Ukrainian designer Julia Kononenko has developed the D&C House, a unique multi-functional piece of furniture that you can share with your (small or medium sized) beloved pet. The D&C House functions as a bedside table, but has a cozy spot for your furry friend.

With an aesthetic design, the multipurpose furniture made out entirely of wood, is also equipped with two drawers where you can store more stuff.

Ontario-based Canadian artist Ellen Jewett created this amazing series of surreal animal sculptures using an additive technique. She combined innumerable tiny components like plants, animals and objects to create this otherworldly sculptures.

Plants and animals have always been the surface on which humans have etched the foundations of culture, sustenance, and identity. For myself, natural forms are a continual source of fascination and deep aesthetic pleasure. At first glance my work explores the more modern prosaic concept of nature: a source of serene nostalgia balanced with the more visceral experience of ‘wildness’ as remarkably alien and indifferent.  Upon closer inspection of each ‘creature’ the viewer may discover a frieze on which themes as familiar as domestication and as abrasive as domination fall into sharp relief.   These qualities are not only present in the final work but are fleshed out in the process of building.
