Motley Ottoman

You’ll have to allow me some leeway here, as this ottoman isn’t technically available for purchase online, but it’s so colorful that I can’t really help it. Specially knitted by Donna Wilson, this Chesterfield inspired ottoman is a lovely example of how a traditional piece can be turned on its head simply by use of fabric and color. And don’t worry, if you’re not the sort to appreciate the rainbow-esque color scheme shown above, there’s 4 other different colour ways available.

Designed by Donna Wilson

Pelican Chair

Seeing that we’re all usually up for saving some money, you might be interested to know that DWR is having their annual sale on upholstery and rugs. A quick peruse through their offerings and I kept getting caught on the Pelican Chair (1940). Curves and comfort are words that spring to mind, and of course, you just can’t go wrong with a piece designed by the architect and designer Finn Juhl. While his furniture is certainly in the ‘investment piece’ price range, you can possibly save a good chunk of change from now until the end of August.

And, if the Pelican Chair isn’t quite your cup of tea, there’s several other iconic pieces to set your sights on. Check it out: 15% off at DWR’s Upholstery and Rug Sale.

“A chair is not just a product of decorative art in a space, it is a form and a space in itself.” -Finn Juhl

Bufa Chair

What do we have here? Felt, stainless steel, and accordion-like sides… hmm. Inspired by tailored attire, the sides of this chair are threaded together with rope, presumably allowing for some adjustment. The idea of felt being transformed from flat 2D surface to a 3D form is nothing new, yet this chair utilizes elements of fashion to make an impressively stitched and very ‘this season’ seating option.

Well, if you need a pop of color indoors or out, this over-the-top throne might suit your fancy. Personally, I tend to lean towards the black or white because color seems a bit superfluous, but maybe I’m boring that way.

Heller Selene vs Bartoli

So, these green chairs stood out quite a bit when I ran across this photo the other day and habit proved unavoidable. A quick lookup to see if my memory served correct and surprise, surprise they weren’t quite the chairs (see #1) I thought they were. Now, onto the questions regarding the two chairs on the right:

a) which one do you think was made first?
b) which one costs less?
c) which one has removable legs?

Do you care? Maybe? Answers below.

Vika Veine

Okay, so we usually try to avoid featuring things from IKEA, because you most likely already know what they have and it’s a no-brainer if you’re on a very tight budget. But this little desk seems like the perfect sort of thing for a cramped workspace, and with the inside lined in felt with pockets and paper holders, plus a cable management compartment, it’s suddenly sprung from so-so to a wow-that’s-a-big-bang-for-your-buck sort of item. Keep in mind you’d still have to buy the legs, but that’s not a lot to add on price wise.

Perludi Children’s Furniture

Felt is ridiculously popular in furniture and product design right now. A new felted-whatever seems to be coming out every other day so it takes a little more effort to make something that will stand out. These pieces from Austrian children’s furniture company Perludi are doing just that.  The material is properly applied in three ways: it adds cushioning and padding for safety, it creates a playing surface for use with hook-and-loop fastners, and it adds some really fun color to the products. Perludi creates amazing non-felted products as well, but I had to just point these out in particular because it’s so refreshing and exciting to see felt used in a new and creative way.

Barrington Chair

You know that feeling you get when you see someone really cute and you can’t get them out of your head for days, even weeks? That’s what’s happened with me and Studio Dunn’s Barrington Chair. Yes, I’m crushing on a chair. I wrote a haiku about it…

Bayekou Rocking Chaise

The quieter sibling of the M’Afrique family, this chaise by Moroso features a rather subtle pattern.

You can rest assured that any of the chaises will do fine either indoors or out as they’re all made from handwoven nylon.
