Frame Seattle 01 Armless Lounge Chair

This looks like hard plastic (it’s what a grown up Lego chair would look like almost), yet it’s foam with a durable finish that won’t have you worrying about spills. Pretty smart.

“Seattle 01 employs rigid foam construction with a special lacquer finish making it resilient and carefree. The chromed steel armless frame adds a touch of elegance to an otherwise minimal design. Great for use at home or in contract applications.”

Available in 24 colors (with a lead time of 12 weeks).

29.5″ x 31.5″ x 22″ height; seat height 14.25″

Acrylic Flower Basket

This is perhaps the coolest flower basket I’ve seen (though I admit I haven’t seen that many).

“This long, shallow, flower basket provides an uncommonly sensible way to pick, carry, and display cut flowers. Your cut stems go immediately into water, extending their life considerably. Cut stems are easy to carry, both around the garden or the flower market.”

So clever, and definitely a piece that people will ask about…it would be interesting to see if others are inspired to find their own coffee tables and turn them into book racks.
