We‘re all familiar with rattan, although sometimes we think it‘s one and the same as wicker. But the material we now associate with cozy furniture is actually full of surprises. The term rattan, for instance, defines more than 600 species of climbing palms and a lot of them are in fact more similar to lianas than to actual wood. Rattan has slender stems and doesn‘t grow like a tree but more like a vine, also being a bit similar to bamboo from certain points of view.
Chen Chen & Kai Williams designed something called The Third Eye Vessel. It’s a magazine rack which has a rather unusual form. Its body is made up of three panels that form a sort of open box that lets you place your books along its sides so they can be automatically aligned. It’s a simple and clever system and the marble really makes the piece pop.
There are of course some major differences between a feminine decor and one with a masculine vibe. Masculine spaces are more practical and more focused on functionality. This, however, doesn’t stop them from also being sensible to style and little details that make them look charming. Sacrificing style for comfort is rarely a good idea, especially when you want the space to look masculine.
Pull-out tables can be very space-efficient as well. You can keep them hidden inside your cabinet unit and pull them out when needed. Then there are also the expandable tables which let you seat more people when required, remaining small and compact the rest of the time. Other ideas can be to save space with seats can be put away or to have a kitchen island extension instead of a freestanding dining table.
