Billy, Malm, and a Man With a Plan: Baby Closet Hack Edition

This remarkable video, which we spotted on Core 77, shows a Flat-Pack Maison Demontable being constructed in time lapse.  The Maison Demontable, created by designer Jean Prouvé, was created in 1945 to be used in French colonies in Africa.  Only three were ever built and shipped.

Recently, though, French art dealer Patrick Seguin, who owns 9 Maison Demontables, allowed the team at Design Miami to construct one of his. The video below shows the...

PANYL for Kitchens: From Sterling White to Customized Right

In a post titled "Kitchens with Contrast," Home Designing featured some lovely kitchen pics by Artem Evstigneev which show off divine wood surfaces, natural light, and sterling white decorative walls and cabinetry. The latter makes these kitchens highly PANYLable, so we wanted to take the contrast-o-meter a notch (or four) higher to show you the power of PANYL in the kitchen.

Robin's Egg and Lemon Drop are on...

I Believe I Can Ply: Sideways Expedit Storage Hack with Maple Trim

PANYL Profile: Valentina Rambone - Global Google Girl

That Valentina Rambone is an analytical lead at Google leads us to believe she has mad technology skills as well as an appreciation of and knack for great design. If we had to venture a guess, we’d say that growing up in Italy, studying in Germany, and getting a master’s in marketing in Ireland had something to do with honing her sharp eye. Throw in a four-month stint in Phoenix—all the better to learn about the...
