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.

Desile Folding Chair

Talk about a thin folding chair, this one by Christian Desile is less than an inch thick when closed. Maybe you like the sustainable bamboo, or maybe you’d like the Black/White Laminate ($375) which can be opened up either way so you can choose the preferred color (see pic below). Also worth mentioning is that the chair can be hung on the wall when closed as a sort of graphic wood artwork (if it’s to your taste). What’s most impressive though is that 100 chairs closed and stacked side by side takes up only 2 linear meters.

Briq Stool

A polypropylene stool might not seem like a deal of the day, but this guy has got a lot going for it. It can be used indoors or out and can be stacked to save space. If you flip it upside down, it doubles as a storage bin for newspapers/magazines or kid’s toys, or even a cooler for beer or soda when filled with ice. Or you can choose to use it as a side table. Not too shabby for a cheerful little seating option.

The Briq Stool won the prestigious FORM Design Award in 2009.

Toro Chair from Blu Dot

Olé, motherf#c!xr, indeed. Talk about a whole lot of bang for your buck, this chair from Blu Dot is one heck of a looker. A saddle leather sling in either natural or black (with accompanying white or black-stained beech frame) has a high end look with a downright affordable* price, especially if you figure in the 20% savings until November 8 (use promo code BLUDOT20 at checkout). That brings it down to $799 from the regular price of $999.
