A house is not complete without some furniture in it. Not only is it used for functional purposes such as providing comfortable surfaces for sitting, resting or sleeping, furniture also decorates you home.
There is an endless variety of it. Furniture pieces come in various sizes and are made of different materials. Many people prefer their home furniture to be made of wood. This is a commonly-found material that is strong and very versatile.
Moreover, it is durable and can be manipulated by professionals or beginners. As long as you have the right tools, you can work on some interesting and highly functional beginner woodworking projects. With some practice and creativity, you can actually create some amazing items.
To inspire you, here are 10 amazing wood items of furniture for your lovely house.
1. The Unique Capstan Table
Have you ever seen a wooden table that can expand in size while retaining its shape? If not, welcome to the Capstan table. It was designed by David Fletcher and has a chic, round shape.
He designed it such that the table has a number of panels which can be moved to increase its size while retaining its circular shape. It offers you the chance to have a table that can host few or many guests easily.
The Capstan table also looks like a work of art when it is folded into its smaller form.
2. The Staircase Storage Solution
One of the resources that we can’t get enough of in our homes is storage. We need to have as much space to store our stuff as possible. Are you wondering how to get more storage space without cluttering your house with cabinets?
Then the staircase storage solution is ideal for you. Made out of wood, it is a series of drawers stacked upon each other in a shape that resembles a pyramid section. It was designed by Danny Kuo and is upright and vertical in design.
The 3 lower drawers have wooden lids that transform them into a short staircase that can help you reach the higher drawers. Moreover, there is a side rail to help you stay secure as you climb. With this unit in your home, you will never run out of storage space.
3. The Evolution Door
Doors are a security unit for our homes. They help us to secure rooms or even separate them. Traditionally, they swiveled on a pair of hinges in a swinging motion. Created by artist Klemens Torggler, the Evolution door changes this form of movement entirely.
The door folds upon itself like a sculpture made using the ancient art of paper folding from Japan known as Origami. To open or close, it splits halfway into two independently-moving panels that settle to its side.
You do not need to use excessive force to move it because it transforms on its own weight. Moreover, these panels are firmly attached to each other. This gives the unit a long, durable shelf period and it will last as long as any other furniture in your home.
Wow your guests and give a futuristic atmosphere in your home using the Evolution door. View this futuristic door by visiting www.homedit.com
