Scroll down and take a look and some crazy and creative bed covers! Which one would you like in your bedroom?

Did you know?

  1. In most societies people sleep during the night, but in very hot climates they may sleep during the day. During Ramadan, many Muslims sleep during the day rather than at night and people working nights try to sleep in the daytime.
  2. Around 3400 BC Egyptian pharaohs had their beds moved off the ground and slept on a raised surface. Roman Empire mattresses were stuffed with wool, feather, reeds or hay. The beds were decorated with paint, bronze, silver, jewels and gold. During the Renaissance, mattresses were stuffed with straw and feathers and then covered with silks, velvets or satin material. The arrival of the 18th century brought bed frames made from cast iron, and mattresses that were made of cotton. The 19th century saw the invention of the bed spring, also called the box spring. The 20th century brought the inner spring mattress, futon, water bed (starting in the 1960s), air mattresses, foam rubber mattresses and pillows.

31 Fun and Creative Ring Designs

Rings are usually seen as circular band around someone’s finger, they’re usually a standard design with some containing stones and gems. But what happens when you go out of the boundaries and want to create a weird and creative ring which is different from the rest? In today’s post we’ll be looking at 31 Fun and Creative Ring Designs.

Strictly speaking a normal ring is a finger ring (which may be hyphenated); other types of rings worn as ornaments are earrings, bracelets for the wrist, armlets or arm rings, toe rings and torcs or neck rings, but except perhaps for toe rings, the plain term “ring” is not normally used to refer to these.

Rings are traditionally usually in metal but can be of almost any material: metal, plastic, stone, wood, bone, glass, or gemstone to name a few. They may be set with a gem or stone of some sort, which is often a precious or semi-precious gemstone such as diamond, ruby, sapphire or emerald, but can also be of almost any material. The custom of giving and receiving finger rings dates back over approximately 6,000 years. Tracing the exact history of this practise is difficult.

100-Year-Old Photo Negatives Found in Antarctica

Conservators of the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust discovered a box containing 100-Year-Old Photo Negatives while exploring huts in Antarctica. The box contained 22 never before seen ellulose nitrate negatives documenting some Antarctica explorers 100 years ago.

Luckily the box was preserved in a block of ice, these historical photos showcase life on Antarctica with the heroic men who explored the rough landscape. At the turn of the twentieth century Antarctica was the focus of one of the last great races of exploration and discovery. The heroic era of Antarctic exploration (1895 – 1917) gave us Sir Ernest Shackleton and Captain Robert Falcon Scott, names now synonymous with Antarctic adventure and the values of discovery, adventure and endurance.

Four expedition parties built bases in the Ross Sea Region of Antarctica. The bases still stand in Antarctica today and are cared for, on behalf of the international community, by the Antarctic Heritage Trust.

The Trust, based in New Zealand, is engaged in a long-term cold conservation project to protect the explorers' legacy; the bases and the artefacts they left behind, for current and future generations.

See all of the images and read more about the discovery Antarctica Heritage Trust.

30 Weird and Creative Stair Designs

When we  walk into a building with more than one floor, we never really give a second thought to the stairs. Let’s face it stairs aren’t the most exciting feature of a building, they’re usually pretty boring with their design and structure.

To help change your mind and how weird and creative stair designs can be, we’ve found these 30 unusual stairs which will open your eyes. A stairway, staircase, stairwell, flight of stairs, or simply stairs is a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance by dividing it into smaller vertical distances, called steps. Stairs may be straight, round, or may consist of two or more straight pieces connected at angles.

Steel Stairs

creative-stairs-002

From Rowin Petersma, this divided staircase is made of expanded steel that lets the maximum amount of light shine through from the top floor of the apartment.

Deep Stairs

creative-stairs-003

These unusually deep stairs, and the 4-stories of house surrounding them, come with the rather large price tag of $38 million. The iconic NYC property, designed by Paul Rudolph, has seen many a famous person inside including Halston and Gunter Sachs, who were both previous owners.

Bizarre Stairs

creative-stairs-004

This small, uniquely shaped house calls for a small, uniquely shaped staircase and that’s just what Kyoto-based Alphaville Architects designed.

Stone Stairs

creative-stairs-005

Designed by Castroferro Arquitectos, these extra-wide stone stairs with wood treads on top match the floating wood stairs above, all with enough room to store books on the sides.

