Club Chair Pool

Whoa, bright stuff. This boxy club chair is bang on trend, isn’t it… of course, I say it’s on trend, but I don’t have the images or data to back it up, other than a few links to fashion shows that you may or may not be interested in. Nevertheless, it’s refreshing to see a nice pop of color hit the floor of a retail store, especially mid February.

Life After Corkage Bar Stool + Ottoman

Hmm. What to do with 2,500 wine and champagne corks? Make an ottoman and barstool out of them and then sell it/them for $980 (I think they’re sold as a set, but I’ve got an email out to double check). Now, who has enough corks lying around to try a DIY version of this?

Whoa, update: it’s $980 each, not sold as set.

Kola Chair

Can you believe this chair is under the $500 mark? With such a contemporary silhouette/shape, it would look at home pretty much any where. It’s a breath of fresh air to know there are modern seating options that won’t break the bank.

Also available in black.

Bookworm Cardboard Stool

Not a bad price for a stool that looks like a big pile of books, even if it is cardboard… though, do keep in mind you’ll have to pay shipping from Australia. Holds up to 200kg and comes flat-packed in a clear carry bag.

Others worth mentioning are the Gold, Soundbooster, and Log Stools.

Silhouette Bench

Okay, if you just glance at this bench quickly, it might appear a tad overly antique-ish, yet it has some modern touches, such as the high gloss lacquer and the super flat seat. Now, at £525, it’s not really at a bargain-basement price, but if you put it side by side with the New Antiques Arm Chair for £1,495.00 by Marcel Wanders (see below), it seems like one hell of a deal. There’s also a Silhouette Chair (£250) if you are interested, though it seems to be out of stock at the moment.

Endy Stool

Love, love, love this stool. The color coded ends of timber are emphasized in the design of this stool, thereby “preserving a hint of the origins of the wood” and giving us an altogether colorful little seating option.

Shipping seems to run around $29.00, fyi.

Oak, ash, maple, mahogany, cherry.
H: 40cm, Ø: 32cm.

Steel Pipe Chair

No doubt you’re somewhat familiar with MUJI’s range of office furniture (and if you aren’t, it would do you well to take a gander), but you might be interested to know that the Steel Pipe Chair is on sale now from $630 to $479… not too bad for a possible future classic. The chair’s design is based on the original Bauhaus design and made in Germany by Thonet GmbH.

reg. $630.00, $479.95 Sale ($431.95 Members)

Latex Roll Pouf

Do you want to guess what product is made from this latex, thereby leaving tons of it for upcycling into a pouf? Is it construction fencing? Rubber bouncy balls? Waste from the production of shoe insoles? Right you are, shoe insoles it is. Angela Mensi, Cristina Merlo and Ingrid Taro are three designers making objects and furniture out of waste materials, and based on this under-$100 colorful pouf, I’d say they’re starting out right.

Day Bed One

I did a little overview of Another Country back in November, but this daybed is worth a highlight on its own. You can buy it with or without the mattress and bolsters, and it should be noted that without the mattress it could double as a generous coffee table. With the buttoned mattress, it’s a lovely spot for a nap or an extra overnight guest (it’s the size of a standard single bed).

To see more, visit Another Country.

Copine Dining Chair

Hmm, $219 seems awfully affordable for a dining chair, especially considering there’s a nice balance of wood and steel. Made to pair with the Copine Dining Table ($799), the chair is available in American walnut or oak.

The 244 Nest Chair by Autoban

Recently on a trip to Istanbul, I stayed at the The House Hotel in Nişantaşı. I didn’t really take a lot of design notes (I was on vacation, after all), but it was pretty much impossible not to ‘ooo’ and ‘ahh’ over Autoban’s furniture and interior design. I’d seen this Nest chair in person before at trade shows, but it wasn’t until I saw it in the main area of the House Hotel did I fully appreciate how much of a statement piece it is.

Sure, it’s got the ‘statement piece’ price, but the chair acts as a sort of room on its own, mimicking the traditional dome chair shape, yet allowing light and air through the slats of the back and sides. It’s really an excellent choice for a large room that needs a pair of high backed armchairs to designate a seating area. Also, Contemporist has some good overview of photos of the hotel if you’re curious, or you can take a look via the website of The House Hotel in Nişantaşı.

Runda Samsas Sofa

Dare I say that Carl Malmsten’s furniture is becoming trendy again? (Gasp.) I halfway despair when certain classic items become popular, because usually those cherished-from-afar pieces start to spread throughout every magazine and blog almost to the point that they lose some of their appeal. Now, in the case of this sofa, I have my fingers crossed that won’t happen. It’s just too elegant and timeless to succumb to that particular fate.

Respite by Tirsh Hunter

Ran across this cast concrete stool/side table while on Svpply yesterday. Considering the design and actual heft, I’d say $375 isn’t too bad of a deal. In fact, if I saw this in a high-design storefront, I would probably guess a much higher price tag. It can go outside in a patio or garden or be just at home next to a sofa.
