Uplift Adjustable Height Desk

Remember the Renew™ Executive Sit-to-Stand Desk featured last week? You might have thought it was a little out of your price range, and, if so, maybe you’ll find this Uplift Desk to be a bit more within reach. Sure, there’s a few differences you’ll notice between the two, but if you want a more affordable sit-stand option, this might be a winner. The steel frame has a motor in each leg to give 26″ of height adjustment- quickly and quietly. There’s also a memory keypad option to save the heights you use the most. Several different tops and a telescoping frame allow you to customize the look and width. Take a look at all the options to craft your ideal workspace.

Renew™ Executive Sit-to-Stand Desk

Hooray! Here’s another sit-to-stand desk, and it has a motorized lift to help make the transition fast and easy. We’ve all heard the news that sitting all day long is bad for us. If you’ve tried standing desks, you also know that it can be uncomfortable to stand for hours on end. So, what’s a person to do? Flexible workspaces are the answer, and will help counteract those negative effects of sitting too long. Switch between standing and sitting periodically for the best results- it’ll add hundreds of years to your life. Okay, you know that last part won’t happen, I threw that in to see if you were paying attention.

D’Hauteville Concrete Chair

Nope, it’s not the ubiquitous shell chair you think it is. This one is made of humble concrete and steel. Talk about an industrial edge- you can’t get much more industrial than ribar steel and plain ol’ concrete. It would be an interesting mix to have a set of these chairs around your dining table, don’t you think?

Simple Bed by Kalon Studios

You know, if you’re looking for something in particular, you can email us and we’ll keep our eyes out for whatever particular thing you’re searching for, right? As in, if you were looking for a Simple Bed, which is the name of this simple bed from Kalon Studios, I would happen to come across it while planning to post their Caravan Divan Twin, and immediately post this bed instead so that you’d know about it as an option.

Roger Stool by Sika-Design

This handmade stool is made from suar wood, which, if you’re not familiar, is a fast growing (and non-endangered) tropical hardwood. It has an interlocking grain that reduces the likelihood of cracking with temperature changes, and that’s very good news for those of us that hope our furniture lasts longer than our pithy life spans. And did you see the price? Very, very affordable which is oh-so-nice to see. Use it as a low table in the living room or take it outside, as it can go back and forth to suit your place-to-put-my-drink needs.

Muji’s Body Fit Cushion

If you think you know how to be lazy and while (or, wile, if you prefer) away the hours, you are in for a big surprise, because Muji’s Body Fit Cushion is now available in the US, and it’s going to test your limits. Just how long can you sit and read a book? How long can you nap? What about meditating staring out the window? I bet you can double that time, easy, when you’re sitting upon this bulbous mound. Muji doesn’t exactly declare what’s inside of the cushion, but that’s okay as I’d rather not know and pretend it has something to do with high tech science or magic (or both).

Marble Tables by Ferm Living

A little marble will go a long way to dressing up a room. Ferm Living’s new Marble Tables are available in three different sizes that will fit in easily as a side or coffee/cocktail table. You can’t go wrong with any of the colors (black, white, red, or green), and the powder coated metal frame is just about as durable as it gets. Imagine a jaunty ‘smart buy!’ sticker affixed to all of the images, and you’ll get an idea of my enthusiasm for these tables.

Farmhouse Modern Cupboard

The beauty of a walnut armoire/cabinet done in a minimal, modern design is just plain hard to resist, no matter the cost. Chadhaus (a favorite of ours here at BLTD) has released this new design and it has the same quality marks we’ve come to know and expect (and love) from their previous pieces.

The hand-built nature of the solid wood case and custom-veneered doors guarantees that it will last for generations to come, and the adjustable shelving and a pullout drawer makes it suitable for storage in any room. Picture it in your dining room, living area, office, or bedroom, with its shelves semi-full of perfectly organized, useful things. Now, tell me, doesn’t that picture look nice?

Brick Poufs

Poufs! They’re just the thing to rest your tired and sore feet on after a long day’s work. Thankfully this collection of Brick Poufs are super simple and very affordable, and they’re available in seven somewhat muted colors, one of which is bound to work with your interior’s overall color story. Choose between the Cube, the Round, and the Large. The larger sized poufs are obviously well suited for coffee/cocktail table territory, and will work as excellent extra seating for your friends when you throw your next get-together.

Weekend Collection by Studio Brichet Ziegler for OXYO

Look at this beauty. In a bright strawberry red, this sun bed will be sure to beckon you towards the outdoors this summer. Don’t worry, though, if red isn’t your color there are 11 other colors to choose from (including the requisite white and very safe gray). The Weekend Chair (shown below) is what originally caught my eye, as it costs $285, and that’s pretty affordable compared to some of the other modern outdoor options. In addition to the arm chair and sun bed, there’s also a bench, a bistro table, dining tables, a coffee table, all in the same array of colors. The collection is made with steel tubular framing and anti-UV powder coating, and the seats and tables are all stackable for easy storing during the colder months.
