Harbour Attic is an apartment located in the charming fishing village of Camogli, in the province of Genoa, Italy. With a main bedroom and then a multifunctional space that has a hidden bed in the floor, this place can sleep quite a few people in it.
“The house is located in the old fishermen village of Camogli. The project aim was to build two bedrooms, a studio, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom, despite the gambrel roof and the very small floor surface. That led to a custom-cut apartment, where each room is a furniture: after you have used it, you can close it.”
Today I’m asking for your help: I have been trying to find a chair that can serve as a decent desk chair, but also something that is super comfortable enough to lounge in to read a book or watch a movie. Up until this point I have had two chairs (or a desk chair and a couch): One for working and one for relaxation.
If you think about it, they are quite different. A desk chair is more up right, not made for laying back and kicking your feet up. While a lounge chair typically allows you to stretch out, lean back and take a load off. Currently the chairs I have a standard desk chair and then an Ikea POÃ„NG chair with an ottoman. The POÃ„NG chair is incredibly comfortable and leans pretty far back. You couldn’t easily work at a desk in this type of chair.
It seems like a lot of my generation really likes to use there laptop on their lap while sitting on the couch, but I can’t seem to do any real work when trying that. Since I work from home, I do need a place to get serious work done, which it can be tricky to both live and work in a tiny house. I also have a desktop, so I need to be at a desk for that reason as well.
What chair can I use for a good desk chair, that is also super comfortable to read or watch in?
This 150 square foot student’s apartment was built in the attic. I don’t have too much information on this one because the architect, Sylvie Cahen doesn’t have too much on her website, plus I am terrible at French. The apartment was commissioned by a student and the house fits her quite well. Though the apartment wouldn’t be good for anyone over 6 feet, it looks quite open for being so small.
I was emailed by this designer and thought it was really interesting. There are several pieces of furniture in this video that I have seen before, but there are some new ones. The nice thing to see is them all integrated into one space. Below is a video of the house’s features being demonstrated.
