FURNISHINGS

Mater Space Stool

More lovely furniture on sale? Yes, please. With ever-so-thin legs, these handcrafted stools are sort of stunning. We first posted these stools back in 2010, and, of course, they need some updating in the pricing field. However, do keep in mind they’re currently on sale, so you will save a tiny bit should you choose to splurge for your bar or countertop area. The Space Stools are crafted from premium oak (FSC certified) with sustainable and socially responsible methods. Be sure to check out the Aluminum version too, as it has more of a futuristic feel ($950 $760).

The Ledge

Sure, this looks like a wall shelf at first glance, but it hides a small work surface inside. Urbancase’s The Ledge has a pullout shelf/work surface that’s pretty perfect for a laptop, plus a cord management system and drawer, all within a relatively small footprint. Plus, the ‘no legs’ bit will keep a space from feeling too cramped. Aaaand, just to make your day a teensy bit better, it’s currently on sale.

CH28 vs. Lars Lounge Chair

When Room&Board released their new Lars Lounge Chair, I thought that maybe I had seen it somewhere before. Of course, it borrows heavily from a handful of classic Mid-20th century designs, and, in this particular case, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There’s lots of mid century lounge chairs that hit a pretty perfect note of top-notch design and comfort, and often you can find a pair for a decent price (i.e. less than $1k) if you scour eBay and/or resale shops. There’s also a plethora of dodgy manufacturers that copy classic designs outright, and that’s not cool (or so most people think, myself included) because it’s pretty much stealing someone’s work.

The Captain Chair

Here’s something snazzy and new from Bend Goods. It’s called The Captain Chair, and it’s currently available in gold and white, though the product images show a bold red that’s sure to follow. Add the optional cushions for a softer seat or keep it bare to show off the grid work.

SawHorse Table

This SawHorse Table has substantial legs that are sure to withstand many heavy dishes of lots of casual dinners. No need to worry about the tabletop surface either, as the table will age well thanks to its fitting materials. The ebonized oak base holds a blue ash top, and both are made to order by Matt Alexander of HollerDesign in his family’s workshop/CowBlade Sawmill.

Tre Side Table

Good news: this little table is only $199 AUD. Bad news: It’s not available for international shipping. So, you’ll just have to befriend someone in Australia and ask them to ship it to you, because how you could pass up such a deal on a small, sleek side table?

Stackable Stool/Table by Atelier de Troupe

A stackable stool is a pretty smart buy, as you’ll not be caught without extra seating if a whole load of friends stop by (we all know how popular you are). Plus, this stackable stool by Atelier de Troupe could easily double as a side table in the living area or bedroom. Made of an iron base and a waxed alder wood seat, it’s a safe bet you’ll not regret adding a few of these, as they’ll last a very long time.

Extending Table, 2131 Collection

Remember the Walnut and Marble Storage Cube from Ike Bahadourian’s 2131 collection we posted a few days ago? There’s also this walnut Extending Table that extends from 5′ to 10′ long. Doubling your seating capacity without messing with additional leaves or tables sounds like a great idea, doesn’t it? And, don’t just think of it for the dining room- you can also rotate the top for more of a workstation setup.

Walnut and Marble Storage Cube

Add a little marble and suddenly a wooden cube is not just a wooden cube- it’s something special. Ike Bahadourian chose Italian Calacatta Gold marble for the inlay on one interior surface of each of his storage cubes. This gives a luxe background to each cube’s contents; maybe your old books and other collectibles will look better in proximity. Choose the smaller sizes for a group stacking feature, or just one or two of the larger size for a side table option.

Shimmer Table

Safety glass? Indeed, this table from Patricia Urquiola is made from iridescent safety glass with a light-reactive multicolored finish that seems to change hue as you walk around it, making it a fascinating piece that’s sure to catch anyone’s eye. Fair warning, though, the price is more than a little hazardous to your wallet.

Handmade Cohabitation Console

This console shelf has a few tricks up its sleeve. Three interconnecting parts allow you to change its function slightly. An angled surface fitted on top of the base has a parapet edge can hold hangers or other necessary items in place, or use the level surface piece for more stable items. Each section is all made from the same piece of wood to minimize waste.

Pal Barstools

Well, aren’t these a sight for sore wallets? At $199 for the ash, grey, yellow or black barstool, and even less at $149 for the smaller stool, the Pal collection over at Hem hits the right price point. They’re easy to assemble, lightweight, and sturdy. Plus, for a fun fact, the curved legs were inspired by skateboard-making techniques. The circular metal bracket adds strength as well as a spot to rest your feet.
