A wet bathroom floor can be dangerous, but this eliminates this and prevents the damage that water can do to walls etc. This is something that anyone can install in their bathroom with basic tools and DIY knowledge, so there cost benefits there too.

Bookniture Foldable Furniture!

Furniture Built Inside A Book That’s Bookniture!

For most of us, we have little choice in the amount of furniture we have in our homes this is simply down to the lack of the storage available. However, Bookniture is a new idea that aims to solve this problem with their collapsible furniture designs. When not in use, the Bookniture takes on the shape of a book, it can be stored in a book shelf out the way and when needed taken down, when it can be unfolded to produce a useful seat or table that makes all the difference when you have visitors. The Bookniture measures up at 7 inches (W) x 13 inches (H) x 1.6 inches (D) and when expanded its measures in at 14 inches (H) x 13 inches (W) and it weighs in at 1.6 kilos. The felt top cover will measure in at 13 inches (W) x 0.2 inches (D).

It is made from a heavy duty kraft paper that is environmentally responsible. Kraft Paper is both tough and water resistant to a certain extent. It is fully recyclable and it contains a high grade Neodymium Magnet embedded within the cover. This furniture system will be going on sale later in this year, but it can be pre ordered now from just $70 for the brown edition with grey felt top. It’s available in either Field Brown or Leather Black, with the felt top covers coming in red, green, light grey or black.

Main Drain For Men!

The Main Drain Could Save Your Relationship!

Main Drain For Men!

If there is only one single thing other than money that couples argue about it’s about the smallest room in the house, the toilet. The seat has to be up, down or whatever and then this is the issue of missing the bowl, it’s all too nasty for some people and therefore it’s the cause of many arguments that could lead to permanent relationship damage. However, fear not, because here is the Main Drain and what it does is provide the perfect place for a man to go without making a mess or even having to touch the seat from whatever position it is in at the time. Its east to install too, simply clip it onto the side of the bowl and adjust for height, that’s it.

Once in place, the Main Drain is like having your very own personal urinal that is easy to keep clean by simply spraying some cleaner into it. It’s the perfect thing for any man about the house and it is not going to cost the earth either, what a win win situation that could be and a happy relationship too, what’s not to like here. When the Main Drain launches later on this year it will have a retail price of around $60, but if you like a bargain then pre order one from just $45!

Small Spaces Made Cool By Design!

Who Thought That Small Spaces Could Be So Cool!

When it comes to buying somewhere to live, you might think that a room of just 325 square feet might not be the perfect place to set up home. However, it seems that with some clever designing this small space could become a comfortable living space for the organised person. Thanks to Clei and Resource Furniture this small room has become the perfect city dwelling for anyone who needs to be close to everything that the city living offers without the huge cost of buying an apartment.

The micro-unit was part of the groundbreaking 2013 exhibition “Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers” at the Museum of the City of New York in conjunction with Citizens Housing & Planning Council (chpcny.org). Furniture in the micro-unit is available at Resource Furniture.
