So I think this gets the Sneakhype approval, this house is straight dope, the design is insane. Located in Melbourne, Australia from the street the house’s irregular form makes the house look like nothing but once within the property the design takes form. Talk about some wood grain.

Not really. But I mean, our place looks essentially just like this, so you get a rough idea. It’s actually a high-end residential in Indonesia by Aboday Architects. It’s called the Villa Paya-Paya. My favorite thing about it is that the master bedroom is separated from the rest of the house… swanky. [dezeen] Detailed pics below.
Who doesn’t like Obama? No one reading this super fresh online magazine… that’s for damn sure. Really though, I heard somewhere, like CNN or something that McCain got like 14 and half votes in the election. I’m not sure if I believe that though… I would’ve guessed more like 8 or 9, but anyways, show even more love for your favorite president-elect by picking up this lil guy for 15 bucks.

This guy looks like he straight dominated fools in his grade school art class. Luis Luna is an industrial, graphics, and furniture designer based out of Mexico. His work is very original and has a great sense of humor. You can contact him and check out more of his portfolio here. Detailed pics of the suspension lamp below.
Pretty swanky little seat right here. It’s made up of 4 completely separate parts which sounds cool, but how does it stay together? Do you have to drill it to the ground?.. because that would be lame. If it weighs 900 lbs to stay in place… that would also be lame. And if you don’t drill it to the ground, and it doesn’t weigh 900 pounds, then it would move all over the place and probably fall apart when you try to sit on it. Verdict: lame but looks cool.

They call this the “Shel House” , it was designed by Architect Kotaro Ide, Built in the woods of Karuizawa, located in the Nagano prefecture of Japan, and it was designed to resemble a Conch shell. The home is made with reinforced cement instead of wood in order to withstand the Hot summers and Cold winters. It was meant to function as a vacation home but i think could live there all year.

Geoffrey Harcourt is responsible for these dope chairs that look like they came straight out the sixties. He’s calls them the F978 Harcourt chair and they are a good look. It has an aluminum base, leather seating and a flashy red/white colorscheme. [retrotogo]
