Parlour Chair from CB2

Does anyone have parlours anymore? I know I don’t, but I guess that doesn’t stop me from appreciating this little chair.

Fresh tangerine slubby weave is no slouch on bona fide living room chair inspired by our thing for Danish design. Barrel arms curve in a warm minimalist hug that looks great from all angles. Clean tapered back offsets deep comfy cushion.

Family Chairs by Lina Nordqvist

Ah, how great are these chairs by Lina Nordqvist? Each one has a slightly different back and leg spindle design, yet they all form a family around a table. Very fitting for a dining room, don’t you think?

Inspired by objects that possess individuality, something beyond function, the designer transformed something well-known and traditional into something unexpected. A fresh interpretation of Swedish stick-back chairs, each of these four chairs features a slightly different yet complementary design on the back and on the spindles between the legs. Together they form a family, each displaying a distinctive character around the table. Versatile and practical, they can also be used throughout the home or office.

Made of lacquered birch wood. Wipe with a damp cloth.
Size: 34.5h x 15.75w x 15.75″d; Seat: 17″h

Reee Chair

This chair is made in the UK from recycled Sony Playstation consoles. While it’s a little alarming that there’s enough Playstations to recycle into furniture, it’s nice to know that they become chairs instead of ending up in landfills. (Just so you know, the 2.4 kg of plastic saved/recycled is about 5.29 lbs.)

W 56 x D 47 x H 80 (cm)
Custom frame colours available for large orders.

Cubic Shelf

I love love love these modern free standing shelves. I think the key to these is that you really need the space in a room to have them set away from the wall with enough room walk around all sides comfortably

.

Ringside Stool

I always find it interesting when mass retailers sell one of a kind pieces. In this case, CB2 is selling these little stools from 100% reclaimed sal wood retrieved from “older village buildings in India as newer construction moves in”.

“Sanded smooth with matte wax finish. Some cracking and darkening may occur over time. All ready to go, no assembly required.”

Holds up to 200 lbs distributed evenly.

Loop Chair by Willy Guhl

I want this outdoor chair so bad I can’t see straight.

The corresponding Loop Table fits neatly inside the chair’s frame for storage.”

Shrine Shoe Rack by Fernando A. Robert

I saw this at this year’s ICFF and was instantly drawn to the idea of highlighting a few pair of special shoes. If I had any room in my house for a walk in closet I would definitely use the shrine shoe rack.

HutJ Camila Rocker by Matthew Kroeker

I’ve meant to post this ages ago. Not only does this armless rocker look incredibly relaxing, it’s also lovely to look at. Plus, with space big enough to curl up on, it’s a natural choice for a living room lounge chair.

available in 10 colors.
Materials: Steam bent Black Walnut frame with bent plywood seat shell. Upholstered with Kvadrat fabric by Maharam

Re-vive Table Legs

Hmm. Four steel clamps (‘revived’ production equipment) are improvised legs for whatever surface you might find. They can be attached and removed easily and have an adjustable height of 15.75″ to 19″. While this allows for a fair amount of creativity, the material requires a certain appreciation of industrial elements. Not everyone wants steel clamps as table legs, but for the select few of you that do, I’m sure you’ll have fun deciding what your table top will be.

materials: 100% steel, powder coating, toughened plastic
dimensions: legs adjustable to a height of 15.75″ – 19″ (I’d say this is more of a coffee/cocktail table height, fyi.)

Rikyu Jubako Table by Conde House

One of my favorite things at ICFF this year was interesting paint treatments to simple wood furniture. It sort of evokes a feeling of Shaker simplicity with modern shapes. As far as I know this particular piece didn’t show at ICFF, but the variegated color scheme reminds me of some of the great pieces I saw earlier this year.

Hans Tables by Jonathan Adler

Whoa, these sure cost a lot more than I was expecting. The perspective is a bit off since I spliced the three together in one image, but you can see how they have a lot of presence, mostly due to the shape and patina, but also because they are solid brass. That means they probably would break your toe if you ran into them rather than toppling over.

Monumental Modernism.
Three striking silhouettes in a blackened finish inspired by the work of Jonathan’s favorite potter, Hans Coper. Made from solid brass with a black patina and hand-rubbed edges.
