One of the keys to designing a visually dynamic office is having great lighting, and the Paperfold lamp series created by Swedens Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture firm offers just that.  The Paperfold series is comprised of six lamps, all of which were inspired by hand sewn paper clothes Fredrik Kjellgrens grandmother taught him to make during his childhood.  The lamps are constructed from a piece of paper stretched and folded to form a unique shape, and come in four colors; magenta, cyan, amber, and black.

One thought on “Paperfold Lamps”

I love, love these lamps! I work in a dank cubicle and these would bring so much life to the work space. I just entered a video into Pimp My Cube, the new online contest that works a lot like Pimp My Ride except for cubicles (google it, not too many other people have entered!) and if I win I am going to buy these right away. Thanks! If you are looking office furniture you can also look for Saint-Étienne Office Furniture.

 

We’ll Teach You All You Need To Know About Furniture

Shopping for furniture for your home can often be a headache. There are so many different choices out there, it can be hard to make a decision. However, if you take the time to learn a bit more about furniture before you go shopping, you can find some amazing deals.

When you buy a couch, look for a durable one that will last for years and determine how comfortable it is. In particular, investigate the springs. It is best to find those that have eight-way springs, but serpentine springs are great too. Push down on the springs to see how they respond to you. If they are located near one another, and they feel firm, you can be fairly confident in your purchase.

Be aware of the types of wood your furniture is typically made from. Different types of wood have different qualities, so the same piece of furniture made from one type of wood may be a whole lot sturdier when made from a different type of wood. This can also lead to a bigger price as well.

If you are trying to shop for furniture made in either fully or at least partially environmentally responsible manners, look out for three possible certifications. Scientific Certification Systems uses an SCS label. Also look for SmartWood certification by the Rainforest Alliance. The Green Seal organization also verifies furniture, simply saying Green Seal on the label.

Look for colors that will still look good in a few years from now. Brightly colored furniture can seem like a good idea at the time of your purchase but you will quickly get sick of it. Look for simple colors that can easily blend in different styles and decors.

Shop for used furniture to save money and get quality pieces. Many times you can find furniture that an individual no longer needs for a great price. You can either shop at used furniture stores, from the newspaper, on Craigslist or any other place where people sell the furniture they no longer want.

When purchasing a new bed, make sure you lay down on it to find the perfect comfort level for you. Many times people who choose pillowtop mattresses find that the mattress is too soft once they get it home. To help you avoid this, lay down in the bed in the position that you sleep in to ensure it suits your comfort levels.

Now that you have read this advice, you should feel better prepared to go shopping for furniture. As with any subject, the better you understand the topic beforehand, the better off you will be. Keep the information from this article in mind so that you can find the right pieces of furniture for your home.
