Andrew Chair and Twig Coffee Table (Sale)

Two modern-ish items on sale…(I might say once more I firmly believe you get what you pay for, though I’m sure there are some of you that are more concerned with the price tag than materials).


Andrew Relax Chair
, $189.00 $149.99, Buy it here.

Few chairs cut a slim, low-angled profile while having the kind of wide seat support that lets you settle in. Fewer still manage to be slender and inviting without hogging space. The European-style Andrew Relaxer does it all with a lineup of unbeatable qualities, from gently curving lines, rich chocolate
bi-cast leather to an elegant profile suitable for any room.
24″W x 23.5″D x 28.25″H (15.5″H Seat)


Twig Coffee Table
, $499.00 $349.99,
Buy it here.

Frame is hand crafted of solid rattan stems. Each piece is nailed together by hand and then carefully assembled by the artisan. No two are alike. Each rattan stem is individually finished with a nitro-cellulose lacquer topcoat prior to assembly in a multi-step process. Glass top is .5” thick with a straight edge.

Dimensions: 38”W x 38”D x 18”H

Ronde Armchair

$50 for the white stackable Ronde Armchair. Not bad…

The Ronde Armchair, designed by Aldo Ciabatti, is a familiar sight in cafes throughout Europe. Its rounded spoon shape is outlined in tubular steel, and two simple arches swoop gracefully to serve as both legs and armrests. Neatly welded onto the frame is flattened sheet-metal mesh, a semitransparent screen that gives the chair its light look. The highly functional, affordable chair stacks up 10 high and is easily cleaned. Made in Italy.

Kast Tall Storage

While this might be high on the price scale, it sure has some nice attributes: the very large size and the odd (but good) door colors.

Kast is a storage unit that is modular in structure. Supplemented by two simple wooden crates and a further basic module, a shelf/wall cupboard combination arises. Van Severen paid special attention to the color for the sliding doors, which not only emphasize Kast’s elegant and yet seemingly classical proportions, but also give it a fresh and optimistic sense.
Kast tall storage is offered with eight sliding doors in pink, dark green, bronze-grey, dark blue, sulphur yellow and bright white powder-coated sheet aluminum.

54.25″ h | 96″ L | 15.75″ w

Simple Double Doux Bed

This innovative bed frame shape allows a quick transition between a single size bed, a full size bed or two beds. (Get it? Simple, Double or Doux). It’s very cool but it will set you back around $3,500.00 and it needs to be shipped from Switzerland.

Carved Bench

The only thing that keeps me from labeling my design style as full-on modern is my slight obsession with all things antique, or maybe not all things, because there’s some pretty hideous furniture out there, but a fair portion at least. This bench has that ever-intriguing antique look along with the nice bullet point of being built from reclaimed wood salvaged from Korean farmhouses. It looks like the perfect companion to an empty entrance hall.

“This carved wooden bench features classic spiral patterns skirting the base of the seat and a beautiful patina.
The surface is smooth to the touch…”
