FURNISHINGS

Tavares Chair, White

Just yesterday I updated the post of this chair from last year, as the price had increased from just under $700.00 to $1,459.00. Now, I’ve no idea how MoMA has the price of $825.00, but it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than $1,500.00. Plus, knowing that it can go outdoors as well is all the more reason to snap it up.

Designer: Marco Sousa Santos
Suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
25h x 27.5w x 23″d

Soorikian Long Console

Finding a modern media stand is no easy task. I know this personally, of course, and am quite familiar with the many requirements needed to house those precious electronic boxes that magic images up on the tv screen. Dimensions, ventilation, wire management, and above all, how it looks… all these things are important. So, that’s why this console caught my eye. It’s certainly easy on the eyes, with a lovely walnut finish and a low profile, with slats to allow for ventilation (and visual interest). The compartments can be fitted with a drawer or a space specifically for electronics.

Walnut finish.
84″ L x 19.75″ H x 18″ D
Pricing around $3,800.00.

Marble Coffee Table (match off)

At first glance, these two pictures might appear to be of the same table taken in different lighting, but perhaps the more discerning can pick out a few tiny details that sets one apart from the other. There’s not much, mind you, but there is a difference, most noticeably in the price.

Can you guess which one is $900 and which is $300?

Answer and info on both below.

Cork Media Console

We’ve been fans of Iannone Design for quite some time now, so it’s no surprise that this low storage unit would eventually have its turn in the spotlight. Just under 2 feet, it’s low enough to fit a good sized flat screen above or on it without sacrificing a reasonable viewing height, and the cork doors and plywood core edges add just the right amount of natural elements to balance out the tech.

Two compartments (each with an adjustable shelf) and wire/vent holes in the maple back.

Designer/Manufacturer: Iannone Design
Material: Amber bamboo/cork/maple plywood.
70″l x 20″d x 23.5″h

Clarity Color Glass Tables

This looks like something straight out of Verner Panton’s portfolio, doesn’t it? Pink, orange, and yellow glass is combined to form these colorful ‘color-wheel’ tables. Now, if only they made this in a lucite-ish version at, let’s say, a fifth of the cost, then maybe it’d fit nicer into all of our budgets.

Spark Lounge Chair

This affordable (and colorful) lounge chair is from the same designer that did the Aeron® and Chadwick chairs (both task chairs for those of you that didn’t know already). Surprised? I am. With all the tilts and levers and stuff on the latter two, this chair seems quiet and unassuming in comparison, except for the color choices, of course. It’s lightweight (polypropylene) and stackable, which makes it a good choice for a multi-purpose space.

Designed by Don Chadwick.
Stacks six high.
30.5″h x 25.5″w x 25.5″d

Lamino Chair

Pretty much every time I walk by the Skandium Store near my flat I see this chair. It’s lovely in person, just as it seems in the photos, with quiet lines and impeccable craftsmanship, plus it’s comfortable (as all lounge chairs should be). Voted the Twentieth Century’s ‘Best Swedish Furniture Design’, it’s sure to be a piece that you won’t get tired of.

Dune Grande Lounge

This fiberglass shell chair looks like a mid century classic went through some kind of warp zone, doesn’t it? At just about 4 feet wide, it’ll not go unnoticed as a seating option, that’s for sure. And don’t fret if you’re short on space; there’s a slightly smaller (and less stretched) version available (shown below).

Dune Grande Lounge: $1,895.00 (49.25w x 34d x 24.5h inches)

Pianotable

You may be inviting your musical friends and family over more often if you had this dining table with a built-in electric piano. I have a feeling that food and drink may not mix well with electronic equipment, so I’m hoping that that the internal keyboard mechanism is shielded from the inevitable spilled wine resulting from an impromptu post-dinner rock session. Of course, very few of you would have these worries once you look at the price tag.

The Pianotable is made to order, available by contacting the designer at [email protected].

Designer: George Bohle
Material: oakwood, electric piano
