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.”

blockparty by hayes & stoller

Obviously this is more suitable for a commercial space versus a small residential one, but it’s a pretty cool sofa if you have the need for a huge lounging piece and happen to have $6000 to spare.

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.

Blu Dot Bonnie and Clyde Sectional Sofa

This is an unbelievable price for such a well constructed and designed sofa. Blu Dot are kind of the new kids to the game, so they are eschewing a lot of the conventional design beliefs, such as a well made sofa needs to cost a fortune.

Osorom Bench/Table

This would require a bit more money out of the bank than most other coffee tables, but it’s amazing, so it makes sense that it has a higher price point.

“This incredible design from Grcic features a lozenge-shaped object in white Hirek technopolymer; the cut outs create a magnificent spatial dimension and lightness with the piece. Perfect as a bench or a large surface like a coffee table – and, it can be used outdoors!”

measures 47.25″ diameter x 13.75″ height

K-bench by Vange

I love the newspaper bench- it can be custom made from your favorite daily news…

“K-bench is an innovative combination of design and materials. Honeycomb structured it can be expanded and contracted into different shapes according to your need. Made from polypropylene it is only 16cm thick when contracted and can extend to 3 metres in length, available in white, grey and orange. Also available is a newspaper version handmade to order out of whatever newspaper you like.”
