You are probably familiar with the regular 4 legged Ant Chair, but take a look at the 3 leg version. I think the shape of the chair looks a little more interesting with only 3 legs to balance on, and considering it’s slightly less expensive than its sibling, this guy might just be the one to go for.

Originally commissioned for the Design Museum Tank, Gitta Gschwendtner created the Bag Stool as a comment on material consumption. There’s an outdoor concrete version (143 lbs.) that comes with a fixation system and an indoor version made from a concrete and wood fiber mixture (66lbs.).

I’d say this is a pretty good price for a modern stool, no? At 27″ high, it’s the right height for a high-ish counter or bar area and powder-coated steel means it can take a beating.

The outlines of the three chairs that inspired the design of this chair weren’t immediately apparent to me, and it was only after noticing such that I began to see it in a non-alien-like way. Seeing that owning a 7 Chair by Arne Jacobsen ($466), a Tulip Armchair by Eero Saarinen ($1,390), and an Eiffel Chair designed by Charles Eames ($249) will run you approximately 2 grand, this chair’s price could be considered a steal.

Tanya Aguiniga transforms the surface of cold metal folding chairs into thick upholstered seating with hand-wrought felt. Each are made to order, so expect a 2-4 week wait.

I’ve had my eye on this loveseat for a while now, and though I’ve no room for it, I keep imagining just where it would go. Especially after seeing it with what looks to be the Original Windsor Dining Table (shown below), there seems no better choice for a smaller eating area.

A stool, table and serving tray all in one. The side arms might look like they’re just handles, but they can also act as holders for cups or wineglasses. Plus, these stools are safe for outdoors, so you can think about whether one or two would work on your patio or deck.
Included in the permanent collection of Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

How often do you think of barstools as comfortable? Designers Harry & Camilla chose an industrial plastic to form a curved seat that has flex and give, and although I’m not sure how much ‘spring’ there is, it’s sure looks more comfortable than other barstools.

You’ll have to allow me some leeway here, as this ottoman isn’t technically available for purchase online, but it’s so colorful that I can’t really help it. Specially knitted by Donna Wilson, this Chesterfield inspired ottoman is a lovely example of how a traditional piece can be turned on its head simply by use of fabric and color. And don’t worry, if you’re not the sort to appreciate the rainbow-esque color scheme shown above, there’s 4 other different colour ways available.

Seeing that we’re all usually up for saving some money, you might be interested to know that DWR is having their annual sale on upholstery and rugs. A quick peruse through their offerings and I kept getting caught on the Pelican Chair (1940). Curves and comfort are words that spring to mind, and of course, you just can’t go wrong with a piece designed by the architect and designer Finn Juhl. While his furniture is certainly in the ‘investment piece’ price range, you can possibly save a good chunk of change from now until the end of August.
And, if the Pelican Chair isn’t quite your cup of tea, there’s several other iconic pieces to set your sights on. Check it out: 15% off at DWR’s Upholstery and Rug Sale.
“A chair is not just a product of decorative art in a space, it is a form and a space in itself.” -Finn Juhl

What do we have here? Felt, stainless steel, and accordion-like sides… hmm. Inspired by tailored attire, the sides of this chair are threaded together with rope, presumably allowing for some adjustment. The idea of felt being transformed from flat 2D surface to a 3D form is nothing new, yet this chair utilizes elements of fashion to make an impressively stitched and very ‘this season’ seating option.

So, these green chairs stood out quite a bit when I ran across this photo the other day and habit proved unavoidable. A quick lookup to see if my memory served correct and surprise, surprise they weren’t quite the chairs (see #1) I thought they were. Now, onto the questions regarding the two chairs on the right:
a) which one do you think was made first?
b) which one costs less?
c) which one has removable legs?
Do you care? Maybe? Answers below.

You know that feeling you get when you see someone really cute and you can’t get them out of your head for days, even weeks? That’s what’s happened with me and Studio Dunn’s Barrington Chair. Yes, I’m crushing on a chair. I wrote a haiku about it…
