Cedric Walnut Desk

If you’ve a decent budget to spend on a desk, turn your eyes toward the Cedric. Rounded edges provide subtle detailing, giving it a quiet craftsmanship that makes it the sort of piece you’d pass down to the next generation. Made from solid European walnut; choose between a dark brown or orange leather top (and lined drawers, a nice detail).

Primary Desk by Nathan Yong

This Primary Desk is an odd sort of fellow with its angles and points and slim drawers. Inspired by mid-century furniture in the designer’s childhood, the desk hits a mark somewhere in between classic and futuristic, which isn’t an easy target, to be sure. Solid walnut makes for a sturdy frame with just enough worktop space for a small computer and writing area, and five drawers are available to squirrel away odds and ends. There’s also another thoughtful detail worth mentioning: the angle of the top drawers allow for the pitch of an open laptop. Now 15% off (until July 31).

Holy Stool and Candy Table

This colorful table and stool by UM Project would be a great choice for occasional tables. Whether you choose to go monochrome or mix colors, the duo-tone finish would add interest and warmth to a room. It’d be smart to use the sturdy stools as side tables for daily use and then as extra seating when you have a few more guests than chairs.

Degree Table Unit

Any piece of furniture that incorporates cork into its design has my attention, and this table by Patrick Norguet for Kristalia is no exception. A removable table top/lid means it is also a storage piece, and that’ll no doubt be useful wherever it ends up. You have a few options: white or black rotational polypropylene, with or without a genuine cork coating; white, black, or cork lid, all in either round or square.

Plopp Inflated Stool

We’ve featured this little guy before, but after several years, he needs his info updated. This stool appears to be inflated plastic, but is, in fact, made from welded steel sheets that are industrially inflated. This manufacturing process (called FiDU ‘Freielnnen Druck Umformung’ = ‘free inner pressure deformation’) was developed by Oskar Zieta and allows for lightweight forms to hold a fair amount of weight with minimal material. No two are alike.

3 Leg Table

You won’t like the price tag, but you will probably grow to like- or even love- Wrk-shp’s 3 Leg Table. It’s a little quirky but also entirely minimal and simple in its approach to providing a surface and a light. Three steel legs, one of which houses the fabric covered cord of the light fixture, balance the console-sized wood top, resulting in a perfect piece to live in an entryway or hallway. Concrete facing on the drawer and feet adds further interest to the mix of materials.

You and Me Ping Pong Table

Pingpong anyone? Imagine special meals around this dining table: a nice dinner with the family, then bring out the net and it’s every man/woman for himself/herself. The first serve goes straight into the mashed potatoes and the second hits your Uncle (accidentally, of course, he got in the way when he was clearing the dishes) because you were overzealous with your best backhand stroke. You can’t let [insert annoying relative] win, now, can you?

All this fun can be had with the You and Me Ping Pong Table, a standard-size pingpong table that doubles as a dining table. And,it gets better: this table is appropriate for both indoors and out. A hidden drawer keeps the net, balls, and paddles tucked away when not in use with a little extra room for napkins and a tablecloth. Keep in mind this could also be a conference room table for your office; solve interoffice disputes with a game! And, it’s now available in black! So sleek.

Humpback Lounge Chair

Whoa, there’s a big sale on some outdoor items over at CB2. As a point of reference, this Humpback Lounge Chair’s retail price was $258.95 and now it’s marked down to $124.99. For an outdoor chair, that’s a steal, especially considering you’re not buying it from a big box store where you may also buy groceries (in my opinion, there’s something that feels very wrong about that).

Custom Backyard Table

Nice! Stylegarage has these stainless steel base sets ($395 CAD) that make the ‘DIY table’ concept super simple. You will need a drill, of course, and a measuring tape, as well as some wood planks or alternative top, but it’s easy from there. Pick whatever length of planks you want to make your ideal table top size- get them from your local hardware store or a lumber or salvage yard. All the steps are listed on the site, but here’s a quick version: lay the planks on the ground, line them up, attach the base with screws, flip the table over, and you’re done!

Tom Dixon Peg Chair

Constructed from natural, solid birch wood, this cafĂ© chair by Tom Dixon is light-weight and robust. Carry it from the dining area to the living room or office for an extra seat without looking like a weakling, or, more importantly, hurting your back. The “quietly pared down character” of japanese architecture was the inspiration for its functional shape.

Kitty Kasa

Your little feline friend could use some new hideouts, and this Kitty Kasa Collection from ArniSays won’t burn your retinas like the other offerings at the pet store. And, as if your cat’s happiness isn’t enough reward, when you buy one of the Kasa items, you’re also saving the life of a shelter cat, as all profits go directly to the ARNI foundation, a 501(C)3, non-profit, no-kill, animal shelter located in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Lerival Felt Stool

This isn’t new, but who cares? It’s still a felt stool that holds weight simply by its folds and rivets. Think origami, in a larger scale and in felt. Exploring the most efficient use of fabric led to this design with a comfortable saddle-shaped seat. Designed by Moorhead & Moorhead and manufactured by Lerival.

Model Six Stool

Several years ago when we posted this stool, 2007 to be exact, it was simply known as the ‘Covey Stool’ from the designer Jeff Covey. Now its name is the Model Six, and it’s on sale from MoMA Store for $349.95. Chrome-plated steel legs snap together and the walnut seat can be adjusted from 24″-28″ height, making this strong stool an excellent flat-packed option for your bar or counter area.
