Happy Birthday Crank Music Box

Knockout Side Tables

Knockout Side Tables
Simplistic side tables always get my vote, but these cross over into the minimalistic category, which has me making imaginary placards in their honor. They're just so serious, and would be especially great next to a silly chair or sofa (you know the term: juxtaposition). With several shaped bases in solid white marble, black marble, or green Swedish marble, you'll have to consider a cluster (if you can afford it)...Read more

Harris Sofa by Montauk

Harris Sofa by Montauk
Sofas are the most important of furnishings, right up there with mattresses. After all, we spend lots of time on our sofas- reading, watching shows and movies, sleeping. So, you might as well invest in something you really, truly love, right? For a recent project I looked and looked for the right sofa: it needed to be at least 8' long, low, streamlined and soft. As in, take-a-nap-on-it soft. As...Read more
