Leather Chaise Chair

The vintage look of this leather chaise is slightly reminiscent of a baseball glove…not a bad thing, I might add.

Why be a coach potato when you can be a chaise frittata? With a stainless steel frame and quilted leather seat inspired by the 1950s Barcelona chair, this wonderful chaise has been pre-conditioned to achieve an invitingly worn, vintage look.

Convertible Compact Desk

This is a perfect solution for anyone short on space- you simply slide the top panel out when you need more work surface.

What looks like a 30″ cabinet converts to a 55″ full-size desk, making it a clever solution for studio apartments and multipurpose rooms. A quick slide of its top panel reveals hard-working amenities. When open, the top of the cabinet reveals generous storage space for a laptop, plus cubbies with removable dividers to stow paper clips, rubber bands and other smalls. Cord cutouts in back let you charge iPods, laptop and cell phones. Below are a storage drawer and one letter- and legal-size file.

Svedese Fortune Chair

I’m not sure what type of Swedish fortune shall befall you if you should happen to purchase this chair, but if you buy 6 of them, you can save 15%, and if you order by September 16 you’ll also get free shipping, so that’s a sort of fortune, isn’t it?

The Fratelli Tominaga, designers of our Coco Chair, discovered the 40-year-old prototype for the Svedese Chair (pronounced svee-day-see) in the kitchen of a home in Udine, Italy. Still in fine condition, the chair appeared to be Swedish in origin but was constructed in Italy, although the brothers were never able to find a record of the designer. The Tominagas have brought the Svedese Chair back into production, maintaining the solid hardwood frame, the seat back’s distilled folk form and updating the upholstery in elegant, hardworking Danish wool. The result is a mid-century design reimagined for the 21st-century. Assembly required.

Kar Chair (Slices)

Man, at first glance it looked like it was $150 per chair (which would be way too good to be true); it takes around 5 slices to make a full-sized seat, so that makes it around $750 per chair. Darn it.

This innovative line of furniture allows you to endlessly mix and match towards a design of any color and size. Each “slice” clicks into one another and can support up to 300 pounds of weight. The material, Arpro, is lightweight and weatherproof.

Made of Arpro (expanded polypropylene)
