On The Rocks Sofa

This is pricey but I love it! It’s referred to as a “system” because the four elements can be moved around in numerous ways to create different seating arrangements.

And for those of you wondering, yes, the backrest cushions have non-slip pads to keep them in place.

Paulistano Armchair

Bound to become iconic (in my humble opinion), this chair is an investment that will be worth every penny as years pass.

“Details that make a difference are the signature of this architect. The frame, a continuous 17-foot piece of solid stainless steel, is shaped under 200 lbs of hydraulic pressure over 24 hours. The result is a sinuous structure welded in a single spot and wrapped in almost an entire hide of leather that will gain depth and luster as it ages. Exceptionally comfortable, the Paulistano flexes slightly and can be adjusted for upright or relaxed sitting positions by shifting the leather sling up or down the frame.”

Itbed mattress and futon

This is a pretty smart design, and it would certainly impress your guests…Imagine pulling it out of the closet, setting it down, adjusting, and then saying, “Ta-da!”. I think I wouldn’t mind it as an everyday bed either, as it has a casual/edgy look about it.

“The itbed is made from 7 mm thick cardboard that is folded like an accordion. In one step the itbed can be collapsed into an easily portable bundle making the cardboard bed an ideal solution for guest beds or frequent movers. The zigzag profile of the itbed, reminiscent of a house of cards, is stabilized from head to foot by two lengths of webbing…The itbed is available in two models. itbed futon is made for futons or thinner roll-up mattresses and comes with an extra horizontal support that is also collapsible. This particular model is especially useful as a guest bed. itbed mattress is made for use with more traditional mattresses and is thus suitable for every day use.”

Knoll Sale/Prince Aha Stool

Knoll’s having a sale until tomorrow so now’s your last chance to get a Barcelona Chair, Tulip table or other Knoll designs on the cheap! (I’m using the word “cheap” in a relative nature).

The Aha Stool (seen peeking from behind the case study bed) was designed by Philippe Starck and is now very much within financial reach for most of us). The great thing about this stool is that you can use it for seating, table or storage, and it can be used both indoor or out.

Love Chair

I know most people are crazy for Mr. Jonathan Adler, but somehow I didn’t get hit with the adoration bat when it comes to most of Mr. Adler’s designs. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s all good stuff, it’s just that nothing has struck me as an ‘i have to have it’ type thing. And then I see this, and somehow I finally got hit in the ‘noggin, if that’s the saying. This chair is so “sweet” it’s cute, and while I appreciate it for the irony (maybe?), I’m sure loads of people love it just ’cause it’s Adler.
