Tavola Luce Side Table

This might have been posted long ago (?), but this is a much better picture. Combining light and table surface functionality is such a space saver (and it saves money as well).

“The Tavola Luce side table is furniture and a lamp in one. A glowing cube appears to float within this deceptively robust table, bathing your room in atmospheric light…”

Tribo Stool

“True to form follows function, [Ilse Lang’s] Tribo Stool (2001) features a seat with three open slots that allow the stools to be stackable up to three high. The result is an interesting design that serves a very real purpose. The Tribo Stool was inspired by traditional wooden stools used by cattle herding cowboys, or “gauchos” in Brazil, when gathered around campfires and drinking maté, a tea often enjoyed from a shared hollow gourd. The Tribo Stool stands on chromed steel legs with a seat in a choice of two Brazilian hardwoods, Tauari and Tamburi. Made in Brazil.”

Nest Bed

It’s rare that “contemporary” furniture stores do modern correctly. Usually their product lines have those gross atomic legs or “funky” pieces that already look outdated and cheap. But I think this bedroom set is pretty on-target and inexpensive to boot. I like the nightstands too! Only $199!

Breeze Cabinet

First, I apologize for posting something pretty pricy. Second, how great is this thing?

And now I have a Haiku for you. Well, it’s not exactly a Haiku, but if a product description ever sounded like a Haiku without actually being one, then this would be it:

“A little wave moved by a light breeze. A little wave that implies the handle of a fold down door. The shape is pure – not a technical component in sight. Behind the door: three open sections, seperated by vertical dividers. Made in MDF, door in plywood. Two widths, two heights. Aluminum base comes in two heights. The white cabinet has a blue inside panel behind the handle, all other versions have a white one.”

Cabinet dimensions without feet: 14.5″H x 22-24″D
