FURNISHINGS

M3 seat/storage

Seating with integrated storage is a big bonus for any room short on space, and add the color lime to the mix and you’ve got a winner. This M3 storage box will hide away all manner of odds and ends and will double as an extra seat when needed. Could be a good fit for a kids room or a casual living area perhaps?

Islita Armless Chair

In the market for outdoor furniture? Man, do you have my pity. It’s hard to find the right sort of modern look when you go hunting in normal stores, and you’ll see a plethora of teak and/or metal atrocities that will make you want to cry. Or maybe you do find the right sort of modern look, but you’ll have to sell your liver car to pay for the interest that will be on your credit card. That nice, expensive furniture will sure be comfy while you’re weeping outside in the summer sun because you can’t go anywhere.

All that to say that this Islita Armless Chair is $349 right now, on sale from $399. It fits with other pieces to make a sectional for a larger seating area, and the bi-level shelf in the back will be perfect for resting drinks and your summer reading.

Echo Coffee and Side Table

You might be a little tired of hearing me talk about the new collection from Debra Folz, but you’re just going to have to deal with it, because these tables are pretty spectacular. The glass portion is made from four different layers, each having one color/layer of the pattern. As the layers overlap, deeper hues appear with a three dimensional effect. Now, the price is a little higher than you might like, but keep in mind those four layers of glass and the wonderful pattern they’ll project onto your floor.

La Table stool

This little outdoor stool is just for the EU/UK readers, as it’s not yet available in North America. As you can see, it’s stackable, and with its bright color, excuse me, colour options, it’s sure to cheer up a patio or deck area. The legs are detachable should you wish to store them over the winter season, and there’s an accompanying La Table, square and La Table, rectangular, also in several different colours, should you need it.

Plush Bed

It’s not my job to save you money (or is it?), but if you’re looking for a decently priced (and minimal/modern) bed, you might just want to take a gander at the Plush. You can save a couple of hundred dollars- until June 9- on either the grey or natural color options, leaving you a little extra money to splurge on, say, perhaps some new summer bed linens?

Side Box

It’s a box. It doesn’t have a charging station, it won’t organize your emails, it’s just a side table with storage to display books and such. It will last though, thanks to solid wood construction with those oh-so-smart dovetail joints, and ease into any design scheme you have for your home, because, after all, it’s a box, and that’s as simple as you can get when it comes to side tables. Use it as a low surface at 11.75″ high or turn it on its side to use at 16″ tall.

Braided Stools

Furniture is rarely ‘fun’ with a capital F, but there’s not many words more appropriate to describe these Braided Stools by Debra Folz. Each stool is CNC cut to accommodate traditional leather weaving techniques, and the result is a fresh take on textural adornment. Choose between 6 available leather colors (may be combined in the case of the bi-color bench as shown above) and three different woods.

Citybook S

Oh, you Italians, you’ll not need to shell out additional cash for shipping, but the rest of us will, for this modular bookcase seems to be calling out our collective name. Linked together by small magnets, each Citybook House (€76.00) can be oriented roof side up, down, left, or right, giving you multiple options for the overall design. Purchase bases and modules separately or choose from the proposed compositions.

Industry Chair

Well, $199 for a minimal steel chair isn’t so bad, especially when you consider the price of a visual equivalent like the Emeco 20-06 Stacking Chair. Now, this one isn’t made from recycled aluminum, and it doesn’t stack, and sure, that’s a little disappointing, but you will have $376 left in your pocket, which means you can buy a second chair and some friends groceries.

Cleon Small Sectional Sofa

Let’s talk sectional sofas. They’re usually expensive, and you get whacked over the head with various interior suspension info that you probably don’t care too much about, even though it’s important, especially as you’ll be sitting on it for every day for the rest of your life.

We’ll not revisit any bullet points about frames, springs, or foam, we’ll just look at this small sectional sofa from Blu Dot and admire its simplicity and configuration possibilities. Also, for someone that’s continually worried about dogs/kids/dirty-shoes-on-furniture, when you look at how the components come apart, it looks like a breeze to reupholster should it be needed in the future. Available in sectional groupings, or each individual piece on its own.

Hot Mesh Counter and Barstool

You can stop shopping for barstools now, because the Hot Mesh Chair has siblings. Available in six finishes (black, green, humble red, natural yellow, simple blue and white), you’re sure to find the right hue to fit your dining/kitchen area, and don’t ignore the fact that the stools are stackable and suitable for use outdoors as well.

Bend Bench S

Sorry for posting another item from an invite-only site, but this bench is something worth talking about. Hand laminated with birch triplex, the Bend Bench curves just so to provide a seating surface. A red rope adds a little fun into the mix and ensures stability.

Aalto stool 60, Rings

Another anniversary stool? Sure, let’s have it. Alvar Aalto’s three legged Stool 60 turns 80 this year, and we’ve already seen a few other versions that piqued our collective interest. Nao Tamura’s version is decorated with the growth rings of a tree, 80 rings to be exact, and the size of the rings are never the same. Unfortunately, it appears that no US retailer carries it. Sad for those of us here in the US, not so sad for those of you on the UK side of the world.
