031 lin pod bench

This is slightly reminiscent of something you might find in a doctor’s or dentist’s waiting room, if the doctor or dentist was unbelievably cool. If you buy this, you might have to pretend to be unbelievably cool, otherwise it just won’t work. Trust me.

Slender contours of upholstery fluidly move from one feature to the next. the backrest slopes downward to the seat which extends outward to contain a pot of greenery. By placing plant life in such an intimate position, Lin Pod Bench creates a peaceful atmosphere that connects us more deeply with nature. A solid wood leg frame raises the upholstered form, enhancing the inherent visual levity.

Design Leif.designpark, 2007.
Offered in traditional oiled oak, white oiled oak or traditional oiled Walnut. Upholstered in your choice of cotton or wool upholstery.

Studio North Design Modular Shelving

Pictured in the post below (classic study solution), this modular shelving unit is a great alternative to the basic elements most of us succumbed to in our university years; not only can you combine the elements in whichever way you choose (low tv stand, medium credenza-ish bookcase, etc.) but you can add to it as your needs grow.

“Sabrina and Dylan Jones launched Studio North Design (SND) in 2001, bringing attention to an often overlooked material: forest-salvaged, old-growth Douglas fir. A straight-grained, amber-colored wood, it’s acquired through forest salvage logging, where skilled sawyers mine usable wood out of logs that have long since fallen in the forests of the Pacific Coast. Their Modular Shelving (2004) refines the basic concept of dorm-room-style cinderblock and plank shelving. Consisting of simple blocks and shelves in coordinating sizes, the additive system means that shelves can be added and taken away as desired. Compose the pieces horizontally as a credenza or media storage, or build vertically to create a bookshelf. The Joneses’ non-wasteful approach to design includes up-cycling: Remnants from the creation of one product become the basis of another. It’s their belief that wood used in its natural state, that’s consciously sourced, is one of the most eco-friendly materials available.”

Heaven Chair

Such a lovely choice for outdoor seating, though I’d opt for indoors just so I could gaze upon its beauty each and every day. Just kidding (sort of).

Using a new process that extrudes pre-galvanised metal sheet into a 3D mesh sling, Christophe Pillet and Jean-Marie Massaud’s Heaven chair combines a barely-there appearance with a sturdy structure that can be left outdoors permanently.

W24 x D22.4 x H31.5 in.

MauMau Bench by Antlantico

Take a look at this bench; the cross braces create pattern and interest on an otherwise simple spare design.

The wood used to create this product is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Made from solid wood, MauMau Bench pushes the boundaries of the material, creating a sturdy timber form that appears to have been constructed from folded paper. What at a distance seems to be a basic shape, becomes increasingly complex as you move closer.

Available solid woods: Oak (specify white or traditional oiled), Cherry, Walnut (add $450), or Painted Beech (Shown in traditional oiled Walnut)

Classic Butterfly Chair

So, here’s a rather personal recommendation for anyone searching for some patio furniture on a small budget: I recently decided to get a couple of butterfly chairs for our patio because a) they’re inexpensive, b) they’re decent looking and c) comfortable. After spending an enjoyable evening last weekend sipping mojitos in seated comfort (knowing I didn’t spend an arm and a leg helped), I can say I’m relatively happy with my purchase*. I got the red color with the black frame (as pictured, polyester fabric on a folding steel frame.), but there are all sorts of options to choose from.

27L x 33W x 35H inches

(*If for any reason I become unhappy by the quality or construction, I’ll make a note of updating this post)

Grimmen Bed Frame

I was just at Ikea and I actually really liked this piece in person. It has a cover which looks like wool (but is actually a synthetic of some sort).

L7 Console Table

Not a bad price for a bamboo console table. I like how the legs stick out ever so slightly at the top.

It’s hip to be square (or in this case, rectangular). A very considerate console, our L7 side table is a “green” grouping of quite right angles. Dual bamboo tops are supported by a stained wood frame, creating generous amounts of geometric appeal. Crafted with non-toxic environmentally-friendly glues and stains, and making use of fast-growing sustainable bamboo, the L7 side table is smart on many levels. Behind a sofa, dividing a room, as a sideboard or bookshelf – you’ll love this one square from square one! Imported. Spot clean.

Clip chair by moooi

This distinctive chair has interesting beginnings…

designed by blasius osko and oliver deichman for moooi, the clip chair has a solid beech frame and folds flat. according to the designers: “Whilst strolling around a Bulgarian market, a small, foldable basket caught our attention. Single slats were beaded on ropes to form 2 hinged surfaces, which could be transformed into a curved 3 dimensional object. We improved this stunning mechanism, both technically and visually, to create a foldable lounge chair – the ‘Clip Chair’. When open, it’s straight identical slats form a spacious seating space of supreme comfort. This simple design not only makes the chair highly practical, but also creates a sculptural object of outstanding aesthetic value, whether folded or open.”

dimensions: 28.1″ x 33.5″ x 25.6″d; seat height: 11.8″
available in white, black or wenge.
