Traby Coffee Table

I was at my friend’s great loft last weekend, and right in front of his >$18,000 sofa is this little blocky table. Certain that it too came with a large price tag, I was quite surprised to find out it was a $100 solid* wood table from Ikea. The photo doesn’t really do it justice. This little guy can hold his own in sophisticated settings. Trust me on this one.

The lower tray is completely removable.

edit: it’s actually not solid wood. But it certainly feels like it.

Fiberboard, Ash veneer, Clear acrylic lacquer, Ash veneer, Honeycomb structure recycled paper filling, Particleboard

Thanks Brad!

Cadiz and Zinc Stool by John Reeves

I’m not quite sure where I first saw these, but each are entirely unique stools without the shocking price tag you’d normally expect (not that they’re cheap, they’re just a little more affordable than some of the designer pieces out there).

Cadiz Stool, White Porcelain, 18″ x 14″ x 14″, $525.00:
“The stools are shod with teak shoes to match the top of the accompanying table and also prevent the glazed edge of the porcelain from chipping against the floor.”

Louis Zinc Stool, Zinc Finish, 16″ x 16″ x 17.5″, $387.50:
“Cold pressed saddle seat in mild steel, stamped out Louis profiles legs folded at 90 degrees and welded by hand create this charming metal stool. Finished in an industrial zinc plate to allow for outdoor use; to compliment the Louis Zinc Table. Stackable stool in steel with a zinc plated outdoor finish..”

Designed by John Reeves of Reeves Design.

Floating Credenzas

I was taking a look at the inspirational remodel in the Chicago apartment of Andreas over at apartment therapy, and practically flipped over the use of the Ikea cabinets as floating credenzas. The best thing about this DIY job is that it can be accomplished fairly inexpensively. If I were to guess I’d say that he used 30″x18″ fan top cabinet and the Strecket handles.

While this costs a pretty penny and then some, it sure is something. It reminds me of Jacobsen’s
Egg Chair, just more edgy/angular.

frame covered with injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam and
polyester fiber. the base consists of a lacquered steel tube, in rifle
brown and gray, and the footrest is chrome. comes in three different
styles: armchair, revolving armchair, and armchair with footrest.”

armchair: 30.3″w x 43.3″h x 35.3″d, $2,932.00
armchair with footrest: 30.3″w x 43.3″h x 49.5″d, $3,807.00
revolving armchair: 31.5″w x 43.3″h x 34.8″d, $4,026.00
revolving stool: 25.5″w x 13.8″h x 24.8″d, $1,723.00
