Loft Dresser

I know not everyone has $3,400 to spend on a dresser, but this one is from Chadhaus, and, considering their quality craftsmanship (their furniture is handcrafted in Seattle with sustainably-harvested woods), it's no surprise to see a higher price tag. The clean, classic lines of this storage piece will never go out of style; long after you appreciate the under-mounted mechanical slides and solid wood drawers, you'll be able to pass ...Read more

Holy Stool

This stool is a familiar riff on the Milking Stool by UM Projects we posted a few years ago, yet with this variation, the legs are a bit farther apart for stability. So, sit on it, put your feet up, or use it for drinks and books, and know that it won't topple over easily. The legs are dipped in ultra-matte lacquer for a bright contrast.
