Isometric Table and Chairs

Austere lines and precise craftsmanship make this dining set a serious consideration if you’re in the market for updating your dining area. Take special note of the Isometric Chair; it’s incredibly lovely.

Designed to accompany the Isometric Chair, the Isometric Table is a study in reduction and opposition. The design explores the intersection of two-dimensional planes flowing together to create a three-dimensional form.

Kikkerland Erasers- Rhino, Gorilla and Polar Bear

I’d buy these just to look at. Something about actually using one of these as an eraser and seeing it lose shape and disappear bit by bit would be sort of sad, which I suppose is the whole point.

The Rhino, Gorilla and Polar Bear have become the endangered through negative Human activity. Kikkerland would like these magnificent animal to be around for a long time to come so 2% of sales will be donated to helping endangered species through the Center for Biological Diversity. Made from safe PVC free TPR.

Fulton Desk, Bookcase, Media Console

This is bare bones minimal with a tiny bit of rustic wood to warm it up. I’d say the prices are reasonable, or at least they don’t hurt the eyes.

Fulton’s minimal lines and mixed materials make a streamlined, rustic-modern statement. The warmth of the richly-figured, reclaimed teak veneer top contrasts beautifully with the industrial black metal frame, finished in three steps for an oxidized effect.

How about this ‘urban’ bedding from CB2? Like it or not? I’m leaning towards ‘like’.

Q collection Junior Alberto Winged Glider

It seems like I know a bajillion couples that are having or have had babies this year, and if they should happen to call upon my expertise of available rockers online, I shall recommend this one.

It rocks and swivels, it’s cozy and wide and of course it’s friendly to the environment too. Perfect for a lullaby, story time or a cup of coffee and a good book, this Winged Glider can hold parent and child together (or several children at once) and will quickly become the favorite chair in your home.
The Alberto Glider is inspired by traditional wing chairs which in early American homes were meant to protect the lounger from a draft. This Winged chair envelopes the lounger and quiets the noise of the everyday bustle.

The slipcover (made of 100% Belgian Linen) is easily removable, machine washable and tailored. A hidden zipper along the back seam allows for the cover to be removed quickly.
Slipcover available in three colors: Cloud, Pebble or Twig.

$1995.00, Buy it here.

Peacock Armchair by Cappellini

It’s never a good sign when you have to call in order to get the price on a chair, but this one is worth highlighting despite its lack of available information. It’s pretty new, so hopefully within the next week or two there will be a price posted.

Function meets poetry with this piece made entirely of a single sheet of felt wrapped over a metal base varnished in dark brown. A beautiful, comfortable and inviting chair.

dimensions: 43.25” x 35.5” x 17”seat height x 35.5”h
designed by dror, 2009 (this is the same designer who did the collection for Target posted a couple of days ago)

Donna Wilson ‘Pouffes’

These poufs not only add pattern and interest to a room, but also they add a soft texture to a seating area. Plus, you can’t go wrong with anything done by Donna Wilson, or maybe you can and I just refuse to believe it.

*Each is made by hand stuffing Calico bags and upholstering them with knitted panels, reminiscent of segments of an orange.
*Upholstered in a specially designed Donna Wilson knitted wool pattern made in Scotland.

Hummingbird Dresser from Iannone Design

I’ve posted a few things from Iannone Design, but for some reason I missed posting this particular dresser. I like the more delicate hummingbird motif compared to some of their other designs (maybe because it’s predominantly white with smaller touches of the kirei board).

Materials: Kirei, gloss white laminate, FSC maple plywood, stainless steel
Dimensions: W 70″ X D 20.25″ X H 30″

$3,995.00, from Plushpod
