Round Leather Ottoman

Silver isn’t your most common choice for a footrest, or for any other upholstered piece of furniture for that matter, and maybe that’s why it’s so appealing. If you’re not into the silver, it’s also available in chocolate.

“Sleek, chic leather is upholstered over a dense foam cylinder. Indispensable as a side table, footrest, nightstand or extra seat.”

24″diam x 13″h.

Malmo Table

If you’re looking for an inexpensive side table that also has the benefit of transforming into a stool, then it’s your lucky day. For any smaller space, versatile furniture is important, and the fact that this table/stool is relatively affordable doesn’t hurt anybody either…

Availble in White, Walnut, or Black.

Terrazzo Square Table and Stools

I know it’s not exactly outdoor weather for most people, but who says you can’t get ready early? This set would look equally good inside as well…

“This black terrazzo table is a classic addition to any patio or deck. Measuring 32″ť square, you can easily match it to Napa’s square terrazzo stools (sold separately) or with your choice of teak or metal outdoor chair. Constructed from concrete with terrazzo accents, these innovative items may be left outside in Virginia winters (unlike terracotta, which is guaranteed to crack). Whether you prefer the look outdoors or in, this table is an undeniable classic.”

Table (32w x 32d x 30h), $559.00

Stool (12.5w x 12.5d x 18h), $125.00

Shelter Sofa

I’ve always loved shelter arm sofas, they are so comforting and comfortable, and at this price, I don’t think you could go wrong.

“High arm, high back, high drama. New-century cocoon cozies up like a room in a room. Referencing prairie and ranch with a spare horizontal point of view. Chocolate hopsack weave is a neutral slate brown ready to take on any pillow, any wall color. Solid maple legs taper 50s style.”

Catifa 207 Chair

This chair has a similar silhouette to the Cox Chair, yet has a significantly lower price tag (due to the materials, of course, but it’s nice to have the shape without dropping a whole load of money). Lots of color options seem to available as well…

lowseat by patricia urquiola

I just really love everything that patricia urquiola does. The Lowseat is a steel frame covered with injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam and the feet are made of stainless steel.

The best thing is that the covers are removable for cleaning (except for the leather, obviously).

Van Amburgh Stool by Sam Johnson

We posted this years ago (’06) and it needed some new shiny pictures to get your attention again. So, no, it’s not new, but it’s a good stool for a good price.

Named after the famous lion tamer Isaac van Amburgh, this stackable stool, or side table, is made from rotation-molded polypropylene.

18.9″ x 14.97″high
Black, Red, White

“WB Chair”

White on White just relaunched their new site. While perusing it today, I found the WB chair for only $135 (while the original sells for around $500). Such a great deal. Mind you, it is a reproduction, but if you’re in the Ikea price range, you may try White on White.

Quinze & Milan’s Solo Junior

Finally, some truly modern children’s furniture that’s not too expensive and looks great.

“Resembling abstract building blocks, the Solo Junior, with its bright colors and firm but comfortable foam material, calls out to be sat on, flipped over and climbed upon. A petite scale of a chair designed for the Seattle Public Library, it has a unique shape and makes a startlingly comfortable perch for bodies small and large. Inspired by the modern world’s constant state of flux, Arne Quinze and Yves Milan design furniture that expresses playfulness, creativity, quality, excitement and ingenuity. Made of Quinze & Milan’s proprietary polyurethane foam, which was developed as an alternative to upholstery. The Solo is weather-resistant, nontoxic, recyclable and easy to clean. Suggested age: 3 yrs and up.”
