Oscar Sofa

This sofa looks oddly modern despite the traditional silhouette. Maybe it’s the fabric done in a Kvadrat Wool, or maybe it’s just that more traditional frames are back in style nowadays.

Elegantly shaped European hardwood frame with jute webbing and hessian straps. The Upholstery is Kvadrat Molly Wool and cushions are feather-filled. Walnut stained beech compose the feet. Despite all this, it is a truly comfortable seat.

What a lovely media storage cabinet. It’s solid walnut (or cherry, if you prefer) with a stainless steel base.

Moooi Dickies Chair by Anthony Kleinepier

Seeing how beanbags have become quite acceptable in the living area, why not a beanbag-ish chair that’s shaped like a… well, you know. This is the first I’ve seen it on sale, but as noted, the price is limited to stock on hand.

With the Dickies, Anthony Kleinepier likes to raise more questions than answers, so the expectations and codes of our daily environment become vague. This makes people wake up to the fact that they are entitled to an interpretation of their own. It makes you think it is time again to use all our senses and not only believe in what we see. The Dickies Chair create a casual contemporary look.

Lazy Bastard Armchair by Bertjan Pot for Montis

What a Lazy Bastard. If you bought this chair, you could say that all the time, and if someone got mad and started to punch you, you could say, “Wha?! I was talking about the armchair you’re sitting in!! WTF?!”…Wouldn’t that be fun? Basically a bean bag on legs, this armchair looks super comfortable because it is. May I recommend the black color instead of the suspiciously-seventies-inspired pea green color?

Available by special order only.

Matryoshka End Table by Rich Brilliant and Willing

Rich Brilliant and Willing is one of my new favorite design houses and the trio are definitely ones to watch. Their new Matryoshka table featureswood slats with each seam being overlapped by the one next to it.

The table gets its name because each of the three sizes (End, Cocktail & Coffee) – can nest inside one another, like Matryoshka Dolls.

Available in white, black, red or green.

Oblique Strategies

Hold on to your hat, because MoMA has just put out Peter Norton Family Christmas Art Projects, and there are so many truly wonderful things that you might be overwhelmed. Available in limited quantities, each ‘art object’ was donated by Peter Norton to benefit P.S. 1.

This particular post (more to follow over the next week or two) shows Brian Eno’s ‘Oblique Strategies’, which are strategy cards with phrases that help users get out of creative roadblocks. (If you have an iPhone or iPod, there’s also an Oblique Strategies App available to download free from iTunes.)

In 1975, the celebrated British musician, producer, and visual artist, Brian Eno, together with collaborators, addressed the challenge of breaking out of creative roadblocks by writing a series of evocative phrases he dubbed “worthwhile dilemmas.” These phrases, which suggest approaches to an impasse from another direction, became known as Oblique Strategies. Originally published as a deck of cards in an austere format, they became an underground hit and sold out in three revised editions.

Momantai Etched Stainless Steel Top Tables

Second hand tables get a new lease of life with etched stainless steel tops. It’s a stellar idea, and I sort of love the traditional lace-work design paired with steel. As each piece is unique, prices depend on size and condition; emailing Momantai Design directly will give you a better estimate. If you’re not all that into second hand furniture, maybe you’ll prefer the Praios table (shown bottom) with its brand spanking new thin metal frame.

Classic lace-work translated by means of modern production technology; by etching the pattern in stainless steel, the authentic lace of Plauener Spitze gets a new graphic interpretation. A collaboration of Roel van Hove of Etsprit and Ulrike Jurklies of Momantai Design

Recycled Tables Rondra, Firun, Rahja, Phex (top): between 100 and 600
Table Praios, 190 x 80 cm (bottom): 3521 for the the brushed finish, and 4110 for the polished surface.

Delivery should take roughly 8 weeks depending on the destination.

Also, keep in mind shipping costs (from The Netherlands) might bump the price up quite a bit, so bear that in mind.
