Did you ever think that a highly functional object such as a ladder could ever gain the attention of a curious designer? I was personally blown away by the elegance confined in the Tenzing Ladder, developed by Fritz Specht and discovered by our site on Yanko Design. The object originates in a student’s plan to come up with a ladder that no one would think about placing out of sight.

According to the designer, what makes Tenzing Ladder become more than an undesirable object you would commonly want hidden in the closet, lies in its elegant features: “wider steps and longer beams allow comfortable and fearless working in the height. Light bulbs, power drills and other equipment are stored in the tool bag and remain at hand on top of the ladder. Furthermore, the warm birch wood and smooth curves form an object that becomes a part of the living space”. With such a nice looking ladder around the house, enthusiasm in handiwork is bound to take off.

Vega Architecture’s design for the Busch Home in Lakewood, CO is a wonderful example of how a sunken living room can still maintain a sleek, modern look. By keeping the depth of the pit fairly shallow and using furniture with clean, wooden lines, the space still feels light and airy. A pop of warm, lighter colored carpeting also creates a nice texture change when paired with the harder but more durable tile used on the higher level. When Amber Flooring installed their engineered prefinished square edge Stilnovo-Afrormosia planks throughout the Los Gatos home, they didn’t forget the living area’s conversation pit. Now the space is lined with the warm material, making it the perfect spot to curl up around the fireplace.

Now it’s my turn to share some Decoist design advice with you! First up, we see a grouping of small items displayed on the DIY Round Shelf I created for a previous Decoist post. When deciding what to display, avoid overcrowding your shelf in terms of weight and height. For a small round shelf like the one displayed in the two images below, lightweight items are essential. Plus, smaller items allow the shape of the shelf to truly shine. Also consider what’s on display near the shelf you’re styling. An example is the open shelving featured in my kitchen tour. I’ve filled it with an array of teapots, coffee pots, cake stands, serving trays and more. So when it came time to style the shelving of the nearby garden window, I kept it simple. Just a few items did the trick, preventing the kitchen from being overwhelmed by “stuff”.
