Tavares Chair

Wow, when I saw this at ICFF I thought it would be way more expensive than it is (because usually all super modern sleek chairs command a hefty price tag).

Developed by request of a landmark Lisbon restaurant bearing the same name, the Tavares chair is an object of thoughtful geometric lines, a “Shell” as a chair. Built in black steel, its forms reveal the the simplicity of an object that integrates with its surrounding architecture defining a common space identity.

Dimensions: H25/14.6 x W22.8 x 28 in (H64/37 x W58 x D71 cm)

$1,459.00, available at TemaHome

That’s right, $64 for a pine coffee table that has collapsible legs. My love for MUJI is bottomless.

The name “MUJI” is derived from the Japanese phrase “Mujirushi Ryohin,” meaning “No Brand Goods.” Over the last 20 years, they have developed a worldwide following with a guiding philosophy that emphasizes innovative and simple materials, processes, and packaging. The resulting products are streamlined, environmentally friendly, and beautiful in their simplicity. Made of pine with collapsible legs, this low coffee table is suitable for any décor.

ModKat Litter Box

Yes, $180.00 is a lot of money, but if you have a cat (or cats), you know a solution to the unsightly litter box is well worth a good stack of bills, even if they are twenties.

Who says a litter box can’t embrace form as well as function, work with your décor and provide an unparalleled experience for your cat. Not us. The ModKat Litter Box is the answer. Its modern design compliments any room, while the enclosed base and “rooftop access” allows your cat the privacy needed to do his or her business.

Mate Sofa

This sofa is so incredibly comfortable. It has excellent proportions and fits the curve of your lower back perfectly. I would completely recommend it if it’s within your budget. (Also, there’s a floor sample on sale at the Marylebone location in London*; I think it was marked at £2,000.00 and looked a little more red than the orange pictured here.)

Launched at the 2008 Milan Furniture Fair, Robin Rizzini’s Mate sofa is hugely inviting. Its soft cushions make it wonderful to curl up in, while it remains equally comfortable to sit upright in, thanks to seat cushions that are not too deep and a back that is just the right height to be supportive. It has a solid wood frame with elastic belts, concealed feet and a fully removable cover. It is available in other fabrics and as a modular system in a wide variety of sizes and configurations. Spare covers are also available to order.

W94 x D35.5 x H26.5 in.

$4,995.00, Buy it here or here (£2,900.00 – £5,800.00).

Upcycle Ottoman

How do you feel about feed bags as upholstery? It sounds sort of awful (doesn’t it?) but I actually like the way these ottomans look.

The Upcycle Ottoman is upholstered using a supply of surplus jute bags previously used to transport organic coffee beans. The durable bags, which would otherwise be thrown away, have been repurposed to make an original accent piece. The jute features screen-printed stencils and logos which identified the original goods, making each ottoman completely unique. Bench-Made in Canada.

18d x 18w x 16h (inches)
