Seating

Sheep by Sam Brown

These sheep might be just the thing to add a little touch of playfulness to a room.

“Born and bred on the Isle of Wight, although the Sheepskin is from New Zealand. Sheep seats make perfect city pets. There’s no need for a garden and these Sheep seats make great occasional seating with fun personalities. Perfect for adults and kids to sit on, and the child sheep can even be used as a footstool.”

Black/Ivory New Zealand sheepskin. Beech-wood legs with rubber “hooves”.

Dimensions: Adult H 64, W x D 61 cm; Child H 40, W x D 35 cm

Bench With Moveable Tray

This looks like a good choice if you need bench with storage options for miscellany.

“This exceptionally comfortable bench is perfect in an entryway, living room, or bedroom. But what makes it really special is that this bench is also a coffee table, a storage unit, and a shelf! Solid pine frame houses three drawers to conveniently store anything from gloves and scarves to DVDs, plus a roomy and decorative shelf to store smaller items within easy reach. Moveable bent tray slides horizontally or can be removed completely.”

Solid taeda pine frame, bent plywood tray. Cast-brass hardware.

60″L x 16.75″D x 19″H

Smock Chair by Patricia Urquiola

The Smock collection shows such detail and intricacy with fabric yet it has an otherwise modern and simple silhouette…if I had loads of cash, I’d probably already own this or any one of Urquiola’s other pieces, but for now I’ll have to make do by pretending I have my pick.

“patricia urquiola loves playing with textures, as you can see in her smock line of furniture. urquiola bunches up the upholstery around hoops and round frames, giving the smock line a modern look with a rich and almost antique feel.”

steel frame covered in injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam. chromed or varnished arms. sofa back cushions stuffed with goose down. underfeet in synthetic rubber.

Holey Stump

These are great. I can see them being used as stools or even as bedside tables. The little nooks could be used for a small book, a remote control, your cell phone, glasses, or any number of things that people like to keep close at night.

Scoop Stool by Turnstone

I like the idea behind this stool.

“One of the design goals for Turnstone’s Scoop Stool was to avoid competing with the architecture of a space. Inspired by a grain scoop, this casual stool is a perfect compliment to a modern home or business groupspace.”

I just discovered the design group Palau from the Netherlands, and they have some pretty inspiring work.

“Made in The Netherlands, the Wave features environmentally-friendly Kvadrat fabrics. These fabrics bear the EU’s environmental “flower” label that can only be awarded when the product’s life cycle is among the best in the market.”

Non, Rubber Chair by Komplot Design

If the comfort and credential of being in the permanent collection of the MoMA isn’t enough, I’m sure that the fact you can turn over this chair and show the credits to your friends will make the price tag a bit easier to swallow (at least in theory, right?).

‘Non has won numerous design awards and is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Straight and simple in design, the stacking chair is comfortable thanks to the rubber it’s made of and the “built-in spring bands”. The underside of the chair features interesting molded rubber movie-style credits.
The chairs be stacked together to save space. NON can be used both indoors and outdoors. The pieces are completely waterproof and can be left outdoors permanently.’
