FURNISHINGS

Douguya Stool

Just in case you’re in the market for a small stool, you should train your eyes towards the Douguya Stool. It’s a replica of a vintage design (of unknown origin) and shows honest construction paired with sturdy materials. The brass metal frame is finished with an urushi (Japanese lacquer) coat and topped with a seat of Nara wood. It sure looks like it could take a few punches and still look good as new, and who doesn’t want that?

Slatted Barstool

Okay, this Slatted Barstool is beautifully balanced and elegant, but it’s… inexpensive? Are we reading that right? Jasper Morrison designed the bent tubular steel stool with rolled steel slats back in 1986, and luckily, it looks like it could have hit the marketplace yesterday, and we’d be none the wiser. It’s available in black or silver powder-coated textured finish.

Ro Lounge Chair

Slow down, take a seat. Breathe in, breathe out. ‘Ro’ is Danish for “tranquility” after all, so you are assigned to nothing but relaxation when you rest your weary legs on this comfortable armchair. A flared outer shell and a tufted back give a nod back to the more traditional aspects of lounge seating, while Jaime Hayon’s organic lines and fabric pairings root it firmly in the present. This may just be the perfect reading chair for a living room, study, or bedroom. Don’t we all need (another) one of those?

Tangerine Barstool

I meant what I said about looking out for decent barstools. This Tangerine Barstool by Simon James for Resident Studio has a subtle curve to its seat to make things comfortable. Solid oak contrasts nicely with the dark steel crossbars to provide a perch that quietly performs its function without commanding too much attention. Call me crazy, but that’s refreshing amongst all the other crazy, colorful stools that are just a bit too loud for most minimal interiors.

All Wood Stool by Karoline Fesser

Nice! This All Wood Stool is made entirely from (you guessed it) wood. A wooden screw-in mechanism allows you to adjust the height from 14 to 19 inches. That’s very handy for getting just the right height for your drink/laptop/etc. Choose between the straight bobbin base or the angled rocket base; either is available in solid ash or walnut.

Mega 2 Seater and Daybed

Close your eyes and imagine the smell of freshly baked bread. Now open them and feast your hungry eyes on the Mega 2 Seater and Daybed. See any similarities? Designer Chris Martin was inspired by risen loaves against a metal frame in a bakery, and now we can all get an idea of what sitting on bread would feel like, with the added bonus of continual comfort, of course.

Scout Tall Stool

I know finding the right barstools are tough, and that’s exactly why I keep my eyes out for anything remotely interesting or decent. Surname’s Scout Stools are more than decent, they’re downright perfect. No frills except for a brass or copper finish on the footrest, each stool is made from antique heart pine salvaged from dismantled New York area buildings. A gentle slope to the seat keeps your backside comfortable, and your wallet will be happy to see the price tag is just under the $300 mark.

In Between Chair

You might sense a resemblance to Hans Wegner’s Wishbone Chair in the curved back rail of this chair, and you’d be spot on, as designer Sami Kallio has a high regard for the world renowned Danish designer. Kallio’s chair occupies a certain ‘in between’ place in method of manufacturing as each one is hand and machine made. Ash and oak, the two options, both respond quite well to woodturning, more of classic hand-held lathe technique, and compression molding, a technique that allows for strength despite an overall lightness. The back and side panels provide support as well as a nicely contrasting visual gap.

Supermetal Table by Chiara Ferrari

If you’re a minimalist, you may need help picking your jaw up off the floor, then a tissue to wipe your tears. The Supermetal Table by Chiara Ferrari is impressive- it features a very thin single-sheet top with squared-off metal legs (placed flush to the tabletop, of course). It’s just what any super-minimalist wants, except for the tiny little part of it only being available for delivery in Southern California.

Neat Lounge Chair

Look at this cute little lounge chair from Blu Dot. It’s completely upholstered, so it has a snug and comfortable appearance. Sure, it looks friendly, and your backside will most likely confirm that its sloping seat and back is indeed amiable. Choose Citron or Blue for a color kick, or Grey for a more subdued statement.

Posture Chair by Modern by Dwell Magazine

Maybe you’ve heard about Target teaming up with Dwell Magazine? Well, take a look at all the offerings if you haven’t already- there are quite a few gems worth snapping up. I have my eyes on the steel Posture Chair for my deck area, as its slim legs are barely visible, and won’t be blocking any views. If you’ve got the room, add the Outdoor Sofa and the Coffee Table to complete the set.

Haze Vitrine

If you are disorganized, and tend to stuff any available storage cabinet with everything in haphazard way, then just ignore the Haze Vitrine. If you are organized, and tend to neatly stack and arrange items, then this Vitrine was made for you. Textural armored glass hazily hides the details of what’s stored inside, while sleek powder coated metal gives an industrial edge. Think of it for a storage space for dinnerware in the dining room or for towels and beauty essentials in the bathroom.

Octahedron Coffee Table

We’ve featured the Octahedron Side Table and the Double Octahedron Ring Planter from Eric Trine, so do you think we’d pass on the Octahedron Coffee Table? No way, no how. Measuring 36″ in diameter and 14″ tall, it’s a great size for a sitting area. Just add a lounge chair or two and a small sofa and you’re set. As a bonus, the table is powder coated, so it could easily live outdoors as well. It’s also significantly less expensive than it was last year.

Want Shelf

Treat your books, art, or tchotchkes right with the Want Shelf by Andrew Coslow’s studio. The interior is kept at a natural wood grain (with protective clear coat) while the outside is finished in a white wash. The warm wood grain guides your eye towards the items on the shelf, while the end caps seemingly give them a protective embrace- no bookends necessary.

Etage Legs and Tabletops

If you need an occasional table that knocks down for storage, take a look at the Etage Collection. Choose your table legs (12″ or 15″), then choose your tabletop. Also, at first glance, it may appear that you could use the legs with any surface, which you could, but it’s worth noting that the round bracket of the leg is inlaid with the accompanying top. A nice detail in an affordable occasional table, don’t you think?
