FURNISHINGS

Tab Shelf by Phil Procter

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.

Clad 3 Door Credenza

Warm, solid wood wrapped in cool, smooth steel sounds like a match made in heaven. Add storage to the mix and you’ve got us hooked. The Clad 3 Door Credenza is right at the 2 grand price point (walnut is just over; hickory, just under), which is pretty reasonable considering the sturdy and sleek materials. Integrated groove pulls keeps surfaces clean while soft closure mechanisms keeps things quiet. There’s a smaller 2 Door Credenza if you’re short on space. And, even better, the Clad Collection is from Blu Dot, which is has a 20% off sale now through October 29.

All Plastic Chair

Here’s something to get excited about… Jasper Morrison has taken the character of the archetypal wooden chair used in Europe for decades and updated its appearance by making it entirely out of plastic.

LBR-2 Book Bench

Do I really need to explain how this bench is worth every cent of its price tag? Seating + Books = (!). It has an angled shelf for books (why, yes, I am nerding out a little bit over that detail). That will give you a perfect place to keep your favorites, tucked away under a handy seating surface.

Herman Stackable Stool

How’s this for a stackable stool/side table? It’s got a pretty friendly price and features an oval-shaped seat on a sturdy powder-coated metal frame. That and the colors will have you considering just how many you may want to add to your own abode.

Profile Folding Chair

Wait, now, are we seeing a folding chair that looks cool? That might seem like the wrong word, but look, it’s true. Clean lines and a minimal treatment makes this folding chair just right for modernists. Too bad that it’ll take several more hundred-dollar bills to get one of these rather than the standard metal chairs, but we’re used to that sort of pricing by now (right?).

Sunday Sofa

This sofa looks like a pretty perfect place for a long nap, don’t you think? Sort of like sweatpants for your living room, it’ll keep you comfortable while signaling you give approximately zero forks what other people think of you. Just kidding, this sofa isn’t nearly that bad… but it does look that comfortable.

Umbra Shift Triplet Shelf

Okay, wait, a three-tiered shelf of whitewashed wood and powder coated steel for $300, and shipping is included? Is that right? Sure looks like it. Snap one up if you need a little more storage space for your books and such.

Painted Oak Stools

Maybe you can go chop down a tree, take off all the bark, then paint it and add a sturdy woven cotton handle, but some of us have other things to do. Plus, when these stools are less than $100 and made from sustainably harvested oak, it’s awfully hard to resist such affordable seats.

Tier Side Table

Take a look at the legs of this table; see how they are on the sides rather than the corners? This cantilevered effect appears to give you a little more available surface area, or at least a more interesting appearance. There’s a matching Coffee Table too, but it deserves its own post next week.

Lisboa Cork Stool

Short on seating? This guy is a smart buy that won’t break the bank. In comparison, just take a look at the Vitra Cork Stools, which I’ve always liked, priced at $490 each. And can we talk about how cork is such great material? It’s sustainable and it has a great texture that adds warmth and interest to any space.

Offset Coffee Table and Stool

Fair warning, the price of this table may be too good to be true, as it’s the same price as the stool. Nevertheless, take a look at the three skewed, off-kilter legs; aren’t they fun? They’re just a bit off-center, which gives a playful feel to the heavy, solid form.

The Abbott Stool

This three-legged stool is comfortable in its nudity. Solid construction with tenon joints, shapely legs, and a slightly beveled top combine to make it easy on the eyes; it’d be a shame for it to hide any of its parts behind paint.

Cloud High Back Sofa

Prepare yourself, for this high-backed sofa carries a high price tag. But you can understand why, can’t you, especially when considering the feather and foam-filled cushions, slim steel legs, and tall, curved shell that envelopes you whenever you sit down to rest your weary feet. You’re sure to find that this sofa provides a quiet spot for reading or watching movies (or napping), which is a valuable thing in any busy household.
