FURNISHINGS

Folding Patio Set

This is as ‘cheap as chips’ or so the saying goes. For $100, you can now afford to dine outside on your patio (if you have one) and enjoy the fine weather soon to arrive.

“This folding Patio Set is the perfect thing for impromptu barbecues or every day. The table top is 24″ in diameter. Includes the table with two chairs. Shipping $20.”

Update: This item is unfortunately no longer available. (10/5/09)

Black Medallion Console

This console would be ideal for an entryway or behind a sofa. It has the detailing of the traditional Chinese medallion console to add interest but wouldn’t take up too much visual space. (I’m a big fan of mixing different styles and periods of furniture- something like this would provide an interesting contrast to a super modern sofa or chair.)

Satin-black or red lacquer

52″w x 12″d x 35″h (exterior)

Hedge Coffee Table and Rectangular Side Table

Both of these tables are almost unbelievably priced- either or both would be perfect for the outdoor weather that’s just around the corner.

hedge coffee table:
“Deliberately designed on the same low square grid as our Resort to pull right up to the edge, or in between, chairs and ottoman in modular fashion. Spare lines can also do coffee or side table duty with any outdoor, even indoor, setup. Rustproof, UV-resistant metal design with a slightly iridescent charcoal powdercoat with a hand-welded lower-level X. Ready to go, no assembly required.”

$129.00, Buy it here.

rectangular side table:
“At your service to perch a tall iced tea, a good read, or a tube of SPF. Apartment balconies and urban decks dig its tiny footprint. Industrial steel in a ivory powdercoat. Levelers included. Indoor or sheltered outdoor sites.”

Scatola Armonica Sideboard

Pairing a little detail with an otherwise simple modern shape seems to suit this sideboard quite well. There’s just enough scroll work to keep it interesting, yet it wouldn’t clash with or distract from other pieces in the room.

“Straddling the line between minimal and maximal, the Scatola Armonica Sideboard teams a spare, modern shape and materials with richly ornamental, scrolling details.”

24″ H x 79″ W x 20″ D

401 Loveseat

This has got to be the best deal around on a sofa. Now mind you, the price is so low, you may want to investigate the upholstery by asking for a swatch. But, if you’re on a tight budget and need something to sit on for a small space, this may be just what you’re looking for.

Tevere Chair by Hida

Man, this chair costs a pretty penny, but there’s something very nice about the simplicity of materials and form.

“The Hida Tevere Chair provides comfortable seating in a design that transforms natural material into a sturdy, contemporary form. The Tevere Chair features Sugi wood, a tree native to Japan that provides a lightweight, but strong, construction material.”

Designed by Enzo Mari

Multi Table with Trestle Legs

There are five different options for legs on this table, but the trestle legs seem to be the most distinctive…

An easy, modern solution that’s ultimately versatile, the Multi Tabletop allows you to customize any dining nook, work area or home office over and over. Sleek and rectangular, the Multi Table comes in three sizes and four distinctive finishes that you can then pair with one (or more) of our Multi Table leg options.”

Hugo Day Bed

Obviously this is really close to the Daybed designed by Mies Van Der Rohe, however it’s not a copy because the head pillow is slightly different, which is why it gets away with just being called “inspired” by Mies. I’m mostly posting it because I was really impressed by the low price tag.

“The Tall CU side table by Kristalia is functional as a table, bench, or service top… use next to a sofa, near a bed, or even in the garden or a public place. Made of rigid moulded polyurethane. Suitable for outdoor use. Sturdy and easy to clean. Versatile and practical to use anywhere!”

Float Bed

It’s hard to come by a modern bed that hits under the $1G mark, and this one is surprisingly stylish. If I didn’t know the price, I would guess it to be at least twice as much.

“…our Float Bed elevates your sleeping hours to stylish new heights thanks to a raised platform and sleek, elegant lines. Designed to deliver hours of soporific comfort, the Float Bed accommodates most queen-size mattresses in a versatile wenge finish that never tires of mixing and matching.”

BLTD webclip

Yes, we’ve jumped on the bandwagon (albeit rather late) due to many a request. For those of you with iPhones, you can now add our BLTD webclip icon to your homescreen, allowing access with a mere touch of your finger. We actually created it a while back, but are a little late in letting you know…apologies, apologies. Just delete your old link and add it in again to pull up the new icon. If you’ve not added BLTD yet (gasp!) or if you’re not sure how, here’s a quick walk through:

On your iPhone:
1. Find BLTD in Safari
2. Tap on the ‘+’ sign
3. Tap ‘add to home screen’
4. Ta-da! The icon should appear on your home screen
