HM Select Eames Wire Base Low Table

Just when you thought you were well over any (more) Eames furniture, Herman Miller goes and tempts you with a limited edition of the Wire Base Low Table in red, blue, and yellow. These tables are in honor of the late Ray Eames (she would have been 100 this year) and are only available for a limited time, so, if you’re a fan, and the primary colors get your ‘must-have-this-immediately’ juices flowing, get a move on and add one to your cart.

Hearty Table

However you feel about the Novogratz duo, they do know how to pick pieces with character. This table for CB2 is based on their own French antique lab table, and, as you can see, has two drawers on each side that will hold cutlery, table linens, and all manner of family miscellany, as the case may be. The top is solid acacia wood with a bottom iron stretcher base.

Sfelt Table

Here’s a relatively simple idea executed well: a removable felt wrap protects the table’s surface from feet, drinks, laptops, etc. The handier among us might replicate this idea on our own coffee tables, but don’t discount the table under the smart felt idea just yet. It’s solid walnut with nicely curved TIG-welded steel legs, so it’ll stand the test of time while easily living up to its name.

Ping-Pong Conference Table

Brilliant! Now your conference table can also be a ping-pong table, thus saving space and encouraging ‘fun’ breaks for you and your team. The central panel either functions as the ping-pong net support or as a hide-away cable management, while drawers at either end house all the ping-pong (or meeting) supplies. How is this not a good idea?

Emu Ivy Pouf

What’s so special about an upside down wire basket? Well, for starters, it’s not an upside down wire basket: it’s a seat/ottoman/side table and light. The small grey bar on the top is a solar panel, and that solar panel fuels the five LED lights that illuminate the under table at night. A webbed nylon loop on the side makes moving it around your lawn (or patio) a little easier.

OW150 Daybed

Let’s just pretend that we have space for a daybed, and budget enough to not blink an eye at the price tag of the OW150. Any guess as to who the designer is? Put your deerstalker hat on and connect the dots: OW150 = OW = Ole Wanscher. Ole Wanscher, whose furniture “exudes underplayed elegance and is it timeless, classic and thoroughly modern at one and the same time.

Magda Bookshelf

Interesting. This bookshelf is basically one steel tube with one central support, a little different from the usual two-bracket-one-flat-shelf idea, isn’t it? It’s stated that no tools are needed, but seeing as there screws in the picture, you might want to have a Phillips screwdriver handy.

Walnut Wire Side Table

This price is right for this side table, especially considering the style and materials. The warm walnut top balances out the cool copper wire base, and the size is just about perfect for a table lamp and a few odds and ends. The top is removable should you want to store something in the base, though who knows what that might look like. Might be better to leave it as is.

Aluminum Eiffel Stool

First off, the $150 price is for the kid-sized version, but, that said, $225 isn’t too bad of a price for an aluminium (or, as us Americans would say, aluminum) stacking stool. The Eiffel stool can easily live indoors or out, and do check out the image below of the stools stacked 5 high (space saving!), and see if that doesn’t impress you the tiniest bit more.

Knitted Yoga Ball

How about a little crazy thrown into your modern mix? There’s a theory floating around that adding a little strangeness or ‘ugly’ to an interior makes it more interesting. Agree or disagree? Either way, this Knitted Yoga Ball is not a typical choice. At its core is a functional yoga ball, so you could use it for your stretch routines or as an extra seating option or footrest. Created by Texas artist Magda Sayeg (Knitta) and Australian design comapny Page Thirty Three, each knitted sleeve is made from upcycled rugs and throws.

milk stools by alissia melka-teichroew

You might know Alissia Melka-Teichroew for her acrylic rings or the Inside Out glassware from a while ago, and now you can add this off-kilter stool to her list of successes. Would you have guessed she was inspired by crooked slats in a picket fence? By combining the asymmetry of the fence with the irregularity of the old-fashioned one-legged milk stool, she arrived at this sturdy and expressive design.

Canteen Table Leg Set

Oh, what a predicament you’re in when you only need table legs. We’ve posted a few trestle options, but this Canteen set might just be the best alternative to the straight forward (and somewhat boring) IKEA legs. No need for a bracing system, as the leg fixes directly to the tabletop. Choose from 7 available colors. Each box includes 4 legs.
