FURNISHINGS

Lisboa Cork Stool

Short on seating? This guy is a smart buy that won’t break the bank. In comparison, just take a look at the Vitra Cork Stools, which I’ve always liked, priced at $490 each. And can we talk about how cork is such great material? It’s sustainable and it has a great texture that adds warmth and interest to any space.

Offset Coffee Table and Stool

Fair warning, the price of this table may be too good to be true, as it’s the same price as the stool. Nevertheless, take a look at the three skewed, off-kilter legs; aren’t they fun? They’re just a bit off-center, which gives a playful feel to the heavy, solid form.

The Abbott Stool

This three-legged stool is comfortable in its nudity. Solid construction with tenon joints, shapely legs, and a slightly beveled top combine to make it easy on the eyes; it’d be a shame for it to hide any of its parts behind paint.

Cloud High Back Sofa

Prepare yourself, for this high-backed sofa carries a high price tag. But you can understand why, can’t you, especially when considering the feather and foam-filled cushions, slim steel legs, and tall, curved shell that envelopes you whenever you sit down to rest your weary feet. You’re sure to find that this sofa provides a quiet spot for reading or watching movies (or napping), which is a valuable thing in any busy household.

Portside Lounger

Is it just me, or does this seem like one heck of a deal? Finding outdoor loungers that are comfortable on the backside and easy on the eyes can be a daunting task for someone that appreciates a pared-down approach, so seeing a less-than-$400 option is a nice surprise. This lounger is made from sustainably sourced wood and features Textilene® fabric for extra breathability. Plus, it’s on sale, which makes the deal even sweeter (and 25% off for a limited time with code provided on site).

Avoa Chair

Prepare yourself, for this chair isn’t cheap. It is, however, a lesson on minimalism and autotelia. Not familiar with the term? Join the club. After you read the definition, sit and ponder the “transience and simulation” of the chair, and maybe appreciate the delicate balance between sparsity and strength.
