Furnish – Furniture and Interior Design for the 21st Century

furnish.jpgThis book is not for the conservative interior designer. This collection is plush, progressive, future, fun, make-shift, and a mesh of ideas to push your concept of furniture.

“Furnish presents furniture and rooms that are redefining our current understanding of furnishings and interior design. The book documents and puts into context recent work by designers, artists and architects who are creating and using furniture in pioneering ways. The experimental objects and spaces documented in Furnish are not only a sure indicator of the trends that will be influencing interiors for the next few years, but they also serve as innovative examples of interdisciplinary design work that are inspiring for anyone working creatively.”

I have been aware of the issues on the CNN home page for some time now, and thought a new design was in order, and well overdue.

The blog reviews I have read about the new beta design have been mixed, but for mine I would say that, although not fantastic, it is a step in the right direction.

I can say this because I’ve already considered the design direction in which CNN should be headed. Here’s one I prepared earlier. Literally. Over 4 months ago I took some time to redesign the CNN homepage addressing some design and layout issues.
