An alternative view

It was the strange but wonderful Pet Camper doghouse that first drew our attention to straight line design. Judson Beaumont created a mini RV for dogs. The aluminium Pet Camper even comes with it's own license plate and laminate flooring. On seeing the camper shown in the picture we decided to investigate the company behind the idea. We found some astonishing furniture works that had to be showcased on the blog.
It was like the furniture from Disneys Beauty and the Beast, but of course actually made. Their work includes a naughty table that looks to be taking a wee and an accordian shaped chest of drawers (shown in the picture). Most of their work is aimed at children and they also produce sets for shopping malls and other events.
