FURNISHINGS

Relief Chair

Hmm, while I can think of a few heavy-hitters that I’d rather spend 4 G’s on, I can pretty much guarantee that none of them are eco-friendly. Plus, the pattern on this chair made from stacking felt pieces is superb and gives a very luxe look.

The Relief Chair remasters the art of sculpting, using digital fabrication and solid, renewable materials. Materials commonly associated with seating – upholstery, foam products and toxic finishes – are all supplanted with thick sheets of natural wool felt, adhered with non-toxic, water-based adhesives. The precision-cut contours of each piece of felt are aggregated into sinuous yet comfortable forms. The cascading edges create an integral pattern with both a visual and tactile effect.

manufacture: Mickus Projects, Brooklyn, NY
materials: Industrial wool felt, stainless steel, water-based adhesive
dimensions: 36.5″ tall x 32″ wide x 24″ deep

Zanotta Club Sofa and Armchair

So, once you get over the slight sticker shock, take a look at just how cool these outdoor/indoor pieces are…I love how simple the frame is, and how light the pieces appear.

Designed for indoor and outdoor use, the Club Sofa and Armchair are very versatile pieces of furniture. The steel internal structure has been painted so this set is suitable for outdoor use. Weave in PVC thread with nylon internal reinforcement, in the shade of brown, the Club Sofa and Armchair feature a unique design. Available with or without a seat cushion, these two items are perfect for lounging. -allmodern.com

Sofa (25.6″h x 75.2″w x 31.1″d): $4,600.00
Armchair (25.6″h x 33.07″w x 31.1″d): $2,350.00

Piazza Sofa (Sand/White)

I’ve posted the Piazza Sofa in the kelp color before, but this sandy color with the white pillow definitely has more of a sea breeze feel about it, and that’s always nice to have during hot summer months.

Now our long, lean, low to the floor unicushion goes two-tone. Pale khaki-ish frame/seat contrasts full-length pillow in super clean white-white. The price for such comfort? Amazingly low considering its high-end nature: Euro sleek profile in textured, tight 100% cotton weave has an air (or is that heir?) of the Hamptons about it.

Spindle Chair

Update: on sale for $49.00…snap ‘em up while quantities last.

$99 for a sturdy white chair…not bad. (It reminds me a little of the Mademoiselle Rocking Chair, for obvious reasons.)

Modern spindle plays with scale in fresh white lacquer. It’s everything a chair should be: architecture, function, simplicity…and it makes us smile. Immediately at home with metal, woods, minimal, heirlooms. Eco-friendly solid rubberwood.

Egg Chairs (Outdoor)

Whoa, talk about style. I was reminded* of how cool these chairs are when I posted the Ace Hotel in the travel section the other day. There was a picture on their site with one of these chairs on the patio and it definitely caught my eye.

*(editorial note: Let me start by saying I love these chairs. But, by any chance, have any of you been to Mexico and/or Costa Rica and seen very similar chairs on the porches of very humble homes? I know I have, because I’ve been tempted to stop the car and ask how much they cost down there and how much shipping would be…maybe next time I will.)

Web dining table

Check out this crazy steel web base on this dining table. Too bad it’s expensive (I guess because of the teak top?).

Hexagon Executive Lounge Chair

Hmm. It’s appealing in a strange (and big and low to the ground) sort of way. Plus, there’s a ‘make an offer’ option which means you can get it for less than the listed price…(very curious as to just how low they’d go). Also, if you’re feeling brave: an Egg Chair in Rattan. Yep, you read it right, rattan.

Comfort meets stability with a touch of class with the Hexagon Lounge Chair. Great for rest and relaxation yet adds style and a sense of power through modernity to any interior space.

Stuffed Stools and Cabinet

Made from steel plate, these stools and cabinet have a semi-cartoonish feel about them and in this particular case, that’s a very good thing.

Gentleman’s chamber 1953 is a fusion of nature and interior, traditional elements from a gentleman’s chamber are brought back to their essence and are reinterpreted from the point of view of the animals. This stool is made out of tree trunks or that how it appears to be. On a closer inspection you will notice they are actually made out of steel plate.

A steal of a deal at $149.00, this rocker is surprisingly super sleek.

No, we’re not off our rockers—this price is for real. Minimalist grey-on-grey rocks back in a swoop of grey polymesh over grey rust-resistant powdercoated aluminum frame. -CB2

OTO100 Storage System

I think I love this.

PIL BREDAHL ON THE DESIGN: “The storage system is made for the modern nomad and inspired by the fact that we move more often in our lives than ever before. It can be separated and assembled very easily. It has a clear sculptural value and you can put it in the formations you like best. When it’s not used for books, magazines, clothes, etc., It can lay on the floor, each ring inside the bigger ring creating a beautiful pattern.”

No doubt there will many differing opinions on these two items, but hopefully a few of you can appreciate the color and pattern of these antique sari throws.

Gus Modern Corner Block Dining Table

I have absolutely no idea why this particular retailer has a price of $870.00 on this table when other places have it at $1,495.00. Is it a mistake? Am I missing something like a defect listed or a floor model sale?

Featuring distinctive L-shaped legs and a warm European oak grain, the Corner Block Dining Table defines sleek design and solid construction. With its generous size and clean lines, it looks great in any contemporary dining space.
