Bovist Pouf

I hadn’t really thought much of these until I saw them in person- they really do have a ‘particular’ charm that lends some character to the room it’s in. Sure, it’s a bit more of a dent in your wallet than any ol’ ottoman, but it has a bit more personality, so that’s the trade off.

“Bovist is a decorative floor cushion, stool, and ottoman all in one. Its appealing shape and high degree of seating comfort are thanks to the large number of pleats on the side and a filling of small plastic balls. Large sections of embroidery give the cover, which consists of different colored fabrics, a particular charm and there is a knitted thread handle for moving Bovist to different places in the home.”

Designed by Hella Jongerius.

notes: measures 21.25″ diameter x 16″ height

LC3 Grand Modele Sofa & Chair

The LC2 collection, which is extremely recognizable, has been known for its compact footprint and cushioned comfort. I’ve always felt that the sofa and chair were rather small, and not really real ‘lounge’ material, so I was quite surprised to see the LC3 collection with its much larger proportions (it’s like the granddaddy of all modernist sofas). This would definitely be an investment, but man, it looks comfortable.

“The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 collections as “cushion baskets” which they designed in 1928 as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. With cushions held in place without being tethered to the frame, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style…
The differences among the groups are that the LC2 is more compactly scaled, and the LC3 has down-wrapped cushions that create a softer look and feel…
Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassina”s Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina in Italy under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation.”

(Other colors available for a slightly higher price.)

Timber Stools

Metalic finish stools are available in chocolate, vanilla, pewter and bronze.

“The stools have a soft curve for comfort and the table’s flat surface holds a drink. At 17” high and 21” diameter, they’re happiest in multiples (like a forest), so think of them for your next project, or wherever people like to have a little fun. Timber Stools are produced using a Gelcoat finish. Gelcoat is a material used to provide a high quality finish on the visible surface of a fiber-reinforced composite material. The fiberglass understructure, provides the structural integrity, is also colored, incase severe scratching should reveal the understructure. Surface scratches can easily be buffed out with polishing compound. Many boats are produced with Gelcoat over fiberglass, and the Corvette sports-car exterior body has been produced with this type of material since its inception.

All metallic finishes are actual metal powders suspended in the Gelcoat top layer. Metallic finishes will further oxidize overtime adding to their beauty.”

Hee Outdoor Seating

I like these so much.

“Inspiration can come from anywhere, and in the case of Hee Welling, it was the interior of a refrigerator. More specifically, the shelves inside the refrigerator caught the eye of this industrial designer…
The durable powder coat finish makes the Hee Lounge suitable for indoor and outdoor use by protecting the solid steel underneath. The coating also provides a surprisingly soft seat, and gives a slight “give” to the surface.”

Available in White, Yellow, or Green.

Made of solid steel with a durable powder coat finish.
All are stackable.
