FURNISHINGS

JAC Side Tables

Each of these side tables by British designer Gavin Coyle is made from one plank of Douglas fir. Pieces are stacked together in certain sequences to highlight the patterns created by the growth rings, which, as you can see, lends an extra level of refinement to the design. The tables are then are machined on a lathe to create geometric profiles.

Cork Family

Lest we forget, Jasper Morrison’s Cork Family is a smart choice for any living area. Each piece could be a side table or stool and is light enough to move around easily. Cork is also pretty tough, so you wouldn’t need to be too precious with keeping it away from kids. Available in 3 different styles (and yes, they’re priced individually).

Tessello Table Legs

Noah Lambert has added a great leg option to the marketplace: the Tessello. Sold as a set of 3 for $90 (or a set of 4 for $120) it’s a pretty affordable option, especially if you already have a table that just needs a makeover in the leg department. Media center, coffee table, nightstand, you name it, the legs are a no-brainer for an easy update, as you’d only need a drill/screwdriver and screws or bolts to attach them to your choice of table top. Each leg is cut from a sheet of .1875″ thick steel and bent with a custom jig to insure uniformity.

Sum Shelving System

How about some asymmetrical shelving for your storage needs? Made of solid cherry, the Sum Shelving System attaches to the wall with brass fixings.

Build it up vertically, horizontally, diagonally- whichever way you prefer. Sold as a set of 3.

Pilot Stool

Quinze & Milan’s Pilot Stool is notable not only for its curved (and seemingly comfortable) seat, but also for its new method of fabrication. Polypropylene foam is utilized in a special manufacturing technique (see below video) to create a glossy-yet-matte surface. The oak legs thread onto the seat, making the stool easy to ship and assemble. Available in three different height variations: standard, kitchen, and bar.

Ds? Darmstadtium! Sg? Seaborgium! Appropriate for indoor or outdoor use; designed and made in LA by James DeWulf.

Alden Sideboard

Sideboards are one of those investment pieces that stick with us no matter how much we move, so you might want to make sure you do your research before buying one just because it matches your dining table. Eastvold has an excellent option in the Alden Sideboard. The wood grain runs seamlessly across the door/drawer fronts, giving a unified, sleek look. Dovetailed drawers, soft-close slides, and hidden hinges add to its qualifications. And, hey, this doesn’t have to go in your dining room; it can easily live as a media center, as it accommodates media equipment wiring and has adjustable shelves.

ErgoErgo

You know how a Yoga/Fitness Ball is supposed to be better for you to sit on because it engages your core muscles? That’s all fine, but they’re a little unsightly for some interiors, not to mention huge when in a small office space. Therein lies the market for the ErgoErgo: it allows for the same sitting experience in a more acceptable stool design. The body can rock gently in any direction, and, as the ErgoErgo is filled with air, the height may be adjusted slightly to accommodate your preference.

Oak Nordic Bed

Sometimes you might settle for sub-par furniture. That’s acceptable in some cases, but certainly not for a piece of furniture you’re going to sleep on for a third of your lifetime. The Oak Nordic Bed by Ethnicraft is made from sustainably farmed solid oak that is kiln dried to assure stability (think twice about any piece that doesn’t use kiln dried wood) and includes hardwood support slats. There’s also quite a few similarly spare accompanying pieces (Oak Nordic Night Stand ($500), Oak Nordic Chest of Drawers ($2,500), Oak Nordic Dresser 2 Doors ($3,600)) if you need some extra storage.

Swedese Ivy Shelving

If you like everything to be lined up and precise, this might not be the shelving for you. The Ivy has the option to seemingly sway precariously to the side; it also stacks straight up, but that’s not as much fun. Make it as high or as low as you wish, as each shelf is sold as a unit.

Elko Coffee Table

Do you like a little retro feel in your furnishings? This Elko Coffee Table from Eastvold has a just a hint of 50′s mod in its angled leg base. The solid wood box has reinforced mitered joints, giving it a nice fluid feel, and the steel base is avialable in either green, black, red, white, silver or blue powder coating. Also, Eastvold offers custom sizes for an additional fee, so if you need a specific size, you’re in luck.

Face Boxes

If you need a place to store some of your little one’s toys and knickknacks, you could do a lot worse than Ferm Living’s Face Storage Boxes. Just take a look at those faces/handles. Cute. Plus, they’re stackable and small enough that kids can carry them around on their own. Maybe it’ll make cleaning up a little less of a chore (one can hope).

Pi.iii Pouffes

With a little craftiness and a sewing machine, it’s entirely possible that you could replicate these Pi.iii Pouffes at home. If you possess neither craftiness nor a sewing machine, you’ll be interested to know that these pouffes are designed and handmade by Glasgow-based upholsterer Eleanor Young (aka Fun Makes Good), and look to be entirely worth the overseas shipping (if you don’t reside in the UK). Several designs are available, and you may also purchase the pouffes through Fun Makes Good Shop on Etsy.

Last Dinner Table

Dining tables with extra leaves are nothing new, yet rarely do you find one that stores leaves in such a simple way as this table from Blu Dot. It has storage drawers at each end that allow quick access to the leaves when you have extra guests. It looks like the leaves fit onto the drawer as their support, thus minimizing any clasps or extra fussiness. (This looks to be much better than storing the leaves in the center of the table, especially as the inner edges of the table surface are often damaged when someone carelessly removes/stores the leaves.)

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.
