Box Stool

Big Game is one to watch out for these days; they’ve got a great collection of home furnishings that’s both interesting and edgy (and not too terribly expensive).

Light and versatile, the Box stool has one hole in the center of the seat to make it easy to move around.

Pallet Chair and Table

The Pacific Coast Highway in California, of course.
