t table by patricia urquiola for kartell

If I had known how inexpensive this table was, I would have posted it a long time ago. Patricia Urquiola is a genius and her designs are going at a premium these days, so I was thinking this table would have been a lot more expensive.

“designed by patricia urquiola for kartell, the t table was a giant hit in milan. manufactured in durable PMMA. the surface of the table is reminiscent of embroidery, resulting in a product that is functional and extremely decorative. 20″ diameter top. available in 3 heights: 11″, 14″, and 17″ and 6 colors, the t table can be used alone or in groupings. “

Vega Chaise, Sofa & Ottoman

“The Vega Collection (2005) provides a unique solution for environments used for socializing, lounging and sleeping. Created by designers Busk & Hertzog, Vega consists of a multifunctional Sofa, Chaise and Ottoman. When a larger Sofa is needed, the Chaise and Ottoman are ready to oblige; slide the pieces together to create the required size. Should a sectional be in order, three or more pieces can be quickly combined. For further flexibility, the arm of the sofa can be positioned on either side and changed on a whim. The Sofa and Chaise transform into comfortable sleepers by sliding the seats – which rest on metal bases with internal tracks – and folding down the backs. Use a flat sheet for best fit. Two down pillows are included with the Sofa and one with the Chaise. Made in Denmark.”

Chest of Drawers

This is genius. The “Chest of Drawers” consists of used drawers with a new maple compartment built to house each one, which is then cobbled together to form one conglomeration of storage. I love this because it’s a great way to utilize some older pieces that have been tossed asunder, and that it’s so visually impressive.

Thanks, B.A., for the link to matter matters!

Leggero Six Drawer Dresser

What I really like about this storage is that because it is low profile, it doesn’t give a weighty feel to a room, but it still really provides a lot of storage. If you had an armoir in the same space the room would feel smaller. But because this is so low, it really has a neutral effect.

Also, it would work really well in any room: bedroom, office, livingroom, etc.

Made in Italy.

mshelving: Media Console with Walnut doors

I just found a great company called “loadbearing” which makes all kinds of great tables, storage, etc. What’s cool about the company is that each piece they make can be customized by you, the consumer. They have a flash interface in which you can drag and drop different color styles or wood types and the price updates accordingly.

“At 81″ wide, 20″ high, and 16.8″ deep, this sturdy unit is the perfect size to support your TV, peripherals and stereo, and store your DVDs as well, hiding the embarrassing ones behind nice closed doors.”
