According to The Guardian, famous football team and sports institution Real Madrid, recently uncovered their plans to develop a project entitled Real Madrid Resort Island in collaboration to the government of the Emirate of Ras al-Khaimah. The talked about $1 billion investment will result in exclusive villas, a 5-star hotel, an amusement park, a club museum and the world’s first stadium with one side open to the sea. “Real Madrid Resort Island will be a major tourist and sporting center of great dimensions and the highest level. This extraordinary complex will attract millions of people looking for quality leisure services. It is a decisive and strategic step that will strengthen our institution in the Middle East and Asia“, explained Florentino Pérez, the president of Real. The island designed by J+H Boiffils, will be shaped like the team’s logo and is said to attract around one million visitors in 2015, its first opening year.

Companies such as West Elm and CB2 have developed a whole range of apartment-size sofas and seating for small-space dwellers, and for good reason: The sofa is usually the most space-consuming furniture piece in a home. Opt for sofas that have a shallower depth, 37 inches or less. Skip oversized, rolled arms — which can waste a foot or more of floor space — and pick a modern, streamlined style with thinner arms. Less arm space also means more seating; in fact, an armless sofa or a one-armed chaise is the ultimate space-saving seating solution.
