  • Escape from Isis: Raqqa family who fled say 'paradise' city is now 'asphalt'

    A family of 12 Syrian refugees have escaped the heartland of Islamic State (Isis) terror in Raqqa to the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon to tell of their life under the oppressive regime and of a city devastated by air strikes. Ibrahim, 48, and his wife Turkiye, 45, told IBTimes UK they had escaped the de-facto IS (Daesh) capital in Syria 10 days ago (30 January) with their 10 children.

  • Better Than a Murphy Bed? Loft Beds for Grown-Ups (6 photos)

    Brooklyn-based woodworker Roberto Gil has been designing space-saving furniture for more than 20 years now. He’s perhaps best known for his stylish children’s beds, sold under the brand Casa Kids. Now he’s offering a loft bed under his line for grown-ups, Casa Collection, inspired by New York City’s first micro-apartment building. Called Urbano, the loft beds come in queen and king sizes. No pricing information is available on his website yet, but similar systems for kids have starting prices that range from about $3,400 to $5,900, depending on whether you opt for a ladder or stairs to access the sleep space. (The stairs are a separate unit of drawers, so they add about $1,000 to the cost.) We do wonder a bit about the durability of the loft beds for adults’ … erm, noctural activities. But presumably the children’s furniture is subjected to more than its fair share of vigor, too, so perhaps our concern is misplaced.
