Link Side Table

A few of these would look great grouped together to function as a coffee table- or you could do just one beside a sofa or bed- the visual effect of all those rings would certainly create some interest and detailing to an otherwise ordinary room.

“Over 1000 iron rings are handwelded together to sculpt an artistic bubble from thin air. Light, yes, but not lightweight; holds up to 16 lbs, no problem. Raw antique finish leaves weld marks exposed.”

Tetra 4 Ten Drawer Low Cabinet

I know we’ve posted other pieces of this collection before, but this ten drawer cabinet is pretty impressive. I still absolutely love the color block accents.

“The Tetra 4 furniture collection by notNeutral is made up of a collection of storage units inspired by the Greek numerical prefix Tetra, meaning 4, and the 80’s computer game, Tetris which uses 4 segments (4 drawer sizes) to build interlocking structures. From low credenza to tall dresser notNeutral offers four shapes and sizes, all with one accent color drawer of your choice. The Tetra 4 series is playful enough for the nursery and sophisticated enough for a dining room. These contemporary, versatile pieces keep pace with your changing world.”

‘obo’ stackable asymmetrical shelving by jeff miller for baleri italia

The asymmetrical containers are made out of glossy plastic using the same ‘carousel moulding’ technique that was used to make arik levy’s ‘folded’ table – in other words it has a bright, polished, and scratch resistant surface.

It is suggested that ceiling or wall anchorage be used for stacking above 4 units

connectors are available; one element is included.

dimensions: 15.75″w x 15.75″l x 11.8″d

Halogen Credenza

I love the sleek lacquer red of this credenza- looks sharp, and has a pretty decent price to boot.

“Tons of hiding space for your minimal place. Clean lines in slicked lobster red lacquer span almost five feet to broaden storage options. Expansive top pedestals a widescreen. Sleek double doors slide to hide A/V-ready shelves with a gap for cords and back cutouts. Wood composite; powdercoated metal “L” legs and slim vertical door pulls. Also available in white.”

lex armchair

Somehow both minimal and grand in scale, the lex was introduced by Artifort during the Milan Furniture Fair 2004.

“ergonomical and functional comfort make the lex armchair exceptional, a step above other armchairs. the frugality of its design and its minimalism provide the sofa with a timeless elegance. its clear lines and qualities speak for themselves. the goal in designing this sofa was to maintain a sleek visual shape that would be both distinct and timeless.”

Shimmering Hourglass Table

‘Svelte’ and ‘shimmering’ are two great adjectives, and I guess they do describe this little table rather well. Might be just the thing to add a little bit of a luxe look to a room…

“The svelte hourglass shape has been crafted from durable and lustrous aluminum and adds a sleek presence to your room.”

Fresno Table

If you like the look of mid century classics but can’t quite fork over the money for a collector’s item, this table might do nicely. With its walnut veneer and leg detail, it hits the right note of authentic design without the up charge for an original that you would find in a dealer’s shop.

“The Fresno dining table creates a warm ambiance in any contemporary space. The Fresno is sleek and simple in design, providing an elegant setting for dining and entertaining with a touch of mid century charm. The frame of the Fresno is made of hardwood; top is made of MDF with an American walnut veneer.”

I like these little tables because they’re almost like the stark white displays in museums or art galleries. Here, it’s less about the table and more about what you’re putting on it.

Sly Chair

This isn’t exactly a design classic, but there’s something really endearing about it. Perhaps it’s the reinterpretation of the 60’s view of modern furniture. It’s perfectly scaled and in a nice cotton/nylon blend.

I’m certainly a fan of Harry Allen, and I’m pleased as punch that he’s got this new “books book” shelf (sounds funny). I might have to add this to my list of things to get once I figure out where I would put it.

“The Books Book Shelf by Harry Allen has a matte white resin finish and is wall mounted. From his famed Reality series, the Books book shelf has been cast from actual books.”
