Solar-powered Teardrop Trailer

witer

Trailers are fun to take a holiday in, and the teardrop shaped ones are cool from the inside out. This trailer, designed by the startup Homegrown Trailers of Woodinville, WA is made of wood, which gives it an extra bit of charm.

We’ve seen a lot of tiny homes over the years, but what really sets this one apart is the seamless blending of the old and the new.

Furniture on Wheels

Putting wheels on pieces of furniture is not exactly a new idea, and I’m rather surprised not to see this type of solution employed by tiny home designers more often. Perhaps these Movables pieces designed by PolyLester for the Kunstfort Vijfhuizen arts center in Holland will yield some inspiration. (more…)
