FURNISHINGS

The Sidebar by urbancase

Do you have an extra 3 grand lying around? If so, you could spend it on this handcrafted bar cabinet by urbancase. It has a sliding panel on the front that reveals compartments inside (perfect for glassware) plus a drop front drawer and a pull-out drawer for tools and such. Mostly it’s a great looking cabinet that doesn’t necessarily look like a liquor cabinet… and, there’s got to be some sort of pleasure in opening it up for the big reveal when you have guests.

Sandberg Chair

Hmm, this chair from Room & Board has a quiet sort of beauty, doesn’t it? It has just enough mid century modern flavor to keep it from being boring, yet it’s not something that screams ‘look at me, look at me’ when you first enter the room. It would be an excellent seating choice for a low key area. You have a choice between solid maple, solid cherry, solid walnut or solid maple with ebony stain (do you get that it’s made from solid wood?).

Beanbag Pit Stop

By all means, if you’re able to make this yourself please do so. The price tag is a bit hard to swallow, I know, especially since it’s a beanbag in the shape of a tire and intended for kids. However, it is knitted wool, sewn to a polyester fleece, and has appropriate detailing that puts it well above, say, something you’d find on sale in the kid’s section at your local furniture store. And, of course, Bertjan Pot is the designer, so if you’re an admirer (I am) you’ll appreciate the concept, if not the price point.

Rig Barstool

Sustainable Mango wood plus a pop of hi-gloss red, and it’s adjustable (~ 4″) too… you can’t really go wrong with this barstool. At $149, it’s firmly in the affordable category, which is always nice to see, especially if you’re needing a trio.

Caliper Coffee Table

Here’s a coffee table that puts an end to clutter: two hidden drawers reveal storage at each end, making a secret spot to stash away tv remotes, games, and reading materials. Not a bad price either. (There’s some assembly required, but I’m guessing it’s just attaching the legs.)

Perch Bunk Bed

I don’t know a lot about kids’ furniture, but I do know if a piece costs over the $1000 mark it better look damn good. Luckily, this bunk bed looks better than most adult beds, and will stand the test of time thanks in part to a sturdy Baltic birch plywood and FSC certified eco-MDF frame. As with most bunks, it separates into two beds (a loft bed and a standalone twin) should your little ones want a different configuration.

Green Chair by Javier Mariscal

How nice is the recent trend of furniture being made of recycled materials, thereby making the piece recyclable when it’s at the end of its life cycle? Very nice, indeed, and it’s certainly a trend to keep. This chair by Javier Mariscal is made from recycled polypropylene with a stacking metal base or a non-stacking wooden base. While I’ve only found one UK retailer so far, I’m sure there’ll be some retailers stateside that will pick it up (fingers crossed). Produced by Mobles 114.

The Green chair meets the Management System of Ecodesign UNE 150301.

Mesh Series Tables and Lamps by Horgan Becket

I just came across this fantastic looking series tables and lamps at Design Milk. The Mesh Series by Horgan Becket is a collection of tables and lamps inspired by steel wire forms commonly seen in fencing and other industrial applications. While the industrial look is certainly in these days, it takes a special touch and consideration not just go with, “add steel here, big welds over there, finish with worn reclaimed wood”, and actually design something unique without straying too far from the original aesthetic. I feel this series of furniture pieces, particularly the tables, do just that. The Mesh series is handcrafted and made to order by Horgan Becket in Brooklyn, NY. Contact them for further details and pricing.

Handle Stool by temahome

Update: Originally $495 from MoMA, this stool is now on sale for $299.95 ($269.95 for members).

While it could be said that the price is rather dear for a simple stool, the colors are delightful, and the added ‘handle’ does add a playful sort of functionality. It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but the stool is actually covered in felt, which gives it that soft surface look and feel.

Twist Side Tables

While these tables do seem quite small (10″Wx14″Dx14″H), they are currently on sale for $39.95 for a set of 2. Put four tables together for a coffee table, or keep them separate for smaller drink tables and such. They’d be pretty versatile for any outdoor space and you could buy several without breaking the bank.

Suitable for indoor/outdoor use.
