FURNISHINGS

Showtime Multileg Cabinet

Interchangeable legs and a drop-dead blue color qualifies this cabinet for my wish list…unfortunately, the price makes it go into the ‘if-I-win-the-lottery’ subcategory.

Interchangeable legs support this Showtime Cabinet as it expresses dichotomy and symbiosis. Things internal and external play out in organic forms and established classicism, resting against each other, elegantly coexisting. Noticeable inspiration comes from classical MGM musicals in terms of the dramatic and personified shapes for which the Spanish designer seems to have a penchant.

Wheelbench

Such a smart idea (if only it was a tad more affordable…).

A mobile bench, made of ecologically preserved Accoya wood with a built-in wheelbarrow wheel. The surprising combination of familiar elements strengthens the active ‘exterior feel’ of the bench.
Rogier Martens on the Wheelbench: “Moving a bench with two people has always been a chore… This is a bench you can easily manoeuvre into position. The eye-catching wheel is an invitation to find the best spot. An invitation to be active, to create your world the way you want it, time and again.”

Designer: Rogier Martens
Dimensions: 215 x 45 x 70 cm

Bate-Papo and Mocho Stool

These two entirely intriguing stools are part of MoMA Design Store’s new Destination Brazil collection.

Bate-Papo Stool, $495.00 ($445.50 Members),
Buy it here.

Inspired by stools used in the Brazilian countryside, designer Flavia Pagotti Silva created this contemporary seat. In Portuguese, “bate-papo” refers to an informal conversation between friends. This low, comfortable stool, made of four plywood disks attached to the chair’s frame through ball joints is meant to be used casually and as additional seating in informal settings. Made of plywood, ball joints, recycled rubber, and metal tubing. Size: 14h x 14l x 14″w

Mocho Stool, $550.00 ($495.00 Members), Buy it here.

Designer Sergio Rodrigues favors working with traditional materials like leather, wood, and cane splints in his product designs. The Mocho Stool, an update on the traditional milkmaid’s stool used throughout Brazil, is made of a solid hardwood frame, a single-lathed hollowed seat, and three lathed legs. A handle is incorporated into the design of the stool’s seat, making it easy to transport from place to place. Made of eucalyptus wood.
Size: 15.75h x 17.75″diam.

GJ Chair

Whoa, check this chair out. If you’re considering a lounge chair in a major-purchase sort of way, you might consider this one for it’s relative rarity.

Originally designed in 1963, just 300 pieces were made due to the complexity of the chair’s design. Just a few of the originals exist today. One is in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. In keeping with Jalk’s intentions, the chair and tables are reproduced in their original materials, teak and Oregon pine as well as black-stained ash. Two pieces of wood are moulded and conjoined in this daring design, which won Britain’s Daily Mail Design Competition in 1963.

Designer: Grete Jalk
Lounge chair in moulded plywood.
Available in Oregon pine, teak or black stained ash.

This armless lounger has such nice fluid lines. Take note that this is more of a custom piece, so you would have to pick out your fabric and be patient with delivery.

Sheffield Sofa

Hmm, charismatically caramel or not, the price is not too outrageous on this sofa.

Charismatic in contemporary caramel, fluid in silhouette, these modern furniture supermodels are naturally poised for comfortable seating. Tantalizingly textural, too, in 55% polyester/ 45% linen. We also selected them for our unique collection because of their environmentally-sensitive construction including a durable, hardwood maple laminate frame and legs and seat cushions that have been filled with a recyclable virgin polyester fiber.

80″L X 32″H X 32″D.

Wings Shelf

These remind me of the Flying V Shelves, except they have more of a wing (which makes them different enough).

Functional shelving with a graphic edge! Store books, magazines, kitchenware… or leave empty as decorative wall-art! Group several units together to intensify the lighting and shadows. Still not enough drama? Then try a version with perforated filters and amplify the contrast!

Bardolino Lounge Chair

With credentials to show weather-worthiness, this lounge chair would be an excellent candidate for being an indoor/outdoor chair (as in, would look just fine as an indoor chair until the weather’s nice, then pull it outside).

The indoor/outdoor Bardolino Collection has lines that echo the forms of classic mid-century European furniture, but its materials are squarely in the new millennium…They’re made from a powder-coated aluminum frame that’s wrapped in WaProLace® – a polyethylene fiber that has been specially tested to maintain its color and resist corrosion from chlorine, salt water or other outdoor elements. Nontoxic and 100% recyclable, WaProLace is easy to maintain and can withstand temperatures from -94°f to 176°f. The Lounge Chair is distinguished by a deliberately low seat and slightly inclined back.

bottegaMontana Stools

The left walnut stool has a humble name yet is reminiscent of the Eames Time Life Stools (it follows that the price makes a little more sense when noting the cost of the Eames Stools). Also notable is their other colorful stools, some of which are outdoor friendly (thanks Jake!).

Relief Chair

Hmm, while I can think of a few heavy-hitters that I’d rather spend 4 G’s on, I can pretty much guarantee that none of them are eco-friendly. Plus, the pattern on this chair made from stacking felt pieces is superb and gives a very luxe look.

The Relief Chair remasters the art of sculpting, using digital fabrication and solid, renewable materials. Materials commonly associated with seating – upholstery, foam products and toxic finishes – are all supplanted with thick sheets of natural wool felt, adhered with non-toxic, water-based adhesives. The precision-cut contours of each piece of felt are aggregated into sinuous yet comfortable forms. The cascading edges create an integral pattern with both a visual and tactile effect.

manufacture: Mickus Projects, Brooklyn, NY
materials: Industrial wool felt, stainless steel, water-based adhesive
dimensions: 36.5″ tall x 32″ wide x 24″ deep
