Twilight Sleep Sofa by Within Reach

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.

Italian retro riviera seaside decor

For some dreamy seaside decor ideas, check out Annette Joseph’s Italian summer home. She designed it and claims it boasts a “fishing town meets retro Riviera vibe” and we love it. The entire interior concept was inspired by the sea. So throughout the home you’ll find lots of blues along with warmer colors that have an earthy, sandy or rusty quality to them. Imagine this – an antique fishing boat calmly glides by while you take your slow morning walk on the beach. Now you have a good feeling about the color scheme. The Ligurian style stone wall in the guest room is really impressive and brings in a warm and rustic textural element. Incorporated into the interior scheme are decorative details that pay tribute to the sea – like the porthole mirror, the starfish, seashells and nautical stripe patterns. And what would an Italian home be without some marble? Check out the amazing slabs in the bathroom and kitchen. With all that light, the home feels fresh and airy; you can almost smell the ocean breeze. Continue Reading
