Some great things I've found on the web this week

Wow , I have to say that I have found a lot of great things on the web today ! I want to share with you some of my fun design finds !

First one of my favorite , the hobbit house !

This is the site of the family who made it ( Click Here )
And this is the site of some of the photos ( Click Here )

I really love why they are doing this ( read more on their site)
I wouldn't mind living in one of these homes, very earthy and relaxed.
It reminds me as well of some of the tree houses that I've seen in the past.

Another great find was this great clock.

Il-Gu Cha's Trace of Time clock incorporates a whiteboard-esque erasable face and an eraser built into the hour hand - See a video of it in action here.

And last but not least
This would go great anywhere ! I'm already considering it for my kitchen ! A penny filed floor !

The entryway of The Standard Grill, in Manhattan, is tiled with thousands of US pennies, set in a black matrix. Looks like between one and two dollar's worth of pennies per square foot, which is comparable to ceramic tile, price-wise, but a whole lot more interesting IMHO
