Grand Ecart Table

This pretty crazy price-wise, but the design is worth noting. Now if someone can just figure out how to make it less expensive…

Launched at the 2008 Milan Furniture Fair, this table is designed by award-winning French architect Jean Nouvel. Grand écart means ‘the splits’ in French, and the table’s top comprises two slender sleeves of lacquered aluminum that are undetectable when the table is closed but slide apart to extend the table from 71″ to 118″w to seat up to 14 people. Requires simple assembly. Available in other sizes and in fixed length versions by special order.

W71/118 x D33.5 x H29 in

Gamper Bentwood Chairs

Made from tradtional bentwood components, these creative takes on the classic chair are something to see (and perhaps collect as funds permit?).

Martino [Gamper] studied sculpture and product design at the University of Applied Art in Vienna. He went on to do a Masters at the Royal College which he completed in 2000. His work is widely exhibited and he recently won the Wallpaper Magazine ‘Best Alchemist’ award in 2008. Behind each of his pieces is a story involving materials, techniques, people and places. He nurtures an interest in unwanted and disparate objects and by reworking furniture, which he finds on the streets, he creates mismatched families of objects.
Martino has travelled to the old Thonet factory in Croatia to see the bentwood components which he will use in his own inimitable and unexpected way. Three styles are available.

Le Clochard Home Cardboard Box Print Duvet

Check it out- this duvet is printed to look like cardboard boxes, which might provoke mixed feelings but the intention seems entirely good.

The Home Duvet lets you sleep under a cardboard box so a homeless person doesn’t have to!
This high quality duvet cover features a photographic print of a cardboard box. This produces an extremely sharp image that stays flexible because the ink is printed directly in the cotton. The image will stay crisp after frequent washing.
The cotton has a thread count of 144 threads per square inch, so it’s soft to the touch virtually non-iron. The duvet cover is produced in Pakistan and child labour is not used.
30% of the gross profits go to Centrepoint, the UK charity for homeless young people aged 16-25 (charity number 292411). Every night Centrepoint provides support and housing for 800 vulnerable homeless young people

Cherish Chair

I’ve never felt all that excited about the color yellow, yet on this chair and a few other recent posts (like this lamp and the embroidery on this bedding) it seems to be growing on me…it just might be a great color accent for your otherwise monochrome room (if you have one, that is).

Reminiscent of a cherished design from the past, this solid timber chair displays a pared down silhouette – a perfect complement for today’s contemporary settings. Available in yellow lacquer.

Cross Round Table Glass

Today’s the last day of DWR’s Anniversary Sale. If you’ve had your eye on anything, it’s a good time to buy with the free shipping and discounts.

A sculpturally unique and compact dining solution, the Cross Round Table (2007) features an asymmetrical solid oak base that’s constructed of two interlocking pieces. Designed by Matthew Hilton, the Round Table possesses the same modernist balance of form and function as his other pieces like the Profile Chair and Cross Credenza. The pedestal base allows for unimpeded leg room and supports a .5″-thick tempered glass top. Where the top and base meet, four neoprene pads keep the glass from being scratched. The Cross Round Table seats four comfortably.

Miami Sofa

This reminds me of a much more expensive design but I can’t quite put my finger on which one. For the price, it’s an interesting shape and design, yet sadly it sports a rather unfortunate fabric.
(update: it was the Moel sofa by Ligne Roset that I was thinking of…thanks to Edgar for figuring that out.)

Sink down into this plush off white sofa and you may find yourself languishing in your contemporary living room longer than you ever imagined. The ribbed stitching adds visual interest, texture and an aura of Deco glam. Don’t forget the matching chair! Once again, modern design, style and comfort help you create your little bit of heaven on Earth. Padded solid wood frame. Fabric, in easy-care vinyl.

Teak Rough Storage Cupboard

For anyone that loves the idea of keeping tabletop items secured away in an actual cupboard, this collection hits the mark for any modernist. It could be the poorer man’s option of the Bulthaup b2 (though poor is a relative term in this case).

Teak Rough is a new collection that combines the rough texture of natural teak and the sleek surface of stainless steel. Combined they add modern and timeless design to any room in the house. The teak rough storage cupboard measures 46″ x 18″ x 63″ tall.

Herman Miller® Enchordâ„¢ Desk

This is an excellent example of a desk that will keep you on top of clutter, namely because there’s no place to stash it except in neat piles along the lower shelf. If that seems entirely implausible, the handy mobile cabinet keeps the clean lines yet has ample storage for your odds and ends.

Sometimes simple white bed linens is all a room needs, but in this case the circle embroidery provides just enough detail to ward off any accusations of being boring.

Sanford Burrows’ streamlined designs are meticulously embroidered onto their linens, adding texture and warmth to each piece. The base is an Egyptian cotton fabric produced by one of Italy’s leading textile companies to ensure the finest quality and craftsmanship.

While techniques are traditional, Sanford Burrows designs are decidedly modern. White space and clean lines don’t overpower, but become an integral part of your design landscape.

Modern Farm Table

I have had a design crush on the Big Sur dining table from Crate and Barrel ($1399) for over a year now, but I think the West Elm modern farm table ($599) is a good contender and is a lot cheaper.

Now, buyer beware, the one from Crate and Barrel is made of solid wood and the one from West Elm is just veneer, and I’ve heard that the West Elm veneers are notoriously thin, so if you have kids and pets and expect the table to hold up to some serious wear and tear, I recommend the Crate and Barrel one. If you live alone then the one from West Elm may do just fine.
