Q collection Junior Alberto Winged Glider

It seems like I know a bajillion couples that are having or have had babies this year, and if they should happen to call upon my expertise of available rockers online, I shall recommend this one.

It rocks and swivels, it’s cozy and wide and of course it’s friendly to the environment too. Perfect for a lullaby, story time or a cup of coffee and a good book, this Winged Glider can hold parent and child together (or several children at once) and will quickly become the favorite chair in your home.
The Alberto Glider is inspired by traditional wing chairs which in early American homes were meant to protect the lounger from a draft. This Winged chair envelopes the lounger and quiets the noise of the everyday bustle.

The slipcover (made of 100% Belgian Linen) is easily removable, machine washable and tailored. A hidden zipper along the back seam allows for the cover to be removed quickly.
Slipcover available in three colors: Cloud, Pebble or Twig.

Peacock Armchair by Cappellini

It’s never a good sign when you have to call in order to get the price on a chair, but this one is worth highlighting despite its lack of available information. It’s pretty new, so hopefully within the next week or two there will be a price posted.

Function meets poetry with this piece made entirely of a single sheet of felt wrapped over a metal base varnished in dark brown. A beautiful, comfortable and inviting chair.

dimensions: 43.25” x 35.5” x 17”seat height x 35.5”h
designed by dror, 2009 (this is the same designer who did the collection for Target posted a couple of days ago)

Price available upon request. Buy it here or here.

    Hummingbird Dresser from Iannone Design

    I’ve posted a few things from Iannone Design, but for some reason I missed posting this particular dresser. I like the more delicate hummingbird motif compared to some of their other designs (maybe because it’s predominantly white with smaller touches of the kirei board).

    Materials: Kirei, gloss white laminate, FSC maple plywood, stainless steel
    Dimensions: W 70″ X D 20.25″ X H 30″

    $3,995.00, from Plushpod
