Kulle Cosy Daybed

cosy day bed grey wool

The Kulle Daybed was designed by Stefanie Schissler as a way to evoke those cozy feelings of safety and relaxation.

Created as school project, Kulle aims to inspire an emotional connection with its owner through touch and trying it out.

It looks a bit like a cloud and seems to be sooo cosy !

A gondola car as the world smallest chalet!

cabine oeuf chalet bois

At the occasion of the Alps Homes Show in Meribel, Christophe Lapergue was asked to restyle an old gondola in Les 2 Alpes.

It is in a mountain spirit, recalling the first discoveries with snow, skiing and mountain, he imagined it to be, he wishes, your best memory of skiing.

Here the “egg cabin” makeover
