FURNISHINGS

Holly Shelf Bracket

While $175 for two shelf brackets seems a little steep in terms of price, there is something to be said for brackets that also double as super thin bookends. Two functions in one slim package sounds pretty good, especially if you think of the occasional avalanche of books due to an inappropriately placed bookend and how nice it would be to not worry about that sort of thing (ever) again… the price seems a tad bit more reasonable.

Ypsilon Dining Tables

Do a quick search for ‘Ypsilon Table’ online and you’ll find more than a handful of options, but I hazard a guess that there’s few that cost less than $500. This table is available in either a small round size or the larger rectangle, both coming in comfortably under the $500 mark with a little room to spare.

Toro Chair from Blu Dot

Olé, motherf#c!xr, indeed. Talk about a whole lot of bang for your buck, this chair from Blu Dot is one heck of a looker. A saddle leather sling in either natural or black (with accompanying white or black-stained beech frame) has a high end look with a downright affordable* price, especially if you figure in the 20% savings until November 8 (use promo code BLUDOT20 at checkout). That brings it down to $799 from the regular price of $999.

Japenesque by BBD

Brad Nelson is a contemporary furniture designer working in Carbondale, Colorado. The proportions of his Japenesque line are playful and exaggerated, and the pieces have an intense visual weight to them and I think they’re really interesting. I love the contrasting natural and black wood tones.

Fulton Sawhorse

These functional saw-horse legs are usually used for industrial use (2,000 lb capacity!), but they’re simple enough to provide a base for a gorgeous slab of wood or even a piece of glass. If the red doesn’t suit your needs, you could even have them powder coated locally, or if you’re up for a DIY you can just spray paint them.

Sometimes West Elm really knocks some winners right out of the park and I’ve got to say I’m impressed with this little side table. The wood is sustainably harvested and the top removes and doubles as a tray.

Curve Six Dresser by Environment

The designs of Environment Furniture revolve around around the central principal of resurrecting reclaimed woods and textiles into impeccably constructed, clean-lined furniture. While the showroom feels unfussy, the designs themselves are perfectly crafted. The Curve Dresser, made from reclaimed Peroba wood with bronze hand pulls. The pieces are pricy, but they’re so well constructed and designed that they’ll likely never need to replaced.
