Cobra Wall Sconce

The Cobra Wall Sconce might just be the coolest under-the-radar sconce ever. Why? Well, look at the subtle curve of the shade, for starters, and its classic oval shape. Did you know the Swedish architect and designer Greta Grossman designed it way back in 1950? It still looks thoroughly modern, in the quiet way of most mid-century Swedish modernism. The shade may be tilted 90 degrees and rotated a full 360 degrees, allowing ...Read more

‘Svelto’ Round Stacking Stool

At first glance, you could be forgiven for letting your eyes slide right over this stool on to other more exciting things. However, on second sight, if you don't notice the lovely detail of the slightly concave top, and then, of course, the leg shape and joinery underneath (you do have to turn furniture over occasionally, it's the nature of appreciating design), then I'll have to give you a verbal ...Read more
