This is a pretty neat loft style apartment where the owner asked his designer to build him the ultimate “bachelor pad” in a small loft space. There is a ton of reclaimed lumber and other materials that was integrated into the space for charm. The loft took advantage of the tall ceilings and you’ll notice on the upper levels they used a lot of glass to not close off anything. While it isn’t tiny, it is a small apartment for sure. Here is what came of it.
Harbour Attic is an apartment located in the charming fishing village of Camogli, in the province of Genoa, Italy. With a main bedroom and then a multifunctional space that has a hidden bed in the floor, this place can sleep quite a few people in it.
“The house is located in the old fishermen village of Camogli. The project aim was to build two bedrooms, a studio, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom, despite the gambrel roof and the very small floor surface. That led to a custom-cut apartment, where each room is a furniture: after you have used it, you can close it.”
Today I’m asking for your help: I have been trying to find a chair that can serve as a decent desk chair, but also something that is super comfortable enough to lounge in to read a book or watch a movie. Up until this point I have had two chairs (or a desk chair and a couch): One for working and one for relaxation.
If you think about it, they are quite different. A desk chair is more up right, not made for laying back and kicking your feet up. While a lounge chair typically allows you to stretch out, lean back and take a load off. Currently the chairs I have a standard desk chair and then an Ikea POÄNG chair with an ottoman. The POÄNG chair is incredibly comfortable and leans pretty far back. You couldn’t easily work at a desk in this type of chair.
It seems like a lot of my generation really likes to use there laptop on their lap while sitting on the couch, but I can’t seem to do any real work when trying that. Since I work from home, I do need a place to get serious work done, which it can be tricky to both live and work in a tiny house. I also have a desktop, so I need to be at a desk for that reason as well.
What chair can I use for a good desk chair, that is also super comfortable to read or watch in?
This 150 square foot student’s apartment was built in the attic. I don’t have too much information on this one because the architect, Sylvie Cahen doesn’t have too much on her website, plus I am terrible at French. The apartment was commissioned by a student and the house fits her quite well. Though the apartment wouldn’t be good for anyone over 6 feet, it looks quite open for being so small.
I was emailed by this designer and thought it was really interesting. There are several pieces of furniture in this video that I have seen before, but there are some new ones. The nice thing to see is them all integrated into one space. Below is a video of the house’s features being demonstrated.
