Relax Chair

Here’s a great little accent chair at a great price.

Few chairs cut a slim, low-angled profile while having the kind of wide seat support that lets you settle in. Fewer still manage to be slender and inviting without hogging space. The European-style Andrew Relaxer does it all with a lineup of unbeatable qualities, from gently curving lines, rich chocolate bi-cast leather to an elegant profile suitable for any room.

Flex Sofa

If you ignore how this sofa looks like it’s in a CB2 showroom, you can almost sort of picture it in a real home as a really cool sofa/convertible bed.

Convertible three-position seater/sleeper is the am/pm solution for the space-challenged or the friendly out-of-towner. By day it’s an upright but comfy lounge that can also angle back 45 degrees for TV/reading. Shut-eye rolls around, the back flips all the way down and voilĂ …a worthy platform bed with real pocketed coil mattress innersprings that sleeps two. Tailored bright neutral in olivine textured weave channeled with a baseball topstitch and neat flange along the edge.

Ronde Armchair

$50 for the white stackable Ronde Armchair. Not bad…

Its rounded spoon shape is outlined in tubular steel, and two simple arches swoop gracefully to serve as both legs and armrests.

Kast Tall Storage

While this might be high on the price scale, it sure has some nice attributes: the very large size and the odd (but good) door colors.

Kast is a storage unit that is modular in structure. Supplemented by two simple wooden crates and a further basic module, a shelf/wall cupboard combination arises. Van Severen paid special attention to the color for the sliding doors, which not only emphasize Kast’s elegant and yet seemingly classical proportions, but also give it a fresh and optimistic sense.
Kast tall storage is offered with eight sliding doors in pink, dark green, bronze-grey, dark blue, sulphur yellow and bright white powder-coated sheet aluminum.
