FURNISHINGS

BLTD webclip

Yes, we’ve jumped on the bandwagon (albeit rather late) due to many a request. For those of you with iPhones, you can now add our BLTD webclip icon to your homescreen, allowing access with a mere touch of your finger. We actually created it a while back, but are a little late in letting you know…apologies, apologies. Just delete your old link and add it in again to pull up the new icon. If you’ve not added BLTD yet (gasp!) or if you’re not sure how, here’s a quick walk through:

On your iPhone:
1. Find BLTD in Safari
2. Tap on the ‘+’ sign
3. Tap ‘add to home screen’
4. Ta-da! The icon should appear on your home screen

Those of you living in or around London will benefit most from this particular post, as I’m not sure how this would survive a trip to the U.S., but I thought it deserved a mention.

Thanks Gigi!

Corrales Cocktail Table

This plank wood coffee/cocktail table catches the eye not only for the type of wood used, but also that it only has three legs. It seems to have the same sort of shape of the Girard Table, but in a less refined and rugged sort of way.

” Absolutely natural cocktail table in solid Margosa. Each table is made from an individual plank of wood and is completely unique.

The wood is dried for several months and allowed to develop natural cracks and separations. After being shaped, it is finished with a natural wax for protection.”

48 L x 21 W x 14 H inches

Burnt Credenza 07, A Numbered Edition by Rob Zinn

This might need a ‘platinum member’ sticker, because while I sure can’t afford it, there’s a very small percentage of those of you who can. This reclaimed Douglas Fir credenza seems to have its credentials: hand carved/foundry cast solid bronze legs, intricate cut-out pulls, powder coated aluminum doors, signed and numbered by the designer (there’s only 10), not to mention the wood has been scorched and oiled to get the right finish. It’s a beauty.

“When scorched with fire and rubbed with oil, the lake-salvaged Douglas Fir takes on a richly colored and heavily textured black finish. The sculptural legs were originally carved in plaster by the designer, and later cast in solid bronze. Punctuated by crisp satin white doors with intricate door pulls, this piece is truly unique.”

84″W x 30″H x 19″D

Mid-Century Sofa

Here’s a nice little economical sofa that can be converted to a twin size bed. The conversion isn’t done quickly as the back support needs to be unscrewed, but it is a dual function piece none the less.
