The summer arrives and we all have to update our terraces. Winter is usually hard with outdoor furniture and as soon as the heat starts it is time to update our garden or balcony. Today I bring you a "before and after" that has made Txaumes, our companion of Xataka along with his partner and that has turned out to be a spectacular change only by varnishing a bamboo gutter that they had in one of the angles of the terrace.
The windows, the big unknown for their materials and their color. Today we make a foray into the world of enclosure and sealing, informing about the possibilities and characteristics that we can find today in the market. All homes need a specific typology in their enclosures and windows are a fundamental part of controlling light, cold, heat, noise and safe insulation.

These doors are a trend in decoration and preserve the privacy of each space providing a unique environment according to each termination.

How is it possible that a video of a man opening and closing windows has almost a million and a half visits on YouTube and caused a furor on Reddit? Well, basically because the Americans hallucinate with the tilt-and-turn windows, accustomed as they are to the classic sash windows that we see in every movie.
In Decoesfera we are always on the hunt and capture of signatures or furniture with personality. Furniture that brings a plus to any space and that makes it different. Furniture like those of Arkaia. And what is special about these furniture made in the Basque Country? The furniture that leaves the workshop of this firm that denies industrial production is obtained with irregular and unique trunks that do not fit in the large furniture factories that manufacture in series and looking for uniform furniture.
Cucula means in Hausa, one of the West African languages to "take care of each other" and that is precisely what a Berlin-based design and handicraft company that was founded to provide jobs for refugees in West Africa seeks . His most special designs are the limited edition collection of 50 pinewood chairs that also incorporate shipwrecked ship materials from the Italian island of Lampedusa.
The Bauhaus has no doubt that marked a fundamental era in the design of modern furniture. There are many fans of this type of design, straight lines, easy to combine and that adapts perfectly to many current interiors (although the life of the Bauhaus goes from the happy 20s until the rise of the Nazi party) But It seems that having furniture inspired by the great designers of the Bahaus as its creator, the German architect Walter Adolph Georg Gropius, his last director Mies van der Rohe, is the dream of many decoration and design lovers.
In the face of massification and mass consumption, it is increasingly necessary to make a difference and create spaces with personality. Buy products manufactured in our environment, with quality materials, and above all, that give flavor to our home. La Letrera, a young company born in 2013 and located in a small Aragonese town, is perfectly framed in this philosophy of life.
The maximum of a DIY is that it is a simple activity to perform, cheap and that it is the handmade version of a very expensive piece that you love but you can not afford. That's why when I saw the proposal of Camille Styles I was very excited, it shows us how to do nothing more and nothing less than the Assemblages Leather Shelves of the Australian house Lightly, which bought cost 198 euros.

I like green, in fact I like all green ... green I love you green, green walls, green doors, green windows, green beams. I like the green moss, the English green, in fact I love the Scottish green, the mint green, the pistachio green, the emerald green, the water green like the eyes of the naiads, all the greens have a moment and a place.
For some time now we have seen enough ideas to use wooden boxes - whether new or recycled - as a shelf, although normally the idea was simply limited to hanging the box on the wall sideways. In this case, the idea is to cut the boxes in half to use as shelves, but placing them on the wall in their usual position, so that the most original effect is achieved.
The innovative Evolution Door by Klemens Torggler presents a new door paradigm, not only because its design is very original, but because it has created a different way to open a door. This innovative design makes it possible to move the door sideways without rails, a system similar to the sliding door but even simpler.
At first glance they look like three chairs that magically are sinking into the wall, but in reality 'Wairs' are coat racks made with recycled chairs, cut and placed upside down, in such a way that they give this impression. The industrial designer Nikos Tsoumanis proposes 'Wairs', some very original coat racks, made from the classic bent tubular wooden chairs, such as the Thonet chair, hanging from the wall in such a way that the legs protrude as a hook to hang the clothes.
The traditional cutlery for serving or cooking wood is fashionable, but this time custom, part of the handles are usually painted with colored enamels. My partner Raquel showed us how to do it in Do it yourself: paint your wooden kitchen utensils with colors. The novelty lies in the fact that it is not only the cutlery serving that is made of wood but the cutlery to eat, what do you think?
Industrial lofts have been in fashion for years, old factories or old warehouses transformed into homes or studios without walls, converted into splendid open rooms. They are characterized by their wide spaces, gigantic heights, their decadent aesthetics and their beautiful windows.
Jaime Tresserra is an artist who works the wood with the same delicacy that a jeweler sets his precious stones. It has been called "the jeweler of the marquetry", "the tailor of the wood" and a thousand and one more adjectives every time one of its spectacular pieces of furniture is exhibited in its brand new Rivoli street shop, just in front of the Louvre Museum, in Paris, which has allowed it to make its way not only in the French market, but in those in Germany and the United Kingdom, two countries famous for their noble wood furniture and delicate works.
Till Könneker is a Swiss designer who, after moving to his new apartment in Bern, began to notice that he had plenty of space and lacked storage, especially to save his vinyl collection and hide all those ugly things, (stoves, ski equipment, folding chairs ...) that we do not like to be visible while we do not use them.
I love math, especially algebra and geometry. Perhaps that is why I am excited about D * Table, the most versatile coffee table, whose flexibility is based on the problem of Haberdasher, a puzzle of the mathematician Henry Ernest Dudeney that consisted of converting a square into an equilateral triangle.
