Studio Chair

This Studio Chair ships flat-packed and is easily assembled, but you won’t find it at your local IKEA. Designed by Jason Whiteley, the chair is simple and precise, and refers to a type of common, robust chair originating in Switzerland. And, unlike some of the results from that aforementioned big box store, this chair is structurally sound and will withstand all manner of use, contract included. Easily assembly also means quick disassembly should you wish to pack it away in storage when not in use.

Zorro Coffee Table

Pa-dow! If the sight of the Zorro Coffee Table doesn’t stun you with its circular (blue!) glass top, I don’t know what will. A minimalist Z structure supports the two overlapping tops, with reflections adding further depth to its shiny surfaces. Choose between the blue glass (above) or the black marble and smokey glass version (below).

Cluster Tables

Well, hello there, you set of delightfully minimal side tables. Would you like to come live with me? I promise to only put you in the best of spots, and to only split you up when extra guests show up and need a spot to set down their tea or coffee cup (there will be a coaster, of course) or maybe even their phone, or, if they’re brainy, their books. Otherwise, you’ll be free to sit together unencumbered so your clean lines and solid surfaces will be shown off to the best of their ability.

Nest Queen Storage Bed

Remember how I shared that I am building a lake house? Well, that endeavor also involves finding furniture to fill that lake house somewhat soon. I am against the idea of filling up a house all at once, because schedule constraints should not force one’s hand when it comes to collecting pieces that one will live on/around for the next several decades of one’s life. Plus, do you really need every room to be stuffed full? No, of course not. Personally, I like furnishing a home bit by bit, adding a piece here and there only when you need (or badly want) it.

New Order Shelving System

I know, shelving is rarely exciting, but this shelving system sort of is. The shelves are made from aluminum- nothing new, I know- but these shelves can be up to 2 meters (>6′) long and they’ll support books and other weighty items, unlike some of the lesser quality aluminum shelves that bend and/or dent under the slightest stack of books.

There’s also an option of open or closed units, back panels, side panels, and folding doors that allow you to customize the look you need. Hide away what you don’t want to see, leave open other areas for display and easy access. There are quite a few colors as well, which just makes everyone happier.

Serra Portable Side Table

Yes, you could just staple a piece of fabric on an existing side table and call it portable, but I very much doubt it would look as nice as the Serra. The belt across the Serra’s middle is high resistance, so it’s ideal for carrying the steel table from sofa to chair or from room to room. Use the table’s surface for your laptop or for a cup of tea, either way, it’ll be nice to have a versatile table that’s easy to move around as needed.

Toboggan® Pull Up Table

The Toboggan Pull Up Table is more suitable for a workspace than one’s living area- just take a look at those little plastic feet- they basically scream ‘put me in a shared office environment!’

So, if you happen to have some influence with the person in charge of ordering furniture for your office, you’d do well to point out that the table can serve as a small work surface or as a casual perch/stool. It’d be easy to move around a shared space, and it is available in several different finishes. To sweeten the deal, be sure to mention Knoll is having its Annual Sale, so you’d get 15% off if an order was placed before 9/29.

Shelltwo Chair

This is a different sort of shell chair, made of multiple 4mm wire rods lined up for a symmetrical seat. It reminds one of Bend’s Seating collection, does it not? The ergonomic wire seat connects with a circular rim, giving the chair its lightweight appearance and minimal feel. As it’s made from painted aluminum, you may use the Shelltwo Chair indoors or outside. There’s a Counter Stool as well, fyi.

‘Originals’ Bar Stool

Add the ‘Originals’ Bar Stool to your list of acceptable seating solutions, for it features a comfortable seat and nicely tapered legs. Fun fact: Ercol founder Lucian Ercolani designed this stool in the 1950s for Ercol’s own designers and draughtsmen, who drew the company’s designs on large drawing boards. You think it’s safe to say it won’t go out of style anytime soon?

Industrial Concrete Side Table

Fond of concrete? How about a super minimal option with an iron shelf? Oh, and don’t worry, because it’s not oodles and oodles of dollars like most minimal table options that we all love. It’s not cheap, either, but it won’t give you a heart attack. There’s a corresponding coffee table as well, but don’t get too matchy-matchy; most of the time it’s better to mix up textures and materials to draw the eye around a room.

Habitables Nightstand

Who else makes a point to watch Etsy’s stock price (for curiosity’s sake) but forgets that there are several stand-out furniture makers selling their wares? Or just plain forgets to check Etsy for furniture in your time of need? Raise your hand, come on. Yeah, me too. Take a look at this bedside table from Habitables and tell me it’s not a decent option. There are various color options (they affect the price, fyi), so you can customize the look to suit your space. Be sure to check out their wall-mounted version as well.

Hannah Desk

I bet you would write your best paragraph/email/novel on this desk. It’s streamlined with subtle curves on its corners and two slim drawers underneath, which is just enough space for desk essentials… and absolutely no clutter. Let’s hope any writing done on this desk mirrors its pared down, elegant aesthetic.

abcdna Spectrum Nesting Tables

Need some brightness in your life? This set of steel nesting tables provide a spectrum of intense hues that’s sure to pop amongst your other things. Available in Red, Blue, or Yellow. (Also, don’t be too bummed about the numbers in the price tag- keep in mind you’re getting three powder-coated steel tables, not one.)

Christian Woo Stool Series

Serious and square, this solid walnut stool by Christian Woo does not mess around. There will be no leaning back or jostling around, thank you very much, because if one of these stools should happen to fall over with you on it, you’ll probably be hurt. The 1.75″ thick hardwood is hand-joined into a rigid form, with a large classic mortise joint as the foot rest.
