Furniture takes on multifunctional style
“Transformers” was one of the most popular movies of 2007. The plot had two alien robots, the heroic Autobots vs. the villainous Decepticons, disguising themselves as small objects, primarily vehicles, and later transforming themselves into giant robots.
Furniture, looking like one thing, can also be transformed into something else. For instance, consider the Clover Murphy Cabinet Bed from Night &Day Furniture.

Creating liveable outdoor spaces is one way to maximise a room
FROM lamps to lounge chairs, ceiling fans to rugs, bringing indoor styling into an outdoor space is easier than it looks.
Patio and deck styling can often be an afterthought, with many buying weatherproof furniture and leaving it unused in the corner of a space for years.
But with the warm subtropical weather we experience here on the Gold Coast, it is no surprise outdoor spaces are getting a makeover, with many homeowners styling them as second lounge or living rooms that feature pendant lights and weatherproof rugs.

Mid-Century Schindler in Westwood On Market For First Time Ever Asks $1.7 Million
Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #506, Westwood's Tischler House was designed by Viennese visionary Rudolph Schindler between 1949 and 1950. The unconventional residence was commissioned by artist Adolph Tischler, who constructed the home's metal fireplace and built-in furniture.
Now on the market for the first time since completion in 1950, the three-story home is, per the listing description, "topped with a blue translucent, sky-like roof resembling an 'upside-down glass-bottomed boat,'" while "glass planes above the kitchen and master bedroom appear to make the house transparent throughout."
