Böle Tannery lies just south of the Arctic Circle in Böle, Sweden. Established in 1899, it is now one of the last remaining bark tanneries in the world. The tannery is committed to sustainable business practices using spruce bark and vegetable tanning: hides are a by-product and spruce bark grows all around Böle. Tanning changes a raw hide into leather (Böle Tannery uses only the best quality animal hides) and the application of spruce bark tanning, a typically slow process using spruce bark and clean water (with absolutely no chemicals), affords the leather both a unique color and undamaged surface. Consequently no further treatment – such as dying or painting – is required, and hides are dried in fresh air. Read More

Transparent wall becomes limiting, including the distribution of wet and dry areas. Apparently a lot of benefits you know. The entire wall adjacent to the bedroom area can be made of Transparent Glass Walls. Similarly, boundary between wet and dry areas. Bathroom with form like this may seem unusual, and not too wide as well size. But, still looks luxurious thanks to the use of marble on the walls and floor.
We gathered a bunch of 25 transparent bathrooms designed with elegant lines and modern furnishings. It’s pure poetry to have a bathroom with a view, be it a water tower, a tree, a lake or a park. I have to admit that overlooking the garden while having a bath sounds really good! Read More
These artistic furnishings by McCollin Bryan make use of some really nice materials. My favorite has to be the Lunar Table (first and third pic), the brass combined with the dark blue resin is an amazing combination not only in color but materials as well. At first I thought these resin tops were glass but they are a high polished resin. The combination of colors and base materials could be limitless. Some of his concrete work caught my attention as well. I believe that most of these pieces are in limited editions which make them very unique pieces of art. Read More
