Coconut Bed

I went to the new CB2 opening in Manhattan the other day and was pleased to get to see this close up. It’s well constructed and generously proportioned.

“No matter how many times you relocate, redecorate, change linens, change wall color…our white wonder is wonderful. Padded and upholstered head to toe (even the side rails) in pure white all-cotton canvas pre-treated with a protective stain-resistant finish… Benchmade in the USA with the same quality and attention to detail as our upholstered sofas. Kiln-dried hardwood and wood composite frame.”

Queen Bed. 66.5″Wx91.75″Dx40.5″H (5.5″H from side rail to floor).

Update: This item is no longer available. (10/30/09)

Cabana Sectional

This is the perfect sectional- very clean lines and an unscary price tag (considering all modern sectionals seem to be about $2000 more than a regular person can afford). Pillows are sold separately, so if you’re not so fond of stripes, don’t worry.

“Clean uni-height backs/arms angle deep to comfort. Overscale pieces work small spaces solo, or lofts in combination…Classic textured cotton in go-with-everything putty, double-needle stitched at the seams. Barely there T-legs in solid aluminum.”

• Kiln-dried hardwood frame benchmade in USA
• Sinuous wire spring suspension; foam cushioning
• 100% cotton fabric: putty
• Solid aluminum legs

Jan Hoekstra Cookware

Given the 2003 Red Dot Design award, Jan Hoekstra’s Cookware Series is designed with some really cool features:

“Saucepan twists and locks in place so liquids can be safely poured from notches on either side. In addition to giving you the convenience of one-handed straining, the interior of this Saucepan has a convenient measuring gauge so you can see how much you’ve added or removed. The gauge is in metric, attesting to the collection’s European roots. For the cook with too little storage space (and who doesn’t?), Hoekstra’s Cookware is made to nest together for compact storage. Made with a heat-resistant coated exterior in a choice of three colors and stainless steel interior, this Saucepan is suitable for all types of heat sources, from gas to induction cook tops.”

Ripples Bench

This bench takes advantage of five different layers of wood- an engaging design that will no doubt be at home among other classics in years to come.

“To create his Ripples Collection (2003), Toyo Ito was inspired by the appearance of concentric circles spreading across the surface of water that’s been disturbed by a thrown pebble…Created with five layers of different woods – walnut, mahogany, cherry, oak and ash – Ripples is created by pressing together 5mm-thick layers of each wood…Due to the natural variations in the grain of these woods, every Ripples Bench is unique.”

Alex Drawer Unit

So, normally we don’t post things from Ikea because it’s just too easy. They’ve got loads of inexpensive suitable/good design, and we figure people don’t need much help there. But, I should probably share that we recently redesigned our office, and the main change was from a simple long desk to an L-shaped one with this added drawer unit underneath. For a little more than $100, it works pretty well and looks pretty decent. Maybe it’s not for everyone, but if you’re on a budget it works just fine.

26 3/8 “w x 18 7/8 “d x 26 “h

**Also, Apartment Therapy recently invited us to share our workspace pics on their ‘Behind the Blog’ feature, so if you’re curious about where I post from, you can see it here. (And in response to one of the comments- yes, the poster is everywhere but I don’t care. I love it anyways. So there.)