Multi Colored Textured Wood

creative-stairs-001

Italian company 14 Ora Italiana has a collection of wood grain porcelain tiles that were inspired by the works of Andy Warhol. The Uonuon line comes in fourteen colors that are featured on this colorful and fun staircase.

Understairs

“Coat storage is often an eyesore, but not with this understairs unit. The well-engineered sliding cupboard can use hooks or clothes rails according to preference.” (Designed by Deriba Furniture)

Sensualscaping Stairs

“The stair is a continuation and intensification of the simple graphic skirting board lines that trace their way through the house. As they turn the corner into the stair void, they expand like a genie released from a lamp, curling and separating and bifurcating from the wall to form the delicate edge of the stair treads, lifting into the air to rise as the veil of the balustrade.” (Designed by Atmos Studio)

Stairs

Staircase designed for a private residence in Stockholm, Sweden in 2006 by Gabriella Gustafson & Mattias Ståhlbom. (Designed by TAF arkitektkontor)

Flat F.M

These floating stairs link the living room to the private space reserved for the owner under the rooftops. (Designed by ecole)

Tree Stairs

Beautiful metal tree serves as a handrail. (Designed by Architetture del Ferro)

Spiral Staircase Slide

A super fun spiral staircase design with a slide for kids.(Designer: unknown)

The Rainbow House Stairs

“The Rainbow House is a magical oasis on a busy road filled with people and noise. When you step through its front door, you enter a parallel universe of fun, colour, movement and sensuality, leaving the ordinary world far behind.” (Designed by Ab Rogers)

Emmental Stairs

“The Emmental stairs was designed for a young creative family with an equisite design taste and an eye for details and their two children. They were just starting the refurbishment of their apartment and wanted interior stairs that would harmonize with the historic ambiance of the apartment and their aesthetic requirements, but also add an extra touch to their living space.” (Designed by Biljana Jovanović)

Blood Vessel Stairs

“The home may be a machine for living, but it’s also an mechanical extension of the body.” (Designed by DMVA Architecten)

Steel Stair Mesh at Villa La Roche

“French architecture firm archiplein designed Villa La Roche in Rochebaudin with a centerpiece staircase wrapped in an irregular steel mesh.” [1] (Designed by archiplein)

Barbie Shanghai Store

Spiral staircase enclosed by eight hundred Barbie dolls. (Designed by Slade Architecture)

M Lofts

“The alternate tread stair was designed to be a perfect union of functionality, structure and form. With regard to functionality, the stair is comfortable, safe to climb, and spatially efficient; the open sides of the stair provide ample and well-placed grip locations.” (Designed by nC2architecture)

New York University Stairs

“The complete interior renovation of the 1890 corner building at 5 Washington Place for the consolidation of the New York University Department of Philosophy organizes the new spaces around light and phenomenal properties of materials. A new stair shaft below a new skylight joins the 6-level building vertically with a shifting porosity of light and shadow that change seasonally. Prismatic film was installed on the south-facing stairwell windows which occasionally break the sunlight into a prismatic rainbow.” (Designed by Steven Holl Architects)

Bookcase Staircase

“Limited by space, we melded the idea of a staircase with our client’s desire for a library to form a ‘library staircase’ in which English oak stair treads and shelves are both completely lined with books.” (Designed by Levitate Architects)

Ribbon Staircase

“The concept of a delicate rippling ribbon was chosen in view of the exposed position of the staircase in the main living area of the house. The staircase is constructed from 10mm thick sheet metal. Pairs of adjoining steps connected with an oblique external side joist form a bracket anchored in the wall. Each of the brackets is constructed as a rigid frame. The higher steps bear mainly drawing forces, while pressure is transmitted through the lower steps.” (Designed by HSH Architects)

Godzilla Stairs

“The ambiguous spatial limits, along with the light streaming in through the hidden windows, lends the place a feeling of endlessness.” (Designed by Chae-Pereira Architects)

Stairs Made From Skateboard Decks

“This is a set of steps I made for our skateboard school. The aluminium beam is a solid billet of aluminium and the decks were custom made with concave only on one edge. You should see the look on our students faces when they make the treck to the basement.” (link)

Staircase in Northampton

Sculptural staircase with glass and timber details. (Designed by Philip Watts)

Loft F27

“The concept “Black or White“ is the underlying idea of a radical new design for an urban apartment in the north of Graz. Modern architecture has transformed a two-storey apartment built in the 1990s into a multi-functional loft serving as home and office. Whereas the owners see the apartment as the perfect fusion of functional and extravagant design, some visitors tend to regard it as too austere.” [2] (Designed by Schlosser und Partner)

