Alto Rocker by monte

Seems like more and more choices for the modern nursery are cropping up, and this rocker is one of the best options I’ve seen for seating (and the price isn’t too terrible either).

The alto rocker’s distinguishing features are its soothing and gentle rock and its tailored stitching. Similar in comfort, proportions and craftsmanship to the luca glider, the alto rocker also includes a removable lumbar pillow for extra support.
The longevity of the alto rocker’s soft and durable fabric and the handcrafted quality of the dark brown solid maple rocker base will bring your rocker from the nursery to any other room in the home.

Mr. Impossible Chair and Table #28

This Mr. Impossible chair is destined to become an iconic piece; its shape and comfort takes the humble plastic material into an elevated design form. Also, the other items pictured in the room view are worth a mention: the ribbed aluminum Table #28 is surprisingly versatile as its angular form provides shelves and can be used indoors or out, the Parametre™ AccordiOn Screen would be perfect for a room divider as shown, and the String 10 Light is still (and perhaps will always be) such a stellar choice for accent lighting.

An inviting, durable, and comfortable chair, Mr. Impossible combines sophisticated design with advanced plastic processing. The transparent structure and the translucent colored seat are seamlessly welded together. Made by Kartell of polycarbonate.

Size: 32.5h x 21.5w x 16″d; Seat: 19″h

Magnolia Lounge Chair

This chair subtly evokes a Halloween feeling for me, probably mainly due to the web-like base.

In his design for the Magnolia, Jacco Bregonje combines the best of two worlds: design and architecture. The organic shell seat is fully foam-filled and provides fantastic comfort. The metal base echoes the mathematic construction of the organic shape of the seat. The Magnolia is a beautiful piece of furniture whatever way you look at it an interplay between empty and full, hard and soft. A unique armchair that perfectly fits into the celebrated Artifort collection. A real eyecatcher for reception areas or the home.

Cake ottoman

Do you ever wish that a store would say, “Hey, why not pick something out for free, we’re feeling generous today…”? Or that you’d happen upon something in a thrift store that usually costs an insane amount and it would have a price tag of $120? I’m feeling that way about this big (huge) ottoman today.

The Cake ottoman is a great accent piece for any room. Change its personality by simply changing your choice of fabric. There are numerous fabric and leather options from which to choose.

Piazza Sofa

Check out this low, slouchy, deep sofa. It looks quite comfortable and in a pinch it could easily double as a sleeping spot too.

Long, lean, super deep unicushion for hanging out low to the floor. For tapas low at the coffee table. For slouching with the lights low, the volume high. For laying low…off with the back cushion and two can nap. The price for such comfort? Amazingly low considering its high-end nature: Euro sleek in casual slubby grey linen with an air (or is that heir?) of the Hamptons about it.

Certified sustainable, kiln-dried hardwood frame
Seat cushion is soy-based polyfoam and down blend

Modern Sofa

I think the name of this sofa is actually ‘Modern’, which sums up the silhouette even if it is a little unimaginative. Plus, the price is reasonable (in that it isn’t above the $3000 mark).

Our Hardwood Frame is hand built using the finest “Kiln Dried” Alder for maximum strength and resistance to warping and cracking. All corners and arms have extra reinforcement for added strength. Our frames feature a lifetime warranty against breakage or cracking to the original purchaser under normal household usage.

We use heavy 8 gauge sinuous seat springs on most styles. Our springs system is attached using Teflon coated clips to resist noise.

Gamper Bentwood Chairs

Made from tradtional bentwood components, these creative takes on the classic chair are something to see (and perhaps collect as funds permit?).

Martino [Gamper] studied sculpture and product design at the University of Applied Art in Vienna. He went on to do a Masters at the Royal College which he completed in 2000. His work is widely exhibited and he recently won the Wallpaper Magazine ‘Best Alchemist’ award in 2008. Behind each of his pieces is a story involving materials, techniques, people and places. He nurtures an interest in unwanted and disparate objects and by reworking furniture, which he finds on the streets, he creates mismatched families of objects.
Martino has travelled to the old Thonet factory in Croatia to see the bentwood components which he will use in his own inimitable and unexpected way. Three styles are available.

Cherish Chair

I’ve never felt all that excited about the color yellow, yet on this chair and a few other recent posts (like this lamp and the embroidery on this bedding) it seems to be growing on me…it just might be a great color accent for your otherwise monochrome room (if you have one, that is).

Reminiscent of a cherished design from the past, this solid timber chair displays a pared down silhouette – a perfect complement for today’s contemporary settings. Available in yellow lacquer.
