Maybe you should come live with us, along with two of your siblings, at our kitchen counter. Yes? Agreed.

Take a look at the three skewed, off-kilter legs of this table. They’re just a bit off-center, which gives a playful feel to the heavy, solid form. The Stool + Side Table is just the right size to fit in alongside a sofa or as seating for a small desk.

How are you feeling about the start of 2018? Did you make any resolutions? Maybe something along the lines of being more organized, or never losing your phone and/or keys? This little Walter wall element is just the sort of thing that you (or a friend) need to keep a few important things at hand. Small hooks provide the perfect spot to hang keys and cables, while the shelf is just big enough for your phone, wallet, or other small personal items.

Sure, it’s a shelf, what of it? Well, this powder-coated steel shelf has a ridge down the middle to keep photos and art propped up as well as a lip on the front. That allows you to display all sorts of things without worrying about little (or big) things falling off, which makes it suitable for anywhere you need an extra display or storage space.

Keep important papers and correspondence front and center with the Folded Shelves from Muuto. With a slanted divider and deep ledge, each steel shelf has plenty of room for all sorts of things (maybe even books?) while the two hooks give you some hanging space. Place one near your desk, in a hallway or kitchen, or maybe even near your bed to keep yourself organized. Available in three different sizes and four different colors.

Warm, solid wood wrapped in cool, smooth steel sounds like a match made in heaven. Add storage to the mix and you’ve got us hooked. The Clad 3 Door Credenza is right at the 2 grand price point (walnut is just over; hickory, just under), which is pretty reasonable considering the sturdy and sleek materials. Integrated groove pulls keeps surfaces clean while soft closure mechanisms keeps things quiet. There’s a smaller 2 Door Credenza if you’re short on space. And, even better, the Clad Collection is from Blu Dot, which is has a 20% off sale now through October 29.

Do I really need to explain how this bench is worth every cent of its price tag? Seating + Books = (!). It has an angled shelf for books (why, yes, I am nerding out a little bit over that detail). That will give you a perfect place to keep your favorites, tucked away under a handy seating surface.

How’s this for a stackable stool/side table? It’s got a pretty friendly price and features an oval-shaped seat on a sturdy powder-coated metal frame. That and the colors will have you considering just how many you may want to add to your own abode.

Wait, now, are we seeing a folding chair that looks cool? That might seem like the wrong word, but look, it’s true. Clean lines and a minimal treatment makes this folding chair just right for modernists. Too bad that it’ll take several more hundred-dollar bills to get one of these rather than the standard metal chairs, but we’re used to that sort of pricing by now (right?).

This sofa looks like a pretty perfect place for a long nap, don’t you think? Sort of like sweatpants for your living room, it’ll keep you comfortable while signaling you give approximately zero forks what other people think of you. Just kidding, this sofa isn’t nearly that bad… but it does look that comfortable.

Maybe you can go chop down a tree, take off all the bark, then paint it and add a sturdy woven cotton handle, but some of us have other things to do. Plus, when these stools are less than $100 and made from sustainably harvested oak, it’s awfully hard to resist such affordable seats.

Take a look at the legs of this table; see how they are on the sides rather than the corners? This cantilevered effect appears to give you a little more available surface area, or at least a more interesting appearance. There’s a matching Coffee Table too, but it deserves its own post next week.
