Seating

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.

This is made out of the same material that’s used in life rafts, so you’ve got some degree of comfort in knowing that it will last a bit longer than perhaps other inflatable furniture you might be familiar with…in any case, it’s a great option for outdoors (if you don’t get a lot of wind, that is).

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.

This little stool will add some subtle texture and a nice metallic sheen to a furniture grouping.

Wire can be stronger when woven together than you can imagine! Another way to keep wire from the landfill, and to refashion it in a stylish piece of furniture – a stool or a side table for books. A unique accent that will last a lifetime. Indoor use suggested. This product is made using metal that is kept out of landfills. Each piece is unique.

Miami Sofa

This reminds me of a much more expensive design but I can’t quite put my finger on which one. For the price, it’s an interesting shape and design, yet sadly it sports a rather unfortunate fabric.
(update: it was the Moel sofa by Ligne Roset that I was thinking of…thanks to Edgar for figuring that out.)

Sink down into this plush off white sofa and you may find yourself languishing in your contemporary living room longer than you ever imagined. The ribbed stitching adds visual interest, texture and an aura of Deco glam. Don’t forget the matching chair! Once again, modern design, style and comfort help you create your little bit of heaven on Earth. Padded solid wood frame. Fabric, in easy-care vinyl.

Globus

This may be the craziest thing I’ve seen all day. But, if you like the idea of working in a mobile pod then the Globus is for you.

Globus is a compact personal mobile workstation that offers flexibility thanks to it’s rotating chair, the pull out table top and castors. You can work with or without a notebook. You can work where ever you want. You move your flexible workstation to a place where you want to be, open it and work. Flexible and functional, Globus can be used in the office but also at home. A sophisticated work station demonstrating a truly appealing example of innovative design.

Conco Lounge Chair by Michiel van der Kley

Look! It’s a poem about a chair:

Could a chair be as streamlined as the body of an aeroplane? A body that looks rounded, similar to a boulder being eroded for a long time in the sea before it reaches its ultimate shape. The base strengthens the lightness of the design by its shape. The knot is an aesthetical feature but also a technical detail. On the one side a point where all the curved lines meet and on the other side a place where the fabric can be held together.

Harvest Table

The room settings above perfectly illustrate how combining two distinct styles can add interest and character to a home…I love the Shaker style table paired with the more industrial Navy Side Chair or the mid century Saarinen Tulip™ Stools.

This table has a sturdy and symmetrical form that’s defined by its functionality. Simple and austere, two drop leaves increase or decrease the footprint depending on immediate needs. Wooden pegs fold out to support the leaves when they’re raised and act as stoppers when the leaves are folded down. The modern maxim that form follows function was phrased by the Shakers as, “beauty rests on utility,” which is an expression found in Shaker literature. This reference to beauty does not imply ornament or decoration, both of which the Shakers avoided for fear of encouraging the sin of pride. Rather, this beauty is inherent to a useful object, and “that which has in itself the highest use possesses the greatest beauty.”

Leather Chaise Chair

The vintage look of this leather chaise is slightly reminiscent of a baseball glove…not a bad thing, I might add.

Why be a coach potato when you can be a chaise frittata? With a stainless steel frame and quilted leather seat inspired by the 1950s Barcelona chair, this wonderful chaise has been pre-conditioned to achieve an invitingly worn, vintage look.
