FURNISHINGS

Brooklyn Desk

The Brooklyn Desk has clever little storage boxes that slip over its edge, which means the boxes can be arranged to suit the user’s preferences exactly. Now, do keep in mind it is a smaller worktop, so it’s ideal for smaller people (and smaller spaces), and would be especially suitable for a growing child, as the desk height is adjustable (up to adult height). Perhaps with enough interest, Oeuf will make a larger version? One can hope.

Bookniture

Furniture in a book? Yes, please. This was a Kickstarter project, but now you can purchase directly from Bookniture or from MoMA Store to have your very own book that transforms into a stool/ottoman/table, quick as can be. Maybe it’s perfect for your very small space (and budget), or maybe you just appreciate the fact that it’d be easy to take out to your patio or to the park. Either way, it’s easy to store away when not in use, as you can slide it in amongst your books on a bookshelf.

Metalwork Nightstand

This Metalwork Nightstand has been on the radar lately, and what a pleasant surprise to find the price in a very affordable range. The hot rolled steel option is $249, the white lacquer $199, and, if you don’t mind a little celadon, you can get it at $139. Celadon? Our new favorite color, I think.

Corner Shelf

This Corner Shelf by designer Kyuhyung Cho begins at the left, “a natural starting point to organise our thoughts and also our objects.” Hang the larger shelf vertically or horizontally (or place it on your desk) and use the medium and small elements to further divide and offset the space.

‘Diamond’ Poufs

Q: What do you get when you combine Studio Bertjan Pot with a company that has the name of a evil sorcerer a long history in Persian carpets? That’s not a joke, by the way, it’s just a way to solicit an exclamation of admiration of said studio. A: You get a wonderfully mixed triangular kilim pattern, in all sorts of “spicy colours” on rugs and poufs. Note: gird your loins, for the prices aren’t cheap.

‘Svelto’ Round Stacking Stool

At first glance, you could be forgiven for letting your eyes slide right over this stool on to other more exciting things. However, on second sight, if you don’t notice the lovely detail of the slightly concave top, and then, of course, the leg shape and joinery underneath (you do have to turn furniture over occasionally, it’s the nature of appreciating design), then I’ll have to give you a verbal slap for not paying attention. The Svelto Stool stacks for storage, with each stool rotating slightly from the one below.

Marmeria Modular Bookcase

See this small, sculptural piece of marble? It sits at just under 16″ high, and could function as a shorter side table alongside your favorite chair. However, Italian architecture firm Studio Archea intended this piece, along with its three other siblings, to compose a larger, modular bookcase.

Sidera Chair

Do you see a little Eames influence in this side chair? Maybe it’s the wood dowel legs, or maybe it’s the molded plastic seat and back. In any case, the expanding crosshatch pattern places it firmly in today’s world rather than amongst the mid century modern classics. You’ll probably be pleasantly surprised at the price tag: $250. Not too bad for a stylish side or desk chair, right?

Alle Coffee Tables

Whaaaat the what. There’s a tempting sale over at Hem; the Alle Coffee Tables are so very affordable at the moment you’d be silly not to grab a couple. Don’t be too afraid of the red color, by the way, as it would provide a nice color contrast to an otherwise neutral interior. If that still makes you nervous, there’s black, ivory, pale oak, light blue, gray, eggplant, and walnut- all excellent choices.

The Floyd Platform Bed

With all the gift getting and giving craziness, some excellent furnishing options have been piling up. One of which is the Floyd Platform Bed, made by the same smarties that brought us the Floyd Leg.

Engineered to be modular and sturdy, the Floyd Bed is an answer to a renter’s prayers. It’s both minimal and low-profile, and slots together thanks to metal supports, honeycomb core panels, and a tensioning strap. It’s easy to assemble and disassemble, and thus move from place to place when the time comes. Want to back the project to get your very own? There’s only a couple of days left in the campaign, so get to it!

Hideaway Folding Guest Bed

Winter brings holidays and those holidays usually bring guests. That may or may not be something you enjoy, especially if you’re short on space. Here’s something that might make your younger* guests a little more comfortable without taking up too much room the rest of the year. The Hideaway Folding Guest Bed is like a suitcase when closed (with a convenient handle for carrying) and can be used as a ottoman or be stored under a bed or in a closet. Open up the triple-fold mattress for a comfortable sleeping space for one, no fussing about with an air pump or a leaky air mattress.

The Palmerston Stool

Here’s another excellent option for a counter stool, straight from Coolican & Company. Handcrafted from solid Black Walnut (harvested on the Niagara Escarpment), the counter height stool has a classic turned leg with an interesting faceted top for comfort. The pared down styling makes it a future classic, as it would work well with many other design periods. The price is pretty reasonable too- or, at least not crazy expensive considering some of our other favorites.

Simone Table and Bench

If you’re looking for a super-minimal table or bench, you might like the looks of the Simone Collection by 57st. design. Double-thick Baltic birch plywood has dovetailed ends (spaced in irregular intervals) for visual interest and overall strength. The short or long bench would do well in an entryway or hallway, and won’t break the bank, thankfully. Free shipping, too, just in case that sweetens the deal.

Gray Fabric Sofa

If you’ve ever shopped for a sofa with a clean, minimal style, you know that most of the time they’re shockingly expensive. This Gray Sofa is not (in comparison). It has reverse-stitched seams, the requisite low profile, and an option of high or low arm height…or, do one of each, as shown in the image above. Custom fabric is also available. Curious? Yeah, me too. This may help your decision as well: each piece of Interior Define’s furniture collection* is made-to-order and every piece has a 365-day return policy. Pretty crazy (in a good way), right?

Tab Shelf

Sure, it’s a shelf, what of it? Well, this powder-coated steel shelf has a ridge down the middle to keep photos and art propped up as well as a lip on the front. That allows you to display all sorts of things without worrying about little (or big) things falling off, which makes it suitable for anywhere you need an extra display or storage space.
