These cool upholstered chairs Husk by B&B Italia recently made their appearance at the 2011 Milan Furniture Fair, and we like what we see! Designed by Patricia Urquiola – a fixture on the furniture scene – the chair features a unique upholstery pattern resting in a stylized shell, giving it an entirely revamped shape that is as inviting in looks as it is in fee. And supporting it all, the base plays more of a starring role. Available in different styles, it adds a hard edge to the plush, cozy seat. Contemporary style and comfort characterize this cool chair design.
Winner of a furniture competition at the Arhus School of Architecture in Denmark in 1999, Flemming Busk’s Twilight Sleep Sofa distills the concept of a convertible couch to a simple cylinder and rectangle. A compact and nicely scaled sofa, the bolster pillow adjusts to three different positions for customized seat depths (19.5″/23″/34.75″) and lumbar support. The Twilight offers further options by converting into a daybed, queen-size bed or two twin beds. To transform Twilight into a comfortable sleeping space for two, simply move the bolster out of the way and place the top cushion on the floor. The two mattresses, when pushed together are larger than a queen-size bed, but not quite as large as a king. For sheets, use two twin extra-long fitted sheets with coordinating flat sheets or one king-size flat sheet. A great small space solution, Twilight turns any room into a guest room. The slipcover is removable for cleaning and is welted at the seams with contrast piping for a clean aesthetic. Casters on the rear legs make for easy mobility.

Last but not least, we consider the mirror to be a mandatory item in any girl’s bedroom, so in some of the photos below you will notice they have a special status. Even though not all the room design ideas have a particular theme, the decorating elements are very well interconnected creating interiors that are both functional and aesthetic.