Storage Stairs

Creative way to use space under your stairs.(Designer: unknown)

Staircase Slide Combo

“At the request of his children, London architect Alex Michaelis installed a slide next to the staircase in their new eco-friendly dream home.” [3] (Designed by Alex Michaelis)

National Olympic Commettee House

“This work represents the idea of dynamics in sport with the abstract compositions of the staircase and the reception table. The first object you encounter is the introverted desk with its never-ending fissure, and then you meet the extroverted staircase – like the open path to Olympus, where the summit meets its own reflection, inferring that striving never ends, that there is no limit to human achievement.” (Designed by Architects of Invention)

Extreme Staircase

Designed by Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann

Timber Stripes

“Great stair for the School of Arts comprised of laminated timber. Some of the timber strips have been painted adding extra dynamics.” (Designed by Tetrarc)

Spiral Staircase

“From above and below, the wood grain provides a contrasting and changing set of fine-grain textures set against the regular rhythms of the overall stair design.” [4] (Designed by Patrick Jouin)

27 Weird and Creative Beds

We spend a lot of our time sleeping, so it’s no surprise that we need to choose the right best. In this article we’ll be looking at some weird and creative beds. Picking an ordinary looking bed is what most of us do, but did you know that beds are being redesigning by some cool industrial designers? We’ve taken a look at some surreal and crazy must see bed designs you might consider sleeping on.

A University of California, San Diego psychiatry study of more than one million adults found that people who live the longest self-report sleeping for six to seven hours each night. Another study of sleep duration and mortality risk in women showed similar results. Other studies show that “sleeping more than 7 to 8 hours per day has been consistently associated with increased mortality,” though this study suggests the cause is probably other factors such as depression and socioeconomic status, which would correlate statistically. It has been suggested that the correlation between lower sleep hours and reduced morbidity only occurs with those who wake naturally, rather than those who use an alarm.

Some of these beds look pretty comfy, while others look completely outrageous. Ultimately these beds are not the norm but showcase some interesting concepts. Which one would you like to own?

20 of History's Weirdest Inventions

When it comes to inventions, History had quite a few failures. When we think of inventions, many of us think of the Light Bulb, the Parachute and we usually can name inventors like including Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein. In today's article we've focused on History's Weirdest Inventions which failed to make the grade and live on to the present day.

The idea for an invention may be developed on paper or on a computer, by writing or drawing, by trial and error, by making models, by experimenting, by testing and/or by making the invention in its whole form. Brainstorming also can spark new ideas for an invention. Collaborative creative processes are frequently used by engineers, designers, architects and scientists. Co-inventors are frequently named on patents.

History shows that turning the concept of an invention into a working device is not always swift or direct. Inventions may also become more useful after time passes and other changes occur. For example, the parachute became more useful once powered flight was a reality.

Sit back and take a look at these 20 of History's Weirdest Inventions!

30 Awesome and Innovative Bookshelf Designs

Many of us grab books from shelves without even thinking of the Bookshelf Design it’s been sitting on. When walking to a room full of books most of us find that impressive, books contain worlds of knowledge and story telling. But sometimes Bookshelf Designs can take your attention over the books, if they’re designed with a unique and innovative way.

A bookcase, or bookshelf, is a piece of furniture, almost always with horizontal shelves, used to store books. It may be fitted with glass doors.  A bookcase consists of a unit including two or more shelves which may not all be used to contain books or other printed materials. Shelves may be fixed or adjustable to different positions in the case. In rooms entirely devoted to the storage of books they may be permanently fixed to the walls and/or floor.

In today’s post we’ll be looking at 30 Awesome and Innovative Bookshelf Designs, these bookshelf designs are very stylish with different ways of turning a usually boring concept into something new and exciting!

Ambient Advertising is an unusual and creative method of advertising which can be seen in unusual places where you wouldn’t normally see an ad. The best thing about Ambient Advertising is they can be seen just about anywhere, they can be quirky and unusual making the viewer think.

When did Ambient Advertising start?

Ambient Media started to appear in British media jargon around 1999, but now seems to be firmly established as a standard term within the advertising industry. It is the name given to a new breed of out-of-home products and services determined by some as non-traditional or alternative media. Ambient media advertising can be used in conjunction with mainstream traditional media, or used equally effectively as a stand-alone activity. The key to a successful ambient media campaign is to choose the best media format available and combined with effective message.
