Things to make you go OOH #9

It's very hard to be a parent of young children and maintain a well kept tidy house. Almost impossible I reckon. Stylish living rooms across the country are constantly awash with multi-coloured plastic landfill. It's the ever present battle for the modern design conscious parent. But I think I have found the answer. The Qubis Haus, designed by Amy Whitworth is a coffee table, plus dolls house. Genius!


It has perpex and solid (could add your own wallpaper) sliding wall dividers, with matching furniture, and residents available. The table grooves also take an Ipad for the ultimate modern mini interior designer. Or even grown up ones.

Available from for £495.00

Do you own any cross purpose furniture? Let me see!
