We live on upper floor, which is amazing because we have a high ceiling BUT… (oh f****** but) we have to deal with some tricky corners in our living room!
I am an architect, what means: a tricky corner is nothing but an opportunity to have a great idea and to create a unique space (ohhh, that sounds so pretentious… but it is not!).

Total cost: CHF 800,00.
It took us two weekends to assemble everything… Fair enough!
