Starck BaObab Desk

Sometimes I think Starck’s work is too ‘blobby’ but in this case I think it really works. Just get this desk, some Molo soft walls and some freeze dried ice cream and you’re all set to work in the 22nd century.

Available in: white, light grey, light yellow, light green, and aqua (shown).

Set of 10 Low Trunk Tables

Yes, the price does seem more on the high side of what seems reasonable for a few side tables, but considering there are 10 of them, each one sporting different shades of neutral enamel tops, it doesn’t seem as bad..maybe because each one (if sold separately) would be $175.

“Driftwood spread across the shore is the impetus behind this unique design. The ultimate in modern nature, these low tables are fully functional, as they are fastened with metal and enamel tops. An inspired way to redefine and re-use earth’s creations. Natural.”

From 7 3/4″ to 15 3/4″.

Round Collection – Lounge Chair 469

The metal mesh used for the body of this chair is so visually light it almost appears to be made from fabric netting. It’s almost a shame to categorize it as an outdoor piece (‘almost’ because I’m not complaining).

“The Round Collection designed by Christope Pillet is both simple and elegant with a flowing design sure to have timeless appeal. The Lounge Chair features a steel frame with a seat made of pre-galvanised metal sheet. All Emu products from the Advanced Collection come with a 5 year warranty.”

Available in your choice of light grey, red, warm grey and white.

36.2″ x 33.8″ x 32.7″ height

Side Chair 465 also available for $285.00. (24.4″ x 22.4″ x 31.9″ height)

Tepee (from DWR)

A Tepee? Really?…Uh, okay, I guess if you’ve got the money, why not have the perfect space to get away and be by yourself, or take your friends/family and tell stories or something?

“For adventurers of all ages, the classic Tepee (2008) is a simple solution for spending time outdoors with minimal impact on the surrounding landscape. This one was crafted for DWR Tools for Living by Dave Ellis…We chose his work because of his quality materials and construction that provides proper ventilation, flame resistance and reinforced stress points. What’s also unique about this design is the sewn-in floor liner that allows proper air flow, while ensuring that nothing accidentally leaves or enters the Tepee…The exterior canvas is tightly woven, preshrunk 100% cotton Army Duck that’s finished with a Sunforger baked-in process to make the canvas mildew resistant and water repellent. Campfire songs and ghost stories not included.”
