Fresh Design decor idea: Tetris wall sticker

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Funky contemporary wall sticker decor

Tetris wall sticker

Oooh, a Tetris wall sticker!

We’ve featured lots of fab wall stickers on Fresh Design Blog and it’s hard to choose favourites, but if it’s fun, colourful and retro you’re looking for – and you love a good computer game – you can’t beat having Tetris on your wall.

The Tetris wall decal is designed by Your Deco Shop and is available in several different sizes.

You get a selection of Tetris pieces in all the classic colours, which you can arrange on the wall as you wish – with bits already fitted into rows, and other suspended pieces in falling motion, or in any other way you choose.

Red Candy have three sizes of the Tetris wall sticker set in stock, priced from £51.

Glass bubble pendant light

Fresh design glass pendant lighting

Contemporary pendant light

It’s amazing how much a new light can change the look and feel of a room, both in terms of adding a different lighting perspective, and in adding a fresh design statement in its own right.

That’s certainly the case with this glass bubble pendant light. It will help light up your room and it looks fantastic.

The pendant light is adorned with an array of large and small clear bubbles made from glass, surrounding a single light in the middle.

Hang it in a dining room to light up meal times, use it in a hallway to brighten up those oft-overlooked areas or use it in your living room as a statement lighting piece.

The bubbles pendant light is available from Dwell, where it’s currently reduced to £249.

Cityscape coffee table by Xor Designs

Xor Designs handmade table furniture

Cityscape coffee table

This contemporary style cityscape coffee table is not only oozing with great design, but it has some clever storage solutions built into the stylish base.

The base of the table is made from solid walnut and features a design reminiscent of a city skyline, with small office block buildings and tall skyscrapers nestling together. The table is created by Xor Designs, with each one individually made to order.

The top of the table is made from thick perspex, which enables the base design to be easily seen.

It’s within the base, and the skyscrapers, that the storage solutions can be found. There are well constructed spaces that work as a magazine rack, the perfect sized sections to hold your TV remote controls and other little hidden nooks and crannies.

Functional coffee table storage

Magazine and remote control storage

It’s a clever coffee table design and, being made of solid wood, should be a long-lasting and functional piece of furniture.

The cityscape coffee table can be ordered from the Xor Designs store on Bouf.

Fresh design finds: Three dream day beds

Friday, May 25th, 2012

We love a good day bed.

They’re comfortable, relaxing and a great alternative to a sun lounger for using outside. Here are three well designed and gorgeous looking dream day beds!

Fresh design contemporary garden day beds

Dune day bed

The Dune day bed, by Barlow Tyrie, is an elegant piece of furniture for a contemporary garden. It’s made from hand-woven resin fibre which is weatherproof and has plenty of space to curl up on. It’s available from John Lewis.

Fresh design daybeds

Atlantic day bed

A lot of daybeds tend to have rounded cover shades, but we love the look of this Atlantic Daybed, that’s produced in a tipi tent style. It’s from House of Fraser.

Contemporary outdoor day bed

Padstow day bed

Compared to the two other options, the Padstow day bed is somewhat more affordable, but is still equally well styled. We particular the addition of some hidden storage, so you can stash away your suncream, shades, books or magazines. This one’s available from Tesco.

Fresh Design Furniture: Casamania Opus Incertum bookcase

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012
Contemporary designer bookcase

Opus Incertum bookcase

We love a good bookshelf design and this one is certainly eye-catching!

Designed by Sean Yoo for Casamania, the Opus Incertum is made from recyclable expanded polypropylene. There are numerous honeycomb shaped segments which work as shelves, where you can store books, CDs, DVDs or other items.

Designer bookcase for a modern home

One piece on its own works well as a bookcase or display cabinet, but you can also use several pieces to create a larger display system for a home or office. Several bookcases joined together on the wall to form a larger display unit look really effective.

Contemporary room divider screen

In addition, it’s got the creativity and charm to double up as a room divider or screen, with the shelves used for their storage capacities or kept open to let light shine through.

The Opus Incertum bookcase is in stock at Made in Design and is available  in black, white or gold. How would you use it?

Glycine stylish oak side table

Contemporary side table bedside table ideas

Designer side table

We’ve been on the lookout for a stylish and practical side or occasional table recently, but some of the options available are frankly rather underwhelming. Then we found the glycine side table, which is most definitely not underwhelming and ideally suited to a contemporary home.

Designed and made in France by Drugeot Labo, the angular design of the glycine side table gives it a distinctive and contemporary look.

The table is made from oak and the space under the top provides a useful area where magazines or books can be stored (just slot them in). There’s also a small drawer included and room on top to display favourite home accessories, stand a lamp or keep free for occasional needs.

As well as being functional for use in a living room or hallway, the table would also make a great bedside table.

The glycine oak side table is new in at Heal’s and costs £495.

Steuart Padwick Stroller desk in spring green

Award winning stroller desk furniture design

Stroller desk

Looking for a new desk? The clean lines and fresh green colour of this Stroller desk help give it a spring-like appeal and it’s currently available at a superb price.

The stroller desk is designed by award-winning furniture designer Steuart Padwick and it’s a sophisticated piece of furniture. The desk is made from solid oak with engineered wood and oak veneer and it’s finished in a fresh green and clear lacquer.

The desk offers ample space, plus has two roomy drawers and a storage compartment. In fact, it’s got a multi-functional ability to it, as the central storage compartment opens up to reveal a mirror, so you could use the Stroller as a contemporary style dressing table instead of a desk!

Contemporary home dressing table

The desk becomes a dressing table!

The green stroller desk is usually priced at £1495 on the high street, but if you buy it now at Made.com it will only cost you £299.

If the green isn’t for you, the same desk is also available in white or walnut.
