Mod Cork Credenza

This provides plenty of inspiration to cover all available doors in cork. Not that you would, of course, want tacks stuck in all sorts of places, but it does liven up the possibilities for art in unexpected places. This credenza has worthy environmental credentials as well.

“Clean modern lines and a strong focus on environmentally friendly materials inform the Cork Credenza. The cork doors are made from the renewable bark of cork trees without harm to the tree itself. The cabinet utlizes rapidly renewable bamboo for the frame and FSC certified birch plywood for the interior (both materials are made with formaldehyde-free adhesives). The credenza is finished with low VOC topcoats for healthier indoor air quality.”

18.5″ deep x 59.5″ wide x 29.75″ high

Uffizi Bunk Bed

Holy cow. This is the craziest/coolest bunk bed. It’s also possibly the most expensive one as well, but that is beside the point since it would no doubt imbue young children with excellent design sense.

“Designed by the artisan duo Jenny Argie and Andrew Thornton, the Uffizi can be considered as an architectural work given the interesting spaces it provides. Kids will love the cantilevers, semi-enclosed lower bunk, and window like openings. You may select different finishes for different parts of the bed giving you the opportunity to suit your own style.”

Made from sustainable hard wood and birch ply. All finishes are 100% nontoxic.

Panton Junior

The Panton chair for kids is now available. 25% smaller than the original.

“Panton toyed with the idea of creating a child-size chair back in the 1960s, and drew up plans for its creation. Back then, production issues made the Panton Junior financially unfeasible, however the following decades brought new plastics technologies, and in 2006, Vitra introduced the Panton Junior. The chair is based on Panton’s original plans, complete with the smooth curves and fun shape of the larger Panton Chair. It’s crafted as a single piece of strong, flexible polypropylene with integral color that will not fade over time. Wonderfully durable and easy to clean, the Panton Junior is suitable for contract and residential use for children in pre-school and primary grades.”

Britt Floating Nightstand

Wall-mounting bamboo nightstand. Also can be used as an entry way table or hung in multiples.

“All bamboo used in modernlink furniture is farm harvested and sustainable. Comes in “Baked” or “Raw” finish. Raw is the color of bamboo unadorned, leaving the surface as it would be naturally. The baked finish is achieved by literally toasting raw bamboo at high temperatures browning the silica in the bamboo naturally.”

Yet another interesting option for outdoor furnishings…and, surprisingly, the stripes enhance rather than detract from the overall design (my opinion of course).

Bovist Pouf

I hadn’t really thought much of these until I saw them in person- they really do have a ‘particular’ charm that lends some character to the room it’s in. Sure, it’s a bit more of a dent in your wallet than any ol’ ottoman, but it has a bit more personality, so that’s the trade off.

“Bovist is a decorative floor cushion, stool, and ottoman all in one. Its appealing shape and high degree of seating comfort are thanks to the large number of pleats on the side and a filling of small plastic balls. Large sections of embroidery give the cover, which consists of different colored fabrics, a particular charm and there is a knitted thread handle for moving Bovist to different places in the home.”

Designed by Hella Jongerius.

LC3 Grand Modele Sofa & Chair

The LC2 collection, which is extremely recognizable, has been known for its compact footprint and cushioned comfort. I’ve always felt that the sofa and chair were rather small, and not really real ‘lounge’ material, so I was quite surprised to see the LC3 collection with its much larger proportions (it’s like the granddaddy of all modernist sofas). This would definitely be an investment, but man, it looks comfortable.

“The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 collections as “cushion baskets” which they designed in 1928 as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. With cushions held in place without being tethered to the frame, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style…
The differences among the groups are that the LC2 is more compactly scaled, and the LC3 has down-wrapped cushions that create a softer look and feel…
Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassina”s Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina in Italy under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation.”
