Tropics Dining Table with Trestles

The legs on this table look identical to the Multi Table I posted a while ago, but this picture (or maybe the high gloss top) puts it into perspective. Plus, there’s the option of ‘Golden Trestles’ (which, if you say aloud, sounds like some type of candybar or fantasy land).

“Dine or work in style, times infinity with our Tropics Table. An easy, modern solution that’s ultimately versatile, allowing you to customize any dining nook, work area or home office over and over. Sleek and rectangular, the Tropics Table comes in 3 options.”

Color and Leg combinations: Chocolate with Golden Trestles, Zebrano Wood with Chromed Trestles, High Gloss Walnut with Chromed Trestles

71″w x 35″ d x 30″ h

Rochelle Sofa by Gus Design

With definite roots in mid-century design, this sofa has some rather nice detailing with the exposed wood and button-tufting.

‘Solid wood legs elevate this Gus Modern couch off the ground, effecting a unique “floating” look. The wood detailing extends up the back of the sofa for a striking visual accent. Button-tufted fabric upholstery achieves a pleasing loft for hours of relaxation, while a tight back eliminates the need to continually arrange and tidy loose cushions.’

84″W x 38″H x 29.5″D.

Tosca Chairs by Magis

This all around indoor/outdoor/stackable chair would tough it out in harsher (i.e. high traffic) areas, but keep in mind there’s a minimum order of 4.

“Tosca by Magis is a new stacking chair with arms finished in glossy or polyamide. Tosca is suitable for outdoor and indoor use and can be used for many contract projects. Tosca can stacks nine units high and is ideal for small spaces. Designed by Richard Sapper, 2007″

New Antiques by Marcel Wanders for Cappellini

I’m enjoying the New Antiques collection by Marcel Wanders. This chair in particular strikes my fancy. It’s a Klismos style chair (an ancient Greek form) merged with the turned wood technique, where wood is thrown on the lathe for the “knobby” appearance.

“A stunning takeoff on period furniture, the new antique wood-turned chairs and tables are available in matte black or white lacquer. the chair seats are upholstered with polyurethane foam and covered with a choice of smooth G908 or stamped leather of the same color choice as the frame. the seat is also available made of woven polyester belts with the cappellini logo.”

Sydney Lounge Chair

While this is categorized as a lounge chair, it looks like more of a ‘chaise lounge’ to me. But, hey, they’re selling it for $250, so they can call it whatever they want.

Outdoor safe.

“Sleek and elegant, the Sydney Chair features a synthetic weave with an aluminum frame.”

Trollsta side table

This is actually pretty pricy considering where it comes from, but it’s a pretty great piece. I think it’d be perfect as a little bedside table.

Carbon Chair (2004)

If you’ll look closer at this chair, you’ll see there’s no metal frame…it’s completely hand coiled from 100% carbon fiber and epoxy. As Bertjan Pot explains, “Every point on the rim of the chair is connected with all 4 points where the seat is connected to base-frame.”

‘Carbon Chair of Bertjan Pot and Marcel Wanders speaks of dedicated craftsmanship in connection to high tech materials and the material expertise only possible by personal excitement, passion and the love of “enlighted amateurs”.’

Bamboo is becoming a fast favorite in product use for good reason; it’s rapidly renewable and durable.

Low Pad Chair by Jasper Morrison

I just re-fell in love with this chair today when I saw it over at Nicolas’ small cool apartment entry at Apartment Therapy. We originally posted it almost 3 years ago, and I thought it was time for a revisit.

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.”

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.

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.
