Wave Sofa by Palau

I just discovered the design group Palau from the Netherlands, and they have some pretty inspiring work.

“Made in The Netherlands, the Wave features environmentally-friendly Kvadrat fabrics. These fabrics bear the EU’s environmental “flower” label that can only be awarded when the product’s life cycle is among the best in the market.”

Bello Albero Coffee Table

Sizing in at 5′ long, this coffee table would do a great job of filling up a room (if you’re lucky enough to need that sort of thing).

“Roughhewn planks of recycled wood are beautifully rustic, while iron caster legs add a modern feel. Perfect for adding a hint of nature to sleek spaces.”

Dog Pod by Glenn Ross

Yes, this bed is pretty expensive for an animal that is probably content to eat food out of the trash, but if you have a certain aesthetic you’re going for this bed may fit the bill.

Frank Table

The iron base of this round dining table seems to have more of a mid century flair to it- perhaps a set of vintage chairs would complement it nicely?

Non, Rubber Chair by Komplot Design

If the comfort and credential of being in the permanent collection of the MoMA isn’t enough, I’m sure that the fact you can turn over this chair and show the credits to your friends will make the price tag a bit easier to swallow (at least in theory, right?).

‘Non has won numerous design awards and is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Straight and simple in design, the stacking chair is comfortable thanks to the rubber it’s made of and the “built-in spring bands”. The underside of the chair features interesting molded rubber movie-style credits.
The chairs be stacked together to save space. NON can be used both indoors and outdoors. The pieces are completely waterproof and can be left outdoors permanently.’

Color Options: Black, Gray, Red, Green

Starck BaObab Desk

Sometimes I think Starck’s work is too ‘blobby’ but in this case I think it really works. Just get this desk, some Molo soft walls and some freeze dried ice cream and you’re all set to work in the 22nd century.

Available in: white, light grey, light yellow, light green, and aqua (shown).

Set of 10 Low Trunk Tables

Yes, the price does seem more on the high side of what seems reasonable for a few side tables, but considering there are 10 of them, each one sporting different shades of neutral enamel tops, it doesn’t seem as bad..maybe because each one (if sold separately) would be $175.

“Driftwood spread across the shore is the impetus behind this unique design. The ultimate in modern nature, these low tables are fully functional, as they are fastened with metal and enamel tops. An inspired way to redefine and re-use earth’s creations. Natural.”

From 7 3/4″ to 15 3/4″.

Round Collection – Lounge Chair 469

The metal mesh used for the body of this chair is so visually light it almost appears to be made from fabric netting. It’s almost a shame to categorize it as an outdoor piece (‘almost’ because I’m not complaining).

“The Round Collection designed by Christope Pillet is both simple and elegant with a flowing design sure to have timeless appeal. The Lounge Chair features a steel frame with a seat made of pre-galvanised metal sheet. All Emu products from the Advanced Collection come with a 5 year warranty.”

Available in your choice of light grey, red, warm grey and white.

36.2″ x 33.8″ x 32.7″ height

Side Chair 465 also available for $285.00. (24.4″ x 22.4″ x 31.9″ height)

Part ridiculous, part genius, these magazine straps take your stack of magazines and tether them into some impromptu seating.

While I’m not quite sure what this table is made of, it does have the interesting (rough?) three-legged base that contrasts nicely with the rounded/oblong glass top.

Tepee (from DWR)

A Tepee? Really?…Uh, okay, I guess if you’ve got the money, why not have the perfect space to get away and be by yourself, or take your friends/family and tell stories or something?

“For adventurers of all ages, the classic Tepee (2008) is a simple solution for spending time outdoors with minimal impact on the surrounding landscape. This one was crafted for DWR Tools for Living by Dave Ellis…We chose his work because of his quality materials and construction that provides proper ventilation, flame resistance and reinforced stress points. What’s also unique about this design is the sewn-in floor liner that allows proper air flow, while ensuring that nothing accidentally leaves or enters the Tepee…The exterior canvas is tightly woven, preshrunk 100% cotton Army Duck that’s finished with a Sunforger baked-in process to make the canvas mildew resistant and water repellent. Campfire songs and ghost stories not included.”

Terra Stool by Roost

The thick wood on top of such (seemingly) spindly iron legs makes for an interesting little stool/table.
