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.

Elko Coffee Table

Do you like a little retro feel in your furnishings? This Elko Coffee Table from Eastvold has a just a hint of 50’s mod in its angled leg base. The solid wood box has reinforced mitered joints, giving it a nice fluid feel, and the steel base is avialable in either green, black, red, white, silver or blue powder coating. Also, Eastvold offers custom sizes for an additional fee, so if you need a specific size, you’re in luck.

Face Boxes

If you need a place to store some of your little one’s toys and knickknacks, you could do a lot worse than Ferm Living’s Face Storage Boxes. Just take a look at those faces/handles. Cute. Plus, they’re stackable and small enough that kids can carry them around on their own. Maybe it’ll make cleaning up a little less of a chore (one can hope).

Pi.iii Pouffes

With a little craftiness and a sewing machine, it’s entirely possible that you could replicate these Pi.iii Pouffes at home. If you possess neither craftiness nor a sewing machine, you’ll be interested to know that these pouffes are designed and handmade by Glasgow-based upholsterer Eleanor Young (aka Fun Makes Good), and look to be entirely worth the overseas shipping (if you don’t reside in the UK). Several designs are available, and you may also purchase the pouffes through Fun Makes Good Shop on Etsy.

Last Dinner Table

Dining tables with extra leaves are nothing new, yet rarely do you find one that stores leaves in such a simple way as this table from Blu Dot. It has storage drawers at each end that allow quick access to the leaves when you have extra guests. It looks like the leaves fit onto the drawer as their support, thus minimizing any clasps or extra fussiness. (This looks to be much better than storing the leaves in the center of the table, especially as the inner edges of the table surface are often damaged when someone carelessly removes/stores the leaves.)

HM Select Eames Wire Base Low Table

Just when you thought you were well over any (more) Eames furniture, Herman Miller goes and tempts you with a limited edition of the Wire Base Low Table in red, blue, and yellow. These tables are in honor of the late Ray Eames (she would have been 100 this year) and are only available for a limited time, so, if you’re a fan, and the primary colors get your ‘must-have-this-immediately’ juices flowing, get a move on and add one to your cart.

Hearty Table

However you feel about the Novogratz duo, they do know how to pick pieces with character. This table for CB2 is based on their own French antique lab table, and, as you can see, has two drawers on each side that will hold cutlery, table linens, and all manner of family miscellany, as the case may be. The top is solid acacia wood with a bottom iron stretcher base.

Sfelt Table

Here’s a relatively simple idea executed well: a removable felt wrap protects the table’s surface from feet, drinks, laptops, etc. The handier among us might replicate this idea on our own coffee tables, but don’t discount the table under the smart felt idea just yet. It’s solid walnut with nicely curved TIG-welded steel legs, so it’ll stand the test of time while easily living up to its name.

Ping-Pong Conference Table

Brilliant! Now your conference table can also be a ping-pong table, thus saving space and encouraging ‘fun’ breaks for you and your team. The central panel either functions as the ping-pong net support or as a hide-away cable management, while drawers at either end house all the ping-pong (or meeting) supplies. How is this not a good idea?

Emu Ivy Pouf

What’s so special about an upside down wire basket? Well, for starters, it’s not an upside down wire basket: it’s a seat/ottoman/side table and light. The small grey bar on the top is a solar panel, and that solar panel fuels the five LED lights that illuminate the under table at night. A webbed nylon loop on the side makes moving it around your lawn (or patio) a little easier.

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.
