This ultra modern house is designed for a young family in the suburbs of Vienna. The house displays geometric architectural elements used throughout the building. The structure has four levels, three above ground and one below. The interior is ultra modern and designed with minimalist architecture. Especially living room is so comfortable and so modern. Giant windows of the house give home a very natural look. Because green garden, blue sky, and swimming pool can easily be seen from the inside of the house with the help of these giant windows. The main colour used in this house is white to widen the space and maximize the natural light. Green colour adds a touch of nature to the house as well. House with ultra modern architecture is a project made by Austrian architecture company Caramel Architects.

Towels Made of Raw Linen

Designed in 2002, raw linen is used to create the fog linen waffle towels. To create this product, an example of a waffle towel is brought in cotton to sewers. Through various experiments, they were able to successfully create the waffle texture designer desired in linen. With neatly squared corners and basic, functional shapes, there's an honest simplicity to designer's work, which is also reflected in how the fog linen collection began. Fog linen towel collection at Design Within Reach is designed by Japanese designer Yumiko Sekine by using raw linen from Lithuania.

Sofa Design in 1960s Style

There can't be any better sofa design like this sofa, which reminds us of 1960s home designs. The inspiration for the Nelson Marshmallow Sofa (1956) was launched when an inventor approached George Nelson and Irving Harper with a planned self-skinned injection plastic disc that would be inexpensive to produce and unerringly durable. The inventor's vision for high-resiliency, low-cost cushions never came to fruition, but the design was so compelling that Herman Miller chose to produce it anyway. Designed with both residential and commercial applications in mind, the cushions are detachable for easy cleaning and therefore interchangeable to equalize wear. The atom-like appearance of the Marshmallow Sofa is a precursor to the aesthetic style of the pop art of the 1960s. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller, Inc. Nelson is a trademark of Herman Miller, Inc. It is easy to create a pop art interior design reflecting the years of 1960s with Nelson marshmallow sofa in crepe at Design Within Reach.

Modern Minimalist Coffee Table Design

Beginning with reclaimed fir timbers from old buildings, a proprietary low-VOC process is used to coat the wood with a brilliant layer of silver. The table is not electroplated as that would result in toxic runoff. The stunning surface plays up the true character of the wood, bringing out intricate and unique details of each piece. The silver is allowed to tarnish in some areas, and then the entire surface is protected with a clear coat finish to prevent any further tarnish. As for the name of this table, "47" is the atomic number of silver, and the height of the table is 47cm (18.5"). One & Co. is led by three designers, Jonah Becker, Claude Zellweger and Scott Croyle, who describe their process as "informed intuition that combines art and science, business and creativity, intelligence and beauty." If they could just bottle that combo, they'd be billionaires. Keeping an eye on the sustainability of our planet is also crucial to One & Co., and their 47 Table (2010) is no exception. 47 table at Design Within Reach is a modern minimalist coffee table design that can be used in any type of home from modern, contemporary to classic, or traditional.
