FURNISHINGS

Sale: Alu Headboard

Unheard-of pricing for the Alu Headboard. I could afford this.

The upholstered headboard is usually $700 but the orange & red versions are only $299. The headboards tilt back from 0° to 30° to 45° for reading or watching tv. The headboard is actually slip covered so that gives those of you non-orange lovers an opportunity to buy it on the cheap while maintaining the option to take it to your local tailor to have it made in a different color.

BDB604 Chaise

Maybe it’s not the most imaginative name for a chaise, but I think it’s a steal for the price.

Aero Lounge Chair

To find an outdoor lounge chair under $250 is pretty good, but to find one that looks this good is great. Normally I’d prefer wood for the out-of-doors, but this particular design has me sold on aluminum.

“An elegant and classic ladderback aesthetic distinguishes the sleek Aero Collection from ordinary indoor/outdoor furniture. A smooth lacquer finish resists scratches for low-maintenance use indoors and out.”

Thomas Wold Block Party Credenza

The panels of this credenza move around to display your worldly goods in a coy sort of way. The lower shelf is tall enough for lp’s and there are holes in the back sized perfectly for cords of all sorts.

Hilton Sideboard

I think this sideboard would fit the bill for storage/surface needs. It’s sleek and contemporary, has a nice large surface for depositing keys or office papers or food (or whatever else might strike your fancy), and it has nice options for the top. I’m not one to drop lots of money on just one thing, but it bears reminding that you usually get what you pay for, and I think this would be worth every penny.

Wood lacquered in silver. Mirror glass doors with aluminum frame. Top: wenge, bleached oak, cherrywood, white or silver lacquered

Jazz Buffet

The shape and proportion of this buffet looks remarkably like my walnut knoll credenza. For a little DIY, you can make this look a lot better by simply getting rid of the spindly 50’s legs and replace them with something more architectural looking, like these Ikea kitchen cabinet legs. My Knoll credenza has 6 legs (center supports in front and back), so I would purchase two sets of the legs.

This would be perfect in an office (as intended by Knoll) or you can also use it as an entertainment center.

Easyshelf(s)

This is something to take note of: a shelf that can be mounted on the wall various ways by folding it whichever way you want. It’d fit in lots of different settings as well…bathroom, office, living, etc…

“The shelf achieves its special form when folded. Its surface is of brushed aluminium, which, together with the continuous band of black industrial plastic between the two aluminium layers, determines the shelf’s appearance. Because the material is just three millimetres thick and the folds characterize the shelf’s form, the shelf may appear either as a simple line or a folded sculpture, depending on your vantage point. The shelf’s form is stable and can be stressed between the folds with
of a load of, for instance, up to 31 CDs or several books.”

23.5″W x 5.6″D (.12″ thick)

Archipi

This is pretty amazing.

“Archipi is a sculptural presence in high-gloss lacquered wood.

Originally based on a request from a customer, the challenge was to create a table without any visible joint, complete in high-gloss. The resulting piece is a product of a several week process, equally at home as a coffee table or in the garage next to your ferrari.”

Charles Brill Wilsonart Nest Chair

ICFF: Matthew Kroeker

I do have to say that these two chairs are quite intriguing…

“Two chairs mate neatly along a broken line of shifted wood slats. Hinting at a metaphor for a broken or mended relationship, the chairs join to form a bench. Two can sit close or separate. The chairs are made from plantation grown teak hardwood, cast aluminum and aluminum tubing. They are suitable for outdoor and indoor use.”

The Oldstock candleholders are pretty eye-catching as well, and the fact that they are made from recycled glass bottles doesn’t hurt one bit.

Kant Desk by P. Frey & M. Boge

This is quite a different take on an otherwise usual problem of storage.

“Kant is a desk that will help you keep your desk tidy. It’s got a folded back section which provides a place for books, files and many other items that usually clutter your desk. Made of either white or black laminated birch plywood.”

120 x 85.5 x H.74cm (actual work space is 55cm deep)

Cub Children’s Chair

These little chairs are so cute and inexpensive that I want to get some even though I don’t have kids. The chairs are made entirely of pure granulated cork (reclaimed from the bottle-stopper industry) and a non-toxic binding agent.
