I thought it was pretty inovativeand impressive of her, especially since she used recycled materials.

I wonder if she's a sculptor or a fabric artist.  She shows off her couch cushions which are where her fabric storage is handy but hidden/functional.  I sew, and I know how it is to live in a small space but want to have your fabric collection near at hand.  So she designed her fabric storage into her couch!  That is SO COOL! 

We were just given similar really thick foam insulation, but for a whole room (it was a walk in fridge).  No idea what we'll use it for yet, but I like her use of it.
