FURNISHINGS

Scandia Series

I’m a little bit in love with this series by Hans Brattud.

The iconic Scandia Series was designed by Hans Brattud in 1957. During the 1970’s the factory in Norway burned down and was never rebuilt, therefore, putting Scandia out of production. In 2001, Norwegian manufacturer, Fjord Fiesta brought the series back. Working closely with Brattrud himself, they made sure that every detail of the original design was perfected.

Laminated Walnut. Satin chrome base.
Lead time of 8 weeks.

Swivel Chair (not shown) (29.5″w x 29.5″d x 33″h), $2,550.00
Nett Chair (26″w x 29.5″d x 33″h), $2,250.00
Senior Easy Chair w/black leather bolster (29.5″w x 29.5″d x 41.25″h), $2,950.00
Dining Chair (31.25″w x 20.5″d x 32.25″h), $835.00

Drop Stool by Zuo Modern

This is a great price for a stool; it reminds me of a nicer wooden version (see below).

Available in Black, White, Orange, Red, or Green
ABS formed body with high gloss enamel.
22 x 22 x 19″H

$138.00, Buy it here.

(Update: so I found the wooden stool- it’s the Tahiti Stool…but after looking at it a little more it doesn’t have the same seat indentation and the back rise is higher, so it has less resemblance that first thought.)

Spring Chair

Yes, this is a reproduction of the PK20 Easy chair by Poul Kjaerholm. I won’t get into whether or not you should buy the original or the copy, because that’s your choice, but I will point out that this is approximately $6,000 less than the original.

The Spring Chair is a modern reproduction based on a Poul Kjaerholm classic. Features a stainless steel frame and your choice of woven natural cane or top, full grain black Italian leather.

34″L x 33″W x 36″H

$1,249.00 – $1,499.00, Buy it here.

Also, for anyone jonesing for the PK Chaise Lounge ($12,926.10 to $16,607.80), there’s a reproduction of that one as well for $1,875.00: Woven Hammock Chaise, Buy it here.

Black, white, pink or blue.

Tapp Francke’s Neon Lights

I know a lot of you don’t have 3 or 4 grand to spend on a light sculpture, but if by some chance you do, you might consider these.

Creating neon words as neon sculpture, artist Tapp Francke creates fonts and selects color and size based on her response to the meanings and feelings evoked by specific words. “Color is a powerful force that evokes emotions that language can’t often express,” says Francke.

“Dilettante”, 38″ x 7″, $4,500.00, Buy it here.
“Tangible”, 23″ long x 6″ high, $3,700.00, Buy it here.

Also available: Faith and Swallow

Packing Tape (roundup)

Check out a great roundup of packing tapes at ReubenMiller. Just a warning, some (most) are available in the UK.

(Thanks John!)

Hidden Bookcase

Who doesn’t wish they had a hidden door or secret passageway? My childhood readings of Nancy Drew (and the Hardy Boys) lodged that particular want early on, and looky here, if I had 3 G’s I could make that wish come true.

If you’re the do-it-yourself-er type, woodweb.com has drawings for a Hidden-Pivot Bookcase Door worth checking out.

Hidden bookcases smoothly slide on a floor-based rail (included) and conceal any room in your home or office. They open and close very quietly–by pulling–and exhibit no sign of entry when closed. Up to 500 pounds of books and decorations can be placed on the shelves. Instructions are included, but we can set up installation if desired.

Made of oak wood, maple wood or cherry wood, high-strength rail system
Large: 88″h x 66″w
Medium: 88″h x 54″w

$3,000.00, Buy it here.

Alto Rocker by monte

Seems like more and more choices for the modern nursery are cropping up, and this rocker is one of the best options I’ve seen for seating (and the price isn’t too terrible either).

The alto rocker’s distinguishing features are its soothing and gentle rock and its tailored stitching. Similar in comfort, proportions and craftsmanship to the luca glider, the alto rocker also includes a removable lumbar pillow for extra support.
The longevity of the alto rocker’s soft and durable fabric and the handcrafted quality of the dark brown solid maple rocker base will bring your rocker from the nursery to any other room in the home.

Marcio and Pekko Side Tables

These two tables are pretty sleek; maybe also slightly art-deco-ish with the brushed, curved corners? or is that pushing it?

Both tables have dark grey oak veneer table top with a brushed stainless steel frame.

Marcio Side Table: 22.5” dia., 21.25”h, $337.50, Buy it here.

Pekko Side Table: 15.5″ dia., 18.5″ h, $225.00, Buy it here.

Parcel Table, Wood Top

This side table gets gold stars: it weighs three pounds, can be disassembled/packed flat and costs less than $200.

Though only three pounds, the Parcel Table is surprisingly sturdy and indeed, quite strong. It can be disassembled into four identical parts and one square surface, which means it stores and ships a bit easier than that giant block of a coffee table currently living in your home.

Materials: 1/4″ acrylic / baltic birch plywood / mixed. Infinitely stackable / no hardware assembly / flat pack
Designers: Steven Tomlinson and Jeannie Choe for The Design Can
Dimensions: 21.5″ x 21.5″ x 17.5″ (Weighs about 3 lbs.)

Roll-Top Chair

This Roll-Top chair is a clever solution for your child’s toys and such.

The chair is a place for things to be stored as well as a seat. The nature of the storage and the way it is revealed affords it a secret quality, allowing kids a hiding place for their stuff. – Simon Maidment

Dimensions: 24″ deep x 15″ wide x 22″ high – seat at 10″
Materials: solid birch in the tambour, and painted MDF for the bench
Designer: Simon Maidment, for Offi & Company
