Svedese Fortune Chair

I’m not sure what type of Swedish fortune shall befall you if you should happen to purchase this chair, but if you buy 6 of them, you can save 15%, and if you order by September 16 you’ll also get free shipping, so that’s a sort of fortune, isn’t it?

The Fratelli Tominaga, designers of our Coco Chair, discovered the 40-year-old prototype for the Svedese Chair (pronounced svee-day-see) in the kitchen of a home in Udine, Italy. Still in fine condition, the chair appeared to be Swedish in origin but was constructed in Italy, although the brothers were never able to find a record of the designer. The Tominagas have brought the Svedese Chair back into production, maintaining the solid hardwood frame, the seat back’s distilled folk form and updating the upholstery in elegant, hardworking Danish wool. The result is a mid-century design reimagined for the 21st-century. Assembly required.

Kar Chair (Slices)

Man, at first glance it looked like it was $150 per chair (which would be way too good to be true); it takes around 5 slices to make a full-sized seat, so that makes it around $750 per chair. Darn it.

This innovative line of furniture allows you to endlessly mix and match towards a design of any color and size. Each “slice” clicks into one another and can support up to 300 pounds of weight. The material, Arpro, is lightweight and weatherproof.

Made of Arpro (expanded polypropylene)
Height ( 33″), Width ( 7″), Depth ( 32″)

Tam Tam Stools

The Tam Tam Stool is pretty much a classic, and at $48 you can afford to splurge on a few if the mood strikes you.

Originally introduced by designer Henry Massonnet in 1968, this minimal stool was an instant hit because of its versatility, comfort, ease to carry and snap together. An iconic photo of the very iconic Brigitte Bardot on a Tam Tam elevated the stool to cult accessory. Today, the Tam Tam is made in the same French factory using the same mold that gave rise to the original version. Collect all colors, or mix candy brights with futuristic metallics. Or punch up a room with the graphic silhouette of a single stool in a contrasting color. Tam Tam is terrific.

Mademoiselle Rocking Chair

Truly one of the more elegant and interesting rocking chairs, this design by Ilmari Tapiovaara is a testament to how traditional furniture can be updated and improved upon.

Tapiovaara designed the Mademoiselle in 1956 as a comfortable refinement of the traditional chairs found in many Scandinavian homes at that time. The Rocker’s spindles and plank seat echo early American Windsor chairs, and even Shaker chairs, but with a unique sculptural form. Rather than using four stretchers to support the legs, Tapiovaara designed a different solution: When the Rocker is seen from the side, a composition of triangles appears that’s both functional and aesthetically unique. Tapiovaara gave the chair an extra-deep rock by extending the back rails.
