FURNISHINGS

Folding chair by Tove Adman

This is a pretty interesting chair. I’m a little perplexed by the shape, not entirely modern and it looks like an aeronautical device more than a chair, but with a leather cover it trims it up a bit and makes it look more interesting.

Available in polished or matte polished aluminum to be mounted on a wall. Available accessories: cover of reindeer skin or black leather imitation.

Periodic Table

I saw this while we were at
ICFF a couple of weeks ago, and while it was (and is) spectacular, I had no idea it was coated with natural silver, which makes it extremely unattainable to the average consumer. I really do think it’s amazing, but, come on, if you’re spending that kind of money on a coffee table you might need to visit some third world countries to get some perspective.

“Superficial or authentic? This striking piece puts equal emphasis on surface and substance. Using a proprietary process, a massive block of wood is coated with a brilliant layer of natural silver, and a bloom of tarnish around the knots and cracks, resulting in a piece whose stunning surface does nothing to hide the individuality and character of the wood beneath.”

Angelini Coffee Table

At first glance, the top of this table looks to be steel, but instead it’s made from a nice dark gray oak veneer. Also, I like the legs jut out ever so slightly, and how the corners are rounded instead of squared off in sharp angles; both lend a little more personality than it would have had otherwise.

“The contemporary look of the Angelini coffee table infuses a cool and edgy ambiance in any modern setting. This stylish table is made with a brushed stainless steel frame, and a dark gray oak veneer.”
