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

Bahia Platform Bed

I wish I woke up in this room, too bad there isn’t a typo in the price! Though I do think it’s worth saving for! This bed has great visual weight for such an elegant profile.

lowseat by patricia urquiola

I just really love everything that patricia urquiola does. The Lowseat is a steel frame covered with injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam and the feet are made of stainless steel.

The best thing is that the covers are removable for cleaning (except for the leather, obviously).

Toto Cube Lamp

Not sure how long this will be on sale, so if you’re thinking it might work, you might want to snap it up while you can save some cash.

Whether placed bedside to provide a soft glow, used to dine on or used in a retail setting to display small objects, the Toto Cube Lamp (1996) functions dually as a lamp and a safe, washable table surface. The large-scale, unadorned geometry of the durable polypropylene diffuser lends function and visual impact to any setting, while being sturdy enough to act as an occasional stool as well. Made in France. Bulb not included: 60W incandescent.

Muro Media Storage

Here’s a great, relatively inexpensive way to mount a flat panel TV and all the accoutrements (tivo, dvd player) without having to hassle with all the wiring. You attach this storage unit to the wall and paint it or wallpaper over it to make it blend in with the rest of your decor.

The Muro Media Storage systems are suitable for televisions 32″ (min) to 50″ (max) wide, weighing up to 100 lbs. Each shelf has a weight capacity of 12 lbs. Wall-mounting hardware not included. Assembly required. Made in Italy.

Boris Dining Table

Round dining tables are ideal for so many reasons. They keep everyone on the same social playing field by eliminating the head and foot, and conversation is much easier. I particularly loved this table when I saw it, a nicely beveled edge helps define the top from the interesting base.

“The Boris Dining Table is both nostalgic and state-of-the-art. Its sentimental design pays homage to the definitive production standards and style of Charles and Ray Eames. But Boris’s unconventionally shaped legs give it a form that lies in a dimension somewhere between minimalistic and space-age, making it a great addition to any modern dining area, but a true centerpiece in any retro-inspired environment.”

Van Amburgh Stool by Sam Johnson

We posted this years ago (’06) and it needed some new shiny pictures to get your attention again. So, no, it’s not new, but it’s a good stool for a good price.

Named after the famous lion tamer Isaac van Amburgh, this stackable stool, or side table, is made from rotation-molded polypropylene.

Luisa Side Table

This is a delightful little side table who’s inspiration came from a visit to grandma’s house. The table is constructed of two layers of hard acrylic with a thin layer of laser cut felt between.

“The inspiration for this design emerged during lunch at the home of Enrico Fratesi’s grandmother, Luisa. For Fratesi, the fact his grandmother’s furniture was covered in plastic was no surprise, since this method of keeping furniture clean was a practice he’d seen all his life. But for his partner, Stine Gam-Pedersen, a native of Denmark, the plastic covers were odd, unexpected and exactly the inspiration needed for their next design.”

Luisa can be used in multiples to create a coffee table, in either three of the same color or a mix.
