FURNISHINGS

a frame picnic table

Picnics! Thank goodness that the weather is nice enough to enjoy a meal out-of-doors, and this a frame picnic table will keep things semi-civilized with a tabletop for your feast and built-in benches for your collective rear ends. Weather-resistant powdercoated aluminum ensures longevity, but don’t think it only has to live outside. You could move it indoors should you need an extra table for holiday gatherings, or maybe it could even be the main dining table if your home has more of a relaxed vibe.

Moon Tables

Sleek! These Moon Tables from Ethnicraft’s Universo Positivo collection strikes the right note with their solid oak tops and lacquered stainless steel sides. The slight rim helps corral any miscellany- not that you’ll have any- and the materials give a refined feel to a rather simple, no-frills design.

Artist Deck Chairs

When searching for outdoor seating options, don’t forget about the deck chairs from Artware Editions. They’d be easy to move from the car to sun to shade while at the beach, and you’ll get some curious looks when people spot the unusual artwork upon the digitally-printed, sailcloth sling. There are beach/bath towels by some well known artists as well, so there’s no need to hold back on displaying your art appreciation. Note: Artist-designed deck chairs could be considered a little ostentatious, so be sure not to be too much of a you-know-what when someone asks about them.

Tripod Stool

Like the look of this Tripod Stool? You’re in luck, as it’s on sale until tomorrow, according to its description. Oh, and don’t get too attached to the wooden top without considering the Marble Top version, as you might like a different material thrown into the mix. Oh, and be sure take a look at the Tripod Table, also able to be used as a short stool, which at $146 (again, sale lasts until tomorrow) is one heck of a bargain.

Prouvé Standard SP Chair

Fans of Prouvé are familiar with the high price tags associated with the name, and that’s exactly why everyone should sit up and pay attention to this version of the original Standard Chair. Notice the ‘SP’ in Prouvé Standard SP Chair? That, my dear, indicates ‘Siège en Plastique’ which means an ASA plastic seat and back. Don’t you turn your nose up at the word ‘plastic’, because it’s still an authentic Prouvé chair. A plastic seat and back would make more sense in high traffic areas where you needn’t worry about keeping the surface pristine- a few scrapes and such won’t be as noticeable, and I dare say it’ll be easier to clean. And, it brings the price down to a much friendlier place, which is oh-so-nice to see.

Rigby Media Console

What’s that price tag doing on such a modern media console? And it can be mounted directly on the wall without the base, thus bringing the price down to $999? Hmm, perhaps we need to consider where it could live in our own homes. I especially like the option of the wall mount version, as it could be hung at any height and do the job of an entryway console or dining area buffet.

Ichiro Iwasaki Cup Table

While this glass table might not be the best choice for a home with kids, it does have a certain appeal with its unexpected material. The colors are a nice change from the usual wood/black/white color options usually expected from the side table category, and, as an extra function, you can flip the table over and use it as a very large vase or as a storage vessel for pillows or blankets.

Hollister Table

This Hollister Table is an affordable console option, and, correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks pretty good for the price. An iron base supports a natural wood top, and that’s about it. No frills, no fuss, just a table to fit in wherever you need an extra surface. Would it fit in your entryway as a landing pad for keys and mail? Maybe. Behind a sofa for displaying a few favorite objects? Certainly.

Gordon Stool

Yes, you could go the super modern route when choosing your barstools, or you could pick a softer, quieter option like the Gordon Stool. It could easily work with traditional or modern pieces, thanks to its no-fuss, ladder-like metal frame. The wood seat and feet are available in a natural (oak) finish and a lighter whitewash finish.

Jens Bench

Often entryways are too cramped for any kind of seating option, but if you have the luxury of space, you might as well add one in so that your family and guests have a spot to set their bags or take off their shoes. The Jens Bench, designed by (you guessed it) Jens Risom for DWR, features a cushion that can be positioned to the right, left, or center to allow for a built-in side table.

Windsor Chair by Chris Specce

Looking for a modern take on the traditional Windsor chair? Don’t rule out this version designed by Chris Specce, as it takes the quintessential form and eliminates any overly ornate details for a clean and modern look. It’s sturdy, so it’ll stand up to the bumps and scrapes of a high traffic dining room, and the bolder color options further set it apart from its stuffier predecessor. Available in bleached, natural, blue, red, and black stains.

Kingstown Barstools

The Kingstown Barstools from Studio Dunn are just as sleek as they were when they first hit the market a few years ago. Similar to Studio Dunn’s popular Conventry Stool, the barstools combine traditional handmade joinery with contemporary manufacturing methods to create a seating option with incredibly graceful lines. And, as a tip of the hat to their eco-friendly cred, it’s worth mentioning that Studio Dunn works with high-quality domestic timber from sustainable forests.

Oak Naomi Side Table

As is often the case, simple and well made items can carry a heftier price tag, so don’t be too surprised that the Oak Naomi Side Table isn’t cheap. This solid oak wood side table incorporates a storage spot for magazines and newspapers and has classically minimalist vibes coming out of its metaphorical nose. It’s a no-brainer if it fits your budget.
