While perusing the long (and somtimes dreary) aisles at the recent Las Vegas Market,
one booth caught our eye, and it was aptly called "Color&Life." Color&Life
are a San Diego based company that make a fun european style modular furniture system. The pieces we saw appeared to be marketed to a younger set (teens, early college, etc..), but the simplicity and functionality of the design made us think they could work for adults as well. One collection in particular, the Loft
, looked like it would be perfect for small spaces, or even if you had an office and wanted the ability to make it a guest room as well.
In "the Loft", there is a desk area that is raised on a platform, and the bed rolls out from underneath. If you get the larger version of the bed, the part that sticks out can double as a couch. All of Color&Life's products are offered in a multitude of colored veneers that are painted with non-toxic paints and are made with recycled wood. You can check out their showroom for more information, or their website.
