Have you ever wondered...
Sometimes I hear something strange on television, or read something new in a book and it triggers a whole new train of thought. I wander down the path of discovery--sometimes hitting a dead end and other times finding myself in a new world of wonder.
You can join me on this meandering path, if you like.
Today's step into something different started with a granddaughter's graduation. I hate giving money, but once my grandkids outgrow toys for gifts, I'm stumped. I found a lovely card with a photo of a butterfly, looked up dollar bill origami, and made a really cute butterfly from the bills. Add a note about spreading her wings and Voila! cash becomes a gift.
While searching for the perfect butterfly, I found something totally unexpected--the perfect find for digging deeper. ORIGAMI FURNITURE?
These images came from an amazing website: http://www.onarchitecturesite.com/2012/10/06/gorgeous-design-furniture-origami-modern/
Who'd have imagined that? Obviously, someone very clever.
Looking into a few more new paths down the internet trail, I discovered http://flavorwire.com/337444/the-very-best-of-foldable-functional-furniture-origami
I searched for a video that showed someone actually making origami furniture but, alas, I only found doll house furniture--but the search led to something else that I found interesting. I found a video that showed a very creative plan for a 400 sq foot apartment to become a 4 room comfortable living space.
