FURNISHINGS

Dylan Dining Table

Designed by Jonas Wahlstrom, this sustainable shesham plank table has just the right balance of wood and iron to give the industrial vibe without getting too heavy metal, if you know what I mean. The architectural iron ‘W’ base changes shape depending on your sight line; it adds an interesting visual touch. A water-based clear lacquer sealant protects the wood, though coasters are recommended to protect the finish from temperature extremes and spills. Best of all, the price is under the $1G mark.

Salt Chair

Whoa, the Salt Chair is now down at $83.30 due to DWR’s dining sale. I believe that makes it the least expensive chair that DWR has ever carried (correct me if I’m wrong). The Salt Chair is a classic choice for a dining area, especially as it has a very compact footprint, which means less wasted space.

Atwood Bed

Hmm, what do we have here? Reclaimed peroba wood gives a nice rustic modern vibe, but it’s really the built in bench/bookshelf that caught my eye. Dovetail joints and just enough storage space for books gives it extra points over other platforms. Perhaps it’s not the best choice for very small bedrooms (or very small budgets), but it sure would do well when a strong presence is needed.

Silo Shelf

Is it a container, a shelf, or perhaps both? Designer Charles Job wanted a shelf that was large enough for storage purposes yet was “plain and pure in its expression” as not to dominate. I can see it working well in the bathroom, kitchen, laundry, or even (as one of the suggestions) a planter for the terrace.

Hathaway Desk

So, this looks pretty simple from the front, but what makes it stand out is the handy storage space in the back for power strips or cable management. Power strips aren’t the nicest things to look at, and a desk that has a specific space to hide that and computer cords deserve a mention. I suppose you could float it in a room as well (as shown by the happy guy in sneakers below), though take note of the perforated panel detail.

Metal Truss Work Table

This work table caught my eye the last time I visited West Elm (had to check out the Glass Greenhouse in person), and despite its rather small footprint, it’s a great price. While the size is a tad small for my own personal workspace, it would do well in a tight spot or as an entryway console.

Solid mango wood top with weathered finish; iron legs.
54″w x 28.5″d x 29.5″h.

Stash Stacking Drawers

These stacking drawers are somewhere in between the dresser category and a side table with storage. While the mix-and-match look might not fit everyone’s taste, I can see how the versatility of this would be handy to have if you prefer to change things around often.

Horqueta Chair

This Horqueta* Chair has an awfully friendly price tag, don’t you think? Especially considering it’s less than a light fixture made from corrugated cardboard (see Upcycle Pendant Lamp). Steel frame in hi-gloss carbon powdercoat.

Lap Shelving System

So, maybe you remember the Lap Shelving System feature from earlier this year (see the post for more pics), but now that it’s available stateside, I can’t help but shine a little light on it again. The novelty of the design lies in eliminating shelves in favor of movable trays and boxes that provide organization without additional storage pieces. The powder-coated sheet metal works nicely with the solid oak frame and gives a clean modern edge to the collection. If I needed shelving this would be a serious contender.

Designed by Marina Bautier.

Beam Table/Stool

If you need some character in a room- as in a big chunky side table or stool- here it is. HollerDesign brings us the Beam table and/or stool; it pretty much nails the rustic modern look with its interesting joint (see pic below) and hand charred finish.

Grove Office Center

This piece would be perfect for tucking away a home office. The size is big enough to hold a computer, accessories and files, yet it’s not too large… as in, it’s not a wooden behemoth crouched in the corner of your living room. There’s the mid century feel that most of us are fond of, and it’s handcrafted (domestically) of solid cherry wood, which means it’ll last long enough to pass down to your children/relatives.

Shanghay Chair

Four narrow boards bend to form this very simple chair. Interestingly enough, you can create your own hybrid design if you own multiple colors, as it’s easy to disassemble and reassemble. It was originally created for the Danish Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, and you can read more about it at KiBiSi and HAY Denmark.

Whoa, this cabinet by Xavier Pauchard is on sale for $299, from the regular price of $499. The steel cabinet has 5 compartments with doors that swing up and close magnetically, and it’s available in 4 colors: orange, green, cream, and black. There’s also a 10 drawer version in cream or black, on sale for $510 from $850.

The Sidebar by urbancase

Do you have an extra 3 grand lying around? If so, you could spend it on this handcrafted bar cabinet by urbancase. It has a sliding panel on the front that reveals compartments inside (perfect for glassware) plus a drop front drawer and a pull-out drawer for tools and such. Mostly it’s a great looking cabinet that doesn’t necessarily look like a liquor cabinet… and, there’s got to be some sort of pleasure in opening it up for the big reveal when you have guests.
