  • Contemporary Space Saving Dining Table

    Multi-functional furniture that saves on space yet is design led and stylish is hard to come by. However, Urban Living Interiors introduces the Punto Extendable Table that transforms from a coffee table to a dining table for four. Sadly, when we visited the site it loaded incredibly slowly, which was irritating, but it is worth the wait as they have some nice pieces.
    space saver table
    For many of us, making the most of the little space we have in urban apartments can be tricky. For this, Urban Living Interiors has the most ingenious piece of furniture in the form of the extendable coffee table that turns into a dining table.

    It starts as a coffee table on wheels which you can adjust to the height that you require. Then when you need it to be a dining table, raise it up to full height to seat two people comfortably for dinner. Finally if you are having people over for dinner the top of the table lifts to open to become a large dining table that will seat four.
    space saver table
    This stunning table comes with chrome legs and matt white lacquer finish to the table top, but alternative wood finishes are available.

  • 2010 ... Year of the Home Exchange?

    If the ‘stay-cation’ was the holiday phenomenon of 2009, could 2010 be the year of the home exchange?
    homes club
    Millions of Britons chose to spend their holidays at home last year as the economic recession took hold, and with confidence still not fully restored, would-be travellers are continuing to look for ways to keep their holiday costs down.

    One creative option is a home exchange: ‘swapping’ your property with that of another homeowner elsewhere in the world - cutting the cost of accommodation almost to zero in the process.

    “Last year seemed to be all about saving money by staying at home, while this year there’s a greater consumer willingness to travel but still an emphasis on affordability,” commented Dianne Stewart of global home exchange site Homes-Club International.

    “A home exchange is the perfect solution - providing travellers with potential access to a range of accommodation across the world while helping them to save money too.”

    A glance at a leading online travel website shows just how significant these savings could be, regardless of destination. A week-long stay from 24 July in a centrally-located three-star hotel would cost a family of four £973 in Bath and £1,035 in Geneva.

    Further afield, the same seven nights would cost £830 in Perth, Australia, £607 in Cape Town and £1,030 in Manhattan, New York.

    “Home exchange can also provide a more comfortable experience for families - a private house or apartment is generally more spacious and will have more home comforts than a hotel room or suite,” added Ms Stewart.

    The home exchange concept started in the 1950s, largely in the USA at first, then spreading across the world as demand for international travel increased and levels of home ownership grew. Although still a relatively small part of the overall travel market, it is growing quickly, partly in response to the global economic downturn.

    Home exchange typically works on a membership scheme basis, with annual membership of Homes-Club International currently priced at just £25. After joining, members are free to browse the site to identify properties in their chosen destination and make direct contact with the owners to negotiate a property swap. If second homes are involved members can use each others’ properties at different times and negotiate over length of stay.

    More details can be found at Homes-Club International website.

  • Uffizi On Another Level!

    ASPACE has pushed the frontiers of design with their stunning new Uffizi bunk bed collection. Fans of this renowned children’s furniture company are sure to be bowled over by the sheer audacity of this cool, cutting edge design. The collection was designed by Argington of New York, and is exclusive to ASPACE in the UK.

    Uffizi Bunkbed

    Uffizi Bunkbed


    The Uffizi collection offers loads of fun and functionality for the children but with an aesthetic that reflects the lifestyle of stylish modern parents.

    The Uffizi has several configurations including a semi enclosed bunk with window-like openings which kids will love and friends will covet! The matching toy box (with static feet and castors, plus slow-close safety hinges) offers useful and stylish storage. The matching bookcase / storage cupboard is a gorgeous piece of minimalist furniture in its own right which could work equally well in the bedroom, living room, playroom or study.

    The bunks can be arranged three different ways with no extra parts needed:
    • Classic Bunk style
    • Cantilever Bunk with Desk
    • High Sleeper for older children and teenagers

    The Uffizi system offers stunning detail, complete versatility, real practicality, and, most of all, immense style.

    Demand is expected to be high so ASPACE has announced the opening of a waiting list with initial stock arriving late April 2010

    More details at ASPACE.
