FURNISHINGS

Splice Stool

The inspiration behind this sustainably sourced birch ply stool was angular shapes seen around ships and dockside machinery. The stool can be used in a commercial or residential setting indoors or out, and it’s stackable, which makes it all the more appealing. Keep in mind that it’s made to order though, so it could take a few weeks.

Easy Edges Low Table Set

For this Thursday’s design classic we have Frank Gehry’s Easy Edges Low Table Set. You’ll probably recognize these, as Gehry is well known for using cardboard to make several pieces (Wiggle Chair, Wiggle Stool) of the Easy Edges Collection. Of course, most the world recognizes Gehry for his architecture rather than his use of a rather humble material in surprisingly sturdy furniture.

We featured Bend Seating’s Farmhouse, Lucy, and Ethel Chairs a while ago, and we certainly can’t pass up featuring the Bunny Lounge as well. The whole collection is indoor/outdoor friendly, so you’ve got versatility that’s most welcome during those fine weather days where you choose to spend some time outside.

Blox Mango Table

This table has the nice detail of asymmetric legs to set it apart from other clean lined dining options. Plantation grown solid mango wood makes for a warm wood grain, and the price of $499 means there’s some room in your budget for chairs too.

Semigood Design Rian Cantilever Bench

Although we’ve posted designs by Semigood before I thought they could use a revisiting. The Semigood Designs are built to order in heirloom quality, so you can pretty much expect to have this for the rest of your adult life. This piece would be great in an entry hall.

Mario Bellini Le Bambole sofa for B&B Italia in 1973

I’m obsessed with the Le Bambole sofa for B&B Italia. Before you get your hopes up, this particular piece is sold out. However, if you’re patient, you may find one at an online auction site or at a resale shop. Also, the chair was rereleased by B&B Italia in 2007.

Wooden Stool from Kaufmann Mercantile

Mortise, tenon and finger joint detailing. Handmade of reclaimed oak, alder and sycamore in Los Angeles, CA.

Matera Armoire by Sean Yoo

Sigh. If I lived in a loft instead of a house built in 1913 which needed oodles of work, I’d be buying a couple of these and call it a day. $5000 actually seems cheap compared to the work I have ahead of me.

Leaning Man Console

I’d like to say this console would be easy to build, but I think that’s being more than a little optimistic. The leaning design cuts down on visual clutter, seeing as there are two legs instead of the usual four, which would help a small space appear to be just a little larger. There’s also a Leaning Man Side Table (£175.00) if you need a smaller sized occasional table. Designed by Frank Flavell for &then design.

Line Media Console

This media console strikes a nice balance between function and aesthetics. The louvered front allows a remote control to operate the devices inside while shielding the messy cords and visual clutter. The wider 70″ version is shown above, but there’s also a 35″ option for smaller spaces.
