Chair by Numbers

Check out these fun numbers chairs! I came across them in last month's issue of InStyle magazine. These colorful chairs come in an astounding 180 custom colors!

The chairs are manufactured by the Italian company, Billiani and sold through Eurotrend USA. They retail for about $550 per chair.

They are also available in natural woods, such as these beech versions.

But the laquered color versions are really fun! It would be neat to do something creative with these whimsical chairs!

Google is Here: A Peek Inside!

Google has recently opened new offices in Los Angeles, at the famed Franky Gehry designed "Binocular Building" in Venice.

Inside the binocular building is a sitting room where an oversized lightbulb hangs inside!

A the entrance, Google logos are plastered all over the walls and ceiling.

The interior offices of the sleek newly designed Los Angeles Google headquarters. But I think we still expected a little more whimsy in the workspace.

The offices even have a juice bar, cafe, snack bar, and a gym!

Welcome Google Los Angeles!

Peacock Passion

Lately I have been noticing a lot of peacocks in interior design - everything from artwork to accessories! It may be a classic motif, but it certainly has made a resurgence. Take a look!
