FURNISHINGS

Herman Stackable Stool

How’s this for a stackable stool/side table? It’s got a pretty friendly price and features an oval-shaped seat on a sturdy powder-coated metal frame. That and the colors will have you considering just how many you may want to add to your own abode.

Profile Folding Chair

Wait, now, are we seeing a folding chair that looks cool? That might seem like the wrong word, but look, it’s true. Clean lines and a minimal treatment makes this folding chair just right for modernists. Too bad that it’ll take several more hundred-dollar bills to get one of these rather than the standard metal chairs, but we’re used to that sort of pricing by now (right?).

Sunday Sofa

This sofa looks like a pretty perfect place for a long nap, don’t you think? Sort of like sweatpants for your living room, it’ll keep you comfortable while signaling you give approximately zero forks what other people think of you. Just kidding, this sofa isn’t nearly that bad… but it does look that comfortable.

Umbra Shift Triplet Shelf

Okay, wait, a three-tiered shelf of whitewashed wood and powder coated steel for $300, and shipping is included? Is that right? Sure looks like it. Snap one up if you need a little more storage space for your books and such.

Painted Oak Stools

Maybe you can go chop down a tree, take off all the bark, then paint it and add a sturdy woven cotton handle, but some of us have other things to do. Plus, when these stools are less than $100 and made from sustainably harvested oak, it’s awfully hard to resist such affordable seats.

Tier Side Table

Take a look at the legs of this table; see how they are on the sides rather than the corners? This cantilevered effect appears to give you a little more available surface area, or at least a more interesting appearance. There’s a matching Coffee Table too, but it deserves its own post next week.

Lisboa Cork Stool

Short on seating? This guy is a smart buy that won’t break the bank. In comparison, just take a look at the Vitra Cork Stools, which I’ve always liked, priced at $490 each. And can we talk about how cork is such great material? It’s sustainable and it has a great texture that adds warmth and interest to any space.

Offset Coffee Table and Stool

Fair warning, the price of this table may be too good to be true, as it’s the same price as the stool. Nevertheless, take a look at the three skewed, off-kilter legs; aren’t they fun? They’re just a bit off-center, which gives a playful feel to the heavy, solid form.

The Abbott Stool

This three-legged stool is comfortable in its nudity. Solid construction with tenon joints, shapely legs, and a slightly beveled top combine to make it easy on the eyes; it’d be a shame for it to hide any of its parts behind paint.

Cloud High Back Sofa

Prepare yourself, for this high-backed sofa carries a high price tag. But you can understand why, can’t you, especially when considering the feather and foam-filled cushions, slim steel legs, and tall, curved shell that envelopes you whenever you sit down to rest your weary feet. You’re sure to find that this sofa provides a quiet spot for reading or watching movies (or napping), which is a valuable thing in any busy household.

Portside Lounger

Is it just me, or does this seem like one heck of a deal? Finding outdoor loungers that are comfortable on the backside and easy on the eyes can be a daunting task for someone that appreciates a pared-down approach, so seeing a less-than-$400 option is a nice surprise. This lounger is made from sustainably sourced wood and features Textilene® fabric for extra breathability. Plus, it’s on sale, which makes the deal even sweeter (and 25% off for a limited time with code provided on site).

Elephant Chair and Table

Thank goodness someone knows how to make decent children’s furniture without resorting to gimmicks and garish colors. The wrap-around beech wood on this Elephant chair is both fun and elegant in its simplicity. Pair it with the accompanying Table ($278) for a serene spot for your little one’s artwork and puzzles.

Totem by Estudio Persona

So, don’t fret, this isn’t some silly art object with no use other than aesthetics. Yes, it is a totem, but you get actually get a suite of functional objects that can be stacked to form a “singular minimal structure.” Two stools and a tray rest upon a concrete base, creating a tall stack that takes up very little floor space. Disassemble and arrange the components to fit your needs.

Cottage Stools

How in the world has it taken so long for the Cottage Stools to hit our radar? The flat, rectangular tops plus the lovely joinery on the legs (see the tiny brass screws?) hit the right spot for everyday dining, or maybe even use the low stool as a side table in the living area or bedroom.

Caja Modular Wooden Crates

If you’re sick of stepping on toys or knocking over stacks of paper, do something about it. These modular wooden crates are easily assembled: snap them together, throw in all your miscellany and then stack them up out of the way. And, good news, they’re not expensive.
