Wilma Bench

Donna Wilson love. Some of her furniture with SCP is pretty exciting, not to mention this little Wilma bench you see before you. First of all, let’s just get ‘rubberized coconut hair’ out of the way. It’s a sustainable material that “gives the seat a crisp and firm feel.” Okay. Next, the Mabel linen fabric is both playful and quaint, yet the color won’t clash with any of your other exuberant pieces. Splayed legs complete the picture. Yep, it’s a great option for a bench-slash-table.

Rope Buoy Ottoman

Now, take a moment here. Given all the popularity of knitted poufs lately, namely the Flocks Pouf and other such delightful ottomans, this rope buoy ottoman is a steal of a deal. Sure, it’s ‘nautical’, and made out of jute rope, but I photoshopped the lifebuoy out of the picture just to help you see how it’s essentially a wonderful little textural piece. It could be a smart addition to a room that needs a little ‘oomph’ as far as character.

Coir filled, covered in jute.

036 Tone Cabinet

If you don’t know much about parquetry except in relation to flooring, well, you’re in for a treat. Parquetry is the technique of applying wood to make decorative or geometrical patterns on things, so while you might have seen it all over the place as far as floors, maybe seeing it applied to a modern cabinet deserves a second glance. This cabinet utilizes the traditional techniques of parquetry on furniture, and, as Leif.designpark states, “is an attempt at producing furniture using effectively materials and skills established in the Japanese culture.” Sounds good to me.

Available in solid American Black walnut, American Cherry and Chestnut.
Manufacturer: De La Espada
Designed by Leif.designpark
Dimensions: 72 5/6″ W x 17 5/7″ D x 29 1/2″ H

Clean Table and Benches

So don’t quote me on the name of the table…Exquisit refers to it as “gm50750″, but a rose by any other name right? Or in this case, an impossibly clean-looking table whose main design features are contrast black edges and a minimalist cushion that runs the length of the bench. It’s also available in solid black and two different lengths. Oh, and this can also be used indoors and outdoors.

Whoa. Check out this bench by Frank Cresencia. The form focuses on the space “between the bench and the floor of its environment, not the surfaces of the piece alone.”

O-Nest Chair by Tord Boontje

A little something to add a pop of color to a monochromatic scheme. I think the embossed floral pattern on the plastic surface adds a light sense of humor that Mon Oncle would approve of.

minui HandySitt Chair

Remember the minui HandySitt portable seat that we posted a while ago? Now it’s got a companion chair. When combined with the seat, it makes a freestanding high chair. Without the portable seat, it’s a stepstool and/or a chair for older kids. Nice.

Eastvold Classic Media Cabinet

Do you remember Kris’s post on Eastvold Custom Cabinets? They do furniture as well, and, as you can see above, it’s worth a look or two. This media cabinet has wire passages through all the shelves and partitions (and back/bottom), allowing for cable organization (very important). Plus, it’s made from solid walnut, so it’ll look a whole lot better than any assemble-it-yourself media stand.

60″ wide x 20″ tall x 20″ deep.

Domus Lounge Chair

While this chair was designed in 1946, I can’t say that I’ve seen it around that much. Now, the Domus Chair, sure, that’s no stranger, but the curvy lounge chair pictured above is brand new to my eyes. The black stained version has my name written all over it (you just can’t see it because the text is so small, ha ha).

“The characteristic Domus Lounge Chair was designed, alongside the Domus chair, for the public spaces at the Domus Academica’s student housing.”

Designed by Iilmari Tapiovaara
Dimensions: 59w x 70.5d x 39/86.5h

Feedaway Chair

Your baby stays baby-sized for only so long. Instead of spending money on a high chair that will be thrown out eventually, you could get this portable, folding cardboard one for a lot less and just recycle it with the little one has outgrown it.

Feedaway is a portable and lightweight version of the traditional feeding chair that can be pulled out for use as required and otherwise folded away flat, making it suitable for traveling and visiting where there is no baby/toddler feeding chair. Suitable for up to 18months and/or to 20kg. Feedaway is made from recycled Visy cardboard, and comes with its own 3 point safety harness and recycled cardboard carry box that is strong enough to withstand the rigours of travel by car, train or airplane. Feedaway also fits in a large suitcase.

This product has just reached the market and is only available in Australia for now (but can be shipped internationally), so stay tuned to the designer/manufacturer for availability in the states.
