around $2,000. In order to put your hands on the top 3 most expensive chairs in the world you will need to spend a whole lot more than that.

Marc Newson Lockheed Lounge Chair – $968,000

Marc Newson Lockheed Lounge Chair

Just as the name suggests, the chair is the work of designer Marc Newson. The fame of the designer rose from the year 1985. This is a chair that has its origins in the style of the thirties, with 3 legs descending from natural curves, all covered with rubber. The rest of the chair is mainly made out of plastic that is reinforced with fiberglass. You might have already seen the chair in the music video for Rain by Madonna.

Pininfarina Aresline Xten – $1.5 Million

Pininfarina Aresline Xten

Pininfarina is an Italian car design company. They are the ones that created Aresline Xten, one of the really comfortable chairs that are designed for office use. It is incredibly comfortable and obviously expensive. The Technogel design gives you a cushion that conforms to the entire shape of the body. Combine this with Dynatec, which is a fabric that is originally created for athletes. This expensive chair can easily be tilted individually and there are 4 colors available: anthracite, red, grey and metallic blue. Most people love the modern, sleek build.

The Dragons Chair – $27.8 Million

The Dragons Chair

This is quite a jump, right? What is interesting is that the chair was designed by Eileen Gray in the year 1971. It was sold at an auction. The auction house expected to get a maximum amount of $3 but the result was the one listed above thanks to the buyer, Yves Saint Laurent.

We are talking about a chair upholstered with brown leather and featuring a wood made brownish frame. The reason why the price tag is so high is Chinese iconography. The dragon is a symbol and this chair features 2 dragons. Even if the price is highly inflated by the wishes of Yves Saint Laurent, it is still beautiful.

A Simple Yet Lovely Sustainable House In Argentina

This simple but beautiful Escobar, Argentina, is made out of 7 rectangular boxes. BAM! Architecture rotated some of them to 90 degrees in order to offer more light and extend views.

The only problem with this home is the name, CG342 House. Besides that, we are faced with a pretty interesting home that is built right within a gated golf community that is private. The home had a professional in mind as an owner, a young person that will want a family in the future. You can so easily spend time right on the roof and enjoy the views and the fact that we have a home that is sustainable is definitely great.

5 Ways To Declutter Your Home Without Using Minimalistic Interior Design

Most people want to live in a home that is clutter free. You can easily use minimalistic interior design as it is really popular at the moment but you might not want that. If this is your case, you want to consider the declutter tips below. They are simple and you could include them in most homes from all around the world.

Use Your Walls

This is particularly useful when the room is small and there is no real storage available for everything that you have. One of the areas of the room that are neglected by many is the wall. You basically want to create some sort of vertical storage. You can even go as high as your ceiling, thus maximizing the storage you use.

[AdSense-A]

Use the area to showcase ornaments or family photos. Most personal items can be highlighted like this. Use flat surfaces like your table for something else, preferably just keep them free.

Use The Hallway In An Intelligent Way

Most homes do not take full advantage of the space that is available in the hallway. These areas normally attract a lot of clutter when there is no suitable storage available. When the hallway is narrow, you want to create alcoves with shoe storage, hanging space, phone charge spots and your umbrella nook. Nooks are always great for the hallway and you can use them in order to get rid of so much clutter.

Eliminating Kitchen Clutter

A kitchen gets cluttered with huge ease. You have dirty dishes, food, tools and much that appears everywhere. What you have to do is spend some money and buy storage jars. This is where you can put some of the dried goods. They will help you to keep food tidy and are so easy to clean. The children will love then and as an extra tip, you want to use square containers instead of the round ones. They are simply much more efficient.

Using Secret Storage

Clutter appears when there is no place available. Clutter can also appear when storage space is available but not used properly. You want to use hidden storage as this is really effective for making the home clutter-free and look great. As an example, you could have an ottoman that has some hidden space to store something inside.

There are so many options that you can take advantage of in terms of setting up secret storage. Just look at the options and see what would work with the interior design that you want to have.

Organizing The Bedroom

Shelving and drawers help out the most in decluttering your bedroom. This is because they offer the storage space that you need in the room and the solutions available at the moment can make the room feel welcoming and cozy, especially when coordinating with patterned rugs, throws and cushions.

Tidy the bedroom. Think about those items that you need and those that you do not. Just try to eliminate absolutely all the things that you do not need. The bedroom should be as free as possible anyway.

3 Really Important Things When You Live In A Small Apartment

There are millions of people that live in small apartments right now. Some bedrooms seem more like closets and you might sometimes even reach that kitchen sink as you lean away from your bed.

Dealing with small spaces is confusing for many but there are 3 things that are incredibly helpful for you. If you read what is written on many websites, you quickly see examples of some wonderful and ingenious uses of interior design basics in order to make that small space seem a lot larger. If you want to make living a lot more comfortable for you in a small apartment, remember this:

Proper Use Of Lighting

great lighting use in small apartment

When the space is small, you deal with it. If the space is really small and very dark, all is a lot worse than it should be. Good lighting has a huge effect in transforming any room and is particularly important when available space is limited.

The best thing that you can do is use as much natural light as possible. Do not add too much furniture and try to use window treatments that can let in as much light as the arrangement can offer.

[AdSense-A]

Try to use reflective surfaces so you make light even more impactful. Mirrors are always great for this. When you think about artificial light use, try to add sufficient task, ambient and general lighting. Whenever small rooms are properly lit they will look and feel much more spacious.

Store And Organize

organization and storage

One huge problem with the small apartments is the lack of storage. As time passes, we tend to add more and more as we buy new furniture or decorations, among many others. With a small apartment, organization and storage are vital.

You basically have to learn how to live with less. It sounds bad but you will love the results. At the same time, you want to regularly clear the apartment and make sure everything is tidy. The great thing about this is that once you get used to a good schedule, it will no longer seem a chore.

Flexibility – Versatility

flexible furniture

Flexible layouts are always great in small apartments that have multiple uses. You want to look for small furniture that has multiple uses. For instance, you can combine your dining table with a desk. Wall-mounted elements are always great and sofa beds are normally recommended. Use rolling pieces and all that you can in order to make sure that the space is as flexible as it can be.
