Penelope Lounge Chair

Penelope Lounge Chair
It seems like outdoor furniture is either really nice and super expensive or pretty cheap and not great quality. The Penelope Lounge Chair seems to fit comfortably in between those two extremes, as it is made from a powder-coated steel frame with handwoven waterproof plastic as its seat and back. Hairpin legs and a wide seat add modern styling to the otherwise minimal design. It's stackable, too. Material: Xiloplast weave...Read more

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
