FURNISHINGS

Hans Tables by Jonathan Adler

Whoa, these sure cost a lot more than I was expecting. The perspective is a bit off since I spliced the three together in one image, but you can see how they have a lot of presence, mostly due to the shape and patina, but also because they are solid brass. That means they probably would break your toe if you ran into them rather than toppling over.

Monumental Modernism.
Three striking silhouettes in a blackened finish inspired by the work of Jonathan’s favorite potter, Hans Coper. Made from solid brass with a black patina and hand-rubbed edges.

Blackened brass, Hand rubbed brass edges

Agung Chair

I’ve no idea why the retailer in Europe has it marked so much lower than the US one, but this chair is quite lovely. Maybe it’s not the best choice for anyone short on floorspace, but its curves certainly command a long glance and look to hold a person comfortably.

Austere lines and precise craftsmanship make this dining set a serious consideration if you’re in the market for updating your dining area. Take special note of the Isometric Chair; it’s incredibly lovely.

Designed to accompany the Isometric Chair, the Isometric Table is a study in reduction and opposition. The design explores the intersection of two-dimensional planes flowing together to create a three-dimensional form.

Kikkerland Erasers- Rhino, Gorilla and Polar Bear

I’d buy these just to look at. Something about actually using one of these as an eraser and seeing it lose shape and disappear bit by bit would be sort of sad, which I suppose is the whole point.

The Rhino, Gorilla and Polar Bear have become the endangered through negative Human activity. Kikkerland would like these magnificent animal to be around for a long time to come so 2% of sales will be donated to helping endangered species through the Center for Biological Diversity. Made from safe PVC free TPR.

Fulton Desk, Bookcase, Media Console

This is bare bones minimal with a tiny bit of rustic wood to warm it up. I’d say the prices are reasonable, or at least they don’t hurt the eyes.

Fulton’s minimal lines and mixed materials make a streamlined, rustic-modern statement. The warmth of the richly-figured, reclaimed teak veneer top contrasts beautifully with the industrial black metal frame, finished in three steps for an oxidized effect.

ODEChairs by Jolyon Yates

These sculptural chairs sure pack a visual punch. They almost look more ‘art’ than ‘chair’ with their curves and evident workmanship, though I’m sure the comfort is up to par.

An ODE to the elements, – Breeze, also known as the Savannah Rocker is a comfortable reclined rocking chair on which to savour and reclaim time. Whilst unashamedly modern, It’s flowing surfaces lead the eye on an easy journey into a slower era.
The Savannah Rocker is sculpted from birch and finished in specialist PU satin lacquer.
This brings out the rich wood tones and provides maximum protection whilst maintaining a simple natural finish.
