FURNISHINGS

Meet Bench

Look at this cute little guy. He’s got slender steel tubes for legs and a rounded rectangular seat perfect for perching on while you remove your shoes. Or perhaps you’ll share the seat with someone else- there’s just enough room for two. Norm Architects liked the size of traditional piano benches, which are just wide enough for a pair of people. The Meet comes with a removable non-slip felt cover if you’d like just a little extra padding. Add one to your entryway, hallway, or bedroom.

Welf Wall Shelf

Here’s another steel wall shelf to consider, and there’s quite a few appealing colors, so, fair warning. Blush, Grey Green, Marine Blue, Putty, a deep Red, and the requisite black and white… just how will you decide? You have the choice of small (24″w) or large (40″), and there’s an added felt pad to make a softer landing spot for keys, phones, and other miscellany.

Eric Trine + Dusen Dusen Outdoor Collection

Whaat? Eric Trine and Ellen Van Dusen paired up to make an outdoor collection and no one told me about it!? Well, at least we’re finding out just in time. The light jade metal with cushions in Dusen’s squiggly Dash print may be just what your patio needs to freshen up for the summer. Maybe add a lounge chair or sofa to your outdoor area for extra seating? While you’re at it, add a coffee or side table to make it a set.

Roger Stool by Sika-Design

This handmade stool is made from suar wood, which, if you’re not familiar, is a fast growing (and non-endangered) tropical hardwood. It has an interlocking grain that reduces the likelihood of cracking with temperature changes, and that’s very good news for those of us that hope our furniture lasts longer than our pithy life spans. And did you see the price? Very, very affordable which is oh-so-nice to see. Use it as a low table in the living room or take it outside, as it can go back and forth to suit your place-to-put-my-drink needs.

Switch Stool and Table

What’s better, a side table or a stool? That’s a tough one, so how about both? Bend Goods offers up the Switch Stool and Table. Add a glass top to the base and it’s a table. Add a stool pad (in vegan leather) and it’s a seat. The stool pad flips over for a more compact side table option too. Pretty handy to have around, don’t you think?

LAX Milking Stool

Add this stool to the list, as it has a delightfully simple design with a T-shaped cross brace to make sure the legs stay put. What height do you need? There’s the counter seat height (24″h, shown), bar height (30″h), standard height (16″h, shown below), and a wider side table version (16″ h x 24″ dia.). Take your pick.

Palladio Tables

If you’re not afraid of color, you may want to add the Palladio Table collection to your list. Thanks to a sturdy leg joint, many sizes and proportions are possible. There’s 20 color options for the top and 18 color options for the legs- that’s enough to make my head spin with crazy color pairings.

Sculptura Collection

Maybe you didn’t know that the Sculptura Collection was first conceived in 1956, or, if you did, maybe you didn’t know that it’s back in production, and available from DWR. Molded iron wire mesh creates a comfortable, sculptured seat suitable for indoors and out. Like many other mid century designs, it’s a classic choice that won’t ever go out of style, so you’re safe to get a few pieces knowing they’ll continue to stand up to the test of time. Available in white, black, or red, with or without a seat cushion.

Common Leather Stool

There’s about a hundred places you could put this stool in your home. Maybe one (or two) in the living room as an extra perch or footstool, maybe one in the closet or bedroom for putting on/taking off shoes, or in a hallway or entryway as a focal point or resting spot… you get the idea. If you have any trouble getting it to fit, just let me know and I’ll take it off your hands, no trouble at all. And have you seen the all black colorway? Hot damn, it looks good.

Metal Shelf

Do you need a simple, modern shelf? This mid century inspired version is made of metal, so it’ll last longer than you (probably). Installation is straightforward (see the two holes at the top back?), so just make sure your nails or screws are level and you’re good to go. Available in black, white/grey, red, or blue.

Tipi Table

This little table does double duty; the integrated handle lets you move it easily from room to room while the wood or marble top lifts off the recycled steel base for use as a tray. Handy, right? There’s both a high and low height, so you can pair them together for a varied arrangement when it suits. Choose between oak, walnut, or Carrara marble for the top.

Blackened Steel Bar Cart

Do you need a new bar cart? One that holds a little more liquor perhaps? You could do a hell of a lot worse than this Blackened Steel Bar Cart by Brad Sherman. It’s oversized and suitably sophisticated; there’s nothing overly ornate or precious about it, so it’ll withstand a fair bit of use and still look good. Hitting just under 30″ in height, it can float behind the sofa or stand against a wall.

Udon Chair by Staffan Holm

An updated version of the classic bistro chair might just be what your dining room or office needs. Nothing too fancy, of course, but, hey, we all like a room to look a little polished once in a while, you know? Look close and you’ll notice a few clever joints to keep the lines minimal. The color options are easy on the eyes as well.
