FURNISHINGS

Dot Coffee and Side Table

These round Dot Tables are quite the buy at $150 and $400 respectively. It’s a lot of that clean-lined look for a rather reasonable price tag (in my opinion).

Durable wood construction, Oak veneer with barley finish.

Dot Side Table (14″diam x 18″h): $149.00
Dot Coffee Table (36″diam x 14″h): $399.00

Tab Stool, 5.5 designers

From what I can tell using a site translator, this little stool is a cushion support made of 4 identical parts (profiles) you can assemble without nails or screws. Think of it as the perfect place to show off your favorite pillow.

Made in France.

Offi Nester Stacking Boxes

These would be super handy to own if you happen to move around a lot. Whether you stack them for book storage or use them as small tables, they’re certainly a smart upgrade from plastic milk crates (which we all had at one point in our lives, so don’t feel bad if you’re guilty of owning them now). I can also see them working well in a kid’s room, only if the kids are past the climbing up furniture stage, of course.

Like Russian nesting dolls the Nester Boxes fit inside of each other for easy transport and shipping. The small footprint also cuts down on the amount of packaging needed for shipping. Each box is finely crafted in molded ply creating simple and versatile storage. They can be used stacked for book storage or if used as singles they can function as small tables.

Walnut or Birch.
Sold only in sets of 4.
dimensions: 15l x 46w x 15h

Bookwave Hanging Storage

Whoa. How amazing is this storage unit? It sort of reminds me of those shoe closet hanger thingies except bigger/better/stranger. I wonder if this could be replicated in a DIY sense, for those of us that can’t afford the price tag? I can see it working well for newspapers or magazines, or even to store clothes (if you can afford such a thing purely for wardrobe purposes).

Felt fabric and stainless steel.
Designer: Mehtap Obuz – Demirden design, Brand: Ilio
Size of the hanging storage : L 60 cm x D 30 cm x H 210 cm – Ceiling rail : L 100 cm, Ceiling fixation included.

Offi Big Rib Coffee Table

A coffee table inspired by pork ribs sounds frankly more than a little unappetizing, however once you get past the food connotation, the modular form makes sense. Easy to assemble, the ribs allow the table to grow to whatever size you need, enabling a custom fit at a fraction of a custom price. With the purchase of an add-on kit (soon to be available) the table can grown three ribs at a time.

Designed by Eric Pfeiffer.
37″ L x 30″ W x 16″ H

Also, fyi: this retailer is offering a 15% off sale for orders totaling $150 or more, January 8, 2010 – January 31, 2010.

Folding Chair and Ottoman

I’ve been catching up on my rss feeds, and was delighted to find this Folding Chair and Ottoman over on Cool Material. Easy to transport and easy to store, it looks like something to seriously consider if you’re short on space (or, on the run).

Inspired by the clever design of pop-up books, we developed a chair that could be used as a permanent piece of furniture in modern homes and businesses but could also be easily transported, stored, and set up. Despite the minimalistic form, it provides a comfortable and stable resting place just about anywhere.

* Made from a single sheet of plywood
* Folds flat in seconds for quick storage
* Assembles easily without tools
* Optional snap-on cushions (in 3 colors)

The chair folds down to a 60″ x 30″ rectangle, at 1 3/4″ tall.
Shipping and handling for the Folding Chair anywhere in the Continental US is $130.

Offi Trundle Desk

Extra space is always at a premium, and if you work like I do, spreading out papers and such is a necessary evil to get a job done. This desk seems to tackle that problem with ease, with an extra drawer-like surface to give you the space you need. Plus, the idea of not necessarily having to straighten up (instead just push in the drawer) is a nice thought.

Hidden cord management storage.

Café America Chair from Grain

Chain-link fencing for a chair? Well, sure, why not… though I wonder if it would snag your clothes.

Café America is a surprisingly comfortable indoor/outdoor chair. Taking inspiration from ubiquitous chain-link fencing, it recontextualizes the unsung material. A unique cushioning effect is created by the lightly tensioned chain-link seat and back. Café America is made of recycled chain-link whenever possible and flat-packs for efficient shipping and storage.

Custom color powder coating available for $100 up-charge.
Materials: Recycled galvanized steel chain-link with stainless steel rod and fasteners.
38.25″h x 17″w x 21.5″d

Knitted Pouf from CB2

Finally, an affordable pouf.

I’ve really loved the looks of the poufs from DWR, but at $1600, the cost was prohibitive to say the least. Now CB2 has come out with one in 100% cotton. The bad news: it only comes in the one color. The good news, it’s 100% cotton so it’s ripe for a quick little DIY using either bleach or Rit-dye to suit even the most sophisticated color-palates.

Dimensions
left pouf (CB2): H 14″ Diameter 20″
right poufs (DWR): H 11″ Diameter 24″ (top), H 15″ Diameter 33″ (bottom)

HOI Magazine Chair

It seems like there’s a recent trend in furniture designs where you can literally surround youself in books. The Bibliochase and the Bookinist were the first examples I’ve seen, and we mentioned the Cave shelving on the blog before, and now we have this, except this one specifically caters to magazines (not that you can’t put books on it if you wanted to).

Materials: Glass and MDF
Size: 116 cm wide x 86 cm deep x 73 cm high

Carpenter Stool

I love these little stools–one would look great solo or if you had the cash you could get a few. Each stool is hand-made and has raw chestnut legs and a high-gloss faceted seat.

Dimensions: W. 350 x D. 350 x H. 470

Capsule Collection by Ziglam & Brook

I fell hard and fast for Deadgood when I first saw their Love Collection, and I might just have a serious crush on the Capsule Sofa and Chair. The colorful buttons and graduated tones add just the right amount of playfulness… might be the perfect thing to knock the serious edge off a room.
