FURNISHINGS

Sande Cubes

Now, don’t get too excited- these are the smaller cubes, not the larger side-table size. They’d be pretty useful for organizing office gear on a desk surface though…

“Sande is a new line of avant garde designs that explore the relationship between nature-inspired forms, tactility and function. The striated look of these pieces is achieved by repeat laminations of a new eco-friendly plywood from Ecuador – sande.”

6.75″W x 6.75″H x 6.75″D

Set of 3.

easy storage

This is a pretty cool shelving system. Once the back panel has been installed, the shelves essentially “hook” in and can be removed easily for transport. Why would you need to transport, you may ask? I can see this being a pretty great system for an inbox. It’s up and out of the way when you’re not using it, and when it’s time to tackle it (say, once a week) then you just pop it out and start working.

Also, can be used to provide support for electronic devices as cables are concealed inside the back panel.

Back panel is available in either white or aluminum with your choice of three shelving colors.

Stellar Bookcase

A lot of style for a small price…

“The Stellar table collection offers a classic, modern look at a terrific price. Constructed from solid birch with an ash veneer, this bookcase comes KD (that’s furniture talk for knocked down…unassembled), so it is easy for you to transport home in a box.”

Skyway Lucite Table

Small tables are excellent for convenience, as you can move them around easily to act as a drink or side table. This one is a particularly nice specimen of the lucite variety.

Constructed of 1 piece of 3/4″ lucite.

Link Shelving Element(s)

This is so very different than the average shelving system. If you’re into having unique storage to store your unique items on, this one would certainly provoke conversations.

“This simple shape of rotational moulded polypropylene can be joined and stacked to create a shelving system. Available in four colors of light gray, olive medium gray, white/ivory, and light green.”

Designer: Martijn Prins

each element measures 15.75″ x 19.5″ deep x 23.5″ height

Shelter Sofa

I’ve always loved shelter arm sofas, they are so comforting and comfortable, and at this price, I don’t think you could go wrong.

“High arm, high back, high drama. New-century cocoon cozies up like a room in a room. Referencing prairie and ranch with a spare horizontal point of view. Chocolate hopsack weave is a neutral slate brown ready to take on any pillow, any wall color. Solid maple legs taper 50s style.”

Archimede Laptop Caddy

I could really use one of these. The best thing about a laptop is the portability but just using it in your lap (I’ve found) is not exactly the best thing for your posture. So why not couple your laptop with a portable desk as well? This desk has a gas piston that adjusts the caddy’s height and a mouse tray that positions left or right.

loop chair

This is the cheapest I’ve seen the Loop Chair–usually it’s around $900.

Made for outdoors use but could also be used indoors in the right space.

Tatami Duvet Cover (w/pillowcases)

Bedding seems particularly hard to decide upon these days, especially for those of us that prefer something that’s simple without being completely devoid of any design or pattern…this particular set fits within that particular category quite well, and provides a nice contrast to any throw pillow(s) you might choose.

100% Cotton percale – Plastic snap closure. 220 Thread Count.

2 pillow cases included.

Catifa 207 Chair

This chair has a similar silhouette to the Cox Chair, yet has a significantly lower price tag (due to the materials, of course, but it’s nice to have the shape without dropping a whole load of money). Lots of color options seem to available as well…

Terrazzo Square Table and Stools

I know it’s not exactly outdoor weather for most people, but who says you can’t get ready early? This set would look equally good inside as well…

“This black terrazzo table is a classic addition to any patio or deck. Measuring 32″ square, you can easily match it to Napa’s square terrazzo stools (sold separately) or with your choice of teak or metal outdoor chair. Constructed from concrete with terrazzo accents, these innovative items may be left outside in Virginia winters (unlike terracotta, which is guaranteed to crack). Whether you prefer the look outdoors or in, this table is an undeniable classic.”

Table (32w x 32d x 30h), $559.00

Stool (12.5w x 12.5d x 18h), $125.00
