PUFFY Garden

Better Homes & Gardens' illustrated design for a deer-proof garden is soft, fuzzy and amoeba-like. (They suggest allium and daffodils.)

How else could an illustrator paint a bird's eye view of foliage successfully?

I'd like to see this image made into a 3-D stuffed decorative pillow.

LUIGI COLANI Rotor House

Luigi Colani's Rotor House is an awesomely self-contained 6 x 6 meter pod. With rotating bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, you could live in a tiny space sans issue.

I think I would trip in the dark trying to enter the bathroom.

I also love the how the house is stackable.

This South African Terracotta Mud CHANDELIER is sold through (amaridianusa.com)

Its organic design creates a luxurious dripping effect. So DIVINE!
