FURNISHINGS

Softwood Chairs by Veronika Wildgruber

Have you seen these wooden hand sculpted chairs by Veronika Wildgruber? Note that I inserted ‘hand sculpted’ right off the bat so you wouldn’t expect big box store prices. All three chairs (more shown below) are limited editions, so you might want to get a move on if you’re interested. Wildgruber’s Wood Bulb Lights (£150/light) are also worth checking out.

Malhoun Sofa

The first impression of this tufted back sofa is one of a cloud. The low, horizontal proportions and generous scale looks worthy of a serious sit-down-and-ponder (or nap), while the clean geometry of its base and feet keeps it feeling firmly modern.

Ant Chair, 3 leg

You are probably familiar with the regular 4 legged Ant Chair, but take a look at the 3 leg version. I think the shape of the chair looks a little more interesting with only 3 legs to balance on, and considering it’s slightly less expensive than its sibling, this guy might just be the one to go for.

Girasole Dresser

For you Canadian folks, here’s a nice white dresser with a mid century vibe. Crafted of matte-lacquered MDF, it has three self-close drawers and tapered legs. If you’re not in Canada, you might have to do some serious cajoling to get it shipped to your home… good luck if that’s your plan.

Sean Dix Factory Stool

I’d say this is a pretty good price for a modern stool, no? At 27″ high, it’s the right height for a high-ish counter or bar area and powder-coated steel means it can take a beating.

Bookshelf Cupboard

If you’ve got storage issues, check out Skitsch’s Bookshelf Collection. Each piece carefully hides all sorts of clutter behind its trompe oeil door. There’s a full-on sized bookshelf cupboard (above), a sideboard and a smaller side table (shown below).

Link Tables by Tom Dixon

These sturdy tables are made from a single piece of solid aluminum, so you know they’re not going anywhere when the wind blows. Suitable for outdoor use.

Masters Chair

The outlines of the three chairs that inspired the design of this chair weren’t immediately apparent to me, and it was only after noticing such that I began to see it in a non-alien-like way. Seeing that owning a 7 Chair by Arne Jacobsen ($466), a Tulip Armchair by Eero Saarinen ($1,390), and an Eiffel Chair designed by Charles Eames ($249) will run you approximately 2 grand, this chair’s price could be considered a steal.

blow up bamboo collection

You’ve seen the original “blow up” series in stainless steel (2003), but take a look at the newer bamboo version. The natural bamboo sticks are hand tied using raffia soaked in glue, which results in a strong yet lightweight framework. It’s nice to see a warmer alternative to the original steel.

Ercol Loveseat

I’ve had my eye on this loveseat for a while now, and though I’ve no room for it, I keep imagining just where it would go. Especially after seeing it with what looks to be the Original Windsor Dining Table (shown below), there seems no better choice for a smaller eating area.

Iko Iko Chair

Take a look at this laid back chair by Jardan, an Australian owned and family run company. The seat angle and low silhouette look ideal for a lounge chair.

Mi Chair

Made from a completely recyclable thermoplastic polymer, this chair is suitable for both indoors and out. While the silhouette offers a pleasing fluid shape, the apparent comfort and ‘ergonomic versatility’ will make the price tag that much more understandable.
