House and accessories

I have a slight obsession over furniture at the moment. It makes me want to revamp my whole room and then move on to the house. It all started when I just wanted some mahogany bookcases. I have these white boring bookcases that are just 'blegh'. Then I decided to do some graphic designs on them. this led me to some crazy places. Hours of sidetracking. I dragged a few people along with me xD
This site didn't help: http://freshome.com/ I am still exploring new categories. Even though I can't afford anything on the site I am drawn to it. Gah~
Though, it does give me inspiration to work on other things. I've been in a slump about reusing materials, so this site helped a bit. A lot of the stuff featured seems to be in a minimalist theme, which goes along with my current mood: throw out stuff I haven't used in the past year.
Though there are a few disturbing things on the site such as a human table and a gas mask shower. Oh well, to each their own.
I do like the vortex fountain and the garden furniture. There were also some really cool sinks like the aquarium sink and the drawer sink. They seemed to like wooden bathtubs too...But what really got me were the bookcases and beds! So many different kinds of beds~ ( list of some crazy looking beds)
I thought the swing beds were pretty neat, but you gotta have a really sturdy frame to hold them. Not for shifty sleepers either...And there is a definite fascination with suspended/floating beds. Good for storage and such, but you better hope that bed is sturdy and can hold weight, right?
Oh! bookcases...I originally found this site by looking for unique bookcases, like this one. Then it moved on to rainbow bookshelves and ceiling bookshelves. Ceiling bookshelves aren't as exciting but I thought it was a good idea.
Another place had an expandable bookshelf that was really interesting. Good idea but it seems kinda bulky. I thought the X bookcase was really nice looking...But the scale bookcase was by far the coolest thing my friend found (yup procrastination at its best). We decided the infinity bookcase would be awesome. Especially in a school or library. We want it.
