Semplice Bed

If you’ve been looking for a simple platform bed, but haven’t fell in love with anything yet, take a second look at this one. It has excellent proportions (just the right amount of thickness around the edges) and a lovely semi-subtle grain. I’ve got a hunch it might be of better quality than some of the other platform beds in the same price range kicking around out there…

“Veneered in either wenge-stained oak or in Ovangkol, a West African hardwood with a moderately course grain, the rich colors of this bed coordinates with a variety of other woods. All sides are finished and the frame stands 12″ off the ground, higher than many platform beds, for a visually bolder profile. The recessed legs each have a metal plate at the bottom to further the floating look that’s become a trademark of Novati’s designs. The deck is constructed of wood slats woven together with nylon strips for a combination of assured suppleness and enduring strength. ”

Ovangkol veneer or wenge-stained oak veneer; MDF; aluminum.

Bent Plywood Single Feeder

I really like this pet dish. You’ve seen the dual dish before but they’ve just recently released the single feeder which is a slightly more economical choice for those of us with discerning tastes who are also on a budget.

“The Bent Plywood Feeders hold dishwasher-safe stainless steel bowls in a platform that’s raised, which encourages digestive health benefits believed to be associated with elevated feeders. Each layer of plywood is bonded electronically in a high-pressure mold with water- and temperature-resistant resins. Three heights are available to fit animals of different sizes.”

Jellyfish Chair and Ottoman

This is not a bad price for outdoor furniture, especially to have the chair and ottoman included in one price.

“Architect Wiel Arets calls Jellyfish (2005) a ‘modern reclining lounger’ because of how its gently shaped base gives it a relaxing, subtle movement. The result is a dynamic seating experience in which the sitter, chair and environment all interact. This was the goal of the designer, who wanted a lounge chair that encouraged active use, while also bringing a clean, straightforward aesthetic to its surroundings. A handy sidekick to the chair is the Jellyfish Ottoman that can be used as a footrest or for holding drinks. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, Jellyfish is UV stable and has a weight resistance of 350lbs.”

By Wiel Arets for Quinze & Milan
Also available in light grey, green and white.

Yes, it’s a chair. Kind of hard to absorb at first, but then you get used to it. I think it’s beautiful, and most likely worth every penny (if you’ve got that many pennies to spare).

“an interesting and original piece that is signed by the designer, veryround is a masterpiece in technological construction. it is made of a single .08″ thick steel sheet frame which is cut by a three-dimensional laser, colored white and varnished for outdoor use.”
