Afteroom Bench by Menu

Afteroom Bench by Menu
You could say that this price is kind of high for a skinny leather bench, but then I'd need to remind you that it has a marble side table incorporated into its powder-coated metal frame and it would be a cool piece to have in an entryway or odd corner space, especially as it would add seating without taking up too much visual or physical space. Then you'd say I'm...Read more

That's a "meteor hurricane."

Billy II Box

Billy II Box
Need more storage space for paperwork? You could get a ho-hum boring rolling file from an office supply store, or you could shell out a little more dough for one that actually looks like a fair amount of design thought went into its creation. Ethnicraft's Universo Positivo collection has caught our eye before, and their Billy II Box stands out for its combination of solid oak and lacquered stainless steel....Read more

I have Ole Jensen's Dustpan and Brush, but this Sweep-It Set by Klaus Rath for Stelton looks like it would be more functional for everyday messes. The...Read more

One of the more exciting things to happen in the furniture retail world this month is the arrival of Commune's collection over at West Elm.
