FURNISHINGS

OW150 Daybed

Let’s just pretend that we have space for a daybed, and budget enough to not blink an eye at the price tag of the OW150. Any guess as to who the designer is? Put your deerstalker hat on and connect the dots: OW150 = OW = Ole Wanscher. Ole Wanscher, whose furniture “exudes underplayed elegance and is it timeless, classic and thoroughly modern at one and the same time.

Magda Bookshelf

Interesting. This bookshelf is basically one steel tube with one central support, a little different from the usual two-bracket-one-flat-shelf idea, isn’t it? It’s stated that no tools are needed, but seeing as there screws in the picture, you might want to have a Phillips screwdriver handy.

Walnut Wire Side Table

This price is right for this side table, especially considering the style and materials. The warm walnut top balances out the cool copper wire base, and the size is just about perfect for a table lamp and a few odds and ends. The top is removable should you want to store something in the base, though who knows what that might look like. Might be better to leave it as is.

Aluminum Eiffel Stool

First off, the $150 price is for the kid-sized version, but, that said, $225 isn’t too bad of a price for an aluminium (or, as us Americans would say, aluminum) stacking stool. The Eiffel stool can easily live indoors or out, and do check out the image below of the stools stacked 5 high (space saving!), and see if that doesn’t impress you the tiniest bit more.

Knitted Yoga Ball

How about a little crazy thrown into your modern mix? There’s a theory floating around that adding a little strangeness or ‘ugly’ to an interior makes it more interesting. Agree or disagree? Either way, this Knitted Yoga Ball is not a typical choice. At its core is a functional yoga ball, so you could use it for your stretch routines or as an extra seating option or footrest. Created by Texas artist Magda Sayeg (Knitta) and Australian design comapny Page Thirty Three, each knitted sleeve is made from upcycled rugs and throws.

milk stools by alissia melka-teichroew

You might know Alissia Melka-Teichroew for her acrylic rings or the Inside Out glassware from a while ago, and now you can add this off-kilter stool to her list of successes. Would you have guessed she was inspired by crooked slats in a picket fence? By combining the asymmetry of the fence with the irregularity of the old-fashioned one-legged milk stool, she arrived at this sturdy and expressive design.

Canteen Table Leg Set

Oh, what a predicament you’re in when you only need table legs. We’ve posted a few trestle options, but this Canteen set might just be the best alternative to the straight forward (and somewhat boring) IKEA legs. No need for a bracing system, as the leg fixes directly to the tabletop. Choose from 7 available colors. Each box includes 4 legs.

The Dorm Shelf

Extreme minimalists: ignore this post. Everyone else: if you simply must display your trinkets and tchotchkes, consider the Dorm shelf by Ferm Living. It’s a more modern option than anything you’ll find on eBay, and will set off your collectibles without offending anyone’s eyes.

Stockholm Sideboard

Few things manage to hit just the right note of elegant simplicity, but the Stockholm Sideboard by Mario Ruiz for Punt is perfectly pitched. Quality materials, fine detailing, and the absence of drawer pulls creates a minimal luxe look, while the elevated sides add an extra shelving space that will keep books and artifacts* safely placed. Something like this is surely customizable, yes? Of course. Choose between pale rose or gold for the top shelf edging and white, black, stone, or dark brown for the slim legs. See the various veneer options below.

BrickBox

This might look vaguely IKEA-ish, but rest assured its origins are in Spain rather than Sweden. Modular boxes are stacked to create a versatile and very portable storage solution. The boxes are deep enough for vinyl records or cable boxes and may be disassembled for shipment. Do make note that you’ll need both the large and small modules to create a finished edge as shown above.

Score Storage

This Score Storage by Debra Folz integrates a textile to soften up the hard edges of case goods. The interchangeable 100% wool panels are magnetically attached to the outside, so they’re easy to switch out when you want a color change. Combine several colors if you’re feeling particularly brave or stick to a nice monochrome palette; either way, it will be nice to mix things up with a quick color change.

Symbol Record Storage Cabinet

If you’ve refused to surrender your record collection (or CD collection, for that matter), you’ll be overjoyed to see this series from Symbol Audio. The LPC series is made specifically for housing vinyls, and each “hopper” drawer swivels open to show up to 160 records. You can choose between a few sizes depending on your collection (and budget), with or without drawers sized for holding CDs. Each piece is bench-made to order in West Virginia, so you’ll have to wait around 4-6 weeks, but that’s nothing compared to not having the perfect storage piece.

Krone Hanssen Wood Stubbe Poufs

Why would you want big chunks of wood in your home? Who knows, maybe you’re a bit crazy. However, soft poufs covered with a a photo wood stump print are completely understandable, and, in some cases, recommended. Use these poufs as an ottoman, stool, or side table (they’re supposedly pretty sturdy).
