Cappellini extra sofa series by fabien baron

Well known fashion photographer Fabien Baron has ventured into the realm of interior design with his sofa series for Cappellini with the same aplomb and sense of style with which he approaches all his work.

“consisting of an armchair and a series of sofas, benches, poufs and cushions, the extra sofa series maintains baron’s simple, yet stylish block design. these solid seating components are constructed of a satined stainless steel base with white nylon feet supporting a sturdy plywood and solid poplar frame with horse hair, coconut fiber, cotton wool and polyurethane foam padded upholstery and a fixed external cover available in a choice of colorful cappellini fabrics or leathers. a rectangular and a square cushion are also available.”

Cabana Sectional

This is the perfect sectional- very clean lines and an unscary price tag (considering all modern sectionals seem to be about $2000 more than a regular person can afford). Pillows are sold separately, so if you’re not so fond of stripes, don’t worry.

“Clean uni-height backs/arms angle deep to comfort. Overscale pieces work small spaces solo, or lofts in combination…Classic textured cotton in go-with-everything putty, double-needle stitched at the seams. Barely there T-legs in solid aluminum.”

• Kiln-dried hardwood frame benchmade in USA
• Sinuous wire spring suspension; foam cushioning

Ripples Bench

This bench takes advantage of five different layers of wood- an engaging design that will no doubt be at home among other classics in years to come.

“To create his Ripples Collection (2003), Toyo Ito was inspired by the appearance of concentric circles spreading across the surface of water that’s been disturbed by a thrown pebble…Created with five layers of different woods – walnut, mahogany, cherry, oak and ash – Ripples is created by pressing together 5mm-thick layers of each wood…Due to the natural variations in the grain of these woods, every Ripples Bench is unique.”

Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair

I absolutely love this chair. We ended up getting ours off of ebay, but if you’re not the patient type that will wait forever until one turns up for bidding, there are several stores that offer a brand new one in exchange for a chunk of change.

“Aluminum Group chairs were originally developed in 1958 as a special project by Charles and Ray Eames for a private residence being designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard. With the addition of plush, 2-inch thick upholstered seat cushions, the Soft Pad Group chairs retain the style of the earlier chairs and enhance long-term comfort.”

Neo Two-Seater Sofa

Save 15% on some great upholstery items from DWR through January 29…($400 savings on this particular one.)

“The frame is made by hand and draws on techniques Bendtsen learned from
his father, who also designed and built furniture. The foam seat
cushions he uses are sourced from Italy because he hasn’t found any
others that offer his ideal mix of firm support and comfort. And the
removable cushion covers, while not a flashy feature, are all about
maximizing Neo’s functionality as an easy-to-live-with and
easy-to-clean seating collection.”

antibodi collection by patricia urquiola

Patricia Urquiola is one of todays most prolific designers of beautiful, thought-provoking design. The collective body of her work is both cohesive yet disparate enough to not be predictable.

The Antibody is available with flat seats or, in what really makes this line stand out, with raised flaps or “flowers” of material.

Parcel Sofa

Whoa, this sofa used to be $3000, now it’s at $1000…talk about a sale.

…the Parcel Collection (2006) expresses the designers’ belief that our furniture should reflect a state of casualness, relaxation and rejuvenation…Bernett and Dodziuk designed the Parcel Sofa to be roomy enough to stretch out on, with deep seats that encourage nesting, even for the tallest user. The Sofa has a slightly angled back and wide soft armrests. Place the Ottoman snuggly against either the Sofa or Chair to instantly create a chaise.
