If you’re one to sleep with your light open due to some crazy childhood prank, here is a pretty convenient alternative. Light Carpet comes from Imu Design and was designed by Johanna Hyrkas.

All the items presented have the purpose of pointing out how, in fact, “rural realities are influencing urban life” and how little by little the stressful urban existance will make room for the peace and quietness of the countrey-side. You can observe the rest of the designs in the exposition here. The pouffes in the images below come from Christien Meindertsma. They are colorful, playful and vivid, which is quite the oposite of the whole idea of being stressed out. You can sit on them, put them on top of each other, throw them chaoticaly around the room, they will still bring a fresh touch no matter where they are placed.
