Seating

All Plastic Chair

Here’s something to get excited about… Jasper Morrison has taken the character of the archetypal wooden chair used in Europe for decades and updated its appearance by making it entirely out of plastic.

LBR-2 Book Bench

Do I really need to explain how this bench is worth every cent of its price tag? Seating + Books = (!). It has an angled shelf for books (why, yes, I am nerding out a little bit over that detail). That will give you a perfect place to keep your favorites, tucked away under a handy seating surface.

Herman Stackable Stool

How’s this for a stackable stool/side table? It’s got a pretty friendly price and features an oval-shaped seat on a sturdy powder-coated metal frame. That and the colors will have you considering just how many you may want to add to your own abode.

Profile Folding Chair

Wait, now, are we seeing a folding chair that looks cool? That might seem like the wrong word, but look, it’s true. Clean lines and a minimal treatment makes this folding chair just right for modernists. Too bad that it’ll take several more hundred-dollar bills to get one of these rather than the standard metal chairs, but we’re used to that sort of pricing by now (right?).

Sunday Sofa

This sofa looks like a pretty perfect place for a long nap, don’t you think? Sort of like sweatpants for your living room, it’ll keep you comfortable while signaling you give approximately zero forks what other people think of you. Just kidding, this sofa isn’t nearly that bad… but it does look that comfortable.

Painted Oak Stools

Maybe you can go chop down a tree, take off all the bark, then paint it and add a sturdy woven cotton handle, but some of us have other things to do. Plus, when these stools are less than $100 and made from sustainably harvested oak, it’s awfully hard to resist such affordable seats.

Lisboa Cork Stool

Short on seating? This guy is a smart buy that won’t break the bank. In comparison, just take a look at the Vitra Cork Stools, which I’ve always liked, priced at $490 each. And can we talk about how cork is such great material? It’s sustainable and it has a great texture that adds warmth and interest to any space.

The Abbott Stool

This three-legged stool is comfortable in its nudity. Solid construction with tenon joints, shapely legs, and a slightly beveled top combine to make it easy on the eyes; it’d be a shame for it to hide any of its parts behind paint.

Cloud High Back Sofa

Prepare yourself, for this high-backed sofa carries a high price tag. But you can understand why, can’t you, especially when considering the feather and foam-filled cushions, slim steel legs, and tall, curved shell that envelopes you whenever you sit down to rest your weary feet. You’re sure to find that this sofa provides a quiet spot for reading or watching movies (or napping), which is a valuable thing in any busy household.

Totem by Estudio Persona

So, don’t fret, this isn’t some silly art object with no use other than aesthetics. Yes, it is a totem, but you get actually get a suite of functional objects that can be stacked to form a “singular minimal structure.” Two stools and a tray rest upon a concrete base, creating a tall stack that takes up very little floor space. Disassemble and arrange the components to fit your needs.

Cottage Stools

How in the world has it taken so long for the Cottage Stools to hit our radar? The flat, rectangular tops plus the lovely joinery on the legs (see the tiny brass screws?) hit the right spot for everyday dining, or maybe even use the low stool as a side table in the living area or bedroom.

Avoa Chair

Prepare yourself, for this chair isn’t cheap. It is, however, a lesson on minimalism and autotelia. Not familiar with the term? Join the club. After you read the definition, sit and ponder the “transience and simulation” of the chair, and maybe appreciate the delicate balance between sparsity and strength.

Ready Stacking Barstool

Take a look at this stacking barstool. It’s made from powder-coated steel sled legs and a molded plywood seat and is oh-so-minimal. Not impressed? Oh, and it’s under $200. Compare that price tag with another favorite barstool and it’s a downright steal. Choose between black, grey green, or white.

SO/HO Stool

This particular step stool doesn’t look like it belongs in warehouse, thank goodness. Rather, it looks like it belongs in a home- it’s the solid oak that makes it friendly. Keep it in your kitchen to reach those upper cabinets, or place it beside your bed or favorite chair to hold books. It folds away neatly when not in use.
