FURNISHINGS

O-Nest Chair by Tord Boontje

A little something to add a pop of color to a monochromatic scheme. I think the embossed floral pattern on the plastic surface adds a light sense of humor that Mon Oncle would approve of.

Designer: Tord Boontje
Polyethylene, for indoor and outdoor use
30.25 x 26 x 27.25 inches

minui HandySitt Chair

Remember the minui HandySitt portable seat that we posted a while ago? Now it’s got a companion chair. When combined with the seat, it makes a freestanding high chair. Without the portable seat, it’s a stepstool and/or a chair for older kids. Nice.

Eastvold Classic Media Cabinet

Do you remember Kris’s post on Eastvold Custom Cabinets? They do furniture as well, and, as you can see above, it’s worth a look or two. This media cabinet has wire passages through all the shelves and partitions (and back/bottom), allowing for cable organization (very important). Plus, it’s made from solid walnut, so it’ll look a whole lot better than any assemble-it-yourself media stand.

60″ wide x 20″ tall x 20″ deep.

Domus Lounge Chair

While this chair was designed in 1946, I can’t say that I’ve seen it around that much. Now, the Domus Chair, sure, that’s no stranger, but the curvy lounge chair pictured above is brand new to my eyes. The black stained version has my name written all over it (you just can’t see it because the text is so small, ha ha).

“The characteristic Domus Lounge Chair was designed, alongside the Domus chair, for the public spaces at the Domus Academica’s student housing.”

Designed by Iilmari Tapiovaara

Feedaway Chair

Your baby stays baby-sized for only so long. Instead of spending money on a high chair that will be thrown out eventually, you could get this portable, folding cardboard one for a lot less and just recycle it with the little one has outgrown it.

Feedaway is a portable and lightweight version of the traditional feeding chair that can be pulled out for use as required and otherwise folded away flat, making it suitable for traveling and visiting where there is no baby/toddler feeding chair. Suitable for up to 18months and/or to 20kg. Feedaway is made from recycled Visy cardboard, and comes with its own 3 point safety harness and recycled cardboard carry box that is strong enough to withstand the rigours of travel by car, train or airplane. Feedaway also fits in a large suitcase.

This product has just reached the market and is only available in Australia for now (but can be shipped internationally), so stay tuned to the designer/manufacturer for availability in the states.

Bamboo Bookshelf II Hemingway

So, get this, that’s the price. There’s no ’1′ missing, nor any zeros. And why does a bamboo bookshelf that looks this cool have the reasonable price tag of $699? Apparently the retailer doesn’t use distributors; they manufacture their products on demand and sell them direct. Hmm… any takers?
