Furniture taken out of context can be misleading – sure, it looks great in the pictures but what will it do for (or to) an actual living space in a real room of your home? These sizable shelving units are as much about making space as they are about storing books and other odds and ends. Most importantly, they are shown in creative interior design contexts rathre than posed against blank white backgrounds.
Set along a wall in a modern home, these designer storage objects by Alf De Fre begin to blur the boundaries between architecture, interior and furniture design. Spatially, they seem as much like extensions of the surrounding walls or art placed against them as they do places to put things. They are more than just bookcases or shelving units.
For those that prioritize privacy, this type of windows is a wonderful alternative. They provide just as much natural light as any other type of windows and they don’t create the same connection with the outdoors.
The process is remarkably easy, though not without danger – fill a balloon with water, dip it up to the water level in melted wax and repeat. Go above the waterline and it might just pop. After a few times down and back, the exterior surface should be sufficiently waxed to form a rounded solid candle-worthy shape that can hold a small votive or tea light. After a few iterations, the resulting (cooled) candles should be tipped over and drained – and the water balloon remnants discarded. And to keep it level: setting the bottom on a solid surface during the process and the top after the balloon is removed should do the trick. For more science-minded types or slight thrill-seekers, these candles might make for a more festive holiday craft project than most. Full instructions at CandleTech.
