Comments Off on nice rack.

Nothing says summer like clothes drying on the line . But if you don’t have a back yard or if the bad weather won’t dry your clothes, get an indoor drying rack. Drying racks are inexpensive and you’ll make the money back in no time by saving on the electricity consumed by your dryer. Just be sure to get a good one that won’t fall down!  Here’s a sexy tip to stay cool:  in the summer months, place a fan in front of your wet hanging clothes to help bring the room temperature down a little.  Another bonus: drying your clothes in your bedroom during the winter months can help bring a little moisture back into the dry winter air, and your dry winter skin – how neat is that?!

Comments Off on Transformer Furniture: A Sofa Bed With A Twist

Traditional sofa beds, where you have to remove all the cushions and unfold the bed, are a pain and not very comfortable. But for smaller spaces and studios, transformers can save a lot of space and serve multiple functions. Thomas Althaus has designed a sofa bed with a twist- you rotate one of the arms of the L and connect it up with the other to make a double.
