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

Skultuna Basso Coaster

Skultuna Basso Coaster

No more wine or champagne drips on your precious tabletop, because this Skultuna Basso Coaster will set the bottle dead center each and every time, thanks to its raised center surface.

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

Muuto’s Grain Pendant

Muuto’s Grain Pendant

At first glance, you'll most likely wish Muuto's new Grain Pendant was a bit bigger than ~8" in diameter. However, once you see a few lined up over a kitchen island or a large grouping over a table, you'll be glad that it's not too large, as the size is perfect for multiples. Get up close and personal, and you'll see the shade is made from a mix of bamboo fibers ...Read more
