Furniture Free Friday couldn’t come sooner, coming off the back of Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2013 and bringing with it a a reprieve from the inundation of incredible furniture on show at the moment which has more than just a little excited!
With the Milano sensory overload continuing, we thought we’d bring to you a special piece for FFF.
This amazing isolated little wonder is located on (in, at times) the Serbian Drina River. The tiny wooden house has been perched upon an exposed rock in the middle of the River for more than 40 years. The house was brought to the limelight in a National Geographic photographic exhibition (pictured above), and has since garnered some well-deserved international attention.
The wonderful little creature was built by a group of teenage boys in 1968 for the purpose of capturing more sun throughout the day in order to sunbathe. Rather than utilizing a river bank or a raw rock, the house was constructed from reclaimed wooden boards found locally. In addition to the heavenly sun-bathing deck, the house incorporates just one small room. The magic of the story is that each time the river floods, the house is somewhat damaged and rebuilt by adoring locals and fans. A beautiful story for a Friday, no?
