Upcycle Ottoman

How do you feel about feed bags as upholstery? It sounds sort of awful (doesn’t it?) but I actually like the way these ottomans look.

The Upcycle Ottoman is upholstered using a supply of surplus jute bags previously used to transport organic coffee beans. The durable bags, which would otherwise be thrown away, have been repurposed to make an original accent piece. The jute features screen-printed stencils and logos which identified the original goods, making each ottoman completely unique. Bench-Made in Canada.

18d x 18w x 16h (inches)

Confluences by Philippe Nigro

I love the look of this so so much (such fun!).

How can one design a settee which satisfies the requirements of the majority of users? Different people have different physiognomies. And then there is the subjectivity of taste. CONFLUENCES is a ‘reconciliatory’ settee, since it draws its inspiration from such differences. CONFLUENCES attempts to supply an answer to an ergonomic problem, and in this way becomes a playground for plastic forms and colours in many shade variations. -Ligne Roset

Shadow Chair

This chair at first appears to balance only on its front legs. Clever.

A chair that integrates shadow into its structure…At first glance it is a simple chair that seems to defy gravity by standing upright while only having two front legs, but on closer inspection the shadow is part of the chair and made from steel, which is attached to a metal frame built inside the chair. Available in a number of finishes please contact us for more information

Bate-Papo and Mocho Stool

These two entirely intriguing stools are part of MoMA Design Store’s new Destination Brazil collection.

Bate-Papo Stool, $495.00 ($445.50 Members),
Buy it here.

Inspired by stools used in the Brazilian countryside, designer Flavia Pagotti Silva created this contemporary seat. In Portuguese, “bate-papo” refers to an informal conversation between friends. This low, comfortable stool, made of four plywood disks attached to the chair’s frame through ball joints is meant to be used casually and as additional seating in informal settings. Made of plywood, ball joints, recycled rubber, and metal tubing. Size: 14h x 14l x 14″w

Mocho Stool, $550.00 ($495.00 Members), Buy it here.

Designer Sergio Rodrigues favors working with traditional materials like leather, wood, and cane splints in his product designs. The Mocho Stool, an update on the traditional milkmaid’s stool used throughout Brazil, is made of a solid hardwood frame, a single-lathed hollowed seat, and three lathed legs. A handle is incorporated into the design of the stool’s seat, making it easy to transport from place to place. Made of eucalyptus wood.
Size: 15.75h x 17.75″diam.

GJ Chair

Whoa, check this chair out. If you’re considering a lounge chair in a major-purchase sort of way, you might consider this one for it’s relative rarity.

Originally designed in 1963, just 300 pieces were made due to the complexity of the chair’s design. Just a few of the originals exist today. One is in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. In keeping with Jalk’s intentions, the chair and tables are reproduced in their original materials, teak and Oregon pine as well as black-stained ash. Two pieces of wood are moulded and conjoined in this daring design, which won Britain’s Daily Mail Design Competition in 1963.

Designer: Grete Jalk
Lounge chair in moulded plywood.
Available in Oregon pine, teak or black stained ash.

Sheffield Sofa

Hmm, charismatically caramel or not, the price is not too outrageous on this sofa.

Charismatic in contemporary caramel, fluid in silhouette, these modern furniture supermodels are naturally poised for comfortable seating. Tantalizingly textural, too, in 55% polyester/ 45% linen. We also selected them for our unique collection because of their environmentally-sensitive construction including a durable, hardwood maple laminate frame and legs and seat cushions that have been filled with a recyclable virgin polyester fiber.

80″L X 32″H X 32″D.

Bardolino Lounge Chair

With credentials to show weather-worthiness, this lounge chair would be an excellent candidate for being an indoor/outdoor chair (as in, would look just fine as an indoor chair until the weather’s nice, then pull it outside).

The indoor/outdoor Bardolino Collection has lines that echo the forms of classic mid-century European furniture, but its materials are squarely in the new millennium…They’re made from a powder-coated aluminum frame that’s wrapped in WaProLace® – a polyethylene fiber that has been specially tested to maintain its color and resist corrosion from chlorine, salt water or other outdoor elements. Nontoxic and 100% recyclable, WaProLace is easy to maintain and can withstand temperatures from -94°f to 176°f. The Lounge Chair is distinguished by a deliberately low seat and slightly inclined back.

bottegaMontana Stools

The left walnut stool has a humble name yet is reminiscent of the Eames Time Life Stools (it follows that the price makes a little more sense when noting the cost of the Eames Stools). Also notable is their other colorful stools, some of which are outdoor friendly (thanks Jake!).

Relief Chair

Hmm, while I can think of a few heavy-hitters that I’d rather spend 4 G’s on, I can pretty much guarantee that none of them are eco-friendly. Plus, the pattern on this chair made from stacking felt pieces is superb and gives a very luxe look.

The Relief Chair remasters the art of sculpting, using digital fabrication and solid, renewable materials. Materials commonly associated with seating – upholstery, foam products and toxic finishes – are all supplanted with thick sheets of natural wool felt, adhered with non-toxic, water-based adhesives. The precision-cut contours of each piece of felt are aggregated into sinuous yet comfortable forms. The cascading edges create an integral pattern with both a visual and tactile effect.

manufacture: Mickus Projects, Brooklyn, NY
materials: Industrial wool felt, stainless steel, water-based adhesive
dimensions: 36.5″ tall x 32″ wide x 24″ deep
