Area Bed created by Alain Gilles for Magnitude is a novel bed concept that takes into account what a bed is traditionally used for: sleeping, but also the fact that today the bedroom is now also used as a bathroom, personal office, or extra room or living room…
The bed head can serve as room divider and room organizer to redefine the architecture of the room, but in some cases it can also wrap around the walls to create a cocoon-like-space.
The “Area” bed plays on asymmetry to bring a dynamic to something that is usually seen as rather static. It is fairly graphic thanks to its extra playful elements such as the small bedside table, “pocket table”, repositionable lamp and bench that organize the “area” where one sleeps. It is a comfortable and welcoming bed like all beds from Magnitude.

As we can see in the picture above, the new bathroom remodeling trends are the use of two vanities. His and hers vanities are popular in the modern world today as you get to have your own personal space. Adaptability and modularity are the terms that best describe the Affetto line of bathroom furniture.
Nichetto’s bathroom collection reinterprets the modernist principles of the 1950s who responded to the dizzying boom in the post-war construction of homes and the need to mass-produce furniture in which this resulted by definitively doing away with complex and boxy designs and introducing more sober and essential lines.
The Affetto line softens form and smoothes edges: the bathroom suites and sinks seem to be “enveloped” in ceramic. Affetto eliminates frills in favour of functional and pure lines.

The Acapulco Chair is one of the most celebrated chair designs of the 20th Century. It is an anonymous design that emerged in the 1950’s in Hollywood’s favorite beach destination: Acapulco, Mexico.
The chair was born next to the famous “La Quebrada” divers cliff, a place visited by Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor and where John and Jacqueline Kennedy headed for their honeymoon.
The design enjoyed continuous success for almost five decades – being a designer’s favorite for its clean lines and comfort. It was manufactured by several artisanal workshops in Mexico, slowly disappearing from the market at the turn of the 21st Century. After several design improvements, the chair is once again available with Electrostatic powder-coated steel frame and recycled UV filtered PVC woven cord shell, which makes it ideal for indoor and outdoor use.
The chair is available at thecommonproject, a design initiative based in Los Angeles, Barcelona, and Mexico City. In addition to this classic design, thecommonproject offers a stunning rocking chair version, as well as a kid’s size in both designs. Subtle and vibrant cord colors are the perfect accessory for any location.
