Alice in Wonderland Cabinet

Alice in Wonderland is an interesting mashup of materials and styles. Traditional elements are implemented in oak while much more angular and modern lines in white MDF. Oh wait, what is you say? Based on the description its a combination of a cabinet and writing desk. I’ll take the designer’s word for it. Regardless of what you want to call it, it certainly will add quite a visual punch to any room.
Designer: studio-ziben
Dimensions: Height 1190mm / Depth 840mm / Width 500 mm
Material: MDF glossy varnished, oak wood

Bisonte Stacking Stool

Obviously the name denotes the design, but what strikes me most about this stool is not only the shape of one on its own, but the shape when stacked several high. It almost looks like an extremely robust coat hanger or totem-like sculpture.

Designer: Michele De Lucchi
Materials: birch plywood

Miniature Tabouret Hemp Stools by Christian Astuguevieille

So rough and uncouth, yet so chic and expensive. Irreverent design is Astuguevieille’s signature, as is rope…he uses it whenever possible! And when he’s not using rope, he’s covering things in other questionable media…

(Available with short or long legs)
21 x 13 x 30 cm

Sean Dix Forte Coffee Table

Not a bad price for a coffee table, seeing as it’s comfortably under the $500 mark. The angled legs makes for an interesting detail, yet it’s robust and sturdy looking, as it should be since the legs are cut from solid American walnut (or oak). A veneered hardwood top finishes it off with a nice ‘organic geometry’.

American Walnut ($379) or American Oak ($349).
Also available in a round-topped version for $499.

Pippi Kids Stool

Take a look at the dimensions before you get too attached; it’s a kid’s stool. Too bad it isn’t also available in a bigger version, but for those of you with little offspring now you have a very smart/cute option for their playroom seating.

Artist Deck Chairs

If the collector side of you would rather sit in a special sort of deck chair, you’ll be happy to know Artware Editions is offering artist-designed deck chairs by Damien Hirst, Gary Hume, Sir Peter Blake, Keith Tyson and others. And yes, they are suitable for the outdoors, so you better actually use them if you buy some, because it would be sort of silly to be precious about a deck chair (for goodness sake).

Solid Merpauh wood frame with digitally-printed, sailcloth sling.
48″h x 23″w x 30.5″d

Damien Hirst deck chairs: $425 + shipping

Vienna Side Chair

It’s pretty amazing that Thonet’s first bentwood chair was designed in 1859, especially considering how popular it still is. Plus, this particular chair is very affordable at $120, and you can rest easy knowing it’s produced in one of the original Thonet bentwood chair factories.

White or Black.

Spoon Table

Nice legs, right? Not only are they shapely, but they also fold down to make for easy storage. A very thin (15mm) honeycomb aluminum top makes for an extra light weight surface.

Design Antonio Citterio & Toan Nguyen, 2008.
Polypropylene, honeycomb aluminum, laminate.

Dazzle Chair

Oh, dear Bertjan Pot, how he never ceases to amaze and wonder. The Random Light, the Carbon Chair, the Lazy Bastard. So much goodness. And now the Dazzle stacking chair, apparently named in reference to the Dazzle painting used on ships extensively during World War I.

Paperweight Desk

Made entirely of 100% recyclable cardboard, this white gloss desk knocks the socks off of practically every other desk out there. At £151.00 (~$225), it’s super affordable, has a cable management system (very important) and can be assembled in a few minutes. If you move around a lot, the assembly/disassembly of furniture should not be taken lightly, nor should you miss the fact that this desk is super light and super strong. Now, if only a US retailer would pick it up, I’m sure exclamations of joy would be heard throughout the 50 states.
