Palissade Collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec

All right, now, we’re in outdoor furniture shopping mode, thanks to the summer heat. If the Hot Mesh Lounge featured yesterday didn’t quite hit the spot, maybe you’ll like the Palissade Lounge Chair by Ronan + Erwan Bouroullec. Why? It’d be easier to ask why not, because then we could agree on your ignorance or lack of design sense* and then our conversation would be over.

Hot Mesh Lounge Chair

Ooo, the Hot Mesh collection just got a new sibling: a lounge chair. You know what’s great about that? It not only looks modern and unfussy, it’s very affordable. I mean, come on, $299 for a cool lounge chair? It’s a no-brainer. Oh, and it’s stackable and suitable for indoor or outdoor use. If we had a little celebratory ‘great deal!’ ribbon jpg to add to certain images, I’d add it without a second thought.

Crosscut Trestle Legs

Don’t get too excited; that price you see to the right is for the trestle legs only, not the whole dining table. But, hey, maybe you’re excited about that price for just the trestle legs, as that means you can add whatever top you wish and have a great, portable option for your work or for feeding your face. Two pieces of laser-cut steel and six oak legs make up the Crosscut Trestle Legs set, and, as you can see from the product photo, the cylindrical legs fit neatly into the steel. Update: Now on sale from the Dwell Store for $309.99 until quantities last.

LBR-2 Book Bench

Do I really need to explain how this bench is worth every cent of its price tag? Seating + Books = (!). It has an angled shelf for books (why, yes, I am nerding out a little bit over that detail). That will give you a perfect place to keep your favorites, tucked away under a handy seating surface.

Anodised Side Table by Max Lamb

Reduce a side table down to its essentials, and you’d get something similar to the Anodised Side Table by Max Lamb. Made with three sheets of aluminium plate (or aluminum, if you prefer) locked together with four countersunk socket bolts, the low table is left unfinished to highlight the material’s “inherent beauty”. There’s a larger Anodised Coffee Table as well as a wonderful Cobalt and Gold color.

Yeh Wall Table

If you’re short on space, you’ll want to take a look at this Yeh Wall Table by Taiwan-based designer, Kenyon Yeh. Inspired by the position of someone sitting against a wall with their feet placed firmly on the ground, the table rests against the wall with the help of a small, upturned 90-degree angle on its edge. It won’t take up much room, yet will provide just enough space for the essential lamp, stack of books, or coffee cup.

Moon Tables

Sleek! These Moon Tables from Ethnicraft’s Universo Positivo collection strikes the right note with their solid oak tops and lacquered stainless steel sides. The slight rim helps corral any miscellany- not that you have any- and the materials give a refined feel to a rather simple, no-frills design.

Last Stool Steel

A splattered steel stool by Max Lamb? Yes, please. Hem has a variety of colors, so you’re sure to find something you love. The polished copper version is especially cool, but it’s sold out. Boo-hoo. Thank goodness there are so many other options.

Tio Easy Chair

With all this talk of enjoying the outdoors, we might as well discuss the seating arrangements. After all, you can only spend so much time on a picnic blanket before your back gets tired. Hopefully, if you have an outdoor area attached to your home, you have some sort of comfortable seating already, but, if not, you might want to take a look at Massproductions’ indoor-outdoor Tio Easy Chair. It’s stackable and and will withstand all sorts of weather as it’s made with polyester powder-coated galvanized wire. That said, no one will question it if you move it indoors, as it could stand proud as a sculptural seating option inside the home just as well as it would outside.

Kingstown Barstool

The Kingstown Barstools from Studio Dunn are just as sleek as they were when they first hit the market a few years ago. Similar to the popular Conventry Stool, the barstools combine traditional handmade joinery with contemporary manufacturing methods to create a seating option with incredibly graceful lines. And, as a tip of the hat to their eco-friendly credentials, it’s worth mentioning that Studio Dunn works with high-quality domestic timber from sustainable forests.

MG501 Cuba Chair

Say ‘folding chair’ and you immediately think of the cheap aluminum sort found at various community gatherings. Lucky you, just because your home is spatially challenged doesn’t mean you have to resort to those ugly things; take a look at the MG501 Cuba Chair by Morten Gottler. It’s light and flexible, and can easily fold up for storage- in a closet or hung on a wall. Natural cotton webbing straps provide support and comfort.

Woodieful Chair

Here’s a stool that doubles as a table/nightstand or a book/magazine stand. How so? Well, depending on which way you flip it, the function changes. One side has a flat, sturdy surface to park your backside, while another side has slots that allow for records, books, or magazines to stand up straight. There’s quite a few options, and there’s no doubt you’ll have some fun moving it from room to room to fit your needs.
