FURNISHINGS

LAX wall mounting desk

I don’t need to point out the obvious benefits to wall mounting furniture, right? That they reduce visual space, making them perfect for small spaces? Okay, good.

Bovist Pouf

I hadn’t really thought much of these until I saw them in person- they really do have a ‘particular’ charm that lends some character to the room it’s in. Sure, it’s a bit more of a dent in your wallet than any ol’ ottoman, but it has a bit more personality, so that’s the trade off.

“Bovist is a decorative floor cushion, stool, and ottoman all in one. Its appealing shape and high degree of seating comfort are thanks to the large number of pleats on the side and a filling of small plastic balls. Large sections of embroidery give the cover, which consists of different colored fabrics, a particular charm and there is a knitted thread handle for moving Bovist to different places in the home.”

Designed by Hella Jongerius.

notes: measures 21.25″ diameter x 16″ height

aero sofa with arms

There is no good substitute for a sturdy sofa that will last you a lifetime. But, those sofa’s come with price tags that you may be paying for for almost a lifetime, so if you have a smallish budget but big design ideas, you may find that this convertible sofa may suit your needs.

It’s vinyl but you can request a swatch first before you make a big commitment.

Pix Side Table

Such a perfect little table- indoors or out.

“When designing his Pix Table (2002), Peter Schaffner had four specific goals: The table had to be multipurpose, timeless and space saving, as well as easy to assemble. The ingenious result is a patented table that has only three parts: a plate (or tabletop) and two x-shaped components that form the base. When assembled, the rim of the plate clicks into place over the stable, four-footed base…

The polyester powder coating ensures durable weather- and UV-resistance, and makes Pix suitable for indoor and outdoor use. In less than a minute, Pix can be set up or disassembled and stored flat.”

Available in Red, Green, or Anthracite

Rocking Bench

If you have a large outdoor space, several of these would be great for entertaining–or just one would be nice for some deep private night conversations.

Material: Coated multiplex

Size: 150 x 127 x 52 cm

PENTA Chair

The Penta chair is nicely structural as well as surprisingly form-fitting.

“The faceted form of the PENTA Chair consists of several metal panels covered and sewn together in high-quality black leather. Thin metal rods form the base of the chair providing stability and strength while retaining a slender profile. PENTA Chairs are equally at ease around the breakfast table or the conference table.”

Design René Barba

Lace Cut Storage Unit

With oak wood construction, invisible hinges, and 4 adjustable and removable shelves, this storage unit looks like a steal for the price. I’m really quite taken with it- the intricacy of the doors makes it look like it should cost at least a few more handfuls of hundred dollar bills.

39″w x 16.5″d x 65.5″h. ($125WG)

Timber Stools

Metalic finish stools are available in chocolate, vanilla, pewter and bronze.

“The stools have a soft curve for comfort and the table’s flat surface holds a drink. At 17” high and 21” diameter, they’re happiest in multiples (like a forest), so think of them for your next project, or wherever people like to have a little fun. Timber Stools are produced using a Gelcoat finish. Gelcoat is a material used to provide a high quality finish on the visible surface of a fiber-reinforced composite material. The fiberglass understructure, provides the structural integrity, is also colored, incase severe scratching should reveal the understructure. Surface scratches can easily be buffed out with polishing compound. Many boats are produced with Gelcoat over fiberglass, and the Corvette sports-car exterior body has been produced with this type of material since its inception.

All metallic finishes are actual metal powders suspended in the Gelcoat top layer. Metallic finishes will further oxidize overtime adding to their beauty.”

– Semi-transparent powder-coat finish on base
– Top is sapele veneer over engineered hardwood
– Base made in the USA
