saruyama sofa set by toshiyuki kita for moroso

This would certainly not be an impulse buy for most of us, but if you happen to have it in your budget and decorating needs, the saruyama sofa set may just be what you’re looking for. The set of three sofas was designed by Toshiyuki Kita for Moroso in 1989. Each sofa has it’s own unique style and design, and all three fit together to make a circular seating arrangement.

Made of a self-supporting frame in stress-resistant polyurethane foam at varied densities.

Citizen: Citizen/JimmyJane/Filus evening of Design Therapy

Last night I attended a great event in Los Angeles at All Purpose (a great up and coming menswear store) sponsored by Citizen:Citizen and the endlessly charming Philip Wood. Also in attendance was super talented designer Cory Ingram of the Crude Line, and the design/engineering genius Ethan Imboden behind the little steel line by JimmyJane.

It was refreshing to see all the lines in person and get to meet the minds behind the designs.

Loft Sectional

“An ultra cool design approach delivers luxurious comfort in a handsome modern sectional. The polyester bouclé upholstery has a soft pebbled texture. The pillowtop cushions and the sleek, low seat deck make for an inviting place to relax after your busy day. Sectional styling means it’s versatile enough for a small space or able to be expanded considerably. Add and subtract pieces to adapt to your modern lifestyle and the shape of your room. The bottom cushion/pillowtop fastens with Velcro, which keeps it in place and and makes it easy to remove for cleaning.

Parentesi Extension Table

This is a great extension dining table that has a mechanized self-storing leaf.

“The Parentesi Table (2002) by Luigi Ronzoni gracefully extends to seat up to 6-8 people without interrupting the design’s simple lines or resolved details. Both ends of the tabletop pull out on smooth-gliding metal tracks to make room for a self-storing butterfly extension leaf, which easily unfolds and locks into place. Like the remainder of the tabletop, the extension leaf features an apron on either side to hide interior tracks and maintain the table’s profile. Each table is produced using CAD software and CNC routers, for precision craftsmanship and performance. Made in Italy.”

Girard Table

I love the spare and simple lines of this coffee table- it’s definitely mid century, though not in any overt way. The subtle design gives it the elegance to qualify as a classic.

“The art of this coffee table is its book-matched walnut veneer tabletop, organic shape and smooth 45-degree beveled edge…the table can be positioned with either the straight or asymmetrical side toward the seating area, providing a large surface area in a relatively narrow footprint.”

Baltic birch core; plain-slice book-matched walnut veneer; cold-rolled steel tube legs; black powder coat.
