The Butterfly Chair is my favorite item

The leather butterfly chair is my favorite item .
The chair a cushy,light-weight and suitable for any room and any style.

The butterfly chair was designed by Jorge Ferrari Hardoy , Antonio Bonet and Juan Kurchan for an apartment building they designed in Buenos Aires in 1938.The chair combined metal with leather and promoted “the fusion of art, crafts and industrial production”
One from 3 pre-production chairs is at the Frank Lloyd Wright house Fallingwater,one at MOMA

The sense of tranquility by Japanese architect

Today I am sharing with you a project of Japanese studio Hiroyuki Ogawa Architects ,that inspired me .The project is interior design of pharmacy.
The architect describe :” We carefully chose materials and composed space to have customers to feel “tranquil” and “kindness” . I think that they have reached their goal .
The space has clean lines and monochrome colors ,that create calm and tranquil sense.
Although the space has no windows, the good planned lighting compensates for this lack . I like this space.

Let’s clean your shelves

Today I want to talk about a release. Every home has items, souvenirs from trips no longer in use or not happy homeowners and they take up much space on the shelves and space of the house. I belong to the type of people who collect things for many years and every time while cleaning they say: ” I’m sorry to throw this thing, I may need it sometime”.
In this period before the holidays I decided to throw all unused objects.
After the cleaning I felt so good. A feeling of liberation and freedom .
I highly recommend that you occasionally do a home inspection, what you can toss or donate.
Now I have a half-empty shelves and the house has more space. I am ready for new beginnings.

היום אני רוצה לדבר אל שחרור. בכל בית יש חפצים, מזכרות מטיולים שכבר לא בשימוש או לא משמחים את בעלי הבית והם תופסים הרבה מקום במדפים ובחלל הבית. אני שייכת לסוג אנשים שאוספים דברים הרבה שנים וכל פעם בזמן הניקיון אומרים שחבל לזרוק את הדבר, אולי אני אצטרך אותו מתישהו .
בתקופה זאת שלפני חגים אני החלטתי לזרוק את כל החפצים שלא בשימוש .
אחרי הניקיון הרגשתי כל כך טוב . הרגשה של שחרור וחופש.
אני מאוד ממליצה לכם מדי פעם לעשות בדיקה בבית, מה אפשר לזרוק או לתרום.
עכשיו יש לי מדפים חצי ריקים ובבית יש יותר מקום .אני מוכנה להתחלות חדשות.
