Nickels Have a Use

Posted in Design, DIY, For the House by Michelle on July 29, 2010

This is a Nickel Coin Bench created by Vermont based designer, Johnny Swing. Made out of  7,000 nickels welded together. If you purchased this bench, you’d be getting $350 back. Nice.

I’m loving the underside construction of metal rods as well. Check out more pics with the link.

I loved the title of this article from Design^Sprout so I used it again! Sorry!

This is a wool skin rug from Longoland, created by Joshua Ben Longo. So cute!

The Impractical, Do Not Touch, Shelves

Posted in Amusing, Art, Books / Words / Articles, For the House by Michelle on January 9, 2010

Interesting,…… piece of art.

Do Not Touch (counterbalanced shelves)
5 pine planks (each 6 feet), 5 metal brackets, tools and materials from the gallery utility closet or found on the gallery grounds. Each of the five shelves that comprise this work is balanced on a single bracket. All maintain their level balance by the precise placement of the objects they bear.
