furniture_play - TABLE UPCYCLE by Annabelle Guldner

furniture_play - DOOR AND SAW HORSE UPCYCLE
I love how our little improvised conference/indoor dining table turned out! With little money, some inspiration and imagination, I now have a unique, one-of and functioning table built entirely from reused materials and tools! Metal saw horses, two birch doors from craigslist, some paint and screws is all it took! And when it's time to let it go, it won't hurt. But for now, hell to the yeah - I think it works and I think it looks fun and good!

furniture_play - A SPACE WITHIN A SPACE by Annabelle Guldner

I needed a little bit of a change, so I decided to integrate my work area into the master bedroom. We use this great room in our current home as our master bedroom, so it's open to the rest of the house, which is what we Iike. This makes the office space part of other spaces and let's me be part of the hustle and bustle while I work... this might sound weird, but it's important to me and I work best that way. It's just another example on how important it is that our homes are fine-turned to work for us and support us in the way we live and work. My beautiful custom desk found its new spot and its design is more elevated in the semi-private area. 
I'm an advocate for flexible and responsive design solutions and home transformations in existing structures to render them the perfect platform for your way of life! Quality of life changes everything and so does design.

furniture_play - midcentury transformations by Annabelle Guldner

Remember this one? I finally had a chance to fully transform this gem! Some oil, 2 paint colors and a metallic spray paint did the trick! I love the result and can't wait to get started on the other piece!

art_play DESIGN SKETCHING by Annabelle Guldner

Sketching and free-hand drawings are so important as a designer and builder. Drawing is our language and being able to communiate effectively and quickly is crucial too. Besides the proessional benefit, sketching is a stress reliever and helps to relax the mind. It still requires high concentration but the honing of that skill will reach far beyond just drawing. It will improve your spatial awareness, perception of proportion, attantion to detail and overall sensitivity for shape and form. It will make you better designer, an help you leap forward.
I enjoy sketching, especially objects; you learn things you might have not seen or noticed before. It helps me to feel more confident with clients and strategies to keep everyone on the same page when it comes to the understanding of the process and game plan.

furniture_play NEED A GUEST BED? A QUICK AND CREATIVE SOLUTION... by Annabelle Guldner

furniture_play A QUICK AND UNIQUE GUEST BED DESIGN
We had just moved to Colorado Springs and were expecting our first house guests there. Having moved from Savannah, Georgia to Colorado we downsized and took as little as possible, therefore only one original and custom master bed went with us... leaving us short of a guest bed.

Yes we could've bought an inexpensive bedframe and mattress at IKEA... but what's the fun in that?? Instead we bought some concrete block, a couple of 2x6's and 2 sheets of plywood.... voila! It's comfy, unique and original! It took us about 4 hours of our time and some imagination! Our guests love it!

furniture_play PANTON by Annabelle Guldner

furniture_play PANTON CHAIR
The Panton chair designed by Verner Panton in the 60's and from the very first moment that I saw it has been one of my favorite classic chairs. It was the first moulded plastic chair of its kind! It's a masterpiece of technology as well as ergonomic design and its iconic shape and forward thinking shape makes it a perfect addition to modern and contemporary interiors. It has been produced in collaboration with Vitra starting in 1967 and at the vitra design museum in Weil am Rhein you get to indulge in the fascinating world of this and other pieces of furniture design history!

furniture_impro HAT BOX TO TABLE by Annabelle Guldner

TRANSFORMATION FROM HAT BOX TO SIDE TABLE!

UPCYCLE FUN
so I had these 3 hat boxes laying around... and I didn't know what to do with them for the longest time. But my passion for multi-functional and practical furniture pieces took over... so they got a face lift with some paint and hand-drawn patterns and with some planning, clever mechanics and assembling they turned into a useful side table that offers a lot of different configurations with different surfaces, storage and just a cool sculptural piece that always strikes a conversation! My kind of upcycling!
