Honey Drip HD_4 Credenza

This is perfect because it’s so simple- and it’s eco-friendly, which makes it even better.

The 1 1/8-inch thick honey-toned tops have a recessed center thereby framing the shape of the table within itself and the edges have a dramatic bevel that adds further visual excitement to each piece.”

Panton Chair

Another design classic…

“Verner Panton’s cantilevered stacking chair was the first single-material and single-form chair to be made and has been produced by Vitra through three decades of development in plastics technology. This version consists of a single piece of strong, flexible polypropylene with integral color that will not fade over time. As striking as modern sculpture, this classic piece is appropriately durable and easy to clean in cafés or restaurants, and is comfortable enough to use as an occasional chair in an office or residence.”

Just the thing for a small garden…

“The asymmetry and counterbalance of this two-tiered outdoor counter makes it as visual a display as it is a practical stand for your gardening tools or refreshments. Fill the upper bowl with flowers or birdseed or use it as a base for an evening torch or candles. Cast is rust-protected metal, with your choice of grey or green lacquer finish, the gardener’s table is flexible, allowing you to disassemble and reassemble with ease.”

Theatric Sofa on sale

Modern sofas often tout minimalist appeal, but few can also claim the comfort of Ted Boerner’s Theatre Collection (2001). The Sofa, Loveseat and Armchair are all designed to accommodate the human body with studied proportions and simple geometry. The result is comfort that stems from its form, rather than excessive layers of stuffing and upholstery. The gentle angling of the backrest, full seat depth, and elevated armrests are eminently suited to living rooms or reception areas. Boerner’s signature artisan details are evident throughout these handcrafted pieces. A gleaming chromed steel base runs the entire depth of the design, and welted seams lend strength and definition to the upholstery. A Maharam textile, Precisely is a Reduced Environmental Impact fabric for its use of optimized, ecologically sound dyes that are free of heavy metals. Precisely is produced in an ISO 14001 certified facility. Made in U.S.A.

So, yes, yes, we’ve seen this before, but they’re on sale so I’m reposting. And maybe it’s the compulsive mover in me that finds these shelves so irresistible (they’re incredibly light). Is it that they arose out of humanitarian work? Or maybe that it’s almost 50% off?
