FURNISHINGS

Flare Table

I’m still getting used to the price of this table, and the idea of being able to switch out the pattern of the legs.

“An amazingly versatile piece by Marcel Wanders, capable of matching any room imaginable! Its secret is in its thick, conical legs, made of clear, standard injection-moulded polycarbonate. Change the look of the design by simply inserting a pattern of your choice! Two sets of graphic inserts are available, designed by Marcel Wanders or Javier Mariscal… or choose the blank sheets of art paper and add your own personal touch to the design!”

Rectangular top: 63″W x 31.5″L x 27.75″H
Square top: 35.5″W x 35.5″L x 27.75″H

Eames Molded Plastic Armchair

We haven’t posted all the classic mid century pieces, so we’ll be trying to correct that by highlighting a few every now and again.

“Originally made with fiberglass-reinforced plastic, these chairs now take advantage of the benefits of more eco-friendly polypropylene. The molded shell seat has a high, flexible back and a deep seat pocket. The waterfall seat edge promotes comfortable seating for extended periods of time by reducing pressure on the backs of thighs.”

Polypropylene; chrome-plated steel base; plastic glides.

Plateau Wall Box

These hand made white oak or black walnut wall storage boxes can be customized to customers specifications.

They are made with traditional construction techniques with mitered joints.

“The Plateau Boxes are designed to frame objects in a natural, unobtrusive environment. Because they are blindly fastened to the wall, the boxes —and the objects they hold— exhibit a unique lightness of form. Each box is independent unto itself, so users can apply their creativity to configure the boxes on a wall.

Available in black walnut or riftsawn white oak, with sliding door and shelf options. Custom size and proportions available upon request, please call for details.”

I went to the new CB2 opening in Manhattan the other day and was pleased to get to see this close up. It’s well constructed and generously proportioned.

“No matter how many times you relocate, redecorate, change linens, change wall color…our white wonder is wonderful. Padded and upholstered head to toe (even the side rails) in pure white all-cotton canvas pre-treated with a protective stain-resistant finish… Benchmade in the USA with the same quality and attention to detail as our upholstered sofas. Kiln-dried hardwood and wood composite frame.”

This is the perfect sectional- very clean lines and an unscary price tag (considering all modern sectionals seem to be about $2000 more than a regular person can afford). Pillows are sold separately, so if you’re not so fond of stripes, don’t worry.

“Clean uni-height backs/arms angle deep to comfort. Overscale pieces work small spaces solo, or lofts in combination…Classic textured cotton in go-with-everything putty, double-needle stitched at the seams. Barely there T-legs in solid aluminum.”
