FURNISHINGS

Sheep by Sam Brown

These sheep might be just the thing to add a little touch of playfulness to a room.

“Born and bred on the Isle of Wight, although the Sheepskin is from New Zealand. Sheep seats make perfect city pets. There’s no need for a garden and these Sheep seats make great occasional seating with fun personalities. Perfect for adults and kids to sit on, and the child sheep can even be used as a footstool.”

Black/Ivory New Zealand sheepskin. Beech-wood legs with rubber “hooves”.

Dimensions: Adult H 64, W x D 61 cm; Child H 40, W x D 35 cm

Bench With Moveable Tray

This looks like a good choice if you need bench with storage options for miscellany.

“This exceptionally comfortable bench is perfect in an entryway, living room, or bedroom. But what makes it really special is that this bench is also a coffee table, a storage unit, and a shelf! Solid pine frame houses three drawers to conveniently store anything from gloves and scarves to DVDs, plus a roomy and decorative shelf to store smaller items within easy reach. Moveable bent tray slides horizontally or can be removed completely.”

Solid taeda pine frame, bent plywood tray. Cast-brass hardware.

60″L x 16.75″D x 19″H

Smock Chair by Patricia Urquiola

The Smock collection shows such detail and intricacy with fabric yet it has an otherwise modern and simple silhouette…if I had loads of cash, I’d probably already own this or any one of Urquiola’s other pieces, but for now I’ll have to make do by pretending I have my pick.

“patricia urquiola loves playing with textures, as you can see in her smock line of furniture. urquiola bunches up the upholstery around hoops and round frames, giving the smock line a modern look with a rich and almost antique feel.”

steel frame covered in injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam. chromed or varnished arms. sofa back cushions stuffed with goose down. underfeet in synthetic rubber.

Cross Credenza

If you’re the sort who prefers to match pieces (as in, your dining table matches the credenza) now you have an extra option of collections to choose from. The
Cross Table (above right, $2,750.00) now has a friend.

“Matthew Hilton designed the Cross Credenza (2007) as a material and visual complement to his Cross Extension Table. But its straightforward aesthetic and solid craftsmanship make it an apt choice not only for the dining room, but also for media storage or the front hall. The Credenza has three drawers on the left, the topmost being slimmer than the others, sized for cutlery or utensils. Two doors on the right open onto two shelves which are height-adjustable to suit individual needs. With a solid oak frame, the Cross Credenza has an oak veneer that coordinates with the Cross tables and Profile Chair, as well as the Cross Coffee Table. Blum® soft-closure hardware rounds out the quality craftsmanship.”

Solid natural oak frame and body; birch plywood drawer inserts; oak veneer top and fronts over particleboard; Blum soft-closing hardware.

Holey Stump

These are great. I can see them being used as stools or even as bedside tables. The little nooks could be used for a small book, a remote control, your cell phone, glasses, or any number of things that people like to keep close at night.

Available in aqua, black, green and white.

Scoop Stool by Turnstone

I like the idea behind this stool.

“One of the design goals for Turnstone’s Scoop Stool was to avoid competing with the architecture of a space. Inspired by a grain scoop, this casual stool is a perfect compliment to a modern home or business groupspace.”

Chop Side Table

Just about as minimal as a piece of wood can get, this side table would be perfect beside a chair or sofa.

“One singular slab of eco-friendly mango wood, unspoiled. Oiled to bring out its raw beauty. One sidles up to a sofa, two brews a coffee table. No two alike, each will gain more character through time.”

Intelligentsia Desk

This has such a vintage look to it; the simple frame, wooden drawers and glass top all combine to make a desk that is compact yet serviceable.

“Exceptional ideas need an exceptional place to flourish. What could be more inspiring than a sophisticated structure incorporating elegant hand forged steel, polished wood and textured glass surfaces?”

Wave Sofa by Palau

I just discovered the design group Palau from the Netherlands, and they have some pretty inspiring work.

“Made in The Netherlands, the Wave features environmentally-friendly Kvadrat fabrics. These fabrics bear the EU’s environmental “flower” label that can only be awarded when the product’s life cycle is among the best in the market.”
