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. (To get a comparison of some of the other pieces, take a look at Shadowy Arm Chair, Shadowy Arm Chaise or Nopolou Rocking Chaise.) You can rest assured that any of the chaises will do fine either indoors or out as they’re all made from handwoven nylon.

Fold Shelf

Take a look at this shelf: half wall sculpture and half functional storage object, it’s made from one flat sheet of metal which is then hand folded along perforated cuts, giving a stitched detail along the edges. There’s also two orientations you can use, which gives you an option to mix it up every so often.

Neutra Boomerang Chair

House Industries is now taking deposits for the second edition of the Neutra Boomerang Chair. I’m sure you can see the boomerang-shaped veneered plywood frame, from which it gets its name, but for historical relevance you might be interested to know that Richard Neutra designed this chair for the interiors of the Channel Heights Housing Project (San Pedro, California) in 1942.

Available in maple or walnut with black or natural webbing.

13 Mater Gymnasium Pine Edition

The graphic colors and lines of the gym court sure make an eye catching pattern on this eco-friendly cabinet. Originally this series was created in 2008 using old floor boards (see Old Floor Board Edition, which is perhaps my favorite) and more recently Mater has added the Pine and Oak Editions. Plus, you might be happy to hear that Mater donates a percentage of profits to promoting sports in developing countries.

Soren Rose for Mater
Renewable pine and controlled Danish oak with water-based fixatives and varnishes.

Pretty decent price for some extra modern seating, don’t you think? The ‘grellow’ might be a nice color pop for your dining area, especially if it’s feeling a bit drab and in need of some summer refreshment.
