Balloon Chair by h220430 | via

Pop-art meets fantasy furniture design in this lighthearted seating installation appropriately named the Balloon Chair. Mounted on any wall, 10 bright balloons and one tufted leather seat give the illusion that you’re floating away in thin air. It’s the perfect place to daydream, find inspiration, or just let your imagination run wild!

Check the floating bench out too, which I’ve posted 6 month ago. Floating Bench

Grands Jardins Residence, Quebec, Canada by Bourgeois / Lechasseur Architectes | via

The Grands-Jardins home is located in the Charlevoix region, specifically in Petite-Rivière-St-François, close to the Massif ski station. It sits on the mountainside on a rocky wooded site overlooking the St. Lawrence River. One of the major challenges of the project was to position the house so as to optimize the privacy and the views offered by the site. The home is built parallel to the street and at a slight angle so as to look out over the south and the river. From the inside, you feel you are in a ship’s cabin. As the house is located on a deep slope, passersby can see the top level from the street, while on the river side, three above-ground levels elegantly rise to reveal a façade interconnected by a play of angles and glass.

This contemporary home stands out with its bold, vertiginous form. While the house is well anchored in the rock, the volume of white wood seems to lift from the ground as the lower level is set off by a series of large cement pilings. A wooden walkway connects the home to the parking area and gives an even more aerial look to the structure. The upper level seems to take flight with its galleries projecting into empty space. Without doubt the culminating point of the project is the immense overhanging living room that literally projects and opens onto the slopes of the Massif. These formal feats are achieved through the use of a steel structure; the client wanted to see this structure, mainly the bracings that frame the landscape.
