Prouvé Standard SP Chair

Fans of Prouvé are familiar with the high price tags associated with the name, and that’s exactly why everyone should sit up and pay attention to this version of the original Standard Chair. Notice the ‘SP’ in Prouvé Standard SP Chair? That, my dear, indicates ‘Siège en Plastique’ which means an ASA plastic seat and back. Don’t you turn your nose up at the word ‘plastic’, because it’s still an authentic Prouvé chair. A plastic seat and back would make more sense in high traffic areas where you needn’t worry about keeping the surface pristine- a few scrapes and such won’t be as noticeable, and I dare say it’ll be easier to clean. And, it brings the price down to a much friendlier place, which is oh-so-nice to see.

Rigby Media Console

What’s that price tag doing on such a modern media console? And it can be mounted directly on the wall without the base, thus bringing the price down to $999? Hmm, perhaps we need to consider where it could live in our own homes. I especially like the option of the wall mount version, as it could be hung at any height and do the job of an entryway console or dining area buffet.

Ichiro Iwasaki Cup Table

While this glass table might not be the best choice for a home with kids, it does have a certain appeal with its unexpected material. The colors are a nice change from the usual wood/black/white color options usually expected from the side table category, and, as an extra function, you can flip the table over and use it as a very large vase or as a storage vessel for pillows or blankets.

Hollister Table

This Hollister Table is an affordable console option, and, correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks pretty good for the price. An iron base supports a natural wood top, and that’s about it. No frills, no fuss, just a table to fit in wherever you need an extra surface. Would it fit in your entryway as a landing pad for keys and mail? Maybe. Behind a sofa for displaying a few favorite objects? Certainly.

Gordon Stool

Yes, you could go the super modern route when choosing your barstools, or you could pick a softer, quieter option like the Gordon Stool. It could easily work with traditional or modern pieces, thanks to its no-fuss, ladder-like metal frame. The wood seat and feet are available in a natural (oak) finish and a lighter whitewash finish.

Jens Bench

Often entryways are too cramped for any kind of seating option, but if you have the luxury of space, you might as well add one in so that your family and guests have a spot to set their bags or take off their shoes. The Jens Bench, designed by (you guessed it) Jens Risom for DWR, features a cushion that can be positioned to the right, left, or center to allow for a built-in side table.

Open the windows, get outside, you know the drill. Spring has sprung and now’s the time to enjoy the weather. This colorful Acapulco Lounge Chair is $229, and will prove to everyone that you’re not afraid of pink, aqua, and orange used in the same piece of furniture.

Windsor Chair by Chris Specce

Looking for a modern take on the traditional Windsor chair? Don’t rule out this version designed by Chris Specce, as it takes the quintessential form and eliminates any overly ornate details for a clean and modern look. It’s sturdy, so it’ll stand up to the bumps and scrapes of a high traffic dining room, and the bolder color options further set it apart from its stuffier predecessor. Available in bleached, natural, blue, red, and black stains.

Oak Naomi Side Table

As is often the case, simple and well made items can carry a heftier price tag, so don’t be too surprised that the Oak Naomi Side Table isn’t cheap. This solid oak wood side table incorporates a storage spot for magazines and newspapers and has classically minimalist vibes coming out of its metaphorical nose. It’s a no-brainer if it fits your budget.

Copenhague Desk

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are at it again with the Copenhague Desk, created for the new buildings at the University of Copenhagen. While originally designed for dorm rooms, classrooms, and common spaces, I think most of us will agree that the desk and chair look a heck of a lot nicer than anything we sat on at any stage of our schooling, and deserve to be somewhere better, maybe in our home office or spare room perhaps? The Copenhague Desk has trestle style legs with a backrest for leaning books, notepads, or tablets and is made from lacquered Oak.

Two Tops Series by Marcel Wanders

While not new, the Two Tops Table by Marcel Wanders recently found pride of place on my list of dining table options for a young family. The ‘Two Tops’ has an option to use laptops or coloring books at each end, thanks to a hinged end section that flips up to access the space. To hide the workspace, flip down the lid and you have a clean tabletop for dinnertime, no clearing necessary. It’s a clever solution to make the dining area tidy each evening and allows a kitchen or dining room to serve several functions.

Bertoia Side Chair

Bertoia chairs in a colorful mix certainly tempts one to go bold with outdoor furnishings this spring/summer, and, in case you need further convincing, here’s a reminder that today’s the last day of the Knoll® Outdoor Sale (15% off). Usually the Bertoia Side Chair with cushion is just around the $700 (plus shipping) price point, but with the sale, it’s just under the $600 mark. Still not cheap, but a chair plus $100 in your pocket wouldn’t hurt, would it?

Buoy Multifunctional Chair

Need a chair that keeps you moving? There’s the ErgoErgo, which we’ve posted before, and now there’s also the Buoy. The Buoy Multifuncitonal Chair has a rounded bottom that encourages you to move often- swivel, tilt, and turn- and also allows for proper posture wherever you’re working. A gas lift mechanism within the built-in handle enables height adjustment (excellent for workspaces that accommodate several people) and brighter base colors are available as well.

Idle vs. Skiff

Here’s an interesting match up in the world of modern/minimal sun loungers: one of these is $899 and the other is $299. If you’re a stickler for details, you’ll probably notice a few subtle design clues to help you assess which one has the higher/lower price tag, and, as usual, the call on which lounger you like best is completely up to your discerning/nondiscerning eye (and wallet).
