Valdes Chair H

The interesting framework of this hand-assembled chair seems to merge an old school sensibility with a more modern appreciation of construction.

Lead time is 8-10 weeks.

Tablo Table

Tray tables are excellent choices for either beside the sofa or paired as a coffee table…and, while the idea of using this one as a birdbath is a little unorthodox, it’s also kind of nice to know it has such versatility.

Side table, serving tray, birdbath or plant holder, the indoor/outdoor Tablo Table (2001) embodies versatility in a compact and minimal form. Magnus Lofgren first designed the oversized lacquered metal serving tray and then added the teak wood stand, greatly increasing its functionality. The complementary materials and neutral colors suit most interiors and exteriors alike and the tray can be used on its own.

H 17.5″ W 21.75″ D 21.75″

(just remembered we posted this same Tablo Table back in January from a different retailer, where it’s sold separately as a stand and a tray and it’s available in other colors, for about the same price, AND there’s two different heights for the stands: 15.75″ and 21″. fyi.)

Cloth Table by Gerard der Kinderen

This tongue-in-cheek table can be used indoors or out, thanks to the polyurethane finish.

The innovative and intriguing Cloth Table is one of 20 furniture designs developed by Gerard der Kinderen in 2007 after two decades as a creative director in the communications industry. Topped with a ‘cloth’ made from a durable, flexible combination of polyether and polyurethane that is both soft to the touch and ideally suited to outdoor living, the table was selected as the Official Table for Tokyo Designers’ Week 2007.

W29.5 x D29.5 x H29.5 in.

Lex Corner Sofa

I like the almost “articulated” look of this sofa.

Ergonomic and functional comfort make the Lex family exceptional. The frugality of its design and its minimalism provide the series with a timeless elegance. Its clear lines and obvious qualities speak for themselves. This combination results in beautiful lines that make Lex a very easy piece of furniture to use. It’s not just comfortable to sit on but also exceptionally easy on the eyes.

This bench is absolutely spectacular. If you’ve got the money, buy it.

“Is it a bench, a coffee table, or a sculpture? Yes, it is! The Son Of A Bench features interlocking loops of hot-rolled steel create an intriguing form of mass and negative space. A glossy black rubber-dipped skin positively drips with attitude.”

These have an interesting texture…for the price, they’d make a good choice for a side table or nightstand.

Wrapped in textural water hyacinth, these side tables evoke an authentic folk-art appeal. Group them together for a distinct alternative to the traditional side table or nightstand. The fast-growing sustainable fiber is hand woven over a wooden base.

Eames Lounge and Ottoman

A couple of years ago, in a completely uncharacteristic move, an Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman joined my living room*. Yes, it was expensive, and, yes, quite a bit of thought and deliberation occurred before the actual purchase, but it is possibly the most comfortable chair ever (really), and will remain so the many years to come. So, if the iconic Eames Lounge is something you’ve been thinking about, I give my thumbs up, and remind you that there’s only a day or two left to take advantage of the sale price. If you can’t yet take the plunge, don’t worry, there’s always next year.

In continuous production since its introduction in 1956, the Eames Lounge Chair is widely considered one of the most significant designs of the 20th century. It was the culmination of Charles and Ray Eames’ efforts to create a club chair using the molded plywood technology that they pioneered in the ’40s. In Charles Eames’ words, the vision was a chair with the “warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.” The result has become the consummate lounge set, timelessly blending old-fashioned comfort and visionary modernism. Pairing soft, inviting leather with the sleek form of molded plywood, the seat is balanced on a five-star, die-cast aluminum base. All parts are replaceable by Herman Miller;. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller.

(*I think every person that has sat in it has let out some form of exclamation or audible sigh of pleasure, which to be honest, is sometimes funny and other times a little disturbing (depending on the person).)
