I sat in this leather chair yesterday and it’s surprisingly comfortable. I almost wanted to buy it. But I have no space for a leather armchair. But if I had a space for it I guarantee I would have taken that thing home with me.

Air Bench

I like the bench, though I might be more likely to describe it as a bench with holes drilled into it rather than ‘circles of air’, but, hey, it sure sounds nicer…

“Architect Thomas Sandell breathes life into his wood with this impressive table design. Circles of air are sculpted into this endpiece, the perfect complement to its living, vibrant finish.”

Kramfors Sofa

There has been a lot of talk about the new Ikea collection but this is one of the first things that just doesn’t shout “I’m from the Swedish ubiquitous retailer!”. And what’s most exciting is that the cover is removable (dry clean only, but that’s better than nothing). If nothing else, you can take the cover to an upholsterer and have it reproduced in a different color.

This is a newer version of the q chaise–the previous version required freight shipping, this model can be sent by FedEx.

This versatile piece starts as a cube but can become a chair with ottoman or a chaise depending on how you fold it.

Theatre Sofa

This sofa is touted as modern AND comfortable.

“Theatre’s comfort stems from its well-made form rather than excessive layers of stuffing and upholstery. The gentle angle of the backrest, full seat depth and elevated armrests are eminently suited to a formal living room or reception area.”

Honestly, I don’t think you need to feel like you’re being excessive about spending $2500 on a sofa. Good furniture is expensive to make. It will probably outlast you. Think about it. If you have it for the next 40 years, that’s only $67 a year.

‘folded’ coffee table

Check it out, an origami-ish coffee table. No, it doesn’t fold up, but the surface appears to have been folded/unfolded with it’s ‘sloping planes’. It would look pretty killer in person; I’m willing to bet money on it.

“inspired by the art of origami, the ‘folded’ table is yet another in a recent line of impressive designs by arik levy. available in two heights, this rectangular coffee table is supported by a chromed steel base, and has an .5″ thick plastic top made using ‘carousel moulding’ – a process which allows a full consistancy of materials and a polished, scratch resistant surface. the three-dimensional table top is something to be admired, with it’s asymmetrical sloping planes – like, naturally, a sheet of folded origami paper – which creates a diamond-like effect when light is shined upon it. and yet, the inclinations are very slight, so you won’t have to worry about things sliding off.”

by Arik Levy
top available in two colors : standard black or burgundy red.
dimensions : 29.75″w x 51.1″l : high version – 18.5″h : low version – 11″h
