Cabins designed to help you feel one with nature

Cabins have long since had the reputation of being a little wooden structure with basic amenities, meant for plaid-clad angry men who cut off from the world. Well, the plaid-based clothing aside, there is something amazing of being in the lap of nature. Our collection here today reinvents the traditional cabin designs for a modern, even futuristic look. These cabins are designed with meticulous attention to detail, filled with modern-day amenities so you can interact with nature while being comf...

Photos of Raymond Loewy's House in Palm Springs

A favorite pastime is raiding Google's archive of previously-unseen Life Magazine photos. There's three pages of film on Raymond Loewy, who was apparently quite the partier (check out his crib, above and below).This, friends, is the Father of Industrial Design's bathroom, circa 1949. Below, Loewy laying in the cut: Behind the wheel of his Lincoln Continental concept car with a plexi roof. The Loewy Crib in Palm Springs featured an indoor/outdoor pool studded with natural rock formations...

Talking Heads Songs Become Midcentury Pulp Novels, Magazines & Advertisements: “Burning Down the House,” “Once in a Lifetime,” and More

Do you like Talking Heads? Writer and visual artist Douglas Coupland once proposed that question as the truest test of whether you belong to the cohort named by his novel Generation X. Coupland's contemporary colleague in letters Jonathan Lethem summed up his own early Talking Heads mania thus: "At the peak, in 1980 or 1981, my identification was so complete that I might have wished to wear the album Fear of Music in place of my head so as to be more clearly seen by those around me." What makes...

REPII House offers expansive modular space with sleek design elements

Modular design is nothing new and continues to grow in popularity as well as functionality. The design has been a growing trend in innovative markets such as converted train cars and storage pods. But not all modular spaces feature modern design, fabulous natural lighting and sleek decor. In fact, the REPII House is a stark contrast to many modular blueprints with the idea that the extra space can be close but not attached to the main unit — and stylish to boot. The REPII House can be used as ...

The "Uber of Live Music" will charge you $1100-1600 to book a house show, pay musicians $100

Sofar Sounds is an "uber for live music" startup that just closed a $25m round of investment for its product, which books house-shows -- where musicians show up and play in your living room for you and your friends -- at $1100-$1600/each. House shows are a staple of indie musicians and a way for people in communities to show their support for bands getting their start, but they are a labor of love that generally lose money for all concerned. How could a company like this ever be profitable ...

Solar-powered Ring House heals a scarred hilltop landscape in Greece

On the southern coast of Crete, Greek architectural firm decaARCHITECTURE has turned a commission for a modern residence into an opportunity for land preservation. Named the Ring House for its rounded shape, the house was created to follow the existing topography and looks like an extension of its hilltop location. The site had been scarred by environmentally insensitive infrastructural development but has now recovered its original morphology and has been replanted with native flora. Located...

The best bedroom design trends that can completely change your bedroom look

Let’s get serious. How often do you think about the importance of your bedroom décor and the beds in your home? Our bedroom is a special place where we can switch off and recharge from our busy lives and cuddle with the ones we love.

Genre-bending new tunes by some of our favorites this week Collard: Hell Song From his debut album Unholy, “Hell Song” is a genre-bending jam by London-based Collard. With elements of rock, blues, funk and R&B, the track is hazy, sultry and full of Collard’s fiery falsetto. Produced by Zach Nahome, the song will appeal to Prince and D’Angelo fans—but Collard isn’t imitating either of them. …

Finn Juhl's Iconic Grasshopper Chair is Put in Production After More Than 80 Years 

Danish designer Finn Juhl created the Grasshopper chair in 1938 and made two editions for that year's Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition in Copenhagen. He exhibited them alongside a mobile bar cabinet with illustrations of cocktails hanging on the walls, a setup that was evidently too racy for the more traditional crowd in attendance. Juhl's chairs received no interest during the fair and by the end of it, Juhl decided to buy them from Niels Vodder, the master cabinetmaker who had produced them, to...

Maryland could become the first state to ban plastic foam containers

Last week, the Maryland General Assembly voted 100 to 37 to approve a ban on plastic foam containers. If the bill is approved by Governor Larry Hogan, Maryland will become the first U.S. state to ban such containers because of their harmful impact on human health and the environment. The bill will now go to Republican Governor Larry Hogan for approval. Although Governor Hogan has not yet expressed a position, the bill has enough votes from the House and Senate that it would be able to override ...

Sure, You Can Play That New Movie At Your Own House – For Three Thousand Dollars

Where previous attempts to serve the one percent by showing new movies to them for a high price, a new venture may work because the founders have decades-long relationships in the industry – they’re not some random kids from Silicon Valley. One says, “We are a niche offering — I’m too old for disruption — but even if a studio makes $25 million to $50 million annually from us, that’s found money.” – The New York Times
