Delta Stool

This stool seems to reference the prevalent wire base legs of the mid century, and indeed, its three large hairpin legs give structure to the modern day design. No hardware or adhesives are used, as the legs interlock for strength. Use as extra seating or as a side table anywhere you need an additional surface.

Hiya Rocker

Those of you with a mind like a steel trap will remember this kid’s rocker we posted back in ’09, but the rest of you can consider it for those little ones in your life- sons/daughters, nieces/nephews, etc. The Hiya Rocker has a small book bin in its back for storage and has a seat wide enough to accommodate two small kids. Painted with an eco-friendly non-toxic paint.

Stool 60, Anniversary Edition

If you get a little heart flutter anytime anyone mentions Alvar Aalto, you might just need to add a special anniversary edition of the Stool 60 to your furniture collection. The two pictured above and the variations below are colorful alternatives to the original birch version ($260). Info and links below.

Wave Cabinet

Whoa, do you see all the decorative hand-carving on this cabinet? Maybe you shy away from embellishment on your larger pieces of furniture, but I find myself drawn towards the details. Made by the company Manulution and designed by Salih Teskeredzic, each cabinet is made from solid European wood (walnut and cherry logs are bought directly from villagers in Bosnia) and is produced in two versions: one with a spindly stainless steel base and the other with wheels. Read more about the company’s history on Manulution’s website.

Smith Storage Cart

Yes, we posted this years ago (2008!), but this multipurpose unit is still pretty impressive. It serves as a detachable file cabinet, a stool, a rolling cart and, in multiples, even stackable shelves. It’s also recyclable once the plastic wheels are removed, though for the price, you’d be better off selling it to a fellow design aficionado.

This Stool Rocks

Would you like to back another Kickstarter campaign? How about a ready-to-assemble rocking stool? Three options allow for three different rocking motions, and, best of all, the stools can be made in a city close to you and shipped with minimal charge- instead of overseas. And, if you want to make the stool yourself (and have access to a CNC machine), you can download the CAD file for free.

Simple Shelf

Sure, a simple shelf sounds okay, but then you see the frame sort of floats away from the wall, and that means extra dimension. Not an extra dimension (don’t get too excited), just extra dimension, as in, a pinch of optical illusion when you walk by. The robots and bus make it look perfect for a kid’s room, but the collectors among us know an extra shelf or two means room to show off those few valuables/momentos that are worth keeping.

Bdoja Chair

Hmm, what’s this? A big ball of yarn? Not quite, though on first glance the assumption is understandable. It’s a chair hand-knitted with cotton cord by a group of women of Mexican-descent in Los Angeles, California. Amaya Gutierrez, the designer, works with this team to produce textiles inspired from her home town in Oaxaca, Mexico. Gutierrez aims for style and durability in all of her products with hopes it will limit further consumption in future years. A worthwhile goal, for sure.

Acapulco Black/Blue Lounge Chair

And so the intrigue continues over the pricing of the Acapulco Chair. Such mystery! That sounds a little like the title of a paragraph intended for a bilingual learning exercise, but nonetheless, just do a quick search and see the prices out there online. $400 – $500? No thank you, not when it’s $249 from this retailer. Craziness.

SwingLab Modular Swing

It’s about time that a modern version of the porch swing comes along, especially as winter is winding up and spring is on its way. This swing has a no-nonsense steel frame with cypress wood seats and two moveable backrests that allow multiple seating options (see SwingLab’s gallery for more pics). Pretty tempting if you’ve a porch that needs a novel seating solution, or, if you’re a bit more daring, hang it indoors for a different take on the chaise longue.

Drum Poufs

Poufs with trays! That’s just what we never knew we needed. Without the tray, it serves as an excellent spot for resting your feet and/or extra seating, and with the tray, it’s a functional side table or an impromptu in-front-of-the-tv dining surface. Keep in mind that the trays are sold separately and can be used anywhere as well- so don’t be afraid to pull it into the dining room if you need a big tray to shuttle things back and forth from the kitchen. Available in High or Wide.

Orson Desk

Whoa, cast iron legs means no messing around when it comes to materials. Matthew Hilton mixes rich hardwood with cast iron to create this quiet-yet-strong desk. On the drawers you’ll find solid wood and dovetail joinery, while there’s more to the tabletop than meets the eye- a cable management system is found under hinged doors (secret compartment!). The two storage trays and pencil holder are available separately.

Milking Stool by UM Project

It’s a little dreary outside, and a Monday at that, so a jolt of color is called for. Available in black, grey, white, teal, yellow, saffron and pink, this Milking Stool by UM Project could be extra seating or a side table, your call. It is intended to follow the proportions of a classic milking stool- lower legs and a narrow footprint- but if you prefer a sturdier option, it looks like they have an alternate version in the Holy Stool.

Herringbone Coffee Table

Wood (coffee table) + chevron parquet + simple iron base = no brainer. Parquetry seems to have been making a comeback with a few interiors featuring the old school look to its best advantage (a few bookmarked images on tumblr). All good news, of course, but if you can’t actually install those lovely patterned floors in your own space, you can certainly apply the technique to a coffee table top. This particular table is made of sustainable shesham wood and is left unfinished, so do be careful with your colorful beverages.
