For those cold rainy nights in winter, when lighting the fireplace is the only possible way to keep the house warm, this extreme carriage seems to be the only solution!!
Not only does it give an extreme look to the living room but also helps me keep the trunks in the house and use them at anytime!! The trunks do not get wet and I do not need to run in the rain to bring the trunks in!! It is a clever way to keep me organised!!
Furthermore, once there are wheels, this makes it easy to use (even my daughter's 10 year boy can "drive" if necessary! The shape of a real carriage was nothing but random!! I was really inspired from those old romantic ages as seen on movies...
I just wanted to give the living room a sense of romance coming from the past.
Once it is made of timber and metal this carriage really fits the winter mood.
I should say that once it's made extreme, it could never be only a carriage to move and save the trunks!! As you can see there is a mechanism on the front which might look strange at first sight but if you look better you will see it is just a mechanism producing air to help the lighting process!! That mechanism was made using a propeller that when rotating produces and pushes the air through the rubber tube.
The wheels are metal rims coated with wood which was then covered with rubber material.
Main colours include silver and black (paints) while wooden surfaces were made of marri wood which was painted with clear and light walnut paints...
