Weekly Obsession: Infirmary Chic


Sometimes you just want the quiet comfort of a bay of sick beds, where you can recover from your outbreak of influenza like it’s 1909. You feel me?

Bright white interiors with sterile glass and metal — all vintage, in different sizes.


Maybe you don’t need 6 beds, but two of them make the perfect guest room. These white iron bed frames scream sterility.

And don’t forget the artwork and accessories!

couldn’t have said it better myself madison… creepy and cool. i think the centrifuge would make for a really interesting vase if your turn the vials upside down.


i’m pretty sure that is a vintage centrifuge! it spins around and separates blood and other liquids! it’s so cool in a creepy kind of way.


Haha! This made me smile. 🙂
