Burnt Credenza 07, A Numbered Edition by Rob Zinn

This might need a ‘platinum member’ sticker, because while I sure can’t afford it, there’s a very small percentage of those of you who can. This reclaimed Douglas Fir credenza seems to have its credentials: hand carved/foundry cast solid bronze legs, intricate cut-out pulls, powder coated aluminum doors, signed and numbered by the designer (there’s only 10), not to mention the wood has been scorched and oiled to get the right finish. It’s a beauty.

“When scorched with fire and rubbed with oil, the lake-salvaged Douglas Fir takes on a richly colored and heavily textured black finish. The sculptural legs were originally carved in plaster by the designer, and later cast in solid bronze. Punctuated by crisp satin white doors with intricate door pulls, this piece is truly unique.”

Mid-Century Sofa

Here’s a nice little economical sofa that can be converted to a twin size bed. The conversion isn’t done quickly as the back support needs to be unscrewed, but it is a dual function piece none the less.

Crochet Table

I’m impressed that this is under $50.

“Sturdy handmade iron rod frame with intricate sunburst of wire weaves together 60s groove, ethnic handicrafts, smart stacking functionality. Colorful olivine, yolk and grey epoxy powdercoat finishes are rustproof.”

In House Low Chair

Check out the subtle crook of the legs and the way the leather wraps around the frame- it’s little details like those that make me understand the price tag. Plus, I like how it looks hefty.

“…low slung lounge with double-back leather seat + back on walnut or ash frame.”

Sawbuck Chair

This Sawbuck chair displays typical Wegner style. A surefire classic.

“A sculpture you’ll enjoy every day, the Sawbuck chair emboides the best of Danish Modern design- in fact, an early version of this chair sits in The Danish Arts and Industry Museum. Designed by Hans Wegner in 1951, this special edition in created exclusively for [Room & Board] by Carl Hansen & Son, the original manufacturer of the Sawbuck.

Steelwood Chair, Magis

This chair sounds like it’s been through the wringer a few times, but the end result does not disappoint. It’s easy to appreciate how the curving steel plate and solid beech provide a rich contrast- they give detail to an otherwise simple form.

“The Steelwood chair is a radical assemblage of two traditional materials: steel and wood. Unlike its plastic siblings, it is aimed to become more delicate through time, acquiring a patina over uses and years. The steel forming process required deep technological research due to the unique and intricate form. It led to the final process which requires almost ten successive stamping stages in order to get the right curvature.”

Stumped Stool/Side Table

The surface of these are smooth enough to look slightly like a cartoon version of a stump, which I find entirely amusing. A few of these next to a serious sofa could tone it down a bit and keep things humorous.

“These stools have a soft curve for comfort and the table’s flat surface holds a drink. At 17″ high and 21″ diameter, they’re happiest in multiples (like a forest)…”

Bernard Sofa, Chair

I don’t know why it seems that the simpler modern sofas are more expensive, but I think something like this would be worth the price.

“BERNARD has a soft, generous seat depth and the gently reclining back provides a luxurious sit. Manufactured using a solid beech frame and upholstered with dacron wrapped foam cushions, the range comes in 2 and 3 seaters, a corner unit and chair. Available with either a stainless frame or a straight leg version. The chair is also available as a more compact version with a powder coated swivel base.”

Icon Stool by Matthias Demacker

“There is no mistaking the minimalist look of Matthias Demacker’s Icon stool! The piece is made from two sheets of aluminum, bent and welded into two dramatic, triangular shapes. The segments meet at their most precarious points, but the stool remains perfectly balanced! A fantastic example of formal reductionism!

Stackable and compact, the Icon is available in red, black, white or aluminum with a removable, black cushion.”
