This Bookstand Will Make Your Books Look Like They’re Floating

Will you buy something out of pure function, or because of how it looks? Whatever your reason, you’ll definitely find this bookstand interesting. London designer Sebastian Bergne has created the “Fiction” bookstand, which is made of a folded steel sheet and painted paper white. What makes this bookstand so unique is the way it creates the illusion of floating books—the way the stand is angled makes the books seem as if they’re either propping each other up or hovering in mid-air, depending on how it’s angled on the shelf. “The resulting bookstand ended up being mainly about instability,” he says in an interview with Dezeen. “I’ve tried to create something unexpected that will make people look twice and enjoy displaying their books differently. The object is hidden by the books, so the project is less about the design and more about what you can do with it.”

What is it with Hollywood stars and their love of midcentury modern style? Seems like many of the celebrities we’ve featured here like the style so much. But Arrested Development star Jason Bateman and his wife Amanda Anka have probably had enough of it, as they’re letting go of the midcentury-modern, Hollywood Hills home they’ve lived in for over 12 years. They bought it for US$885,000 in 2002, and are now selling it for US$2.25 million. The couple previously bought a mansion belonging to the late actor Ernest Borgnine, who had lived in it until his death in 2012. Real estate pundits are surmising they've finished renovating the mansion, which, according to Curbed.com, desperately needed do-over because of its old-fashioned style!

Farmhouse Turned Whimsical Rainbow House in the Woods

What do you get when you combine an artist and an old, non-descript farmhouse in the woods? The multi-coloured rainbow house you see above (before and after pictures succeed below). Artist Kat O’Sullivan and her partner Mason Brown bought the run-down home built in 1840, and located in the middle of the woods near High Falls, New York in 2009. Slowly they transformed it through the years with the help of friends and their own “magic” touch into this whimsical abode that we see today: no more white façade, linoleum floors, and decrepit roof. Now, everything—including interiors—is awash in bright colours and bold patterns, as well as furnished with elaborately designed home items, designed in what O’Sullivan calls her “artistic upcycling” philosophy. Would you decorate your home this way?
