FURNISHINGS

Jan Hoekstra Cookware

Given the 2003 Red Dot Design award, Jan Hoekstra’s Cookware Series is designed with some really cool features:

“Saucepan twists and locks in place so liquids can be safely poured from notches on either side. In addition to giving you the convenience of one-handed straining, the interior of this Saucepan has a convenient measuring gauge so you can see how much you’ve added or removed. The gauge is in metric, attesting to the collection’s European roots. For the cook with too little storage space (and who doesn’t?), Hoekstra’s Cookware is made to nest together for compact storage. Made with a heat-resistant coated exterior in a choice of three colors and stainless steel interior, this Saucepan is suitable for all types of heat sources, from gas to induction cook tops.”

Opus Shelving System

I’m sort of flabbergasted by how awesome these are. Not only are they cool to look at, but they are made from 100% recyclable polypropylene, and can be used both indoors and out, even in wet environments. Available in both black and white.

Squat Worktable

This is such a deal.

“The Worktable is a versatile storage table for more flexible living environments. The table is designed with everyday tasks in mind – eating, sewing, preparing food, drawing, crafts, computing, surfing the web, paying bills, changing babies, repotting plants, homework, and scrap-booking.
Discreet cable-routing slots in the sides and lower panels keep tangles of wires out of sight but close at hand. The worktable incorporates nearly 5 cubic feet of storage into a solid, flat-packed furniture piece.”

Ripples Bench

This bench takes advantage of five different layers of wood- an engaging design that will no doubt be at home among other classics in years to come.

“To create his Ripples Collection (2003), Toyo Ito was inspired by the appearance of concentric circles spreading across the surface of water that’s been disturbed by a thrown pebble…Created with five layers of different woods – walnut, mahogany, cherry, oak and ash – Ripples is created by pressing together 5mm-thick layers of each wood…Due to the natural variations in the grain of these woods, every Ripples Bench is unique.”

Alex Drawer Unit

So, normally we don’t post things from Ikea because it’s just too easy. They’ve got loads of inexpensive suitable/good design, and we figure people don’t need much help there. But, I should probably share that we recently redesigned our office, and the main change was from a simple long desk to an L-shaped one with this added drawer unit underneath. For a little more than $100, it works pretty well and looks pretty decent. Maybe it’s not for everyone, but if you’re on a budget it works just fine.

**Also, Apartment Therapy recently invited us to share our workspace pics on their ‘Behind the Blog’ feature, so if you’re curious about where I post from, you can see it here. (And in response to one of the comments- yes, the poster is everywhere but I don’t care. I love it anyways. So there.)

Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair

I absolutely love this chair. We ended up getting ours off of ebay, but if you’re not the patient type that will wait forever until one turns up for bidding, there are several stores that offer a brand new one in exchange for a chunk of change.

“Aluminum Group chairs were originally developed in 1958 as a special project by Charles and Ray Eames for a private residence being designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard. With the addition of plush, 2-inch thick upholstered seat cushions, the Soft Pad Group chairs retain the style of the earlier chairs and enhance long-term comfort.”

Save 15% on some great upholstery items from DWR through January 29…($400 savings on this particular one.)

“The frame is made by hand and draws on techniques Bendtsen learned from
his father, who also designed and built furniture. The foam seat
cushions he uses are sourced from Italy because he hasn’t found any
others that offer his ideal mix of firm support and comfort. And the
removable cushion covers, while not a flashy feature, are all about
maximizing Neo’s functionality as an easy-to-live-with and
easy-to-clean seating collection.”
