Loft Sectional

“An ultra cool design approach delivers luxurious comfort in a handsome modern sectional. The polyester bouclé upholstery has a soft pebbled texture. The pillowtop cushions and the sleek, low seat deck make for an inviting place to relax after your busy day. Sectional styling means it’s versatile enough for a small space or able to be expanded considerably. Add and subtract pieces to adapt to your modern lifestyle and the shape of your room. The bottom cushion/pillowtop fastens with Velcro, which keeps it in place and and makes it easy to remove for cleaning. A strong and beautiful stainless steel base provides a solid foundation for this elegant modern furniture. Includes five matching pillows.”

Nakashima Straight-Backed Chair

At this price, it would be strange not to treat it as a precious possession, but even so, it is a remarkable piece that shows thought and care in design and production.

‘Presenting a very special re-introduction: the Nakashima Straight-Backed Chair (1948), designed by George Nakashima for Knoll. Nakashima was an MIT-trained architect who was known to describe himself as “Japanese Shaker.” This was meant to express his belief that his designs should be treated as everyday functional objects, not precious possessions.’

Solid walnut with solid hickory spindles.
