Inspired by the beautifully sculptural effect of curved architectural walls, the work of French interior designer Francois Champsaur, has a beautiful smooth timber finish.
Trocadero Apartment by Francois Champsaur
Bold in black and incredibly textural, this piece was designed by CM Studio.
It features a distinctive curved batten pod that cleverly conceals the apartment’s bathroom.

Curved walls are visually interesting and work well to soften sharp lines of an
interior space. The same effect can be created with a room divider, furniture,
or smaller design pieces such as ceramics and art. Here are some examples.
I discovered a wonderful new source for furniture online called The French Connection. These are my favorites.
One old chair found at a garage sale: $1
One can of spray paint; $6
One “new’ chair for my desk: Awesome recycled for a mere $7 bucks
A neighbor cut down a 150 ft. pine tree so I’m doing some recycling
and turning these beautiful tree stumps into side table/stools.

Not sure if I should leave them au natural or paint them?
Very cool industrial style bench made with recycled materials.
