FURNISHINGS

Leaning Wall Pocket

Put in a pocket! Why not hide your sundries away in a plywood and felt pouch? It looks to have a marsupial sort of security with its leaning angle and soft sides. Plus, you know it doesn’t hurt to have a one place to put all those mittens, maps, and hats, as that’s the only place you’ll have to look when you’re ready to venture outside of your home territory. Hang it in your entryway, office, closet, or wherever you need a place to put stuff.

Cobalt Blue Lacquer Desk

My goodness, take a look at the savings on this cobalt desk by John Reeves. With a regular price of $1895, the sale price of $1099 looks like one steal of a deal, especially considering that the bright blue color is thanks to lacquered panels (lacquer = work). Smooth, self closing runners and well considered proportions give this desk a refined feel, while the drawers and door give you access to appropriate storage space for a home office or dressing area.

Intimo Secretary Desk

Well, doesn’t this look promising? Compact desks are rather hard to find nowadays, so it’s refreshing to see one with a minimal design aesthetic that’s affordable. Plus, how lovely would it be just to close it all up once you’re done with your email/work? No tidying necessary, just close the hinge and you’ll not need to stare at your laptop and other miscellany. There’s a small storage shelf along the top and a hidden shelf along the bottom that will fit things like your laptop and phone.

Imo Folding Stool

I’ve seen this in person and it truly is a lovely little stool. Perfect for tight spots, it folds down the middle so that it can be stored easily on the wall and free up valuable floor space. It’s not the least expensive stool, of course, but the craftsmanship is entirely apparent.

Cork Family

Lest we forget, Jasper Morrison’s Cork Family is a smart choice for any living area. Each piece could be a side table or stool and is light enough to move around easily. Cork is also pretty tough, so you wouldn’t need to be too precious with keeping it away from kids. Available in 3 different styles (and yes, they’re priced individually).

Tessello Table Legs

Noah Lambert has added a great leg option to the marketplace: the Tessello. Sold as a set of 3 for $90 (or a set of 4 for $120) it’s a pretty affordable option, especially if you already have a table that just needs a makeover in the leg department. Media center, coffee table, nightstand, you name it, the legs are a no-brainer for an easy update, as you’d only need a drill/screwdriver and screws or bolts to attach them to your choice of table top. Each leg is cut from a sheet of .1875″ thick steel and bent with a custom jig to insure uniformity.

Pilot Stool

Quinze & Milan’s Pilot Stool is notable not only for its curved (and seemingly comfortable) seat, but also for its new method of fabrication. Polypropylene foam is utilized in a special manufacturing technique (see below video) to create a glossy-yet-matte surface. The oak legs thread onto the seat, making the stool easy to ship and assemble. Available in three different height variations: standard, kitchen, and bar.

Alden Sideboard

Sideboards are one of those investment pieces that stick with us no matter how much we move, so you might want to make sure you do your research before buying one just because it matches your dining table. Eastvold has an excellent option in the Alden Sideboard. The wood grain runs seamlessly across the door/drawer fronts, giving a unified, sleek look. Dovetailed drawers, soft-close slides, and hidden hinges add to its qualifications. And, hey, this doesn’t have to go in your dining room; it can easily live as a media center, as it accommodates media equipment wiring and has adjustable shelves.

ErgoErgo

You know how a Yoga/Fitness Ball is supposed to be better for you to sit on because it engages your core muscles? That’s all fine, but they’re a little unsightly for some interiors, not to mention huge when in a small office space. Therein lies the market for the ErgoErgo: it allows for the same sitting experience in a more acceptable stool design. The body can rock gently in any direction, and, as the ErgoErgo is filled with air, the height may be adjusted slightly to accommodate your preference.

Oak Nordic Bed

Sometimes you might settle for sub-par furniture. That’s acceptable in some cases, but certainly not for a piece of furniture you’re going to sleep on for a third of your lifetime. The Oak Nordic Bed by Ethnicraft is made from sustainably farmed solid oak that is kiln dried to assure stability (think twice about any piece that doesn’t use kiln dried wood) and includes hardwood support slats. There’s also quite a few similarly spare accompanying pieces (Oak Nordic Night Stand ($500), Oak Nordic Chest of Drawers ($2,500), Oak Nordic Dresser 2 Doors ($3,600)) if you need some extra storage.

Swedese Ivy Shelving

If you like everything to be lined up and precise, this might not be the shelving for you. The Ivy has the option to seemingly sway precariously to the side; it also stacks straight up, but that’s not as much fun. Make it as high or as low as you wish, as each shelf is sold as a unit.
