Creativity and courage go hand in hand and when I say that I’m thinking about Benedetto Bufalino’s surprising transformation of a Seat Ibiza Sedan into a welcoming Jacuzzi. Perfect for outdoor days when all you can think about is relaxation, this impressive transformation is French artist Benedetto Bufalino‘s way of dealing with summer heat. Removing the roof and windows for full-fledged sunbathing, the artist created a functional and creative Jacuzzi by modifying the car’s shell to fit all components necessary to enjoy daytime and nightime bathing.
Finding solutions to the problems they face, brilliant artists can change the course of our lives or at least out perspective. Everyone who sees this Seat Ibiza Sedan turned into a Jacuzzi will have at least a topic to talk about to friends, not to mention the urge to transform a car into a bathing opportunity.
A party on wheels, this Jacuzzi car is definitely something you’d want parked in the backyard.
And who says recessed living areas need to be indoors? Your outdoor space can benefit just as much from sunken seating, as evidenced by this elegant, stone-lined patio by Dean Herald-Rolling Stone Landscapes. And for one final dose of sunken living room eye candy, feast your eyes on this over-the-top living area by Chris Barrett Designs. The former estate of Johnny Carson features giant windows overlooking a cliff in Malibu, so it’s no wonder a safe and plush sunken sofa was added to ground the space.
Sunken living rooms were all the rage in the 60s and 70s, but they can still be just as comfy and stylish in the aughts. With so many of us opting for open plan spaces these days, creating a casual but defined “conversation pit” is a fun way to break up your living room into manageable zones. Read on for some of our favorite inspiration rooms featuring cozy sunken living areas that we’d love to nestle up in. The soaring ceilings of this bright and airy Texas home are further exaggerated by its recessed seating area. The raw look of the wooden ceilings and concrete floors are softened by strategically placed pops of color and plush pillows.
