Revolver Stool

There’s no telling how much fun you’ll have with a spinning barstool, but enjoyment aside, there’s a practicality in having a stool rotate a complete 360 degrees: ease of use. The Revolver Stool designed by Leon Ransmeier for HAY has circular seat, upper leg portion and footrest that spins completely around, giving you a comfortable and sensible seating option that fits in nicely with many a modern interior. And the price? Not too bad, considering the other barstools on our want list.

Sawkille Co. Stools

Finding beautifully made barstools with a pared-down aesthetic is not an easy task, and that’s exactly why the stools from Sawkille Co. stand out. A little Shaker influence is apparent, as these hand-crafted wood pieces draw from a “farmhouse modern aesthetic” that designer Johan Meyer strips down for a more modern result with pure, clean lines. Sawkille Co. has its headquarters and showroom in Rhinebeck, NY, so if you’re ever passing through, you’d be crazy not to stop and take a look.

The Floyd Shelf

Thankfully, the clever people behind The Floyd Leg didn’t stop with increasing the amount of tables on this earth: there’s now The Floyd Shelf. One set of a left and right shelf bracket can create one shelf- you just have to supply the flat surface. Maybe you’ve got some wood lying around, maybe some other mysterious material, but put your brain to work in thinking up ways you can utilize your existing ‘stuff’ to create a new shelf to put your other stuff like books and plants and such.

Leaning Wall Pocket

Put in a pocket! Why not hide your sundries away in a pouch? It looks to have a marsupial sort of security with its leaning angle and soft sides. Plus, you know it doesn’t hurt to have a one place to put all those mittens, maps, and hats, as that’s the only place you’ll have to look when you’re ready to venture outside of your home territory. Hang it in your entryway, office, closet, or wherever you need a place to put stuff.

Refold’s Portable Cardboard Standing Desk

What’s this stack of cardboard? It’s a standing desk from Refold, and it’s “flexible, foldable, portable, affordable & 100% recyclable.” Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? If you’d like to try the standing desk option without buying an expensive desk replacement then this would be a good way to try it out. Or, maybe you just move around a lot, and need an easy-to-move surface. Either way, check it out over on Kickstarter.

Emu Heaven Lounge Chair, Set of Two

I know, I know, now’s not really the time to be highlighting outdoor furniture, but the Emu Heaven Lounge Chair could easily live indoors as well, and the price becomes way more reasonable once you grasp that it’s for a set of two. Metal mesh gives a visual lightness to the draping silhouette, making the chair a friendly modern statement wherever it ends up. Stack up to four chairs for storage.

Billy II Box

Speaking of desks and storage space for paperwork, there’s always the option of adding a roller file underneath your existing desk if there’s room. You could get a ho-hum boring rolling file from an office supply store, or you could shell out more dough for one that actually looks like a good deal of design thought went into its creation. Ethnicraft’s Universo Positivo collection has caught our eye before, and their Billy II Box stands out for its combination of solid oak and lacquered stainless steel. A large opening in the back accommodates cords (not apparent in the picture above, fyi) while one drawer provides just enough space for essentials. Need a stack of drawers instead? Consider the Oak Billy Box, an alternate version.

Asplund Tati Desk

Minimal/modern desks are hard to find, especially when storage is a necessity. I’ve been on a search for an update to my own home office desk, and while this Asplund Tati Desk lacks the file drawer I so desperately need, it does possess the slender, sleek lines and no-fuss styling that I’ve been after. So, if you’re organized enough (i.e.completely paperless) to not need several deep storage drawers, then this little desk might just be a good fit.

Aura Credenza

You’ve seen the Aura Media Unit featured here before, but this is the Aura Credenza and it might just be the answer to your storage issues. Wood veneer and lacquer mix well for contrast, and the three drawers plus an open shelf and two cabinets will hold all sorts of stuff. Removable shelves and a cord escape means it would fit well in an office or living area, hiding your printer and/or other electronics without sacrificing a streamlined, elegant look. I might just have to buy one for my own home office, especially as it’s on sale.

Stanley Stool

Can you have too many stools and side tables? Nah. This stool has a powder coated steel frame in several autumnal colors (orange, bordeaux, green, light grey, dark grey) and a natural cork seat that’s friendlier to your guests’ derrières when used as an extra seating spot. Get a couple to keep your sofa company, and know that they’re stackable should you ever need more floor space (for a dance party, of course).

Muuto Around Tables

The aim of Thomas Bentzen’s Around Table for Muuto is functional simplicity. The tables are meant to be stable, durable, and the raised edge keeps coffee cups and drinks right where they belong. As Bentzen says, “around thus forms a practical and welcoming place to gather.” A small opening in the edge accommodates power cords, and, better yet, it’s currently on sale from DWR.

Trip Cartoon Coffee Table by Seletti

A serious interior is fine for some, but a little bit of humor goes a long way to making a space feel more inviting. This coffee table by Seletti has hand drawn lines around its edges that give an appearance of being plucked straight from a cartoon. Put it next to a very severe upholstered piece and suddenly the room says ‘hey, come sit down and relax’ instead of ‘be quiet and don’t touch anything.’

Kreten Side table

This amorphous Kreten Side Table by Souda owes its shape to stretch fabric. Concrete is poured into a stretchy fabric mold, creating a slightly different form each time. With such a distinctive shape (some might say odd personality) this table could be mistaken for an art piece, but do be sure to use it now and then as a table, or else it would feel unloved. Choose between four different hues.
