Well, if you are very short on space, this little cabinet will give you the finished look without the legs. It appears to be a complete side table, yet the only three-dimensional part is an open drawer that’s just big enough for a few books. The two-dimensional wall decal creates the illusion.
Designed by Lisbon-based designer Fernando Brízio for Droog.

While this is perhaps the most flattering angle, I do have to say this bed looks incredibly appropriate for a modern-yet-affordable sleeping surface. The frame is made from sustainable solid mango wood and features an open headboard where you can put all manner of bedtime accessories (books, alarm clocks, etc.).

The designs of Environment Furniture revolve around around the central principal of resurrecting reclaimed woods and textiles into impeccably constructed, clean-lined furniture. While the showroom feels unfussy, the designs themselves are perfectly crafted. The Curve Dresser, made from reclaimed Peroba wood with bronze hand pulls. The pieces are pricy, but they’re so well constructed and designed that they’ll likely never need to replaced.

For you Canadian folks, here’s a nice white dresser with a mid century vibe. Crafted of matte-lacquered MDF, it has three self-close drawers and tapered legs. If you’re not in Canada, you might have to do some serious cajoling to get it shipped to your home… good luck if that’s your plan.

If you’re lucky enough to not bat an eyelid at the price of this Nap Sleeping Bag, good for you. For the rest of us, we’ll take note of the wonderful idea of having a sleeping bag specifically for taking naps or picnicking on, especially one with stripes and plaids such as this one, and file it away for a future DIY project.

Looks like a nice canopy bed for a bedroom, right? Well, get this, it can also double as an outdoor cabana near the poolside. Not that you would move it back and forth or anything, but it’s nice to know it would stand up to the elements with no problem. And what does PCH stand for? The Pacific Coast Highway in California, of course.
Designed by Bernard Brucha for MASH Studios
Made from plantation grown, grade-A teak and coated with a natural, nontoxic oil finish.

Modular systems can offer much needed versatility to your home, and this system does so with a distinct mid century flair. A half drawer unit plus half seat (not shown) would be ultra handy in a entryway, and the look of the two-2 drawer units on a double base (shown at top) could look very nice as a bedroom dresser or console. The only drawback is it can get a bit pricey when you start adding up the costs.
White or Ebony.
Single base (26″ wide x 17″ deep x 9″ high): $195.00
Double base (59″ wide x 17″ deep x 9″ high): $395.00
2 Drawer Unit (32.5″ wide x 17″ deep x 15.5″ high): $800.00
Tray unit: $150.00
Tray Seat Cushion: $195.00

Efficient minimalism, indeed. Made entirely of multi-ply bent laminated wood, this bed is just about as structurally sound as you can get with this sort of craftsmanship (while keeping the design aesthetic, of course). The smooth curves do echo Alpine sports, but I’d say it’s more reminiscent of a mid century design classic than ski equipment.
The frame is the first to be built almost entirely of bentwood, giving it both fluidity and strength. The bed was inspired by alpine sports like skiing and toboganning, where strength, lightness and a strong graceful structure are crucial. As in the aesthetic of Alpine sports, the Alpine Series bed embodies efficient minimalism and craftsmanship. It’s one and an eighth inch bentwood structure is engineered to last for generations. –modernica.net

Which pillow would you rather sleep on?

The wondrous and wonderful Miranda July, a stunning new voice in, well, film, art, performance, literature…While she is finding it difficult or rather unnecessary to confine herself to a single genre, her work is instantly recognizable by an unmistakable charm and humor that can inject the everyday with a surprising magic.

How about this ‘urban’ bedding from CB2? Like it or not? I’m leaning towards ‘like’.
Overscaled cityscape draws a fine line, radiating a modern urban universe. Original carbon drawing printed on super white, super soft 300-thread-count all-cotton percale. Duvet with hidden button closures reverses to solid white. Shams meet in a graphic semi-sphere on one side, reverse to solid white on the other; clean envelope closure.
Full/Queen Duvet Cover, $79.95
King Duvet Cover, $89.95
Set of two standard shams, $19.95

I’ve posted a few things from Iannone Design, but for some reason I missed posting this particular dresser. I like the more delicate hummingbird motif compared to some of their other designs (maybe because it’s predominantly white with smaller touches of the kirei board).
Materials: Kirei, gloss white laminate, FSC maple plywood, stainless steel
Dimensions: W 70″ X D 20.25″ X H 30″
$3,995.00, from Plushpod
