The brainchild of two Spanish graphic designers and travelers, Behomm offers an invite-only, curated home swap for the design community. The site lets designers and artists see and stay in over 1,000 inspiration spaces across the globe. Here, members share details about their spaces.
Behomm space in Vienna

Architects in Vienna, Austria 

"We used plywood as shelving and for room partitions. On the balcony, we used double-stick mats usually used for fences. In the foreground, you can see a table designed by us. It's made of a very thin and light aluminum material also used for facades. We are architects, and we designed and built our home using an ecological approach. We were the first in Vienna to use straw bales as insulation material for our house."

Behomm space in Calgary

Designer and Photographer in Calgary, Alberta, Canada

"My small home includes this dining area. I chose a traditional bronze chandelier for the space to contrast with my modern look. It's a fixture I can live with for a very long time. The dining table is custom. I designed and had a family member weld the workbench-style base and had a marble remnant cut to fit for the table top. It's a heavy piece and the weight of it brings attention to my ash floors. The small credenza was custom made for this space by Speke Klein in Canada (to hold shoes, actually). My dining chairs are oak and leather from De La Espada and the swivel fibre glass bar stools from Modernica. I've added a tiny punctuation of a framed film photograph of my husband between the windows for fun."

Brooklyn loft for Behomm

Designer in Brooklyn, New York

"The pieces in the space are a combination of industrial reclaimed finds and bespoke, often both in the same item. The cabinets were a vintage medical find, powder-coated and set up on welded stilts. The mirror was commissioned from Made In Chinatown. Ceiling color and texture came through lots of trial and error in order to avoid the heavily toxic and arduous process normally involved in staining concrete. The mezzanine sign which marks the space was acquired through a long chain of inside jokes from a friend—I'm still unsure exactly of its origins, possibly the bygone New York Subway signage system."

Dining table in Berlin

Design Publishing Editor in Berlin, Germany

"Quite a few of our things come from places like Bolia, BoConcept and Hay, combined with flea market finds and DIY pieces. I built that table together with my dad. I had been looking for a table that would function both as a desk and a dining table for quite some time, but what I found wasn't either quite right or just too expensive. So I asked my dad, who's very handy, if he'd come to Berlin for a weekend and help me build my own table. It's exactly how I wanted it. The chairs came from a vintage store around the corner. I don't know if it's true, but the owner told me they were once used in a church in Denmark, and I varnished them to match the table top."

Behomm space in Bali

Fashion Designers in Bali, Indonesia

"All textiles, prints, murals and furniture was designed by us to reflect our own personal style that makes our business. Everything you see was designed by us; the light fittings, the furniture and the textiles!"

Behomm Space in Australia

TV Executive in Sydney, Australia

"There’s a dining setting by Australian mid-century modern designer Grant Featherston, and two round Kone chairs by another mid-century Aussie, Roger McLay. The Kone chair is a beautifully simple design—a single piece of plywood bent into a cone shape and fixed to four black steel rod legs. They were made possible by advances in innovations in glue and wood bending techniques first used in fighter aircraft in World War II and put to great use by people like the Eames, Robin Day and McLay in the post-war period."
