Furniture Design: The 'Poised Table' made of steel by designer Paul Cocksedge

Be Inspired by this tabledesign ...... A perfectly balanced table made of steel by UK designer Paul Cocksedge. "Poised table" has been made as a limited edition of 10 pieces. Paul Cocksedge doesn’t mess around. He’s so confident in the strength and design of his poised table that he doesn’t mind standing on its edge. Made from a thousand pounds of rolled steel, the table is actually perfectly designed (thanks to math and physics) that it can withstand holding up a human being without toppling over. Impressive!

Tulip Staircase at The Queen's House, Royal Museums Greenwich

Wow! What a beautiful spiral staircase. Love the elegant shape. This Tulip Stairs is situated in the Queen's House and nowadays part of the National Maritime Museum. The elegant Tulip Stairs is the first geometric self-supporting spiral stair in Britain. Although called the 'tulip' stairs, it is thought that the stylized flowers in the wrought-iron balustrade are actually fleurs-de-lis, as this was the emblem of the Bourbon family of which Queen Henrietta Maria (wife of Charles I) was a member.

Interior Design: Luis Puerta - Inspiring Spanish Interior Designer

Love the decorating work from this fantastic interior designer, Luis Puerta. Luis Puerta is an interior designer from Madrid, Spain. He has a fantastic feeling for style, elegance and harmony. He seeks to create spaces that are serene, elegant and timeless. He seems very much influenced by French design and uses mirrors in his spaces quite often. Take note because his mirror applications are pretty spectacular - such a great way to make a space appear much larger than it is.
