Cubo Coffee Table

Hidden storage space in a coffee table is absolutely perfect for those eyesores (otherwise known as remotes) lying around the living room.

Elegant and asymmetrical, the Cubo Coffee Table offers not only a large surface space, but also neatly concealed storage. The Table’s rich, warm American butternut veneer is expertly applied and has a visible grain pattern. The storage space is accessed by rotating the larger “leg” outward, revealing a spacious spot to stash magazines, books or remotes. Storage space is lined in red Spinneybeck® Recycled leather, offering a compelling material contrast to the neutral tones of the wood. Made in U.S.A.

Monopod Chair by Jasper Morrison

On Jasper Morrison’s site, this chair is listed as made from “precision milled blocks of recycled wine-bottle corks” and upholstered in leather. It’s also noted as a limited edition, but I found no mention of that on the retail sites.

Jasper Morrison’s Monopod is a sculptural piece, vaguely reminiscent of primordial stone or wooden objects. The Monopod stands sturdily, tapering with an elegant curve to a wedge-shaped backrest. As a small visitor armchair, the Monopod is a companion for sofas and larger armchairs, and in public areas thanks to its solidity can be used in lounges and reception areas. The structure of the armchair, with its plastic shell upholstered on the inside means that the Monopod retains its precise shape even if used for lengthier periods and is very comfortable.

materials: polyethylene carcass, polyurethane foam seat and backrest upholstery.

Also available through here, but priced at $2,700.00.

Naviglio Sofa

So, a while ago (back in ’07), I posted this sofa saying if I was filthy rich, I would buy it. Now, let’s fast forward to this past weekend, where I happen to be in London walking through a shop and saw this same sofa at 20% off. Even with the exchange rate, that’s roughly $2,200 off what it currently retails for in the US. I am not filthy rich (repeat that again), but I could not help but buy it. It’s modern, classic, comfortable, non-pet-hair-clingy, wine-spill-proof, and I love it. I vow to keep it, sit in and sleep on it at every available opportunity for as long as I shall live.

Bentwood Chair from the Well Considered Collection

For those of you that keep on top of new products in the marketplace you’ll know that I’m a bit behind in featuring these chairs. For those of you that don’t care, you’ll be glad to know the price is still just as right for your seating needs.

This classic bentwood shape has been given a completely new lease of life by its glossy green or red lacquer providing a statement chair with a strong flavor of the 60s at a great price.

Hollow 3-seat Sofa

Shazam! Check out this snazzy seating option from the lovely Ms. Uroquiola. While perhaps the thinner cushioning seems to be more fit for an office or reception area sofa than a jump/sink/settle-in-to-watch-a-movie-type sofa, the lines and style are spectacular.

Hollow is a modular compact seating collection for reception, lounge and meeting applications. The concave plastic panels enhance the appearance of the lightness and give the collection its name. Numerous variations in finishes and dimensions allow the Hollow collection to be specified in diverse variations with alternative monochromatic or contrasting aesthetic options.

Design Patricia Uroquiola, 2006.
Steel, polyurethane, plastic material, leather.
Made in Italy by B&B Italia.

Four Degrees by MicroWorks

I love this so much it hurts my feelings. It’s still currently in prototype, but frankly I’ve been bored with all the available options for shelving so I wanted to post something a little more exciting. From a Tokyo based design firm called MicroWorks–the designers discovered that books tilted at a 4 degree angle don’t accumulate dust as quickly as books which are stored flat. Whatever the reason for the tilt, I love it.

Twisted Console by Dylan Gold

Hmm, although the price is a bit dear, this off-kilter console would add a tiny bit of crazy to your room, in a good way…though I suppose it’s up to you to decide if you need any more of that or not.

‘twisted’ is a console table, a wall mounted display cabinet, a vertical bookshelf – or all three. Four in-line boxes frame the twisted one, creating a subtle focal point. The box in question is offset on 3 different axes, perfectly intersecting the adjacent cubes, defying convention. Specifically designed to add just enough chaos to your all-too-regimented world.

70w x 15h x 32h (with stand)
Material: Solid, vertical edge-grain bamboo, Danish oil and wax finish

Bottoni Slim

I love the slim arms on the Bottoni line by Marcel Wanders. It really adds an edge of sophistication.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Bottoni collection, the concept is that you can change the look of a piece by switching out “plaids” by attaching them to the buttons. Plaids can be attached to each model using Buttons and are available in 5 unique patterned fabrics.

The Bottoni collection is available in three different models: standard, slim and shelf. You can order each model in four different sizes.

24.4″ h | 35.8″ w | 33.8″ d

Wonder Wall Cabinet

The Wonder Wall Cabinet is perfectly modern storage which would be best suited under a wall mounted tv or in an office space, but could just as easily be used in a bedroom for clothing storage. Available with a drop-down door cabinet or two-shelf option.

Teepee Dining Table

If you’re looking for a round dining table, you might have found it. A standard 4 person size, this oak base is simple enough to stand the test of time without breaking the bank.

Four solid natural white oak legs starburst from a central axis under clear glass. Recessed base for lots of legroom and up to 4 chairs. Clear bumpers protect glass.

Pirwi Arbol Tables

So, straight off, take note that the prices are separate for the base and glass tops, because you can most likely source a glass or wood top for less than the retailer’s quote (which they actually recommend considering shipment costs). That said, these are exceptionally affordable for the design quality and would most likely be an extremely smart purchase for your home.

The coffee tables are assembled from eight identical pieces and feature a system of central joining that imitates the trunks and branches of trees, where the strength of the whole comes from distributing the work amongst all the limbs. These pieces can be used with either a circular glass top, or a birch plywood surface. The Árbol collection won second place at the National Design Biennial 2007, Mexico City.

Designer: Emiliano Godoy, 2007

Modern Tree Trunk Stool

Add a tree trunk stool to your home and wait for the squirrels and mice to start helping you clean while they merrily sing along to your favorite tune. Maybe that won’t happen (and maybe it will), but the finish on this stool helps modernize the tree trunk look so that it could easily be at home amongst a contemporary room setting.

This striking contemporary stool is entirely hand crafted [and] features lifelike detail. Made with ceramic which is glazed in matte gunmetal. It has a very elegant finish for a rustic motif but fits equally well in a contemporary home.

Size: 18.50″ h x 15.50″ w x 15.50″ d
Material: ceramic with matte gunmetal finish.
