Seating

Toy Armchair

Not such a bad price for an indoor/outdoor chair- I especially like the block-like angles.

“Inspired by the aesthetic of comics from the 1940s, Philippe Starck’s Toy Armchair (1999) strikes a balance between work and play, sophistication and childlike fantasy. Molded of a single piece of polypropylene, the Armchair is suitable indoors or out, for dining and lounge areas. Stackable up to 14 high for convenient storage, the Toy Armchair has a drainage hole to avoid seat puddles in rainy weather. Made in Italy.”

Green, Orange, or White.
Polypropylene.

H 30.5″ W 24″ D 22.5″ (Seat H 17″ Arm H 25″)

Map Chair

If you’ve got a lot of time on your hands, you might consider taking up a hobby, let’s say something like covering a chair with tiny pieces of a map. Or, if you don’t have the time you could of course buy this one. It’s slightly pricey, but considering that someone did this by hand, and that you’re paying for convenience, it’s not as bad as it could be.

“The chair shown here is hand covered in a vintage edition map of the east London area. The map is cut into small squares using the printed grid lines & then joined back together with the Thames river flowing across the seat & then across the back of the chair. This particular chair is in stock & ready to ship but is also available made to order with an location map you wish. It is fully glazed in a durable, wipe clean, child safe lacquer.”

401 Loveseat

This has got to be the best deal around on a sofa. Now mind you, the price is so low, you may want to investigate the upholstery by asking for a swatch. But, if you’re on a tight budget and need something to sit on for a small space, this may be just what you’re looking for.

Tevere Chair by Hida

Man, this chair costs a pretty penny, but there’s something very nice about the simplicity of materials and form.

“The Hida Tevere Chair provides comfortable seating in a design that transforms natural material into a sturdy, contemporary form. The Tevere Chair features Sugi wood, a tree native to Japan that provides a lightweight, but strong, construction material.”

Hugo Day Bed

Obviously this is really close to the Daybed designed by Mies Van Der Rohe, however it’s not a copy because the head pillow is slightly different, which is why it gets away with just being called “inspired” by Mies. I’m mostly posting it because I was really impressed by the low price tag.

Mid-Century Sofa

Here’s a nice little economical sofa that can be converted to a twin size bed. The conversion isn’t done quickly as the back support needs to be unscrewed, but it is a dual function piece none the less.

In House Low Chair

Check out the subtle crook of the legs and the way the leather wraps around the frame- it’s little details like those that make me understand the price tag. Plus, I like how it looks hefty.

“…low slung lounge with double-back leather seat + back on walnut or ash frame.”

Steelwood Chair, Magis

This chair sounds like it’s been through the wringer a few times, but the end result does not disappoint. It’s easy to appreciate how the curving steel plate and solid beech provide a rich contrast- they give detail to an otherwise simple form.

“The Steelwood chair is a radical assemblage of two traditional materials: steel and wood. Unlike its plastic siblings, it is aimed to become more delicate through time, acquiring a patina over uses and years. The steel forming process required deep technological research due to the unique and intricate form. It led to the final process which requires almost ten successive stamping stages in order to get the right curvature.”

Bernard Sofa, Chair

I don’t know why it seems that the simpler modern sofas are more expensive, but I think something like this would be worth the price.

“BERNARD has a soft, generous seat depth and the gently reclining back provides a luxurious sit. Manufactured using a solid beech frame and upholstered with dacron wrapped foam cushions, the range comes in 2 and 3 seaters, a corner unit and chair. Available with either a stainless frame or a straight leg version. The chair is also available as a more compact version with a powder coated swivel base.”

Icon Stool by Matthias Demacker

“There is no mistaking the minimalist look of Matthias Demacker’s Icon stool! The piece is made from two sheets of aluminum, bent and welded into two dramatic, triangular shapes. The segments meet at their most precarious points, but the stool remains perfectly balanced! A fantastic example of formal reductionism!

Stackable and compact, the Icon is available in red, black, white or aluminum with a removable, black cushion.”
