Paper Cabinet

Primary colors might not be your thing, but you might want to reconsider when it comes to buying the next storage piece for your home, as Moooi has some new color options for their Paper Collection by Studio Job. If you’re not familiar with the line, each piece is made entirely of paper, cardboard and papier-mâché, and possesses enough classic lines to regally nod at the past while thumbing its nose (so to speak) at it as well with its uncharacteristic materials and colors. The Paper Cabinet, shown above, has four shelves for book and media display, with two bottom panels more storage space.

The whole piece is easy to assemble yet requires no screws, nuts or bolts; this gives the cabinet a “seamless, light sensibility with loads of personality.” Do be sure to take a look at the Paper Patchwork Cabinet (shown below) if you’re a little more brave when choosing multiple colors in your home’s scheme. There’s also the Paper Cupboard in white (also below) for the less adventurous.

Container Stool New Antiques

Plastic is not what many of us would call a luxurious material. However, it is pretty durable when it comes to high traffic areas, and that’s why this Container Stool by Marcel Wanders is sure to make the list when a smaller budget dictates a long-lasting seating and/or table option. The ornamental base references a more traditional style while the smooth top will hold your books, lamps, drinks, or derrière comfortably.

Shale 2 Door / 2 Drawer Wall-Mounted Cabinet

Black Steel Stool

Now here’s something we all want to see more of: multifunctional furniture. The Black Steel Stool by Noon studio is an interesting seating option on its own, but pull a few together and you have a coffee table; stack several straight up, and you have a bookcase. The wooden y-frame supports a simple metal sheet, and the two materials joined together provide a visually appealing warm/cool contrast.

Swish Console Desk

Console or desk, does it matter? What matters is that this Swish Console Desk from Blu Dot has a clever sliding top that conceals a drawer or work top, depending on your preference. There’s a cord management slot, so you can fit your laptop/tablet in there with no problem, and cover it all up if it gets too messy. Excellent idea, isn’t it?

Supra Bed

Woven cane usually is an attribute of more traditional furniture, but there’s a few movers and shakers that are mixing things up and applying it to modern designs. This Supra Bed designed by Mermelada Estudio incorporates perforated woven cane into the curved headboard, giving texture and warmth to an architectural oak grid.

Y.bowl

If a regular sit-on-the-floor steel bowl for your furry friend just won’t work with your décor, you might be a little too concerned with details. That said, hello, nice to meet you, please sit down and join the club; your design obsessive tendencies are welcomed here. The Y.bowl from Doca Pet (literally) elevates the common steel bowl to a considered receptacle for your pets, and with different sizes and heights, you’re able to pick the perfect size. There’s also a fair bit of other similarly modern designs, Squaremeal being my second favorite.

Studio Chair

This Studio Chair ships flat-packed and is easily assembled, but you won’t find it at your local IKEA. Designed by Jason Whiteley, the chair is simple and precise, and refers to a type of common, robust chair originating in Switzerland. And, unlike some of the results from that aforementioned big box store, this chair is structurally sound and will withstand all manner of use, contract included. Easily assembly also means quick disassembly should you wish to pack it away in storage when not in use.

Together Table, Extending

Remember the promise to feature a few more dining tables? Here’s one that doesn’t hide its extension feature. When the drop leaves are locked underneath, the table is rectangular, however, unlock the rounded ends and the table extends to fit more visitors for a larger meal. Plus, it’s from StudioIlse (Ilse Crawford, patron saint of perfect interiors), so you’re safe no matter which size you choose.

LAX 4×2 Bookcase

Do you know how annoying it is when books topple over for lack of bookends? Good, because that saves me from explaining why integrated dividers in a shelving system are a sanity saver. This particular bookcase in the LAXseries gets high points for its spare, simple lines and the natural finish on the solid English walnut wood.
