Walt Disney was inspired by many people and many things throughout his life, many of which is replicated in all that he did. He is known to have modeled Disneyland after Tivoli, an amusement park and pleasure Garden in Copenhagen built in 1843.

Home to a concert hall, amusement rides, performance art and nighttime fireworks, this wonderland is the perfect destination if you ever make it to Scandinavia.

Very cool way to re-design a wooden table.  This  combination is the best of two worlds — eat a meal at a picnic table, then spin around to relax on a reclined bench.

This New York City park, the High Line, is made from the remnants of the abandoned stretch of an old railway.  Known for the theme of "\the balance between people and plants," this space meshes a receding railway with a developed green space.  Benches, landscaping and walkways merge as one.
