Mechano Chair

Apparently the toy called Meccano is pretty much the same as Erector Sets which makes a whole lot of sense.

Tam Tam Stools

The Tam Tam Stool is pretty much a classic, and at $48 you can afford to splurge on a few if the mood strikes you.

Originally introduced by designer Henry Massonnet in 1968, this minimal stool was an instant hit because of its versatility, comfort, ease to carry and snap together. An iconic photo of the very iconic Brigitte Bardot on a Tam Tam elevated the stool to cult accessory. Today, the Tam Tam is made in the same French factory using the same mold that gave rise to the original version. Collect all colors, or mix candy brights with futuristic metallics. Or punch up a room with the graphic silhouette of a single stool in a contrasting color. Tam Tam is terrific.

An eclectic kitchen, dining or office mix-in. All-alum even goes outdoors. Expertly machined; hand-polished. During winter months store indoors or keep covered.

Mademoiselle Rocking Chair

Truly one of the more elegant and interesting rocking chairs, this design by Ilmari Tapiovaara is a testament to how traditional furniture can be updated and improved upon.

Tapiovaara designed the Mademoiselle in 1956 as a comfortable refinement of the traditional chairs found in many Scandinavian homes at that time. The Rocker’s spindles and plank seat echo early American Windsor chairs, and even Shaker chairs, but with a unique sculptural form. Rather than using four stretchers to support the legs, Tapiovaara designed a different solution: When the Rocker is seen from the side, a composition of triangles appears that’s both functional and aesthetically unique. Tapiovaara gave the chair an extra-deep rock by extending the back rails.
