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.

Woven Wire Stool

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.

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.
