Soleil Lounge Chair

A fresh design to add interest to outdoor living, Soleil is perfect for lounging and entertaining. Constructed of steel mesh, it features a powder-coat finish for added durability.

Stackable.

Camping Series

Bring the outdoors inside with this series from Normann Copenhagen’s New Danish Modern furniture collection. The Camping series consists of chairs, table, stool and daybed in moulded beech wood and leather and man-oh-man does it look impressive. It oozes craftmanship; I’d love to see it in person.

Jesper K. Thomsen explains: “The archetypical traditional camping equipment has been my inspiration. The design has a recognition factor that brings the thoughts over to leisure and togetherness, that many think are typical of camping. I like the thought of bringing outdoor pursuits indoors or, perhaps more correctly, freedom in to the living room. At the same time, the icon, camping furniture, has been refined in my interpretation.”

Hightower Gallery Stools – Beech

If you like these stools you better hurry and snap them up fast; currently there are 6 for 50% off at 2modern’s Sample Sale.

Hans Sandgren Jakobsen’s award-winning Gallery was originally designed in 1998 for the Copenhagen Art Association and was meant to be a stool guests could sit on while they enjoyed the paintings on show. Gallery is beautiful in its sculptural simplicity. Hidden behind the minimalist design, however, lies an innovative technique that has made it possible to shape a veneer in several dimensions.

Tumble Stool

Wrapped in foam, this stool can be rolled onto its various surfaces for different seating experiences. It’s not often you get a playful piece of furniture looking so simple (as in, not bright pink or stripes or what not), so I’d say it’s a wonderful choice for extra seating.

“Each position yields a different seating experience: flat, curved, inclined, and the amusing rocker. It is lightweight, durable and versatile. It can be lined-up as bench or scattered in different positions creating a continuously dynamic landscape.”

Designer: GO.LO.GOR.SKY.STUDIO
Black or Gray.
materials: 2.5″ thick foam wrapped around high gloss interior aluminum frame.
dimensions: 18″H x 18″D x 15″W

Sinus trestle

So if you live inside the EU, these trestles are pretty reasonably priced (not to mention very cool)…but don’t get your heart set on them if you’re in the US, because then shipping makes it twice as expensive.

“The trestle Sinus consists of not more than one piece of steel tube.
Sinus is thereby stackable and with its merely three legs sees to a lot of legroom under the table.”

Sinus is available in the colours: Black, White, Blood Orange and Chrome.
H 72 cm x W 74 cm x D 36 cm
185 € per pair VAT included.
(shipping inside the EU is 29,50€, inside Germany is 9,90€)

This Alice-in-Wonderland type stool will have you wanting to host strange tea parties and dress in odd finery…or maybe you’re too old for that sort of stuff.

Also suitable for outdoor use, the Tea Cup stools will make eating al fresco an enchanted experience.

Prince Charles Side Chair

Messing with a good thing can sometimes be disastrous, but other times it’s interesting and strange in a good way, which is the case of this interpretation of the Eames classic.

Modernica’s design studio has collaborated with artist Peter Shire to design the Prince Charles Chair based on the company’s Case Study Fiberglass shell chair and playfully named after the originator of the design, Charles Eames…The Prince Charles chair is an elegant and ironic juxtaposition – past and present. It is an innovative combination of two recognizable styles artfully embracing 300 years of furniture design into a single chair. This, along with the chair’s Queen Anne-like legs, which look like broken violin cut outs, prove opposites attract.

from $359.00-$469.00, depending on the seat selected (arm, shell or wire)
