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″

Spotlight Floor Lamp

Not too long ago we posted the Photography Floor Lamp, and I’d say this one is comparable- perhaps this one has slightly more of a modern feel…

“15″ tripod base keeps things steady as chrome-plated lamp telescopes from 44″ to 61″ high. Especially effective in multiples. Uses one 75-watt bulb, not included. Sleek anodized aluminum shade. 98″-long cord. The on/off switch is located on the spotlight head.”

Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table Duo

Similar in style to the Railroad Tie Dining Table we posted a few days ago, this coffee table duo is superb with its combination of railroad tie wood and simple metal frame.

“Skilled woodworkers transform these reclaimed railroad ties-made from teak, pine, and ironwood-into a nesting coffee table with sturdy metal frames that have been given a waxed finish…Trim, versatile, and at home in any interior, the smaller one stores under the larger table when not in use. Or, use them individually to double your decor options.”

Striped collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec

Forgive me if I’m repeating myself, but I’ve yet to see anything from the Bouroullecs that I don’t like. This collection is incredibly simple and versatile enough that you might be able to justify buying the whole lot, citing a sound cause for investment.

“The Striped collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Magis is a complete line of furniture for the exterior or the interior: chairs, high and low armchairs, stools, long chairs. This superbly drawn chair has elegant lines that are beautiful to look at.”

A tree trunk covered in sheet metal is definitely an interesting application- and look- there’s even a handle if you’d like to carry it around room to room.

Crepax Cabinets

Holy. This alone would make a room. I mean that- you wouldn’t need anything else eye catching or stylish if you had this (which is good because you might not be able to afford anything else).

“This piece of furniture features the artwork of graphic artist Guido Crepax (1933-2003), who was hugely influential in the development of European comic art in the second half of the 20th century. His most famous storyline, featuring the character ‘Valentina’, was created in 1965.”
