Coleman Camp Stool

We’ve featured the Colman Stool by Greta de Parry before, but this Coleman Camp Stool comes in an adjustable 18-24″ height with a lower price point. So, just in case you’re looking for a smaller side table/stool, this one could be a good option, especially as the solid steel base and concrete top (several colors available) make it appropriate for indoor or outdoor use.

Sacrificial Chair by Thing Industries

You might as well succumb to the bad habit of shedding clothing onto furniture. It just takes so much extra effort to put them away. Imagine that last sentence said in a whiney voice, and know that I admit to a little laziness now and then. So, go ahead and buy the Sacrificial Chair by Thing Industries why don’t you, and see the pile of barely-used and needs-to-be-cleaned clothes pile on up into a spectacular mess of colors and textures. You could even call it an objet d’art if you want to sound pretentious.

Palo Corner Sofa Right Blue

Hmm, here’s something new on the radar. Not only does this sectional sofa possess the clean lines and modern form that we’re all after, it also can be rearranged as you see fit. Cushions and armrests may be moved (with the struts) to create different combinations. So, maybe you’ll get the Palo Corner Sofa Right in Blue (shown above), or maybe you prefer the smaller Two Seater in Grey (below) with the Ottoman to keep it company. Either way, there’s a certain satisfaction knowing you can mix things up in the future by adding or moving certain pieces around to fit your space.

Coleman Stool

Barstools can be tricky. The truly impressive ones seem to be quite expensive, and the decent ones aren’t cheap. So, what do you do? You keep your eyes out for certain designs that are worth spending a tiny bit more than you want. We’ll count the Coleman Stool as one of those, as it has thin, geometric solid steel legs with a handmade concrete seat. It’s suitable for indoors or outside, and there several good color options- black or white for the base and a seven seat colors.

Stool 7 from STANDSEVEN

Two legs balanced with a looped sort of kickstand creates this visual trick of a barstool from STANDSEVEN and architect/designer David Adjaye OBE. It’s made from sustainable, recycled metals and, if you need further temptation, there’s an ethical intention thrown in as well. Each stool pays for one Ebola response kit for a family unit in Sierra Leone. You read that right, you can own this marvelous barstool and brag about helping end Ebola. That’s a win/win situation right there. (You can also donate directly to Doctors Without Borders or UNICEF.)

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.

Maybe it goes in a hallway (don’t even dare to think about putting shoes on it) or maybe it lives at the end of the bed. Either way, it’s a dual-function piece that would fit into any minimal/modern interior with ease. There’s also the LBR-1, a smaller nightstand/stool size that will be your best friend. I might have to post that separately just so it gets the attention it deserves.

Mater Space Stool

More lovely furniture on sale? Yes, please. With ever-so-thin legs, these handcrafted stools are sort of stunning. We first posted these stools back in 2010, and, of course, they need some updating in the pricing field. However, do keep in mind they’re currently on sale, so you will save a tiny bit should you choose to splurge for your bar or countertop area. The Space Stools are crafted from premium oak (FSC certified) with sustainable and socially responsible methods. Be sure to check out the Aluminum version too, as it has more of a futuristic feel ($950 $760).

CH28 vs. Lars Lounge Chair

When Room&Board released their new Lars Lounge Chair, I thought that maybe I had seen it somewhere before. Of course, it borrows heavily from a handful of classic Mid-20th century designs, and, in this particular case, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There’s lots of mid century lounge chairs that hit a pretty perfect note of top-notch design and comfort, and often you can find a pair for a decent price (i.e. less than $1k) if you scour eBay and/or resale shops. There’s also a plethora of dodgy manufacturers that copy classic designs outright, and that’s not cool (or so most people think, myself included) because it’s pretty much stealing someone’s work.

The Captain Chair

Here’s something snazzy and new from Bend Goods. It’s called The Captain Chair, and it’s currently available in gold and white, though the product images show a bold red that’s sure to follow. Add the optional cushions for a softer seat or keep it bare to show off the grid work.

Stackable Stool/Table by Atelier de Troupe

A stackable stool is a pretty smart buy, as you’ll not be caught without extra seating if a whole load of friends stop by (we all know how popular you are). Plus, this stackable stool by Atelier de Troupe could easily double as a side table in the living area or bedroom. Made of an iron base and a waxed alder wood seat, it’s a safe bet you’ll not regret adding a few of these, as they’ll last a very long time.

Slowood Studios Modernist Collection

What the what(!). If you’re not impressed with the subtle colors of this stool, side, and coffee table, then we can’t be friends. Steel frames with tonal powder coated panels combine to create these versatile little surfaces from Slowood Studios and Hawkins New York. With their smaller silhouettes, they can easily fit in beside a sofa or bed, or nestle alongside a favorite reading chair. Choose between three different sizes and blue, pink, or peach color ways.

Pal Barstools

Well, aren’t these a sight for sore wallets? At $199 for the ash, grey, yellow or black barstool, and even less at $149 for the smaller stool, the Pal collection over at Hem hits the right price point. They’re easy to assemble, lightweight, and sturdy. Plus, for a fun fact, the curved legs were inspired by skateboard-making techniques. The circular metal bracket adds strength as well as a spot to rest your feet.

Loveseat Shift by Margaux Keller

I know you’re in the thick of things, picking out holiday gifts in these last days of the non-rush shipping window, but let’s take a break and look at this Loveseat Shift by Margaux Keller. It’s not a traditional upholstered two-person seat, instead, the smaller stool has been modified to create a potential perch for two. The size is entirely suitable as a side table or extra seat, and the clever spliced shape will add a little bit of humor to an interior.

Anita Johansen Day Bed

I know, I know, you’re in full gift-getting mode and have little interest in improving your home’s seating options, but just take a moment to look at this daybed. Its simple ash frame nods to Nordic construction while the thin ribbing of the seat cushion adds a big dose of modernism. The size would easily fit in a hallway, conversation area, or bedroom and its quiet sophistication is friendly rather than intimidating. Designed by Anita Johansen, the day bed is available in a Dark Black with black leather or a lighter, natural ash with grey wool.
